Our chosen highlights are :
ARKHAM CITY THE ORDER OF THE WORLD #1 (OF 6) CVR A SAM WOLFE CONNELLY (W) Dan Watters (A) Dani (CA) Sam Wolfe Connelly
The Joker’s attack on Arkham Asylum left the long-standing Gotham establishment in ruin, most of the patients killed or missing, and only a handful of surviving staff—a few nurses, a gravely injured security guard, and one doctor. In the chaos of the assault, it is believed that several of the asylum’s patients escaped and scurried off into the dark nooks and crannies of Gotham City. Now, these Arkhamites walk among us, and it’s up to the Asylum’s one remaining doctor, Jocasta Joy, to round up her former patients. Meet these Arkhamites: a woman with no face, a pyggy in search of perfection, a man who feels nothing and burns everything, a woman who must devour life to save herself, a man unfit for the waking world who looks instead for Wonderland, a body with more than one soul, a being unbound from time who lives in the present and the past, a boy who seeks the comfort of vermin, and the twisted man who sees them all for who they are. And witness the avenging angel who stalks them. This fall, join writer Dan Watters and artist Dani on an odyssey through the deepest depths and darkest shadows of Gotham City and find all-new reasons to fear the night.

BATMAN THE IMPOSTER #1 (OF 3) CVR A ANDREA SORRENTINO (MR) (W) Mattson Tomlin (A/CA) Andrea Sorrentino
Bruce Wayne’s mission as the Batman has only been underway for a year or so, but he can tell he’s making a difference. Unfortunately, he’s made some powerful enemies. All the traditional power brokers of Gotham resent the disruption the Batman has brought to town…and it seems one of them has a plan to neutralize him. There’s a second Batman haunting Gotham’s rooftops and alleys—and this one has no qualms about murdering criminals, live and on tape. With the entire might of the Gotham City Police Department and Gotham’s rich and powerful coming down on his head, Batman must find this imposter and somehow clear his name…but how can you prove your innocence from behind a mask? Director and screenwriter Mattson Tomlin (Project Power, Little Fish) has teamed up with Eisner-winning suspense and horror artist Andrea Sorrentino (Joker: Killer Smile, Gideon Falls) to create a wholly new version of Gotham City, informed by grim reality, where every punch leaves a broken bone and every action has consequences far, far beyond Batman’s imagination!

How to Order:
---------- FAQ Sampler: What's all this PULLBOX malarky?----------
You can use Pullbox to preorder items or you can email/message MK1 requests and we will keep pullbox updated for you. Pullbox doesn't have to be complicated - it's really just our means of letting you know what has arrived at the shop as it arrives at the shop - plus a one stop place where you can see at any time what MK1 has on order for you. Some customers like to be able to order specific covers and manage their subscriptions themselves - Pullbox lets them do that. Some customers prefer to email me instructions - that works as well - but it will be Pullbox that notifies customers as their orders arrive.
