Sideways…caught between a cop and a hard case! Derek’s got the cops in his house when he uncovers an important clue that could crack his mother’s case wide open. Seems the powers that be at Dark Sciences know about his superpowers, and they’ve got the paperwork to prove it. But then metahuman mercenary Bolt crashes the party, puts the kibosh on Derek and gets his hands on the evidence. Bolt takes Derek back to Professor Portefoy, whose plan is straight out of the evil-scientist playbook: drain the Dark Matter energy from Derek to steal his rift powers!

In the wake of his mother’s death, Derek learns that home is where the hell is. Despondent over missing her funeral and shunned by his father because of it, Sideways reunites with his best friend Ernie for some heart-to-heart talk. Her family life is in shambles, too, as Derek learns her folks are divorcing and splitting up the family. The heartbreak prompts them to take a quick jaunt to Paris, where Sideways ends up getting called into action because of a terrorist attack. A hero in France but a pariah at home, Sideways ponders his future-but he may not have much future left, as Dark Star Sciences boss Leto learns he’s back and dispatches super-assassin Bolt to capture him. Maybe stay in Paris for another croissant instead?

As Bond undergoes a post-mission medical examination, he relays the story of his previous mission to the examiner. Each cut, bruise, and broken bone connected to a specific event of the mission. A connection is made between two people with different purposes: one to save lives, the other to take them.

James Bond leads the interrogation of a scientist who allowed a lethal virus to be stolen. But when the investigation takes a surprising turn, Bond begins to question whether he is enough.

PART THREE – THE GUT

One sauna. Twenty Neo-Nazis. One Bond. James Bond.

This weapons deal won’t go according to plan.

PART FOUR – THE HEART

On the run from a lethal antagonist, weaponless and wounded deep in the Highlands, Bond finds solace with a woman who exchanged her job as a doctor and a life in the city for a cottage and solitary life of a writer. Can Bond find a quiet peace unlike he has known before or will his life choices catch up with him?

The Third Giant Batman and Teen Titans is Out Soon at Walmart

On the heels of Tom King and Andy Kubert’s debut in the exclusive-to-Walmart Superman 100-page Giant #3, Batman fans of all stripes will get their own dose of superstar talent as issue #3 of the Batman 100-page Giant ships to stores, featuring part one of an original 12-part story, “Batman Universe,” written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Nick Derington.

Along with colorist Dave Stewart and letterer Josh Reed, Bendis and Derington weave a tale that leads Batman on a wild goose chase spanning the DC universe, tracking down a mysterious artifact that contains the literal key to evolution. But Vandal Savage has his own plans for this artifact and the Dark Knight will have his hands full in stopping the evil immortal before he gains control of both the key and humanity as well.

The Batman Giant also includes chapters from the iconic Jeph Loeb/Jim Lee story Batman: Hush, as well as Kyle Higgins and Eddy Barrows’ “Welcome to Gotham,” and Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Chad Hardin’s “Hot in the City,” from the New 52 Nightwing and Harley Quinn.

Arriving with the Batman Giant is issue #3 of the Teen Titans Giant, featuring “Enter… The Disruptor,” a new chapter of the original six-part Teen Titans story by Dan Jurgens and Scot Eaton, plus more from from Geoff Johns’ version of the Teen Titans from The New 52 (with art by Mike McKone), Peter J. Tomasi and Jorge Jimenez’ Super Sons from Rebirth and New Age of Heroes Sideways, by Kenneth Rocafort, Dan DiDio, and Justin Jordan.

Each 100-page Giant sells for $4.99 and should arrive at all participating Walmart locations throughout North America by Sunday, September 23.
