Volume 1 is back in print! Garth Ennis launches his next major anti-religious epic in the vein of Preacher, told in a series of mini-series! Danny Wormwood is the anti-Christ, no way around it, his dad is Satan and his demonic powers help him fit right into New York where he runs a TV studio. He has a trusty talking rabbit named Jimmy and his best friend is Jesus, who is a black, mentally-challenged, man that just isnít performing many miracles these days. The pesky Armageddon is coming right up, and it doesnít look like Pope Jacko is going to be any help in stopping it. Ennis drags the whole world into the gutter with his trademark razor-sharp dialogue, biting wit, and the stunning art of Jacen Burrows, all in full-color.

SUPERGOD: Your God walks among you. Praying wonít help, expect to die shortly. From the creator of Black Summer and No Hero comes the craziest, nastiest, most soulless and criminal superhero comic of the year! SUPERGOD issue 3: the classic cold-war rivalry lives as the first atomic powered gods clash! In one corner Americaís Jerry Carney and in the other Soviet Russiaís Novaya Goraj. But the collateral damage is beyond imagining and these arenít even the most powerful of the Supergods. This is what a superhuman arms race would look like. This is what asking to be saved by men who can fly would look like. Take every superhero comic ever published, shove them into a nuclear-powered blender, soak it in bad vodka and set the whole thing alight — and SUPERGOD will crawl out and eat your brain! This five issue color series is drawn by Garrie Gastonny with colors by Digikore. SUPERGOD is available with a Regular cover painted by Felipe Massafera, a Wraparound by series artist Garrie Gastonny, and a special retailer incentive Church Of Supergod Edition!

32 pages, $3.99.

It all comes to a head in this explosive final issue! The house of cards has collapsed. The web of lies has unraveled. With his life falling apart around him, can John Dusk survive? Or will he who chases monsters become a monster himself? Don’t miss the shocking conclusion of the acclaimed miniseries – the book Ed Brubaker calls “my favorite thing from Christos Gage so far”! John always knew there would come a time when he had to choose between his two lives. That time is now. And either way, there’s no going back. He wants to be forgiven…but he doesn’t want to stop. This series explodes into stores with a Regular cover by Jacen Burrows, Wraparound by Juan Jose Ryp and Crime Files Edition by Mike Wolfer, as well as a Vigilante Retailer Order Incentive.
