    THE ENGINEER #1 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    Archaia Studios Press
    Writers: Brian Churilla, Jeremy Shepherd
    Pencils: Brian Churilla
    Covers: Brian Churilla
    Colorists: Jeremy Shepherd

    An ancient sentient entity is feasting on the very fabric of space and time. Only one man can stop it: The Engineer.

    Utilizing a colossal pipe organ that enables pan-dimensional travel, The Engineer pursues the lost components of The Konstrukt, an archaic mechanism that imbues whoever possesses it with the ability to manipulate reality itself. The Engineer endeavors to restore The Konstrukt, using it to defeat the creature and undo the incalculable damage already done.

    HYBRID BASTARDS #1 (of 3)

    Publisher:
    Archaia Studios Press
    Writers: Tom Pinchuk
    Pencils: Kate Glasheen
    Covers: Kate Glasheen

    Part 1 of 3
    Zeus is a god, and he has a reputation, a reputation based on a simple truth: he’s a cad. An unrepentant, philandering cad, and it’s been driving his wife Hera nuts for years. One night Hera reaches her limit, and in a passive-aggressive act of revenge, she places a spell on Zeus, a spell that causes him to fall in lust with every inanimate object in sight. It was a night Zeus doesn’t remember, but he’s a god, after all, and so his seed took root, and eighteen years later, his unnatural hybrid bastards are wandering the world: misbegotten creatures. Quirky oddballs. Nature-defying fusions of man and inanimate object. The hybrid bastards were born in a practical joke of mythic proportions.

    But Zeus is a god, and he has a reputation, one that he wants to protect, so those hybrid bastards—evidence of a most embarrassing infidelity—have got to go. And go they do, hunted down by his goons. All except a motley crew: COTTON, a smarmy cloth patchwork; CARMINE, a timid automobile; COREY, a self-loathing apple; WALTER, a belligerent stack of bricks; and PANOS, their gallant would-be leader. This pack of hybrid bastards refuses to go quietly. Through schemes both ingenious and idiotic, they will force their negligent father to acknowledge them and, just maybe, do right by them.

    That is, if their own squabbling doesn’t defeat them first.

    MISERICORDIA #1 (of 11)

    Publisher:
    Archaia Studios Press
    By: Rebekah Brem

    Part 1 of 11
    Luscinia Solita awakens to a daily routine in the communal life of an underground city: standing on line for a job assignment, and this time it’s surface duty, trading drugs to the humanoids for records and information. The more they learn of their enemy, the closer they are to preserving their future as a dying race. But her misadventures on the Surface lead her to a young humanoid boy who is obsessed with humans.

    Infatuation and loneliness give birth to a highly dangerous affair that pushes the boundaries between natural-born enemies. Solita’s naïve actions have not only put her own life in jeopardy, but the human race as well.

    In this dystopian vision of the future, the creation ultimately turns on its creator, the true meaning of a human being is questioned, and the fine line between monster and human is realized.

    THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN VOLUME 1: PANDORAS BRIDE (Novel)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Elizabeth Hand

    Attempting to create life through dreadful experiments, Henry Frankenstein and Dr. Pretorius instead created unspeakable horror: two misshapen monsters, a brutish male and his female mate, stitched together from the bodies of cadavers. Crafted to be the monster's bride-an undead Eve to an equally accursed Adam-the female creature was destroyed mere minutes after taking its first breath-or was it?

    This new novel by the critically acclaimed Elizabeth Hand reinterprets the memorable characters from Universal Picture's classic 1935 film for a new generation of horror fans. Detailing the bride of Frankenstein's secret history, from the shadows of forgotten laboratories to the streets of Weimar Germany, Hand creates a richly atmospheric tale of horror, mystery, and tragedy as chilling as the creature itself.

    Praise for author's previous work:

    • "One of the most sheerly impressive . . . overwhelmingly beautiful books I have read in a long time. . . . [Elizabeth Hand] has written the best book of her generation."
    - Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story

    • One of fantastical fiction's most highly regarded writers, Hand is the recipient of the Nebula Award, two World Fantasy Awards, and a Washington Post Notable Book of the Year honor.

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Roman Dirge
    Pencils: Steven Daily
    Covers: Steven Daily

    It would have been a Christmas like any other for little Lumie and her horrible, terrible, obnoxious, awful bully of a brother Billy. But then a funny little monster appeared and ate Billy right up! Lumie knows it's not really a good thing to let a monster eat your brother, but she can't help but notice that things are, in fact, much nicer now that he's gone. Now that things are looking up a little in her world, Lumie has to decide what to do with her new little monster friend, and-most importantly-what she's going to feed him ...

    * Lenore creator Roman Dirge collaborates with painter Steven Daily on this one-of-a-kind hardcover storybook, perfectly suited for weird kids of all ages.

    THE KUROSAGI CORPSE DELIVERY SERVICE VOLUME 5 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Eiji Otsuka
    Pencils: Housui Yamazaki
    Covers: Housui Yamazaki

    The corpses whose last wishes Kurosagi delivers usually died not too long ago . . . for reasons that are gruesomely obvious. But when the ominous Mr. Nire returns to the scene with a re-animated mummy in tow, what they're gonna do is go back . . . way back, as the kids kick it Egyptian Old Kingdom school! Then, travel from the past into the future of death, as the Kurosagi crew unlocks the cold business behind some cryogenically frozen heads!

    * A U.S. live-action film based on The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service is tentatively scheduled for U.S. release in 2007.

    * Each volume comes shrink-wrapped and carries an 18+ content advisory."While there is cruelty, gore, violence, and implied unnatural sexual acts, the manga is also a complex and slyly ironic social commentary. Acquire this manga for adult collections for the naturalistic artwork that shows attention to human emotion, the social observation, and the banter between members of the delivery service." (Christine Gertz, Library Journal)

    LANKHMAR BOOK 4: SWORDS AGAINST WIZARDRY TP (Novel)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Fritz Leiber

    Sent by a witch on a foolhardy journey, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser return to the icy reaches of the north in search of dubious treasure. There, they are seduced by the glittering attractions of an ice woman, who brings them with her to her shadowy lair. Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser--brothers in arms--are overwhelmed by intimations of power and rise to usurp power in Quarmall, a dangerous region of lies, magic, and swords.

    * Any reader who loved the Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia series of novels and movies will enjoy Lankhmar.

    * "One of the great works of fantasy in this century--unequaled in its ironic wit, mordant romanticism, and baroque invention, as well as a range of tone and affect not usually associated with the genre . . . "-Publishers Weekly

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Yumi Tohma

    Keiichi Morisato was a typical college student, a failure with women, struggling to get through his classes, and in general living a pretty nondescript life. That is, until he dialed the wrong number and accidentally summoned the Norse goddess Belldandy. Not believing Belldandy was a goddess and that she could grant his every wish, Keiichi wished for her to stay with him forever. As they say: Be careful what you wish for! Now bound to Earth and at Keiichi's side for life, the lives of this most un-normal goddess and most lucky human will never be the same again.

    Based on the internationally successful manga, film, and television series, Oh My Goddess!: First End is the first novel in the franchise's history and is sure to be a sensation to all its English-speaking fans around the world!

    * The second season of the new Oh My Goddess! TV series is planned for DVD release in late 2007, which should build awareness for this property.

    * In 2006 Oh My Goddess! became the longest-running American manga series in history.

    This marks the debut of the first Oh My Goddess! novel published in America!
