(W) Marco B. Bucci (A / CA) Riccardo Atzeni
It is the morning of January 10, 2016, and thirty-year-old Samuel is ready to leave the house and live another day of his ordinary existence. As soon as he arrives on the street, he learns about David Bowie's death. The news strikes him so hard that he is stunned, and his are not moments of bewilderment, but hours, days, years, and centuries…he finds himself catapulted across space and time.
He awakens hundreds of thousands of years later, in a society of the future-in the year 200016-not so different from his own, although he is surrounded by people dressed as dinosaurs, integrated biological technologies, and there is a global well-being. Is it perhaps the utopia of the future? Samuel will have to try to find out and find his own dimension in the process, without losing himself.
Red Lightning is a touching tribute to David Bowie. Six years after Bowie's death, Marco B. Bucci redefines science fiction with a graphic novel masterfully illustrated by the talented Riccardo Atzeni. Long live the White Duke!

Bêlit and Valeria take their crew across Hyperborea to stop the wizards and magicians that are threatening the realm in an attempt to contact the god responsible for Bêlit's reemergence, but the quest takes a detour when she feels the need to prove herself.

Fall into a world of fairytales that tests all the theories of magic…in JP Roth and Sabine Rich's Theory of Magic.
On the day the god Cronus was born, it is said, the earth quaked and screamed at its core. The cliffs bordering the sea crashed together, flames shot into the open sky. Each flame carried a Seelie fairy. In their blood flowed the magic of the old worlds and the fire of immorality. The Unseelie were formed in the ashes that fell to the ground, they carried no flame and could die. The ruling gods struck an accord with the Unseelie who protested their fate: Every hundred years, a Seelie fairy must be human for three days, in that time, the Unseelie could hunt their immortal flame, and gods would close their eyes,
A princess of firelight and next in line for the Seelie throne, Selyara is a girl who wants only freedom. Given no protection, she must face three days as a human, alone. Lavara sits on the Seelie throne as queen regent until Selyara has completed and survived her human trial. If Selyara dies, Lavara will take the throne.
JP Roth & Sabine Rich's Theory of Magic graphic novel holds seven chapters of full color story and art, drawn and colored by Sabine Rich, and includes a cover gallery as well as sketch and layout bonus pages, and a new cover by J Scott Campbell!
