This new, ongoing Batman title delves into the more horror/supernatural elements of Gotham City.

The story of how a viral Youtube video turns Jimmy from a sweet kid with potential into a pathetic town joke.

A year's worth of wonderful diary comics.
John Carter of Mars: Weird Worlds
by Marv Wolfman / Howard Chaykin / various
When you think of Edgar Rice Burroughs, most folks think of Tarzan. One of his other creations is about to get the movie treatment - John Carter of Mars. It's kind of like Tarzan in space.
Usagi Yojimbo: The Special Edition
by Stan Sakai
If you feel like you just can't get enough of Stan Sakai's acclaimed samurai rabbit comic, this 2 volume set should easily tide you over.
