Three bounty hunter siblings blaze a path of death and destruction across the old west.Â Traveling by moonlight they rip criminals screaming for mercy froÂÂm their hiding places, but none is ever given.Â Each bounty is torn, broken, and bled dry before they are delivered dead and payment collected in gold â€“ no silver.Â The Irons are the most feared bounty hunting killers in the west, but that fear isnâ€™t based on them being the fastest with a pistol or rifle.Â Itâ€™s because theyâ€™re the walking dead.

TRADES & HARDCOVERS
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT is proud to be the new home for the next series of Garth Ennis’ “war” books, all under the “Battlfields” header!
Late summer, 1942. As the German army smashes deep into Soviet Russia and the defenders of the Motherland retreat in disarray, a new bomber squadron arrives at a Russian forward airbase. Its crews will fly flimsy wooden biplanes on lethal night missions over German lines, risking fiery death as they fling themselves against the invader- but for these pilots, the consequences of capture will be even worse. For the pilots of the 599th Night Bomber Regiment are women. In the deadly skies of the Eastern front, they will become a legend- known, to friend and foe alike, as the Night Witches.
Featuring issues 1-3 of the Night Witches series, along with a complete cover gallery featuring the art of John Cassaday and Garry (Dan Dare) Leach, along with a special look at the making of the series with artist Russ Braun! Suggested for Mature Readers.
Dan Dare has made his Dynamite in this Hardcover Edition of the acclaimed series from writer Garth Ennis and artist Garry Leach!
Dan Dare has been an icon since 1950. Elaborate stories of his space travel and galactic battles defending people of the universe captivated post-War baby boomers. Dan Dareâ€™s adventures burst to the forefront of pop culture, selling nearly 1 million copies each week in the pages of the Eagle Comic. And now heâ€™s back!
â€œDan Dare is the quintessential British hero. Heâ€™s our Captain America, our Superman, our Batman, heâ€™s all of them rolled into one. Heâ€™s the original and the best,â€ said Garth Ennis in the initial press release, and the writer did the hero proud in one incredible series!
Dan Dare is set in the future, albeit not too many decades from the present day. Colonel Dare is still vibrant and courageous â€“ but now heâ€™s retired. His retirement is a self-imposed exile, the result of his disgust with politics and the post-nuclear warfare that has destroyed North America and much of Asia â€“ leaving the UK as the worldâ€™s last remaining superpower. Readers familiar with Dan Dare stories will recognize many of the original cast including a wiser and more experienced Digby; the innovative, brilliant and beautiful Professor Peabody; and of course the enemy of all that is good, the super-intelligent ruler of the Treens â€“ The Mekon, together with a mix of galactic evil beings.
The Dynamite Hardcover Edition will feature the complete Ennis series along with a complete cover gallery!
