This leads to a whirlwind trek from Rome to Zurich in pursuit of the mysterious “Green Man” and his minions. Along the way Archie and friends will befuddle the Italian police, trash a movie set, stowaway on a jet, frustrate the Zurich police, storm a fortress, confound half the criminal underworld – and somehow still come off as good ambassadors of the United States! Don’t miss this hysterical, fast-paced, action-packed salute to super-spy films everywhere, as Archie finally unravels the Green Man’s plans and discovers a plot that could bring Europe to its knees (and imagine how much that will hurt)!

    Publisher:
    BOOM! Studios
    Writers: J.M. DeMatteis, Keith Giffen
    Pencils: Joe Abraham
    Covers: Joe Abraham

    More critically acclaimed bwah-ha-ha hilarity from one of comics' best selling writing teams! Captain Valor is trapped on a parallel world where his doppelganger is a slacked named Milo-and really isn't much help at all against the Captain's archvillian Calignous, the alternate-world version of Milo's girlfriend, Stephie, who's followed Captain Valor to this Earth to wreak havoc. Confused? It gets crazier. And deadlier. HERO SQUARED VOLUME TWO is an adventure-filled laugh fest that GIffen and DeMatteis consider their finest work together to date (their previous "finest work" involved an army of mutated penguins)!

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Hiroaki Samura

    The time for reconnaissance, planning, and waiting is over! Rin and Döa, desperate to be reunited with their friends (or even reassured that they're alive), take their first bold steps in penetrating Edo Castle's defenses and foiling Kagimura's foul "immortality" experiments! A trip to an old doctor, a chance encounter with a high-strung peasant, and an appearance by a strange, all-new Itto-ryü warrior combine to make this volume an important series of encounters in persistent Rin's quest to find Manji and Isaku--and in her own growth as a warrior! The "Badger Hole" is a dank passageway that leads to an underground tunnel system beneath Edo Castle.

    * Collects Issues #127 to #131 of Blade of the Immortal.

    Legendary artist Herb Trimpe (The Incredible Hulk) joins regular B.P.R.D. writer John Arcudi and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola for the first of four one-shots which pick up from the March-April B.P.R.D. feature on MySpace/Dark Horse Presents. These stories are set before the events of B.P.R.D.: The Black Flame, chronicling the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense's fight against the frog monsters.

    As the frog cult spreads across America, Roger the Homunculus returns to the site of the B.P.R.D.'s first clash with the frog creatures--the ruins of Cavendish Hall, where Hellboy, Abe, and Liz first encountered both the frogs and Rasputin (Hellboy: Seed of Destruction)--to track down the final pieces of the puzzle of the Cavendish family.

    Cavendish family puzzle solved!

    LADY PENDRAGON: PILOT SEASON #1

    Publisher:
    Image Comics/Top Cow
    Writers: Matt Hawkins
    Pencils: ERU

    A tale spanning two eras: In the present day a circle of stones is discovered on Mars featuring a cache of encased Latin scrolls and an elegant sword. Jennifer Drake was famed for turning her vivid dreams into best selling historical fiction. Now experts translate the scrolls and find they match passages from her novels. In the Dark Ages, following the death of King Arthur and his Knights, Guinevere took Excalibur and attempted to use it to prevent a Saxon invasion and heal the fractured land. Two stories intertwine, one of a fractious past and the end of magic, the other of a hopeful present and its return.
