AVATAR PRESS FOR NOVEMBER


FREAKANGELS VOLUME 1 TP

By Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield.

Ellis' web comic, Freakangels, is here, collected in print for the first time in this , full-color trade paperback! The first arc of the ongoing, post-apocalyptic saga is a must-have for fans of the online series, or a perfect starting point for new readers! Twenty-three years ago, 12 strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years later, the world ended. This is the story of what happened next. So welcome to Whitechapel, some years from now, just barely above ground in a flooded England, where a clan of eleven strange people with purple eyes -- the Freakangels -- have carved out some sort of a life for themselves. A life that starts to show big cracks when a girl called Alice from Manchester turns up with a shotgun and a grievance, having met the lost, prodigal last Freakangel, who had very different ideas about what they should do with themselves and this flooded future England. Because the Freakangels have a big secret something very bad is their fault. This first collection is also available as a Hardcover edition with an all-new cover by series artist Duffield that is limited to just 2,000 copies, and a ultra-special Dual Signed Hardcover with a different cover, and each copy is signed by both Ellis and Duffield, which is limited to 1,000 copies!

DOKTOR SLEEPLESS #12

By Warren Ellis and Ivan Rodriguez.

Doktor Sleepless, by all accounts of the Heavenside media, is an all-powerful and angry god who can turn off the electricity at will, has brought angels to earth, and is remaking the city in his own image. But as each new story whips the rumors of the mad Doktor to terrifying proportions, the more frightening truth is that he may be beginning to believe his own press! 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 Future Warning Sign cover.

CROSSED #2

by Garth Ennis & Jacen Burrows

Garth Ennis has pulled out all the stops to write the most twisted book of his career, Crossed! Cindy and her small band of survivors are facing impossible odds, dwindling resources, and a dearth of options. Nothing is going right, but this is no fairy tale; there are no magic cures on the horizon. When civilization crumbles in one terrifying moment; when people are gleefully breaking into unthinkable acts of violence all around you; when everyone you love has died screaming in agony -- What do you do? There is no help. There is no hope. There is no escape. There are only the Crossed. Certain to be the most depraved and corrupt book of the year, this one is not for the faint of heart! Through ten heart-stopping chapters, Crossed is his horrifically visceral exploration of the pure evil that humans are truly capable of indulging. This gut-wrenching vision is brought to vivid (and more than a little disturbing) life by his partner in crime Jacen Burrows. This terrifying first issue is available with a Regular or Wraparound cover by Burrows as well as a rare Red Crossed Edition featuring a striking Black, White and Red cover by Burrows.

32 pages, $3.99.
