    H.G. WELLS' THE WAR OF THE WORLDS HC

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writer: Ian Edginton
    Artist: D'Israeli

    From the pen of legendary science fiction author and futurist, H. G. Wells …

    Dark Horse Comics is proud to present Ian Edginton and D'Israeli's adaptation of the most famous science fiction novel of all time-The War of the Worlds!

    In the closing years of the nineteenth century, the genteel tranquility of Victorian England is shattered by the arrival of an invasion force from the red planet-Mars! Methodical and merciless, the Martians are intent on nothing less than the conquest and subjugation of the human race.

    Told from the point of view of an ordinary man caught up in the carnage and chaos, we witness firsthand how the then-greatest empire in the world is brought to its knees by the Martians'cool alien intellect and the implacable heat ray!

    On the run and desperate to clear his name, fugitive Padawan Zayne Carrick guides his ragtag crew of scoundrels toward a treacherous asteroid moon, returning to the site of a significant moment in his Jedi training and to what he hopes will reveal the reason the entire Republic seems out to get him.

    USAGI YOJIMBO #93

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writer: Stan Sakai
    Artist: Stan Sakai
    Cover Artist: Stan Sakai

    World-renowned storyteller Stan Sakai explores a very important part of Japanese culture in this special issue of Usagi Yojimbo. After an eventful stay, the time has come for Usagi to continue his wandering travels and bid farewell to the Geishu Province. Before he goes, he and Tomoe will first partake in the chanoyu-the formal tea ceremony. But is there something besides tea brewing between the two of them? Meanwhile, unbeknownst to either of the pair, arrangements are being made for Tomoe's marriage.

    This unusual issue explores the stylized, spiritual event of the tea ceremony, which epitomizes the feeling of Zen. Sakai's attention to the historical details of Usagi's feudal environment is a hallmark of the series, and this focus is highlighted this month in "Chanoyu"!

    CHECKMATE #1

    Publisher:
    DC Comics
    Writer: Greg Rucka
    Artist: Jesus Saiz
    Cover Artist: Lee Bermejo

    Checkmate holds the line. Cross it — and they'll take you off the board. Permanently.

    In this thrilling new ongoing series, the team behind the blockbuster OMAC PROJECT — writer Greg Rucka and artist Jesus Saiz — returns with a different spy agency for a different world. Infinite Crisis has changed the DCU, and Checkmate has shaped its hard-learned lessons into a new game plan.

    In Checkmate, it's all about the balance of power. Between Black and White; between human and metahuman; and between the familiar faces who have become its new Kings and Queens. It's also about the propaganda wars, black ops combat, and political manuevering that fuel Checkmate's critical missions — missions that take a grueling toll on the agents' day-to-day lives.

    First, however, they must prove their right to exist — to the U.N. And they only have hours to do it in this breathtaking first issue!

    ZOOM SUIT #1 (of 4)

    Writer: John Taddeo
    Artist: Billy Dallas Patton
    Cover Artist: Billy Dallas Patton, Bob Layton (plus Incentive), Tucci, Bart Sears (Incentive), Gene Colan (Incentive), Jim Starlin (Incentive)

    An alien craft crash lands in Roswell, New Mexico, and the reports are heard around the world. Fast forward 60 years. The suit is stolen by turncoat NSA Agent Simon Bane. In a theft attempt reminiscent of DB Cooper, Simon leaps from an Army chopper at 8,000 feet and begins to don the Zoom Suit. However, he has made a deadly error: Aliens are small! The suit doesn’t fit! Simon and the suit fall helplessly to earth at terminal velocity. On Earth, thirteen year old Myles Mason is bummed about not being able to afford a Halloween costume, when suddenly, from the sky, alien armor crashes to Earth just a few feet behind him.
