    WARHAMMER 40,000: DAMNATION CRUSADE #1 (of 6)

    Publisher:
    Boom! Studios
    Writers: Dan Abnett
    Pencils: Lui Antonio, JM Ringuet
    Covers: Lui Antonio, JM Ringuet

    "DAMNATION CRUSADE", Part 1 of 6
    It all begins here! The violent, war-torn far future of Warhammer 40,000 comes to Boom! Studios!

    In the nightmare future of the 41st millennium, Mankind teeters upon the brink of extinction. The galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man is beset on all sides by ravening aliens, and threatened from within by malevolent creatures and heretic rebels. Only the strength of the Immortal Emperor of Terra stands between Humanity and its annihilation. Foremost amongst servants of the Imperium stand the Space Marines, mentally and physically engineered to be the supreme fighting force, the ultimate protectors of Mankind. The Black Templars are fearless champions and unforgiving crusaders against the enemies of the Emperor. Forged from the Imperial Fists Space Marines in the aftermath of the Horus Heresy, the Black Templars have undertaken the longest crusade the Imperium has ever known to prove their loyalty.

    The comic centres on a new recruit to the Black Templars Space Marines and a member from their elite Sword Brethren squad, and, the most venerable of their warriors, the Dreadnaught. From the Battle of Carrion Gulf all the way through the Torment Crusade we follow these genetically enhanced super-warriors in their dedicated hunt for the enemies of the Imperium.

    Warhammer 40,000: Damnation Crusade #1 (title TBC) serves as an accessible opening chapter introducing new and old readers alike to this bloody, dark, ravaged universe of science fiction and fantasy! Gods of War and Ancestors, bless us now, for we go to war...

    BANYA: EXPLOSIVE DELIVERY MAN VOLUME 2 TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Kim Young-Oh

    Young Kong is entrusted with a delivery of great importance, and Banya schemes to free Mei from her captors. Instead of fighting fire with fire, Banya fights monsters with monsters! The delivery men of the Gaya Desert Post Office have only one motto: "Fast. Precise. Secure." Banya, the craziest and craftiest of the bunch, will stop at nothing to get a job done. Known as the "Explosive Delivery Man" for his daring, dedication, and diligence, Banya promises, "There isn't a delivery I can't make!" Whether it's transporting a rare artifact or reuniting a mother with her long-lost son, Banya will speed through war-torn deserts and mysterious forests, relying on flexibility, daring, and wits to complete his missions--no matter what the odds!

    Kim Young-Oh presents a world filled with unique monsters, heated battles, and a splash of saucy humor.

    This series is presented in its original Korean format.

    Translated by the mother/son team of Anna Kirk and Derek Kirk Kim!

    Covers: Tony Harris
    Colorist: Dave Stewart

    "THEY SHALL BE LORDS AGAIN"
    The traitors are dead, but their treachery lives on . . .

    King Conan has foiled a plot to assassinate him and usurp his throne, but the intrigue runs deeper than even he can guess, drawing the barbarian king into a web of dark magics and darker deeds.

    Conan artist Cary Nord catches his breath as seasoned Conan veteran Paul Lee joins regular writer Tim Truman to spin this tantalizing tale of mystery, magic, and mayhem, set during Conan's reign as king of Aquilonia.

    Part 1 of 4
    This is the one Cal McDonald fans have been waiting for-the biggest, scariest, weirdest Criminal Macabre story of all time and the start of the new ongoing line of Criminal Macabre comics.

    Cal McDonald, boozer, druggie, private dick who hangs with dead dudes-welcome to Rock Bottom. Your only friend in the human world is dead, your girlfriend just dumped you and moved to another city, and the district attorney has a chip on his shoulder the size of a Chevy Nova with your name on it.

    When that chip turns into a nasty case of police brutality, Cal ends up fighting for his life in the intensive care unit and wakes up days later . . . sober.

    And what's Cal been missing since he went under? Only the most horrifying convergence of sheer monster power ever to emigrate from the old world. Cal McDonald, meet Nosferatu.

    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Shirow Masamune

    Part 3 of 6
    Cybercrime special-ops unit Section 9 has been mobilized to protect a key witness in a trial involving defective micro machines. And the witness definitely needs protection-from remote-controlled corpses packing serious hardware! And if the identity of these dead assassins' pilots isn't enough of a mystery for Section 9, how about the unexpected appearance of long-missing special agent Motoko Kusanagi!

    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. This deluxe-format issue concludes "Fat Cat," the first of four Ghost in the Shell tales.

    REX MUNDI VOLUME 2 #3

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Arvid Nelson
    Penciles: Juan Ferreyra
    Covers: Juan Ferreyra

    Rex Mundi is a murder mystery set in a 1930s Europe where sorcerers stalk the streets at night and the Roman Catholic Church never lost its grip on power. Master Physician Julien Saunière must uncover the two-thousand-year-old secret of the Holy Grail before all the world is drenched in blood!

    In this issue, Julien and Genevieve join forces with a reclusive hermit in a remote French hamlet. The tiny village, it seems, was once the capital of the Merovingian kings, France's ancient rulers, rumored to be descendants of Christ . . .

    Meanwhile, the Duke of Lorraine, having taken over France, is forced south to rally his troops, bringing him closer and closer to Julien and Genevieve.

    And at last, Genevieve's motives in her dangerous double-agent role for Julien and the Duke are revealed. But she may have put Julien-and herself-in more danger than she thought!

    GHOST IN THE SHELL: STAND ALONE COMPLEX NOVEL VOLUME 3: WHITE MAZE SC

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics/DH Press Books
    By: Junichi Fujisaku

    The year is 2030. Advances in robotics and cyberbrain technology have transformed the world into a miraculous place where almost anything is possible--even the melding of humans and machines. In this not-too-distant future, the crimes of flesh and metal are investigated by Section 9, an elite counterterrorist squad headed by Chief Aramaki and his cyborg sidekick, Major Motoko Kusanagi. When dead bodies, drained of blood and with two bite marks on their necks, start turning up on the streets of Tokyo, it isn't long before the entire city is in a panic. As Major Kusanagi and the other members of Section 9 investigate the killings they begin to wonder--is the killer a real vampire or something much worse? In a dark world of murder, where cyberbrain hacks and treacherous conspiracies reach to the furthest heights of government, Section 9 is all that stands between the people and anarchy.

    SAFFRON AND BRIMSTONE: STRANGE STORIES NOVEL

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics/M Press Books
    Writers: Elizabeth Hand

    Widely praised and widely read, Elizabeth Hand is regarded as one of America's leading literary fantasists. This new collection (an expansion of the limited-release Bibliomancy, which won the World Fantasy Award in 2005) showcases a wildly inventive author at the height of her powers. Included in this collection are "The Least Trumps," in which a lonely women reaches out to the world through symbols, tattooing, and the Tarot, and "Pavane for a Prince of the Air," where neo-pagan rituals bring a recently departed soul to something very different than eternal rest. Written in the author's characteristic poetic prose and rich with the details of traumatic lives that are luminously transformed, Saffron and Brimstone is a worthy addition to an outstanding career.

    SPIDER KISS NOVEL

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics/M Press Books
    Writers: Harlan Ellison

    He claims he's not a fan of rock-and-roll, but somehow Harlan Ellison's seminal novel based on the career of Jerry Lee Lewis ended up in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. One of the first--and still one of the best--dissections of the wildly destructive rock-and-roll lifestyle, Spider Kiss isn't about giant cockroaches that attack Detroit or space invaders that smell like chicken soup. Instead, it's the story of Luther Sellers, a poor kid from Louisville with a voice like an angel who's renamed Stag Preston by a ruthless promoter. Preston's meteoric rise on the music scene is matched only by the rise in his enormous appetites--and not just for home cooking--and soon the invisible monkey named Success is riding him straight to hell. This raucous early novel reinforces Ellison's reputation as one of America's most dynamic writers.

    Watch out, you latté-sipping, bookmark-bending, literary snob! Spider-Man and the Vulture are bringing a whole new meaning to the term “Battle of the Books” as they duke it out in a bookstore! And stuck right in the middle, dodging hardcovers, is poor Deborah Whitman, author of a memoir detailing her tumultuous relationship with Peter Parker. Whoever invented that old saying about words not hurting as much as sticks and stones obviously hasn’t lived a day in the webslinger’s boots!

    You think your job is bad?

    Doug and Manny have you beat! These guys are janitors! But they’re not your typical custodial crew--no, sir! They’re the guys who keep things shiny and clean at TerroMax, Inc., the world’s biggest and best evil science think tank! When they’re not dealing with toxic spill monsters and talking mansharks, they still have to worry about mad scientists, crazy would-be dictators, and the cute girl who works at reception!

    Fresh talent Jim Massey & Robbi Rodriguez have created the funniest, most outlandish Oni Press series since BARRY WEEN!

    CODE #1

    Publisher:
    The Guardian Line
    Writers: Michael Davis
    Pencils: Michael Davis
    Covers: Michael Davis

    Code's world is a part of the Guardian Universe, but there are people, places and things unique to his environment. First, Code is not an angel. He is mortal. This is important because it allows Code to travel into Hell's Gate where all angels lose their power. Conversely, Code may be a mortal, but that in and of itself is an understatement. Code is human, but with extraordinary abilities. As Code's stories unfold, the reader finds out a little more about him. Some clues to his identity will be easy...some not. Code is conscious of the certainty that he has a family. One he is trying so very hard to get back to, trying so very hard to remember. Code is on a mission from God.

    Code is tormented by his inability to remember. He will often dream about his past, waking no closer to the truth. Steven Dark fears Code the most. That is because he has no power over this brooding man. Dark is keenly aware that Code can lay waste to his plans. This above all else makes Code a marked man in Dark's eyes. Dark knows all about Code's past. He will at times torture Code with that information. Often Dark will reveal small tidbits to Code that will send Code on a useless journey to nowhere. Dark is counting on the day he makes Code an offer: Code's past and the way back to his family in exchange for a small price.

    That price is Code's soul.
