New Arrivals for Wednesday February 10th

Jonesy #1 - Just in time for Valentine's Day, Jonesy is a comic about love that makes us swoon! Jonesy is a self-described "cool dork" who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. She's a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There's only one catch-it doesn't work on herself. She's gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong...

"Read More" to see everything coming out this week.

Batman: Arkham Knight Batgirl and Harley Quinn #1 - Two stories, one comic! In the first story staring Batgirl and Harley Quinn, Barbara Gordon struggles with her role as Gotham City's newest masked avenger, while Arkham Asylum's Dr. Harleen Quinzel battles her own inner demons as her criminal career as Harley Quinn is just beginning. Written by Tim Seeley, with art by Matthew Clark, Wade von Grawbadger and Sean Parsons, this story appears in print for the first time here and includes appearances by Batman and The Joker. This second story features the stunning origin of Batgirl in in the Batman: Arkham universe!

Shaft: Imitation of Life #1 - After a high profile case that put him in the headlines, private detective John Shaft is looking for something low profile and easy that will keep him out of the spotlight and out of danger. Shaft takes a missing person case that proves to be more difficult than he initially thought. At the same time, he is hired to be a consultant on a low budget film that may or may not be based on his life, and proves to be as dangerous as any job he's ever had. But when there's danger all about, John Shaft is the cat that won't cop out - even if it means squaring off against sadistic gangsters that want him dead.

Badger #1 - Fans have demanded it and now, at long last, the Badger returns! A brand new story ripped from today's headlines, from the inimitable Mike Baron! Badger as you've never seen him:  Raw! Furious! Crazier than Randy Quaid! Jim Fern's art will astonish! With a killer variant cover by Paul Pope!

Dark and Bloody #1 -   Guns, moonshine, monsters-there's a lot going on in the backwoods of Kentucky. Iris Gentry is a war veteran who returned from Iraq to find his options for supporting his family limited. Since they live in a "dry" county, Iris has turned to running moonshine for his former ranking officer-meaning the men now share crimes at home and abroad. You see, back in their combat days, Iris's regiment got involved in something they shouldn't have, and now a deadly, otherworldly consequence has come looking for vengeance.

Second Sight #1 - 20 years ago, Ray Pilgrim became a celebrity when he discovered his unique ability to see through the eyes of psychotic killers who were terrorizing London.  But his world collapsed around him when he was accused of the same crimes as the monsters he hunted.
Now, Pilgrim's teenage daughter is using her blog to investigate a ring of child abusers that includes some of the most powerful men in British society - men who are prepared to kill anyone who threatens to expose them. In order to protect his daughter and uncover the truth, Pilgrim must reluctantly revisit his past and the twisted path that led to the hotel room the media called The Bloody Chamber.
