They are here. s. They hide among u They hunt us. They feed on us. They ARE us. V-Wars is set in a world transformed by a global pandemic caused by a millennia-old virus that, once triggered, affects individuals differently depending on their DNA. The result is vampires as unique as their cultures and a response from those unaffected humans like never seen before. “The vampires people used to believe in weren’t charming, romantic antiheroes. They were monsters. Each culture had their own legends, and each of these vampires was completely different from the others; and all of them were different from the vampires in pop culture. We went directly to the source: the myths and legends of vampires around the world and throughout history. Old-school, scary, and complicated.” —Jonathan Maberry WRITTEN BY

In the end, the enemies of the gods rose up and destroyed their ancient foes. The sun and the moon were consumed, and worlds were shattered. The enemies ruled the perpetual twilight, and fear was every man’s bedfellow. Hope was all but gone, and out of the shadows crept evils that had lain hidden for millennia. As the centuries passed, death and illimitable decay spread across the lands, and the enemies’ triumph was complete…

My Wife and my Children are dead. My Brothers and Sisters are dead. My Parents are dead. The Great Enemies still live. But I swear on the shattered bones of my kinsmen… …they will not live forever. I shall become… the storm.

Ragnarök… the Twilight of the Gods in Norse mythology… the destruction of the Nine Worlds. And now, three hundred years later, the birth of vengeance. Walter Simonson returns to comics in a BIG way with an all-new series… and doing what he does best! Simonson is one of the most acclaimed and respected creators in comics. He has done defining runs on Thor, Manhunter, Star Slammers, Elric, Orion, and more.

This Artist's Edition features the first five issues of Hellboy in Hell as well as a wealth of historic supplementary material: the first three Hellboy stories—the two initial four-pagers, produced for promotional purposes, and the 10-page story from John Byrne's Next Men #21— plus The Corpse, and two other tales selected by Mignola for inclusion. Nearly every page of Mike Mignola's Hellboy Artist's edition is shot from the original art and showcases Mignola's gorgeous work as closely as possible to the physical page—this is a book for fans of great storytelling and students of the craft.

WHAT IS AN ARTIST’S EDITION? While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

LIKE AN ARTIST’S EDITION, AN ARTIFACT EDITION PRESENTS PAGES SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART. While the Artist’s Edition line produces only complete stories, Artifact Editions allow IDW to present books even if all of the original art cannot be obtained, and will include extras such as advertisements, portfolio pieces, color guides, and more.

In the mid-1960s, Jim Steranko burst into the Marvel Age of comics in a BIG way, and the innovative, cinematic techniques he introduced in his brief tenure at The House of Ideas stand to this day as a high-water mark in the history of graphic storytelling. More than any other series, Steranko is most associated with Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. This Artist's Edition collects the first 12 stories of Steranko's run, from Strange Tales #151 — #162, as well as all his covers from these issues. Additionally, there will be a select number of extras presented. And, as usual, the pages have been scanned from the original art, from Steranko's private archives. WRITTEN AND DRAWN BY
