But it’s a deadly reunion, one that nearly takes Guts’ life. The following years see Guts wandering from battlefield to battlefield, where his awesome skills as a slayer catch the eye of both warring parties, including the legendary Griffith, warrior leader of the Band of the Hawk, who is eager to test his combat skills against those of the Black Swordsman.

Cover Artist: Miura, Kentaro
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.

Guts, the feared Black Swordsman, finishes his desperate battle with the monstrous Count, but the Count’s dying pleas activate the Behelit, summoning the five God Hands, demon lords of immeasurable power. Guts’ journey so far has been a long road of pain and death, but it’s a walk in the park compared to fighting his way out of Hell itself! Created by Kenturo Miura, Berserk is exactly what its title advertises; a savage, gruesome, and often humorous roller-coaster ride, inspiring the internationally popular anime series. Each volume of Berserk comes shrink-wrapped and carries a cover content advisory. 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 1990s.

He is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a warrior of legendary prowess-relentless, fearless, merciless. As cold and brutal as the iron of the massive sword he wields. Bent on revenge against the unholy forces that have branded him for sacrifice, but especially on Griffith, one of the demon lords of the Godhand. 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! 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 1990s.

Empowered returns for further misadventures, as a distress-prone girl wonder struggles with life on the superheroic C-list! Clad-or unclad, as fate would too often have it-in her embarrassingly revealing and maddeningly unreliable supersuit, she fights a neverending battle against overly sensitive supervillains, irrationally envious superheroines, and her own body-image issues! Meanwhile, her boyfriend, Thugboy, plays with fire when he foolhardily attempts to compliment his profoundly insecure sweetheart on the awe-inspiring power of her . . . well, booty. And her often-inebriated gal-pal, Ninjette, pursues a drunken and ultimately disastrous mission to acquire Empowered some respect-by force if necessary! All this, plus crossword-obsessed goons, speech-impaired superbeasts, ‘Ninjas Gone Wild,’ and even a few self-help hints from nigh-omnipotent cosmic overlords! You know, the usual.

Costumed crimefighter Empowered is briefly overjoyed to find herself in the running for one of the superhero community’s annual Caped Justice Awards (or ‘Capeys’)-only to discover that her nomination was merely a cruel joke by her obnoxious superpeers. But when the masked masses face a cataclysmic reckoning for previous heartless hoaxes, can our perpetually struggling heroine overcome her resentment and save the day? And can she cope with the further problems posed by cross-dressing vigilantes, dying wishes from preteen wannabe supervillains, telepathic ‘booty calls,’ a deeply depressed ninja, bedroom ‘cosplay’ conflicts with her boyfriend, and even . . . Hummer fu? From Adam Warren-writer/artist of the English-language Dirty Pair comics (the original ‘Original English-Language Manga’)-comes Empowered, a gut-busting gag-fest of life in the superhero slow lane. Dump your boxes of prefab power-fantasy pamphlets and load up on Empowered!

After a fiery disaster claims the lives of several teammates, costumed crimefighter Empowered stumbles upon an ugly little secret of the masks-and-tights business: a growing number of ill-fated superheroes have found out the hard way that, while their bodies are still mortal, their superpowers are not . . . Now, only our downtrodden but doggedly determined heroine can save the (semi)living superdead from a very genuine ‘fate worse than death,’ while simultaneously grappling with the challenges of vengefully vacationing ninja clans, car-trunk carpet burn, superhero-fantasy-league drafts, excessive bedroom chatter, and deals with the devil both figurative and literal! All this, plus Emp’s not-so-secret origin is revealed at last! o Adam Warren’s work on The Dirty Pair is well known to U.S. comics readers. ‘A sort of R-rated sitcom exploring geek culture from the inside out, Empowered has its cake and eats it too-it’s full of exploitative, titillating imagery, but it also features the healthiest and the most realistic romantic relationship in any comic book featuring capes and masks.’ -J. Caleb Mozzocco, Las Vegas Weekly

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!

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.

In the politics, struggles, and battles that lead to the birth of a nation, sometimes even good people must die at the hands of allies. And now it’s down to only a few warlords of Edo-era Japan.

Koike and Kojima’s tale of how the ninja Hattori Hanzo helped Tokugawa Ieyasu become the shogun who united Japan is in its fifteenth and final volume. 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.

The march continues as Japan’s future shogun moves to the center of Japan to claim it as his own. But along the way he’ll have to deal with intense and complicated politics, strange and sometimes perverted fighting techniques, and a rapidly changing samurai culture in old Japan. And often the history of Japan all rests on the wiles of shogun-to-be Ieyasu’s clever and loyal ninja, Hattori Hanzo. Lone Wolf & Cub creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima are experts at weaving an intense and sometimes oddly sensational yarn, and this quasi-historical tale of a young man’s rise to the top of samurai politics doesn’t pull any punches.

Don’t miss a new softcover edition of the acclaimed hardcover graphic novel from FABLES creator Bill Willingham and a star-studded array of artists! This volume, set in the early days of Fabletown, long before the FABLES series began, featuring sequences illustrated by Charles Vess, Brian Bolland, John Bolton, Michael Wm. Kaluta, James Jean, Mark Buckingham, Jill Thompson and more, 1,001 NIGHTS OF SNOWFALL is both an entry point to the critically acclaimed series and an essential part of Willingham’s enchanting and imaginative FABLES mythos. 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.

DC Comics Fall 2015 Collection Solicitations

Alrighty folks, here’s the big one. DC’s collections for the Fall months of 2015. There’s a lot of cool stuff in here so I’m going to separate it all into categories and then say a few words about most of the stuff in there. So let’s get to it, because there’s a lot to get to.

Absolute Editions:

  • Absolute Court of Owls – We just learned about this one with DC’s most recently solicits, so nothing new here.
  • Absolute Green Lantern/Green Arrow – This one’s exciting for sure. Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams’ classic run is collected here, and while I’m not usually one for Absolutes I’m definitely going to have to jump on this one.

Omnibus:

  • Neal Adams Omnibus – The only Omnibus present here is the re-solicit for the Neal Adams Omnibus containing all his Batman material.

Deluxe Editions:

  • Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – I’m pretty glad they’re going back and releasing Deluxe Editions for a lot of these classic stories because many of them I only own in TPB, and I’m not really looking to cough up the dough on an Absolute that’s out of print at the moment.
  • Batman Year 100 – Another Batman book gets the Deluxe treatment, and makes me glad I held off on purchasing Paul Pope’s modern classic all this time. I love Pope and his style, so this one is sure to look fantastic on those Deluxe sized pages.
  • Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman: Trinity – I really don’t know anything about this story by Matt Wagner, but this is sure to be coinciding with the upcoming Batman V Superman movie given it features all three characters. I have to wonder if Wagner’s other Batman stories get the same treatment later on.
  • Crisis on Infinite Earths – This really is my favorite event that DC has ever done. So much happens and the art is just timeless and fantastic. I glad this is getting the OHC treatment because it really deserves it, and Perez’s highly detailed art will look great on those oversized pages.
  • DMZ: The Deluxe Edition Book Five – I believe this tops off the Deluxe Editions for this series from Vertigo.
  • Fables The Deluxe Edition Book Eleven
  • Green Arrow by Jeff Lemire  – Now this one has me very excited. I loved this run on Green Arrow, and I was hoping we’d see it in some sort of oversized collection but I had figured that was a pipe dream. What’s cool is that it’s not the only New 52 Deluxe Edition we see in these solicits.
  • Kid Eternity – Grant Morrison’s old three part story with Duncan Fregedo is a great one, and one I’m happy to see get this treatment, but at this point it looks like DC and Vertigo are just stretching themselves to make sure that everything Morrison has ever done is printed on oversized pages in one way or another.
  • Multiversity – And speaking of Morrison… but this was obviously going to happen, and I had absolutely no doubt about it. I’ve loved Multiversity. I wouldn’t hesitate to name it as one of the best series of the year, and as a contender to take the top spot as far as DC events go for me. It has really reminded me why I fell in love with comics to begin with. That said, I’m glad to see it get this treatment asap.
  • Sandman Overture – This was in the last group of solicits too, so at this point I think they’re just trying to get lucky as far as when Gaiman’s actually going to wrap up this miniseries prequel to his seminal series.
  • Scalped Deluxe Edition Books Two and Three – Two more of the likely five volume set appear in these solicits.
  • Swamp Thing by Scott Snyder – Here’s the other New 52 one I was mentioning. I was definitely a fan of Snyder’s run on Swamp Thing, but in many ways it was Yanick Paquette (as well as Marco Rudy) who was the star here thanks to his amazing writing. So now that the door is wide open as far as New 52 Deluxe Editions goes I’m going to be expecting a lot more from DC in the near future. Especially coming off the news of this book in particular I’d expect something for Animal Man.
  • Sweet Tooth Deluxe Edition Book One – I’ve been waiting on this for a while. Lemire tweeted to me a while back that they were in talks to make this happen, so I’m excited that it’s finally on the way. Sweet Tooth is one of my very favorite Vertigo titles, so it’s a joy to get it on oversized pages. Lemire’s artwork and storytelling is going to thrive in this format.
  • Batman Noir: Hush – These Noir books are typically Deluxe sized so I’m throwing this in here
  • Batman RIP Unwrapped – And I believe the Unwrapped ones are typically the same format.
  • Blackest Night Unwrapped

DC Digital/Other Modern Collections

So this section is basically anything that’s not a reprint of older material from DC’s Digital selection or from their various other non-New 52 titles.

  • Arrow Season 2.5
  • Batman ’66 Vol. 3
  • Batman ’66 Vol. 4
  • Batman ’66/Green Hornet
  • Batman Beyond 2.0 Vol. 3 Marked Soul
  • Batman Legends of the Dark Knight Vol. 5
  • Flash Season Zero
  • He-Man: The Eternity War Vol. 1
  • Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse Vol. 2
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us Year 2 Vol. 2

  • Scooby-Doo Team-Up Vol. 2
  • Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman Vol. 2
  • Smallville Season 11 Vol. 7: Lantern
  • Superman Adventures Vol. 1
  • Superman Earth One Vol. 3
  • Teen Titans: Earth One Vol. 1
  • Wonder Woman: A Very Selfish Princess
  • Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 1 – This is pretty much the only one in this section that I’m really pumped about. This would be the Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette Wonder Woman story that they’ve been working on for a while now. They’ve teased it, but we haven’t seen much for it, so it’s a complete surprise to actually see it solicited. Hopefully it truly will be on shelves by the end of the year!

Vertigo Collections

  • 100 Bullets Book 3
  • American Vampire Vol. 7
  • American Vampire Vol. 8
  • American Vampire Vol. 9
  • Astro City
  • Astro City Confession
  • Astro City Private Lives
  • Children’s Crusade – Apparently this only includes Neil Gaiman’s material for this Vertigo event, and not all the Annuals from the various Vertigo titles that tied into it… which is a bit disappointing.
  • Coffin Hill Vol. 3
  • Effigy Vol. 1
  • Fables: The Wolf Among Us Vol. 1
  • FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics Vol. 4
  • Flinch Book One – The beginning of trade collections of Vertigo’s 16 issue anthology series.
  • Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi
  • John Constantine Hellblazer Vol. 12 How to Play With Fire – More from the Paul Jenkins run, and likely the last volume of his material collecting from issue #121. He wrote through #128 so I have to wonder if this is going to collect a bit past that. Perhaps Garth Ennis’ “Son of Man” arc will be in here, meaning volume 13 will wind up collecting the Warren Ellis material. Now THAT, I’m looking forward to.
  • The Kitchen
  • Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Strange Sports Stories
  • Suiciders Vol. 1
  • Swamp Thing: Darker Genesis – Creators listed for this one are Will Pfeifer and Pete Woods, but the only issues I can think of by Will Pfeifer are two issues from Swamp Thing Vol. 4 between Andy Diggle and Josh Dysart’s runs. Now it would be possible DC is doing new collections of that series since it was never collected in its entirety (he Pfeifer issues and the last several issues of Dysart’s run aren’t in any of the TPB’s), but I’m not sure where Pete Woods factors in as he didn’t supply any art for that run (as far as I can recall). Either way I’d have been happier to see DC/Vertigo working on continued collections for the Millar run.
  • Wolf Moon
  • Y: The Last Man Book Three

Classic/Reprint Collections

For lack of a better name… anything that’s not a modern series getting a new TPB collection. As always, there’s a lot of interesting stuff in here.

  • Art Ops Vol. 1 – I have yet to find what this one actually is, so if anyone knows feel free to inform.
  • Bad Girls – Reprinting the Darwyn Cooke miniseries.
  • Batman Adventures Vol. 3 – A third volume for the classic comic that told stories in the universe of the animated series of the 90’s.
  • Batman Arkham: Two-Face – A collection of classic stories starring the villain Two-Face.
  • Batman v. Superman – A movie tie-in collection giving classic comics where the two characters face off against each other.
  • Batman: Road to No Man’s Land – DC’s been doing really well these past several years to release new collections to give readers a pretty solid run of all the modern Batman comics. This one would fill in a gap between the upcoming new edition of Cataclysm and the first Batman No Man’s Land collection.
  • Batman: Shaman – A new printing of the first five issues of the Legends of the Dark Knight series.
  • Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham – This one reprints a three issue Elseworlds comic from Mike Mignola.
  • Batman: War Games Vol. 1 – I had this as part of my “wish list” not terribly long ago, as this would be another good thing to add to DC’s recent complete TPB collection of modern Batman tales.
  • Birds of Prey Vol. 1 – A collection of early Birds of Prey material from Chuck Dixon.
  • Boy Commandos by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby Vol. 1
  • Catwoman Vol. 4: The One You Love – There was a lot of debate as to whether DC would go forth and collect the issues of the pre-New 52 Catwoman series post-Brubaker’s run. Well, here we finally a new collection for the first chunk of issues by writer Will Pfeifer. The series ran under his pen until it concluded at issue #82, so I really have to wonder if DC will actually put forth the work to collect the entire run. I’d expect it to take another three or four volumes to conclude the title.
  • Deathstroke The Terminator Vol. 2 – A second collection of Marv Wolfman’s series.
  • Demon: Haunted Glory – A collection of Garth Ennis’ Demon stories dealing with the origin of Hitman. Likely coming from the fact that Ennis’ has a new book coming from DC in June starring some of the characters from the series.
  • The Flash by Geoff Johns Book One – TPB reprints of Johns’ old Flash run starring Wally West. It’s not surprising that DC’s letting the Omnibus’ go out of print knowing that they’re printing the series in these TPB collections. I’m hoping, though, that we see his later material with Barry Allen also published as part of this line.
  • Graphic Ink: Darwyn Cooke
  • Green Arrow Vol. 4: Blood of the Dragon – Another collection of Grell’s 80’s series. Every passing group of solicits I’m hoping more and more that we see a volume of this series announced because it would be truly disappointing to see DC stop collections of this title like they have with so many other trade collections. Speaking of, this group of solicits doesn’t have volumes of either Ostrander’s Martian Manhunter nor Spectre titles, so that could be a bit concerning…).
  • Green Lantern: A Celebration of 75 Years
  • Immortal Doctor Fate – Apparently this one’s just a collection of a lot of various classic stories before the late 80’s ongoing series.
  • Justice League A League of One – Looking online all I find for this one is a graphic novel from Christopher Moeller, so this may just be a reprint of that.
  • Luthor
  • Metalzoic – A 1986 original graphic novel from Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neal.
  • New Teen Titans Vol. 3 – Another collection of the classic Wolfman/Perez era on the series.
  • Nightwing Vol. 3 – Another collection of Chuck Dixon’s Nightwing series.
  • Phantom Stranger – Collecting old Phantom Stranger from the Action Comics Weekly series.
  • Robin Vol. 1 Reborn – So it looks like now they’re collecting Tim Drake’s ongoing series, which is another awesome thing to happen.
  • Secret Six Vol. 3 – Collecting issues #14-24 of Gail Simone’s series, suggesting that there will be a fourth and final volume to collect 25-36
  • Showcase Presents Batman Vol. 6
  • Showcase Presents Blue Devil Vol. 1
  • Showcase Presents The Flash Vol. 5
  • Star Spangled War Stories Vol. 1 – I don’t believe this is a collection of the New 52 series, so this might be a first collection of the classic title of the same name.
  • Suicide Squad Vol. 1 Trial by Fire – DC is reprinting their first TPB collection of Ostrander’s Suicide Squad, hopefully suggesting that they’ll actually be releasing further collections of the series, as vol. 2 was solicited years ago and then cancelled. This is obviously coming out in time for the movie, but I’d say that the Suicide Squad has been granted increased popularity in the past few years thanks to their appearances is other media like the Arrow TV show. Hopefully they actually make it all the way through the 66 issue run.
  • Wild Dog Unleashed – Another collection of Action Comics Weekly material.

Alright, well that’s all of what we got this time around. There’s plenty that I’m pretty excited about in there, so sound of and let us know what you’re looking forward to from DC and Vertigo this fall!
