The First Victim and his Victim Syndicate want one thing: to make Batman pay."-- Publisher

Batman Detective Comics Vol 7: Batmen Eternal

"See Thanos as you've never seen him before: powerless and alone! He is willing to do anything to survive . . . even if that means accepting help from the unlikeliest of places!

Spider-Gwen Vol 5: Gwenom

Spider-Gwen Vol. 6: The Life of Gwen Stacy

"To defeat Matt Murdock, the Kingpin of her dimension, Gwen Stacy must let Venom win! But there's a problem: if Murdock dies, then so does Gwen! But that's the least of her worries, as Gwen has found herself on a one-way road into darkness after recent events . . ."--Back cover.

Venom by Donny Cates Vol. 1: Rex

"Beneath the streets of New York, an ancient and primordial evil has been awakened. With it something equally evil has been awakened in that most wicked of web-slingers: Venom!

Secret Wars

When everything ends, there is only Secret Wars. The multiverse has collapsed. But out of the nothing will come an incredible patchwork planet formed from the remnants of lost worlds. A place of strict borders, where law and order is maintained by an army of Thors, and sinners are thrown to the unholy terrors behind the Shield. A Battleworld in constant conflict, ..., And holding it all together is the iron will of one man, with power from beyond that makes him a god. What hope has humanity when its only salvation...is Doom?
