    Covers Mike Mignola
    Colorists: Dave Stewart

    Something deadly is loose in the halls of the B.P.R.D.!
    The B.P.R.D. will need all of its new resources--from Johann's new body to Panya, the team's newest (or maybe oldest) member--to handle the deadly forces that have wormed their way into the heart of the headquarters, as the line blurs between the hunters of the supernatural and their prey.

    Written by John Arcudi (JLA, Doom Patrol) and Hellboy and B.P.R.D. creator Mike Mignola, and drawn by acclaimed series artist Guy Davis (Sandman Mystery Theatre, Nevermen), Killing Ground returns the B.P.R.D. to its roots in visceral supernatural horror that will leave the Bureau forever altered.

    * A direct follow-up to the events in B.P.R.D.: Garden of Souls.

    * Daimio's secret revealed!

    THE COMPLETE GREEN LAMA FEATURING THE ART OF MAC RABOY HC

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics

    Chanting "Om Mani Padme Hum," the wealthy Jethro Dumont transformed into the Green Lama-a flying freedom fighter made famous in comics by the distinguished and imaginative artist Mac Raboy (Captain Marvel Jr., Flash Gordon). A unique 1940s Buddhist superhero, the Green Lama used special powers gained in a pilgrimage to Tibet to fight master criminals, monstrous dictators, and inequality across the globe. He made his debut in April 1940 in the pulp fiction anthology Double Detective, but he is most well known in his comic book incarnation-especially the stories drawn by Raboy in the eight-issue Green Lama series. Dark Horse Archives presents the entire Green Lama run in two high-quality hardcovers, starting with these first four issues. In addition to Raboy's classic covers and stories, these issues contain entertaining and adventurous bonus stories following the adventures of Lieutenant Hercules, Rick Masters, Angus McErc, and others!

    * Our first volume also features an introduction by free speech activist and patron saint of comics collecting Chuck Rozanski!

    * Long-deserving archival treatment, these enchanting, historic Golden Age tales are now available to fans who can't spend thousands of dollars on original issues!

Join a group of friends, with the stern Miss Finch in tow, as they enter musty caverns for a subterranean circus spectacle called "The Theatre of Night's Dreaming." Come inside, get out of the pounding rain, and witness this strange world of vampires, ringmasters, illusions, and the Cabinet of Wishes Fulfill'd.

    The Arthurian legend as retold in the American Old West, with all of its great symbolism, magic and spirit of adventure. The Knights of the Round Table are all gunslingers bound by a code of honor to protect the weak and defend the innocent until they are undone from within by their own moral corruption. In this tale, Caliber itself is a tattooed six-gun, given to Arthur by the Indians and imbued with supernatural power. The secret of the gun is that it is never loaded with bullets, but when a man with Justice on his side is holding it, it can fire. When it does, it fires Thunder itself and never misses.

    Part 1 of 5
    Fourteen hundred years ago, a tormented soul walked the earth that was neither man nor god. Hercules was the powerful son of the god king Zeus, for this he received nothing but suffering his entire life. After twelve arduous labors and the loss of his family, this dark, world-weary soul turned his back on the gods finding his only solace in bloody battle. Over the years he warmed to the company of six similar souls, their only bond being their love of fighting and presence of death. These men and woman never question where they go to fight or why or whom, just how much they will be paid. Now the King of Thrace has hired these mercenaries to train his men to become the greatest army of all time. It is time for this bunch of lost souls to finally have their eyes opened to how far they have fallen when they must train an army to become as ruthless and blood thirsty as their reputation has become.

    MOME VOLUME 11 SPRING 2008 TP

    Publisher:
    Fantagraphics
    Editors: Gary Groth, Eric Reynolds

    Since its inception in 2005, MOME has bridged the gap between the contemporary graphic novel scene and the current cutting-edge literary scene, serving as a perfect sampler of today's best young graphic novelists in a quarterly format that sits as handsomely on the newsstand alongside journals like McSweeney's and Paris Review as it does in the graphic novels section.

    Vol. 11 of the popular series welcomes Killoffer, the exciting French cartoonist whose work has previously only been seen in the acclaimed collection, 176 Apparitions of Killoffer, as well as newcomer Jon Vermilyea. Plus, several other surprises from some of the best new talent in comics.

    MOME is an accessible, reasonably priced quarterly running approximately 120 pages per volume, mostly in color, and spotlighting the most exciting new storytellers in comics along with special surprises. MOME is quickly earning a reputation as one of the premier literary anthologies on the shelves, and the only one comprised almost entirely of comics.
