Moon Knight’s nemesis from the smash hit Disney+ series makes her comics debut! When a young runaway is attacked by a gang of death cultists, he is left barely alive outside Moon Knight’s HQ, the Midnight Mission. 

But Marc Spector made a vow long ago to defend the travelers of the dark as Moon Knight…and as long as a spark of life remains, his mission isn’t over yet. 

Follow Moon Knight on his most harrowing adventure yet, as he journeys far beyond the land of the living — and battles across the mind-bending underworld known as the City of the Dead! There, he must grapple with his past when he turns to an unlikely source for aid — Layla El-Fouly, A.K.A. the Scarlet Scarab! 

But when Marc is faced with a murderers’ row of dead super villains whom he helped put in the ground, can even the Fist of Khonshu defy the odds long enough to survive?

COLLECTIING: Moon Knight: City of the Dead (2023) #1-5.

Rising from the tomb comes EC Archives: The Vault of Horror Volume 4, now in a value-priced paperback edition!

Includes the Al Feldstein/Joe Orlando adaptation of the Ray Bradbury story “The Lake” and a foreword by bestselling horror author Jonathan Maberry.

Collects The Vault of Horror issues #30–#35.

The Doctor’s comic strip adventures continue! Written by Scott Gray and Jacqueline Rayner, with art by Martin Geraghty and Russ Leach, The White Dragon is the second collection of Thirteenth Doctor tales, taken from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine.

The stories are diverse in their settings, ranging from psychic creatures causing havoc in 1950s small-town America; a martial arts masterpiece as the Doctor teams-up with Bruce Lee in 1970s Hong Kong; a visit to a forest planet that harbours an arboreal horror; a trip to the pantomime that induces an extreme case of stage fright; and a dilapidated English manor that’s rumoured to be a gateway to hell!

Also includes special behind-the-scenes features with exclusive material revealing how the strips were created, including artwork and commentary from the writers and artists.

Beloved French cartoonists Lewis Trondheim and Nicolas Kéramidas (Donald's Happiest Adventures) return for another epic saga sending Mickey and Donald on the Beagle Boys' globetrotting trail!

When Peg Leg Pete and the Beagle Boys shrink and steal Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin, Mickey and Donald must track them down… across lost cities, ancient lands, under the sea, in the air, and…into space?!? In a hilarious satire that will entertain all ages, Mickey's Craziest Adventures introduces its epic tale as if it were a rare 1965 Disney classic, deemed too wild for publication and saved only in fragments — but in fact, modern comics masters Lewis Trondheim and Nicolas Keramidas have created an exciting all-new album-length stand-alone Disney thriller, drawn in a kinetic indie-comics style and presented like a classic vintage work, hiding the fact that it's actually shamelessly spoofing Silver Age comics clichés!

Air Ace Johnny Red and Angel of Death Nina Petrova face off against the Nazi invaders, lethal British agent Dredger deals with the abduction of the only person dear to his stony heart, and the louche Major Eazy must lead his men through the Devil’s Garden of El Alamein. There’s action aplenty with roguish British commandoes Rat Pack, along with Death Squad, their equally deadly German counterparts. And the hellish arctic ocean is the setting for HMS Nightshade, the classic tale of war at sea.

Writer Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys) is joined by an incredible roster of top-tier talent, with stories by original Battle Action writer John Wagner (Judge Dredd, Robo-Hunter), Torunn Gronbekk (Thor, Red Sonja), Rob Williams (Suicide Squad, Petrol Head) and Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy, Lawless), and featuring art by industry greats like Keith Burns (Out of the Blue), Chris Burnham (Batman, Doom Patrol), Henry Flint (Hawk The Slayer) and John Higgins (Watchmen, Dreadnoughts). There’s blazing Battle Action on every page!
