JULY - DECEMBER 2011 CATALOG Welcome to the DBD New Releases 2011 Catalog! 2010 was an amazing year for graphic novels in terms of both quality and sales, and with 2011 in full swing, we’re looking to continue the trend! DBD proudly represents over 50 comic book, graphic novel, and pop culture publishers, and in this catalog you’ll find the items being released in the second half of this year. Dark Horse brings the real-life story behind the investigation and apprehension of one of the country’s worst serial killers with Green River Killer: A True Detective Story, while making manga fans happy with Gate 7, a brand-new series from CLAMP. Plus, the all-ages action continues with new volumes in the Star Wars Adventures and Star Wars: Clone Wars series. With the new Transformers sequel hitting theaters this summer, interest in the shape-shifting robots will be high, and IDW helps fill that need with the Transformers: Dark of the Moon prequels and adaptation. They also expand their range – and readers’ knowledge – with the Book of Extreme Facts, featuring lessons not found in most textbooks. Image’s award-winning Walking Dead returns, along with the superheroism of Invincible, while 27: First Set investigates the mystery of why so many good musicians don’t see age 28. Dynamite revives another classic pulp character for the modern age with their Warlord of Mars, while bringing more of Charlaine Harris’ macabre tales to comics with the second volume of the Grave Sight series. The Wimpy Kid phenomenon takes a turn for the undead with Antarctic Press’ Diary of a Zombie Kid, while Zenescope’s imprint Silver Dragon continues its line of Discovery Channel graphic novels with Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Predators. This is proving to be a great time to be a fan of graphic novels, and these releases will help you not only satisfy your current customers, but help entice new ones as well. All my best,

AMNESIA

• One of the most feared terror attack scenarios involves the det-

onation of a weapon that generates a powerful electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that immediately renders power circuits, computers, even automobiles useless. But what if a weapon was discharged that, in addition to all the above, also erased people’s memories? Would mankind, given a fresh start, continue on its path to self-destruction? Or would it, free of its preconceptions, usher in a new age of peace? Amnesia explores what might happen if someone were to push the restart button on the human race.

KAGAGI: THE RAVEN

• Matthew Carver is an average 16-year-old kid dealing with normal teenage stuff: high school drama, teenage angst, and a huge crush. Or, at least, he was yesterday. Today he found out that he has inherited an ancient power and responsibility — the age-old evil known as the Windigo has returned, and Matthew Carver must defeat it! He is Kagagi: The Raven!

JUL-DEC 2011


• Vampires, Aliens, Ghosts and Zombies… BEWARE! There’s a

He may be the youngest, and possibly the world’s greatest paranormal private eye. Ralph hunts down and challenges all things strange and bizarre on a daily basis. He unwittingly solves “out of this world” mysteries (literally). But he’s still the shortest kid in the 8th grade, still gets picked on by bullies, and still has to be in bed by 9 PM. More often than not, Ralph’s serious obsession for paranormal phenomena gets him into heaps of trouble. With his best friends and partners in slime, Booker and Tav, his trusty robotic supercomputer Z, and his ghostly canine companion Specter, Ralph protects the people of Earth from extraterrestrial and supernatural threats.

is hot on the trail of a gruesome serial killer with a peculiar trademark, only to find himself on the run when every lead points to the one person he never would have suspected —himself! Forced underground, Spencer discovers a secretive presence may be the culprit behind the seemingly senseless killings. A force many have tried to stop without success. A force that’s chosen its next victim: Spencer’s son!

BLAM!

agent for the Global Crime Task Force sent to infiltrate the criminal organization known as The Syndicate Six. When his cover is blown, his wife taken, and daughter murdered before his eyes, Frank wakes up barely a man, a torso with an unrecognizable face, hanging in a warehouse and used as an example for those who betray The Syndicate Six. However, Frank is rescued by Special Forces and taken to a secret installation where in its depths a massive facility of alien technology awaits. There Frank is given the bionic treatment! After rejecting his new duties, Frank seizes an opportunity to escape and go rogue to find his missing wife and seek revenge for the murder of his daughter using a new body that gives him the means to track down and destroy the killers!

• Kord & Harley is a supernatural buddy book set in the here and

now. The Catholic church has set up a secret order to deal with demonic activity and possession. Led by Father Merrick, a man with a long, secretive past and his ever-watchful assistant, Sister Margaret Day, together they oversee and advise their unique charges: Kord, an 11th century stone golem that has converted from the Kabbalic teachings to Catholicism, and Harley, a teenaged genetic experiment wherein scientists spliced human DNA with that of several reptiles. The first seven-issue story arc pits the unlikely duo against the demonic forces of Hell — namely, the Seven Deadly Sins!

MWUMBA

• Mwumba is the story about a little girl named Cassandra, the ruler

of the jungle Mwumba. Everything in Cassandra’s world centers on her and that’s just the way she likes it! For the first time, a mysterious monster has come into her jungle and is not only breaking sacred Mwumban law by eating vegetables, but worse yet, is taking all of the attention that rightfully belongs to her!

JUL-DEC 2011


• Theophilus embodies the archetypal noble warrior. When the

lines are clear in a just cause, he fights as your greatest champion. But, life rarely remains clear. Theophilus refuses to believe that breeding and sacrificing innocent children is necessary for his race’s survival. Unfortunately, his president and former military colleagues believe otherwise. And both sides are about to put the force of their convictions to the ultimate test! Scionic tells an epic tale about a father figure and the children who look up to him. It explores the moral lines in war that any human society might cross when it feels under constant threat.

THE WINGMAN GN

• Wingman follows the adventures of two best friends, Hank and Max, whose main mission in life is picking up women. Hank, more confident and good looking than Max, is the stud of the two, while Max is mostly relegated to wingman status. One day, lightning (literally) strikes and alters Hank’s chemistry such that he’s no longer able to pick up women. However, women now find any man within a few feet of Hank irresistible — thus, Max instantly goes from Wingman to Cassanova!

TROUT GN

• Trout is the story of a nine-year-old boy — and the monster sent

to protect him! It centers on a virus created to eradicate the monster gene, and has the power to turn man to monster, and monster to man. Under attack, the scientist who created this Final Solution injects it into his son in order to hide it. Now, everyone wants it and will do anything to get their hands on it!

• Nelson Mandela of South Africa is one of the most important figures of the last century. He is a symbol of the struggle against racial and political oppression, and a model for sustaining that struggle with grace and decency. Born into an elite family of the Thembu people, Mandela could have had an elevated place under European control, but he chose a different route. He became a successful lawyer, political activist, national leader, fugitive guerrilla, and finally a prisoner of South Africa’s brutal white supremacist apartheid regime. After 25 years in prison, Mandela walked free to become the first black president in South Africa’s first multi-racial election. He has since gone on to become a beloved international figure, like a 90-year-old rock star, an icon dedicated to sacrifice for those in need.

• Nola is born into poverty in Sarsenay City. When her mother

As she grows up, she embraces her new life, and even finds a small circle of friends. All too soon, her world is again turned upside down when one of them is murdered. When a handsome, young Otherseer from the castle promises to teach her, she eagerly embraces the prospects of luxury beyond what she can imagine and safety from a killer who stalks girls by night. Little does she know that he will soon draw her into a web of murder, treachery, and obsessive desire that will threaten the people and land she holds dear, and that she will soon learn the harshest of lessons: that being able to predict the future has nothing to do with being able to prevent it.

BLACKJACKED AND PISTOL-WHIPPED: THE BEST OF CRIME DOES NOT PAY

Gangsters, kidnappers, maniacal killers, and thugs of all stripes had their lurid stories recounted in Crime Does Not Pay, a seminal forties comic-book series. Bob Wood, its editor, brutally murdered his girlfriend, did prison time, and was then murdered himself! This fascinating sidebar is described in an essay by cartoonist, historian, and co-editor Denis Kitchen.

Featuring thrilling, brutal tales and despicable characters, Crime Does Not Pay enthralled a nation. With a claimed readership of over five million, it was the most popular comic book of its day. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the Comics Code Authority, yet it was an inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman’s reality-based EC Comics.

DARK HORSE

The crazy world of Gantz just got a heck of a lot crazier! First, there were people being recruited at the moment of death to fight aliens living on earth, but unseen by humanity. The battles seemed to take place outside of human sight. Our reluctant hero, Kei, has lived through many of these battles, but now something strange is happening. People can see the Gantz and their alien adversaries! Will the civilians believe what they see, or are their lives so full of media that they think it’s just fantastic 3-D entertainment? With a recently released live-action film in Japan, Gantz is a series on a serious upswing, with a whole lot of story still to come.

But when a pair of psychic brothers barge in from outer space and turn the army into bad guys, who gets the call to set things right? Axe Cop!

GREEN RIVER KILLER: A TRUE DETECTIVE STORY

Acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen presents the ultimate insider’s account of America’s most prolific serial killer in Green River Killer: A Detective Story.

In 1984, finding the murderer of dozens of women throughout the Seattle area became the highest priority of local police. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was left in the hands of a single detective Jeff Jensen’s father Tom Jensen. In 2003, after finally apprehending the Green River Killer with DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most tightly held secrets—an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.

SKY LINK (YAOI)

• Ban Ritsuki was looking forward to his university life. Then, on

his very first day, he bumps into a strange man on campus who tells him that he has the sort of face that he likes. Reacting badly, he tells the man he is disgusting. Unfortunately, that was not the end of the matter, as the stranger turns out to be one of his lecturers, Takagi Shoutaro! Ban finds this irritating enough, but Takagi can’t seem to get the message that Ban wants Takagi to leave Ban alone as much as possible. To be honest, Takagi just really pushes Ban’s rage buttons. That is, until one unguarded moment when Ban catches sight of Takagi sky gazing, with a look of intense melancholy upon his face. Finding his heart unexpectedly moved, Ban discovers that sometimes irritation can be a symptom of something besides anger, but what is it?

CANIFF HC

• He’s been called “The Rembrandt of the Comic Strip” and the “Greatest •

Generation’s Cartoonist-in-Chief.” No comics artist has so heavily influenced his medium and no cartoonist has seen more imitators than Milton Arthur Caniff, the creator of Terry and the Pirates, Male Call, and Steve Canyon. While these three classic newspaper strips have been reprinted, until now, the immense talent behind them has never been afforded a large-scale art monograph dedicated to his entire career. Produced with full access to Caniff’s extensive personal archives at The Ohio State University, and with the cooperation of the Caniff estate, this oversized book reproduces from the original artwork hundreds of comics, illustrations, pencil sketches, and drawings — including many not previously reprinted. In addition to the three famous comic strips, represented are his childhood drawings, the beginnings of his career as a newspaper cartoonist, his significant contributions to the 1940s war effort, as well as his continuing relationship with the Air Force, Boy Scouts, and other organizations.

• As popular and influential as Bram Stoker’s classic

tale of nocturnal menace is, this 1897 novel did not invent vampire fiction, nor was it alone in feeding the Gothic fantasies of the Victorian period. IDW Publishing presents an expertly selected menu of outstanding vampire stories that either informed or benefited from Bram Stoker’s hugely popular creation. These eerie tales of the undead — some 22 in all — form the core cannon of classic vampire literature. Chosen and introduced by celebrated literary scholar and author Leslie S. Klinger (The New Annotated Dracula), with illustrations by an array of noted horror artists, In the Shadow of Dracula brings to adventuresome readers stories of nocturnal terror that have lived in Stoker’s shadow for too long. Authors include M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, and Bram Stoker himself. Included are what’s considered the first true vampire story 1816, as well the classic novella Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu, the first vampire tale with a lesbian theme (it’s been adapted to comics and film several times), and “The Family of the Vourdalak” by Aleksei Tolstoy (he’s the cousin of the famous one), which gave Boris Karloff one of his greatest roles.

Two takes place in the psychedelic daze of Swinging London during 1969, a place where Tadukic Acid Diethylamide 26 is the drug of choice, and where different underworlds are starting to overlap dangerously to an accompaniment of sit-ins and sitars. The vicious gangster bosses of London’s East End find themselves brought into contact with a counter-culture underground of mystical and medicated flower-children, or amoral pop-stars on the edge of psychological disintegration and a developing taste for Satanism. Alerted to a threat concerning the same magic order that she and her colleagues were investigating during 1910, a thoroughly modern Mina Murray and her dwindling league of comrades attempt to navigate the perilous rapids of London’s hippy and criminal subculture, as well as the twilight world of its occultists. Starting to buckle from the pressures of the twentieth century and the weight of their own endless lives, Mina and her companions must nevertheless prevent the making of a Moonchild that might well turn out to be the antichrist!

The Forsaken Isles are on the brink of revolution. Three individuals are about to push it over the edge and trigger events that will lead to a final showdown between ancient forces and the new overlords of the land. Spaeth Dobrin is destined to life as a ritual healer — but as the dhotamar of the tiny, isolated island of Yora, she will be caught in a perpetual bond between herself and the people she has cured. Is it slavery, or is it love? Meanwhile, Harg, the troubled and rebellious veteran, returns to find his home transformed by conquest. And Nathaway, the well-intentioned imperialist, arrives to teach Spaeth’s people “civilization,” only to become an explorer in the strange realm of the Forsakens. These two men will propel Spaeth into a vortex of war, temptation, and — just possibly — freedom!

• Darrin’s life has been going downhill ever since his

girlfriend Bridget walked out on him without a word of explanation six months ago. Soon after losing her, he lost his job, and his car, and eventually his enthusiasm for life. He can’t imagine things getting worse — until he sees Bridget again, for the first time since she walked out, just moments before she leaps to her death from a bridge. In his quest to find out why Bridget took her own life, he encounters a depressive (and possibly immortal) cult leader; a man with a car that can drive out of this world and into others; a beautiful psychotic with a chrome shotgun; and a bridge that, maybe, leads to heaven. Darrin’s journey leads him into a place called the Briarpatch, which is either the crawlspace of the universe, or a series of ambitious building projects abandoned by god, or a tangle of alternative universes, depending on who you ask. Somewhere in that disorderly snarl of worlds, he hopes to find Bridget again... or at least a reason to live without her.

THE CLOCKWORK ROCKET • In Yalda’s universe, light has no universal speed and

its creation generates energy. On Yalda’s world, plants make food by emitting their own light into the dark night sky. As a child, Yalda witnesses one of a series of strange meteors, the Hurtlers, that are entering the planetary system at an immense, unprecedented speed. It becomes apparent that her world is in imminent danger — and the task of dealing with the Hurtlers will require knowledge and technology far beyond anything her civilization has yet achieved! Only one solution seems tenable: if a spacecraft can be sent on a journey at sufficiently high speed, its trip will last many generations for those on board, but it will return after just a few years have passed at home. The travelers will have a chance to discover the science their planet urgently needs, and bring it back in time to avert disaster.

• Recent World War II veteran Bull Ingram is working

as muscle when a Memphis DJ hires him to find Ramblin’ John Hastur. The mysterious blues man’s dark, driving music — broadcast at ever-shifting frequencies by a phantom radio station — is said to make living men insane and dead men rise. Disturbed and enraged by the bootleg recording the DJ plays for him, Ingram follows Hastur’s trail into the strange, uncivilized backwoods of Arkansas, where he hears rumors the musician has sold his soul to the Devil. But as Ingram closes in on Hastur and those who have crossed his path, he’ll learn there are forces much more malevolent than the Devil and reckonings more painful than Hell... In a masterful debut of Lovecraftian horror and Southern gothic menace, John Hornor Jacobs reveals the fragility of free will, the dangerous power of sacrifice, and the insidious strength of blood.

THE WHITEFIRE CROSSING

caravan teams that bring legitimate merchandise from the free city of Ninavel into the kingdom of Alathia.

But with the right connections, one can slip magical gems from one side of the mountain pass, where they are legal, to the other side, where they are not. Having made a promise to a dying friend, Dev is forced to make a singularly dangerous Whitefire crossing. Instead of smuggling gems, he’s smuggling a person. Kiran: A blood mage on the run from his master… a blood mage desperate to sneak into a kingdom where blood mages are imprisoned for life. Caught up in a web of subterfuge and magic that endanger the entire caravan, Dev and Kiran must find a way to trust each other with their darkest secrets in order to overcome the forces arrayed against them!

THE BOOK OF CTHULHU

• The Cthulhu Mythos is one of the 20th century’s

most singularly recognizable literary creations. Initially created by H. P. Lovecraft and a group of his amorphous contemporaries (the so-called “Lovecraft Circle”), The Cthulhu Mythos story cycle has taken on a convoluted, cyclopean life of its own. Some of the most prodigious writers of the 20th century, and some of the most astounding writers of the 21st century have planted their seeds in this fertile soil. The Book of Cthulhu harvests the weirdest and most corpulent crop of these modern mythos tales. From weird fiction masters to enigmatic rising stars, The Book of Cthulhu demonstrates how Mythos fiction has been a major cultural meme throughout the 20th century, and how this type of story is still salient, and terribly powerful today.

THE PANAMA LAUGH • Ex-mercenary,

pirate, and gun-runner Dante Bogart knows he’s screwed the pooch after he hands one of his shady employers a biological weapon that made the dead rise from their graves, laugh like hyenas, and feast upon the living. Dante tried to blow the whistle via a tell-all video that went viral — but that was before the black ops boys deep-sixed him at a secret interrogation site on the Panama-Colombia border. When Dante wakes up in the jungle with the five intervening years missing from his memory, he knows he’s got to do something about the laughing sickness that has caused a world-wide slaughter. The resulting journey leads him across the nightmare that was the Panama Canal, around Cape Horn in a hijacked nuclear warship, to San Francisco’s mission district, where a crew of survivalist hackers have holed up in the pseudo-Moorish-castle turned porn-studio known as The Armory. This mixed band of anti-social rejects has taken Dante’s whistle blowing video as an underground gospel, leading the fight against the laughing corpses and the corporate stooges who’ve tried to profit from the slaughter. Can Dante find redemption and save civilization?

HEART OF IRON

• In a Russia where the Decembrists’ rebellion was suc-

cessful and the Trans-Siberian railroad was completed before 1854, Sasha Trubetskaya wants nothing more than to have a decent debut ball in St. Petersburg. But her aunt’s feud with the emperor lands Sasha at university, where she becomes one of its first female students — an experiment, she suspects, designed more to prove female unsuitability for such pursuits than offer them education. The pressure intensifies when Sasha’s only friends — Chinese students — start disappearing, and she begins to realize that her new British companion, Jack, has bigger secrets than she can imagine! Sasha and Jack find themselves trying to stop a war brewing between the three empires. The only place they can turn to for help is the Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace, newly founded by the Taiping rebels. Pursued by the terrifying Dame Florence Nightingale of the British Secret Service, Sasha and Jack escape across Siberia via train to China. Sasha discovers that Jack is not quite the person she thought he was...but then again, neither is she.

DOCTOR WHO: TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL

• In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a road accident.

Her husband Mark is still grieving. Then he receives a battered envelope, posted eight years ago, containing a set of instructions and a letter with a simple message: “You can save her.” Later that night, while picking up a takeaway, Mark glances at a security monitor — to see himself, standing in the restaurant in grainy black and white. And behind him there’s a stone statue of an angel. Covering its eyes, as though weeping... except, when Mark turns, there’s nothing there. As Mark is given the chance to save Rebecca, it’s up to the Doctor, Amy, and Rory to save the world. Because this time the Weeping Angels are using history itself as a weapon... A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy, and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.
