SUPERGOD #1

Written by Warren Ellis, art by Garrie Gastony, covers by Felipe Massafera and Gastony.

Supergod: praying to be saved by a man who can fly will get you killed. In the world of Supergod, superhumans are the ultimate expression of the Messiah complex, and scientists can build Messiahs who will fly down from the skies to save the world. No-one thought about how they’d do it — or even if they’d want to. So begins the apocalyptic tomorrow of Supergod — the story of how supermen killed us all and ended the world just because we wanted to be rescued by human-shaped things from beyond Science itself! 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!

32 pages, $3.99.

CHRONICLES OF WORMWOOD: THE LAST BATTLE #3

Written by Garth Ennis, art and covers by Oscar Jimenez.

Jimmy the Rabbit, Jay, and Danny Wormwood, the Anti-Christ himself, are back in a new full-color six-issue series! Danny’s world is crumbling around him as things with Maggie hit a new low and Jimmy makes the worst mistake possible. But all of this may be moot as Pope Jacko unleashes his most twisted plan for vengeance yet. Available with Regular and Visions of Hell Wraparound, both by series artist Jimenez, and special retailer incentive Anti-Christ Edition!

32 pages, $3.99.

ABSOLUTION #4

Written by Christos Gage, art by Roberto Viacava, covers by Jacen Burrows, Juan Rose Ryp and Paul Duffield.

Gage pushes John Dusk to the brink as Absolution kicks into high gear! You know the situation Dick Cheney likes to talk about–the one where you have a criminal in custody, there’s imminent danger to innocent lives, and only your captive has the information needed to save them? John Dusk is in that situation now. Except the perp isn’t in John’s custody, he’s in the NYPD’s. And they don’t torture. If John takes matters into his own hands, with everyone watching… everything changes. He’s always told himself he brutalized criminals to save innocents. But will he NOT torture and kill to save himself, even if it means others die? 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 Paul Duffield, as well as a Vigilante Retailer Order Incentive.

32 pages, $3.99.

FREAKANGELS VOL 3 TPB

Written by Warren Ellis, art and cover by Paul Duffield.

Volume Three of award-winning author Warren Ellis’ ongoing web comic, Freakangels, is here! This installment collects the entire third arc of the post-apocalyptic saga into 144 gorgeous, full-color pages. Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years later, the world ended. Today, eleven strange 23-year-olds are living in and defending Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. They’ve made a new friend, and together they successfully defended their home from raiders–but the post-apocalyptic drowned London that the eleven Freakangels survive in is never a safe place, and never surrounded by friends. In Freakangels: Volume Three, the FreakAngels begin to address how to build their community while a serial killer stalks in their midst. Everything almost comes crashing down around them as one of their own breaks their most valued rule. Ellis’ ongoing story of a flooded London is beautifully illustrated in jaw-dropping detail by Paul Duffield, and every page is as much a work of art as it is a compelling and multi-layered story.

144 pages, $19.99 (Hardcover, limited to 2,000 copies, $27.99; signed hardcover, $39.99).

DOKTOR SLEEPLESS #16

Written by Warren Ellis, art by Ivan Rodriguez, covers by Juan Jose Ryp and Rodriguez.

Everything comes to a head in the Armageddon end of Doktor Sleepless Volume 2: Heavenside’s embroiled in a drug war, disease rules the streets, buildings are on fire, all is chaos…and Doktor Sleepless is about to come down from his mountain to survey his work and find it good. But so many people want him dead that he might not get more than a glance. It’s a mad scientist versus all the people we’ve met in Volume 2, cops, drug dealers, journalists… who gets to live?

32 pages, $3.99.

New Doktor Sleepless Shirts?

No Comments »

Spiraltwist from over at Grinding.be just posted a photo of a new shirt apparently coming out this week.

Let me know what you think of it!

A small grinder logo on the left front chest, large warning sign on the back.

Although I’m not one to wear Orange I’d still be interested in one of these.
