    THE FRESHMAN YEAR SAGA GETS IN FULL SWING THIS ISSUE!

    "FRESHMAN YEAR", Part 2 of 5
    In the tradition of “Batman: Year One,” “Superman: The Man of Steel” and the Marvel Ultimates comes the biggest Archie Comics event since the “Love Showdown!” The first full-length issue of the “Freshman Year” saga finds Archie and his friends just starting the fall semester. Having survived a summer that saw the departure of Jughead and bickering parents, the gang arrives at high school… to find elementary school Principal Mr. Weatherbee has now become the high school Principal! But it’s not just about reunions at Riverdale High. Archie also makes a new friend in Pencilneck G., although he prefers his more laid-back buddy Jughead. He also makes some new enemies in Jared McGerk and his band of bullies! Along the way the other classic faculty members are introduced, as well as Pop Tate and his Choklit Shop! It’s the funniest first year of high school ever, courtesy of fan-favorite writer Batton Lash of “Wolff & Byrd” and “Archie Meets the Punisher” fame, along with “Scrapyard Detectives” creator and popular Archie artist/writer Bill Galvan.

    Yes, it’s another great entry in the ARCHIE GRAPHIC NOVEL series, now with a new 6 x 9 trim size and increased page count of 112 pages! Our focus this time is that queen of chic, KATY KEENE. Since the 1940s, fashion model supreme Katy has enthralled audiences with her own self-titled series as well as KATY KEENE PIN-UP PARADE and KATY KEENE FASHION BOOK MAGAZINE. Readers have long thrilled to her adventures on the runway as well as her intriguing romances. Best of all, Katy Keene was one of the first interactive comic book series, inviting readers to send in fashion suggestions of their own that were turned into pin-ups and paper dolls that they could cut out and keep! In 2005, Katy returned in a big way in the FREE COMIC BOOK DAY entry for that year. By popular demand, Katy soon began appearing again on a regular basis in the pages of ARCHIE & FRIENDS. Her new adventures were charted by writer-artist Andrew Pepoy, and were filled with the same adventure and romance Katy fans had come to expect, served up with a modern-day twist of course. Now these popular Katy stories are collected together for the first time. This handsome, fully colored edition features not only every KATY KEENE story from ARCHIE & FRIENDS #101 through #110, it also includes an ALL-NEW story from Pepoy that charts Katy’s whirlwind career! In “Katy’s Diary,” readers will discover how a Michigan girl went from a Chicago University student to a sensational celebrity supermodel! You won’t want to miss the high fashion hijinx!

    "MARK OF THE WOLF"
    Dark Horse's exciting new Conan era continues with a second round of adventure! As Conan recovers from last issue's clash with raiders on the Cimmerian borderlands, a kind stranger shelters him and weaves a tale of Conan's grandfather, Connacht. As an older Cimmerian, Connacht inspired young Conan with tales of dazzling lands and beautiful women, but the story the snowbound stranger relates now is one of a brush with death and supernatural beasts-brought on after an act of selfless kindness. Is it true that "no good deed goes unpunished" . . . ? With cover artist Frank Cho on board, writer Timothy Truman, artist Tomás Giorello, and colorist José Villarrubia are again joined by comic book veteran Richard Corben in a moody, horrific, and surprising issue that will leave readers in a tailspin!

    The Helm, an enchanted artifact of countless legendary heroes, has learned that its latest Chosen One is a chubby, unemployed fantasy addict . . . who lives in his mother's basement. Defying all odds, however, Matt Blurdy managed both to defeat a bloodthirsty hobgoblin and thwart the Helm's scheme to have him killed. Now the hero's training begins in earnest: workouts, retrieval of a magic flaming sword, battles with wraiths, and a showdown with a sorcerer in mortal combat. But when the media starts reporting Matt's victories as murders, an old flame reenters the picture, and true darkness looms on the horizon, even a replica Highlander trench coat might not be enough to save Matt's hide!

    ACHEWOOD: THE GREAT OUTDOOR FIGHT HC

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Chris Onstad

    Since 2001, cult comic favorite Achewood has built a six-figure international following. Intelligent, hilarious, and adult but not filthy, it's the strip you'll wish you'd discovered as an underappreciated fifteen-year-old. Dark Horse presents the hardbound edition of Achewood's The Great Outdoor Fight, the story of "Three Days, Three Acres, Three Thousand Men."

    Awards for Achewood:
    * TIME Magazine's #1 Graphic Novel of 2007.

    * Ignatz Award, "Outstanding Online Comic," 2007.

    Praise for Achewood:
    "Onstad is our greatest living cartoonist." -Tony Millionaire (Maakies, Sock Monkey)

    "These things are hilarious! You have what the NY Times Book Review might call a 'distinctive and most welcome voice' in comics." -Jim Woodring (Frank, Jim)

    "Achewood makes me laugh--in that confused, 'what the hell was that??' kind of way." -Scott McCloud

    HERBIE ARCHIVES VOLUME 1 HC

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Shane O' Shea
    Pencils: Ogden Whitney

    Make way for the Fat Fury! The unlikeliest superhero of all time makes his mark in this new Dark Horse archival series. Coming from the strange, wry imagination of classic comics scribe Richard Hughes (writing as Shane O'Shea) and artist Odgen Whitney, Herbie Popnecker looks like a plump lump, but with his collection of supernatural lollipops, there is pretty much nothing that he can't do.

    * Herbie Archives Volume One is the first of a new archive series collecting the finest works of 1960s comics publisher ACG.

    * Herbie Archives Volume 1 collects the earliest appearances of Herbie, as he battles monsters, bends time and space, and gets the better of Fidel Castro! Herbie is a delightfully weird, all-ages barrel of laughs!

    Covers: M.K. Perker

    Ladies and gentlemen, there's been a change in our flight plan.You may have heard of a group called the Etesian Front — vigilantes dedicated to taking the skies back from terrorism. Sounds like a noble cause, right? But there's more to them than meets the eye. They're after someone I know. Someone who is either an average frequent flier — or a terrorist. And he's got a secret. Something that will change the way we fly — and the way we see technology — forever.

    To find him, we've altered course. We're en route to a country that doesn't exist on any maps. Only one person knows how to get us there: me. My name is Blythe, and I'll be your stewardess today. So buckle your seatbelts — this will be the flight of your life. Don't miss a special preview of AIR #1 in MADAME XANADU #1!

    Pencils: Art Balthazar, Franco Aureliani, Various

    Step into a world where ninja is a lifestyle and the high flying, high kicking antics of Ninja Town are just part of the scenery. Nothing will prepare you for ingenuity and fearsome acrobatics the inhabitants of NinaTown summon when called to task.

    The Wee Ninjas appear in their first ever comic book adventure!

    Wee Ninja and Ninja Town are products from the line of hot designer plush toys called “Shawnimals.” With thousands of micro-plush Wee Ninja chase figures selling like hotcakes, and a Nintendo DS Ninjatown game coming next year, now is the time to get on the Shawnimals bandwagon before they explode into a phenomenon. DDP is happy to issue this as the first in many more Ninjatown offerings.

    The first of three story arcs written by three of the hottest writers in crime fictions starts here! Best-selling crime novelist Gregg Hurwitz (The Kill Clause, The Crime Writer) and Laurence Campbell (PUNISHER ANNUAL: THE HUNTED) bring you a tale of death, depravity and revenge south of the border. In black vans and under cover of night, they descend on the little Mexican town of Tierra Rota, abducting its women and returning them days later like broken dolls. And no one can stop them. That is, until one brave soul approaches Frank Castle with his heart in one hand and a bag full of money in the other. Now Frank's no bounty hunter, and definitely no hero, but there are some things the Punisher just can't abide.
