An Unkillable Emperor And An Unharmable Dan – Avatar In May
The latest edition of Previews is just around the bend, and we're giving you a head start at looking at the March 2012 solicitation artwork for Avatar Press (corresponding to items shipping in May).
Caligula Volume 1 Signed Hardcover Edition (Cover by Jacen Burrows)
Caligula cannot be killed, as demonstrated on this cover. In the story, a peasant must join the emperor's court… and witness all its gut-wrenching horrors, just to wait for the opportunity to discover the secret behind the invincibility.
Dan the Unharmable #1 Wraparound Edition (Cover by Rafael Ortiz)
Dan's not afraid of anything. You can beat him with sticks, stick him in the oven, or throw him off a bridge. But he's responsible for people who are anything but unharmable, and this private detective is about to embark on his most personal case.
Crossed: Badlands #5 Torture Edition (Cover by Jacen Burrows)
Let's keep moving forward with the Crossed motif.
Crossed: Badlands #5 Wraparound Edition (Cover by Jacen Burrows)
If you're a fan of the post-apocalyptic zombie scenario, you really should be reading Crossed. It's got a similar feel, as you can see below, but it's so far beyond mere wandering hordes. It's killers, killers everywhere.
Stitched #5 Gore Edition (Cover by Mike Wolfer)
For some reason, I'm reminded of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer and Newman make the sausage. Great, now I'm hungry, too.
Dicks #4 Regular Edition (Cover by John McCrea)
The first story arc of Ennis and McCrea's Dicks ends with a classic "Everybody vs. Everybody" scenario. Guns a'blazin'!
Dicks #4 Offensive Edition (Cover by John McCrea)
So offensive, we can't even show you. This is for your protection. For your enjoyment, however, buy the book.
Ferals #5 Gore Edition (Cover by Gabriel Andrade)
Ferals is pure, unadulterated horror.
