Happy Labor Day!


For this week’s installment of Preview Mondays, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at ANIMAL MAN #0 and FAIREST #7!


In ANIMAL MAN #0, witness the origin story you’ve been waiting for! Find out how Buddy Baker became Animal Man. The twist? What actually was the catalyst for Buddy’s superhero persona versus what he perceived happened are two very different stories. Planting seeds that will be fully explored in the “Rotworld” crossover event with SWAMP THING this fall, ANIMAL MAN #0 is written by Jeff Lemire and illustrated by Steve Pugh. Click here to see an exclusive preview of the issue, which goes on sale this Wednesday.


Set in 1940’s Los Angeles, FAIREST #7 is a stand-alone issue from the guest creative team of Matthew Sturges and Shawn McManus. In this Fable Noir, both Beast and St. George are scouring dive bars and smoky clubs looking for a ruthless femme fatale. But who will find her first?  And how many innocent men will be lured in by her and killed before they catch her? Click here to see an exclusive preview of FAIREST #7, in stores this week.
