Today we have seven new titles on the store. Let’s start with a new addition to our Batman library: Batman: Arkham City. The Joker took over Arkham a year ago, and Gotham isn’t quite back to normal. An attack by a pair of super-powered twins increases the threat level and triggers Gotham City’s new mayor to call for drastic measures.

For all you Mercy Sparx and Hack/Slash fans, you will be very pleased with the cross-over title Hack Slash and Mercy Sparx! It’s a fun violent romp that brings DDP’s sexiest seductresses together for the first time, and will be sure not to disappoint.

We also have two new Tank Girl titles, Transformers: Devastation, the follow-up to last week’s release, Transformers: Escalation, and many more!

Hi there – here’s another comic store update for you.

Let’s start with a quality addition to our Batman range, in the form of the first two issues of 1989 series Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight. In part 1 and 2 of the 5-part “Shaman” storyline, Bruce Wayne meets a tribal shaman who influences his life forever while mountain climbing in his days before becoming Batman. Returning to Gotham City, Bruce takes up the cowl and meets Leslie Thompkins before experiencing a major tragedy.

Rumor has it that our next character could destroy Iron Man’s armor with his bare hands, and that he commands superhuman martial arts abilities. Meet chilling superbaddie Mandarin in Invincible Iron Man Annual (2010). The Mandarin is a collection of lies, stories, myths, and legends – is he really a violent street crook born in a brothel? The scion of an aristocratic dynasty? Was his father a petty criminal or an ambassador? Was his mother a British noblewoman, or maybe a dragon-chasing wastrel lost in the underbelly of the world? Find out here.
