10. King The Phantom #1 $3.99 Dynamite Entertainment
'What IS The Phantom?' Welcome to the KING, full of TWO-FISTED SCRAPPING and RUGGED COURAGE and UNSTOPPABLE PURPOSE and DARING INFILTRATION and BREAKNECK COMBAT and INDESTRUCTIBLE LEGACY and GHOSTS?WHO?WALK!
The supernaturally awesome conclusion to the blockbuster crossover is here! Ghostly forces converge on the Ghostbusters HQ, and the Turtles' opportunity to get back home is fast dwindling! The two teams' last-ditch efforts may come too late!
With nowhere left to run, Colby Cinders must tap into the life she once led if she hopes to survive. Encouraged by her boyfriend Leo's faith in her, Colby finally faces the Dark Shaman. But even as she embraces who she was, the Shaman's power grows. Ultimately, Colby is left with a terrible choice - will she save the life of Leo Walker, or save the spirits of the Timucuan people?
The Odinson is back. And he clearly doesn't like that someone else is holding his hammer. You know what that means, right? THOR VS. THOR!!!
'TODAY, TOMORROW, THE GRAVE' A murder at a wedding reveals a fifty year-old secret. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly disparate events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah. Brought to you by award-winning writer JONATHAN HICKMAN and fan-favorite artist RYAN BODENHEIM, THE DYING AND THE DEAD is high adventure meets end-of-life care. It's Indiana Jones for Old People. There are no fedoras, only bedpans.
As the Predator sets out on his greatest hunt, Galgo must decide if atoning for his past sins is worth the ultimate sacrifice!
Based on the immensely popular card game, Munchkin comes to comics! Munchkin takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, it has since then taken on nonfantasy and non-gaming elements. Characters in Munchkin change constantly but never permanently. What do Munchkins do? They play for the win. They are rules lawyers. They backstab. They gloat. Munchkins may be brave in the face of awful odds, but they are even braver when beating up crippled goblins for their lunch money. If a Munchkin seems to show mercy, it's because he was bored or distracted. After all, even stomping an ant helps you level up.
'He's nothing but a man!' Welcome to the KING, full of UNCANNY PLANETS and ENORMOUS EXPLOSIONS and FURIOUS HOLOGRAMS and IMPOSSIBLE BRAVERY and GALACTIC HEISTS and SAVAGE GUERILLAS and MYSTERIOUS FLOBOTANIM and MASSIVE HANGOVERS and GRINNING IMPOSSIBILITY!
'G-23,' part 2 of 2: A government plot leads Mulder to ponder his early days as a cadet at Quantico, including his relationship with Diana Fowley and the fateful day that he found the iconic 'I Want to Believe' poster. But the intrigue goes even further back in time, to when Bill Mulder was partnered with the Cigarette Smoking Man.
'Endgame' part 4. The Joker is back! This time, no more funny stuff. And in the backup story, five Arkham Asylum escapees share their encounters with The Joker!
