Cover A by Jay Anacleto - white

FC 32pp $2.95 Bi-monthly ongoing series.

The Concept


Athena Inc., the blackest of black ops, has come up with the perfect operative.

She can't be caught.

And even if she could be, there is no way to link her to any action because she doesn't even know she's an agent.

Heck, she doesn't even look like their agent.

She was hailed as a success…that was until…the genetic trigger that enables her to switch personas began to break down. Now she can switch forms more or less on her own. And is now she's a threat to the security of Athena Inc. and must be dealt with. But who will deal with whom first?

This Issue


"Revelations"


Gwen begins to realize what she is, and the realization is driving her #$%^&*# crazy. She is lo.osing it. But the warm hand of help is being offered by the cold heart of Athena Inc. itself, Morgan Castle. This guy is THE wolf in sheep's clothing. Mary knows he is not here to help. But how can she convince her nave alter-ego that she is walking into a deathtrap, before it's too late? An issue not to be missed.

(A) Ben Templesmith


(Cover) Ben Templesmith


FC 32pp $2.50 Ongoing monthly series

Concept


Featuring the same core character as the long-running Spawn comic book,

(A) Phil Hester


(I) Jim Woodyard


FC 32pp $2.95 Four issue finite series.

The Concept


Sometimes the worst that can happen is that your dreams come true, and

they turn out to be nightmares. Take for example Max Brody, an upcoming

grappler struggling to live up to his father's legend in the wild world

of professional wrestling. It'll just take one big break for that to

happen. Max gets that break, but is it worth it? Is fame and fortune

enough for a man to risk his very soul.

This Issue


Max Brody has gone from jobbing to has-been wrestlers to moving to the

top of the card. His role as The Holy Terror has become the hottest

gimmick in AWF wrestling. Only problem is no other wrestler wants to

step in the ring with him. Is it jealousy over Max's rise to fame, or do

they really fear facing him, even in fixed fight? Meanwhile the forces

of the Silent One are closing in.

The Concept


At Christmas time, all dreams come true. What do vampires dream of?

Blood, of course. Lots of it. Esque, the vampire, is no different, but

in Santa's eyes he's been more naughty than nice. A lump of coal in his

stocking is what Esque expects as he goes off into the cold city night

to seek his holiday dinner. During his hunt on Christams Eve, he

encounters junkies, pedophiles, goth chicks, and the scariest of them

all --holiday shoppers. Everyone's hustling for that last-minute score,

and amidst the snow and carols, who knows what Esque might find?

This Graphic Novel marks the return of Esque, Joseph Michael Linsner's

post-modern vampire. After haunting Linsner's work for the last 10

years, Esque finally gets a chance to star in a book of his own. The

Vampire's Christmas ~~ the feel-good vampire comic of the season.

Recommended for readers and fans of


Anne Rice, Laurel K. Hamilton, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel.
