In the long-awaited third collection of the bestselling, award-winning masterpiece Dicks, beloved heroes Dougie and Ivor find themselves with a chance to change history- by traveling through time to defeat a deadly threat to their hometown of Belfast. But dark forces emerge to defend the great Icons of Ulster Bigotry- and with long-time enemies Lord Bluevein of the Dong and Satan himself in the mix, what hope have our bumbling private eyes of getting out alive, never mind saving the day? Garth Ennis and John McCrea wind up the greatest comic book saga of all time, in the magnificent Dicks: To The End of Time, Like.

MR, Color, 160 pages

With the realization that the Nazis have pulled far ahead of the Allies in development Ubers, hope starts to fade and some greater gambles are taken in hopes of turning the tide. Desperation is the currency of the hour with no end in sight to the horrors of enhanced human warfare. Kieron Gillen, Daniel Gete, and Caanan White spin a new chapter of fear and genocide in the pages of the most devastating war coming being published. And the origin and first missions of Sieglinde and the German Battleships are declassified and illustrated by Gabriel Andrade! The German war machine has been developing the most powerful weapons ever fashioned. Their Battleship class Ubers are like living atom bombs annihilating every obstacle in their paths. But they were once humans, and it takes more than power to make a monster, so what could have forged such cold, murderous beasts? The past is revealed as we see the genesis of the German Battleships in this groundbreaking alternate history war story! This volume collects issues #18 – 22 of the ongoing Uber comic book series and the Uber 2014 Special.

CROSSED +100 #7
Price: $3.99
Cover: Gabriel Andrade
Writer: Simon Spurrier

MR, Color, 32 pages, monthly

A new chapter in Alan Moore’s future Crossed world begins here with his hand-picked successor – Simon Spurrier! Based on the vast world-building notes from Alan Moore, the author of Crossed: Wish You Were Here continues the dystopian narrative based 100 years after C-Day.

After the shocking revelations and atrocities of last issue, Future had to make some hard choices. Now we catch up with her a few years later as Spurrier continues the outline of the intricately detailed world that sprung from the mind of Alan Moore. Several special themed covers continue to enrich the series:

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 Wires – The Crossed just don’t see or make things the same way a person would, these images celebrate that day-to-day madness .

Disastered – These will show how America has changed since the original Crossed outbreak.

Horrific Homage – What if the Crossed were there from the very beginning of comics? This edition will be an Homage to a great Golden Age cover.

Wishful Fiction – The evolution of science-fiction would have been very different with the Crossed as we show you here!

Available with Regular & American History X Wraparound Covers by Gabriel Andrade, Crossed Wires & Disastered Covers by Christian Zanier, Horrific Homage Cover by Michael DiPascale, Wishful Fiction and a Red Crossed Retailer Incentive Cover by Andrade.
