But a simple trip to the mall goes horribly awry, and when Eve goes haywire it's up to her newfound friends to calm her down, or shut her down!

Written and art by Rob Reger, Buzz Parker and Cosmic Debris.

In her 13-plus years in existence, oddballs, outcasts, and art freaks the world over have grown to know and love a strange young girl named Emily. With roots in the punk-rock art scene of Santa Cruz skate culture and an early appeal to European trend spotters, the iconic image of Emily and her philosophy of devout individualism have become deeply rooted in global culture.

The Art of Emily Volume 1 is the first-ever collection of images showing the wide and inspired range of artistic styles and mediums that have been used to create the world of Emily the Strange. From silk-screened vinyl skateboard stickers to custom rock-and-roll album art, large-scale psychedelic paintings, and insanely intricate Mongolian paper cutting, the fantastic and artful imaginings of Rob Reger, Buzz Parker, and a staggeringly talented array of collaborators will give insight and inspiration to any Emily fan.

Written Bruce Jones and Steven Grant, art by John Buscema, Ernie Chan, Marc Silvestri, Alfredo Alcala and Val Mayerik.

Taking over writing duties on Conan the Barbarian in the early 1980s, Bruce Jones brought his humor and horror sensibilities -- as well as his knack for telling great short stories -- to the title, invigorating John Buscema, who returned to work on the series with Conan #136. In The Chronicles of Conan: Isle of the Dead and Other Stories, these two comic-book titans lead Conan on a thrilling tour of Hyboria -- from the monster-infested Bossonian Marshes to the hideous slave markets of Belthem -- as Conan encounters strange, supernatural foes, beguiling women, and overconfident rulers.

Stories like "The River of Death," "Titan's Gambit," and the two-part "Spider Isle" adventure are meticulously restored and recolored, and Jones and Buscema are joined by such talents as Ernie Chan, Mark Silvestri, Val Mayerik, Alfredo Alcala and others.

This volume collects Conan the Barbarian issues #135 to #142, including all original series covers.

Outnumbered and facing an army fueled by a zealous, reborn Stygian wizard, simply surviving may be the greatest victory Conan can hope for.

Without giving anything away, suffice it to say that this might be the watershed volume of Gantz. It's the end of the great Buddha battle, and it doesn't seem to be going well. In fact, it would be amazing if anyone returned to the locked apartment overlooking Tokyo tower. It's really been the worst fight yet. But there's got to be a gleam of hope somewhere.

Also in this story, we meet a few more interesting characters outside of Gantz's hunting party, and it only adds more mystery to the mix.

Two hundred years ago, Britain lost the Napoleonic War and fell under the thumb of French domination. Gaining independence after decades of civil disobedience and anarchist bombings, the Socialist Republic of Britain is now a small, unimportant backwater connected by a railway bridge, steam-powered dirigible, and mutual suspicion to France. When a British diplomat's murder is made to look like suicide, ferocious Detective-Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard stalks a ruthless murder squad through the heart of a Belle Epoque Paris, the center of the greatest empire in a world of steam-driven hansom cabs, automatons, and flying machines. LeBrock's relentless quest can lead only to death, truth . . . or war.

Collecting material from Destroyer Duck #1, Starslayer #5, Pacific Comics's Groo the Wanderer #1-#8, Eclipse Comics's Groo the Wanderer Special #1, and Epic's The Groo Chronicles #1-#6.

The stories are legendary, the characters unforgettable, the world horrible and disturbing. Howard Phillips Lovecraft may have been a writer for only a short time, but the creations he left behind after his death in 1935 have shaped modern horror more than any other author's in the last two centuries: the shambling god Cthulhu, and the other deities of the Elder Things, the Outer Gods, and the Great Old Ones, and Herbert West, Reanimator, a doctor who unlocked the secrets of life and death at a terrible cost.

In Lovecraft Unbound, more than 20 of today's most prominent writers of literature and dark fantasy tell stories set in or inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft.

Among the contributors are multiple New York Times best-selling authors Michael Chabon and Joyce Carol Oates, award-winning writers Brian Evenson and Marc Laidlaw, Caitlín R. Kiernan, and many others. Edited by multiple-award-winning editor Ellen Datlow.

Written by Eerie Von.

From the deepest depths of punk rock's 1970s primordial wastelands, through the stygian goth swamps of the 1980s, and on into the bloodstained arenas of 1990s heavy metal, Eerie Von witnessed it all. Beginning as the unofficial photographer for punk legends The Misfits and later taking charge of the bass guitar as a founding member of underground pioneers Samhain and metal gods Danzig, the evil eye of Eerie Von's camera captured the dark heart of rock's most vital and bleeding-edge period, a time when rock and roll was not only dangerous, but downright menacing. Eerie Von's lens has documented everything from The Misfits' humble beginnings in Lodi, New Jersey, to the heights of Danzig's stadium-rock glory alongside metal superstars Metallica. As well as an essential visual document of music history, Eerie's road stories of triumph and damnation bring to life an era the likes of which will never again be seen.

An essential historical photographic document of some of the most influential bands of punk, goth, and rock by Eerie Von. Features over 250 photos and a full-color tip-in poster!

In olden times, when mankind was less enlightened, it was thought that exposure to the light of the Moon could cause a person to go insane. This ailment was called "Lunacy." Fortunately we're not so backward anymore. We know that there's nothing to fear from the Moon or the light reflected from its surface. In fact, we now know that the Moon is a place of tranquility and serene beauty. A place where vampires swarm hungrily over the surface of the dark side. A place where werewolves are free to roam, snarling and gnashing, without fear of turning human again. And a place where humans can cower in fear as the resident vampires and werewolves try to slaughter one another, turning the lunar dust red with the blood of monster and innocent alike!
