All the mini-comics are printed here in their entirety, and as a bonus, 20 pages of additional material.

If surviving in a neighborhood run by StreetSweeping crypt-heads, and a lawless Biker Crew isn't enough, one wicked swipe of a cursed knife has cut Blak and threatened his dream of stardom. The curse will kill him. Solve the riddle of his brother's mysterious death and he can save himself. Realize his true gift and he can save his whole community. As Blak tries to focus through the haze of smoke and bubbles, video honeys, and music industry snakes, the question is which one will win? The Gift or the Curse?

Her boss is actually a nice guy... and he's yet to come on to her. The bills are paid, she's got three weeks of paid vacation, and her car is more reliable than her husband. Everything seems fine in her life, not perfect, but fine. But all that is about to change.

The Governor is dead. Allison and her partner Darrel are on the case. Other than the fact that this is such a high profile victim, everything seems to be going by the book, until strange things start to happen. Allison finds herself wrapped up in a conspiracy of epic proportions. Friends become enemies, and enemies become allies as Allison's world is turned upside down. Will Allison survive this ordeal? And what in the hell IS "Cloudfall?" Not for the faint of heart.
