Saya must then travel to the Lands of the Four Seasons and apologize to the Gods of Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring directly in order for her home and her people to survive.

By Joe Casey and Chris Burnham.

Black and white original graphic novel. Nixon Cooper works for the California Board of Parole Hearings. He's a parole officer. For super-villains. His job consists of daily interactions with dangerously super-powered ex-cons like the Bricklayer, Sputter Kane, Maxfield Reactor, the Fever, Dr. Hugo Blivion and Dynomoxie, to name but a few. Some of them are actively trying to reform. Some of them aren't. Not to mention the fact that his wife is sleeping with one of them, an awkward discovery that leads Nixon on a twisted journey of self-examination and bone- crunching underworld action. A darkly comedic crime story about how one man copes with the scum of the Earth. And his parolees at large.

CHARLATAN'S BALL By Joe Casey and Andy Suriano.

Monthly ongoing series. What curls your toes more than an otherworldly trip to Chaotica? Maybe a visit to Emberland, the ultimate hot zone? Could a pit stop at the ominous Thunder Bay top them all? Failed stage magician, Chuck Amok, is about to find out. When he's snatched out of his own sad existence to represent humanity in a cross-dimensional, magical death match, Chuck -- along with his faithful pet rabbit, Caesar -- is ill-equipped to deal with his new "opponents": insanely powerful beings like Cumberdunst, Donnarama, and Demon Empty. Throw in mind- blowing concepts like the mystery of Elementality, the Gang of Four Gods, and the secret art of Calculingus and you'll find there's a lot to absorb. Each issue will be a surreal day trip through countless worlds turned inside-out, rave ups beyond the measure of time, altered states of being, and furious smackdowns that will shake the foundations of reality.
