Immortal Brothers: The Tale of the Green Knight #1

Archer and Armstrong! The Eternal Warrior! Ivar, Timewalker! (And a very brief appearance by Faith!)
In the great Armstrong tradition of telling history as it really happened, join the immortal Anni-Padda brothers for a journey to King Arthur’s court, where the true history of the monstrous GREEN KNIGHT is revealed!
It’s winter at King Arthur’s court in Camelot, when the monstrous GREEN KNIGHT appears at the Round Table wearing no armor and bearing a gigantic axe. Eager for a challenge suitable for the weaker knights, he insists that they participate in a friendly “winter’s game”. Anyone can strike him once with his axe, but on the condition that the Green Knight may return the exact blow in one year’s time...

Lawless: Welcome to Badrock TPB

The backwater planet of 43 Rega has spent five years recovering from an invasion of aliens known as the Zhind. isolated and a hotbed for trouble makers, Badrock is an colony township desperate for a strong law enforcer to take charge. Enter Colonial. Marshal Meta Lawson. Tough, surly and determined, Lawson seems to be ideal for the role. But is this law-woman exactly who she claims to be…?

God, I loved this comic.

Lawless, set in the Judge Dredd universe, is drawn entirely in the stark black and whites of classic 2000AD titles, a look that could go head-to-head with any color comic and come out looking a million times better. The writing is absolutely top-notch, managing to maintain a straight face without sacrificing its goofy sense of humor. Marshal Lawless is a true badass...

Sky Doll: Sudra #1+2

In a parallel universe, the existence of a sweet, life-like android called Noa, a Sky Doll, has been turned upside down. After fleeing her tyrannical creator and fleeing to the far reaches of the galaxy to the planet Sudra, Noa cannot seem to escape her past! While she uses her mysterious healing powers to thrill the Sudra public, she is plagued by visions of the dead papesse Agape! Could this planet be even more revealing that its paradisiacal façade?

Sky Doll: Sudra is both gorgeous and bonkers in the very best way.

The art is unbelievable. I can’t imagine how many hours of digital painting went into each panel. The characters, which appear to be vaguely cat-like things, blend Disney cartoons with a dash of Manga and suffuse it with indefinable Frenchness...

Rose #1

A classic fantasy tale about a girl trying to restore balance to a broken world. Rose must connect with her Khat—Thorne—to become the Guardian the world needs. But things aren’t easy for Rose and Thorne, the powerful sorcerous Drucilla has many powerful and demonic allies—all of them focused on stopping one scared little girl who’s desperately trying to stay alive and do what’s right. Written by MEREDITH FINCH (Wonder Woman, Little Mermaid), and drawn by fan-favorite artist IG GUARA (Batman: Arkham Knight, Blue Beetle, The Ravagers).

So let’s get this out of the way: Rose apparently has nothing to do with Jeff Smith’s Bone. This was my first assumption, seeing as the names “Rose” and “Thorn” are pretty unequivocally linked to Mr. Smith’s series. There is a Bone p...

The Complete Skizz

The ultimate illegal alien! Alan Moore’s out of print classic returns in a brand new complete collection!

When Interpreter Zhcchz of the Tau-Ceti Imperium crashed his ship into the small blue ‘Hellworld’-classed planet, the odds of surviving were stacked against him. Stranded in the polluted, hostile British city of Birmingham, ‘Skizz’ is befriended by Roxy, a plucky young local girl. But danger is ever present – from bad food to Prime Minister Thatcher’s hostile government alien-hunters, this E.T. may soon be R.I.P!

Classic 2000AD has such a distinctive look and feel, you can immediately pick their comics out of a lineup: the neo-pulp art; the giddy schoolboy nature of the stories; the indefinable “Britishness” inflected with a hairy furze of punk anarchy. Skizz embodies all ...
