Uncanny X-Men #1
Marvel Comics

Description: The true flagship book of the X-Men returns. In the wake of the Phoenix, the world has changed and is torn on exactly what Cyclops and his team of X-Men are–visionary revolutionaries or dangerous terrorists?

By: Brian Michael Bendis, Chris Bachalo

Powers Bureau #1
Marvel Comics

Description: A new chapter of the Eisner Award-winning POWERS that sends Deena Pilgrim into the big leagues!

Pilgrim is now a federal agent and dealing with the biggest powers cases in the entire country. But will this new life close the closet full of skeletons she carries with her? (Absolutely not!) And what does this mean for her old partner, Walker?

This is a bold game-changer for the iconic crime superhero comic that started it all and an amazing jumping-on point for new readers!

Red Sonja Unchained #1 (of 4)
Dynamite Entertainment

Description: Picking up where Peter V. Brett’s Red Sonja: Blue one-shot left off, with Sonja fleeing the scene of a murder after killing a young man who tried to test her vow. Bereft of her signature chain-mail and the reputation that goes with it, she must rely on her wits and her sword as she embarks on a new series of adventures. Guilt-ridden, penniless and on the run, she is unaware that the innocent blood she spilled has awakened the dark spirit of the demon whose pelt she wears.

Planet of the Apes Special #1
Boom! Studios

Description: Daryl Gregory returns to the PLANET OF THE APES in this epic over-sized issue, featuring fan-favorite artist Diego Barreto (IRREDEEMABLE)! Featuring 32 pages of new story and art!

When the Lawgiver, the revered ape leader, was assassinated by a human, Ape City fell into a vicious civil war. Ten years have passed since the horrific violence fell on Ape City and a fragile peace is finding footing. Voice Alaya, once the revered leader of the ape ruling class, has been deposed and awaits sentencing in Ape City’s prison; meanwhile Sully, the exiled leader of the human resistance has begun to rally forces, both human and ape. Little do they know they’re both on a collision course towards an even greater danger neither can even begin to imagine…

Called ‘The best PLANET OF THE APES comic ever. And one of my favorite comics of the year, period.’ by Jason Aaron (SCALPED, WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN), Daryl Gregory’s epic continues!
