    BLOOD+ VOLUME 3 GN

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Asuka Katsura
    Pencils: Asuka Katsura
    Covers: Asuka Katsura

    This third, pivotal volume reveals one of the biggest secrets in the Blood+ mythos-but you'll have to wade through plenty of violence, betrayal, and sacrifice before you get there. Hagi shows just how resilient he can be, Kai is as stubborn and reckless as ever, and confused, sweet Riku is once again in the wrong place at the wrong time. Speaking of time, this volume also features a longer flashback sequence that takes us to the 1800's and another violent episode in Saya's curious, catastrophic life! A brutal skirmish, eye-popping gore, and some enlightening flashbacks open this central volume to the Blood+ manga series, as Saya faces her brutal tormentor Charles head on.

    * Asuka Katsura's Blood+ manga series is the official adaptation and companion to the popular Production I.G/Aniplex anime series that became a hit on Adult Swim.

A MySpace Dark Horse Presents discovery, Rebecca Sugar, delves into the life and times of Dr. Alloy who builds a device that should make life easier on his fellow inmates.

    OH MY GODDESS VOLUME 30 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kosuke Fujishima

    As powerful (and wrathful) as Belldandy's older sister Urd is, what's the real reason she never became a Goddess First Class? Now, in order to finally achieve that exalted state, Urd must fulfill a challenge decreed by Peorth-give Keiichi a certain amount of happiness! That sounds great . . . until you realize that with Urd, giving a certain amount of happiness is going to mean inflicting a great amount of misery first!

    * Oh My Goddess! inspired two recent anime TV series from Media Blasters and ADV Films, as well as the import "Belldandy" figure from Kotobukiya.

    Covers: Ben Templesmith

    Acclaimed writer/artist Ben Templesmith (Wormwood Gentleman Corpse) creates his newest horrific comic book right here! In the debut issue of Welcome to Hoxford, Raymond Delgado isn’t welcome at all. Rather, he’s the newest inmate at the Hoxford Correctional Facility and Mental Institution. He has no hope of release, parole, rehabilitation, or decent conversation. On a good day, he'll tell you he's Zeus and only bite your arm off. Literally. On a bad day, you won't have time to scream to the prison guard for help. But Dr Jessica Ainley, his doctor for five years, wants to help Ray and can't understand why the newly privatized, corporately run prison, won't give her access to her patients. And why are people always transferred into Hoxford, but no records show anyone ever transferring back out…?

    The superstar team of Warren Ellis and Simone Bianchi take the X-Men to the "Second Stage!"

    "Messiah Complex" pulled the X-Men team together, "Divided We Stand" tore them apart. Now the X-Men are back to business -- with a new look, a new base of operations, and a mystery to solve that will take them into previously uncharted territory and test them to their core. It all starts on a spaceship hovering 300 hundred feet above the twisted wreckage of Chaparanga Beach. Its sole inhabitant: the mysterious Subject X. Five minutes -- just five minutes is all he needs, all he’s asking for.

    Can the X-Men afford to give it to him?
