Bullseye Perfect Game #1 (of 2)
By: Charlie Huston, Shawn Martinbrough, Tim Bradstreet
There was a year when no one knew where he was. When Bullseye – the world’s greatest assassin – simply vanished without a trace. In the glare of the white hot lights, no one noticed the lanky stranger with the rubber arm, throwing heat that could, well, take off a man’s head.
See, every man needs a challenge, a moment when he faces impossible odds, when he looks deep inside himself and sees what he’s really made of. Bullseye’s next pitch is one for the history books.
By: Jason Lutes
The beginning of the third book of the acclaimed historical trilogy!
Kurt Severing, having forsaken his career as a writer, is a lost man. He finds himself drawn to the Communist party, the only viable opposition to the National Socialists, who in the election of 1930 have gained legitimacy in the national government.
Silvia Braun, bent on asserting her strength in memory of her murdered mother, comes into her own as a Communist street fighter, compromising her relationship with the Jewish family that has taken her under its wing. And the true nature of the relationship between Marthe Muller and Anna Albrecht is discovered when their landlady surprises them in bed together.

Providing insight into the famed Cthulhu mythos of H. P. Lovecraft as well as the countless mythical threats that creep among Earth’s population, this comprehensive handbook explores the transdimensional beings, subterranean creatures, and fantastical beasts that lurk in the corners of time. From encounters with Barnabas Marsh and Wilbur Whateley to dangerous seaside communities, this witty exploration covers the multitude of imaginary dangers, escape options, and chances of survival when confronting these horrors. Shoggoths, Nightgaunts, ghouls, and Cthulhu all have ventured into popular culture in the form of cuddly toys, but as this entertaining overview proves, these monsters are not so warm and fuzzy when met face-to-face, face-to-muzzle, or face-to-tentacles. Authoritative and hilarious, this “survival guide” sheds light on the mysterious and often unimaginable world of Cthulhu.
