RADICAL PUBLISHING FOR JANUARY

ALADDIN: LEGACY OF THE LOST #1

Written by Ian Edginton, art by Patrick Reilly and Stjepan Sejic, covers by Marko Djurdjevic, Arthur Suydam and Clayton Crain.

From the mystical city of Shambhalla to the ends of the Earth comes a tale of magic, mystery and the motivations of power. It is the world of Ala ad-Din, better known as Aladdin.

Thief, gambler, liar and cheat, Aladdinšs reckless soul falls under the eye of the sorcerer Maugrah, who has spent his life scouring the sands for the Dreaming Jewel. This lost relic of shattering power will enable Maugrah to steal the magic of the Djinn of the Lamp and reshape the world in his own malicious design. But to do so, he requires a mystical ability carried within Aladdin's blood...power that not even Aladdin himself knows about. An epic adventure that twists the classic saga into dark, unexplored territories!

64 pages, $4.99.

LEGENDS: THE ENCHANTED #0

Written, art and cover by Nick Percival.

Following the same standard for the debut mini-series Hercules: The Thracian Wars and Caliber: First Canon of Justice, Radical Publishing presents a special $1 introductory issue for the upcoming hardcover graphic novel by award-winning illustrator Nick Percival.

You think you know themŠ Think again!

Violently ripped from the pages of folklore emerge the Enchanted, supernatural immortals living in a dark, steampunk, creature-infested world where nature, technology and foul magic are in constant conflict. When the twisted, burnt remains of the half-wooden, half-mechanical warrior, Pinocchio are discovered, wolf-hunter Red Hood and giant-killer Jack realize the fragile rules of their existence have been shattered. With the help of the other Enchanted (the mercenary Goldilocks and psychic exterminators Hansel and Gretel), Jack and Red team up on an adventure to stop whatever, or whoever, is destroying their powers and murdering their kind.

24 pages, $1.

From the pen of Steve Moore comes a tale of Hercules in his darkest hour. When the Thracian King summons the Greek hero and his six battle-worn companions to mold the Thracian army into a bloodthirsty, ruthless killing machine, the Son of Zeus rushes to answer the call of war and gold. But within the nation of Thrace lies an epic tale of murder, deception and sacrifice that shows how far from grace hešs fallen ­ and what he must accomplish for redemption.
