THE LIVING TEXT? Now she has a tummy full of words? Oh noes. :( :( :(

It is thirty-eight years after the Etheric Invasion.

In the West Atlantic Desert, fledgling daemonatrix Fringe loses a duel with Tommy Zero, who claims her solitary daemon as a prize: the adorable flower-generating Fluffbumble. Oh noes!

If you don’t know what any of that means, Kieron Gillen and Nahuel Lopez want to tell you in Modded, the next issue of Cinema Purgatorio, coming soon. And here’s an eyeball full of upcoming art to go along with that tummy full of words.

UBER: Invasion #2 by Kieron Gillen and Daniel Gete – Preview

UberInv2-reg

America’s formerly unassailable shores are burning, the White House is a scorch mark, and the Nazi war machine is rolling over the world. The horror of global war is intensified a thousand times over as living weapons with more power than atomic bombs level everything in sight. World War II is dangerously close to wiping out the human race and the Allies have all but been broken. Is there a way to turn back the tide against a German onslaught that seems to be a step ahead of everyone in the creation of Ubers and their deployment?

I’m sure you’ve been wondering… where can this possibly go after the shock and devistation of issue #1?  Well, here’s a quick look at the opening of #2 — if you dare!  Spoilers, obviously.   Uber: Invasion #2 will be in stores around the end of this month.

Alan Moore & HP Lovecraft’s Scary, Scarce Century: Limitless Secrets for a Limited Time

providence-raulo-cover-09-HPL“The One Who Is Possessed By The Old Ones And Whose Art is Inspired By The Old Ones”

Originally conceived as a set of images by Francisco Raúl Cáceres Anillo, a mad artist of Cordoba, Spain who is said to have been born during the times of the Caliphate of Cordoba, when Abd-ar-Rahman came there intent on regaining his power. Whether he brought a copy of Abdul Ahazed‘s Necronomicon with him when he left Damascus is a matter of some debate — as is artist Raulo Caceres‘ precise relationship to Francisco Raúl Cáceres Anillo of that era — but that the almost inconceivably intense work is vividly and directly influenced by the work of Abdul Ahazed is indisputable.

The ultimate package, all ten of the Century covers, at a huge discount, and limited to 26 Lettered Sets (A-Z)!

The ultimate in rarity comes to Providence! These special Century Editions on #11 features all new images from Raulo Caceres illustrating scenes from seminal Lovecraft works that influenced Providence! But don’t blink, this set of ten books are all crazy rare and will vanish! Each Century Edition ships in a bag and board for protection and is very limited, only 100 copies available of each cover!

Special Holiday shipping news – All orders for this item will be shipping Dec 12, so plenty of time to get it delivered for the holidays!

Avatar’s Feast of Fear

chroniclesWormwoodTPBContinuing our theme of horror stories to read over the holidays, today we turn to another under appreciated Garth Ennis masterpiece.  The Chronicles of Wormwood are essential reading for Preacher fans.  This series about the returned Anti-Christ Chronicles of Wormwoodis everything you would hope it would be.  It is riotously irreverent and the horror is deep rooted in religious beliefs.  Volume One is illustrated by Jacen Burrows, who also brought to life the original Crossed series and currently Alan Moore’s masterpiece Providence.

If you are missing Preacher on TV or simply want to read more of Ennis at his very best, make sure you check with your local comic shop, Amazon, or on ComCav.net to find copies of the Chronicles of Wormwood TPBs.

Friday Reading – Ignition City

Ignition City TpIt’s Friday and what better way to roll into the weekend is there than having a fantastic comic book series to read over the weekend.  Today we are discussing one of my all-time favorites – a Warren Ellis series that should appeal to both fans of classic pulps and to Firefly/Serenity collectors.

This is Ellis at his very best.  Where do all the old pulp heroes go when they are old and their glory days are behind them?  To Ignition City – the last spaceport and graveyard of the great swashbuckling pilots and adventurers.  Mary Raven has come in search of the man that killed her father.  And the outlaws that still stain the town have her in their sights.  This is Ellis redefining genres at his best and a true must read series.

You can find the trade paperback collection at your local comic shop, on Amazon, or at ComCav.net.
