Written by Warren Ellis, art by Facundo Percio.

Ellis introduces readers to the sultry Anna Mercury in this collection of first action-packed series! Dancing amid the spires of a city called New Ataraxia, there is a woman who can cloud men's minds, leap across buildings as if weightless, unerringly fire twin automatic pistols in the most insane conditions, and disappear in a crowded room. She fights against the political repression of an insane technocratic society, and she comes from a place that no-one in New Ataraxia has ever heard of. And she's got one hour to save the city from itself. A high-octane blend of The Shadow, Tomb Raider, retro-punk 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 Volume 1 features all five of the original issues with art by Percio as well as a special super-sized cover gallery! Available in a standard Softcover and a limited edition Hardcover, of just 2,000 copies, both with fully painted covers by Felipe Massafera.

144 pages, softcover, $19.99; 144 pages, hardover, $27.99.

Combat Magician William Gravel is getting a bit out of his depth in this second story arc of his ongoing series! Someone's lying to William Gravel. Usually, when that happens, they die horribly soon after. But Gravel is now one of the kings of magic in Britain, and the liar is one of his peers -- someone he could not possibly kill. Someone who could very possibly kill him. Not the best time for Gravel to bump into an old enemy -- whom he's actually never met! He never did find the person behind a very strange prostitution operation he was obliged to close down in Los Angeles a few years ago. Someone who was selling some Stranger Kisses to very powerful people. A very bad time for William Gravel to be targeted by a kill-team of prime gunmen from California. 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.

Written by Jamie Delano, art by Max Fiumara.

Jamie Delano cuts loose on a vicious pirate tale, delivering a bloody, terrifying vision of a world on the high-seas! But these are not the family friendly kind, these are the roughneck, stealing, heartless bastards of the 17th century Caribbean. A rebellious young women named La Sirena has built a haven for pirates called Puerto de los Suenos (Port of Dreams). It is a good life for those that want to live outside of the crushing boot heel of the Church of England. But the church is a powerful enemy. It expends a lot of its pillaged wealth to bring about the downfall of the pirate scum who are preying upon merchant vessels. Thus, the legend of La Sirena's life will begin, one drip of blood at a time, while the British garrison waits for the pirate to slip into their ambush, tension building as seeming supernatural forces pick off the forces of law one by one, and imagination runs terror through the survivor's veins. Available with a regular cover fully-painted by Felipe Massafera and a wraparound by Max Fiumara.
