“TRASHED!”, Part One

Rock Bottom HC
THE ACCLAIMED OGN RETURNS IN AN ALL-NEW, OVERSIZED HARDCOVER EDITION! Meet Thomas Dare… an ordinary man dealing with an extraordinary circumstance.

From the CODEFLESH creative team of JOE CASEY (G?DLAND) and CHARLIE ADLARD (THE WALKING DEAD).

“… ballsy in its unforgiving, raw and emotional nature. Dead-on dramatic pulp, pure and simple.” – Comic Book Zeitgeist

“Really fine storytelling… that’ll linger long past many more flashy efforts.” -blogcritics

ROCK BOTTOM: AN EPIC OF HUMAN PROPORTIONS!

Saga #7
Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ smash-hit ongoing series returns! An all-new adventure begins, as new parents Marko and Alana make an unexpected discovery in the vast emptiness of outer space.

Scene of the Crime HC Deluxe
From the co-creators of Gotham Central and FATALE comes a lost crime noir masterpiece. Long out of print, and presented here for the first time in an oversized hardback edition, SCENE OF THE CRIME was the first time ED BRUBAKER and MICHAEL LARK worked together – before their acclaimed runs on Daredevil and Gotham Central – and it was inked by SEAN PHILLIPS, who also designed this deluxe edition.

This is where it all began, with a hard-hitting mystery story, a modern
day “Chinatown” that garnered nominations for Best Miniseries and Best Writer in the 2000 Eisner Awards. Also included in this new collection are behind the scenes art and stories, a new foreword by BRUBAKER, and many other extras. This is the book you’ll want on your shelves.

Shinku Vol. 1
Bloody horror meets martial-arts mayhem in the first collection from the sold-out series by RON MARZ (WITCHBLADE, ARTIFACTS) and LEE MODER (WONDER WOMAN). The last surviving member of a samurai family wages a one-woman war against a clan of vampires in modern-day Tokyo in the first story arc from the acclaimed new series. If you like your vampires to sparkle, look elsewhere! Also contains a cover gallery, sketchbook, pin-ups and the rare black, white and red ashcan edition.

Collects SHINKU #1-5

Thief of Thieves #10
As Augustus tries his best to save his kidnapped girlfriend from the cartel, Agent Cohen begins to lean in on him for a lead on Redmond. You’ll never guess who he turns to for help with his current situation. Hint: it’s not his father.

Think Tank #4
The conclusion to the first arc of THINK TANK! Dr. David Loren, slacker genius, must escape the most secure facility in the world and then escape from Fort Meade in the heart of the Washington DC power corridor. The ultimate story of brains versus brawn and a commentary on America’s so-called exceptionalism and military industrial complex.

“THINK TANK grabs you from the very beginning and has you begging for more by the end. A great introduction to a new character and a new world. A must-have for anyone who wants something cool… and who doesn’t want that?” – ROBERT KIRKMAN (THE WALKING DEAD, THIEF OF THIEVES, INVINCIBLE)

The Walking Dead #104
If you won’t handle this… I will.
