DINGO #1
Written by Michael Alan Nelson
Drawn by Francesco Biagini
COVER A: Tim Bradstreet
COVER B: Francesco Biagini
A bold new mini from the writer of the best-selling FALL OF CTHULHU and the critically acclaimed series HEXED! A supernatural crime story in the vein of 100 BULLETS — a man named Dingo who’s after only one thing: a box. And he’ll stop at nothing to obtain it, no matter how many bad men get in his way. But the real question is, what’s in the box? And why is Dingo willing to kill to get it back? A rough-and-tumble thriller with a hint of the unearthly and a pinch of something nasty…

Superman: Secret Origin #3
Written by Geoff Johns; Art by Gary Frank and Jon Sibal; Covers by Gary Frank

So long, Smallville; hello, Metropolis! Join Geoff Johns and Gary Frank as they explore a very different Metropolis from the one we currently know – one that has yet to experience life with Superman as its protector. Witness the transformative power one person can have on a city as young Clark Kent joins The Daily Planet, and Superman takes to the skies and gives everyone a reason to look up. Over the years, Superman has come to mean everything to Metropolis, but be here to learn why Metropolis means everything to Superman!

Matthew
INCREDIBLE HERCULES #138
Written by GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE
Penciled by RODNEY BUCHEMI

A battle of god-like proportions begins…right now! For months, the signs have been all over the Marvel Universe… The tension has been rising… All pointing to a single question: “What is CONTINUUM?” The answer turns out to be so deadly, so horrifying, that it will alter the course of the MU forever — unless Hercules and the New and Mighty Avengers can stop it in time… but standing in their way is the fighting-mad ARES, God of War! “And, in our backup tale, there’s no love for Venus as Aphrodite’s rain of pain continues to pour on the Agents of Atlas!”

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Sin City: The Hard Goodbye
The Hard Goodbye takes place in Sin City – a land as tough as leather and as dry as timber. Love is the fuel, and the now-infamous character Marv has the match, not to mention a “condition.” He’s gunning after Goldie’s killer and it’s time to watch this town burn.
