Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week we’re giving you exclusive first looks at BATMAN #21 and AMERICAN VAMPIRE: THE LONG ROAD TO HELL #1.

The tale may be legend but the Dark Knight’s New 52 origin has been shrouded in mystery … until now. Six years ago, Gotham City was ruled by the Red Hood gang and their mysterious leader. A sophisticated collection of anonymous Gothamites, the Red Hoods existed as sleeper agents and stood ready to answer their master’s call at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, a young and untested Bruce Wayne, legally dead and long since forgotten, arrives in the city ready to take on its new criminal overlord. Can Bruce tackle the Red Hoods without the cowl of the Dark Knight? And what sort of plans does Bruce’s uncle, his enigmatic advisor, have for the heir to Wayne Industries? From the acclaimed and New York Times bestselling creative team of Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, BATMAN #21 kicks off the explosive and highly anticipated “Zero Year.” And visit THE NEW YORK POST for another exclusive preview of the issue, which hits stores this week.

They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions … and that couldn’t be truer for Billy Bob and Jolene; two star-crossed lovers just trying to pick pocket their way to married bliss and a better life for them both. But when this couple is inducted into the ranks of the undead, their dreams of a bright future give way to a vision of America’s dark underbelly. Now Billy Bob and Jolene are streaking across the country, driven by an insatiable hunger, guided by a boy named Jasper with a penchant for finding ‘bad people’ and desperately hoping to find a rumored cure in Las Vegas. Can Billy Bob and Jolene, dubbed by the media as ‘The Heartbreak Killers’, outrun the darkness growing within them and the mysterious hunter who’s hot on their heels? Find out in AMERICAN VAMPIRE: THE LONG ROAD TO HELL #1, a special one-shot and the latest entry in the extraordinary AMERICAN VAMPIRE saga from co-writers Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque with art by Rafael Albuquerque.
