The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have been disbanded and disavowed, and the country is under the control of an iron-fisted regime. Now, after many years, the still youthful Mina Murray and a rejuvenated Allan Quatermain return in search of some answers -- answers that can only be found in a book buried deep in the vaults of their old headquarters -- a book that holds the key to the hidden history of the League throughout the ages: The Black Dossier. As Allan and Mina delve into the details of their precursors, some dating back centuries, they must elude their dangerous pursuers who are hellbent on retrieving the lost manuscript...and ending the League once and for all.

The Black Dossier is an elaborately designed, cutting-edge volume that includes a "Tijuana Bible" insert and a 3-D section complete with custom glasses, as well as additional text pieces, maps, and a stunning cutaway double-page spread of Captain Nemo's Nautilus submarine by Kevin O'Neill.

An original hardcover collection written by Fables creator Bill Willingham set in the early days of Fabletown, long before the Fables series began! Featuring sequences illustrated by Charles Vess, Brian Bolland, John Bolton, Michael Wm. Kaluta, James Jean, Mark Buckingham, Jill Thompson and more, 1,001 Nights of Snowfall is both an entry point to the critically acclaimed series and an essential part of Willingham's enchanting and imaginative Fables mythos.

Traveling in Arabia as an Ambassador from the exiled Fables community, Snow White is captured by the local sultan who wants to marry her (and then kill her). But the clever Snow attempts to charm the sultan instead by playing Scheherazade, telling him fantastic stories for a total of 1,001 nights. Running the gamut from horror to dark intrigue to mercurial coming-of-age, Fables: 1,001 Nights of Snowfall reveals the secret histories of familiar Fables characters through a series of compelling and visually illustrative tales.

Written by Harvey Pekar, art by Dean Haspiel, Ty Templeton, Hilary Barta, Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm, c over by Glenn Fabry.

Following the success of his graphic novel The Quitter, Harvey Pekar returns to Vertigo with an all-new 4-issue American Splendor mini-series, celebrating 30 years of the series that first showed how, as Harvey says, "ordinary life can be pretty complex stuff." First appearing in 1976, American Splendor rose "from the streets of Cleveland" to change the way comics readers and creators viewed the potential of their medium. The series won an American Book Award and became an Oscar-nominated film.

In Vertigo's American Splendor, Harvey is joined by an all-star roster of artists from both indie and mainstream comics. The first issue features Quitter artist Dean Haspiel illustrating "The Day's Highlights," while Ty Templeton portrays Harvey's account of his relationship with his parents after the events of The Quitter. Also in this issue, American Splendor veterans Greg Budgett and Gary Dumm depict Harvey's struggles with an acerbic flight attendant and Hilary Barta shows us what Harvey considers a "delicacy."

Now, three decades after his self-published debut, Harvey Pekar proves that while his life has changed, his ability to find the exceptional in the everyday has only grown better with time.

Written by Hitori Nakano, art by Wataru Watanabe.

The Japanese mega-hit that weaved a tale of love in cyberspace on both television and as a motion picture finally arrives in the U.S. for the first time. Perpetual geek, social basket case and obsessive fan -- needless to say, the guy called "Train Man" has never had a girlfriend. Most of his days are spent immersed in electronics and waiting for the box set DVD of his favorite anime series.

But fate takes a turn for Train one ordinary night on an ordinary train ride. He falls in love at first sight with Hermess, a gorgeous fellow passenger. When a drunken rider tries to harass her, Train surprises himself by coming to her rescue. But when Hermess later contacts Train with a thank you give and the possibility of further contact, that's one situation he can't handle.

He immediately goes online to a popular chat room to solicit advice. To his horror, he's encouraged to ask her out. Soon he is bombarded with advice regarding how, when and where he should do it. Will Train Man find true love, or will all this pressure to come out of his shell be too much for him to take?

Based on a supposedly true story, the tale of Densha Otoko (The Train Man) was a phenomenon in Japan.
