The branches of The Golden Tree spread out in THE SPIRIT #2

Angel Smerti’s a lady who gets what she wants – and her top priority is seeing The Spirit in a coffin. Plus, our hero’s first encounter with the sprawling criminal empire known as The Golden Tree reveals that the organization threatens much more than just Central City. All of this and a few surprises thanks to writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat.

End your week with some FIRST WAVE #2 pages

Writer Brian Azzarello and artist Rags Morales return for the second installment in the FIRST WAVE mini-series, as The Golden Tree begins to bear fruit. The Blackhawks are on the hunt for the Spirit. Doc Savage is after the Blackhawks. Anton Colossi is after William “Johnny” Littlejohn. And only Rima, the eyes of the jungle, knows what the heroes do not: something glorious and terrible has risen in the darkest corner of Hida’lgo.

THE SPIRIT #1 is here

Starting today, the Spirit returns in an all-new ongoing series from writer Mark Schultz and artist Moritat. Central City destroys everyone who lives within its borders, so it's a good thing The Spirit's already experienced being dead, huh?

The international crime syndicate known as The Golden Tree wants to help the devious Octopus consolidate his control over the underworld and the Spirit is the kind of mess the evil conglomerate was created to clean up. What chance does the vigilante have against one of The Golden Tree's deadliest assassins? Guess we'll find out...

Get a first look at DOC SAVAGE #1

Writer Paul Malmont and artist Howard Porter join forces to launch the Man of Bronze into his own ongoing series. And with Doc Savage the target of a brazen attack on New York City, you can be sure things don't start off slowly. Tragedy will strike one of Doc's compatriots and someone may not survive the first issue's opening pages. We've got a sneak peek at the first issue right here, which hits today.

A first look at THE SPIRIT: BLACK AND WHITE co-feature

Starting with the first issue of the new SPIRIT ongoing series, each issue will feature a SPIRIT: BLACK AND WHITE co-feature from the top talents around the industry.

We were psyched when this piece of artwork found its way into our inbox, as we’ll sure you’ll be when you click on it.

THE SPIRIT #1 hits in April.
