Batman the Murder Machine #1
As the events of Dark Nights: METAL rock the DC Universe, the creatures of the Dark Multiverse stand ready to invade our world. How can even the World’s Greatest Heroes stop a horde of deadly beings that appear to be powerful, nightmare versions of familiar figures? Find out in the special tie-in issues that kick off with a very dark version of Batman.
Generations: The Spiders #1
When it comes to problems, Peter Parker’s got it all. Bullies at school, an ailing aunt, a doppelganger, crushing responsibility, and… wait, a doppelganger?! Can’t Peter ever catch a break? And what does all this craziness have to do with Miles Morales? Brian Michael Bendis imagines a run-in between modern Miles and classic Peter as the Generations one-shots come to a close.
Set in the world of Dishonored after the events of Dishonored 2, this new comic series follows Emily Kaldwin as she returns to Dunwall for an adventure with Corvo Attano. Emily comes into conflict with a politician named Archibald Dufrane and, just as her investigation into a mysterious killer gets underway, her powers begin to falter.

Then, learn “The Chilling Secret of the Lighthouse!”
This issue introduces Ianthe, who has very big plans for The Will.
