    THE ESCAPISTS #6 (of 6)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Brian K. Vaughan
    Pencils: Jason Shawn Alexander, Steve Rolston, Eduarto Barreto
    Covers: Steve Rolston
    Colorist: Matt Hollingsworth, Dave Stewart

    Wizard Top Ten writer and multiple Eisner Award winner Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man; Ex Machina; Runaways) reveals the fate of the Escapist and the plucky comic-bookers who brought this classic hero back to life!

    As if betrayal at the hands of his onetime ally and lover Luna Moth wasn't enough, the Escapist reels from an even greater revelation-one that will undo everything he ever believed to be true! Jason Shawn Alexander (Damn Nation, The Secret) illustrates this watershed moment in the history of the Escapist.

    Meanwhile, artist Steve Rolston (Queen & Country, One Bad Day) captures equally stunning changes in the lives of the Escapist's writer, artist, and letterer. When tragedy strikes, will the character that brought them together ultimately tear them apart? Find out in this fantastic final issue of the Escapist's first miniseries!

    MAIL VOLUME 1 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Housui Yamazaki

    Private detective Reiji Akiba has a theory about those awkward moments and weird coincidences we all encounter in life. They are actually encounters with the dead-their way of sending us a message. But you may not want to open such strange mail from beyond-not unless you can see the ghostly attachment, like Akiba can. And not unless you carry a gun that can kill what isn't alive, like Akiba's aptly named Kagutsuchi, "the tool between God and earth" . . . digging a divine grave to lay to rest the evil dead.

    Volume 1 of Mail opens with a model's photo shoot at what was a lovely riverside. But someone's thrown their trash away here: human bones. When the negatives in the darkroom reveal hidden horror, it's time for the magazine to hire Akiba. The answers lie in the secret basement of a shunned house . . . but they don't lie peacefully!

    OUTER ORBIT #1 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Zach Howard, Sean Murphy, Reed Buccholz
    Pencils: Zach Howard, Sean Murphy
    Covers: Charlie Kirchoff

    Part 1 of 4
    In space, no one can hear you scream . . . or belch, or swear, or cry like a little girl when you're about to be taken down by merciless interstellar bounty hunters who want that mysterious idol you swiped from that hot chick who inexplicably gave you the tip of a lifetime (if you know what I mean) when you showed up at the wrong hotel room with the pizza delivery. This assumes that "you" are ne'er-do-well big-talker Quinn and explains-sort of-how "you" hooked up (not like that!) with a big badass of a former galactic cop (and current mama's boy) by the name of Krunk, who is not your partner and not your buddy, got it? Oh, and by the way, the hot chick is hotter than ever (in the bad way) and she wants that idol back, and this time she's probably going to give you a different kind of gratuity, like with a laser ax or a plasma grenade or something. Try talking your way out of that one, spacehole!

    Created by Zach Howard (Shaun of the Dead) and Sean Murphy (Scarecrow: Year One; Off Road), with screenwriter Reed Buccholz, Outer Orbit is outrageous, rude, hilarious space fantasy that takes the time-honored traditions of this beloved genre and leaves them face-down in a filthy alley in a pool of their own sick.

    SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE: SLEEP OF REASON #1 (of 5)

    Publisher:
    DC Comics/Vertigo Comics
    Writers: John Ney Rieber
    Pencils: Eric Nguyen
    Covers: Tim Bradstreet

    A Vertigo classic returns — with a vengeance! The fertile mind of writer John Ney Rieber (BOOKS OF MAGIC, Captain America) and the dynamic pen of artist Eric Nguyen (Strange Girl) have created a Sandman tale that both honors the classic character and will stand as a classic in its own right.

    A new age of terror demands a new Sandman to quell its nightmares. This disturbing new miniseries follows the final days of Wesley Dodds and his lifelong love Dian Belmont as they encounter a harrowing fate while traveling in Afghanistan circa 1997. Ten years later, with American troops on the ground in that country, wartime photojournalist Kieran Marshall is forced to take on the mantle of Wesley's former alter-ego, the terrifying crimefighter known as The Sandman.

    A dark and relevant tale that will appeal to new readers as well as fans of the classic Vertigo series, SLEEP OF REASON questions what it means to be human when confronted with evil. Marshall is a man in search of a career-making interview with master-terrorist Masad. When he confronts Masad face-to-face, he learns to his horror that this terrorist can teach him more about himself than he ever wanted to know. Becoming the new Sandman will be the only way Kieran can save his own life — but, possibly, at the cost of his humanity.
