The aliens have arrived. And they're hungry for electricity. In the Earth of the future, humans are on the run from an alien force-giant blobs who suck up electrical devices wherever they can find them. Strata and her family are part of a caravan of digital rescuers, hoping to keep the memory of civilization alive by saving electronics wherever they can. Many humans have reverted to a pre-electrical age, and others have taken advantage of the invasion to become dangerous bandits and outlaws. When Strata and her brother are separated from the caravan, they must rely on a particularly beautiful and rare robot pony to escape the outlaws and aliens-and defeat the invaders once and for all.
Written by Eisner Award-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (The Spire, X-Men Legacy) and illustrated by breakout talent Jonas Goonface, Godshaper introduces a vast world where there's a god for every person and a person for every god...though for Ennay, unfortunately exceptions may apply. People like him are Godshapers, godless social pariahs with the ability to mold and shape the gods of others. Paired with Bud, an off-kilter but affectionate god without a human, the two travel from town to town looking for shelter, a hot meal, and the next paying rock 'n' roll gig.
Exploding from DC's blockbuster Rebirth event, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 2: GOING SANE by writer Rob Williams and legendary artist Jim Lee delivers the thrilling conclusion to one of Task Force X's greatest missions. As the go-to team tasked with handling the world's most top secret threats, the Suicide Squad has faced down terrors across the globe. But they've never brought their work home with them-until now. Under the command of Task Force X's iron-fisted director Amanda Waller, the Squad has 'liberated' a strange extradimensional orb known as the Black Vault from the planet's most secure incarceration facility-at the cost of one disintegrated team member. What's inside the eerie black sphere? None other than Kryptonian dictator General Zod, in all his megalomaniacal, world-destroying glory. Now Waller has to figure out what to do with one of the most dangerous entities in the known universe. In theory, whoever controls Zod controls the world. In practice, the Black Vault's corrupting energies are already eroding the sanity of everyone in the Squad's HQ-with the sole exception of the Clown Princess of Crazy herself, Harley Quinn! But can one newly sane psychologist single-handedly stop the madness of the Black Vault, defeat Zod and keep the Suicide Squad from ultimately living up to its name? From writer Rob Williams and superstar artist Jim Lee, SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 2: GOING SANE includes stories illustrated by Stephen Bryne, Carlos D'Anda, Christian Ward, Giuseppe Camuncoli and more! Also includes the HARLEY QUINN AND THE SUICIDE SQUAD APRIL FOOLS' SPECIAL one-shot.
