NEW COMICS

Hecate the witch-goddess of magic is kicking off spooky season in a big way in 'Wonder Woman and Justice League Dark: The Witching Hour' #1 as she begins to siphon out magic from people across the world, inluding Wonder Woman herself!  Plus, in 'Nightwing' #50, after barely surviving a bullet to the head, Dick Grayson's life changes forever. Does this mean the death of Nightwing?! Finally, in 'Green Lanterns' #56, Cyborg Superman and the Ravagers take advantage of the weakened Corps to bring the cosmos to the brink of destruction. Check out the full list of new titles below!

Last week's episode of DC Universe's 'Titans' ended on a cliffhanger...or is that a skyscraper-hanger? While Jason Todd's life hangs in the balance, in this week's episode of 'Titans' we meet possibly the bravest and most noble future member of the team...Krypto! Oh, and some guy named Conner. Check out "Conner" when it drops this Friday, October 11th to find out more!

POLL POSITION

As we mentioned before, as of the last episode of 'Titans,' Jason Todd's fate is up in the air...literally. As a nod to the infamous original poll that doomed Jason to death, our poll this week asks if you think 'Titans' Jason Todd should live or die? As of now, Jason will live another day, but these things do have a tendency to turn out badly for him....

 

 

PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY

This week's DCU Book Club covers the incredible and highly-acclaimed 'Exit, Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles,' which reimagines Hanna-Barbara's Southern dandy as a closeted playwright caught up in the McCarthy witch hunts of the 1950s. An amazing gem of a book, it should spur lots of great discussions, so be sure to hop on in! Also, @RedInferno asks for your dream Justice League line-up. For our tastes, if it doesn't have Martian Manhunter, it ain't for us... Finally, @AstroWolfBoy asks for your Halloween reading recommendations. We might have a good list for you, AWB, sooner than you think!
