Agent 47: Birth Of The Hitman #1
writer: Chris Sebela artist: Jonathan Lau, Ariel Medel covers: Philip Tan (A) Jonathan Lau (B) Gameplay Variant (C)

47 and his handler, Diana Burnwood, are a team responsible for some of the most ruthless, efficient and untraceable assassinations across the globe. But before they were operatives of the shadowy International Contracts Association, 47 and Burnwood were on their own separate paths in life — streets lined with blood, bullets and revenge. As 14-year-old Diana begins a mission to track down the people who killed her parents, the one responsible, 47, is struggling to free himself and his brother, 6, from the mysterious Institute which has bred them as killers since they were kids. With a story that stretches from the heartland of America to the Berlin Wall, Lone Wolves will trace the birth of the legendary Hitman and the secret past of the woman behind him who pulls the string and knows just how hard taking a life truly is.

Bettie Page #4
writer: David Avallone artist: Esau Figueroa, Bane Duncan Wade covers: Joseph Michael Linsner (A) Scott Chantler (B) Photo Variant (C)

Someone wants to enslave American minds… but who’s behind it all? The Sky Science Cult? Pacific AeroSpace Technologies? Ol’ Joe Stalin himself? None of them is a match for Bettie Page, as our high-heeled heroine goes toe-to-toe with the worst 1951 has to offer in the fourth and final Hollywood chapter of The Secret Diary of Bettie Page, as revealed by David Avallone and Colton Worley.

Set in 1938, “The Ring of Fire” delivers thrills aplenty as FDR’s America faces a string of national disasters: beloved aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart is missing, volcanoes are going off under US Navy bases, and villains from the Silver Death’s Heads gang are trying to kill Doc Savage! Who is the sinister villain behind this string of misfortune?

Red Sonja #10
writer: Amy Chu artist: Carlos Gomez covers: Amy Reeder (A) Ben Caldwell (B) Jonboy Meyers (C) Cosplay Photo Variant (D) Carlos Gomez (E-Sub)

What happens in Vegas definitely doesn’t stay there when the She-Devil and her friends roll into town for a showdown with the Las Aranhas gang. Sin City is no match for Sonja’s blade and her wrath. We’re definitely not in Hyrkania, anymore. Or are we…?
