story CLAUDIO SANCHEZ
art GUS VAZQUEZ
cover TONY MOORE

Coheed Kilgannon’s suburban world is turned upside down by General Mayo Deftinwolf, who explains the nightmares of torture that violate Coheed’s dreams are real—and that Coheed and his family play a crucial piece in a terrorist plot to destroy all the worlds of the Keywork. To save these worlds, Coheed and his wife, Cambria, must do the unthinkable…

From the imagination of Claudio Sanchez, the creative mind behind the music sensation COHEED AND CAMBRIA, comes a science fiction epic in the tradition of Star Wars and The Matrix—a new, star-spanning mythology, rooted in the story of one simple family. Hold on tight. The Amory Wars start here!

story RICK SPEARS
art & cover ROB G

From the team that brought you TEENAGERS FROM MARS, and The Couriers comes REPO, an all-out action comedy about two small-time repo men named KD and Emil. Usually their job is repossessing cars from deadbeats who owe the wrong kind of people money. Today the job is different—the repo of an escaped clone. More specifically, its beating heart!

With a multi-million dollar price on the clone’s head attracting every hyper-violent repo team in the quad—not to mention the Clone Liberation Army—our boys will have to fight their way through an ever-growing body count just to stay one step ahead of the pack, snatch the clone and hopefully make it out with their lives.
