    THE 13TH SON: WORSE THING WAITING #3 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writer: Kelly Jones
    Artist: Kelly Jones

    The 13th Son tells the story of the world's ultimate monster hunter - a creature far more horrific and terrible than any of the monsters it hunts!

    The third issue of this nightmarish tale drags readers clawing and screaming through the darkest realms of the Earth, where an all-out monster war is on between the Son and his quarry - every vampire, werewolf, ghoul, and demon on the planet. Meanwhile, the witch who birthed the Son into this world is acting on nefarious designs of her own, which could derail the plans of the Son, and send humanity scurrying from the terrors she seeks to unleash!

    AEON FLUX #4 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writer: Mike Kennedy
    Artist: Timothy Green II

    The best-laid plans are those that change. The Monican Rebellion's scheme to sabotage the Bregnan government's defoliant cannons must adjust to a shortened timetable, and flat-out destruction seems their quickest and best alternative. But Aeon has other priorities as well, namely finding her mysterious young trainee, Sithandra, and settling matters properly! No one abhors manipulation more than Aeon, and this is a lesson anyone who confronts her will remember for the rest of their short lives...

    STAR WARS: PURGE (One-Shot)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writer: John Ostrander
    Artists: Doug Wheatley, Adam Hughes (Cover)

    After Order 66, few Jedi dare to venture outside the shadows—rumors of the dark and terrible Darth Vader haunting even their waking moments. Yet, some Jedi find this life of fear unbearable. Now, a small band of Jedi have agreed to meet and discuss what should be done to oppose the Empire and its Sith Lords. However, the Empire is always watching, and Vader himself is eager to confront any Jedi that might bring him closer to the whereabouts of his betrayer, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Prepare for Jedi versus Sith action unlike any seen since the Old Republic in this special one-shot follow-up to Revenge of the Sith!
