Terrifying Second Chapter of Uber Collected

Uber-Vol-2-TPBKieron Gillen’s Uber has been a terrifying glimpse into a dark world where the horror of enhanced human warfare has spun the second World War out of control.  There is no peace or end to hostilities.  Only a grueling and miserable march toward what feels like the utter annihilation of the human race.

The second ground breaking chapter of the series is collected in the Uber Vol 2 TPB, solicited in the July issue of Previews.  This second volume packs 160 pages of powerful story and extras into a collection that has earned a place next to the very best super solider stories of the past 75 years.

Rover Red Charlie TP New in July Previews

RoverRedCharlie-Vol-1-TPBGarth Ennis is a master of storytelling in every genre.  He conquered horror with titles like Crossed and Caliban, tackled action with Stitched and War Stories, and defeated perhaps the most challenging of all, humor with Dicks and The Boys.  But never before has he so flawlessly combined all genres to tell a truly inspiring story as he has in the pages of Rover Red Charlie.

Fans and creators alike are calling this story one of the best of the last year.  And the book received an incredible endorsement from perhaps the biggest writer in all of comics, Alan Moore -

“In Rover Red Charlie, an uncomprehending dog’s-eye view of the apocalypse, perhaps the medium’s finest writer essays a breathtaking feat of the imagination with enormous heart, and not a trace of sentiment.  Given a damp and warm reality by Michael DiPascale’s beautifully judged art, Garth Ennis manages, with hardly any homo sapiens in sight, to tell what is quite possibly the most profoundly human story of his already astonishing career.  This is a book for life, not just for Christmas.”

Ask your local comic shop to reserve a copy of the upcoming Rover Red Charlie TP today.
