FRANK MILLER'S ROBOCOP #6

Story and cover by Frank Miller, art by Juan Jose Ryp.

The Robo-action kicks into high gear with more pure-Frank Miller insanity. Robocop is in for the fight of his life against the staggering new firepower of Robocop 2. These two metal behemoths take their conflict into the subways, and Lord help anyone else down there! Mayhem, murder and mutilation as only Frank Miller can write it. This series continues to take the original Frank Miller Robocop story and faithfully adapt it into comics form by Steven Grant in order to capture every bit of the frenzied flavor that Miller wants -- with lusciously detailed artwork by Juan Jose Ryp.

32 pages, $3.50.

AVATAR PRESS TITLES

MARK MILLAR'S THE UNFUNNIES #1

Written by Mark Millar, art by Anthony Williams, cover by Keith Giffen.

Welcome to the most depraved comic-book of the 21st century, a disturbing, four issue mini-series that blends traditional animation with photo-strip storytelling to produce one of the most compelling horror comics in years. The Unfunnies is a journey through the dark side of the human soul like Magnolia or Happiness, but told in the style of your favorite animated cartoon strips. Undoubtedly, the most uncompromising work Mark Millar has ever produced, The Unfunnies forms a pivotal part of the www.millarworld.biz December event along with Wanted from Top Cow, Run! from Image and Chosen from Dark Horse Comics. All four Millarworld titles are subtly linked and aimed at an exclusively mature readers audience.

32 pages, $3.50.

ALAN MOORE'S THE COURTYARD TPB

Written by Alan Moore, art and cover by Jacen Burrows.

A timeless tale of Lovecraftian psychological horror. FBI man Aldo Sax has an amazing service record with the FBI. His legendary skills at piercing together the most baffling of cases has gotten him assigned to what may be his most confusing case yet. Several murders, no, more like lethal dismemberments, from the most unlikely of suspects just don't add up. And what few leads there are, all point to The Courtyard. This special collected edition of the series features an introduction by Garth Ennis.

56 pages, black and white, $6.95.

ALAN MOORE'S THE COURTYARD COMPANION TPB

Written by Alan Moore, art and cover by Jacen Burrows.

The series was just the beginning of the mystery of what lurks in the Courtyard. The Courtyard Companion delves deep into the Lovecraftian roots. This volume reprints the original script it was drawn from with full annotations of all of the Lovecraftian references, over one hundred in total, painstakingly researched by scholar NG Christakos. Also included is Alan Moore's original short story the series was adapted from, several new pinups and art by series artist Jacen Burrows, and a new essay from adapter Antony Johnston.

72 pages, black and white, $9.95.

JOE LANSDALE'S THE DRIVE-IN #3

Written by Joe Lansdale, art by Andres Guinaldo, cover by Jacen Burrows.

Joe Lansdale's epic of insanity finally comes to comics and kicks into high gear with this deranged penultimate issue. All Hell breaks loose as the monstrous Popcorn King takes over. The thousands of people trapped inside the Drive-In turn into savages, or even worse, religious fanatics. But a small group of friends are holding on to their last bits of sanity, hoping to find some way out.

32 pages, black and white, $3.50 (wraparound, $3.95).

STEVEN GRANT'S MY FLESH IS COOL #1

Written by Steven Grant, art by Sebastian Fiumara, cover by Jacen Burrows.

Steven Grant finally unleashes his sci-fi / crime masterwork that has been two years in the making. Those who know him think Evan Knox nothing more than a charming slacker. But most who meet him don't know it and don't live to talk about it: he's also an unseen, unstoppable contract killer, fulfilling hits from the safety of other people's bodies. How? His secret will rock civilization, and someone's after it. Betrayed by the last person he'd expect, how can Evan save the world when he can't even save himself?

32 pages, black and white, $3.50 (wraparound, $3.95).
