This issue will shock you and haunt your every moment as Cindy’s rag-tag group of survivors are put through the worst kind of torture you can imagine. Nothing is going right, but this is no fairy tale — there are no magic cures on the horizon. When civilization crumbles in one terrifying moment; when people are gleefully breaking into unthinkable acts of violence all around you; when everyone you love has died screaming in agony: What do you do? There is no help. There is no hope. There is no escape. There are only the Crossed. This stomach-churning vision is brought to vivid (and more than a little disturbing) life by his partner in crime Jacen Burrows. This suffocating seventh issue is available with a Regular or Wraparound cover by Burrows as well as a rare Red Crossed Edition by Burrows.

Writer: Warren Ellis
Art: Paul Duffield
Readership: MR
Format: Full Color, 144 pages, TPB

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Volume Two of award-winning author Warren Ellis’ ongoing web comic, FREAKANGELS, is here! This installment collects the entire second arc of the post-apocalyptic saga into 144 gorgeous, full-color pages. Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years later, the world ended. Today, eleven strange 23-year-olds are living in and defending Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. They’ve made a new friend, and together they successfully defended their home from raiders–but the post-apocalyptic drowned London that the eleven Freakangels survive in is never a safe place, and never surrounded by friends. Night has only just fallen, but strangers already creep through Whitechapel with the worst of intentions and theweapons to see them through. In FREAKANGELS: VOLUME TWO, we discover just how bad the situation in sunken England has gotten, and we meet the last of the eleven strange Freakangels. But the twelfth, sinister Mark, is still out there somewhere… Ellis’ ongoing story of a flooded London is beautifully illustrated in jaw-dropping detail by Paul Duffield, and every page is as much a work of art as it is a compelling and multi-layered story. This second collection is also available as a Hardcover edition with an all-new cover by series artist Paul Duffield that is limited to just 2000 copies, and a DualSigned Hardcover edition, limited to only 1000 copies, signed by both Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield!

Format: Full Color, 32 pages, 2 of 5

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Where did the space heroes go to die? A major new series by Warren Ellis, the writer who reinvented science fiction in comics, in the alternate-world style of the award-winning MINISTRY OF SPACE and AETHERIC MECHANICS — a retro-punk “future of the past” where spaceships still belched smoke and arguments were still settled with laser pistols. Grounded space pilot Mary Raven has come to the interzone settlement in the middle of Ignition City, Earth’s last spaceport, to recover the effects of her dead father — people think. Mary really wants to know how he died, and who did it. And if she finds that out, she’s going to spoil the rackets of a great many people, and maybe uncover a deadly secret that’s worth ray-gunning her down to protect… Ignition City is an on-going color epic told in five issue series featuring the art of Aetheric Mechanics’ Gianluca Pagliarani and launching with a Regular and Wraparound cover by Pagliarani, a painted cover by Felipe Massafera and a rare Design Sketch cover by Pagliarani!
