CHILL.jpgTHE CHILL HC
Written by Jason Starr
Art by Mick Bertilorenzi
Cover by Lee Bermejo

“Starr has a hard-edged style that is clean, cold and extremely chilling.”
— Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

It’s summer in New York, but a “chill” has settled over the city – a serial killer is on the loose, and the ritualized murders are becoming increasingly sadistic. The NYPD and the FBI have a suspect: a gorgeous young woman named Arlana. The only problem is that every witness provides a different description of her. None of it makes any sense to anyone except Martin Cleary, a beaten-down Irish cop from Boston with a whopper of a secret in his past – and a past that may go back a century or two . . .

CIFL-Cv1.jpgCINDERELLA:
FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE #1
Written by Chris Roberson
Art by Shawn McManus
Cover by Chrissie Zullo

When supernatural artifacts from the Homelands begin surfacing in the modern world, it falls to Cinderella, Fabletown’s best kept (and best dressed) secret agent to stop the illegal trafficking. But can Cindy foil the dark plot before Fabletown and its hidden, exiled inhabitants are exposed once and for all? And how does her long lost Fairy Godmother factor into the equation?

Whether she’s soaring through clouds, deep-sea diving, or cracking jaws, Cindy travels from Manhattan to Dubai and hooks up with a handsome, familiar accomplice who may be harboring secret motives of his own. Meanwhile, trouble brews back home in Fabletown when Cindy’s overworked, underappreciated assistant decides to seize control of The Glass Slipper, Cindy’s exclusive shoe boutique.

Writer Chris Roberson (occasional contributor to HOUSE OF MYSTERY and JACK OF FABLES), artist Shawn McManus (SANDMAN, THESSALY: WITCH FOR HIRE) and evocative new cover painter Chrissie Zullo deliver Cindy’s first major solo adventure replete with sex, spies and magical shoes in the 6-issue CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE.

“Witches” Part 4! We continue our in-depth look at the inner workings, politics and intrigue of the 13th floor sorcerers group, this time focusing on the witch named (CENSORED for reader safety), who thinks she’s the best candidate to take over leadership from Frau Totenkinder. Unfortunately for her, the infamous Black Forest Witch doesn’t seem ready to give up the reins of power. As Maddy the Cat said just two issues back, “Everyone could see there was a showdown brewing between those two, and I’ve no intention of finding myself in the middle of it when it happens.”

Art by Russ Braun & Andrew Pepoy
Cover by Brian Bolland

Winding up our “Adventures of Jack and Jack” story, Jack Frost continues to learn the hero trade while Jack Horner finally learns why he’s been getting so fat and ugly. Weirdly enough, that’s all we can possibly tell you about this issue and still retain some bit of surprise. Of course we could lie and promise a few things that aren’t actually in this story. We’ve done that often enough before. But after a while, the lies and misdirection and carefully constructed half-truths begin to weary a man’s soul. Let’s just say that by the end of this issue, both Jacks get what’s coming to them.
