Kieron Gillen Comes to Crossed #75

Crossed75-regThe celebration of this year’s annual C-Day party in local comic shops begins with a new scribe telling a unique story in Crossed: Badlands #75.  This year’s focal point of all things Crossed is a tale told in two times – the present and the ancient past.  “Homo Tortor” reveals the reason behind Crossed75-HomoTortorhumanity’s near extinction 75,000 years ago and how it is related to the current Crossed outbreak.

Kieron Gillen is well known for the horrors of super human warfare in the pages of Uber.  As he makes his first entry into Garth Ennis’ grueling world of survival horror, fans of the series are readying for the celebrations taking place at comic shops everywhere.  This April 15th Crossed75-Ritualfans will descend upon the comic shop in their best Crossed cosplay to celebrate this horror icon and to spread the word about the most violent uncensored comic being published.

Check with your local comic shop to see what plans they have for C-Day 2015 and join in the terror!

Uber Revelations

Uber22-regKieon Gillen’s world of Uber has taken the comic community by storm.  In the pages of its altered history epic, the mysteries of this extended World War have become as important as the deadly consequences of the development of super soldiers.  One of the biggest Uber22-Propagandamysteries is exactly what happened to Hitler after he was presumed killed at the hands of one of his Battleships.

As we’ve seen the rejuvenated Fuhrer preparing some master plans we’ve wondered how it is that he lives and that his attitude seems more…stable than before.  That mystery is finally uncovered in Uber #22 which is on sale in comic shops today.  And the answer is a mystifying two fold Uber22-WarCrimesconspiracy that ties into other parts of the skittering Uber creature.

If you have not tried Uber, stop by your local comic shop to pick up the latest issue and catch up with the trade paperbacks from the first chapters.  You won’t believe what you’ve been missing!
