Crossed: Badlands #84

Convinced by Morgan and Olivia that their food source could  either be compromised or possibly even be the source of whatever started the Crossed epidemic, the bridge dwellers begin to re-think their survival strategy, and select a “procurement team” to venture to the ground in the search for supplies and untainted food. But having lived in the relative safety that the collapsed bridge provides since the beginning of the outbreak, can the team possibly be prepared for what they will find down on the ground, among the roving gangs of Crossed? Available with Regular Cover by Christian Zanier, Wraparound & Torture Covers by Raulo Caceres, C-Day Worldwide Cover by German Nobile, Art Deco Cover by Michael Dipascale, and Red Crossed Incentive Cover alsoby Zanier

Providence #4

Alan Moore’s horror event of the year continues to push the limits of the comic book medium with an incredible ad-free 40 page fourth issue!  Robert Black’s journey into the heart of the USA in 1919 continues as he finds the citizens of Salem to be most interesting. This work has been researched and developed by Moore and Burrows over the course of several years.  The end result is an amazing tome of Lovecraftian influenced nightmares where Moore has written every cover, every single page, and every nuance of this work to create his most fully-realized vision to date.  Fans of Moore’s immersive style and meticulous grasp of storytelling will be thrilled to add this essential piece of comics history to their collections!  Available with Regular, Pantheon, Portrait, Dreamscape Wraparound, Women of HPL, and a special Ancient Tome Incentive cover, all by collaborator Jacen Burrows.

War Stories #12

Hayes and Aitken’s private war is suddenly interrupted, as the gentlemen of Germany’s Waffen SS take a hand. Captured and brutally interrogated, the future seems bleak for the two young Irishmen- but the battle about to begin will eclipse their fears and feuds completely. A stand is taken against the greater enemy, in the third and final part of Our Wild Geese Go. Available with Regular & Wraparound Covers by Tomas Aria, and Good Girl Nose Art & Battle Damage Retailer Incentive Covers by Matt Martin.
