Mike Costa Reveals God’s Killer in Book of Acts Omega

god-is-dead-boa-omega-end-of-daysThe central mystery to the return of the ancient gods is finally revealed as series writer Mike Costa delivers the devastating revelation in God is Dead: Book of Acts Omega.  This second volume features additional stories by Uber’s Kieron Gillen and Crossed’s Justin Jordan as well in an over-sized sacrilegious tome.

 

 

Kieron Gillen takes us on a hellish trip to meet “Alastor: Hell’s Executioner” in a tale that is wickedly funny and god-is-dead-boa-omega-WRAPbrutally violent.  Who will take advantage of the death of the one true God?  Petty demons and the devilish rank and file must decide how to exploit their greatest foe’s demise.

god-is-dead-boa-omega-iconic

 

Justin Jordan delivers a devious story in “The Great God Pan.”  In true EC Tales From the Crypt style, Pan taunts a cursed woman and whispers the great secret of the divine.  Why…you ask, you’ll need to read to the end to understand that simple revelation.

God is Dead: Book of Acts Omega is in comic shops and available digitally today.

New In August Previews – Crossed Vol 10 TPB

CrossedVol10HCGarth Ennis’ long awaited patient zero story, “The Thin Red Line” from the recent Crossed: Badlands #50 – 56 run is collected in Crossed Vol 10 Trade Paperback this month in the August issue of Previews.  If you were one of the thousands of fans who were waiting to get some clues from the creator of the Crossed universe as to how and where the plague began, this is your chance to experience the terror alongside your fellow infected.

 

Crossed Vol 10 TPB & HC

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:      GARTH ENNIS returns to the horrifyingly brutal world he CrossedVol10TPBcreated with a story that fans have waited over five years for!  The Crossed outbreak created a miserable grueling world of monsters that dash out all hope of survival and ensures a terrifying end to everything in their path.  For the first time, master storyteller Garth Ennis takes you back to the early days of outbreak and delivers the unexpected – a patient zero tale.  With the outbreak spreading like wildfire across the globe, a group of soldiers attempt to piece together how the disease spread so quickly and to reverse the horror they see taking place in the streets.  And as they struggle to catch up with events, a fleet of nuclear-armed planes carry the extinction of the human race as they race towards America, with only one British flight crew to stand in their way.  No one can deliver this level of poignant horror like Garth Ennis.  In a world where there is no help and there is no hope…there is only the Crossed.  Crossed Vol 10 collects the story Thin Red Line from issues 50 – 56 of the ongoing Crossed: Badlands series.  Available as both a TPB and Hardcover.

Check with your local comics retailer to reserve a copy of this vital part of the Crossed mythology.  Crossed Vol 10 TPB is on sale in October.

San Diego Crossed Cosplay

One of the best things about San Diego Comic Con is enjoying all unique cosplay costumes you get to see.  From the very creative to the amazingly imaginative, you can easily see all the hard work and effort these fans put into their craft.

And at every show Avatar attends there are a handful of Crossed running around causing mayhem and promoting the series they support.  We met these great fans and cosplayers during the show and were inspired by their passion for horror.

If you have pictures you want to share of your Crossed or Avatar Press character cosplay, send them in to jim@avatarpress.net and we’ll post them up for all to see.  Thanks for your support.
