Suicide Risk #2 - Grudge War Part One


When there are only villains, being a hero makes you a...SUICIDE RISK. After barely surviving a super-powered bank heist gone horribly wrong, beat cop Leo Winters vowed to try and find a way to stop them. Following a lead, he discovered two lowlifes who seemed to be able to grant a person powers...for the right price. Thing is: you don't get to choose which power. It's seemingly random, a crap-shoot, a risk. And now Leo will find out just how big of a risk he took...


From Eisner Award-nominated creator Mike Carey (THE UNWRITTEN, X-MEN: LEGACY) and hot newcomer Elena Casagrande ( HULK, HACK/SLASH) with covers by Tommy Lee Edwards (Marvel's 1984) and Stephanie Hans, SUICIDE RISK is a high octane, mind-bending exploration of what it means to be a hero.

Six-Gun Gorilla #1 - Episode One: Shoot Don't Talk


Welcome to "the Blister" -- a bizarre other-world colonized by humans sometime in the 22nd century, which quickly became a hotly-contested source of fertile land and natural resources long ago exhausted on Earth. In this new frontier, a rogue gunslinger and his companion wander across a wilderness in the grips of a civil war, encountering lawlessness, natives, and perversions of civilization in a world at the crossroads between the past and the future. The fact that said gunslinger is a bio-surgically modified silverback gorilla toting a pair of enormous revolvers is neither here nor there.


Written by Simon Spurrier (Marvel's X-MEN LEGACY, EXTERMINATION) and drawn by hot new talent Jeff Stokely (FRAGGLE ROCK) and featuring a cover by Eisner Award-winning artist Ramón Pérez (A TALE OF SAND, AvX: VS), SIX GUN GORILLA is a pulpy mash-up of Western weirdness and lo-fi science fiction unlike anything else on the stands! Ask your retailer about the variant incentive cover by James Harren (B.P.R.D.)!
