    KILLBOX VOLUME 1 GN

    Publisher:
    Antarctic Press
    Writers: Brian Denham
    Pencils: Brian Denham
    Covers: Brian Denham

    "Killbox" is the military term for enemy territory that is target-rich. Deadly force is authorized for anything that moves inside "the box." Marine Corps tank commander Lalone leads his men into the heart of battle to deliver humanitarian supplies. When the enemy advances, his escape route is cut off. Trapped behind enemy lines and inside the killbox, the tankers must face off against brutal warlords, warring factions, snipers and wily female missionaries sabotaging their every move. Can this tank crew survive their first foray into the KILLBOX, the most dangerous place on Earth? Packed with sketches, interviews, photos, and a full-length story, this preview book takes you behind the scenes of the making of this exciting new series. Comics creator Brian Denham (Evil Ernie, Warrior Nun, Violator vs. Badrock) delivers a tour-de-force of explosive military action. For fans of Saving Private Ryan, Blackhawk Down, Full Metal Jacket or Platoon, this is a must-have. Alternate cover by Joseph Wight (Twilight X, Star Wars: The Manga, Gen13).

    Part 1 of 6
    Mankind. What once was the earth's most dominant species is now an ever slovenous, carrion race after a mysterious contagion infects it from within. Humanity now thralls to animalistic whim and with only the dark remnants of a bleak distant past to guide them into a choking future's’ cradling arms, a seemingly insignificant few revolt against the overpowering empire in an attempt to free this yielding world from the frigid chains of ironic fate. It is the year 3030AD...and this is the vehement of the Outlaw...Scorn.

An otherworldly abomination shall rend the veil dividing Conan's world from unspeakable terrors beyond as a black-hearted sorcerer's lust for power unleashes an evil that surpasses his control or reckoning. Only the cool head and cold steel of the Cimmerian can save all creation from the slimy, smothering damnation of this unnamable horror.

    GHOST IN THE SHELL 1.5: HUMAN ERROR PROCESSOR #2 (of 8)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Shirow Masamune

    Part 2 of 8
    How do you keep a dead man from being murdered? Business bigwig Hayasaka might be dead, but he keeps turning up walking and talking, and Section 9 agents need to find out whether he's being remotely "puppeted" and whether those pulling the strings-like the mysterious Takoaka of the Institute of Technology-are the same people trying to control access to Pandora, a vast digital treasure trove of information of the most sensitive-and dangerous-nature.

    Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor presents for the first time in America the "lost" Ghost in the Shell stories, created by Shirow Masamune after completing work on the original Ghost in the Shell manga and prior to his tour-de-force, Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface, but never collected until now. This deluxe-format issue concludes "Fat Cat," the first of four Ghost in the Shell tales, and is presented in right-to-left reading format, as originally published in Japan.

    THE GOON VOLUME 5: WICKED INCLINATIONS TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Eric Powell

    The tide has turned in Goon's war against the undead hordes of the Zombie Priest--or has it? With Buzzard now preventing the harvest of any fresh corpses from the cemetery, the Priest grows desperate. So desperate, that he unleashes incantations of previously unseen power to create a whole new breed of minion--one that may be beyond even the strength of the Goon to contain. But one pays a price for conjuring such evil into the world, and the Zombie Priest quickly discovers that the cost of such power may be far more than he bargained for.

    OH MY GODDESS! VOLUME 3 TP AUTHENTIC EDITION

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kosuke Fujishima

    Ever since a cosmic phone call brought the literal young goddess Belldandy into college student Keiichi's residence, his personal life has been turned upside down, sideways, and sometimes even into strange dimensions!

    No sooner has Belldandy's bored big sister Urd descended than she tries to alleviate her boredom by shoving Bell and Keiichi together, preferably by wicked spells and sorcery gone horribly wrong. Of course, good intentions from Belldandy don't necessarily lead to better results, as she creates a simple scheme to help him study for an exam that involves setting loose on campus a dim-witted, cross-dressing clone of Keiichi! Then, a Nekomi Motor Club recruitment drive nets him the unwelcome figure of a would-be romantic rival-and not from the usual pack of greasy anthropoids Keiichi hangs out with. This guy drives a Ferrari!

    Granny Viper is a "people finder," a searcher for lost souls along the roads of a forbidding wasteland. Her latest mission: the safe return of a young woman named Tae, kidnapped eight years ago by vampire Nobility and held in Castle Gradinia on the Frontier's far border. But rescuing Tae is only half the battle--Viper knows she and the girl can't cross the formidable expanse to the town of Barnabas alone. After making the fatal mistake of hiring the mercenary Bullow Brothers to help her, Granny turns to the legendary Vampire Hunter D for salvation. As they traverse the bleak desert between the Inner and Outer Frontier, the two women and D find themselves in a race for their lives. And they soon discover how cruel the desert is--and how very ruthless the Bullow Brothers are . . .

    CROSSING MIDNIGHT #1

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Vertigo Comics
    Writers: Mike Carey
    Pencils: Jim Fern, Rob Hunter
    Covers: J.H. Williams III

    Mike Carey - writer of the Eisner-nominated Lucifer and Ultimate Fantastic Four - returns to the magical world of twisted horror in a new Vertigo monthly series drawn by the breakout art team of Jim Fern (Fables) & Rob Hunter (The First). In modern-day Japan, Kai and his twin sister Toshi are born on opposite sides of midnight. But that casual line in time will have disastrous effects on their lives: Their friends will go missing; commonplace knives will hide deadly secrets; and Kai and Toshi will have to save themselves and their entire family from their own horrible destinies.

    Set in contemporary Nagasaki, Crossing Midnight taps into Japanese and Korean horror to mix the mythology of The Sandman with the fantasy of films like Hayao’s Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. Together, Mike Carey and Jim Fern come up with flights of fantasy tethered to a reality where children are stolen, innocence corrupted, and where two teenagers will have to stare down bizarre beings capable of very visceral terrors.

    WHISPER #1 (One Shot)

    Publisher:
    BOOM! Studios
    Writers: Stephen Grant
    Pencils: JJ Dzialowski
    Covers: Kody Chamberlain

    Steven Grant's legendary First Comics heroine is back – as an all-new, all-different character! In New Orleans on the eve of Katrina, a collection of privatized black ops gather to provide security for a special mission: security for a drugs-for-weapons swap. Into this gathering steps a woman - the new Whisper. Who may or may not be the woman they think she is, a woman who's supposed to be dead, is very skilled and precise at violence and seems to have useful gaps in her memory. Whoever she is, whatever her agenda, her skills make her invaluable to the man commanding the mission, and he's willing to use her until she runs out of uses. This is an all-new re-imagining, Ultimates-and-All-Star-style, of the legendary First Comics franchise, in mood and spirit much closer to 100 BULLETS than ELEKTRA!

    As a result, we’ve requested that retailers not mark up the variant mis-printed copies and explain the misprint to their customers and sell any misprinted copies at the regular cover price.
