    NEXUS ARCHIVES VOLUME 4 HC

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Mike Mignola
    Pencils: Cary Nord
    Cover: Tony Harris
    Colorist: Dave Stewart

    Every once in a while a creation appears that both reinvents and epitomizes its genre. 1981 marked the beginning of such an event with the first issue of Nexus, a playful adventure series that paid homage to the best of classic science fiction while introducing an unforgettable antihero. Countless readers around the world followed his action-packed exploits over the next two decades, visiting alien realms and fascinating creatures through the wit and verve of his youthful creators.

    Dark Horse invites you to relive the series that defined the careers of both Steve Rude and Mike Baron, collected in a hardcover format for the first time. In this volume, Sundra discovers the source of Nexus' powers and the cause of his headaches-the Merk is revealed! Space pirates pillage Ylum's orbital community, and the Sovs declare war, but Nexus is without his powers . . . so the Heads create the most devastating weapon in the galaxy.

    REX MUNDI #1

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Arvid Nelson
    Pencils: Juan Ferreyra
    Cover: J.H. Williams III

    In a Paris where magic is real and the Catholic Church never lost its political power, one man's quest to solve a murder may lead him to the Holy Grail itself!

    Doctor Julien Saunière continues his investigation into the theft of a mysterious medieval scroll, only dimly aware of the forces tugging him to the doorstep of the powerful Duke of Lorraine. Lorraine wants to provoke a massive, globe-spanning war that will soak the world in blood-but why? The answer to that question, a deadly confrontation in the ancient catacombs beneath Paris, and a blasphemous revelation about Judas, Christ's betrayer, all await Julien in this volume of the critically acclaimed series Rex Mundi!

    DEADMAN #1

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Vertigo Comics
    Writers: Bruce Jones
    Pencils: John Watkiss
    Cover: John Watkiss

    The superstar veteran team of fan-favorite writer Bruce Jones (NIGHTWING, THE WARLORD) and innovative artist John Watkiss (SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, TRIGGER) explores the mysteries of life — and love — after death in this original re-imagining of the classic DC character. Combining over-the-top action and brain-tingling speculation, this is Deadman as only Vertigo could deliver in an ongoing series about sex and string theory; parapsychology and political conspiracy; where the "wonder years" and the afterlife are just two dimensions of the same reality.

    Brandon Cayce is cocky young pilot for a major airline who likes to fly right and party all night. With his older brother Scott at the controls, Brandon is "deadheading" a free flight with a hangover that won't quit. Without warning, Scott deliberately crashes the plane into a downtown London skyscraper. Brandon is killed in a horrifying wreck, along with everyone on board.

    And his day only gets worse from there.

    To survive his own demise, Brandon must confront these riddles head-on, until he realizes that the person with the answers may be his late brother's own wife — a woman he once loved himself. And when he encounters her again, he finds that his love for her is one part of himself that will never die.

    THE BOYS #1

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Wildstorm
    Writers: Garth Ennis
    Pencils: Darick Robertson
    Cover: Darick Robertson

    Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), co-creators of two of the most thought-provoking comics of the last decade, introduce their first original collaboration for a new monthly series: THE BOYS — a dark, twisted look at super powers, super-people, and the men and women who make sure the world's "heroes" never go too far.

    With a quarter-million super-powered beings in the world, someone's got to watch what's going on beneath all those masks and capes. In a U.S.A. uncomfortably like our own, that task falls to The Boys, a government-funded group of operatives dedicated to keeping the "supes" in line.

    "VICIOUS CYCLE" Part 2 of 6
    Johnny Blaze has escaped from Hell - but unfortunately, he wasn’t alone: Lucifer has once again played Johnny for a fool and used him to hitch a ride onto the mortal plane. The Ghost Rider must now track down Lucifer and send him back to where he came from before the Devil succeeds in creating a new Hell... here on earth. This is no small task, but it is further complicated by both the fact that Lucifer hides behind many faces and that there are those - one very strange man, in particular - who would prefer Ghost Rider cease his mission immediately... or else.
