Arkham City: the Order of the World brings everything crashing to a close. It's an Arkham Asylum story. There's no way things were going to end quietly.

Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club #4

Feb 1, 2022

Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club is a briskly paced little story that shows the Mignolaverse isn't all looming shadows and foreboding futures. There's a goofiness to it that will never quite go away.

Slumber (2022) #1

Mar 21, 2022

Slumber's cast isn't here to ask what our dreams say about us. They're here to shoot the annoying bits and get a paycheck. Hopefully not give in to stress.

Venom: Lethal Protector (2022) #1

Mar 22, 2022

A whole menagerie of D-list villains are out to annoy Venom. He's probably going to do a lot more than annoy them back.
