Chanting "Om Mani Padme Hum," the wealthy Jethro Dumont transformed into the Green Lama -- a flying freedom fighter made famous in comics by artist Mac Raboy (Captain Marvel Jr., Flash Gordon). A unique 1940s Buddhist superhero, the Green Lama used special powers gained in a pilgrimage to Tibet to fight master criminals, monstrous dictators, and inequality across the globe. He made his debut in April 1940 in the pulp fiction anthology Double Detective, but he is most well known in his comic book incarnation -- especially the stories drawn by Raboy in the eight-issue Green Lama series. Dark Horse Archives presents the entire Green Lama run in two high-quality hardcovers, starting with these first four issues. In addition to Raboy's classic covers and stories, these issues contain entertaining and adventurous bonus stories following the adventures of Lieutenant Hercules, Rick Masters, Angus McErc, and others!

Sculpted by Steve Kiwus, painted by Kat Sapene, with participation from Glenn Barr.

In the past ten years, an exciting new world of limited-edition "designer toys" has exploded worldwide. Tracing its roots to the Hong Kong toy scene in the late 1990s, this phenomenon refers to unique figures, produced in very limited editions, that are three-dimensional works inspired by contemporary artists. One of the best of these artists is Glenn Barr.

A primary theme in Glenn's work is his "Janes" series, which are stylized young women in retro-looking space ships. We have gone to great lengths to reproduce these in 3D, and are proud to announce the result -- four different pieces, our first offering is Tika. Tika's fiery red hair, green eyes, and deep red lips speak of anarchy and confusion.

The manufacturing process involved includes roto-cast vinyl, injected plastic, and "blow-molding", making these figures some of the most ambitious produced to date.

Tika: Muse of Destruction, approximately 6" tall x 5" wide, limited to 500 pieces, $150, in stores on May 14.
