    B.P.R.D.: THE BLACK FLAME #5 (of 6)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writers: Mike Mignola, John Arcudi
    Artists: Guy Davis, Mike Mignola (Cover)

    The secret war against the frogs is no longer secret as an ancient monster-god marches across the devastated American heartland. Air Force bombs and missiles are useless against it, so how can the B.P.R.D., on the verge of total collapse, hope to stop it? The answer lies in a dream and in the bottom of a dresser drawer of a man who never existed.

    THE PERHAPANAUTS #2 (of 4)

    Publisher:
    Dark Horse
    Writer: Todd Dezago
    Artists: Craig Rousseau, Rico Renzi (Cover)

    Hey, Perhapa-pals! Todd Dezago here. I really don't want to date myself but, y'know, I can remember a time when there wasn't any PREVIEWS. No solicitations, no cover image, no three sentence encapsulation that sorta dilutes the thrills of an upcoming story. Back then the only way you knew what your hero was in store for next month was on the last panel of this month's issue! Like—Next Issue: The Rhino! It was enticing! It was exciting! Don't get me wrong—I love PREVIEWS—it's wonderful publication. However, in honor of those bygone days, we here at The Perhapanauts will be using this space to introduce ourselves, preview some awesome artwork, and maybe tell a few jokes. Check back here next month for some of that kind of fun.

He knows he's dangerously close to the truth, and nothing short of Hell itself is going to stop him from finding out who or what is out to destroy his life.

    SENTRY #4 (of 8)

    Publisher:
    Marvel
    Writer: Paul Jenkins
    Artist: John Romita Jr.

    Who is the most powerful: the mightiest human being in the world, or the man who keeps him sane?

    That’s the question that faces Doctor Cornelius Worth, who has the unfortunate distinction of being the Sentry’s psychiatrist. Pressured by government agents, by himself, by the weight of expectation to control the Sentry and keep the Void in check, Worth worries about his own stress levels -- his personal life is completely unraveling. Is he truly important, or just a meaningless cog in the grand scheme of things?
