In MAN OF STONE, two new players arrive to work out a lethal grudge as British Special Forces and Taliban insurgents face off in the Afghan highlands. One is Frank Castle, the man they call the Punisher. The other is General Nikolai Alexandrovich Zakharov, Soviet war criminal, known as the Man of Stone. Neither will stop until the other is dead - and Zakharov has brought not only a platoon of elite shock troops, but CIA traitor Rawlins, blackest of black operators. Castle has allies of his own, but this is old, bad, bloody country. You go to war in Afghanistan...and everybody dies. And in WIDOWMAKER, five Mafia widows are going to try what so many of their menfolk failed at: They're going to take the Punisher down. But they're not the only ones out for revenge. You spend your life married to organized crime, you end up with things in your past you'd rather forget. And for these women, the past is coming back in the worst way possible. Armed. Deadly. And hungry for justice. Collecting PUNISHER #37-49.

Fusing high science fiction with the classical mythological archetype of the quest, New York Times best-selling author Orson Scott Card's WYRMS is a must-read for any fan of science fiction and fantasy. Featuring a world settled by humans from a crashed starship who have built their own unique society, WYRMS is a story full of many themes and ideas, crafted by the writer responsible for such masterpieces as ENDER'S GAME and SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD. And with stunning artwork by Adriano Batista that brings these characters to life, WYRMS is a can't miss event! Collecting WYRMS 1-6.
