BURBANK, CA (August 11, 2022) – A shattered hero must overcome battle-inflicted blindness and seemingly insurmountable odds to save his village and, ultimately all of Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind, an all-new, feature-length film produced by Warner Bros. Animation in coordination with NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games. The film arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital on October 9, 2022 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray on October 11, 2022.

Assisted by a trio of cold Black Dragon mercenaries, he embarks on a brutal assault from town to defenseless town. The choice is simple: Kneel or be annihilated. But when the cocky and talented but undisciplined Kenshi doesn’t take a knee, Kano and his clan destroy the young warrior, taking his eyesight and his confidence. Under the tutelage of reluctant, retired Kuai Liang, the only one powerful enough to challenge the malevolent Kano, Kenshi finds renewed hope and a clear path to redemption. But will it be enough to stop Kano from decimating all of Earthrealm?

IT’S GAME OVER FOR MARVEL'S HEROES IN NEW MURDERWORLD COMIC SERIES!
Jim Zub, Ray Fawkes, and Jethro Morales run wild with a brand-new saga centered around Arcade and Murderworld, starting with MURDERWORLD: AVENGERS in November
New York, NY— August 11, 2022 — Let the games begin! This November, Marvel’s greatest heroes will confront the full terror of MURDERWORLD in a new saga!
Crafted by writers Jim Zub (Conan the Barbarbian, Avengers: No Surrender) and Ray Fawkes (One Soul, Constantine), this five-part series will plunge readers into the darkest depths of Arcade’s Murderworld, the classic location that’s caused mayhem in the Marvel Universe for decades! Overloaded with gut-wrenching twists, unbelievable deaths, and bloodied and bruised Marvel heroes, this unpredictable story will reveal just how deadly Murderworld truly is and uncover shocking truths behind the countless victims that have found themselves trapped there.
Zub and Fawkes will be joined by a murderer’s row of talented artists throughout the series starting with Jethro Morales. The wildly violent ride will kick off in MURDERWORLD: AVENGERS #1 and then continue in one-shots starring Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Moon Knight before exploding in typical Murderworld fashion in a dramatic finale issue!
READY. SET. DIE! Hundreds are killed every year in an elaborate secret tournament run by a sadistic man with nearly limitless resources at his fingertips. It’s not an urban legend. It’s not a myth – MURDERWORLD is real! It’s online, and the gruesome truth has been hidden from everyone except its victims – until NOW. Meet Paul Pastor, the extraordinary young documentarian who’s going to expose it all…with some super-powered help, starting with the Avengers! In MURDERWORLD: AVENGERS, the Black Widow has a personal grudge to settle with Murderworld mastermind Arcade – but can she stop this game before it kills again?
"When I first saw Murderworld in an issue of Uncanny X-Men, I was fascinated by its colorful corniness mixed with deception and violence,” Zub explained. “Many years ago, Ray and I chatted about a twisted thriller-survival story set in Arcade's deadly playground and now, starting with MURDERWORLD: AVENGERS, we're finally getting the chance to unleash it!"
“Murderworld is one of those stealthy, ultra-compelling concepts that always made the Marvel Universe so fascinating to me - the gaudy, family-fun veneer slapped over a deadly threat. When Jim and I were discussing it, ideas to make it more and more frightening and exciting just kept coming to us. I’m thrilled to bring them to readers in all their horrible glory!” Fawkes added.
Be there when Arcade powers up Murderworld and raises the stakes higher than ever in MURDERWORLD: AVENGERS this November! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

MARVEL'S MERC WITH THE MOUTH IS BACK IN BUSINESS IN DEADPOOL #1!
Alyssa Wong and Martin Coccolo launch a new DEADPOOL ongoing series this November
New York, NY— August 10, 2022 — Deadpool’s next era begins this November and he’ll have to be more lethal than ever to handle what’s coming his way! Deadpool’s new ongoing series will be written by Alyssa Wong, known for her acclaimed work on thrilling books like Star Wars: Doctor Aphra and Iron Fist, and drawn by Martin Coccolo, the artist currently wowing readers in the action-packed Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War crossover. The two rising Marvel stars will take out their pent up aggression on everyone’s pizza-faced, jabber-mouthed, misguided, hate-to-love, love-to-hate fave in new Deadpool adventures loaded with riotous violence and relentless body horror. Deadpool’s latest solo exploits will kick off with a bang as a new mercenary group sends Deadpool on one of his most dangerous missions, an intoxicating villain unleashes a twisted plan on Wade’s body with horrifying side effects, and a hot new romance arrives on the scene to drive Wade crazy!
The world knows Wade Wilson is one of the top mercenary/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he is simultaneously the most annoying one…but he’s pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as the Atelier. Now, he has 48 hours to kill one of the world’s most famous supervillains. Only problem? He’s been kidnapped, and something…strange…is GROWING INSIDE HIM.
"I love chaos. And what is Deadpool if not chaos incarnate? I'm honored to take the reins for Wade's next solo adventure--expect romance, expect body horror, and expect a wild time!" Wong promises.
“Some time ago I got to do a ten-page story for Deadpool: Black, White & Blood. It was an awesome albeit short experience which left me wanting for more, so when I was asked if I wanted to take the reins of a new Deadpool series I responded with a resounding yes!” Coccolo said. “Then I got to read Alyssa's script and I loved it! Their script is inventive, dynamic and a lot of fun and working with Alyssa is an absolute joy. They are the best! So I honestly couldn't be happier with this opportunity and I think, or at least hope, that readers notice how fun this project is for everyone involved and hopefully they hop on the ride with us!”
Discover just how wild Wade Wilson’s life can get when DEADPOOL #1 arrives in November! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Bad Kitty is Back in the Big Easy!
In Indiegogo Special by Tom Hutchison, CB Zane & More!
Dynamite is proud to announce the return of the former good cop turned zombie hunter, Bad Kitty. This action-packed new special is being written by Tom Hutchinson (Penny For Your Soul), with art by CB Zane, and colors by Chris Chua. It will also feature multiple pulse-pounding covers from some of the hottest names in the industry. Fans can get their copy right now via Indiegogo!
Former Detective Katherine Bell has been away from New Orleans for a long time, but she and her cat Lucky return to hunt down a reported Skinwalker. But when her battle with the creature gets splashed all over social media, it catches the attention of the police who are still hunting Bad Kitty. All bets are off when the spirit she’s hunting takes over an even stronger body and Bad Kitty must team up with the city’s new detective to try and stop it. It's an action-packed supernatural tale with teeth in the Big Easy.
"Bad Kitty was always a book I looked forward to back in the day," said Tom Hutchison. "Never did I imagine I'd get a chance to write the character myself, and with an artist I enjoy working with so much in CB Zane. With this new issue, we wanted to bring you back to the roots of Bad Kitty, getting you reacquainted with her, Lucky, and the general world she inhabits, while simultaneously kicking down the doors to the wide-open possibilities this character has!"
Bad Kitty first appeared in 2001 as part of the Chaos! mythos, and made her way over to Dynamite in 2010. Katherine Bell was a good cop in the heart of a complicated Crescent City when what should’ve been a routine case brought her into conflict with the corruption on the police force. But it went deeper that that as elements of voodoo turned her lover into a zombie that was then sent to kill her. She turned in her badge and went hunting for those that ruined her life. And while they ended up dead, she became one of the FBI’s most wanted. Taking alias of Bad Kitty, she went on the run with nothing but her weapons and her black cat, Lucky, in an attempt to survive and to hunt down the supernatural wherever it lies.
Writer Tom Hutchinson, co-founder of Big Dog Ink Comics and writer/creator of Penny for Your Soul, The Legend of Oz, Critter, and Ursa Minor is reteaming with his partner, artist CB Zane who has also worked on The In Crowd, Into the Suck, Whispers in Necropolis, and Scorpiana, for this thrilling adventure that takes Bad Kitty back to her home town and forces her to deal with both her past and a crazy new creature of immense power.
On Indiegogo, readers and collectors can pick up a wide variety of reward tier options for supporting this project. Nine total standard covers are available, featuring CB Zane, Joseph Michael Linsner, Shannon Maer, Maria Laura Sanapo, Bill McKay, Michael Sta. Maria, Brian Pederson, and two featuring cosplayer Rachel Hollon. A digital edition is also available for readers! Metal, holofoil, and CGC graded copies of the covers are available.

THE MAD TITAN REVISITS HIS BRUTAL PAST AND EMBRACES HIS DARKEST FUTURE IN THANOS: DEATH NOTES!
An all-star lineup of creators explore THANOS’ past, present, and future in a new one-shot this November
New York, NY— August 9, 2022 — This November, Marvel Comics will publish a special one-shot starring one of the most iconic comic villains of all time—THANOS! THANOS: DEATH NOTES will be an oversized issue containing riveting stories about the Mad Titan’s life and begin the path towards his next conquest. This issue spins directly out of Donny Cates and Nic Klein’s THOR run where Thor recently beheld a terrifying future involving Thanos and vowed to use all his power to prevent it. THANOS: DEATH NOTES will be brought together by an incredible lineup of creators including J. Michael Straczynski, Torunn Grønbekk, Kyle Starks, Christopher Cantwell, Andrea Di Vito, Travel Foreman, and one of the character’s most definitive artists, cosmic extraordinaire Ron Lim!
Thanos is missing, presumed dead after the chilling events of Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribić’s ETERNALS. But Thor has seen a vision of his return. And it is enough to make even a God fear. To prepare himself, to prepare the universe, Thor desperately searches for answers in Thanos’ past…and finds a glimpse of the Marvel Universe’s dark future.
“Ever since the Black Winter gave Thor a glimpse of how he was going to die way back in THOR #6, and Thor saw that it was going to be at the hands of a Thanos wielding not only an Infinity Stones-encrusted Mjolnir but also seemingly a new black Infinity Stone (not to mention with an army of undead super heroes and villains at his side), Thor has been working to prevent this horrific fate,” said Editor Wil Moss. “In this THANOS one-shot, his quest brings him to look to Thanos’ past for clues. But in doing so, will Thor learn something of use, or merely realize that Thanos truly is inevitable? Big things are set up here, brought to you by an all-star cast of creators -- don’t miss it!”
See the universe tremble once more when THANOS begins his next era in THANOS: DEATH NOTES #1 this November. For more information, visit Marvel.com.

GREG PAK RETURNS TO SAKAAR IN PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER!
Greg Pak teams up with artist Manuel Garcia for a new PLANET HULK saga, coming this November
New York, NY— August 8, 2022 — In 2006, writer Greg Pak along with artists Carlo Pagulayan and Aaron Lopresti crafted PLANET HULK, one of the most iconic stories to ever grace the pages of Incredible Hulk, and this November, Pak will return to this storyline in PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER! This five-issue limited series will take place a thousand years into the future and present a shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar. Pak will be joined by visionary Devil’s Reign artist Manuel Garcia.
Considered a modern Marvel masterpiece, PLANET HULK told the rousing story of Hulk’s time on the alien planet Sakaar after being exiled from Earth by the Illuminati. The epic story arc had a defining impact on Hulk that’s still felt today and went on to inspire spinoffs and media adaptations. Now, the saga continues…
A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists. But which Hulk will she find? And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all — or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us?
“Working on Planet Hulk remains one of the greatest experiences I've ever had in storytelling,” Pak said. “So it was a huge thrill to get the call from editor Mark Paniccia inviting me to dive back in. What makes this story feel so special is that we're going back to Sakaar a thousand years in the future. That's opened up doors to do some spectacular worldbuilding with mindblowing art from Manuel Garcia, Cam Smith, and Chris Sotomayor. And we're exploring big emotional stories that pay off the huge themes of the Hulk and the Green Scar that I've built over many years through all my Hulk stories. In a time of change and crisis, what do we do with the power we have, and how do we handle the terrifying repercussions? A thousand years from now, who knows where those questions will take us?”
