Hello everyone! This Wednesday we have a deal of the week double-header for Big Man Plans #1 and Descender #1! I’m very excited for both these titles. Big Man Plans comes from Eric Powell, the creator of The Goon. I’m a big fan and Powell doing a real mean book sounds perfect. Descender is a new sci-fi book in the vein of Kubrick/Spielberg’s A.I. by Jeff Lemire (Essex County, Sweet Tooth) and Dustin Nguyen (Lil Gotham). Also, it’s already been picked up by Sony and you know you want to be the cool person who was cool before it was cool. Lemire is also taking over for Matt Fraction on Hawkeye this week. I’m sure his archer plots are all warmed up from his stint on Green Arrow. We sold a ton of Nameless #1 a few weeks ago, but it wasn’t enough! Luckily a second printing drops this week for those that missed it. Also this week: The first issue of Star Wars Princess Leia by Mark Waid and Terry Dodson comes, the second issue for Cluster and Nameless, the first TP collection for Birthright and more!

Star Wars Princess Leia #1
All New Hawkeye #1
Hawkeye returns in an all-new series featuring superstar writer Jeff Lemire in his Marvel debut and Eisner Award-winning artist Ramon Perez, as they bring you a fresh new look into the life of everyone’s favorite Avenger. With Kate Bishop, his trusted ward and protégé back at his side (not titles she would use), Team Hawkeye is thrown into an all new adventure spanning two generations of avenging archers. Past and present lives collide as Kate and Clint face a threat that will challenge everything they know about what it means to be Hawkeye. But no one puts Hawkeye in a corner.
Black Cross #1
All small towns have secrets. All small towns have ghosts. Blackcross, in the Pacific North West of America, has more secrets than most. And it is being haunted by something impossible. BLACKCROSS, a supernatural extension of the PROJECT SUPERPOWERS mythos, is a ghost story about something reaching out from the other side of the night, through the forest and mist of this remote town, to grasp at the hearts of a handful of people who may not find out that they’re the targets of a strange killer until it’s much, much too late.
On a former U.S. moonbase, kept secret since the Cold War, a terrible key unlocks an ancient box and a last-ditch plan is drafted to save humanity from the doomsday asteroid Xibalba-but is it already too late? The nightmare intensifies in MORRISON & BURNHAM’s apocalyptic occult horror epic!
Samara and the other prisoners who managed to survive the Pagurani attack on the Towers are stranded on the battlefield, but they’ll need to find a way to trust one another before they can hope to find a transport to safety. They just better hope it happens before their Punch clocks hit zero…
