At the end of the 20th century, superheroes, geniuses, madmen, and activists rush towards WWIII!


A Soviet 'iron' hero, a superpowered American president, an insane cyborg soldier, an Afghan woman hellbent on building a better life for her people-these strange yet familiar beings collide in a story that mixes history, politics, and comic book mythology into something totally new.


Welcome to 20TH CENTURY MEN, where the edges of our reality and fiction touch, overlap…and then explode.



It's the moment we've all been waiting for - the start of an all-new arc of BARBARIC!


Follow Owen and his magical companion, the tender, talking Axe as they spread kindness and hope in a world gone bad...


...just kidding!

As always... it's just f***ing barbaric.



Intergalactic mercenaries Rex 'Crash' Ballard and Troy 3.0 find themselves in hot water after a prison break on Wexia-1 sets free the dictator of Wexia-2.

No sweat for two pros like Crash & Troy!




Life is nothing if not a series of endings.


School.


Jobs.


Friendships.


Love.


Until THE end.


Walter Willem's end was fast and unexpected. His was an unremarkable life. So, how is it that his story continues as cannon fodder in an endless war waged against an insatiable darkness hellbent on consuming all of existence?


And is Walter right in believing he's arrived in the midst of this titanic battle as the one destined to finally end it? That's the tale of the End After End.



Sanity-eating monsters ended humanity. The unlucky few who survived now hide in the cracks of a broken world.


And yet somehow, beneath the graveyard that used to be San Antonio, Rico met Lupe, the girl of his dreams.


But how did she get here?


And why is she smiling?


No one survives out in the street.


No one smiles where the monsters lurk.



A new generation of Bastards is back and bolder than ever!


A special 3-issue oversized prestige format mini-series from Jimmy's creators GARTH ENNIS and RUSS BRAUN!

The formerly sexist superspy is even reevaluating his attitude to women! His daughter (Don't say it! Don't you dare say it!) Nancy is taking up the slack in fine style, cutting a bloody swathe through the Regent rogues' gallery.


But a mysterious message starts Jimmy looking into his family's murky past…where he finds a clue to a strange and deadly new danger. JIMMY'S LITTLE BASTARDS #1, by Garth Ennis and Russ Braun. Written by Garth Ennis (A WALK THROUGH HELL, The Boys, Preacher) and illustrated by Russ Braun (Batman, Swamp Thing, Where Monsters Dwell), JIMMY'S LITTLE BASTARDS returns to a familiar world with a new spin.
