Welcome to our #NewComicsSpotlight for this week, where we spotlight 6 issues that are hitting stands. (as we get closer to Halloween I wanna see some more horror titles!!)
Official Description: It’s been 35 years since Ozymandias dropped a giant interdimensional squid on New York City, killing thousands and destroying the public’s trust in heroes once and for all. And since that time, one figure in a fedora, mask, and trench coat has become a divisive cultural icon. So what does it mean when Rorschach reappears as an assassin trying to kill a candidate running against President Robert Redford? Who is the man behind the mask, and why is he acting this way? It’s up to one detective to uncover the true identity of this would-be killer—and it will take him into a web of conspiracies involving alien invasions, disgraced do-gooders, mystic visions, and yes, comic books.
Writer: Tom King | Artist: Jorge Fornes
DC THE DOOMED AND THE DAMNED #1
Official Description: It was a dark and stormy night when the creatures of the DC Universe began to emerge from their lairs into the cool evening air. Tales of the macabre, the murderous, and the morbid abound in this spine-chilling special about monsters and mayhem! What happens when Batman encounters a true urban legend after speaking its name three times in a mirror, or when Madame Xanadu enlists the help of Man-Bat to take down a shadowy specter? And who can stop an intergalactic demon from turning people into frog beasts? Only the unlikely team-up of Green Lantern and Etrigan! All this and seven more fang-tastic tales to trick your treats and bob your apples.
Writers: Travis G. Moore, Saladin Ahmed, Marv Wolfman, John Arcudi, Kenny Porter, Amanda Deibert, Garth Ennis, Amedeo Turturro, Brandon Thomas, Alyssa Wong | Artists: Daniel Sampere, Max Fiumara, Baldemar Rivas, PJ Holden, , Tom Mandrake, Leonardo Manco, Mike Perkins, Travis G. Moore, Riley Rossmo
STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #6
Official Description: THE PUNISHMENT! DARTH VADER failed to turn his son, Luke Skywalker, to the dark side of the Force. No…Luke was too weak to join his father in overthrowing EMPEROR PALPATINE. Vader sought revenge against those who hid Luke from him for all of these years…and in doing so nearly betrayed his master. It did not go unnoticed by Palpatine… time for Vader’s next lesson.

BILL AND TED ARE DOOMED #2
Official Description: Bill and Ted are making ridiculous plans for a world tour that will somehow solve all their problems. They also hope to write the one song while on tour, energized and influenced by the people of the excellent planet Earth. Their confidence returning, they help the overburdened princesses with arranging the bookings. Things take a turn though when Wyld Stallyns is accidentally booked for a deadly-serious Scandinavian death metal festival (because of Death being in their band).
Writer: Evan Dorkin | Artist: Roger Langridge
THE TRUE LIVES OF THE FABULOUS KILLJOYS: NATIONAL ANTHEM #1
Official Description: The Fabulous Killjoys, once a group of teenage exterminators determined to save reality, have lost their way–and their memories. After a period of mental confinement, former Killjoys leader Mike Milligram gets de-programmed and hits the road to bring the gang back together for a final showdown against an evil pharmaceutical corporation, their monstrous hitman, and savage gang rivals.
Writers: Gerard Way, Shaun Simon | Artist: Leonardo Romero
