    Dark Horse Comics
    By: Dean Motter

    Part 1 of 4
    Twenty-five years ago, Mister X debuted with a concept so clever and a character so captivating that it influenced an entire generation of comics fans and creators. Today, Motter reclaims the reins and sets out to inspire a whole new generation with Mister X: Condemned, a completely fresh introduction to the elusive Mister X and his dystopian home--Somnopolis, the City of Nightmares.

    With influences from Film Noir to German Expressionism, this story of a city gone mad and the never-sleeping man who's obsessed with saving it will amaze anyone interested in masterpiece storytelling born from the vision of a single iconoclastic creator.

    * One of the most iconic characters of alternative comics--Mister X--is reborn in a new four-part series by his original creator, legendary designer Dean Motter!

    "Perhaps the first legitimate combination of science fiction and German Expressionism seen in comics." -Frank Miller

    "A sharp mixture of Raymond Chandler, Blade Runner, Peyton Place, and a post-punk Dante's Inferno." -Blitz magazine

    STAR WARS OMNIBUS: RISE OF THE SITH TP

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Various
    Pencils: Various

    Before the name of Skywalker--or Vader--achieved fame across the galaxy, the Jedi Knights had long preserved peace and justice . . . as well as preventing the return of the Sith.

    Collected in this newest Star Wars Omnibus are tales leading up to The Phantom Menace. First--previously uncollected and out of print--Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi save a sinking ship in The Aurorient Express and investigate an unexpected death in Last Stand on Ord Mantell. The origins of bounty hunter Aurra Sing are revealed in "Aurra's Song." Then, in Jedi Council and Prelude to Rebellion we follow two key Jedi Masters, Mace Windu and Ki-Adi-Mundi as they face new foes that will try the Jedi ways to the very limit. And finally, in Darth Maul, the terrifying Sith apprentice leaves a trail of death in his efforts to keep the secrets of his Master.

    UMBRELLA ACADEMY: DALLAS #2

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse Comics
    Writers: Gerard Way
    Pencils: Gabriel Bá
    Covers: Gabriel Bá
    Colorists: Dave Stewart

    While Spaceboy watches reality TV and Number Five lies low in a seedy motel, a threat against the Umbrella Academy begins to rouse the team, who've been rather uninspired since the catastrophic events from 2007's best-selling Apocalypse Suite. Only one member of the team understands the danger that lies ahead-the massacre in Costello's Diner has raised some suspicions of what's happened, and what's to come. At the heart of this, the Umbrella Academy feels the loss of Pogo, the chimp that had held them together since childhood, and resort to remedies that won't help, and, sadly, won't cure boredom.

    2008 Eisner Award winner-Best Limited Series and Best Cover Artist!

    By: Stan Sakai

    "THE OUTLAW"
    The outlaw Taniguchi is the bounty of the day, and hunters Gen and Stray Dog once again find themselves joining forces to better their chances of catching their common prey. Agreeing that the first to capture Taniguchi should receive the lion's share of the reward, the two part ways in an attempt to cover as much territory as possible.

    Yet when Gen is the first to find the outlaw, he discovers that-much to his dismay-Taniguchi is essentially a decent guy, undeserving of death! What will this money-loving, sentimental cutthroat do?

Before his role in “The Death of Captain America,” no one was more patriotic than the Cap of the Fifties, even if he does have Steve Rogers’ shoes to fill. Unfortunately, Nick Fury, a newly minted operative of the CIA, isn't about to let him off the hook that easily. But Cap and Fury better start working together, or they'll find themselves buried in Reds! PLUS: a bonus reprinting of a classic Cap tale from the fabulous fifties!

    It all starts when two mobsters take a trip to the zoo and piss off the wrong monkey.

That’s right -- she’s back and she wants payback. Ma Gnucci. Eighty-five pounds of hairless, armless, legless evil.
