the Strain 1 Cover

From director Guillermo del Toro, novelist Chuck Hogan and Darkhorse Comics... The Strain #1

Here is the list of new comics, trade paperbacks and more shipping 12/14/2011. As always check with your retailer for availability, as not all releases may be on sale in all areas at the same time.

Cable is back, and he’s got just 24 hours to wipe the Avengers from the pages of history in ‘Avengers X-Sanction’ #1. How has Cable been reborn? Where has he been since “Second Coming”? And what dark event has driven him to destroy the Avengers? The answers are just the tip of an iceberg that threatens to smash the Marvel Universe to smithereens! A crucial new series by the creators behind Superman/Batman and Hulk, Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness.

If you aren’t ready for ‘The Ray’ #1, then you didn’t buy a single DC Comic last month! Lucien Gates’s life is changed forever when he is struck by a mysterious beam of energy that turns him into a glowing gladiator — and being a human ray of light comes in handy when his city is suddenly under attack from giant, building-sized monsters. Unfortunately, light powers are less than handy in keeping his girlfriend happy.

In ‘The Strain’ #1 a Boeing 777 lands at JFK International Airport and goes dark on the runway, the Center for Disease Control, fearing a terrorist attack, calls in Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team of expert biological-threat first responders. Only an elderly pawnbroker from Spanish Harlem suspects a darker purpose behind the event – an ancient threat intent on covering mankind in darkness.

All this plus… Based on Capcom’s mega-popular zombie survival game! As Frank West and Rebecca Chang meet to form their conspiratorial alliance, the mysterious Pheonotrans director Marian Mellon and her fearsome head of security, Harjit Singh, initiate a gruesomely deadly plan against Las Vegas! More gory Dead Rising secrets revealed in Dead ‘Rising: Road To Fortune’ #2, written by Tom Waltz (Silent Hill: Past Life) and illustrated by Kenneth Loh (Killing Machine).
