BATMAN/THE SPIRIT

Written by Jeph Loeb & Darwyn Cooke
Art by Cooke & J. Bone
Cover by Cooke
Will Eisner's legendary hero The Spirit returns for a monumental meeting with the Dark Knight in this special one-shot event written by comics luminaries Jeph Loeb (SUPERMAN/ BATMAN) & Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) with art by Cooke & J. Bone!

When the American Criminologist Association holds its annual convention, its members are unaware that America's criminals are holding a gathering of their own. And when Batman's rogue gallery joins forces with the Spirit's colorful criminals, things can only get worse!

With dozens of villains on the loose and the nation's security at stake, two very different crimefighters must come together to save the day. Guest-starring just about everyone from the supporting casts of both comic-book icons - including Robin, Catwoman, the Joker, Ebony, P'Gell, Commissioner Dolan and more - this is an historic comics event you won't want to miss!

RED MENACE #1

Written by Danny Bilson, Paul DiMeo & Adam Brody
Art by Jerry Ordway & Al Vey
Cover by Jerry Ordway
Variant cover by Darwyn Cooke

Writers Danny Bilson & Paul DeMeo (THE FLASH: FASTEST MAN ALIVE) and comics-newcomer Adam Brody (star of The O.C.) - with art by fan-favorite Jerry Ordway (TOP 10: BEYOND THE FARTHEST PRECINCT, JSA) & inker Al Vey - present what's sure to be the most talked-about miniseries of the fall. RED MENACE is a story of heroes and the corrupt leaders they must take a stand against!

Los Angeles, 1953: Home to bent cops, smooth criminals, and curvaceous starlets; where the glamour and wealth of Hollywood and Beverly Hills collide with the crime and grit of Chinatown. Amidst this startling contrast, American ideals are under siege by Joseph McCarthy and the H.U.A.C. trials, rooting out communist threats where ever they may lie - even in the ranks of the super heroic! Can there be any doubt about the loyalties of L.A.'s greatest and most patriotic hero, the Eagle? America is about to find out the hard way!

Retailers: This issue will feature 2 covers that may be ordered separately. The Standard Edition cover is by Jerry Ordway & Al Vey; one copy of Variant Edition A, with a cover by Darwyn Cooke, may be ordered for every 10 copies of the Standard Edition ordered. Please see the Previews Order Form for further details.

CROSSING MIDNIGHT #1

Written by Mike Carey
Art by Jim Fern & Rob Hunter
Cover by J.H. Williams III

Mike Carey - writer of the Eisner-nominated Lucifer and Ultimate Fantastic Four - returns to the magical world of twisted horror in a new Vertigo monthly series drawn by the breakout art team of Jim Fern (Fables) & Rob Hunter (The First). In modern-day Japan, Kai and his twin sister Toshi are born on opposite sides of midnight. But that casual line in time will have disastrous effects on their lives: Their friends will go missing; commonplace knives will hide deadly secrets; and Kai and Toshi will have to save themselves and their entire family from their own horrible destinies.

Set in contemporary Nagasaki, Crossing Midnight taps into Japanese and Korean horror to mix the mythology of The Sandman with the fantasy of films like Hayao's Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. Together, Mike Carey and Jim Fern come up with flights of fantasy tethered to a reality where children are stolen, innocence corrupted, and where two teenagers will have to stare down bizarre beings capable of very visceral terrors.
