Now, what's on your list?

It's 2020 and the machines of the Marvel Universe are turning against their creators, now it's become the Robotic Revolution.

Will they all stay true to their causes?

Following on from the devastating event from Incoming, the citizens of the Marvel Universe are tired of teenaged superheroes, and now they're all being legally put out of commission in OUTLAWED #1, from Eve Ewing and Kim Jacinto. But when has youth ever listened to outrage rantings of unreasonable adults? Find out how the young heroes of Marvel Comics will adjust to this shocking new status quo.

Not a trick, not an imaginary story, not a Skrull cop-out, Jessica Drew is back in a new self-titled seires starting with SPIDER-WOMAN #1, from Karla Pacheco and Pere Perez. In this explosive first issue, Jessica has taken on a new job to take her mind off her unusually angry and irritable mood. But when this simple security job goes deadly awry, Spider-Woman will be on the case to catch the culprits and figure out why she hasn't been feeling herself.

In the year 1940, Batman and Robin joined forces for the first time, and the beginnings of the Batfamily were cemented. Now, DC celebrates the 80 years that have passed since that momentous event with ROBIN 80TH ANNIV 100 PAGE SUPER SPECT #1, featuring a line up of super star creators that will make you say "Holy super star creators, Batman", including Marv Wolfman, Nicola Scott, Chuck Dixon, Frank Miller, Amy Wolfram, Mikel Janin, James Tynion IV, Dustin Nguyen and more.

But as she, the anthropologist, tries to uncover these secrets, she also has to compete with interference from Russians, Vatican officials, the sensationalizing of the international media and her own insecurities. Will this ship make us all believers in the end, or will the truth be buried like it has been in the past?

For fans of the addicting Cuphead video game and those in love with the retro, 1930s art style of the game comes the ART OF CUPHEAD HC, from Studio Mdhr.

One of the smartest men on Earth, Bruce Banner, has just become one of the most feared, as his malicious machinations start to come to a head in IMMORTAL HULK TP VOL 06, from Al Ewing and Joe Bennett.

In the mountains lies a village that is annually attacked by a monster, but this year, two villagers have decided to take a stand in JIA & THE NIAN MONSTER TP, from Mike Richardson and Megan Huang.

Who will be left standing after the final battle has been fought?

Teenagers no longer, the original youthful heroes of the DC Universe continue their heroic team ups as the Titans, and now you can check out some new adventures, as well as some of their recent ones, in TITANS GIANT #1. Featuring work from creators such as Phil Hester, Marc Guggenheim, Scott Koblish, Tom Grummett and Steve Pugh, have fun with stories involving the unusual disappearance of Raven's college professor, which is only the beginning of a terrible mystery, and then they investigate the leader of a cult and what happens to his followers when they join his 'church'.

Don't miss out on a brand new series from Mike and Laura Allred which kicks off in X-RAY ROBOT #1 (OF 4). In this bizarrely awesome debut issue, Max is a family man looking for more excitement in his life. Well, how much more exciting can life get when your latest experiment at work brings back in time a robot from the future that claims to be Max himself, at age 277. But this is no ordinary Max-bot from the future, this one needs his past's self to go with him on a journey to defeat the forces who wish to return the universe to its Pre-Big Bang state. If you dug Allred's work on Silver Surfer and Madman, you have to check this one out.

Back from hiatus and ready for a brand new story arc, Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and Chris Burnham are back for a brand new arc of their action-packed, ultra-violent series with DIE DIE DIE #9. Connie Lipshitz, having taken over the cabal, vows to bring peace to the world, and will kill more people than necessary to achieve it, while Barnaby is on the run and finding himself in some dark places. But hey, at least you can only have your nose cut off once, right?

The war between Heaven and Hell is getting locked and loaded in ARCHANGEL 8 #1 (OF 5), from Michael Moreci, CP Smith and Snakebite Cortez. In religious lore, there are seven archangels that fight according to God's laws, but unbeknownst to all is an eight archangel, and they are not bound by God's limitations. What lengths will Archangel 8 go to to win the Holy War, and how close are they to falling into the depths of they evil they swore to fight?

Virginia Hall was charged with carrying plans of the Normandy Invasion out of the hands of the enemy and into the hands of the Allies during World War II, which would turn the tide of the war. While this went off without a hitch, all that may be undone when Maya, a time-travelling assassin, is sent back to kill Virginia in ARTEMIS & ASSASSIN #1, from Stephanie Phillips, Meghan Hetrick and Francesca Fantini. Who will win this epic conflict, the assassin from the future, or the experienced spy fighting on her home turf?

There were very few things twelve year-olds wanted to do more in the 80s than hit the video game arcades, and Don is no exception, but his father won't let him join his friends and have fun. But in HEXAGON #1 (OF 5), from Michael Moreci and Jheremy Raapack, Don will learn exactly what his father was protecting him from. Dared by his friends to sneak out and go to the arcade with them, Don manages to beat the unbeatable game, Crucible, which promptly triggers an alien invasion of the Earth, and dragging Don into the intergalactic battle his father was shielding him from.

When in the United States of America, it's irresistible to take a drive down the historic Route 66, and along the way, you might spend the night at a little place called the Pierrot Hotel, a place that isn't on any map. In the pages of HOTELL #1 (OF 4), from John Lees and Dalibor Talajic, see the desperate and the secretive try to hide out in this little desolate building in the middle of nowhere, where the patrons check in and are doomed to never check out.

One the run from the dangerous Juarez Cartel, a young Mexican couple cross the border into Texas, hopefully to begins their new lives, free of criminals in RED BORDER #1 (OF 4), from Jason Starr, Will Conrad and Ivan Nunes. However some of the worst thugs from the cartel have followed them across, but the couple have found refuge with a ranch owner and their family. Alas, there is no peace to be found, as it seems the ranch family have their own dark secrets that might make being hunted by the cartel seem more preferable.

Two creators who know a thing or two about superheroes, J Michael Straczynski and Mike Deodato Jr., join AWA Inc. to launch their own superhero story, which begins with RESISTANCE #1 (OF 6). After the Earth suffers devastation on a global scale, hundreds of millions die in the incident. But not long after the fallout, a few thousand survivors develop superpowers, but which of these new super-powered beings will work for the restructuring of mankind, and which will dedicate themselves to tearing down what remains?

From TMNT co-creator, Kevin Eastman, and Simon Bisley comes a collection of three, extreme 90s-esque comic book stories in the form of KEVIN EASTMAN TOTALLY TWISTED TALES TP VOL 01. Starring characters that any combination of guys, girls, monsters, mutants, superheroes, slackers, lowlives and an incredibly fast rat, check out your weirdness censor and test your limits with this collection of pure comic insanity.

If you're after a sci-fi story that's as erotic as it is exotic, then check out MONEY SHOT TP, from Sarah Beattie, Tim Seeley and Rebekah Isaacs. Space travel is sought after by many on the Earth, to escape their dull lives, but it is ludicrously expensive. But knowing what her species is like, human scientist Christine Ocampo has figured out the perfect way to afford space travel for her and her friends: by going out among the stars and sending back their sexual exploits to the people of Earth using the internet, then using the profits gained by that to keep on travelling. It's a win/win situation, and Chris and her merry band of scientists are going to enjoy each and every last pleasure it provides.

For fans of urban fantasy stories, you can't go wrong with a copy of NOMEN OMEN TP VOL 01 TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART, from Marco B. Bucci and Jacopo Camgni. Becky Kumar is a geeky twenty-year old from NYC, and also a daughter of three mothers, who's about to cross the border between our world and an ancient realm unlike any other, hiding the truth to unfathomable secrets.

From the acclaimed creator of the beloved Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack, Nicholas Gurewitch, comes NOTES CASE OF MELANCHOLIA OR A LITTLE DEATH HC. While we all know Death for his occupation of grim reaping, learn more about him as he visits a psychoanalyst to try and figur out why his troublesome child has no interest in taking up their dad's grisly job. Enjoy Gurewitch's labor of love and copious helpings of black comedy in this twisted family affair.

If you've stuck with Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici's Oblivion Song so far and are dying for some answers, then at last you're about to get some in OBLIVION SONG BY KIRKMAN & DE FELICI TP VOL 04, as the Faceless Men are revealed.

From the big screen to the comic book page, Detective Pikachu returns in a comic book adaptation of the hit movie with POKEMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU MOVIE GN, from Brian Buccellato and Nelson Daniel. Follow the journey of Tim Goodman in Ryme City, as he searches high and low for any trace of his missing father. New twists and turns lurk under every corner, but nothing surprises Tim more than his new detective partner, a walking, talking, coffee-addicted Pikachu. Experience the Pokemon world in a way unlike any before it, packed full of mysteries, and remember, you've got to solve them all.

Pretty Deadly returns for a third volume with series creators, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios, with the mysterious PRETTY DEADLY TP VOL 03 THE RAT. Set during the sun-soaked strips of Hollywood in the 1930s, the whole of California is about to be rocked by the murder of the granddaughter of Sara Fields. Desperate to catch the cold-blooded killer, the victim's uncle calls upon the Reaper of Vengeance to aid his manhunt, but at what cost?

Check back in with the divine that live amongst us in SAINT YOUNG MEN HC GN VOL 02, from Hikaru Nakamura. Living in a flat in western Tokyo, Jesus and Buddha are having a holiday from their divine duties and settle amongst the people of Japan. Adjusting to this unfamiliar lifestyle is still taking some time, but with patience, care and a little godly intervention, the pair will mage to fit right in.

Good things come in threes, and that include Trees, from Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, with the release of TREES TP VOL 03. When a body is found by the leg of a mysterious tree by Russian police sergeant Klara Voranova, she is still being haunted by the memory of the case over a decade later, little realising how this shocking murder will change everything she knows, and how her own fate is entangled with that of the Tree's shadow.

Batman: The Animated Series made many bold changes to the characters we know from the Batman mythology, but none proved more universally praised than Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's take on Mr. Freeze. Now you can own a huge, screen accurate figure of the villain with a heart of ice with the BATMAN ANIMATED MR FREEZE 1/6 SCALE COLLECTIBLE. Featuring 28 points of articulation and swappable hands, heads and weapons, this is the ultimate Mr. Freeze action figure.

The latest Master of the Universe figure replica from Super 7 is Skeletor, but now he comes in a new packaging with MOTU 5.5IN VINTAGE WAVE 4 SKELETOR AF JAPANESE BOX. Presented in a box that was originally going to be used for the Japanese release of the figure in the 80s, add this little piece of lost history to your collection today.

If there is something extra you are after make sure to get your requests to us before 5pm Monday to give us the best chance to secure you what you are after.

So until we see you next, stay healthy, live life and read comics!
