STARKWEATHER: IMMORTAL
Cover art by Patrick McEvoy.
• Today, witches are hunted at every turn. The Twelve Great Houses have collapsed under
betrayal and infighting; they have abandoned their charges, forsaking the very source of
their gifts. They teeter on the brink of extinction and their best chance at survival — a
five-year-old boy with enough power to topple mountains — disappeared 15 years ago. That
boy has become a man who doesn't remember what he was. The very spell that was woven
to hide him from the world also has hidden his true self, leaving him a directionless
disappointment who wants nothing more than to spend his life in wonderful obscurity. It is
Alexander Starkweather's destiny to restore the Divine Blood to power and lead them into a
new age. But before he can become a witch, he must learn what it means to be a man.
• Collects and completes the Starkweather: Immortal series.

• Guy Salvatore can't get a break. After his girlfriend Sith died, he can't seem to go through a
morning without monsters coming out of the bathroom mirror, or being pressed at school
with his friends' concern over his well-being. All Guy wants is to be left alone. One night
after a bad dream, Guy seeks solace in the graveyard by Sith's tombstone, and is confronted
by an odd bunch of characters that will change his life forever with the promise that Sith
might be alive! Meanwhile, a beautiful Goddess known as Good God has lost the key to
heaven. She needs the help of her fellow compatriot, Evil God, to search for it down on
Earth. But what starts off as a minor chore becomes more when Guy catches them in the
graveyard, especially since Gods are supposed to be invisible to mortals...

BRODY’S GHOST BOOK 1
Brody hoped it was just a hallucination. But no, the teenaged ghostly girl who'd come face to face
with him in the middle of a busy city street was all too real. And now she was back, telling him

the spirit of a centuries-old samurai to unlock his hidden supernatural powers. Thirteen-time
Eisner nominee Mark Crilley joins Dark Horse to launch his most original and action-packed saga

CONAN THE CIMMERIAN: THE SPEAR AND
OTHER STORIES
Collecting all of the Conan and Conan the Cimmerian comic-book collaborations between
acclaimed storyteller Timothy Truman (Scout, Grimjack, Jonah Hex) and veteran artist Paul Lee
(Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spider-Man), Conan: The Spear and Other Stories is a tribute to
Robert E. Howard's tenacious King Conan.
Beleaguered by attempts at his crown and sickened by political maneuverings, Conan is the sort of
king who takes matters into his own bloody hands. Truman and Lee's "They Shall Be Lords
Again" and "Silent to the Sea" — fromConan issues #35 and #36 — work together as a sequel to
"The Phoenix on the Sword," a beloved Howard story. "The Tale of the Head," from Conan #40,
immediately follows Howard's "The Scarlet Citadel" and pits Conan head-on against the powers
of evil wizard Thoth-Amon. In "The Sorrows of Akivasha," Lee fully paints and Truman fleshes
out the sad plight of a seductive, centuries-old vampire from Robert E. Howard's only Conan
novel, The Hour of the Dragon. This collection also includes the Truman/Lee Conan short from
the Free Comic Book Day 2006 Special, a Paul Lee sketchbook section, and colors on most stories
by Eisner Award-winner Dave Stewart. Brutal battles on Pictish soil, scheming sorcerers, false
prophets, a lust-filled vampire, and a little bit of humor — this is an excellent introduction to Dark
Horse's Conan universe for both entirely new fans and well-read, seasoned fans!
KEY SELLING POINTS:
• "(Truman) goes back to the same historical and mythical source material Howard must have
used and mines it to expand on what Howard already did. Now that's the way to put your stamp
on a Howard tale. As a result, this reeks of Robert E. Howard influence. There is blood and there
is fire . . . there is death and despair and indomitable will. Basically, everything you could want
from a Conan story." —ComicsBulletin

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MARTHA
WASHINGTON IN THE TWENTY-FIRST
CENTURY
Just in time for the Fourth of July! A masterpiece nearly twenty years in the making, this archival
volume contains the complete life story of Martha Washington, the twenty-first century freedom
fighter created by comic-book megastars Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) and Dave Gibbons
(Watchmen), now in a more affordable softcover edition.
Our story begins in the squalid corridors of a maximum-security housing project, where a young
girl will rise from the war-torn streets of Chicago to battle injustice in a world insane with
corruption. Her fight will take her far, from the frontlines of the second American Civil War, to
the cold, unforgiving reaches of space. She will be called a hero, a traitor, and nearly everything
in-between, but all along the way, her courage, her integrity, and her unwavering commitment to
that most valuable of rights — liberty — will inspire a movement that will never surrender.
KEY SELLING POINTS:
• Collecting meticulously remastered versions of every Martha Washington story and featuring the
same extensive, behind-the-scenes section by Dave Gibbons and introduction by Frank Miller as
the hardcover edition, this is the ultimate way to experience this modern comics epic crafted by
two of the medium's greatest living masters.

THUN’DA, KING OF THE CONGO ARCHIVE
Frank Frazetta is widely renowned as one of the greatest fantasy illustrators of all time. But he
didn't hone his skills in study at the fabled galleries of Paris or Milan; his legendary talents
flourished as he worked for hire during the Golden Age of comics!
In the early 1950s, Frazetta set up shop at bustling comics publisher Magazine Enterprises,
contributing beautiful cover illustrations and comics pages. There, he also created his first mighty
adventurer: the lost-world-jungle hero Thun'da! Though Frazetta left Magazine Enterprises shortly
after the first issue of Thun'da was released, and the series was ultimately short-lived despite the
talented care of collaborators Gardner Fox and Bob Powell, to this day the Thun'da, King of the
Congo comics series is held in high regard both as an exciting adventure title and as the only
comics series ever to include a cover-to-cover, all-Frazetta issue.
KEY SELLING POINTS:
• Collecting all six issues of Thun'da, King of the Congo, as well as the Thun'da backup stories
that appeared in Cave Girl and Africa: Thrilling Land of Mystery, this volume is a definitive
archive sure to please any reader who appreciates classic adventure comics and the work of
Golden-Age greats Gardner Fox, Bob Powell, and Frank Frazetta.

• Yoko is a high school heartthrob with a reputation for amazing techniques in the bedroom —
at least that's what his fellow students gossip about him. One day, when Yoko arrives at
school covered in bandages, his classmate Yukio vows to protect him. Little does he know
the forbidden practices that are in store for him. Meanwhile, driving student Ishimoto finds a
curious commonality with his Driver's Ed. Instructor — an old action-hero television series
beloved in their childhood. But, their innocent bonding just might lead them into far more
adult experiences. In another tale of forbidden infatuation, Fumi finds himself fascinated by
the handsome young man his own brother has become while studying abroad... perhaps even
a little too fascinated. Finally, high school thug Kanda secretly falls in love with a fellow
gang banger, but soon they realize that their own bad habits can destroy the future of their
love.

THE PLAYWRIGHT
• The Playwright rather enjoys a quiet moment in the local park. It is a good place to mentally
sort his ideas, and is often frequented by pretty young ladies. He once saw a pigeon defecate
onto a businessman's shoulder. It struck him as absurd that such an event is often considered
lucky. Surely the luck lay with passers-by who, statistically, were far less likely to be
similarly soiled, at that precise moment. Similarly, the Playwright always derived an almost
perverse sense of relief whenever he received news that an old friend had developed prostate
cancer. Because statistically, he reasoned, such news significantly reduced the chances of
him being similarly afflicted. And to be honest, at his age, his prostate needed all the
statistical support he could muster.”
• The Playwright: a dark, romantic comedy about the sex life of a celibate, middle-aged man.

• Kate and Michael are roommates living in the Oakland hills, working at the same Trader
Joes supermarket. A night of drunken revelry changes their lives forever, but not in the way
that anyone would expect. A slow-spreading plague of zombie-ism breaks out at their house
party, spreading amongst their circle of friends, and simultaneously through the Bay Area.
This zombie plague — an STD of sorts — is spread through sex and kissing, turning its
victims into mindless, horny, voracious killers. Thrust into extremes by this slow- motion
tragedy, Kate and Michael are forced to confront the choices they've made in their lives, and
their fears of commitment, while trying to stay alive and reunite in the one place in the Bay
Area that's likely to be safe and secure from the zombie hoards: Alcatraz.
• See how it all began! In Before They Were Giants, editor James L. Sutter collects the first
published stories of 15 of science fiction and fantasy's most important authors, including
winners of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, New York Times bestsellers, and
members of the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Along with these often rare or
never-before-anthologized stories, all 15 authors provide brand-new retrospective critiques
and interviews discussing the stories' geneses, how publication affected their lives, and what
they know now about writing that they wish they'd known then.
• Contributors include Ben Bova, Charles Stross, China Miéville, Cory Doctorow, David
Brin, Greg Bear, Joe Haldeman, Kim Stanley Robinson, Larry Niven, Michael Swanwick,
Nicola Griffith, Piers Anthony, R. A. Salvatore, Spider Robinson, and William Gibson.

• Brother fights brother, and the universe hangs in the balance! Long before the grim darkness
of the 41st millennium was a time of myth and legend, where god-like beings met in a
monumental battle of brother against brother. Let us return to the Imperium of the 31st
Millennium when a golden age was shattered by betrayal, and exploded into the greatest
battle of all time!
• Welcome to the Horus Heresy, an epic board game for two players set in the dark future of
Games Workshop's preeminent Warhammer 40,000 universe. One player will take the role
of the godlike Emperor of Holy Terra and valiantly stand as the last beacon of hope for the
future of all mankind. The other player will lead the attack as the Warmaster Horus, once the
most trusted and loved scion of the Emperor, now turned entirely away from sanity and
hope, twisted beyond recognition by the insidious taint of Chaos. Both players will
command their vast legions in pitched battle across the now war-torn surface of Terra,
birthplace of the human race. Can Horus succeed in this profane quest to crush the
Imperium, drowning the galaxy in a flood of Chaos and destruction, or will the steadfast
Holy Emperor of Mankind break the bloody siege, turning the tide of assault against the
cruel machinations of the Dark Powers of the Warp?

• The desert is treacherous, mysterious, and without mercy. But for those willing to risk the
dangers of the shifting, sun-baked sands, the desert holds riches beyond compare. Like a
draught of cold water to a parched and weary traveler, after remaining unavailable for many
years, this classic and celebrated area-control game returns to print! In Through the Desert,
two to five players control tribes of nomads vying for vital resources scattered across the
sandy wastes. By establishing caravans and traveling to oases and sources of water, players
will balance numerous strategies in their quest to lead their tribe to victory.
• Through the Desert, from award-winning game designer Reiner Knizia, has long been hailed
as both a game of surprisingly deep strategy, and as a perfect gateway game. This reprint
includes everything found in earlier editions, including the famous pastel plastic camels.
• Death. Misery. Peril. Suffering. Disaster. And that's just the weather! A complete campaign
for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, The Gathering Storm centers around a series of bizarre
events that bring the heroes face-to-face with dangerous enemies, moral dilemmas, and the
raw fury of nature. In addition to providing many sessions of exciting adventure, the
campaign guide provides detailed information on the town of Stromdorf and a number of its
odd citizens.

WARHAMMER FANTASY ROLEPLAY: THE
GATHERING STORM
WARHAMMER INVASION CARD GAME:
ASSAULT ON ULTHUAN EXPANSION
• The Dark Elves are a cruel race who excel at taking prisoners, sacrificing them, and
inflicting vast amounts of pain on enemy units through hit point reduction. The High Elves
are a proud, powerful race who rely on card denial, cancellation, healing, and ranged
attacks. Both will raise mighty kingdoms and venture out on perilous quests. Can either
faction rise to dominance over the other, or will they both succumb to another foe
altogether? Exploring the bitter enmity between the Dark Elves and the High Elves, the
Assault on Ulthuan expansion contains two core starter decks of forty cards, as well as two
capital boards for the Dark Elves and High Elves. Players of the existing factions will find
plenty to aid them as well; new cards for the other four factions, plus a handful of neutrals,
bring a host of new strategies, tactics, and deck-building options for each of the six races in
the game.
