STRAY BULLETS TP VOL 01 THE INNOCENCE OF NIHILISM

(W/A) David Lapham

With the return of STRAY BULLETS, it's time to roll out the "by story arc" trades of DAVID LAPHAM's influential crime masterpiece....

These are their stories. Follow the lost lives of people who are savagely torn apart by events beyond their control. As the innocent world of an imaginative little girl is shattered when she witnesses a brutal double murder. Or an introverted young boy on the verge of manhood gets a lesson on just how far is too far when he falls for a needy woman who lives life in the fast lane. Or party with a pair of low-rent hoods who learn about what is really important in life just when they shouldn't. And even learn the story of the most infamous gangster who ever lived, Amy Racecar, who talks to God, lunches with the President, and just may be responsible for the end of the world. These are some of the tales that will rip out your guts and break your heart.

Collects STRAY BULLETS #1-7

 

This book hits you like a hollow point to the heart. With each page turn, the bullet sinks deeper and deeper...penetrating your every emotional defense until the sacred walls of your being are shattered in the anguished echo of the gun shot as it reverberates through your soul. Now, back in print after waht felt like a decade, Stray Bullets is ready to take aim at a new generation of disillusioned youths and disgruntled adults!

COPRA #18

(W/A) Michel Fiffe

Copra #18 has arrived you mother fulffers!!! it’s the Xenia issue, the magic issue, the losing your grip on reality which is inconvenient for everybody because of your godlike powers issue.

MULTIVERSITY: THE JUST #1

(W) Grant Morrison (A) Ben Oliver

The next chapter of the greatest adventure in DC's history is here!
When they last collaborated, Grant Morrison joined artist Ben Oliver (LOBO, BATMAN/SUPERMAN) for the acclaimed ACTION COMICS #0. For their next team-up, the two superstars take a spin around the self-obsessed Earth-16 - a.k.a. Earth-Me!
With all of the world's threats having been handled long ago by their parents, the next generation of supers - including Chris Kent, Damien Wayne, Alexis Luthor, Offspring, Megamorpho, Donna Troy and more - find themselves labeled as superstars more often than super heroes. But with that fame comes complacency, and when a massive threat unlike anything they've ever seen surfaces, this pampered crew finds themselves in way over their head. What secret is Damien keeping from Chris that could tear the world's finest friends apart? Who is the mysterious killer lurking behind the scenes among these spoiled super-children? And what chance do they stand against the monstrous villain that's murdering its way across the Multiverse? All that and more in this exciting stand-alone issue which also acts as chapter three of the MULTIVERSITY saga. Join us, if your dare, for THE MULTIVERSITY!

In what is supposedly his swan song performance by Mr. Morrison before hanging up his cape, the Multiversity explodes like a hyper resonated bullet-sound of Bowie screaming "heroes" throughout time and space powered by the bottomless pit of Kirby Krackle that Morrison has been huffing since the late 1980s. For the third part in the mega eipic that is Multiverstiy, we venture to a world ruled by fashion, fame, money and power; a world that reminds me of not only our own, but of the one seen in issue #2 of Final Crisis which was one of my favorite parts and I'm glad he is revisiting the concept of Super-Hero legend being pieced out, sold, commodified--a world where normal human celebrates faded out of favor...and so did heroes...

MOTHERLESS OVEN GN

(W/A) Rob Davis

In Scarper Lee's world, parents don't make children - children make parents. Scarper's father is his pride and joy, a wind-powered brass construction with a billowing sail. His mother is a Bakelite hairdryer. In this world it rains knives, and household appliances have souls. There are also no birthdays, only deathdays. Scarper's deathday is just three weeks away, and he clings to the mundane repetition of his life at home and high school for comfort. When Scarper's father mysteriously disappears, he sets off with Vera Pike (the new girl at school) and Castro Smith (the weirdest kid in town) to find him. Facing home truths and knife storms at every turn, will Scarper even survive until his deathday?

This classic, remastered collection features never-before-seen art and is the crowning glory of award-winning writer, Peter Milligan and artist Brett Ewins

On one of my trips back home to the frigid coast of the East, I came across and issue of this mind boggling series lost amongst the boxes of back issues that lined the dusty floor. It felt like I was excavating an artifact from so far in the past it might as well be from the future and with it came a message--the future was gonna be WEIRD!! Peter Milligan teams up with frequent collaborator, Brett Ewins to bring you the drugged out, action packed and of course stylishly suave adventures of JOHNNY NEMO, P.I.! This, along with the "Best of McCarthy and Milligan" book has finally captured a moment in comic history that deserves to live on forever!!!
