    Pencils: Roger Robinson
    Covers Roger Robinson

    The new world was an unspoiled frontier perfect for colonization, a virtual paradise of boundless beauty and limitless resources, untouched by human hands . . . but not untouched, as the unsuspecting colonists soon discovered. Now marooned on a planet infested with the deadliest Alien species ever encountered, the colonists learn firsthand the Law of the Jungle: adapt or become extinct. And a little helping hand couldn't hurt, inexplicably provided by the selfsame Predators who destroyed the colonists' ship and made them prisoners in paradise. Are these extraterrestrial hunters actually showing sympathy for the humans' plight, or do they have something even more monstrous in mind?

    * Following the events of 2004's Thrill of the Hunt, Alien vs. Predator 2: Civilized Beasts again teams fan-favorite writer Mike Kennedy (Lone Wolf 2100) and artist Roger Robinson (Gotham Nights) in an action-packed battle royale to determine the heavyweight championship of the galaxy!

    * Just in time for the anticipated release of the film Alien vs. Predator 2, coming December 2007!

With his partner sliced to oblivion and a sweet little Satanic bundle of baby girl in his arms, Cal's got to think fast or he and his new charge will be sharing Mo'Lock's bloody fate

    HARLAN ELLISON'S WATCHING TP (Novel)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics/M Press Books
    By: Harlan Ellison

    Harlan Ellison’s Watching documents twenty-five years of this award-winning author’s writings on his demented obsession with motion pictures. Includes over fifty essays!

    Most overviews of film are written from some high, sunlit mountaintop. In this first collection of Harlan Ellison’s cinema criticism (with expanded, never-before-collected articles as well as an essay written especially for this volume) come from the darkened interiors of a thousand movie houses where this most peculiar of all Observers of the Passing Scene has spent much of his life. The view is guaranteed to make you grind your teeth in anger, nod your head in blessed agreement, and open your eyes in a manner of judging films that is definitely not plebeian. Harlan Ellison’s love affair with movies is obvious. As an essayist, he has no equal; as a film critic he has no friends. Take care.

    But how could the WildStorm Universe stand on the brink of Armageddon? Why aren't the all-seeing Authority watching over things? Where is mighty Majestic to save the day? Wouldn't the Wildcats put an end to any final conflict before it even began? And how does a long-forgotten face from WildStorm's troubled past hold all the answers to preventing a nightmarish future of Biblical proportions?

    KAPUT AND ZOSKY GN

    Publisher:
    First Second
    By: Lewis Trondheim

    Kaput and Zösky are the most mayhem-inducing, the most screams-of-terror-provoking, the most rotten, ruthless aliens in the entire galaxy. And they have the biggest weapons, too!

    So why can't they ever be the first across the finish line? They’re even losing at hopscotch!

    On one planet the natives surrender to Kaput and Zösky without a fight — where's the fun in that? On another, Kaput finds that he's won the lottery — and the planet comes along with it! He doesn't even have to shoot anyone! Mayhem and hilarity abound in these thirteen stories told with bright, cartoony art by Lewis Trondheim.

    Covers: Sean Phillips

    It’s the second of three standalone stories, as CRIMINAL’s new expanded format keeps the hits coming!

    In previous arcs of Criminal we’ve met the man who killed him, and we met his only surviving son… now meet TEEG LAWLESS, thief, murderer, and all around bad mother-#@$%er. Fresh from two tours in Vietnam, Teeg arrives home in 1972 carrying the baggage of war, a drug habit, and an unpaid debt to a local mob boss that’s now long overdue. *“Before the Living End”* tells how he goes about finding a way out of his problems and back into the life of crime.

    And on top of this longer-than-usual length main story, CRIMINAL now features an *expanded* back-pages section, as well – with articles by Brubaker and other top crime writers, from novelists to screenwriters to comic writers. These noir articles have become a popular piece of the CRIMINAL package, and are something that can only be found in the comics, not in any collections.

    So don’t miss out on this second *standalone* issue of the most acclaimed crime comic on the stands!

    As tales of the Citrusville bog-monster continue to spread, two college-aged documentary filmmakers arrive in the swamps, accompanied by their nubile girlfriends, determined to sort fact from fiction. But, unfortunately for them, the two filmmakers are unaware that the Man-Thing isn't the ONLY monster in the swamps -- that there is, in fact, a tribe of cannibalistic half-breeds who would love nothing more than to hunt and eat a van-load of fresh meat. The MAX re-telling of Man-Thing's origin continues this issue, narrated by Digger, and featuring the return of...Ellen Brandt?

But blood must pay for blood, and Dunk has sworn his sword to Ser Eustace regardless of his past transgressions. Now, Dunk must do battle with the Red Widow’s castellan, Ser Lucas Inchfield, as the Sworn Sword rushes toward its bone crushing conclusion in classic George R.R. Martin style.

    In 1946, an alien virus was unleashed that changed the world forever, and people who were affected made their draw. Most drew the Black Queen and died horribly. Almost everyone who survived drew the Joker, and became deformed, broken, hated and feared. But a handful drew the Ace, and gained super powers that allowed them to achieve almost anything the mind can conceive – both in dreams and in nightmares.

    Sixty years later, an ace named Croyd Crenson, better known as "The Sleeper," is framed for the murder of a young nurse in Jokertown. And as it turns out, the killer is another ace, with the ability to walk through walls!

    Meanwhile a group of teenagers in Colorado accidentally activate the dormant Wild Card Virus, causing the entire town of Whiteoak to experience the effects of the virus. Most draw the Black Queen, but emergency crews will find themselves faced with two people who have drawn the ace…

    Set in the world of the long-running series of popular Wild Card novels edited by George R. R. Martin, Wild Cards: The Hard Call is written by Daniel Abraham (author of The Long Price Quartet and the Nebula nominated short story Flat Diane) with art by Eric Battle (DC's Tales of the Unexpected and Batman) Featuring beloved characters from the original stories, this six issue limited series also introduces us to an entirely new generation of aces and jokers sure to change the Wild Card universe forever!
