Rodrigo: Warhammer: Condemned By Fire #1 (Boom! Studios)
The Witch Hunters come to the fore in this five issue mini-series from the same team that brought you WARHAMMER: FORGE OF WAR. Tireless foes of Chaos in the Warhammer universe, Witch Hunters roam the Empire seeking to stop the spread of dark magic and witchery of all kinds. When Witch Hunter Magnus Gault hears that the nearby village of Loughville has fallen prey to the canker of Chaos, he is driven to investigate. Once there, he finds the buildings rancid and rotted and the villagers wretched and mutated – eager to prey upon any lost soul who should come their way. Can one man stand against this monstrous regiment?

The entire Multiverse is threatened as the mysterious Libra assembles an army of the DCU’s most terrifying super villains. But what is the ultimate plan, and who will live to find out?

The New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract
Written by Marv Wolfman
Art by George PÃ©rez, Dick Giordano, Mike DeCarlo, and Romeo Tanghal
Cover by PÃ©rez
They were Earthâ€™s teenage defenders â€” unbeatable and unstoppable. Riding high, they took an eighth member â€” a young girl â€” into their ranks.
She was their downfall.
From the retirement of Robin and Kid Flash, to the birth of Nightwing and the introduction of Jericho, to the ultimate betrayal of a Titan â€” â€œThe Judas Contractâ€ kept readers positively riveted during its initial run and still has fans talking today.
The winner in the Indiana Jones DVD Collection Contest is announced.
