As the war between different coloured Lantern Corps rages on, the prophecy of the Blackest Night descends.

Lieutenant James Gordon takes up a new post in the crime-ridden and corrupt city of Gotham, while billionaire Bruce Wayne returns to the scene of his parents’ deaths, intent on avenging their memory.

Superman: Earth One
J. Michael Straczynski joins forces with rising star artist Shane Davis to create this original graphic novel that gives new insight into Clark Kent’s transformation into Superman and his first year as the Man of Steel.

Wonder Woman has found her place after the Infinite Crisis – posing as Agent Diana Prince – but her world is soon thrown into turmoil as Circe resurfaces with a cunning and malevolent new plan, and the Amazons, led by her mother, Hippolyta, attack America! Can the daughter of Themyscira stop the disaster about to unfold?
Batman: Arkham Asylum Anniversary Edition
In Gotham City’s home for the criminally insane, Batman confronts his arch-nemeses, including the Joker, Two-Face and more. Before the battle is over, Batman’s mental straight-jacket will have been torn apart, exposing his every weakness and bringing him far closer to his foes than he could ever possibly have wanted!
