GodisDead1IconicLike a thunderbolt from heaven, the epic launch issue of GOD IS DEAD is here! East of West and Fantastic Four author JONATHAN HICKMAN launches a fierce new series that stomps where others fear to tread. Mankind has argued over the existence of gods since the dawn of time. In modern eras it’s been fashionable to mock religious believers with taunts of scientific testimony and fact. But when the gods of old begin to reappear on earth and claim the domain of man for their own, the world is thrown into a state of utter anarchy. Now Horus walks the streets of Egypt, Zeus has taken over the Sistine Chapel, and Odin is coordinating the dissection of the earth among the returned deities. Mankind held sway over the world for thousands of years and their hubris over that time has made them powerful but when faced with the divine, can mortal weapons put an end to the second coming of the gods? Available with a Regular cover by Jonathan Hickman, End of Days cover by super-star Jacen Burrows, a premium Iconic cover by Burrows that features a card stock cover and is limited to just 5000 copies, and a Pantheon Order Incentive cover by series artist Di Amorim.

CrossedSpecial2013RedcrossedSimon Spurrier and Gabriel Andrade celebrate five years of CROSSED with the first ever giant-sized Special! How do you commemorate a half-decade of GARTH ENNIS’ violent masterpiece? By creating a story that goes beyond the surface misery of the gleeful Crossed maniacs and reaching into the fragile human psyche with something truly terrifying. Todd drives a road train through the desolate Australian outback. Before C-day he was a loser, an outcast, a fat nobody with a nobody-job. Now he’s an Emperor of the wasteland. His rig and its trailers are the safest place around: stocked to the brim with canned food and gasoline. But his desire to have a harem who worship him opens himself up to the true horrors of the outback. Spurrier brings his trademark flare for developing intricately flawed characters to a story that will haunt your dreams for years to come. In a world of Crossed…there is no hope and there is no help. There is only the Crossed. To celebrate this anniversary, original series artist Jacen Burrows returns to draw all the covers! Available with a Regular, Wraparound, Torture, and special Red Crossed Incentive covers.

$19.99
Writer: David Lapham
Cover & Artist: Rafael Ortiz
MR, Color, 160 pages

Fan favorite writer DAVID LAPHAM has created one of the truly original gonzo comics of the decade. Dan is the man. He’s a self-made slacker who some might call a bum, but he calls perfect. After all, he doesn’t need much, some good tunes, a couple of bucks, and a warm spot to take a nap in. Of course, his sort-of-maybe-wannabe kids keep getting into trouble with the most insane killers imaginable. It’s enough to give a guy cancer just thinking about it. But this unharmable likable bumpkin has to get his act together and help the kids before social services splits them up or a secretive Hollywood society of killers turn them into ground beef. Explosive and imaginative crime noir as written by a master of the genre, Eisner Award-winning writer David Lapham. Collects issues #7 – 12 of the Dan the Unharmable series.
