Marla Drake, the untamable costumed adventurer known as Miss Fury, fought Nazis with wild abandon not just during World War II, but - due to a scientific mishap - throughout time, as well. Now trapped in the 1943 of a parallel universe, she comes face-to-face with her mirror double, a hedonistic murderess whose soul was never saved by the love of a good man. Realizing what her life could be like now that she has lost her own beloved Matthew Chandler, she surrenders to the slimy promises of Schauburger, a rogue (and dead) Nazi agent whose ghost can alter the timestream and set things right. The cost? Killing the alternate Marla Drake, the Pharaoh of Time, the Mafia superhero The Mob, a US Naval Intelligence nuclear physicist... and the list goes on. No matter how hard she tries, people just seem to want Miss Fury to murder for them. How many must die so that she can become a good person again?

Recently upgraded with new bionic components and software, she is deployed to Mexico on a routine assignment… and discovers herself the target of Maureo Morales, a rogue general formerly of the Air Force.

For the first time ever, Lewis Carroll's beloved masterpiece is faithfully adapted and illustrated in its entirety, including the long-lost chapter, "The Wasp in a Wig!"

With old favorites like the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter joined now by a long-forgotten Carroll creation, The Wasp, in one of the book's latter chapters, children and adults alike can rediscover the complete Alice tale and fall in love with Wonderland all over again!
Reviews:
"By adapting Carroll's work so faithfully, writers Leah Moore and John Reppion remind everyone that there is a reason the title of his novel was not just ‘Wonderland.’ In their hands, readers can’t help but realize that Alice is a remarkable creation." - Philadelphia Daily News
"This is a wonderful re-imagining of a classic tale." - Comic Book Resources
"Carroll's wildly imaginative story rightfully explodes onto the page of a comic. Of course, it helps that artist Erica Awano and colorist PC Siqueira are easily up to the task; the work is a glorious mash-up of westernized manga and pastels, giving this book the unique visual look it demands." - Comic Book Waiting Room
"They have instilled in me a desire to understand the original as well as continue to read this version. As far as adaptations are concerned, I can think of few higher compliments." - Broken Frontier

Horror icons from two universes collide as Ash Williams, the chainsaw-armed Chosen One of the small and big screen, crosses paths with the supernatural superheroine Vampirella in a story set during the events of the cult classic film, Army of Darkness!
When Ash misspoke the incantation to acquire the Necronomicon, an unholy book written in blood, the spell ripped Vampirella – a force for good, despite her blood-hungry fangs – from her own time and back to 1300 AD. Infected by Deadite magic, she stalks the halls of Lord Arthur’s castle, unable to control her thirst. Even if that time-lost chucklehead Ash can free her of the demonic mutation, can he convince his allies – primitive screwheads that they are – that she shouldn’t be burned at the stake?
