    Covers: Brian Denham

    Earth-shattering change is on the horizon as the next generation of computer interfacing software floods the market. However, this revolutionary new software that does everything from train the military to predict the weather and play enhanced reality games has a fatal flaw: it can program minds...or trap them. Driven by the need to save her husband from the software's snare, Cynthia Weir, the inventor, faces danger in the real and virtual worlds. Outside, as she struggles to reconfigure the program, the global government schemes to wrest away control of her groundbreaking creation. Within, she risks all to be reunited with her comatose husband. But the information superhighway is paved with good intentions...

    Publisher:
    Brain Scan Studios
    Writers: Rich Johnston
    Pencils: Kaare Andrews, Ashley Wood, Darick Robertson and more
    Covers: Mark Bright, Nick Roche, James Raiz

    THE DESIGN SENSE OF THE UNIVERSE IS CHANGING AND IT'S TIME TO DECIDE: WHOSE SIDE DO YOU DRESS ON?

    Rich Johnston, star of CSI: Dying In The Gutters, and gossip monger extraordinaire has assembled an awesome army of artists (Kaare Andrews, Ashley Wood, Darick Robertson, Ilya, Fred Hembeck, Billy Dallas Patton, Mike Netzer, Lea Hernandez, Frazer Irving, Natalie Sandalls, Sam Hart, Thomas Mauer and more) to portray a changing universe in conflict. As The Old Fanboy Warriors die in an explosion and the battle over the Deconstruction Act begins, so some very familiar figures are redesigned, revamped and reconstructed, from Spider-Mart to Osama Bin Hulk. Joe Quesada has officially not objected to the publication of this one shot. And there is no Mike Turner variant cover. Sorry.

    "DOGS OF THE HILLS"

Yet lurking amidst the rocks are adversaries hungry for his flesh, his purse, and his soul. A day of death and pain has dawned for the Cimmerian, and when it ends, the wild, the wicked, and the foolish shall fear one name--Conan!

    HELLGATE: LONDON #0 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Ian Edginton
    Pencils: Steve Pugh
    Covers: Steve Pugh
    Colorist: Dan Jackson

    Few video games have enjoyed such a frenetic buzz around their release as the upcoming Hellgate: London, and with good reason--they haven't had the awesome talent of former Diablo developers and executives working on an inaugural release! Now together as Flagship Studios, these formidable creative minds have developed a groundbreaking game that's guaranteed to become another best-selling franchise.

    Ian Edginton, the critically acclaimed author of Scarlet Traces and the recent War of the Worlds webcomic adaptation, teams with Superman and Preacher artist Steve Pugh to explore this demon-ravaged metropolis in comics form. Hellgate fans will eat up the realistic flavor that both UK creators bring to the work, and Flagship has had hands-on approval every step of the way.

    MI5 agent Lyra Darius discovers a human charnel house in the heart of London while tailing Lord Sumerisle, the recently resigned Home Office Minister for Internal Affairs. She's soon entangled in a bloody intrigue with Knights Templar, and everything is building up to All Hallows Eve!

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Russ Manning, Robert Schaefer, Eric Freiwald
    Pencils: Russ Manning
    Covers: Russ Manning

    In the year 4000, when the human race is threatened by robots that would enslave mankind, one man alone has the power to fight back: Magnus, Robot Fighter!

    Dark Horse delivers another fantastic collection of rare classics from a comics legend! Russ Manning, famous for his spectacular work on the Tarzan newspaper strips of the late sixties, brought fans his “Tarzan of the future" in Magnus, Robot Fighter. While his work on the original comic series lasted only twenty-one issues, Manning's creation has survived generations, influencing countless science fiction artists and writers to this day. Fans of Alex Raymond, Mac Raboy, or Wally Wood should not miss this beautifully bound hardcover-the third Magnus archival collection and the latest addition to Dark Horse's line of science fiction classics.

    OHIKKOSHI TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Hiroaki Samura
    Pencils: Hiroaki Samura
    Covers: Hiroaki Samura

    These stories are told with the same bold, kinetic art style and brilliantly paced storytelling that Samura's Blade of the Immortal epic is famous for. The main offering, "Ohikkoshi," follows the turbulent paths of several twenty-something art students as they fall in love, fall in lust, play in rock bands, ride motorbikes, eat, sleep (together), and try to avoid making life decisions while drunk. This romantic comedy is a "Japanese art school confidential" packed with absurd humor, obscure death metal references, and some expertly placed, dramatic revelations. "Luncheon of Tears Diary" is a vibrant, genre-busting tale that also peppers its humor with sharp, dramatic moments. Natsumi Funabashi, a virgin, is an aspiring manga creator on a quest for love and a fulfilling career. Along the way, she has to cope with overzealous men, gang warfare, a mahjong addiction, and a lascivious manga editor. This collection is rounded off by Samura's hilarious "Kyoto Super Barhopping Journal: Bloodbath at Midorogaike," a rare, autobiographical travel piece.

    Covers: James Jean

    Don't miss this stunning original hardcover collection written by FABLES creator Bill Willingham set in the early days of Fabletown, long before the FABLES series began! Featuring sequences illustrated by Charles Vess, Brian Bolland, John Bolton, Michael Wm. Kaluta, James Jean, Mark Buckingham, Jill Thompson and more, 1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL is both an entry point to the critically acclaimed series and an essential part of Willingham's enchanting and imaginative FABLES mythos.

    Traveling in Arabia as an Ambassador from the exiled FABLES community, Snow White is captured by the local sultan who wants to marry her (and then kill her). But the clever Snow attempts to charm the sultan instead by playing Scheherazade, telling him fantastic stories for a total of 1,001 nights. Running the gamut from horror to dark intrigue to mercurial coming-of-age, FABLES:1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL reveals the secret histories of familiar FABLES characters through a series of compelling and visually illustrative tales.

    "EQUINOX", Part 1 of 5
    When the Son of Satan is your best option, God help you.

    New Orleans. The Big Easy. The membrane between our world and the underworld has always been a little thinner here. Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the outpouring of human misery has drawn demons like sharks to a bloodbath. What better time for Damian Hellstorm --- a.k.a. The Son of Satan -- to pay a visit?

    It starts with the doctor who delivers a baby that vanishes into the night. A doctor who is devoured by demons wearing New Orleans PD badges. Demons who work for someone--or something--that’s descended on the Big Easy and doesn’t’ give a damn who Hellstorm or his father is. Something that’s harvesting body parts in a furious race toward unspeakable purposes. This is The Son of Satan as you’ve never seen him before, brought to you by acclaimed novelist Alexander Irvine (The Narrows), with searing art by Russell Braun (Animal Man) and Klaus Janson.

    During the prohibition era, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust, and other sins to fuel a much more lucrative trade: mortal souls. Three demon families—the Aligheris, the Roarkes, and the Verlochin—control soul-trafficking within the city, capitalizing on “the rackets” to lead unfortunates into their grasp and poor Eddie is caught in the middle...

    "SON OF HEAVEN, SON OF HELL"
    Six hundred years ago, a mighty treasure fleet set out to sail the oceans of the world.

Now, in modern day Los Angeles, seven men with nothing in common but their destinies are drawn together in the service of a mysterious young woman. An ancient prophecy must be fulfilled. Something terrible is reaching out across the centuries. There's a world to be saved... and the only hope for us all is a motley crew of so-called brothers and a power too terrifying to be used.
