Steel Harbor is a hell of a town, with the emphasis on hell, an urban wasteland of shuttered factories, decaying neighborhoods, and broken dreams. Crime and street violence are the soup of the day every day, but if you're a bounty hunter, every day in "Metal City" can be Christmas -- assuming you survive, since the worst of the Harbor's most wanted can fly, summon up tornadoes, or tear cars in half with their bare hands. But a skip's a skip, and manhunter Barb Wire is the best tracker in the business, and no super-gangster is too tough -- as long as there's a fat price on his, her, or its head. Beautiful as she is lethal, Barb Wire really puts the "drop dead" in drop-dead gorgeous. Her boots may be made for walking, but they kick butt real pretty too.

Barb Wire Omnibus collects all the original Dark Horse Barb Wire tales, including the never-before-collected Ace of Spades series.

What if you had a magical superpower and it hated your guts?

Matt Blurdy's day has gone from crap to worse. Not only did his girlfriend break his heart at work -- and in front of all of the video-store patrons -- but he just got fired. All that's left to do is minibike his sorry, thirty-year-old (and freshly unemployed!) butt back home to his mom's basement and drown his sorrows in a bucket of extra crispy chicken while contemplating where his life went wrong.

On the way home, Matt decides to quiet his aching heart with a brief detour to a garage sale. When an ancient-looking helmet calls to him as "the Chosen One," exhorting him to don the mantle of the "Valhalladrim," Matt touches it with trembling fingers -- and is jolted by raw magical power. Holy crap! Is he going to be a superhero? Is this why he always felt special even when everyone else thought he was a loser? Then the helm gets a sense of whom it's dealing with. Suddenly, it changes its tune: "I was mistaken. You are not the chosen one. Good day."

But for once in his life, Matt's not taking no for an answer. Not today.

When Griswell left the Blassenville Mansion those many years ago, he couldn't have imagined the horrors that would eclipse the ones he saw then--but there's far more to fear in the darkness of this twisted old house than ominous, shape-shifting shadows and zombies!
