Direct from Marvel...

Who Lives? Who Dies? Who Remains Inverted?
Find Out in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #9!






This December, the Earth-shattering finale to the biggest comic event of the year explodes into comic shops as heroes, villains and more collide in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #9 – the epic conclusion! Blockbuster writer Rick Remender along with artists Jim Cheung, Terry Dodson and Leinil Yu bring heroes and villains to the brink for the finale of Act III: New World Disorder – and not everyone will make it back!

Armies of heroes and villains wage war in the streets of Manhattan as the X-Men and their leader Apocalypse prepare to annihilate all of humanity. With the remaining Avengers twisted and corrupted by the Inversion, our only hope lies with the most despicable villains in the Marvel Universe. Led by the frail and vulnerable Steve Rogers, these villains are all that stands in the way of total obliteration.

To save everything, sacrifices will be made – and the lives of Avengers and X-Men alike will be torn asunder. An X-Man will meet their horrifying fate! An Avenger will make an appalling choice! An old foe must claim the mantle of his greatest enemy. And a new team of Uncanny Avengers will be born!

The Marvel Universe as you know it is about to be rocked to its core. No fan can afford to miss the shocking finale in AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS #9 – on sale this December!

The Dying and the Dead Series from Image Comics



New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, THE AVENGERS) teams up with explosive artist Ryan Bodenheim (RED MASS FOR MARS, SECRET) for an all-new adventure series fraught with mystery, intrigue, and exotic end-of life care in THE DYING AND THE DEAD, coming from Image Comics on January 28.

The adventures begins in THE DYING AND THE DEAD #1 when a murder at a wedding sets off a series of reactions, unraveling secrets hundreds of years old. 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 unconnected events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah.

"It's not often that you work on something that feels almost perfect from day one, but working with Ryan again and how we're both so in sync regarding the story, it really does feel like it could be something special," said co-creator Hickman.

THE DYING AND THE DEAD (Diamond Code NOV140534) is a massive, over-sized, 60-page Indiana Jones-style high adventure that arrives in stores this 1/28 and will be available for $4.50.

Lady Mechanika Returns to Comic Shops in February 2015



Lady Mechanika returns this February with a brand new Issue 4, the fourth chapter of “The Mystery of the Mechanical Corpse”. The series will continue to be written and drawn by Joe Benitez and colored by Peter Steigerwald, the original creative team.

Lady Mechanika debuted in 2010 and quickly became one of the best selling indie comic books, consistently selling out even with multiple printings. Lady Mechanika Issue 2 and Issue 3 were the #1 and #2 top selling small press comics, respectively, of 2011 according to Diamond sales charts. Publication of the series stopped after Issue 3 when publisher Aspen Comics and creator Joe Benitez decided to part ways.

The series will now be published by Benitez’s new publishing company, Benitez Productions. Benitez plans on producing several new Lady Mechanika books in the coming year:

“We want to have a new Lady Mechanika product on the shelves every month. The artwork for three issues of the next story arc is already completed and additional stories are in development. We hope that this will allow us to produce a monthly book without sacrificing quality. Quality remains our top priority.”


Lady Mechanika 4 will be available in comic book stores on February 18, 2015. In addition to Issue 4, Benitez Productions will also be producing two double-sized reprints collecting the previous four issues: Lady Mechanika 0-1 Collected Edition ships February 4th and Lady Mechanika 2-3 Collected Edition ships Febrary 11th. Lady Mechanika 5, the conclusion of the Mechanical Corpse story, is scheduled for release in March, with the second story arc, The Tablet of Destinies, debuting the following month in April.

Lady Mechanika is an action-adventure series set in Victorian England featuring a heroine with mechanical limbs of unknown origin, and her desperate search for the secrets to her past. Inspired by the popular steampunk genre, the series combines the elegance of the Victorian Era with more advanced science fiction technology.
