Innocent victims maimed or broken by Batman’s greatest enemies band together, and they blame Batman and his fellow vigilantes for what happened to them just as much as they blame the psychopaths who hurt them.

From writer James Tynion (BATMAN/TMNT) and artist Alvaro Martinez (BATMAN ETERNAL) comes the second volume of the return of DETECTIVE COMICS! Collects DETECTIVE COMICS #943-949.

BAD MACHINERY Vol. 7: The Case of the Forked Road

Time is a fickle creature, especially when there’s wormhole in the science cupboard. When a strange boy who seems far too entranced by cell phones appears, it’s up to Lottie, Shauna, and Mildred to figure out his strange purposes. The Case of the Forked Road, the seventh book in John Allison’s award-winning Bad Machinery series, finds our young sleuths facing the intricacies of time and space itself. What is their science teacher hiding? Who is the mysterious Calvin, why is he dressed like it’s 1960, and why is he obsessed with Communists? And another thing: just what is going on with Jack, Sonny, and Linton?

THE MARCH OF THE CRABS Vol. 2

Originally published in French, continue with this second of three volumes of the Eisner Award-nominated adventure from critically acclaimed illustrator and animator Arthur de Pins. It’s crabs versus the world after all species evolve…except one: the square crab. It simply cannot change direction, condemned to walk in one straight line forever. But during one seemingly ordinary summer, three square crabs take matters into their own claws and rebel against the straight and narrow path they have been sentenced to, upending the entire ecosystem in the process.
