Critically acclaimed graphic novelist Garth Ennis and Mike Wolfer unleash an all-new kind of horror as they rip the horrors of war right from today’s headlines and thrust it beyond the boundaries of sanity.

Injured and lacking food, water, and medicine, they discover something far worse than enemy fighters among the sun-bleached rocks: an ancient supernatural power, murderous and unstoppable. Despite a timely rescue by a handful of British S.A.S. commandos, they’re still hopelessly outnumbered by the shambling, ragged undead and the evil human intelligence that controls them. Available with a Trade Paperback, Hard Cover, and a special Signed Hard Cover Edition (limited to 500 copies and signed by Garth Ennis and Mike Wolfer) all featuring covers by Mike Wolfer!

(W/A/CA) Chester Gould
What does Crewy Lou do with Bonny Braids? Dick and Tess’s baby isn’t the only child in danger in Volume 14: wait ’til you meet Sparkle Plenty’s new best friend, “Little Wings,” and discover the ominous reason she appears to glow in the dark! Chester Gould also ramps up the violence and death traps, introduces more inventions (closed circuit surveillance, the first broadcast police line-up), and more cra-a-zy characters such as Tonsils, Dot View, Mr. Crime, Odds Zonn, Newsuit Nan, and Spinner ReCord, plus the touching story of the girl known as Model. Including all strips from September 16, 1951 – April 18, 1953.

LIL ABNER HC VOL 05

(W/A/CA) Al Capp
In the darkest hours of World War II, why were millions of people laughing? Because they were reading Li’l Abner, that’s why! The fifth volume of this series features daily strips and full-color Sundays from 1943 and 1944, with a zany cast of characters that includes Shadrack Throwback, “The Monster,” Madame Lazonga, and Joan L. Sullivan, plus returning favorites like Moonbeam McSwine, Swami Riva, and Available Jones. Capp also aims his satirical barbs at teen idol Frank Sinatra (yes, Frank Sinatra!), as a starving Li’l Abner Yokum croons his way into female hearts. Meanwhile, the hilarious take-off on Dick Tracy, Fearless Fosdick, is like getting two comic strips in one!
ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS WOMEN ON WAR PROSE SC

(W) Rain Graves & Various (A) Ericka Lugo
Presenting a dozen-less-two high-value adventures straight from the global zombie/robot conflict, Women on War is definitive proof that IDW’s Band of Sisters can bring the Zombie Terror and Robot Menace as good (if not better) than their ZvR brothers. Tier One Operators in the theater of compelling (and often squishy) action-horror, this unique volume features all-new illustrations by IDW’s latest discovery, artist Ericka Lugo. Award-winning horror/dark fantasy writer Nancy Holder provides an insightful introductory essay. Leading literary experts agree, adding this distinctive title to your library is a real no-brainer, but you must act quickly, we won’t be keeping it in print for long, only initial orders are guaranteed to be filled.
