Bizarro is teetering on the brink between brilliance and – well, Bizarro! Artemis is coming to grips with her past as a secret envoy to Lex Luthor.

Aspen Comics has announced their final wave of new releases for their 15-Year Anniversary campaign. The Aspen Wave 3 titles follow the publisher’s anniversary year pattern of bringing back classic series such as their top selling Michael Turner’s Fathom and Executive Assistant: Iris while debuting new properties throughout 2018.

As the new age of magic continues in the shadows of this future landscape, Malikai and his friends try to enjoy a little down time, but such plans never seem to last. Grace continues to serve as a protector for all things magic, more specifically the dragons, but she is growing tired of having to keep the true power of the world a secret. And, there is a new danger on the horizon, a new figure in the Soulfire universe who may be the greatest threat to the fragile balance between magic and technology yet!
