New comics collected editions: Batman vs. Ra's Al Ghul, Warlock by Jim Starlin Gallery Edition

Out today. Click the links to order from Amazon.

From comics industry titan and Ra's al Ghul's original artist, Neal Adams, comes an all-new story featuring one of the Dark Knight's greatest enemies!
    Gotham City is under seige by terrorists, and Batman is determined to find the source. But when Boston Brand tries to intervene, he discovers an even more disturbing and deadly truth: the terrorists are led by an inhuman monster. Ra's al Ghul has volunteered his own private security force to aid the GCPD, and now they are the only thing standing between nuclear terror and the townspeople.
But al Ghul's true goal is hidden from everyone's eyes. He will destroy the city and kill Batman -- this time for good. Watching in horror is...Bruce Wayne?
    Collects Batman vs. Ra's Al Ghul issues #1-6.

At Marvel in the 1970s, no one mastered the startling scope of cosmic adventure like Jim Starlin! In this star-spanning spectacle, Starlin evolved Adam Warlock to the next level, imbuing the character with the inner demons of a man-god on the brink of insanity. Forced to confront an evil version of himself and the nihilistic menace Thanos, Warlock’s conflicts weren’t just knuckle-grinding throw-downs — they were existential struggles for his very soul. Featuring the first-ever assembling of the Infinity Gems, the debuts of Gamora and Pip the Troll, and an all-out struggle to save the universe — joined by the Avengers, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man! And now, the full epic grandeur of Starlin’s saga is unleashed on the oversized pages of a Gallery Edition!

Coming up: "Gil Kane’s The Amazing Spider-Man Artisan Edition"

Out in July 2022. Order now from Amazon

Details:

Gil Kane’s The Amazing Spider-Man Artisan Edition presents each page in what appears to be black and white, but has actually been scanned in color. Readers view the art in its most natural form—blue pencils, ink gradients, and editorial notations all clearly visible—so they can (ahem) marvel at all the little nuances that make original art unique.

This volume contains the infamous three-part drug story that was not approved by the Comics Code Authority (Amazing Spider-Man #96–98). The second three-part story features the legendary six-armed Spider-Man saga (Amazing Spider-Man #100–102). Additionally, one of the most famous—and most shocking—Spidey tales is included: the death of Gwen Stacey! (Amazing Spider-Man #121). You can’t get a better line-up of Spider-Man stories than this!

Gil Kane is regarded as one of the finest comic artists in the history of the medium. His dynamic sequential storytelling abilities, coupled with impeccable draftsmanship, make him a true artist’s artist—as this book will attest!
