Deadworld Classics, Vol. 2 TPB
Gary Reed, Jack Herman, Vince Locke (w) • Vince Locke, Scott Parrish, Mark Bloodworth, James O’Barr, Paul Daly (a) • Locke (c)
Finally, the entire work of Vince Locke’s Deadworld compiled into two volumes. In this second volume, including issues #9–16, our young adventurers are rescued, not realizing they’re plunged into horrors they can’t possibly imagine. Joining Vince are Mark Bloodworth and The Crow’s James O’Barr, stepping in on ink chores as the Vince Locke issues conclude. The art gallery features some of Vince’s design work in t-shirts, ads, etc., plus the original series’s covers in ink before they were colored. With Deadworld signed for a feature film scripted by X-Men and Watchmen’s David Hayter, Deadworld has never been more “alive.”

Miss Fury Volume 1
Tarpé Mills (w & a & c)
Catfights and crossdressers, mad scientists and Gestapo agents with swastika branding irons—it’s one lurid and exciting adventure after another in this lavish, full-color collection of the first female superhero created and drawn by a woman. Miss Fury was a sexy adventurer clad in a skin-tight panther costume. By day, she was socialite Marla Drake. By night… Miss Fury. In the first half of the 20th century, women cartoonists could be found in America’s newspapers, but Tarpé Mills was one of the few who drew adventure comics, and the only one who drew a costumed superheroine. The Miss Fury Sunday newspaper strip ran from 1941 until 1952 and had millions of readers, among them GIs who painted the beautiful action heroine on the nosecones of their bombers.
HC • FC/BW • $49.99 • 240 Pages • 9.25” x 12” • ISBN: 978-1-60010-905-8

Bullet Points:
• Eisner- and Harvey-nominated writer and historian Trina Robbins has chosen the best Miss Fury stories for this oversized collection.
• Features a biographical essay about Tarpé Mills that places her within the history of women cartoonists.
• Includes pages from an unpublished and unfinished Miss Fury graphic novel by Mills from 1979.

John Byrne’s Next Men #7
John Byrne (w & a & c)
The hunt is on! Can Bethany and her allies from the Future find Nathan, Jazz and Tony before the time stream is changed irreversibly? Or is that something that SHOULD happen? History itself hangs in the balance.
FC • 32 pages • $3.99

*Variant covers:
B&W John Byrne cover

Next Men, Vol. 1
John Byrne (w & a & c)
A new chapter begins in the lives of the survivors of Project Next Men. New friends, new foes, and a tale that literally twists time itself out of joint. When the thirty-issue story took a “time out” 15 years ago, it looked like John Byrne may never conclude his infectious tale. But now, after a long wait, we’ll learn what happened that fateful night when Santhana’s master plan took shape within the walls of the White House.
HC • FC • $21.99 • 104 Pages • ISBN: 978-1-60010-924-9

Sales Points:
They said it would never happen, but it has! John Byrne has returned to his classic creation!

John Barber (w) • Jorge Jimenez Moreno (a & c)
The adventure continues as the TRANSFORMERS 3: DARK OF THE MOON adaptation throttles on!
FC • 32 pages • $3.99
