HE LIVES TO KILL THE DEAD. Written by Matt Wagner, award-winning creator of Grendel and Mage, and co-created with Thomas Tull, executive producer of 300 and The Dark Knight, this hardcover edition collects The Tower Chronicles: GeistHawk, Volumes 1-4, an epic which tells the first compelling tale of John Tower, a supernatural bounty hunter who tracks and destroys the uncanny evils that haunt our world. His harrowing missions lead him across the globe and into the darkest recesses of mankind’s most dangerous places to banish a wide variety of poltergeists, demons, and other unfathomable evils to free his troubled patrons from their tormentors’ ethereal grasp. Stalked by sultry sirens who want to devour his very life, hunted a by rival mercenary organization, and set-up by sinister corporations, Tower faces more threats than ever before. Meanwhile, his unofficial “partner,” FBI agent Alicia Hardwicke, begins to uncover pieces of Tower’s shadowy past, bringing up the question: What secrets can a man who hunts monsters possibly have that are even more chilling than his prey? Will our hero reach his mysterious goals…or will Tower die trying? Illustrated by acclaimed 2000 AD and Lobo artist Simon Bisley.

Penciled by JAE LEE
Cover by JAE LEE
The Inhumans are one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities.

But now Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by the mute Black Bolt, repel the foreign invaders who assail their outer defenses, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt’s insane brother, Maximus the Mad? Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee infuse one of Marvel’s oldest families with a modern sensibility – including international politics, class dissension and the age-old struggle of growing up. Dark and grimly compelling, it remains one of Marvel Knights’ most beloved stories. Collecting INHUMANS (1998) #1-12.

Cover by LAURENCE CAMPBELL
When last we saw the gunslinger Roland, he was following the Man in Black’s path to find the Dark Tower and set Mid-World right. Along the trail, Roland came to Tull, a sleepy little town in the middle of the desert where the Man in Black’s sinister power had taken hold. Barely escaping with his life and leaving a pile of bodies in his wake, Roland arrived at the Way Station, where he meets Jake Chambers. Who is this sophisticated boy, and what is his connection to the world outside Mid-World? And is the Man in Black’s flight across the desert just an illusion? Prepare for a tale of fantasy, horror, revenge and betrayal – a tale that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Stephen King.
