    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Mike Richardson, Randy Stradley, Chris Warner
    Pencils: Adam Hughes, Doung Mahnke, Paul Chadwick, Chris Warner, Paul Gulacy, Jerry Ordway, Terry Dodson, Various

    In the not-too-distant past, the first nuclear weapon test changed the world forever . . . but not in the way we expected. Unleashed upon the planet was a microscopic technological virus of unknown origin that infected millions-some to no effect, some to horrifying agonies and disfigurement, others with the gift of incredible and sometimes terrifying power. But would a world populated by supermen become a battleground for good against bad . . . or bad against worse? Is it true that with great power comes great responsibility . . . or does it truly come with great license?

    Dark Horse Heroes Omnibus collects Comics Greatest World and Will to Power, the two hit maxiseries created by Dark Horse Comics that turned the concept of the superhero universe on its head, bringing together an all-star team of creators.

    There are reasons why hostage negotiators get special training. They need to create calm, bond with their targets, and appear credibly understanding and empathetic. In the crumbling city of Snowtown, the closest thing they have to a hostage negotiator is detective Richard Fell, who has a dozen psychology books and a history of shooting people who annoy him. And, in Snowtown, hostage-takers aren't doing it for personal gain. They're only doing it for hate.

    Lifelike is a diverse collection of slice-of-life stories... and beyond. Each vignette, illustrated by a different artist, presents a glimpse into a different corner of the world outside our window. From the sentimental to the shocking, the familiar to the unknown, it's all here.

    Lifelike’s stories are not limited to the clichéd autobiographic tales so often associated with the genre. Instead, the stories range in content from noir crime to love stories to war memoirs to humorous conversation pieces. A multicultural, multiethnic cast of characters infuses the book with a realism often missing from today’s comics.

    All the stories are written by Dara Naraghi (Cory Doctorow’s Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now) with the art provided by a variety of award-winning artists, including Marvin Mann, 2006 Day Prize winner, 3-time Harvey Award nominee, Forward Magazine Honorary Mention, Glyph Award nominee, and YALSA nominee; Tom Williams, 2002 Day Prize winner; Adrian Barbu, 2003 L. Ron Hubbard “Illustrators of the Future” Achievement Award winner.

    "There are so many different visual styles here, and Naraghi is such a versatile storyteller, that they barely seem to be part of the same series, but there's something that links them together, a great storyteller's sensibility. From hard-boiled noir crime to war memoirs to sweet, sentimental stories, Lifelike has the feel of a great comics anthology, like Drawn and Quarterly or World War III." —Cory Doctorow, Nebula and Locus award winning novelist

    THE STRANDED #1

    Publisher:
    Virgin Comics
    Writers: Mike Carey
    Pencils: Virgin Studios
    Covers: Mark Silvestri, Greg Horn

    Over the past two years, Virgin Comics has become the hottest new destination for graphic storytelling. At the same time, SciFi has established itself as THE brand name for fantasy and speculative television, with hit series like EUREKA and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Now, for the first time, these two companies join forces for a new imprint designed to change the face of science fiction entertainment. In THE STRANDED, the first Virgin/SciFi book, five ordinary people must face a terrifying question: What if your entire world—your childhood, your family, all your memories—was a lie? For The Stranded, it's true; they're all, secretly, from another world. And now a deadly, otherworldly force has returned to try and kill them, operating through a twisted, altered human called Janus. Their only hope: Tamree, a dark, mysterious woman sent to Earth as their protector. One by one, Tamree must awaken the buried memories of The Stranded—along with their powerful, unique psychic and physical abilities. But even if they can defeat Janus, they must also deal with a deadly threat from one of their own.

    THE STRANDED is created by acclaimed comics writer and novelist Mike Carey (X-MEN, LUCIFER, The Devil You Know). The first issue features alternate covers by Marc Silvestri (WITCHBLADE, X-MEN) and Greg Horn (SPIDER-MAN, X-BOX MAGAZINE, ELEKTRA).

    With THE STRANDED, Virgin and SciFi take a giant leap into the future. Join us -- the best is yet to come!
