Kaidu and Rat have only just recovered from the assassination attempt on the General of All Blades when more chaos breaks loose in the Nameless City: deep conflicts within the Dao nation are making it impossible to find a political solution for the disputed territory of the City itself.

To complicate things further, Kaidu is fairly certain he’s stumbled on a formula for the lost weapon of the mysterious founders of the City. . . . But sharing it with the Dao military would be a complete betrayal of his friendship with Rat. Can Kai find the right solution before the Dao find themselves at war?

Where we last left off: Kaidu and Rat having thwarted an assassination attempt on the General of All Blades. Afterwards? Well…

Faith Erin Hicks is back with The Stone Heart, the sequel of The Nameless City. (For those who have not read The Nameless City, here’s everything you need to know about it.) And oh boy, friends, The Stone Heart will have you with your mouths open (so try not to catch flies in it when you read this great graphic novel).

DC BOMBSHELLS • VOL. 3: UPRISING

EUROPE, 1941. War is raging across the continent. The forces of darkness are on the march—and the magic powers of heroes like Zatanna, Mera and Constantine have been stripped away. And in the underground cabarets of Berlin, the Joker’s Daughter rules with an iron fist.

On the home front, the Batgirls—an army of freedom fighters modeled after their favorite Bombshell—battle against Gotham City’s most infamous criminals with the help of Maggie Sawyer and Lois Lane. And deep inside enemy territory, a rebel alliance is forming. Batwoman, Catwoman, Zatanna, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Raven, Constantine, the Huntress and Renee Montoya are ready to strike hard and fast against the Nazi menace.

But when one Bombshell turns traitor, all bets are off…

WONDER WOMAN • VOL. 1: THE LIES

Heroic. Iconic. Unstoppable. Armed with her Lasso of Truth and imbued with the power of the gods themselves, Princess Diana of Themyscira-known to the world as Wonder Woman-is one of the greatest superheroes in history.

But who is she…really? Not even Wonder Woman herself knows for sure. Diana’s links to both the Amazons and the Gods of Olympus have been severed. Her memories are a tangle of contradictions that even her lie-detecting lasso cannot untangle.

To solve the riddle of her origin, she must embark on her greatest quest of all: finding a way back to her vanished home. To get there, she must team up with her greatest enemy, the feral beast-woman, Cheetah. Will this unlikely alliance shine the light of truth on Diana’s darkest secrets, or bury them-and her-forever?

Find out in WONDER WOMAN VOL. 1: THE LIES-exploding from the blockbuster DC Rebirth event! Legendary Wonder Woman writer Greg Rucka (BATWOMAN: ELEGY) makes his triumphant return to the character for the first time in years and joins renowned fantasy artist Liam Sharp (2000 AD) for one of the most momentous stories in Diana’s history!

Why I’m excitedI FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOREVER FOR THIS WONDER WOMAN COMIC TO BE OUT! After my disappointment with the series written by Brian Azzarello, I wanted a Wonder Woman series that will make me fall in love with it.

There’s so many comics, but these are the ones that are an absolute must because they’re the top comics or I have them on my shelf.

GREEN ARROW • VOL. 1 THE DEATH & LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN

By day he’s Oliver Queen, playboy socialite, CEO of Queen Industries and philanthropic do-gooder. But at night he patrols the streets of Seattle, where he champions the oppressed as a true social justice warrior. He is Green Arrow.

But how can you fight the man when you are the man? That’s the question left with Oliver after an electric, love-at-first-sight encounter with Black Canary, the superhero rock star who challenges everything he thought he knew about protecting the innocent. As if that weren’t enough, a sinister organization with ties to his nearest and dearest prepares to tear down Oliver’s financial empire, destroy his family’s legacy and end his life.

Without fortune or friends, can Green Arrow defeat this unholy alliance of traitors? Or has death finally caught up with Oliver Queen?

Discover the shocking answers in GREEN ARROW VOL. 1: THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN, the surprise hit series from writer BENJAMIN PERCY (TEEN TITANS), gorgeously illustrated by OTTO SCHMIDT (Korvac Saga) and JUAN FERREYRA (NEW SUICIDE SQUAD) and exploding from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event!

Why I’m excitedAlthough I am not the biggest fan of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen, I can’t help but want to read this comic because of Black Canary. Any comics with Black Canary, I immediately need it in my life. (I love that her past as a superhero rock star is carried into this comic.) Also, I heard excellent things about the writing, and that it’s best of the Rebirth stories.
