Logans Run #1

Before his life ends he’s got one final mission: Find and destroy Sanctuary, a fabled haven for those that chose to defy the system. William F. Nolan’s masterpiece of dystopian future once again races into the 23rd Century with this all-new adaptation of Logan’s Run.

Almost Silent HC
Almost Silent packages four original Jason graphic novels–three of them out of print since mid-2008–into one compact, hardcover omnibus collection. (As the title indicates, this volume favors Jason’s pantomime works.) ‘You Can’t Get There From Here,’ the longest story of the book (and the only one to be printed in color–well, a color), tells the tale of a love triangle involving Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s Monster, and The Monster’s Bride.
Jason cleverly alternates between totally silent sequences involving the three characters and scenes in which Frankenstein’s hunchbacked assistant discusses the day’s events with a fellow hunchbacked assistant to another mad scientist. (You didn’t know they had a union?) ‘Tell Me Something’ is a brisk (271 panels), near-totally-silent (just a few intertitles) graphic novelette about love lost and found again, told with a tricky mixture of forward–and back-flashing narrative.
‘Meow, Baby’ is a collection of Jason’s short stories and gags, and finally, ‘The Living and the Dead’ is a hilariously deadpan (and gory) take on the traditional Romero-style zombie thriller. All of these yarns star Jason’s patented cast of tight-lipped (or -beaked) bird-, dog-, cat- and wolf-people, and show off his compassion and wry wit.
Almost Silent is a perfect starting point for a new reader wanting to know what the fuss is all about, and a handsome, handy, inexpensive collection for the committed Jason fan.
Black Panther: Power
By: Jonathan Maberry, R. Hudlin, Will Conrad, Greg Land
Wakanda has been attacked on every front. Heroes have fallen, old alliances have been betrayed, the country is in turmoil. Now is the time for the new Black Panther to rise and make a stand against threats both foreign and domestic. ‘Power’ is a bold new direction for the Panther, written by celebrated producer-director Reginald Hudlin and multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry (Patient Zero, PUNISHER: NAKED KILL). New game, new rules, and lots of surprises as the new Black Panther is set on a collision course with one of the Marvel Universe’s most feared and powerful beings.

Fantastic Four In Search Galactus Prem HC
By: Marv Wolfman, S. Buscema, J. Byrnes, Al Milgrom & Keith Pollard
One of Marvelous Marv’s most astonishing sagas! The Fantastic Four have been fighting Skrulls since #2–and, somehow, it just never gets old . . . unlike the FF themselves! An aging ray has three-quarters of the foursome at death’s door, but they’ll fight the Skrulls to the finish alongside Nova and the Champions of Xandar–at least until a greater threat rises from the Champions’ own ranks!
The Sphinx is ready to conquer the world, and Mr. Fantastic knows of only one opponent who can stop him: Galactus, who just wants to DESTROY the world instead! Includes the first appearances of Terrax the Tamer and H.E.R.B.I.E. the robot – but which one will prove the greater threat? Also featuring Spider-Man, Medusa, S.H.I.E.L.D. and cameos from across the chronicles of history!

Fantastic Four #204-214
Doomwar #1 (of 5)
By: Jonathan Maberry, Scott Eaton, Will Conrad, John Romita Jr.
Wakanda has been conquered, its Vibranium reserves plundered. Storm faces execution in the next 48 hours. And Dr. Doom stands triumphant. It will take the combined forces of the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the two Black Panthers to stand against him. A war has begun that will pit the world’s most relentless super-villain against a collection of the world’s most powerful super heroes — one that will span the globe, offering twists and turns and surprise players (hello, Deadpool!) that neither side will see coming.
Created by comics great Dave Stevens as an homage to classic pulp heroes of the 30′s and 40′s, The Rocketeer became an instant classic. The retro tale of stunt pilot Cliff Secord as told through Stevens’ brilliant artwork caught the attention of Walt Disney Studios, and in 1991 the character found his way to the silver screen. The Rocketeer is seen here blasting off over a brushed metal, logo base, leaving a cloud of art deco smoke (evocative of the classic movie poster). Standing approximately 16′ tall, each piece is hand-cast in high-quality polystone and hand-painted to exacting standards. Packaged in a durable foam interior and a beautiful full color package, each piece is individually numbered for authenticity.
Batman Black & White Statue Marshall Rogers
BASED ON THE ART OF MARSHALL ROGERS SCULPTED BY RAY VILLAFANE One of the greatest of all Batman artists, Marshall Rogers’ groundbreaking work in DETECTIVE COMICS, collected in the BATMAN: STRANGE APPARITIONS trade paperback, helped create the foundation on which the Batman of today is built. In this statue, Rogers’ haunting portrayal of the Dark Knight captures the intensity of Batman in a classic style. The statue measures approximately 7′ high x 6.5′ wide x 5′ deep, is painted in monochromatic tones, features a Bat-logo-shaped base and is packaged in a black and white box. Limited edition. Manufactured to order
