New Avatar Press new titles in comic shops Wednesday 4/2/14:
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Master storyteller GARTH ENNIS and Fashion Beast artist FACUNDO PERCIO team up to deliver a haunting new epic of science fiction horror. The crew of the Caliban travels hyperspace on nothing more than a routine trip for the giant vessel. Just human beings that have been inside a bit too long, confident of no other life in the Galaxy, and all the vastness of space to remind them how far they are from home. But when an impossible accident suddenly causes the Caliban to slam into an abandoned alien ship, a nightmare in space begins to unfold. Ennis delivers his unique brand of flawed characters, spot-on dialogue, and trademark flare for the unexpected in a new series in the vein of Alien. This is the beginning of the end for the crew of the Caliban. Available with Regular, Wraparound, Terror, and Design Sketch Incentive covers by Facundo Percio and a ultra-limited Dark Matter edition of just 1500 copies.
Crossed: Badlands #51
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: GARTH ENNIS – the creator of Crossed and Preacher, continues the tale that set off C-Day in comic shops worldwide last month! We return to the beginning of the bloodiest survival horror comic ever created. For over five years fans have speculated and postulated how it all began. Now Ennis addresses a story directly to the faithful that have been preparing for the outbreak since 2008. Artist CHRISTIAN ZANIER provides the shocking illustration as the Crossed plague’s earliest days are chronicled for all to see. But be warned… there is no hope. Available with Regular, Wraparound and Red Crossed Incentive covers by Christian Zanier, a Fatale Fantasy cover by Jacen Burrows and a Torture cover by Gabriel Andrade.
God is Dead #10
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: More returned gods and demigods have targeted the Earth as their own. Now where once there was a single pantheon under Mother Earth Gaia, there is a churning vortex of divine anger and wrath. Mankind plotted to overthrow a god. But little did they know that the solution may be worse than the problem. MIKE COSTA continues JONATHAN HICKMAN’s vision for the war of the divine in the pages of God is Dead! Available with a Regular, End of Days, and Iconic covers by Jacen Burrows, a Carnage Wraparound cover by German Nobile, and a special Gilded Retailer Incentive Cover also by Burrows.
Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath Vol 2 TP
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: The hedonistic late 1970s is the perfect backdrop for the next evolution in the classic Night of the Living Dead series! DAVID HINE continues a horrifyingly original take on the zombie menace as the virus spreads through Las Vegas leaving it a city of the dead. As a group of unlikely survivors flee east, they encounter something more sinister even than the reanimated corpses that seem intent on finding and dining upon the ragtag refugees. For locked away in a secure military facility they discover that true horror is bred by the living much more efficiently than the dead. But hidden within the misery is the unthinkable…an anomaly that could lead to a zombie vaccine. This collection includes issues #7 – 12 of the Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath series.
