Violence, crime, drug use, and racism rule on the streets of Vermintown.  SIMON SPURRIER has created a fascinating city of angry fairy folk that have become far too much like the human race that no longer believes in them.
The smash-hit web comic takes you into a metropolis of vices that unflinchingly shows us what happened to the fairy folk of yesteryear.  Now this living and breathing city holds a darkness that has rotted it to the core.  Vermintown is where magic went to die.  And in its streets the worst evils in us are now poisoning the last remaining magics in the world.   Disenchanted will change the way you look at fairy tales forever.
This volume collects the complete second arc of the weekly web series www.disenchantedcomic.com.

God is Dead

Mankind prayed for salvation.  As the gods of mythology fought and destroyed around them, they hoped and spoke in hushed tones of the return of the Christian God.  Now Jesus Christ has risen and once again walks among mortals.
But thousands of years of recounting the stories of the Bible won’t prepare people for the truth about the All Powerful.  They believed that Jesus was the savior of the human race and that he would return to do so again.  Now the Son of God has come back but his salvation comes as the most horrific of prices. The most audacious arc of God Is Dead has arrived as MIKE COSTA delivers the intensity and darkness in a world of divine wrath.
God is Dead Vol 3 TP collects issues #13 – 18 of the ongoing comic book series.

Crossed

The Crossed universe is an unyielding nightmare vision of animal depravity and homicidal insanity.  In this volume, two of the industry’s best new talents come together to tell very different stories of despair.  Simon Spurrier takes you to a picturesque environment in the English countryside with tweeting birds, friendly vicars, crumpets and jam, and a mob of Crossed lurking near the duck pond.  No one sees Wheezy the fat asthmatic kid hiding up in the old tower but if he shows his face it will only be the farmer’s wife between him and a bloody fate.  The problem is, she’s Crossed too.
And newly-Crossed Justin Jordan tells his first diabolical tale as two women attempt to escape the band of monsters out for their blood. When a mysterious unseen Samaritan helps them escape to a sanctuary it seems as though they’ve found what little safety there is in the new world order.  But trusting anyone in the world of Crossed usually leads to a gut-wrenching and miserable end.
Crossed Vol 11 TP collects Crossed 2014 Annual and issues #57 – 61 of the ongoing Crossed: Badlands comic book series.

New York Times bestselling Author, Max Brooks returns to the frightening world of zombies versus vampires in his groundbreaking follow up series: Extinction Parade: War!
Well known for his breathtakingly original fiction, Brooks pushes the limits of the horror genre with his trademark meticulous research and vision for the next evolution in zombie storytelling.  The subdead were always a joke to the aristocratic vampire race.  Just a spec on the radar of their immortal lives, nothing worth even a moment’s notice in their quest for self-gratification through the veins of their host, the human race.  But at last they have been pulled from their ignorance into the reality of the new world order.
The human race is facing extinction and should they succumb, so too shall the vampires disappear beneath the waves of rotting walking dead.  Now the vampire race has mobilized and formed a grand Army of the Bloodline to combat the growing threat of extinction.  But after centuries of ambivalence will they be able to learn how to wage war before it is too late?
This volume collects the Extinction Parade: War #1 – 5 comic book series.

The crew of the mining ship Caliban is on a routine mission deep in the universe and confident that nothing outside the normal humdrum monotony of space travel will occur.  But when they encounter an alien vessel their dreams of a simple mission turn into a nightmare unfolding along the lonely corridors of the cold steel ship.  Something is stalking them and systematically eliminating the few remaining personnel one by one.
How can you fight something you can’t even understand?  Claustrophobic terror grips the crew now as they attempt to escape the thing that has waited patiently for them to eventually arrive in the vast lonely darkness.  No one is safe in deep space.  Revolutionary comics writer Garth Ennis (Preacher, Crossed) takes you to a very dark place with the type of high tension paranoid storytelling that will leave a lasting mark on you.
Beautifully illustrated by Facundo Percio (Fashion Beast), Caliban is a must read for horror and sci-fi fans alike.  This volume collects the Caliban #1 – 7 comic book series.

The horrors of enhanced soldier war have taken a dire turn for the Allies.  Their attempts to develop a counter to the German Battleship Ubers have led to a crossroads in development.  But the discovery that the Nazis have not only discovered the same weapons but have improved upon them leaves a terrible hole in their ability to mount a defense.
With both sides suffering herculean losses and the devastation of world war decimating every nation, the escalation of super human combat is making the Allies desperate for foothold.  Kieron Gillen (Journey into Mystery) has created a unique and terrifying mix of the fantastic and the horrible that will leave you speechless in the blood soaked pages of Uber.  The horrors of super human warfare are immeasurable.
This volume collects issues #12 – 17 of the ongoing Uber comic book series.
