By Warren Ellis and Gianluca Pagliarani.

The newest addition to Warren Ellis' Apparat line of original graphic novels has arrived! The year is 1907, and Britain has entered into a terrifying war with Ruritania, whose strange metal planes darken the skies, and whose monstrous war engines cast looming shadows from across the channel. Doctor Robert Watcham, lately returned to London from the front, makes his homecoming to Dilke Street. There lives his old friend, and England's greatest amateur detective, Sax Raker. Even as his beloved city prepares for war, Raker is himself about to embark on the strangest, and perhaps the most important, investigation of his career -- the case of the man who wasn't there. This is no simple matter of murder; Sax Raker faces haunting questions to which there are no cut-and-dried answers. Is the mysterious killer, at last, evidence for Raker's long-held belief in a secret criminal mastermind? Is it some apparition uniquely belonging to this singular city, a place that seems to have lost all semblance of sense two years ago? Or do all the signs point to something much, much worse? This may very well be the last case for our Raker: a spinning tale of mystery, a tangled story of science, a twisting account of thwarted love, a fleeting glimpse into the aetheric mechanics of the world itself -- and, of course, death.

48 pages, black and white, $6.99.


By Warren Ellis and Juan Jose Ryp.

An exciting new universe that explodes into action in this zero chapter. In 1966, a group of superhumans emerged in San Francisco, guided by the man whose unique new drugs gave them their incredible powers. Calling themselves The Levellers, this unified front stood against street crimes and corruption, in defense of their city against any and all assault. Years have passed, and we fast-forward through the tumultuous events of those early years to today, where the idealistic Levellers have gone through four incarnations to become The Front Line. But the team is not the only thing that's advanced over the years, and there are no easy victories when their luck finally begins to run out! This #0 issue is not a preview, it features the essential first chapter of the story and is available with a Regular or Wraparound cover by Ryp, as well as a rare 1-in-15 Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Ryp.

16 pages, $1.

By Warren Ellis, Mike Wolfer and Oscar Jimenez.

After his victory in a frenzied battle to the death with Edwin Royston and nine powerful Combat Magicians, William Gravel travels to the remote English countryside to collect the spoils of his personal war: the grand Shockham Hall and the fourth piece of the Sigsand Manuscript. Retrieving this section of the most powerful Occult tome ever written will not be easy, however, because there is something in the woods leading to Shockham Hall, and something in the black skies above that thunders down with Apocalyptic fury. These are the riders of the dead, and a beaten and exhausted William Gravel is about to become the prey in the legendary Wild Hunt! 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.
