AVATAR PRESS FOR JANUARY
Following are Avatar Press' solicitations for January, with information coming from the company.
PULSAR PRESS TITLES
ROBOCOP: WILD CHILD #1
Written by Steven Grant, art by Carlos Ferreira, cover by Juan Jose Ryp.
Robocop and Office Lewis meet the threat they never expected -- Officer Lewis' sister! Robocop super-scribe Steven Grant and new artist Carlos Ferreira serve up this one shot story that puts Officer Lewis front-and-center of the action. A badass young woman, who calls herself Heaven, and her gang swing into Detroit to take advantage of the general lack of authority the cops are still on strike, city government might as well not exist, OCP is defunct to make their mark. They run recklessly over everyone and everything until Robocop crosses their path, and then Heaven dedicates herself to making him pay for getting in their way. This gets complicated for Lewis, because Heaven is her little sister, who, always spoiled and uncontrollable, ran away years ago. Things come to a head when Heaven traps Robocop and plans to take his head for a souvenir, and it falls to Lewis to save him, but it looks like the only way she can do that is to kill Heaven! This issue is available in regular, wraparound and Sibling Rivalry covers all by Juan Jose Ryp as well as a photo cover.
16 pages, $2.99.
AVATAR PRESS TITLES
ALAN MOORE'S HYPOTHETICAL LIZARD #2
Written by Alan Moore, art and cover by Sebastian Fiumara.
One of Alan Moore's greatest works and his most critically acclaimed novella of all time is now painstakingly adapted to comic books. Moore's frequent collaborator Antony Johnston has carefully preserved the story as it is presented in sequential form with stunning grey-painted art by new sensation Sebastian Fiumara, all under the watchful eye of Moore himself. Rawra Chin has returned to the House Without Clocks, giving up his glittering stage career for the love of his exboyfriend Foral Yatt. But it's been five years since Rawra left does Foral even want love any more? Silent observer SomSom watches the tragedy unfold, powerless to prevent it, and wonders: is there a lizard asleep inside the ball? Available in regular and wraparound covers by Fiumara.

GARTH ENNIS' 303 #4
Written by Garth Ennis, art by and covers by Jacen Burrows.
The action switches to America, and the bleak deserts of the West, where a burned-out, small-town Sheriff must come to grips with tragedy: the gruesome slaughterhouse that blights his town, and the misery that has befallen his own life. Can a broken man find the strength to face a lethal intruder in the harsh and unforgiving badlands? And what is the connection to the Russian special forces leader, as he strides ever onward on his fateful path? The answers lie in 303 issue #4. Available in regular and wraparound covers by Burrows.
