“Welcome to the biggest brawl in the history of the universe!” That’s how writer John Layman starts issue three of Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens. The title, along with the introductory line, stretches the imagination with what to expect from three of the most notorious fighters in fiction, while Layman also provides a solid summary of events from the first two comic books in this series.

Titan Comics introduces another comic book originally published in French with its release of World War X#1. Handling interpreting responsibilities for the first two issues of Masked, Edward Gauvin again translates for this science fiction thriller.

If you are interested in a suspenseful, horrifying mystery, then Rowans Ruin is the perfect answer to satisfy this craving. BOOM! Studios presents this limited series in its entirety with this trade paperback that is destined to live on like Psycho or The Shining. It has that kind of bone-chilling quality which will leave you unable to look away, turning page after page to find out if it’s actually safe for you to read.

The world is under attack. Each and every citizen on the planet lives in fear. Any moment death might greet them quickly without warning. Cities turn to ruins and the Earth’s superheroes are being murdered, further preventing the innocent from maintaining any kind of hope. Will today be the day they die?

The artwork in Titan ComicsMasked #2 stands out with large, lively cityscapes that generate a real sense of dimension. Differently angled views of Paris show the magnificent details crafted by artists Stephane Crety, Julien Hugonnard-Bert, and Gaetan Georges. The combined efforts of these three maximize every millimeter of each page.

If you’ve never read Locke & Key from IDW Publishing, then Small World captivates its readers with amazing imagination and intricately detailed artwork. Eisner Award winners Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez unite again to give the Locke family an adventure its fans will not forget.

Mycroft Holmes doesn’t randomly look for trouble. He studies people’s personality, notices the trouble, and then invites them over for a friendly chat. It’s safe to say this quality is readily apparent in the latest chapter of Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook. In this instance, he invites the “infamous bandit Jesse James” over for a proposition that would earn the gunslinger a lot more money than a simple train heist.

Reborn #3 continues along the path set by its creators to generate an amazing story filled with unique characters, wrapped in a dream-like world. Writer Mark Millar and artist Greg Capullo fly our hero, Bonnie, into action as they further introduce her to the wondrous lands known as Adystria.

He stares at you with a wide, ghoulish smile, bold red spectacles, and long, white hair so bright it matches the lightning strikes surrounding him. Aleister Arcane is brought to life with a larger-than-life title character leering over top of a spooky looking house and a horde of morbid monsters staring dead ahead. The light beaming from the many windows of the haunted house matches the same piercing glow of each tentacled or horned creature coming for you.

Battle has started. A spherical spaceship blasts green rays down on the city it hovers above. An insurmountable invasion reaches the ground. Large plumes of thick smoke blanket the city, while the fires cast a red glow onto the invading aliens. These mechanical beings march forward, each with an optical device covering a single eye matching the color radiating from the flames. All of their bodies are some kind of black, slender cybernetics, without any signs of humanity until you meet their gaze - a humanoid head, pale with a blank stare from an uncovered eye matching the robotic expression. This city, the entire world, is dying with a level of chaos brought by this determined, unfeeling race.
