* Based on the novel by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden.
"With Baltimore, Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden lay siege to the reader's imagination with a grim battalion of gothic images and a thunderous barrage of narrative artillery." -Joe Hill

FALLING SKIES: THE BATTLE OF FITCHBURG #6
Anthony catches up with Pope's ragtag group, only to find a graveyard . . . of skitters. When cop and convict meet, it's a brawl, but interruptions and the ensuing fight clear the way. The "Berserkers" are born, and with their weapons cache there may be a new hope for the 2nd Mass-if they can make it back to Fitchburg.
From the creators of Mutant World!
A living castle seeks an heir who will protect its walls with an army of insect men. Will its owner be able to set the hive on fire in time, or will Castle Ragemoor's mad power endure?
* Strnad and Corben's blood-soaked series comes to a finale!
"Richard Corben, stands among us like an extraterrestrial peak. He has sat in his throne for a long time, above the moving and multi-coloured field of world comics, like an effigy of the leader, a strange monolith, a sublime visitor, a solitary enigma." -Moebius
Immersing himself in the Reset project, washed-up actor Guy Krause explores the original "open world" game of his own imagination! However, the corporate (possibly government) lab technicians who are running the Reset experiments need Guy to tone down on the fun and get back to dealing with his "life issues." Being a guinea pig for science has oddly boosted Guy's confidence-so much, in fact, that he boldly asks a lifelong secret crush out on a date!
* Reliving your past mistakes has never been funnier!
* From multiple Harvey and Eagle Award winner Peter Bagge!
* Time travel intrigue from the creator of Hate.
