by YUZO TAKADA, produced by STUDIO PROTEUS

Pai, the beautiful 300-year-old amnesiac mystic, and her companion-cum-immortal slave, Tokyo student Yakumo Fujii, search China for ancient relics to provide clues to the location of Pai's hidden Tibetan homeland, where Pai's memories can be restored. But the two are not the only ones in search of these objects. Both the dashing relic-hunter Jake McDonald and the nefarious Choukai, are trying to get their mitts on a certain mystic incense burner. And when Choukai traps Pai within a sorcerous binding circle, Yakumo is torn by the fateful decision of whether or not to pay the artifact as ransom to free Pai and by doing so, dooming Pai's memories and his own chance of returning to his mortal existence.

BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL #74: FALL FROST part 2 (of 6)
by HIROAKI SAMURA; produced by STUDIO PROTEUS

Nastier opponents and meaner battles are the two things that come to mind when trying to describe this story arc. You'd think by now Manji would have sliced his way through the most sinister personalities of feudal Japan. But instead of thinning out the vicious herd, removing the worst and most depraved, he's only shaken loose the meanest characters. And it looks like Manji and Magatsu are in for a killer collision with one of the baddest. They've been hunting down Shira, but they're not the only ones on the prowl. The hunters have become the hunted and Shira has nothing but dishonorable intentions for his prey. The fuse is burning fast on this confrontation and it's anyone's guess who will be left standing after it explodes.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #52: VIVA LAS BUFFY part 2 (of 4)
by SCOTT LOBDELL, FABIAN NICIEZA, and CLIFF RICHARDS;


cover by PAUL LEE

"Viva Las Buffy"! Before Buffy ever arrived in Sunnydale, she did a little stint in Vegas. Not exactly doing what we have her pictured here, but we couldn't resist …

Frightened and confused by her new-found powers as the Slayer, Buffy has picked up and left her mom and little sister behind. Hiding out in Sin City is no way to avoid trouble, though, especially when the city's gentle citizens are being terrorized by just a few of the many bodies buried without headstones in Vegas's seedier strips. Perfect for Christmas!

CLASSIC COMIC CHARACTERS #37: EUGENE THE JEEP STATUE

Weirdly cute, this yellow, dog-sized critter was a gift to Olive Oyl from her Uncle Ben. Segar described Jeep's magical powers as being the result of having a "fourth-dimensional brain." Able to answer questions regarding the past, present, or future, he was, unlike other Segar fantasy creatures, a good little guy with a happy-go-lucky demeanor. Jeep lived on a diet consisting entirely of orchids. He had the power to disappear and re-appear in a different location, making him one of the earlier comic-strip advocates of teleportation.

Sculpted by Yoe! Studios, each statue comes packaged in a full-color tin box with pinback button and booklet as extras. Each piece is limited to only 600 numbered copies, so allocation may occur.

o Classic Comic Characters - Winner of the 2002 Eisner-Award for Best Comics Related Merchandise. See our complete list of available statues in our relist section or our full color ad on the Previews inside back cover.

DARKNESS FALLS: TOOTH FAIRY - THE TRAGIC LIFE OF MATILDA DIXON (one-shot)
By JOE HARRIS and CHARLIE ADLARD

Darkness Falls: The Tooth Fairy: The Tragic Life of Matilda Dixon serves as a prologue to the film, recounting the century-old events that set a horrifying cycle of violence in motion. The movie stars Emma Caulfield (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and is slated for January 2003 release. The comic book is written by Joe Harris (X-Men) and drawn by Charlie Adlard (The X-Files). The comic focuses on a defining moment in the history of Darkness Falls, a small fishing village. Matilda Dixon, a once-beautiful, now-disfigured widow has developed a special relationship with the children of Darkness Falls. They bring her their recently shed baby teeth in exchange for coins. However, the mask-clad Dixon's familiarity with the town's children alarms their parents, and when two children go missing a lynch mob gathers to make Matilda pay. Unable to defend herself from the town's fury, Matilda is hanged from the nearest tree. No sooner is her neck broken than the two children reveal themselves: they had simply snuck off to go to the fair. The comic is as sorrowful as it is frightening and the events of the book clearly presage the curse that Matilda's death has cast on Darkness Falls and its children for decades to come. The comic book is written by Joe Harris (X-Men) and drawn by Charlie Adlard (The X-Files).

o Dark Horse Comics is proud to publish the comic book prequel to Revolution Studios' hit-in-the-making Darkness Falls. In theatres Winter 2003.

GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: MAN-MACHINE INTERFACE #3
by MASAMUNE SHIROW; translation by FREDERIK L. SCHODT

Cyborg cyber-agent Motoko Aramaki has dispatched a humanoid surrogate - call her "Clarice" - to investigate an apparent terrorist attack on a herd of genetically engineered pigs designed for human organ cloning. And no sooner does the surrogate hit the ground in a vehicle assembly plant halfway around the world than she's wrangling a herd of a different kind - no-nonsense security cyborgs bent on sending her to the cyber-scrapheap. But when Clarice/Matoko jacks into the brain of the facility's supervisor and breaks through network firewalls into the level 6 "ghostline," Motoko discovers that the pig slaughter may have been only a strike against a deeper conspiracy - and yet another hidden enemy!
