PLAGUE OF THE LIVING DEAD #1

By John Russo and Dheeraj Verma.

The next major zombie epic starts here at a special price of just $2.50! They've been beaten, they've been burned, they've had their brains blown out... but this time, nothing will stop them!

There is no way out... no escape... and certain death looms by the rotting hands of an army of corpses. A nearby Army base holds prisoners of its own, however, as three soldiers who faced the terror of the undead plague in the jungles of Vietnam must now find a way to escape their own imprisonment before their knowledge of U.S. Government-sanctioned zombie soldiers dooms the trio to death, as well.

GARTH ENNIS' CHRONICLES OF WORMWOOD #4

By Garth Ennis and Jacen Burrows.

Garth Ennis unleashes his next major religious epic in the vein of Preacher, but this-time, he's taking it up a notch! Danny Wormwood is having all the troubles of modern man, his TV shows have issues, he cheats on his wife, and his rabbit talks back to him. But this poor sod also has to deal with the fact that his dad is Satan himself and Pope Jacko and the Catholic church are also raising Hell. Oh yeah, the Armageddon is about to start and Jesus is a right thicko, not much help there. The trio's trip to Hell has not provided the resolution they were hoping for and it looks like Satan and God are indeed heading for the final battle. Ennis drags the whole world into the gutter with his trademark razor-sharp dialogue, biting wit, and the stunning art of Jacen Burrows, all in full-color.

MORE THAN MORTAL #0

By Sharon Scott and Wellington Alves.

The fantasy series, More Than Mortal, returns to Avatar with original creator and writer Sharon Scott! In ancient Ireland, the land was riddled with both internal clan rivalries, and external invasion; it was a time of legends, great warriors, and fierce druidic magic. Although the Tuath gods no longer walked the land, their power and influence still pervaded. The battle between Man and dark Faerie had been waging for decades. The battle came to a head during a bloody siege at a temple in Kildare where Midir and his Faerie horde were devastating the Celtic army. It seemed all was lost... and that an entire people and their way of life would be destroyed. Desperate, a group of druids performed a powerful spell; a plea to the Land to protect itself. The druids gave birth to a guardian that day; a being that emulated the very essence of Ireland and its distinction: beauty, strength, independence. She was an elemental, part of the land, and bound to defend it -- she became Brigid The Protector. This book features these stunning covers: Regular, Wraparound, "Battle" and Premium by series artist Wellington Alves, and Ryp by Juan Jose Ryp!

32 pages, $3.99 (Battle cover, $3.99; wraparound cover, $3.99; Ryp cover, $3.99; Premium, $9.99).
