WOLFSKIN: HUNDREDTH DREAM #2

Written by Warren Ellis and Mike Wolfer, art by Gianluca Pagliarani, covers by Pagliarani, Juan Jose Ryp and Felipe Massafera.

Before history was recorded in stone and ink, some men wrote it in blood! Ellis and Wolfer, the writing team on Gravel, unveil the next six-issue barbaric epic of Wolfskin, this time joined by Gianluca Pagliarani, the star artist of Ignition City! An archer. A magician. A machine-smith. And to lead them, a berserker warrior whose name lives in infamy: Wolfskin. Having assembled this rag-tag group of scoundrels and outcasts as a strike force to save his former home, Ildsen the fire mage and his compatriots-for-hire embark on their quest to the frozen High Northish Plains. Besieged by an enormous beast dispensing horrific, burning death in its wake, Ildsen hopes to not only save the village of Va, but to find a lasting peace, and a place where magic is still vital in an ancient world on the cusp of mechanical innovation. When the beast once again descends upon Va, the heroic rescuers realize that the fiery behemoth devouring the terror-stricken villagers is more than they could have ever imagined, but Wolfskin vows that if the demon possesses blood, it will be spilled! This all-new, full-color six issue series is available with several historic covers. Series artist Pagliarani provides the Regular and Wraparound covers, maestro Felipe Massafera delivers the lush Painted cover, super-star artist Juan Jose Ryp serves up the violent Blood Thirst cover, and retailers are able to order a super-limited Bronze & Blood edition.

32 pages, $3.99.

CROSSED: FAMILY VALUES #1

Written by David Lapham, art by Javier Barreno, covers by Jacen Burrows, Javier Barreno and Juan Jose Ryp.

Nothing is sacred as Crossed returns! The horror series of the year returns with a new six-issue series written by David Lapham! Set right at the start of the Crossed outbreak, this tale of depravity promises to shock and disturb you with even more intensity than the first series! The Pratt family lived an idyllic life on a horse ranch in North Carolina. A few generations of family working, living, and learning together. But not all things should be shared with, nor done to, other human beings. Much less your own family. Some men are just born evil, some men are turned Crossed. But which is worse? Imagine, for a moment, the worst crimes against humanity. Picture the cruelest affronts to decency. Conjure your darkest nightmares... and then realize it could all be so much worse. 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. Crossed: Family Values #1 is available with a Regular cover by Jacen Burrows, a Wraparound cover by series artist Javier Barreno, a Torture cover by Juan Jose Ryp, and a special rare Red Crossed retailer incentive.

32 pages, $3.99.

FEVRE DREAM #3

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

The ten-issue vampire epic on the bayou from the writer of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels continues in issue three! From the New York Times Best-selling author, George R. R. Martin, comes a tale of vampire clans, death and debauchery, legendary blood masters, 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. Abner is hearing strange rumors about his partner, and it's getting harder for him to defend Joshua after some of the things he's seen himself. It's one thing to have odd sleeping habits -- but to "never" leave his cabin during the day? Marsh made a promise not to push for answers... but when he goes looking, anyway, what he finds is only going to leave him with more bone-chilling questions! And the dangerous Damon Julian continues to maneuver his brood like chess pieces on a board, but what game is he really playing, and how high are the stakes? Each issue of this stunning full-color epic is illustrated by Rafa Lopez, an artist whose skilled line captures every moonlit drop of blood in delicious detail. Adapted by the Hugo-nominated author Daniel Abraham, this version of Febre Dream stays faithful to Martin's original dark vision, while bringing the torture and joy of his vampires to almost-human life. This haunting series is available with Regular and Wraparound painted covers by Felipe Massafera and a very limited Nightmare retailer incentive.

32 pages, $3.99.
