News concerning DC‘s mature imprint DC Black Label has been rather scarce lately but the publisher has revealed the cover to Batman: Last Knight on Earth by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.
Batman wakes up in a desert. He doesn’t know what year it is or how The Joker’s head is alive in a jar beside him, but it’s the beginning of a quest unlike anything the Dark Knight has undertaken before. In this strange future, villains are triumphant and society has liberated itself from the burden of ethical codes. Fighting to survive while in search of answers, Bruce Wayne uncovers the truth about his role in this new world—and begins the last Batman story ever told.
Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1 comes to shelves May 29th.
In January, creator Rob Liefeld and MarvelannouncedMajor X, the latest new spin on the X-Men universe. Major X comes from another existence called the X-instence, a mutant Shangri-La. It’s a world of peace and harmony. Something happens forcing Major X to land in the Marvel Universe but not in the spot he hoped for, he lands in 1991 and eventually makes his way to the modern-day Marvel world.
So, with a part of the multiverse to explore, we’re going to get new takes on classic characters as we’ve already seen with some of the teaser art.
Liefeld has now revealed a new take on another classic character, Cable. With his iconic scar and cybernetic arm, it’s an unmistakable new take on the character.
A cyborg samurai named Rai struggles to find his morality in the year 4002. Can he become the inspirational figure that humanity desperately needs, or will he resort to solving his problems with a sword? A nanite-filled supersoldier named Bloodshot is also on a mission to save the citizens of Earth. Will the brutal Bloodshot and the peaceful Rai work together for the greater good? All signs point to no. Oh, and did we mention there are also dinosaurs on the loose and powerful animal-human hybrid mutants? Good luck with that, Rai. Love smart sci-fi and engrossing world-building? Dan Abnett and Adam Pollina’s Fallen World has you covered!
Valiant has revealed a cover to Fallen World #1 by Jonboy Meyers.

As announced last week by Marvel, Rob Liefeld is adding another chapter into the X Universe with the upcoming series Major X launching April.
The series sees a character from another dimension, Major X, come to the main Marvel Universe. Major X comes from another existence called the X-instence, a mutant Shangri-La. It’s a world of peace and harmony. Something happens forcing Major X to land in the Marvel Universe but not in the spot he hoped for, he lands in 1991 and eventually makes his way to the modern-day Marvel world.
Liefeld continues the tease with the release of new art that we can see below. In it we clearly see Wolverine with a nod to his brown and orange outfit, Cable, a Sentinel, Shatterstar, and from there… it looks like Avalanche, to Atlanteans and a grey Beast?

BOOM! Studios announced that iconic Buffy The Vampire Slayercharacter Robin Wood will join the publisher’s hotly-anticipated reimagining of the pop culture phenomenon, in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, with the reveal of the character design by Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora.
While fans first met Robin Wood in the seventh season of the television series as both the principal of Sunnydale High and a vampire hunter, he will join the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2019 as captain of the Sunnydale Field and Track team – a model student and high school heartthrob with a mysteriously broken wrist. But when Robin meets Buffy and the Scooby Gang, some fists (and sparks) might just fly before they discover the truth about each other…and how they need to work together to save Sunnydale.
Alongside Mora, Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire and series creator/story consultant Joss Whedoninvite readers to meet a Buffy Summers like the one they know – trying to make friends at her new school, get decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil. But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize (including fan-favorite Drusilla’s debut as THE MISTRESS).
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 comes to comic shelves January 23, 2019.
For six years now in my run on THOR, I’ve been using Malekith’s war to explore the different realms that are strung along the World Tree. We’ve been to each and every one of them and seen how the people there have been touched by this war to end all wars. Now, as the war finally comes to the last realm standing, Midgard, where the heroes of Earth are waiting, those other realms will still have a pivotal part to play. Whether for good or ill remains to be seen…
