I know nothing about this book. In fact, I only became aware of Ulises Farinas' work last week when the mind blowing Catalyst Comix dropped and at the top of the "OH SH*T" meter was this man's story about glam rock gangsters!! That's right, we're talking some Bowie shit here, people, and from the looks of this cover, we've only seen the tip of the psychedelic monster mound.

(W) Joe Casey (A) Mike Huddleston

THE SUPERHEROIC PERVERSION OF THE DECADE - NOW IN AN OVERSIZED HARDCOVER EDITION! At one time, Butcher Baker was the preeminent, All-American superhero. Now he's... getting laid. A lot.

LOADED WITH ALL-NEW BACKMATTER MATERIAL!

Get ready for the most in your face, balls to the wall, sexually charged super-hero comic of the year as Butcher Baker explodes in your face with an all new, all complete, all HUGE hardcover! This is the energy and stupidity lacking in almost all mainstream super-hero books-- the unadulterated, unfiltered, raw power inherent in the genre and I give thanks to Casey and Huddleston for reminding me why I love super-hero books with their beacon of pure mayhem for my drug addled brain to drool over! RECOMMENDED BY CASEY!

This slice of Americana is brought to you by the twisted minds of JOE CASEY and the legendary STEVE PARKHOUSE. If you missed it the first time around, this is your chance to finally join the Tupperware party!

"A truly disturbing and original piece of horror... not for the faint of heart or those looking for spoon-fed niceties, The Milkman Murders is comics as you've rarely seen them before.
Totally unsettling and wonderfully creepy, this is one the most unsung and overlooked books that Joe Casey has ever done. One day in the life of a battered housewife changes her forever when she is paid a visit by the local 'milkman'. Things deteriorate from there as her drug addict husband and psychotic child push her to the breaking point where the only release is to succumb to her darkest desires! RECOMMENDED BY CASEY!

(W) Joe Casey  (A) Nathan Fox

It's mayhem on the streets of Manhattan! A relentless creature of fury andfire running amok! Only Haunt can save the city from an apocalyptic end! But at what cost? The new nightmare rolls on in 2012!

Proof that there are no bad ideas, just boring creators, Joe Casey and Nathan Fox have turned this book into one of the most exciting and intense books on the stands! Using a kaleidoscope of color, mixed with Paul Pope-esque brush work, Fox is able to translate Casey's madcap ideas of biblical fury and roll it up into one fatty blunt of psychedelic insanity!
