AVATAR PRESS FOR MARCH

GEORGE R.R. MARTIN'S FEVRE DREAM #1

Written by George R.R. Martin, art by Rafa Lopez, cover by Felipe Massafera.

A 10-issue vampire epic on the bayou from the writer of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels! From author George R. R. Martin comes a tale of vampire clans, death and debauchery, legendary bloodmasters, and even a few epic steamboat races on the muddy Mississippi. This is Martin's Fevre Dream, an antebellum story of power, loss, and the fever of bloodlust.

It is 1857, and Abner Marsh is a remarkably ugly man -- but the best steamboat man on the river. When the pale Joshua approaches him with a partnership and enough money to build the boat of his dreams, it seems too good to be true. But Joshua is a mystery of a partner, a man who keeps strange hours and stranger friends. It's only a matter of time before Abner begins to wonder where the Fevre Dream is heading, and if it may turn out to be a nightmare, after all.

Adapted by Daniel Abraham, this version of Fevre Dream stays faithful to Martin's original dark vision, while bringing the torture and joy of his vampires to almost-human life.

32 pages, $3.99.

CAPTAIN SWING #2

Written by Warren Ellis, art and covers by Raulo Caceres.

London, 1830: London copper Charlie Gravel is on a boat ride to hell. He's about to discover what the people above his station really do to run the country, and to find out that, among the smugglers of the Blackwater and the dark creeks of Essex, there are such things as Electrical Pirates. It is the time of Captain Swing and his Electrical Pirates, and history will never be the same.

32 pages, $3.99.

SUPERGOD #5

Written by Warren Ellis, art by Garrie Gastonny, covers by Felipe Massafera and Gastonny.

The most insane and terrifying superhumans ever conceived go into battle for no other reason than that they don't really like the look of each other and think the planet would look better if it was strewed with their enemies' intestines! Supergod ends with an apocalypse undreamed of! This is what asking to be saved by men who can fly would look like. Take every superhero comic ever published, shove them into a nuclear-powered blender, soak it in bad vodka and set the whole thing alight -- and Supergod will crawl out and eat your brain!

32 pages, $3.99.

GRAVEL #19

Written by Warren Ellis and Mike Wolfer, art and covers by Wolfer.

Ellis and Wolfer continue Volume Three "The Last King Of England": the newly formed Minor Seven are in far over their heads with the return of Bible John, and Gravel may have discovered his own powers have surprising, and inconvenient, limits. It's never a dull day being Combat Magician William Gravel.

32 pages, $3.99.
