    With Buffy incapacitated, Amy the witch has taken the opportunity to-get this-lay siege with an army of the undead. Willow takes her on in a witches' battle royal as hundreds of Slayers defend their Scottish citadel, but without the kiss of true love, Buffy will be out of commission indefinitely-with an unwelcome familiar face, and an image you won't soon forget.

    From masters of horror Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson comes the most anticipated and monster-filled comics series of the year, City of Others.

    When Stosh Bludowski awakes from the nightmare of the last twenty-four hours, his life will be forever changed. It's not like Blud--a ruthless hit man--hasn't known darkness before, but awakening to the reality that the world is filled with zombies and vampires isn't the easiest thing to swallow. Now that he's in the midst of a family of vampires ("others," as they prefer to be called), and they're under attack by an invading army of rampaging zombies, Blud needs to choose a side, and doing so will seal his fate forever.

    EDEN: IT'S AN ENDLESS WORLD VOLUME 7 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Hiroki Endo

    Delving into the drug cartel politics of South America's post-pandemic future, Hiroki Endo (Tanpenshu) offers up the most complex volume of Eden yet. Elijah initiates a shaky alliance with the Automater, a half-cyborg female crime boss, in order to glean more information about Pedro, the sadistic gangster who mutilated one of Elijah's friends. In a compelling twist, we find out about Pedro's past, his admirable commitment to his brother, and the intricate plan that he hatches in an attempt to save the life of another loved one. As rival gangs fight for power in post-apocalyptic cities, Endo delivers moments of brutal torture, shifting alliances, and poignant reflection, along with his trademark flashes of unexpected violence.

    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kenichi Sonoda

    Rally Vincent and Minnie-May Hopkins are two regular American girls. Regular American girls who own a gun shop, and might have dabbled in prostituion, respectively. And who happen to be a crack shot and an explosives expert, respectively.

    These might be odd skills for American girls, but these two happen to be Chicago's top bounty hunters. Rally can shoot the trigger off a gun from a good distance, and May generally wreaks havoc with explosions and cuteness. And together, with some very useful friends and associates, they make up the Gunsmith Cats.

    "Burst" finds our ladies back at work, back in action, and . . . back in trouble. Now presented in the favored Japanese, right-to-left format, Gunsmith Cats: "Burst" aims to please.

    A brand new story arc begins, launching a captivating tale of power, prejudice, and a past that can no longer be outrun!

    When Camper, the senile owner of the Last Resort, falls frighteningly ill, his young protector Jarael will risk everything to try and save him, even if that means seeking a cure on Arkania, a homeworld she has never seen, where genetic "offshoots" like her and Camper are despised, even criminalized. Yet, once on Arkania, Jarael's troubles will run more than skin deep, for if her intentions are revealed, powerful forces that have been hunting Camper for years will stop at nothing to reclaim the elderly refugee-and the terrible secret he carries within him!

    Life in the Old Republic takes a troubling turn in "Nights of Anger," a perfect jumping on point for anyone who hasn't taken the plunge into one of the most thrilling comics in the galaxy!

    Publisher:
    IDW Publishing
    Writers: Ashley Wood, T.P. Louise, Chris Ryall
    Pencils: Ashley Woods
    Covers: Ashley Woods

    What is D'Airain Aventure about, you ask? It's about life and love and hate and death and magic and mystery and all of these things and none of these things, all at once. It's the kind of comic that needs to be experienced rather than defined. All of which would sound overly grandiose if it wasn't being applied to a comic that's produced by visionary creator Ashley Wood. Once again featuring 32 pages of story and art by Ash (aided and abetted by T. P. Louise, and Chris Ryall), including extra strips, two covers, and much more that's got to be seen to be believed.
