Caliban-vol1

CALIBAN TPB
$19.99
Writer: Garth Ennis
Cover & Art: Facundo Percio
MR, Color, 176 pages

The crew of the mining ship Caliban is on a routine mission deep in the universe and confident that nothing outside the normal humdrum monotony of space travel will occur. But when they encounter an alien vessel their dreams of a simple mission turn into a nightmare unfolding along the lonely corridors of the cold steel ship. Something is stalking them and systematically eliminating the few remaining personnel one by one. How can you fight something you can’t even understand? Claustrophobic terror grips the crew now as they attempt to escape the thing that has waited patiently for them to eventually arrive in the vast lonely darkness. No one is safe in deep space. Revolutionary comics writer Garth Ennis (Preacher, Crossed) takes you to a very dark place with the type of high tension paranoid storytelling that will leave a lasting mark on you. Beautifully illustrated by Facundo Percio (Fashion Beast), Caliban is a must read for horror and sci-fi fans alike. This volume collects the Caliban #1 – 7 comic book series.

UBER VOL 3 TPB
$19.99
Cover: Daniel Gete
Writer: Kieron Gillen

MR, Color, 160 pages

The horrors of enhanced soldier war have taken a dire turn for the Allies. Their attempts to develop a counter to the German Battleship Ubers have led to a crossroads in development. But the discovery that the Nazis have not only discovered the same weapons but have improved upon them leaves a terrible hole in their ability to mount a defense. With both sides suffering herculean losses and the devastation of world war decimating every nation, the escalation of super human combat is making the Allies desperate for foothold. Kieron Gillen (Journey into Mystery) has created a unique and terrifying mix of the fantastic and the horrible that will leave you speechless in the blood soaked pages of Uber. The horrors of super human warfare are immeasurable. This volume collects issues #12 – 17 of the ongoing Uber comic book series.

CROSSED +100 #3
$3.99
Writer: Alan Moore
Covers and Art: Gabriel Andrade
MR, Color, 32 pages, monthly

When human civilization is lost, does that mean we’ve lost our humanity? Alan Moorereturns to monthly comics and puts his unique stamp upon the Crossed universe, as he and artist Gabriel Andrade paint a vivid picture of the future 100 years after the outbreak! Future Taylor and her crew uncover a horrific nest and get forced into making some brutal choices. Attempting to piece together the past and the history of the Crossed, Future Taylor is discovering the horrifying truth of the plague that nearly wiped out the human race. This multi-layered story delivers a new brand of horror to Crossed fans at the hands of the scribe that redefined the comics medium.

This masterwork is a self-contained whole new world; no prior knowledge of the Crossed series is needed.

All the covers for the series have been planned out by Alan Moore, with the images enriching and expanding on the series. Clues and glimpses of what came before, and what might be, are found throughout the variant covers.

American History X Wraparound – Each of these will depict a specific time in the past hundred years, showing how things have changed and offering a peek at some key events. Each cover will display the year in which it takes place to help build the full picture.

Crossed Culture – These are all images of how the Crossed have changed the way they live. With few humans left to hunt, and the animal kingdom thriving with predators, even the thrill-driven Crossed have had to make adjustments to their lifestyle.

Future Tense – Each cover is a homage to a famous work of science fiction, and each of those original works ties into themes of this series.

New World Order Wraparound – These are not for the faint of heart or delicate of constitution. We can’t even picture them in this catalog, they are visions of what an ideal all-Crossed world would be. If the madmen have their dreams come true, what would the everyday life look like? These covers are brutally intense images of true horror and may have scenes of torture, depravity, and nudity. These are clearly for adults only. Each copy of this edition will ship in a sealed polybag with a protective slip cover over the actual image to assure it can be racked in stores. The graphic pictured here is the slip cover only. Due to all these special protective measures this edition is strictly limited to initial orders.

Also available with Retailer Incentive covers of Red Crossed and Design Sketch, showing the original works of series artist Gabriel Andrade. Don’t miss out on the ultra-rare CGC Numbered Edition as well!
