Dynamite opens the Stargate and kicks things off with writer Brandon (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) Jerwa and Cezar (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) Razek and featuring the sexiest star of the Stargate franchise – Vala Mal Doran (played by the incomparable Claudia Black)!

We start our story during the years when Vala was acting as a free agent in the intergalactic underworld.  While the ever-growing Lucian Alliance attempts to recruit her, Vala puts together an Ocean’s Eleven-style team of freelancers (though her team numbers around 5 people) to help her track down a mysterious sentient plant believed to be a source of great power.

Sergeant Stiles’ hatred of the Nazis has got him right where he wants to be: sitting behind a high-velocity cannon with a mighty German tank in his sights. But Tigers are never more dangerous than when they’re cornered, and the Panzer crew will be only too happy to take their enemies with them. The cat and mouse battle is fought to the finish, as the second Battlefields arc concludes with a bang.

Written by GARTH ENNIS
Art by PJ HOLDEN
Cover by JOHN CASSADAY

80 pages $12.99 Suggested for mature readers
“All these people playing murder in the dark…”

England, January 1942: young Australian Ken Harding arrives at his first operational squadron, keen to play his part in the aerial attack on Germany as the commander of a bomber crew. Losses have been high and life expectancy is low, but Ken remains undaunted- until he meets his crew, a foulmouthed, battle-hardened bunch with no time for new boys who can’t stand the pace. Together, they must take the war to the enemy over the most heavily-defended region of the Third Reich- the industrial heartland of the Ruhr, known to the men who face the flak and nightfighters as Happy Valley.

A tale of aerial warfare at its toughest, by writer Garth Ennis (The Boys), artist PJ Holden (Judge Dredd) and cover artist Garry Leach (Judge Dredd) .
