THE SEARCHERS – VOLUME ONE: THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME
Before there was the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen there was The Searchers. At the dawn of the 20th century the greatest literary adventurers from the likes of Wells, Verne, Doyle, Burroughs, and Haggard were created. All thought to be the work of pure fiction. However, a century later, the real-life descendants of those famous adventurers are recruited by the legendary Professor Challenger in order to save mankind’s future. Collected for the first time is one of Caliber’s most critically acclaimed series. Written by the team of Colin Clayton and Chris Dows (2000AD’s BISON, AUTUMN, THE DISCIPLES) and illustrated by Art Wetherell (STAR WARS, NEGATIVE BURN). DIAMOND # FEB171450 $14.99.
FLESH & STEEL
From the shores of Asia comes a blend of fantasy and medieval trappings. Inspired by the legend of the Golem creature. From exile, an ancient Golem guardian of steel is summoned back into battle! Enticed by the promise of a place amongst men, the Golem heeds the call of the newly ascended Emperor in his campaign to destroy the very Resistance who created and abandoned him. Raising his blade against those he once swore to protect, the Golem will face his greatest battle yet. From upcoming Singapore writer Shaun Kang and illustrated by Ernani Faraon. DIAMOND # FEB171447 $16.99.
Award-winning veteran comic writer/artist Gary Scott Beatty’s (INDIE COMICS MAGAZINE) jazz piano man Dean Fontessa returns in five standalone stories that come together with a twist – like a masterful, cool jazz solo! Beatty’s illustration style drops readers into the late night music clubs of 1957. A fantastic, innovative and unique blend of art and text to depict the rhythm of the times! “Jazz: Midnight is a beautiful marriage between 50’s stylized art and captivate writing that only Beatty can provide.” – Solutions-By-Us. DIAMOND # FEB171449 $7.99
SIXSMITHS – VOLUME TWO
It’s The Simpsons meets The Osbournes! In an all new collection. The Sixsmiths are a family of suburban Satanists recovering from the global recession. Their eldest daughter, Jezabelle, has returned to the fold with a frightening amount of zeal. Meanwhile, recently converted Dennis O’Dowell finds that adopting a new faith has not made him as cool as he had hoped. When the Sixsmith’s church burns down, the whole community is embroiled in a crisis. What hidden enemy has brought them this low? Or is the Dark Lord punishing them for their weakness? From Australian writer Jason Franks with a host of Australian artists tagging along. “Hilarious, profane, and even moving, the Sixsmiths is a book you should be reading. Or Lucifer will reap your soul.” – Justin Jordan. DIAMOND # FEB171451 $16.99
HELSING: LEGACY BORN
From writer Gary Reed (DEADWORLD, RENFIELD) and artists Guy Davis (HELLBOY, BPRD, BATMAN), John Lowe (SPIDER-MAN, GREEN LANTERN, X-MEN, BATMAN) and Bruce McCorkindale (GODZILLA).
