Warren Ellis introduces you to the sultry Anna Mercury in this all-new color series! Dancing amid the spires of a city called New Ataraxia, there is a woman who can cloud men’s minds, leap across buildings as if weightless, unerringly fire twin automatic pistols in the most insane conditions, and disappear in a crowded room. She fights against the political repression of an insane technocratic society, and she comes from a place that no-one in New Ataraxia has ever heard of. And she’s got one hour to save the city from itself. A high-octane blend of The Shadow, Tomb Raider, retropunk science fiction and 21st century Weird Pulp Action, ANNA MERCURY is a headlong adventure serial about a beautiful and mysterious spy-adventurer who is not what she seems…. Anna Mercury will be a series of mini-series, starting with this five issue color series that features art by all-new talent Facundo Percio. This issue is available with a regular cover by Paul Duffield, a wraparound by Juan Jose Ryp, a Painted cover by artist Felipe Massafera, and also a rare 1-in-15 Design Sketch Edition featuring the initial character designs by Ryp.

He has seen and participated in some of the most horrific, supernatural events that mortal eyes have ever beheld, but when his personal integrity has been attacked, the line has just been crossed! Combat Magician and Occult Detective William Gravel continues to cut a bloody swathe across the English countryside as he tracks down the next member of the Minor Seven, the secret enclave of occult practitioners who have unceremoniously ousted Gravel from their ranks. With two sections of the dissected occult artifact known as the Sigsand Manuscript now in his hands, Gravel has a new mission, beyond personal retribution: Retrieving of the remaining pieces of the Sigsand from the hands of the surviving Minor Seven. But that’s easier said than done, when the next magician on his list is an apparition, in control of a stampeding, blood-thirsty herd of ghost horses that charge forth into the night from “The Stables Of The Dead!” This issue is available with a regular cover by Mike Wolfer, a wraparound by Raulo Caceres, and also a rare 1-in-15 Black Magic Edition featuring a new cover by Wolfer.
