Comics & Graphic Novels / Horror
9781401252434, 1401252435

Summary: THE NAMES is a contemporary thriller that starts off as a revenge story: A deadly heroine ticks off—and kills—each “name” that brings her closer to knowing who killed her husband. It will become much more than that…
The world of THE NAMES is Big Money. Hedge funds, leveraged buyouts, market raids, flash buys. Incredibly high end deals that ruin lives and economies, where secret cabals gamble with people’s lives and jaded billionaires find their kicks the only way they know how. The idea is to take what’s REALLY GOING in the poisonous, deadly world of high speed, high stakes finance but really TURN IT UP, push it to the edge and make it sexy, dramatic, and thoroughly deadly.
It’s about righting all the wrongs by any means necessary. It’s KILL BILL meets WOLF OF WALL ST. in a world that’s become Too Big to Fail. It’s a relentless thriller that seeks to unlock the DA VINCI CODE that lies at the center of the world’s finances as the people who really pull the strings in the world finally get what’s coming to them.
The world of high finance has a profound but mysterious effect on all of our lives, yet is understood by too few of us. PETER MILLIGAN, an incredibly talented writer who’s always been able to mine the zeitgeist for memorable stories, wants to create a compelling drama set in this world. LEO FERNANDEZ will bring a slick, sexy visual appeal and together make this another must-read book for VERTIGO.

Summary: In the near future, America’s worst nightmare has come true. With military adventurism overseas bogging down the Army and National Guard, the U.S. government mistakenly neglects the very real threat of anti-establishment militias scattered across the 50 states. Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand—Manhattan or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ.
In this volume, journalist Matty Roth redefines his role in the DMZ, rolling with a private security force and self-defined mandate to heal the city. But is this the start of a brand-new day – or will this “Rise of Matty” end with the fall of just another petty warlord? Then, Matty retreats into self-exile forces to take a good, hard look at himself and his conduct since he entered the DMZ, and he doesn’t like what he sees.

Contributor Bio:
William Finger was born on February 8, 1914. He met cartoonist Bob Kane at a party in 1938, and soon after they were collaborating on several adventure strips. Within a year, Batman appeared. Finger’s fondness for pulp fiction and movies influenced his plots and writing style for comic books. He worked on many other DC characters and titles, scripted some of the 1940s daily and Sunday Batman and Robin newspaper strip continuities, and wrote for Quality, Fawcett and Timely.
Finger’s television credits include 77 Sunset Strip, The Roaring Twenties and Hawaiian Eye during the late 1950s and early 1960s. His efforts in the super-hero genre also appeared on TV in the 1960s, including material for the animated New Adventures of Superman plus a two-part Clock King episode of the 1966 Batman series. Finger died in New York City on January 24, 1974. He was posthumously inducted into the Eisner Awards Hall of Fame in 1999.

Preview: The Walking Dead: All Out War Artist Proof Edition

THE WALKING DEAD: ALL OUT WAR ARTIST PROOF EDITION
THE WALKING DEAD: ALL OUT WAR ARTIST PROOF EDITION

Media Release — In October, fans of Robert Kirkman’s THE WALKING DEAD will see the New York Times bestselling comic as never before with the publication of THE WALKING DEAD: ALL OUT WAR ARTIST PROOF EDITION. In this 248-page hardcover from Image Comics/Skybound, artist Charlie Adlard’s raw pencils for the twelve-issue arc are reproduced, uninked and unaltered from how they appear on his artboard.

The ALL OUT WAR story arc marks a major turning point in THE WALKING DEAD, as Rick Grimes unites several communities to fight the villainous Negan and his “Saviors,” while around them the dead continue to roam. The future of the Survivors, Hilltop, and Kingdom depends precariously on Negan’s right-hand man, who has turned against him — and not everyone is going to see it through the war alive.

“I’ve always enjoyed books that show the ‘process,’ and All Out War certainly does that,” said Adlard. “Presenting the pencils as they are is an interesting thing, because they were done to show an inker what to do. So, at times, they are rough, fudged, incorrect… etc, but hopefully still provide an insight as to what goes into making a comic book.”

Adlard has penciled and inked more than one hundred issues of THE WALKING DEAD. Inker Stefano Gaudiano was brought onto the art team (which includes toner Cliff Rathburn and letterer Rus Wooton) at the start of the ALL OUT WAR story arc.

“And just sometimes it’s nice not to have a finished thing,” continued Adlard. “To be able to see the little bits of ‘magic’ occurring in the happy accidents of random pencil marks, which were never intended for anyone other than Stefano to see, where I wasn’t caring that it would be seen by a wider audience, makes it all a little bit bolder.”

ALL OUT WAR has never before been collected in a single volume, and this edition presents the monumental story in a whole new way. THE WALKING DEAD: ALL OUT WAR ARTIST PROOF EDITION will be in comic book stores on October 1 and in bookstores on October 8. It is available for pre-order now.

3 Collected Editions Worth Buying From the Dark Horse November 2014 Solicitations

The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 18 TP
The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 18 TP

Let’s take a look at three of the Dark Horse November 2014 Solicitations.

The EC Archives: The Vault of Horror Volume 4 HC
216 pages, $49.99, collects Vault of Horror #30–#35
This is the sixth volume of Dark Horse’s EC Archives since they picked up the series from GC Press LLC. So far I’ve been impressed and it looks like the entire horror line will get reprinted now that there is some money behind the effort. It will be interesting to see if Dark Horse will go back and reprint the first 15 volumes from Gemstone and GC in their own style. One thing is for certain, the EC Archive are on a better schedule then the previous publishers as we are getting a new volume every other month. When this volume is released, there will be 21 volumes, which is nearly halfway to a complete set.

Eerie Archives Volume 18 HC
256 pages, $49.99, collects Eerie #86-#89
As with the EC Archives, Dark Horse is determined to keep publishing the Eerie (and Creepy) Archive Editions on a regular schedule. Eerie ran until issue #139, so they are over halfway to the end. Think it’s too late to get on the bandwagon and collect these? Nope, there are are in print.

The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 18 TP
560 pages, $19.99, collects Marvel’s The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian #181–#190
I know several people who swear by these “phone books” from Dark Horse that collect the classic Marvel material. The artwork comes across just fine and some bay better than the counterparts from DC (Showcase Presents) and Marvel (Essentials).
