    CANNON GOD EXAXXION: STAGE 5 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writer: Kenichi Sonoda
    Interior Artist: Kenichi Sonoda
    Cover Artist: Kenichi Sonoda

    Life has started to look up for Hoichi Kano. Sure, he's Earth's only hope of resisting an insidious alien colonization-slash-invasion. Sure, he's had to deal with the fact that every time he uses his super-powered gunsuit or the mighty robot Exaxxion to fight the aliens he puts the lives of everyone he loves in danger. But every high school student has issues, right? Now, Hoichi is kicking butt and taking names, and it looks like he has the Riofaldians on the run. He's got the girl, the guns, and his father-a depraved, eccentric genius who commands a war room full of voluptuous androids-on his side. What more could a hero need? But in the shadow of a tenuous cease-fire a battle still rages, with both sides desperate to win the support of the masses-both Human and Riofaldian alike! With so much propagandized mud being slung, will anyone know who the true enemies are at the end of the day? And will anyone notice just how close the Riofaldians are to breaking through the Kano family's defenses?

    DE:TALES VOLUME 1 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Fabio Moon, Gabriel Bá
    Interior Artists: Fabio Moon, Gabriel Bá
    Cover Artists: Fabio Moon, Gabriel Bá

    Fabio Moon and Gabriel Bá are Brazilian twins who share an award-winning talent for comics and an abiding love of the medium. Following in the wake of brothers Gilbert & Jaime Hernandez and Tomer & Asaf Hanuka, Moon & Bá bring their considerable skills to Dark Horse in De:Tales, their first major American release!

    This collection of short stories features the pair working together, in tandem, or separately-trading off on the roles of writing and illustrating, sharing those roles, or flying solo. Brimming with all the details of human life, their charming tales move from the urban reality of their home in São Paulo to the magical realism of their Latin American background, living up to the twins' critical acclaim and proving that they are a talented pair to watch out for.

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writer: Kosuke Fujishima
    Interior Artist: Kosuke Fujishima
    Cover Artist: Kosuke Fujishima

    Ever since a cosmic phone call brought Belldandy, Urd, and Skuld-a trio of literal young goddesses-to live in college student Keiichi's residence, his personal life has been turned upside down, sideways, and sometimes even into strange dimensions!

    No sooner has Urd's mother left, than Keiichi and Megumi's father shows up! But whatever you do, don't call him that. It's just "Keima-san." Try to show him respect by saying "Father," and he'll smack you upside the head. You see, he simply wants to be treated as an individual. Also, if you're a woman, don't approach any closer than one meter to Keima-san-because he'll run away. Only his wife is ever permitted that close. Well then, what in the world must Mrs. Morisato be like? Don't call "Mother" that either-because you're about to meet her too!
