Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell continue their comprehensive review of the life and art of Alex Toth in Genius, Illustrated. Covering the years from the 1960s to Toth’s poignant death in 2006, this oversized book features artwork and complete stories from Toth’s latter-day work at Warren, DC Comics, Red Circle, Marvel, and his own creator-owner properties plus samples of his animation work for Hanna-Barbera, Ruby-Spears, and others-as well as sketchbook pages, doodles, advertising art, and other rarities provided through the cooperation of Toth’s family and his legion of fans. Two of Toth’s best stories are reproduced complete from the original artwork: ‘Burma Skies’ and ‘White Devil Yellow Devil.’ A full-length text biography will chart the path from Toth’s increasingly reclusive lifestyle to his touching re-connection to the world in his final years. Fans of comics, cartoons, and all-around great artwork revere Alex Toth. See why Genius, Illustrated-along with its companion volume, 2011’s Genius, Isolated-are being praised as the definitive examination of the life and art of The Master, Alex Toth!

Written by the Eisner Award-winning team of Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell-who produced Scorchy Smith and the Art of Noel Sickles-Genius, Isolated includes many examples of Toth’s art, from his earliest stories at DC in the 1940s, his defining work at Standard, his incomparable Zorro comics in the 1950s, examples from his thousands of drawings for animation studios, through his mature-and some say best-work, such as Bravo For Adventure, in the 1970s and ’80s. A special section collects, for the first time, the complete Jon Fury pages that Toth produced while in the army, a section that alone is worth the price of admission. To flesh out the complete story of his life and art, Mullaney and Canwell have conducted wide-ranging interviews with dozens of Toth’s peers, friends, and family members.

His name is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a feared warrior spoken of only in whispers. Bearer of a gigantic sword, an iron hand, and the scars of countless battles and tortures, his flesh is also indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that draws the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice. But Guts won’t take his fate lying down; he’ll cut a crimson swath of carnage through the ranks of the damned — and anyone else foolish enough to oppose him! Accompanied by Puck the Elf, more an annoyance than a companion, Guts relentlessly follows a dark, bloodstained path that leads only to death…or vengeance. Created by Kenturo Miura, Berserk is manga mayhem to the extreme — violent, horrifying, and mercilessly funny — and the wellspring for the internationally popular anime series. Not for the squeamish or the easily offended, Berserk asks for no quarter — and offers none! * Dark Horse brings an English translation of Berserk to the US for the very first time! * The Dark Horse version of Berserk will be published in the original Japanese format! * One of the most eagerly anticipated manga properties in recent years, Berserk was originally published in Japan and has been serialized in Young Animal Magazine since the early 1990’s. * Berserk will be shipped shrink-wrapped with a content advisory printed on the back cover.

But Griffith was once a man, the leader of the Hawks, a renowned cadre of elite fighters with a young Guts as its fiercest champion. Though forged in a crucible of cruelty and violence, nothing could prepare Guts for a confrontation with Nosferatu Zodd, a superhuman beast who slaughters Guts’ comrades as easily as a scythe cuts wheat. Even Guts and Griffith are no match for the abomination’s power … but something Griffith wears around his neck may well be!

From Adam Warren (writer/artist of the English-language The Dirty Pair comics, and writer of Livewires, Gen13, and Iron Man: Hypervelocity) comes Empowered, a butt-kicking, bootylicious superhero lampoon that raises the bar for long-john lust and lowbrow laughs. Remove all previous notions of superhero entertainment from your puny mind and prepare to be empowered! Not only is costumed crime fighter Empowered saddled with a less-than-ideal superhero name, but she also wears a skintight and cruelly revealing supersuit that only magnifies her body-image insecurities. Worse yet, the suit’s unreliable powers are prone to failure, repeatedly leaving her in appallingly distressing situations and giving her a shameful reputation as the lamest ‘cape’ in the masks-and-tights business. Nonetheless, she pluckily braves the ordeals of her bottom-rung superheroic life with the help of her ‘thugalicious’ boyfriend (and former Witless Minion) and her hard-drinking ninja girlfriend, not to mention the supervillainous advice from the caged alien demonlord watching DVDs from atop her coffee table. ‘One of the most laugh-out-loud-funny works I’ve read in years.’-Rob Vollmar, Comics Worth Reading ‘Stellar art, great character work, a sense of humor-Empowered has it all.’-Newsarama ‘Empowered is Adam Warren’s best work yet-it’s naughty but sweet, and REALLY funny, and the characters are just immensely appealing and likeable. Terrific, terrific stuff.’-Bruce Timm, producer of Batman: The Animated Series Warren’s skill as a writer has brought him a variety of high-profile assignments from WildStorm, DC, and Marvel. For mature readers only!

It’s not easy being Hattori Hanzo. If he’s not teaching Leyasu, the young, future shogun, how to love, then he’s behind the scenes, teaching Leyasu how not to die in case of a momentary lapse of protection. If you thought you had a tough job, try taking a pudgy, protected youngster, and making him into the leader who will unite Japan under his single rule. From the creators of Lone Wolf & Cub comes a series about two young men bound to a nation’s potential future at a time when Japan was in transition from a warlike feudal state into an era of bureacracy and infighting. Another quasi-historical tale from the masters of Japanese samurai culture, Path of the Assassin shows a side of feudal Japan that entertains with action as well as political drama.

Yes, we have them all in one informative, semi-historical series from the famed creators of Lone Wolf and Cub, Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima. It’s the story of to-be shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, in his late teens, battling and politicking his way to the leadership of Edo-era Japan. To do so, he must survive assasination attempts, political sabotage, bloody battlefields, and a ferocious wife. And he does this with the help of his friend and vassal, the unstoppable ninja Hattori Hanzo. Heard these names before? That’s because they’re a revered part of Japan’s (sometimes secret) past!

The martial world of feudal 16th Century Japan is not only a tapestry of honor, politics, intrigue, and violence. It is also an intricate fabric woven with family, spirit, love . . . and sex.

Created by legendary Lone Wolf and Cub creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, Path of the Assassin is adult manga at its most challenging-violent, complex, and boldly erotic.

All of the action, suspense, political intrigue, and love will come to an end. But before Ieyasu can claim his position, there will be much misery, murder, and tragedy on this already blood-soaked road. The path to the shogunate is a long and arduous journey, made easier by such a vassal as Hattori Hanzo, but in this last volume of Path of the Assassin, Koike and Kojima will tell us just how difficult that journey can be. ‘Instead of the many stories of the episodic Samurai Assassin, Koike and Kojima are unfolding a huge story arc, with comparable artfulness.’ -Booklist Path of the Assassin 1972 by KAZUO KOIKE/GOSEKI KOJIMA.

Traveling in Arabia as an Ambassador from the exiled FABLES community, Snow White is captured by the local sultan who wants to marry her (and then kill her). But the clever Snow attempts to charm the sultan instead by playing Scheherazade, telling him fantastic stories for a total of 1,001 nights. Running the gamut from horror to dark intrigue to mercurial coming-of-age, FABLES:1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL reveals the secret histories of familiar FABLES characters through a series of compelling and visually illustrative tales.

And, on her own, she will plot revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that nearly destroyed her life.

‘It’s everything a fan of the series could want – and everything a non-fan could need to get initiated.’ – IO9 ‘Willingham manages to merge the gentle, meandering feel of fairy tales with a breakneck, contemporary pacing – a very clever trick indeed. The characters and stories are very engaging, the tension real, the mythos powerful.’ – Boing Boing The critically acclaimed prose novel from FABLES creator Bill Willingham – now in trade paperback! The tale takes place long ago, in the deepest dark of The Black Forest. Two brothers – Peter Piper and his older brother Max – encounter ominous forces that change them both irreparably. Thus begins an epic tale of sibling rivalry, magic, music and revenge that spans medieval times to the present day, when their deadly conflict surfaces in the placid calm of modern day Fabletown. PETER & MAX: A FABLES NOVEL features the prose of award-winning comic book writer Bill Willingham and the lush ink drawings of FABLES artist Steve Leialoha. The novel also reveals secrets of some of the regular FABLES series cast members including Bigby Wolf, Frau Totenkinder and Bo Peep, along with an 8-page comics story by Willingham and Leialoha!
