By Warren Ellis and Marek Oleksicki.

The newest addition to Warren Ellis' Apparat line of original graphic novels has arrived! 1816 was called "The Year Without A Summer." In the weird darkness of that July's volcanic winter, Mary Wollestonecraft Godwin began writing Frankenstein on the shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. But that is not where Frankenstein began. It began a few months earlier when, en route through Germany to Switzerland, Mary, her future husband Percy Shelley, and her stepsister Clair Clairmont approached a strange castle. Castle Frankenstein, some one hundred years earlier, had been home to Johann Conrad Dippel, whose experiments included the independent invention of nitroglycerin, a distillation of the elixir of life -- and the transfer of a live soul into an awful accretion of human body parts. Mary never spoke of having entered the real Castle Frankenstein, stark on its hilltop south of Darmstadt. But she did. And she was never the same again -- because something was haunting that tower, and Mary met it there. Fear, death and alchemy -- the modern age is created here, in lost moments in a ruined castle on a day never recorded. Following up the huge successes of Crecy and Aetheric Mechanics, Ellis turns his spark of mad genius to bring us a fantastical tale in this all new original graphic novel illustrated in atmospheric perfection by newcomer Marek Oleksicki.

By Warren Ellis, Mike Wolfer and Oscar Jimenez.

Combat Magician William Gravel is back in this second story arc of his ongoing series! SAS Sergeant Major and combat magician William Gravel can be a cold and efficient killing machine, but it's usually just a job -- very few things make him kill in anger. But one of those things is being cheated, and the Major Seven, the kings and queens of magic in England, have cheated him. He thought they wanted him to join them because he had impressed them. Now he knows he was brought in to solve a mystery -- one of them died at the hands of another member of the group, and he's to find out who. Someone's going to get a kicking. The fact that they're all far more dangerous than him doesn't seem to bother him! This issue is available with a regular or wraparound cover by Mike Wolfer, and also a rare Black Magic Edition featuring a new cover by Wolfer.

32 pages, $3.99.


By Warren Ellis and Juan Jose Ryp.

Warren Ellis and Juan Jose Ryp, the team behind the fan-favorite Black Summer, are revolutionizing masked heroes yet again in the hottest new series of the summer! Josh Carver is now a member of The Front Line, the only group of superhumans in the world. He's given up everything to get here, and he thinks he's paid the full price of admission. But now, he must be inducted into the most closely-held secrets in the world -- the true history of The Front Line, and the things the group have done under cover of darkness. He's being pulled in deeper than he'd imagined, and with every new answer he's being forced to re-examine how much he can really trust his new teammates. But more importantly -- can the team really trust him? This fatal fourth issue ratchets up the tension and is available with a Regular or Wraparound cover by Ryp, as well as a rare Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Ryp.

By Christos Gage and Roberto Viacava.

Super-star writer Christos Gage gets to cuts loose with his first series at Avatar with a seven issue epic that kicks off here with a specially priced #0! John Dusk is a man of honor. He has been fighting crime inside the rules of the law. He respects the laws he's been sworn to uphold. But day after day, bringing in the same scum, and watching the revolving door of justice, there comes a time when a man is pushed too far. When you're bound by rules that the bad guys ignore, when the criminals are going free, when the worst kind of man is loosed on the world, when do you finally take a stand? Where do you draw the line between being the good guy, and getting the job done -- for good? Absolution is the story of masked heroes pushed to the brink, standing on their own, and against their best friends. Sometimes, a man just needs killing. This first chapter of the story features a standard cover by Jacen Burrows and a Wraparound cover by Juan Jose Ryp.

16 pages, $1.99.


By Garth Ennis and 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. Forced to keep moving, the group travels from one small town to the next, encountering only a handful of remaining humans in the midst of the Crossed outbreak. But the dire state of society has forced some people to do horrible things -- and the few humans left may be capable of greater evils than the Crossed themselves. What can Cindy turn a blind eye to, and what must be stopped, at any cost? 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. This gut-wrenching vision is brought to vivid (and more than a little disturbing) life by his partner in crime Jacen Burrows. This terrifying third 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.
