In ‘Hell Is Waiting,’ Sinful Suzi learns a lesson about the wages of sin. And in ‘Burning Roses,’ Obsidian Stone loses an old friend and welcomes a new demon.

This guilty pleasure is a long-overdue return to the B&W short stories that LINSNER started with in CRY FOR DAWN. Because if you are going to sin, then sin boldly!

Staff Picks: Best of Previews Luglio 2013

Staff Picks: Best of Previews Luglio 2013

Come ogni mese, immergiamoci nel variegato mondo delle uscite USA per decidere le nostre letture. Si tratta delle novità’ previste per Settembre. ecco cosa ci offre il catalogo della Diamond… il “Previews”

Iniziamo dalla Dark Horse, che adatta a fumetti la storia mai diventata film di George Lucas…un approccio diverso al mondo di SW fatta dal suo stesso autore. Miniserie di 8 numeri.

proseguiamo con i Beatles, e le gesta di B. Epstein, primo ed indimenticato manager dei Fab Four, questa e’ la sua storia.

Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story

The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story

The Fifth Beatle is the untold true story of Brian Epstein, the visionary manager who discovered and guided The Beatles-from their gigs in a tiny cellar in Liverpool to unprecedented international stardom. Yet more than merely the story of “The Man Who Made The Beatles,” The Fifth Beatle is an uplifting, tragic, and ultimately inspirational human story about the struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Brian himself died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, having helped The Beatles prove through “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” that pop music could be an inspirational art form. He was homosexual when it was a felony to be so in the United Kingdom, Jewish at a time of anti-Semitism, and from Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town.

…continuano le avventure di Ninjette, narrate da Adam Warren, il “Mangaka” piu’ famoso negli USA.

Empowered Special #5: Nine Beers with Ninjette

Empowered Special #5: Nine Beers with Ninjette

Kick back and have a cold one with hearty-partying Ninjette, Empowered’s Best Friend Forever, as she weaves a boozy yet poignant tale of ninja magic, complete with fighting, flirting, and swing-dancing with the Maidman-not to mention the outwitting of ‘Jette’s monstrous thug of a father. Drink up!

* Story (and bonus art) by Adam Warren, spectacularly illustrated by manga creator Takeshi Miyazawa (Lost Planet Bound Raven, Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane)

* Over 100,000 Empowered graphic novels in print.
