Welcome to the last New Comic Books Day of 2010! Here is what we couldn’t wait get our little ninja hands on this final week of the year!
Hellboy: The Sleeping and The Dead #1 of 2
From Darkhorse Comics, while chasing a giant bat through the forest, Hellboy meets an old man with insider knowledge of the coming vampire apocalypse. For the first time, Mike Mignola teams up with artist Scott Hampton (Batman, The Books of Magic) for this gothic tale.
From Top Cow Productions, the First Shocking Suspense Series from Minotaur! Brian Cohn is a diagnosed schizophrenic leading a simple, uncomplicated life in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. He’s expecting his first child with his wife. When he goes to visit his estranged Alzheimer’s afflicted father on his deathbed, the dying old man confesses to being a serial killer. Now Brian is faced with discovering a horrifying new side to his father and left wondering if we ever really escape familial legacies.
From acclaimed author Joshua Hale Fialkov (Tumor, Pilot Season: Alibi) and rising artist Rahsan Ekedal (Creepy) a disturbing story of murder and mystery wrapped in questions of sanity.
Jack of Fables #49
From DC imprint, Vertigo and writers Matthew Sturges and Bill Willingham, it’s the issue before issue #50, where everything changes in the JACK OF FABLES universe forever! This issue is like the appetizer before a feast of destruction! Like an amuse bouche for a dragon’s bloodthirsty maw! We just want to warn you up front that more than one person probably dies in this issue, and it’s probably someone you like. As the Page Sisters, the Fables on the bus, Jack Frost, and a very angry guy with a sword through him all converge in a mythical land far away from mortal ken, a certain dragon begins to get nervous. That is to say he would get nervous, if he was that kind of guy. But he isn’t, and so he doesn’t. And that’s probably bad for everyone involved. . .
