Super Sons #1
(W) Peter J. Tomasi (A) Jorge Jimenez
"When I grow up" part one! The sons of Batman and Superman have graduated to their own monthly comic-but if they want to survive, they're going to have to share it! Writer Peter J. Tomasi (BATMAN & ROBIN, SUPERMAN) teams with rising-star artist Jorge Jimenez (EARTH 2) to bring you the adventures of the World's Smallest. This debut issue looks at the lives of Robin and Superboy and their destiny to follow in their fathers' footsteps, while we meet a new villain whose ascension parallels the boys' own understanding of their powers-except that he believes it's his right to rule over every being on the planet!

The newest chapter of Batwoman's life begins here! Monster Venom is the hottest new bioweapon on the market...and to break up the syndicate spreading it around the world, Batwoman's going to have to return to the place where she spent some of her darkest hours! Learn where Batwoman comes from, and where she's going, in this one-shot prologue to the first big Batwoman epic, "The Many Arms Of Death"!
(W) Warren Ellis (A) Jon Davis-Hunt
A troubled woman, barred by her employer from continuing her research, walks miserably through New York City. It takes her a moment to notice that everybody else is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of the Halo skyscraper. And that woman-Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she's buried in her own body-is the only person who can save him. What she doesn't know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history. New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, PLANETARY) returns to DC to curate Jim Lee's WildStorm world, with this debut issue resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.
