AVATAR PRESS FOR JUNE

WOLFSKIN ANNUAL #1

By Warren Ellis, Mike Wolfer and Gianluca Pagliarani.

Ellis' epic barbarian saga returns! Before history was recorded in stone and ink, some men wrote it in blood. This all-new color Annual is the perfect way to hone your senses for the new Wolfskin series that begins this summer! In the world of the First Century, where broadswords, warhammers and warriors abound, a man's worth is measured by the swiftness of his reflexes and his preparedness to kill. From the far North, the roaming Wolfskin is a mercenary of unequaled might, dedicated to delivering the souls of his enemies to a blood-thirsty God. After travelling through the wooded realm of the sexy Feral Girl, Wolfskin has arrived in a bustling coastal community, where merchants and seafarers have transformed a primitive village into an economic paradise. But the architects of the seaport's prosperity wear the brands of criminals, and only Wolfskin suspects that behind the veneer of the town's thriving commerce lies a secret most vile. The tattooed Algizmen, disowned by the Gods themselves, know that Wolfskin must be destroyed before the contents of the mysterious casks that have brought the seaport its wealth are exposed! Just as they've done with the hit series Gravel, Warren Ellis as plotmaster and Mike Wolfer on script assist have teamed up to create an immersive world drawn by stellar newcomer Gianluca Pagliarani. This issue is available with a regular cover by Jacen Burrows, a wraparound by Juan Jose Ryp, a painted cover by artist Felipe Massafera, and also a rare 1-in-15 Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Gianluca.

40 pages, $4.99.

ANNA MERCURY #3

By Warren Ellis and Facundo Percio.

Warren Ellis continues to strip away the layers of mystery from the sultry Anna Mercury in his all-new color series! In the aftermath of the disaster on New Ataraxia, Anna Mercury and her employers can't be blamed for thinking things couldn't get any worse. But the cracks in New Ataraxia run deeper than anyone could imagine, and when Anna stands down from active duty and returns to her "normal" life, there's no one around to save that strange city as it slides from murderous to suicidal! A high-octane blend of The Shadow, Tomb Raider, retropunk science fiction, and 21st-century Weird Pulp Action, Anna Mercury is a headlong adventure serial about a beautiful and mysterious spy-adventurer who is not what she seems! Anna Mercury will be a series of mini-series, starting with this five-issue color series that features art by all-new talent Facundo Percio. This issue is available with a regular cover by Paul Duffield, a wraparound by Juan Jose Ryp, a painted cover by artist Felipe Massafera, and also a rare 1-in-15 Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Percio.

32 pages, $3.99.

DOKTOR SLEEPLESS #8

By Warren Ellis and Ivan Rodriguez.

Doktor Sleepless returns to a regular schedule! Heavenside has seen better days. Bodies are starting to pile up, more are starting to get sick, and all the things people have always taken for granted are starting to not work. The promises of the future may all have been broken, but the Doktor has stayed true to his word it's getting so the only constant in people's lives is the nightly Doktor Sleepless broadcast. And although that may be just how he wants it, that's what frightens Sing the most. But with everyone listening intently to the Doktor's every word, there may be no one left to listen to what she has to say! Warren Ellis' satirical-political science fiction novel continues its on-going run! The issue is available with a regular cover by series artist Ivan Rodriguez, or wraparound cover by Raulo Caceres, and also a rare 1-in-15 Future Warning Sign cover.

32 pages, $3.99.

GRAVEL #4

By Warren Ellis, Mike Wolfer and Oscar Jimenez.

Gravel, the explosive monthly series from Ellis and Wolfer, dials up the action with this all-combat magic issue! William Gravel has had a busy week hunting down and disposing of his former co-workers one after the next, to relieve them of their peices of the hideously powerful Sigsand Manuscript. Killing magicians is tiring work, and Gravel would much prefer to relax with a nice pint, but it looks like he's going to have to deal with yet another adversary, and what's worse, this one has not arrived alone! Edwin Royston has brought with him his nine acolytes, an assemblage of young magicians who are ready to serve under him once he has finished what Gravel started: eradicating the remainder of the Minor Seven, Britain's greatest Occult Magicians. Near exhaustion, hopelessly outnumbered, and low on bullets, Gravel will have to dig into his deepest supernatural reserves to make it though this night alive. And if he manages to outlive the acolytes, he'll still have to battle Royston to the death to determine the owner of the fourth section of the Sigsand! This issue is available with a regular cover by Mike Wolfer, a wraparound by new series artist Oscar Jimenez, and also a rare 1-in-15 Black Magic Edition featuring a new cover by Wolfer.

32 pages, $3.99.
