The Punisher #1

A by-the-numbers drug bust is about to take Frank Castle by surprise…and he hates surprises. The horrible fallout threatens to send The Punisher into the heart of darkness, but Castle won’t make that journey alone: A DEA agent is on his trail and attempting to get into his head…but what horrors will she find there, and will she survive the experience?

Marvel Comics



Cinema Purgatorio #1

Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill take a trip through the dark recesses of cinema, the people behind it, the damage it has done, and the story of one woman forced to bare her soul, one short film at a time. Every issue and every story is radically different yet all weaved into one tapestry of breathtaking complexity as only Alan Moore could do.

Avatar Press



3 Floyds: Alpha King #1

Set a long time ago in a suburb far, far away (Munster, Indiana), Brewer and CiCi are producing a home-brew so distinct that it attracts a monstrous king and his horrid minions from another dimension. Swords are unsheathed, lines are crossed, and sieges are laid for the rise of the Alpha King!
