NAMELESS tells the story of a down-at-heel occult hustler known only as "Nameless" who is recruited by a consortium of billionaire futurists as part of a desperate mission to save the world. A massive asteroid named Xibalba—the "Place of Fear" in Mayan mythology—is on collision course with the planet Earth. If that wasn't trouble enough, the asteroid has an enormous magical symbol carved into its side and is revealed to be a fragment of our solar system's lost fifth planet, Marduk, destroyed sixty-five million years ago at the end of an epic cosmic war between the inhabitants of Marduk and immensely powerful, life-hating, extra-dimensional "gods." One of those beings is still alive, imprisoned on Xibalba, dreaming of its ultimate revenge on all that exists. When Nameless and his teammates inadvertently unleash this malignant soul-destroying intelligence, the stage is set for a nightmarish, nihilistic journey to the outer reaches of human terror.

THE FINAL CHAPTER IN THE STORY OF SARA PEZZINI!
During her twenty years as Bearer of the Witchblade, Sara Pezzini has traveled the globe to do battle with just about every form of evil under the sun. When a powerful collector of the supernatural offers Sara a job, though, she finds herself called back to where it all began: New York City. If things seem too good to be true, however, it's because they are. Looming over this new opportunity is the cold, hard fact that nothing lasts forever, and Sara's tenure as Witchblade is almost at its end. Of course, Sara can't help but wonder: Is this the end of the Artifact, or the end of her life?
