Pencils and Wraparound Cover by SETH FISHER


Mass panic has struck the streets of Tokyo! The media has initiated round-the-clock coverage. Uncontrollable crowds are choking the streets, and kaiju hysteria has gripped the island of Japan for the first time in 50 years! Because the Fantastic Four, the world's first super-hero big-monster battling squad, and playboy industrialist, Tony Stark, have descended on the Land of the Rising Sun!


Zeb Wells (New Warriors, Spider-Man/Doctor Octopus: Year One) and Seth Fisher (Green Lantern: Willworld, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight) bring you a manic fusion of Marvel super heroes with Japanese pop culture that proves why the FF and Iron Man are big in Japan!


It's an all-out romp with big monsters a-go-go as Droom, Giganto and Eerok, the giant ape, along with hundreds of manic '50s Marvel monsters, trample Tokyo's first-ever Kaiju Museum and Celebration!

THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS #1
Written by J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI


PencilS & Cover by COLLEEN DORAN


The destinies of most people are defined early on. Then there are the others - the lost. Those whose numbers aren't in yet, who could go toward the light or toward the darkness - indeed, who could be tipped one direction or another. And everything starts with the book. That's what Jonathan is about to discover. When he took a suicide plunge off the London Bridge more than a century ago, the last place he expected to land was on his feet, in the present, standing at the entrance to a tunnel into a world of mysteries beyond his wildest imagination. A world of powers and principalities and, above all, rules that he'd best learn quickly. Or he'll have to deal with the Dark Man. And what the Dark Man can't turn, he devours.
