    BERSERK VOLUME 14 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kentaro Miura

    The once unbeatable Band of the Hawk is smashed, and their former leader, Griffith, has made an unholy pact with the demon lords of the Godhand, sacrificing his former troops to resurrect his crippled body and ascend to stand in power beside these profane gods. The Invocation of Doom has unleashed a plague of unspeakable horrors upon the earth, and the first battle not only shatters the Hawks, but the hand of their champion, Guts, and the mind of their captain and Guts' lover, Casca. And while time may heal some of Guts' wounds, it will not heal his desire for vengeance. And his discovery of a gigantic, dragon-slaying sword might be just the ticket to deal out some king-sized payback!

    Also included in this volume: "Berserk Prototype," the very first Berserk story, created during Kentaro Miura's college days as his audition that sold the series!

As a camera crew is in town to film a news segment on this unique place, the town is turned upside down by a murder...and it becomes evident that everything isn’t as quaint as it seems!

    The Flare, a dying super-hero with a chip on his shoulder, attempts to set his life in order. In doing so, he comes to understand the number of lives that he touched, the number of people that look up to him, and that he was, in fact, much more of a hero than he ever dreamed himself to be.

    They finally did it. Kicked them to the curb. The “capes and tights” crowd -- there’s no place for them in the Big Apple anymore. Peter Parker? He can’t even remember what it was like to don the red and blue and swing through the night sky. Doesn’t want to, anyway. After all, there’s nothing left to fight for, is there? That is until an old “friend” appears on Peter’s doorstep, bearing a package and a message -- and everything changes. If it’s not Peter’s responsibility, then whose is it?

    The latest volume of the Modern Masters series looks at the life and work of one of today’s top comic-book artists, Mike Wieringo. Like the title character of his first major job, The Flash, Wieringo hit the comic book industry running. Armed with a fresh, unique style all his own—merging elements of manga with the power of the Marvel comics of his youth—he quickly became a fan-favorite. His work featuring Robin and Superman, Spider-Man and the X-Men—not to mention the creator-owned world of Tellos—has cemented him as one of the top artists in the business. And his recent run on Fantastic Four ranks among the best in the title’s long and prestigious history. Now Todd Dezago and Eric Nolen-Weathington give you an inside look at the artist’s life and career! This 120-page volume presents his most comprehensive, career-spanning interview to date, and is jam-packed with tons of rare and unpublished artwork, including an 8-page full color gallery. It’s the ultimate look at the work of a true Modern Master: Mike Wieringo!

    PET NOIR: AN ANTHOLOGY OF STRANGE BUT TRUE PET CRIMES

    Publisher:
    Manic D Press
    By: Shannon O'Leary

    "He looked like the beast of death."-Cydnee Dubrof, on the dog that killed lacrosse coach Diane Whipple

    "I thought she was just a quirky lady. She was well-dressed, she drove a nice car. She didn't seem to be unstable."-a neighbor describing Marilyn Barletta, the Petaluma cat lady

    Putting the cat back in catastrophe and the dog in doggoned, Pet Noir entertains (and informs) by turning traditional noir storytelling on its furry little ear: These illustrated tales explore America's obsession with true crime by taking a darkly comedic approach while raising awareness about animal welfare.

    Conceived and written by Shannon O'Leary and illustrated by today's finest comic book artists, the stories in Pet Noir shed fur on some of the odder crimes committed in recent years, including the notorious San Francisco deadly dog mauling, the infamous Petaluma cat lady, and the heartbreaking saga of Leo the Bichon Frise's untimely demise at the hands of a savage road-raging lunatic. Pet Noir is a perfect read for true-crime fans, pet lovers, animal rights activists, vegans, and graphic novel aficionados.

    Featured artists include Andy Ristaino, Lev Yilmaz, Trevor Alixopolous, John Isaacson, August Bournique, Ben Claassen III, Bitter Pie, Fly, Fred Einaudi, Jen Feinberg, Joan Reilly, MariNaomi, N8 Van Dyke, Paul Musso, Peter Conrad, and Ric Carrasquillo.
