Wild’s End #1: What’s to Love: The first Wild’s End miniseries kept us in constant suspense with its unlikely mash-up of War of the Worlds and The Wind in the Willows. We’re holding our collective breaths once again as author Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and illustrator I.N.J. Culbard (The King in Yellow) are set to play with the paranoia and “enemy amongst us” conspiracy theories prevalent in stories we love like Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The X-Files. What It Is: As Clive, Susan, Fawkes, and the other survivors of the alien invasion of Lower Crowchurch try to cope with what just happened to their small town, the military arrives in an attempt to cover up the “incident.” Town residents are immediately detained, questioned, and treated with suspicion. Are they alien spies, collaborators, sympathizers? Clive and the rest will need to escape imprisonment if they’re to get the word out and warn the rest of the world in case the aliens return.

Mad Max Fury Road TP: In a fallen world ravaged by oil and water wars, humanity exists without law or mercy.  All those who wander the Wasteland are ruled by a single imperative… survival!
Among them is Max Rockatansky, a Road Warrior haunted by his turbulent past…
“As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken.
It was hard to know who was more crazy…Me…or everyone else?!”
The four stunning tales are collected in a single volume from the mind of George Miller, the creator of the Mad Max trilogy.
In these preludes to the film, witness the rise of a war hero turned tyrannical warlord known as the Immortan Joe, along with the story of one of his “War Boys,” the indomitable Nux. Plus, follow the journey of Furiosa, Immortan Joe’s most feared Imperator, and witness the cycle of violence and tragedy as the Road Warrior Max Rockatansky fights to rebuild his Interceptor – the vehicle that ensures his freedom!
Finally, exclusively available in print for the first time, the tale of the mighty War Rig and the lives it claimed throughout its wild road battles!
