Can Batman/Bruce Wayne survive the Night of Owls?

Here is the list of new comics, trade paperbacks and more shipping 4/18/2012. As always check with your retailer for availability, as not all releases may be on sale in all areas at the same time.

If you could relive major events in your life, would you take a stab at making things better-and would your best attempts only make things worse? Or would you use your second chance to put your most twisted, perverted fantasies in motion? These are questions washed up actor and comedian Guy Krause asks himself after he signs up to be the main research subject for a virtual reality experiment in ‘Reset’ #1 from Dark Horse Comics.

In ‘Batman’ #8, broken and beaten, Bruce Wayne has retreated from Gotham City “the city of Owls” to Wayne Manor. However, no place is safe when the Court is about to strike at the heart of the city. Nothing will ever be the same. Be there for the start of the battle for Gotham City’s soul… and the prelude to “The Night of the Owls.” In the first chapter of a new backup story, learn the secret history of The Court of Owls, and the secrets of Gotham City and the Wayne family!

The road to issue 100 starts here in ‘The Walking Dead’ #96 with the conclusion of “A Larger World”. Will Rick’s community join the network? Will they enter into an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity, or has Rick ruined that for everyone? Has he now made more, deadlier enemies for them to deal with?

1938: The Shadow returns in a tale of blazing action and deadly intrigue, as a night of carnage on the New York waterfront plunges the mysterious vigilante into a conspiracy involving the fate of the world itself. As storm clouds gather across the globe, American Military Intelligence meets with a certain Lamont Cranston, determined to beat a host of spies and assassins to the greatest prize of all… but what that might be, only the Shadow knows in this exciting new series from Dynamite Entertainment.

All this plus… AvX Round 2! As the opening shot is fired, the Avengers storm the beach of Utopia, and the Phoenix draws ever nearer to earth! But which side will Wolverine fight on? And what choice will hope make that will change the direction and scope of the conflict dramatically?
