“COMPLEX MESSIAH,” Part Four

A Massacre! 

An Awakening! 

And The True Face of Evil!

Featuring another classic TODD McFARLANE cover!!!

As the world eagerly awaits the gifts of their newest savior, Jim Downing’s struggle for control over the darkness within him threatens to jeopardize everything he has worked to build. Violence erupts in the deserts of Mexico as the K7 goes on a feeding frenzy, and for the first time Jim awakens to the realities of the monster that lives within him. Can a man live with so much blood on his hands, or will the weight of the world’s sins crush any hope of salvation?  While Jim wrestles with his new reality, an old adversary explores the true power behind Jim’s”miracles,” as THE CURSE makes his deadly return!

Also Featured: The K7-Leetha is a weapon of mass destruction birthed in the pits of Hell, a living creation built for one purpose — death. But what happens when a tool of unending violence has its own ambitions? A dark future awaits and the path forward begins here.

Joe Fitzgerald was a mob enforcer until the day he met Laura, who convinced him to leave that world behind.  Before quitting, Joe agreed to one last job, little realizing that the man he’d been sent to kill was deeply involved in demonlogy.  He survived Joe’s attempt and came after him, fatally wounding Joe and killing Laura.  As he lay dying, an angelic force (who may or may not be what she appears) pointed out that where she is going, he can’t follow, and where he is going, he wouldn’t want her to follow.  But if he will agree to work for them as a different kind of enforcer, they will bring him to life and keep on bringing him to life every time he is killed in a righteous cause.  The reward: for those five minutes of death, he will be with Laura again.  Would you endure an eternity of pain and death, dying over and over, to be with the woman you love for just five minutes each time you died?  Most people might say no.  But Joe Fitzgerald isn’t most people.

A bold new era begins with the long-anticipated return of Joe’s Comics, the imprint that brought you MIDNIGHT NATION and RISING STARS.  All-new stories from J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI (Babylon 5, Jeremiah, Thor, Amazing Spider-Man, Superman: Earth One) return in 2013 with an action packed line up featuring everything from superhero action to supernatural thrillers.

“A DANGEROUS FAITH”

Long ago, the valiant Templar destroyed themselves through a vicious civil war, allowing the bloodthirsty crusade of the tyrant king Icarus to destroy mouse culture. Yet the inspiring tale of the young mouse Karic promises to restore the fractured Templar and overthrow the mad king. But while some accept Karic as a prophecy for good, still others see his rising legend as an omen of evil.

Thus begins the climactic chapter in the epic saga of hope and despair, of tragedy and triumph, and where every secret will at last be revealed.
