Artist: Abhishek Malsubi
Cover: J. Scott Campbell

John Carter, the Confederate soldier transported to distant Mars, must save his adopted world from an adversary who is every bit his equal on the Red Planet: Captain Joshua Clark, formerly of the Army of the Potomac and now the strategist for a species of star-hopping conquerors. While Carter and his staunch ally, the Thark chieftain Tars Tarkas, lead a legion of united Green Men and Red Men against the alien assailants, Dejah Thoris — the princess of Barsoom — is held captive by the bloodthirsty Clark in the fallen city of Helium. The "Invaders of Mars" storyline is cosmic-scale action and adventure, courtesy of Ron Marz, the groundbreaking writer of Green Lantern!

Purgatori TP
Writer: Aaron Gillespie
Artist: Javier Garcia-Miranda
Cover: Nei Ruffino

Behold... Purgatori, the vampire goddess! Born a slave in ancient Alexandria, she refused the life of servitude, rising up against her masters and claiming an unnatural power as her own. In her long life, she has dined on kings and queens, and toppled countless empires across the globe... but now, she finds herself again on her knees, a slave to her unquenchable thirst! Lucifer, the lord of Hell, has stripped Purgatori of most of her power and exiled her to Earth, where her insatiable need for blood threatens to overwhelm her sanity. Her only hope for regaining her full stature is by acquiring the Chalice of Regeneration, a cup from antiquity lost to the desert sands. But Purgatori has a rival for the prize, an old enemy with an intense grudge. And even if the vampire goddess can once again attain her former glory, can she withstand the machinations of Lucifer, the weaponsmith Cremator, and Purgatori's own blood clone?

He's gone toe-to-toe with organized crime bosses, stood up to the cops, squared off against kidnappers, and foiled assassination attempts. But who was John Shaft before he became the hardboiled investigator with a reputation as big as New York City itself? Recently arriving home from his tour of duty in Vietnam, his first case — tracking down a missing person for his girlfriend — quickly turns into a matter of life and death, making him a target of gangsters and the police!
