BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA #8
CLIVE BARKERS NIGHTBREED #9
EVIL EMPIRE #10
MUNCHKIN #1
 WHY WE LOVE IT: As longtime fans of the game, we're jazzed to weave stories out of the world of Munchkin, whether it's from the perspective of one Munchkin, a gang of them, or even one of the monsters that live behind the doors!
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Kick open the door. Kill the monster. Steal the treasure. Screw over everybody you come in contact with. Welcome to the world of Munchkin, a gathering of stories based on the popular game series. It's a laugh a minute, pal. Plus, every first printing of every issue will ship with an exclusive card for the game.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Based on the immensely popular card game, Munchkin comes to comics! Munchkin takes place in a very flexible mashup of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, it has since then taken on nonfantasy and non-gaming elements. Characters in Munchkin change constantly but never permanently. What do Munchkins do? They play for the win. They are rules lawyers. They backstab. They gloat. They whine when someone else backstabs or gloats. Munchkins are emotional. Munchkins may be clever, but they are never wise. Munchkins have  short attention spans. Munchkins may be brave in the face of awful odds, but they are even braver when beating up crippled goblins for their lunch money. If a Munchkin seems to show mercy, it's because he was bored or distracted. After all, even stomping an ant helps you level up.

 After a sex-tape scandal, former Hollywood child star turned Z-lister Chondra Jackson returns to her hometown of Effigy Mound, IL, to find a seemingly impossible crime - a fresh corpse in an ancient Indian burial site. Even weirder, the murder resembles a scene from an episode of her old TV show, Star Cop, a live-action children's show about a kid detective.
As Chondra starts to investigate, she stumbles upon a bizarre cult that worships celebrities as eternal effigies. And these cult members aren't just worshiping - they're also ritually sacrificing anyone who defies their veneration of the beautiful and famous. Chondra's probe takes her on a terrifying tour of burial mounds across the world, from Stonehenge to the Nazca Lines of Peru. But what is the link between the cult, Chondra's hometown, and her own bloodline? Will Chondra become the hero detective she played as a child...or is she in fact the cult's unwitting messiah?
Written by rising star Tim Seeley (BATMAN ETERNAL, GRAYSON, Revival) and illustrated by Marley Zarcone (Black Circle, MADAME XANADU), EFFIGY is a twisted murder mystery and conspiracy tale that examines celebrity, godhood, and the price of fame.

WILL EISNER SPIRIT ARTIST ED HC VOL 02
 Will Eisner's work on The Spirit was in its way, as groundbreaking as Orson Welles' Citizen Kane. Both artistic achievements rewrote the book on sequential storytelling, and had lasting impacts on all that followed them. Last Year IDW Publishing released Volume One of Will Eisner's Spirit Artist's Edition to universal acclaim (including being nominated for, appropriately enough, an EISNER award). Volume two will contain stories from the same glorious post-war period of 1946 - 1950, along with some of the very best from Eisner's run. If you are a fan of the first book (or are kicking yourself for missing it), make sure you don't get caught short-it just doesn't get any better than this!
WRAPPED IN PLASTIC TWIN PEAKS SC
In 1990, avant garde filmmaker David Lynch and acclaimed television writer Mark Frost teamed up to create a television show that would redefine what the medium could achieve in a one-hour drama. With Twin Peaks, the duo entranced audiences with the seemingly idyllic town, its quirky characters, and a central mystery - who killed Laura Palmer? In a town like Twin Peaks, nothing is as it seems, and in Wrapped in Plastic, pop culture writer Andy Burns uncovers and explores the groundbreaking stylistic and storytelling methods that have made the series one of the most influential and enduring shows of the past 25 years.
