FOREVERS TP
(W) Curt Pires (A/CA) Eric Pfeiffer
Live fast. Live forever.
Five friends struggling on the brink of stardom sacrifice everything in a black magic pact that brings them all the wealth and glamour they ever wanted. Years later though, the "glow" is fading. But when one of them dies, and they feel a surge of magic rise amongst them, they soon realize that they all share in the power of the glow. And when a member of the group decides to kill the rest and claim the glow for their own, they suddenly find themselves fighting for their lives. As they search for the killer's identity, each of The Forevers must face the macabre reality of the lengths to which some people will go to be adored, and to make certain that the spotlight never fades

LOUD OGN TP (MR)
(W) Maria Llovet (A/CA) Maria Llovet
The LOUD nightclub. A latecomer stripper, a pissed waitress, a hitmen couple, a suspension bondage performer, a pregnant teenager, a clan of vampires, a pedophile, a lesbian junkie, a divorcing middle-aged woman, a sadistic dominatrix, and many other souls in search of love, drugs, and blood converge at the hottest club in town on a night that none will ever forget. If they survive.  
LOUD is like THE HUNGER if directed by Tarantino -- a stylish, tripped-out bloodbath of beautiful and vicious decadence.  
You'll feel the beat throbbing in your skull, smell the sweat, taste the blood, and lose yourself in the wicked underworld masterfully wrought by MARIA LLOVET (Faithless, There's Nothing There).  
LOUD is the kind of book that will get into your spine and give you flashbacks twenty years later, you'll turn to your friend and say "remember when comics had guts and creators made books like LOUD?"  
The smash hit that instantly sold out of its hardcover printing, now available for the first time in paperback.

XED TP VOL 01 (Re-Solicitation)
(W) Tony Patrick (A) Ayhan Hayrula, Brian Level, Christopher Peterson (CA) Chris Visions
A sci-fi thriller about a next-gen form of psychiatry: 'subliminal hitmen' injected into your mind who hunt down the demons that haunt you. Ex-military sharpshooter Colin McClure is Mezign Corp's most recent recruit for the still-experimental (and often deadly) job of subliminal hitman. McClure is the perfect candidate for two reasons: a) he's a killing machine, and b) he lost his legs in the war, so subliminal-ops are his only way to see any action. But he's also a dangerous candidate for one reason unknown to Mezign: Colin's true motive is to enter the mind of his catatonic daughter and bring her out of a coma. Collects issues 1-5.
