CATWOMAN #2
(W) Joelle Jones (A/CA) Jo?lle Jones
Gotham's a toxic litter box for Selina Kyle of late, so she hits the road looking to clear the air, change her look and clear her name, too-there's a copycat burglar swiping her M.O. who needs sorting out. In her hometown, Catwoman runs afoul of a crime boss who's also hunting this impostor. Can the two declare a truce to hunt a mutual enemy, or will Selina end up just more roadkill?

HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #50
(W) Robert Venditti (A) Rafa Sandoval (CA) Rafael Sandoval (A/CA) Jordi Tarragona
SRP: $3.99

This. Is. It! It's an extra-sized anniversary celebration, and one of the biggest battles the Green Lantern Corps has ever fought to mark the occasion. John Stewart issues a dramatic order: no lethal force! The Green Lanterns need to prove they can keep law and order in the universe without killing. Elsewhere, Hal Jordan faces down Tomar-Tu, and looks to use the Darkstars' armor as a weapon against them-with some psychic help from Hector Hammond (who probably shouldn't be trusted).

HAWKMAN #3
(W) Robert Venditti (A/CA) Bryan Hitch
SRP: $3.99

While searching for the next puzzle piece in his mission to save the universe, Hawkman takes flight and winds up fighting rampaging thunder lizards on Dinosaur Island-you know, as one does. Recovering from the battle, Hawkman discovers a race of bird people, who force him to fight to prove he's the one, true Hawkman. That all leads to the next location on his mission, and he's transported across the galaxy to the last place-and person-he expected to find. Where is he, and who's he facing? That would be a spoiler alert!
HAWKMAN #3

IMMORTAL MEN #5
(W) James Tynion IV (A/CA) Tyler Kirkham
SRP: $2.99

Caden Park comes to grips with his immortal lineage, thus launching a bold new era for the Immortal Men! However, this new epoch is threatened right out of the gate, as the Immortal Men must battle an unstoppable army of their fellow immortals in a floating war-city miles above New York City. That's one bite the Big Apple may not survive! Meanwhile, this war of immortals draws all kinds of unwanted attention, starting with black-ops badass Amanda Waller. Gulp!
IMMORTAL MEN #5

PLASTIC MAN #3 (OF 6)
(W) Gail Simone (A) Adriana Melo (CA) Alex Ross
SRP: $3.99

Eel went looking for a kid, but he found a Man-Bat instead, who brought him not only to the kid but also to the lair of the secret society that needs Plastic Man to stop asking inconvenient questions. Yes, it counts as comically good fortune if you squint your eyes and look around the corner (which he can totally do without even breaking a sweat. Or, you know, his neck).
PLASTIC MAN #3 (OF 6)

RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #25
(W) Scott Lobdell (A) Dexter Soy, Ryan Winn, Phil Hester, Ande Parks (A/CA) Trevor Hairsine
SRP: $4.99

Batman versus Red Hood for the right to fight in Gotham-grab your ringside seat for the battle 25 years in the making! Jason Todd broke a promise to his mentor, and must now confront an angry and betrayed Batman. That means a good time for readers, but probably not so much for Jason: it's likely going to take more than the Outlaws' help in order for the Red Hood to avoid wearing an orange jumper in prison.

From the mind of New York Times #1 bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a new world filled with dreams, nightmares and wonderful characters living together in a shared universe for a new story unlike anything we've ever seen before.
A rift between worlds has opened, revealing a space beyond the Dreaming. Meanwhile, a book from Lucien's library is discovered by a group of children in the waking world where it should not exist. Lucien calls for Matthew the Raven to seek out their master, Daniel, Lord of Dreams. 
As Matthew flies across the Waking World and others, he finds a young boy named Timothy Hunter who, in his dreams, has become the world's most powerful magician-but in his nightmares he is the world's greatest villain. A new House has appeared in the realm of the Dreaming: the House of Whispers, with its proprietor, a fortune-teller called Erzulie. And elsewhere, Lucifer has fallen again, only this time he might be trapped in a Hell of his own design.
Spiraling out of this special issue will be four all-new series set in the Sandman Universe. It all starts here!
