THE WILD STORM TP VOL 01

(W) Warren Ellis (A) Jon Davis-Hunt (CA) Jim Lee, Scott Williams

New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, THE AUTHORITY) returns to reset the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and more in this volume collecting issues #1-6 of the hit series. Everyone is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of a skyscraper. Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she's buried in her own body - is the only person who can save him.
What she doesn't know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history.

THE WILD STORM #8

(W) Warren Ellis (A) Jon Davis-Hunt (CA) Jim Lee, Scott Williams

Jacob Marlowe told Angie Spica that he isn't from around here. He is, in fact, from a long way away. And the story of how he and his friends got here is probably the oldest secret on Earth. The Wild Storm cosmology begins here.
Also, nobody has stopped trying to kill Angie Spica, and I.O. Chief Analyst Jacklyn King just had the worst and most brilliant idea of her life.

Warren Ellis helms the first of what could potentially be a line of stand alone hardcovers that aim to blend the best of both the movie and comic world together in one gloriously violent and shiny package! After Ellis' last run on the Secret Avengers, I'm really excited to see what he is capable of doing with the Avenger's big 3!!

BALLISTIC #2

(W) Adam Egyt Mortimer (A) Darick Robertson

 This madcap sci-fi buddy adventure about a wanna-be bank robber and his best-friend Gun, a drug-addicted, foul-mouthed, living gun, marks Darick Robertson's return to the hard sci-fi worldbuilding of his classic Transmetropolitan mixed with The Boys' ultra-violence and the lunacy of Happy.

TEN GRAND #1

(W) J. Michael Straczynski  (A) Ben Templesmith

Joe Fitzgerald was a mob enforcer until the day he met Laura, who convinced him to leave that world behind. Before quitting, Joe agreed to one last job, little realizing that the man he'd been sent to kill was deeply involved in demonlogy. He survived Joe's attempt and came after him, fatally wounding Joe and killing Laura. As he lay dying, an angelic force (who may or may not be what she appears) pointed out that where she is going, he can't follow, and where he is going, he wouldn't want her to follow. But if he will agree to work for them as a different kind of enforcer, they will bring him to life and keep on bringing him to life every time he is killed in a righteous cause. The reward: for those five minutes of death, he will be with Laura again. Would you endure an eternity of pain and death, dying over and over, to be with the woman you love for just five minutes each time you died? Most people might say no. But Joe Fitzgerald isn't most people.

A bold new era begins with the long-anticipated return of Joe's Comics, the imprint that brought you MIDNIGHT NATION and RISING STARS. All-new stories from J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI (Babylon 5, Jeremiah, Thor, Amazing Spider-Man, Superman: Earth One) return in 2013 with an action packed line up featuring everything from superhero action to supernatural thrillers. Watch this space as a new wave of exciting, challenging and experimental stories begins!
