    Publisher:
    BOOM! Studios
    Writers: Dan Abnett, Ian Edginton
    Pencils: Daniel Lapham
    Covers: Daniel Lapham

    Part 1 of 5
    In this series, we focus on the Inquisitors of Warhammer 40,000. The most insidious and dangerous threat in the 41st Millennium is the one you cannot see. It is this thought that spawned the Inquisition, an organization devoted

    to rooting out traitors, heretics, mutants and aliens that undermine Humanity. They scour the Imperium searching for threats without, and within. Immediately following the events of WARHAMMER 40,000: DAMNATION CRUSADE, Inquisitor Delius Alastor is dispatched to investigate why a pair of dormant Titans has gone undetected beneath the city of Carrion Gulf? After a mission that saw his retinue slaughtered and left him terribly scarred at the hands of a Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marine, Alastor is stricken with

    nightmares - but knows he cannot yield to the fear. The eyes of the Inquisition are on him, curious as to how deep his wounds truly go. Is Alastor capable of meeting what lurks beneath Carrion Gulf? Warhammer 40,000 novelist Dan

    Abnett, multiple Eisner Award-nominee Ian Edginton, and rising star artist Daniel Lapham bring you another tale of savage Warhammer 40,000 action.

    BERSERK VOLUME 24 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kentaro Miura

    Desperate to find a sanctuary where his lover, Casca, will be safe from the demons drawn to her Brand of Sacrifice, Guts the Black Swordsman pushes his motley band of followers onward towards fairy Puck's homeland, Elfhelm. With new allies who make their home in a mystically guarded woodland paradise, Guts' goal seems within reach, but danger lurks in the shadows of even the most dazzling utopias, and even fairy witchery may not protect the wondrous kingdom from an army of marauding, murderous trolls!

    Created by Kentaro Miura, Berserk is a runaway manga locomotive, a crashing colossus of teeth-rattling action, spine-chilling horror, and taboo-breaking humor that fires the boilers of its devoted devotees and just fires the rest. Ashes to ashes!

    * Each volume comes shrink-wrapped and carries an 18+ content advisory.

    STARFALL PREVIEW BOOK

    Publisher:
    Image Comics/Top Cow
    Writers: Randy Queen
    Pencils:
    Covers:

    “The high concept of the series is this: Space pirates crash land on an uncharted jungle planet and unknowingly unleash a degenerative nanobot technology that turns the local dinosaur and cannibal populace into raging zombies!” explained Queen. “The story’s main protagonist is Sierra Starfall, a female Flash Gordon/Tarzan type character who’s hotwired with Dragon DNA and over 100 years old, despite not looking a day over 25. Sierra is legendary and considered by many to be the Galaxy’s Greatest Warrior. She is the commander of a fiercely loyal rogues gallery of Alien Mercs, who have survived and vanquished many perils. This time they won’t.” -- “We hope fans will join us on this new voyage, and will embrace Sierra Starfall as their own, because she is created specifically for them,” Queen concluded. -- If you like Star Wars, Alien Legion, Micronauts, Flash Gordon, Aliens, Tarzan, and King Kong, then this new sci-fi-horror title is right up your alley. Be sure to pick up the preview book at the Top Cow booth at San Diego Comic-Con July 24-27! More information on Randy Queen and his projects can be found at starfallcomic.com

Oh no, Herc, not before the Hulk gets his ribbon! It’s two dogs with five heads between them, and all the action you can handle.

The first sixteen pages of the story will be available starting July 24 at HBO, with new installations every Wednesday. The book also contains eight pages of bonus material that includes an interview with Alan Ball.

    Covers: Stjepan Sejic, Dale Keown (Incentive), Luke Ross

    Part 1 of 3
    In 2007, Top Cow unleashed First Born, hailed by critics as “a quality mini-series,” “required reading” and “an epic adventure.” That storyline changed the Top Cow Universe forever. But that was just the beginning.

    Broken Trinity brings together the Witchblade, The Darkness and The Angelus once more, but this time the stakes are even higher as a new artifact is discovered, forever upsetting the balance of power. By the conclusion of the crossover, a major new player will be introduced into the Top Cow Universe, while at least one established character will be gone forever. The team of Marz and Sejic that dazzled you with First Born and their ongoing adventures on Witchblade is back to change the face of the Top Cow Universe one more time.

    Also featuring part one of a stunning triptych variant cover by Dale Keown (Pitt).

    Broken Trinity #1 kicks off a three-issue limited series, augmented by three, stand-alone, tie-in issues for Witchblade, The Darkness and The Angelus.
