    Pencils: Christian Gossett
    Covers: Christian Gossett
    Colorists: Emil Petrinic

    For centuries, a mysterious order of priests jealously guarded the secret of the Bond of Saint Marcel: an occult ritual that enabled priests of the Order to enslave vampires and use them as unwilling soldiers against their own kind. When 16-year-old Katherine Johnstone inherits an ancient family signet ring she is swept into a world of fatal secrets and a centuries-old quest for vengeance. But with the ring, Kat has also inherited the power to command a vampire, and he may be her only hope of survival. Art by five-time Eisner nominee Christian Gossett (Red Star).

    GRENDEL: GOD & THE DEVIL TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Matt Wagner

    In the centuries since the mask of Grendel was last seen, humanity's survived a third World War, the fall of Western Civilization, and the rise of an all-powerful church state. But when the depraved Pope Innocent XLII begins construction of a new church tower hiding a powerful and deadly secret, two men will rise against the church's corruption. One is Orion Assante, a man determined to expose the Pope for who he really is. The other is a mysterious figure wearing the all-too-familiar face of Grendel!

    Grendel: God and the Devil masterfully interweaves sanity with madness, churches with corporations, and good with evil in one of the most stunning and prophetic stories of modern comics.

    * Matt Wagner's magnum opus: never before collected!

    * Featuring the eye-popping art that launched John K. Snyder III into artistic stardom!

    Pencils: Michel Lacombe
    Covers: Adi Granov

    Special double-sized issue featuring the Uncanny X-Men! Meanwhile, back in the present . . . In the aftermath of the “Messiah Complex” war, Cyclops took a leap of faith and allowed his son Cable to disappear into the time stream with the first new mutant birth since “M” day -- and the future of the dwindling mutant population -- tucked under his arm. Weeks later, he still waits for a sign, however small, that he made the right decision. With evidence pointing to the fact that Bishop has jumped into the timestream and is hot on Cable’s trail, the X-Men’s unquestioned leader is about to make one final power move to protect the fate of mutantkind – one that he might come to regret.

    "BAD NIGHT", Part 1 of 4
    A woman in trouble, friends on the run from cops and mobsters, and a secret no one is prepared to face!

    All this and more await readers in the beginning of a hard-hitting new noir tale “Bad Night” Part 1 of 4, as CRIMINAL’s new expanded format keeps the hits coming!

    Five years ago, Jake was a happy family man, long-retired from the life of crime he grew up in, and then the police made him the prime suspect in a horrible crime and ripped his life apart. Now, years later, Jake is less than a shadow of his former self, a hopeless insomniac who walks the city streets at night. But one night, he walks into the wrong place at the right time, and his whole life changes again… For the better or the worse, is the question.

    And on top of this longer-than-usual length main story, CRIMINAL now features an expanded back-pages section, as well – with articles by Brubaker and other top crime writers, from novelists to screenwriters to comic writers. These noir articles have become a popular piece of the CRIMINAL package, and are something that can only be found in the comics, not in any collections.

    So don’t miss out on the start of a new story arc in the most acclaimed crime comic on the stands!

    Letters: Cory Petit

    Wolverine’s hard to kill, sure—but if one guy knows how to do it…it’s WOLVERINE himself! X-FORCE co-writer Christopher Yost and superstar Koi Turnbull have all the answers as Wolverine faces down NANNY and ORPHAN-MAKER and lets former NEW X-MEN member TRANCE in on all his secrets… And in a special bonus tale, TELLOS writer Todd Dezago and NEWUNIVERSAL’s Steve Kurth send Logan to the Arctic Circle, and show us that there’s always one more way to die…
