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. Jonathan has been watching hitman Quint lean so far towards the darkness that now the mobster is plummeting into an abyss of his own sins. Quint's bargain with the Dark Man has also caught Jonathan's attention and led both himself and the killer to the ethereal zone known as the Long Road. Now, Jonathan must stop just observing and finally act, because two lives are in danger-that of a prostitute who could be Quint's next victim, and Quint himself, whose soul may already be too tainted to salvage. But if Jonathan intervenes, he risks a confrontation with the demonic Dark Man and a series of consequences that could shatter everything he hopes to accomplish. J. Michael Stracynski (Amazing Spider-Man, Supreme Power) blends timeless fantasy with modern storytelling in this new ongoing series.

Cover by PAT LEE & SCOT EATON


Two titanic tales of suspense spinning out of HOUSE OF M! The Fantastic Four as you never could have imagined them! The trusted advisor at Magneto's right hand is almost certainly the second most powerful man in the world. But the question is...will second-best be enough for Victor Von Doom? Plus: Tony Stark is the smartest, most successful Sapien on the planet - the best and brightest of a dying species. Does it bother him that the House of M uses the technology produced by his multi-billion-dollar company to keep Sapiens down? That must be the reason he keeps his most powerful creation a secret - a familiar-looking suit of armor! Collects FANTASTIC FOUR: HOUSE OF M #1-3 and IRON MAN: HOUSE OF M #1-3.
