If you’re the savage TIGRESS, when the direct approach doesn’t work, you try something more subtle. There’s information about the sinister Serpent that the Tigress wants, she know the crime-lord of Los Angeles has it, and one way or another she’s going to get it. It’s the Tigress “Versus the Invincible Thugmaster” in an all-new adventure by Dennis Mallonee and Oski Yañez, featuring a special guest appearance by SKYLARK SMITH!
Also in this issue, for the first time in color, SPARKPLUG stars in the classic adventure, “Blood Relations,” by Lou Mougin, Henry Martinez, and Rob Lansley
Legend of Korra Book 2 Episode 01 Six months after the end of Book One: Air, Korra has mastered airbending, Mako works as a policeman and is up for a promotion as detective, Bolin fares poorly in pro-bending with the new “Fire Ferrets”, and Asami tries to keep Future Industries afloat by venturing to the south to plan business with Varrick. With Tenzin, the friends visit Korra’s and Tenzin’s family in the Southern Water Tribe. After Korra’s uncle and tribal chief Unalaq easily repels an angry spirit’s attack, Korra chooses him instead of Tenzin as her spiritual teacher.
Episode 02 Korra, Mako, Bolin, Korra’s father Tonraq, her new teacher Unalaq and his children Desna and Eska travel to the South Pole, where Korra opens a portal to the spirit world to release the Southern Lights. Learning that her father was banished from the Northern Water Tribe for causing a spirit rampage, and was, with Tenzin, responsible for her seclusion in her youth, she orders him to leave her. Returning from the pole, Korra’s party witnesses an invasion of the South by Northern Water Tribe troops. Meanwhile, Tenzin and his family arrive at the Southern Air Temple, where Jinora is drawn to the statues of Aang and an unidentified ancient Avatar.

Which smart kid would outsmart the other?
THE KILLING JOKE
Batman: The Killing Joke is a one-shot superhero graphic novel written by Alan Moore and drawn by Brian Bolland. Published by DC Comics in 1988, it has remained in print since then, and has also been reprinted as part of the trade paperback DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore.
The plot revolves around the Joker’s attempt to drive Gotham City Police CommissionerJames Gordon insane, and is intercut with the villain’s flashbacks to his life before his disfigurement and criminal life.
The story’s effects on the mainstream Batman continuity included the shooting and paralysisof Barbara Gordon (a.k.a. Batgirl) by the Joker, an event that laid the groundwork for her to develop the identity of Oracle, an expert computer hacker and a vital source of information for Batman and other superheroes
