EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT IRIS: VOL 1 TPB

Written by David Wohl, art by Eduardo Francisco, colored by John Starr.

She's a secretary, bodyguard, and assassin all rolled into one... Meet Iris, a loyal and ruthlessly efficient subordinate to her powerful, corporate boss Mr. Ching. In the modern, cutthroat corporate world, today's CEO needs an intimidating edge to stay on top, and Iris is more than well trained to oblige the demand of her employer, including murder. However, Iris discovers the man she has dutifully served for most of her life is far more corrupt than the people she is sworn to protect him from. Now torn between her loyalties to the only person she's ever served, and the new life she realizes she's ready to explore on her own, she must make a choice that could ultimately lead to her demise. Iris' treacherous journey for redemption is set in motion as the entire first volume of the critically acclaimed action-adventure series is collected here for the very first time!

FATHOM: ASPEN MATTHEWS STATUE

Designed by Michael Turner, sculpted by Dean Mason.

The first new Fathom statue in over 10 years has arrived! Showcasing Fathom's premiere heroine Aspen Matthews, this stunning work of art is truly a sight to behold! As mesmerizing as she is beautiful, Aspen raises the bar to all-new heights on hand-sculpted creations! Measuring over 16" inches tall and an over 10" wide wingspan, this full size statue is sure to be the centerpiece of any collection. Designed by artist Michael Turner, and sculpted by Dene Mason, this is easily one of the most intricately detailed statues ever produced! With the previous Grace statue being an instant sell out, and the Kiani statue being awarded statue of the year honors, we don't expect Aspen to stick around long! The production run will be strictly set to orders.

$299.99, in stores on SEpt. 29.
