 Our chosen highlights are : 

BATGIRLS #1 CVR A JORGE CORONA
(W) Becky Cloonan, Michael W. Conrad (A/CA) Jorge Corona
Um, hello—you didn’t actually think we’d keep you waiting this entire year without giving you the Batgirls series we’ve all been wanting for forever, right? No way, we love you too much—just like Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, who are only able to navigate the dark, gritty, and oftentimes scary city of Gotham by leaning on the bright light that is their best-friendship. Mentored by Oracle, the Batgirls move to the other side of town where Barbara Gordon can keep a better eye on them while the hacker Seer is still invading their lives. Steph may be too rash sometimes, and Cass doesn’t speak much—but what they lack in similarities they make up for with their mutual respect and love for each other…and what makes them stronger together as Batgirls! And they may be good at kicking ass, but they are just trying their best to be normal teenagers—who’ll borrow the keys to a muscle car that belonged to a bad guy and perhaps give it a joyride around town without a driver’s license, then race to get back home to Oracle by curfew…! Splashing the pages with bright colors against a dark backdrop of Gotham, Batgirls is the pizza slumber party of the year you don’t want to miss!  MK1 Price $9.00 In Store 13th December 2021 

LADY MECHANIKA MONSTER OF MINISTRY #1 (OF 4) CVR A BENITEZ &
IMAGE COMICS 
(W) Joe Benitez (A/CA) Joe Benitez, Beth Sotelo
In a Victorian asylum full of grotesque inmates, sadistic guards, and a fanatical doctor, a young lady wakes to find her arms and legs have been replaced with mechanical limbs. But who among this gruesome menagerie is the true monster of the Ministry of Hell? The origins of the notorious adventuress known as Lady Mechanika!
 The dark Victorian atmosphere of MIRKA ANDOLFO's MERCY meets the character-driven steampunk storytelling of MARJORIE LIU and SANA TAKEDA's MONSTRESS.  MK1 Price $9.00 In Store 9th December 2021 

LUKE CAGE: CITY OF FIRE #1 by: Gang Hyuk Lim Illustrated by: Farid Karami Cover Design or Artwork by: Taurin Clarke

AN ALL-TOO-RELEVANT STORY ROCKS THE MARVEL U! When a Black man is murdered by a police officer in New York City, Luke Cage is called to action. But what does a good man do when protecting the streets puts him at odds with his own people? A cadre of crooked cops named the Regulators are out to terrorize ordinary citizens, and with Daredevil determined to bring them down no matter the cost and Mayor Fisk equally determined to use them to tighten his grip on the city, it’s up to Cage to keep the city from completely going up in flames. Joined by an exciting lineup of artists (Farid Karami on #1, Ray-Anthony Height on #2 and Sean Damien Hill on #3), celebrated creator Ho Che Anderson (King: A Comics Biography of Martin Luther King, Jr.; Scream Queen) makes his Marvel debut with an ambitious, hard-hitting story unlike any you’ve seen in the 616. Change is coming — and it starts here.  MK1 Price $10.00 In Store 30th December 2021

DAISY #1 (OF 5) 
DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Colin Lorimer (A/CA) Colin Lorimer
A desperate mother's five-year search for her missing son leads her to the small town of Brimount and to the mysterious Phillips family. Daisy Phillips, like many teenagers, has a hard time fitting in, but not for the usual reasons. Daisy stands eight-and-a-half feet tall and is still growing, but her troubles with ill health, daily ridicule, and custom-made clothing are only the tip of the iceberg. Daisy may well be descended from a race of cannibalistic giants spawned from the outcasts of Heaven!
Colin Lorimer is one of graphic fiction's emerging unique creative voices, and Daisy is a tale unlike any other, a singular vision both horrific and beautiful.
"Lorimer's art will pull you into his world."-Big Shiny Robot  MK1 Price $9.00 In Store 9th December 2021

BATMAN ONE DARK KNIGHT #1 (OF 3) CVR A JOCK (MR)
(W/A/CA) Jock
From high above the sweltering summer streets of Gotham, Batman planned to escort the GCPD as the dangerous metahuman super-villain known as E.M.P. was transferred from a holding cell to his permanent home at Blackgate Prison. E.M.P.’s electrical powers posed a threat, but the situation was in hand—until it wasn’t. Now every light in Gotham is out, the police are in disarray, and a broken, bleeding Batman must fight his way to Blackgate, block by block, dragging E.M.P. behind him. But the dark corners of Gotham hold many surprises…and E.M.P. has many more shocks to deliver before the night is through! One of the most iconic Batman artists of the 21st century, the incomparable Jock (The Batman Who Laughs, Batman: The Black Mirror), has focused all his storytelling powers on the tale of one very, very dark night in Gotham City. It’s always darkest before the dawn—if it ever comes… MK1 Price $13.90 In Store 22nd December 2021 

BUFFY LAST VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 (OF 4) CVR A ANINDITO
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) Casey Gilly (A) Joe Jaro (CA) Ario Anindito
Can a lone Slayer save what's left of humanity?
Buffy Summers is the last Slayer. Now in her 50s, she wages a one woman fight against the forces of darkness, who prey on humanity in the daylight unimpeded thanks to a magical catastrophe that has nearly blotted out the sun.
The same disaster robbed Buffy of her friends and ended the Slayer-line, forcing her into an endless guerilla war. That is, until she stumbles across something she hasn't seen in a long time - hope, in the form of a prophecy and the young girl who carries it.
The Multiverse explodes as writer Casey Gilly (Femme Magnifique, You Died) and artist Joe Jaro (Firefly) bring you a dystopian tale of Buffy Summers as you've never seen her before for fans of Wonder Woman: Dead Earth, Batman: Last Knight On Earth, and Future State: Wonder Woman.   MK1 Price $10.00 In Store 9th December 2021

They were meant to gain the power to fight back the dread elder god Chthon - but instead they've lost their minds and all they once held dear. Was it worth the cost? And who is their bold new ally - a product of Chthon's dark dimension, or something else entirely? Steve Orlando and Cian Tormey deliver a heart-pounding conclusion to the epic Darkhold event - and introduce a hero who will take the Marvel Universe by storm!  MK1 Price $9.00 In Store 23rd December 2021

With the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY disbanded, PETER QUILL returned to Earth to find it a wasteland unlike anything he's seen across the stars - heroes dead, villains in power. While he's taken out one threat, others remain in the Wastelands, and Star-Lord's own desire to assuage his guilt for being off-world during the calamity will land him right in the middle of another!
