The First X-Men arrive in August
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artist: Brian Stelfreeze
From the creative minds of Image partners Robert Kirkman & Marc Silvestri! Once the hard core is shot into the back of your neck, an assassin’s brain waves can be transmitted into your body–circumventing your brain functions–taking complete control of your body. When assassins use this technology–your killer can be anyone; your barber, your neighbor or your wife. They are the best assassins in the world–but what happens when one of their own turns against them? Who can you trust when your enemy can change his appearance as easy as someone changes a shirt?
RESIDENT ALIEN #1 A stranded alien seeks refuge in the small town of Patience, USA, where he hides undercover as a semiretired doctor, masking his appearance using his unique mental abilities. Now known as Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle, all the alien wants is to be left alone until he’s rescued. However, when the town’s real doctor dies, “Dr. Harry” is pulled into medical service—and also finds himself smack dab in the middle of a murder mystery! He’d rather be fishing. Acclaimed creators Peter Hogan (2000 AD,Tom Strong) and Steve Parkhouse (The Milkman Murders, Doctor Who) deliver a truly unique sci-fi adventure tale!
Lobster Johnson and the Burning Hand #5
Writer: Mike Mignola, John Arcudi
Artist: Tonci Zonjic
Lobster Johnson blasts his way through an army of mad sewer cannibals in order to get to the greedy mob boss Wald!

But Cade Skywalker has his own plans for this war–all this time spent running from his legacy has finally shown him that he can’t run . . . and he must stand alone against Darth Krayt! Collects the six-issue miniseries.
