THE LAST ZOMBIE

• In the madness of the Zombie Apocalypse, amid the throngs of

living dead and terrified victims, the littlest zombie roams. He’s just an inquisitive chap filled with curiosity about the world on fire around him. Pushed around by his fellow undead (who always get to the brains first), and positively frowned upon by the remaining living citizens, the poor little guy just wants a friend. And maybe something to chew on. Like your face. Supreme storyteller Fred Perry spins heart-warming (and braineating) yarns of post-apocalyptic whimsy in his latest creation!

• Follow the frantic journey of a man seeking his one ray of hope

in a post-apocalyptic nightmare United States. The zombies have come and (mostly) gone, but the disease is still out there, threatening the survivors. The country swarms with roving packs of wild animals — and worse, desperate humans ready to do whatever it takes to survive. Through it all, one man must drive from California to New York to reunite with the woman he loves before it’s too late for either of them! Check your fuel tanks, weapons, and supplies; buckle down tight; and get ready for a thrill ride that may leave you breathless — or not even breathing! Brian Keene, the horror novelist acclaimed as one of the major forces behind the new era of zombie popularity, is bringing an all-new, fright-filled feature to Antarctic Press.

KEY SELLING POINTS:

• Shocker Award recipient and two-time Bram Stoker Award winner, Brian Keene is known worldwide for his novels and short stories of the shambling undead! Keene teams up with A.P. powerhouse Fred Perry (Gold Digger, The Littlest Zombie) to tell a terror-tinged tale for the ages!

• Homicide Detective William Zhu has just made the arrest of his career. With the apprehension of Richard Pickman, he has solved over 100 missing child cases, some of which date back over 30 years. The excavation of Pickman’s basement reveals horrors beyond imagination…the bodies of children mutilated in bizarre satanic rites. Frustrated with his role of cleanup man to the detritus of the world, Zhu makes what may be a fatal mistake: He decides to kill Pickman. Fatal, for Richard Pickman is no ordinary psychopath. The rituals he performed were not the work of a madman, but sacrifices made to a very real demon. A demon who has granted Pickman near immortality. Killing Pickman is going to be a lot tougher than Zhu could have imagined. It may not even be possible!

Born into a peaceful yet primitive tribe of N’Yark, in a radioactive future America, Samson vows to protect his defenseless human kin from the dangers around them — and his motto becomes, “To protect the weak from the powerful, the good from the evil!” With the beautiful Sharmaine and her scientist father, Mindor, Samson ventures out into his strange world on a quest to unravel the secrets of his country’s past while surviving in a future filled with ridiculously transformed animals and desperate, violent humans. Surprisingly lighthearted, these tales have more than a little humor mixed in with their themes of destruction and human folly.

To atone for the atrocities committed under his watch, Habaki Kagimura is no longer the top general for Edo castle and the shogunate, and—he must commit ritual suicide. While his replacement gave the despised Ittoryü gang a reprieve and an order to leave Edo and remain in exile, Kagimura still has one shot to redeem himself. Desperate and with very little time left, he’s assembled his Rokki-dan warriors—with Kagimura’s own daughter among their numbers—and he now seeks to hunt down and wipe out the Itto-ryü for good. But in his haste, will he fall for a string of traps planned by Anotsu, their devious leader? Freed and unfazed by his time in Edo’s dungeons, Manji searches for his missing limb, and a few old friends return to the pages of this action-filled, epic manga series.

After revolutionizing the worlds of design and storytelling in 1984, Dean Motter’s Mister X reinvented alternative comics. Radiant City’s utopian design and futuristic architecture should have made it the City of Dreams. Instead, a flaw in the city’s psychetecture caused an epidemic of insanity among its residents. After years of exile, one of Radiant’s original architects, Mister X, is given a chance to redeem himself and the city when he is asked to redesign the skyline in hope of a cure. But some of the originally designed structures that were never built have begun appearing — with subtle changes — and Mister X must find the secret behind this mysterious urban renewal before Radiant City’s inhabitants tear the city apart!

• Bobby Godric quit school, built a tech empire from

scratch, and became a multibillionaire by the age of thirty-two. Tireless, inventive, and skilled at surrounding himself with brilliant minds, it seems there is nothing he can’t do — except save his beloved wife, Nora, from brain cancer. But Bobby will not allow even death to stand between him and his one true love. And if there’s no way on this Earth to bring her back, he’ll find another Earth. Devoting his vast fortune and an extraordinary team of scientists and visionaries to the task, Bobby finds the holy grail he so desperately seeks: proof that infinite parallel worlds exist in other dimensions — and the means to reach them. Rescuing his lost love from a world where destiny has not doomed her is all that matters to Bobby Godric — until he encounters a monstrous alien race systematically annihilating humankind and claiming planet Earth, again and again, on a murderous march of conquest across the dimensions! Unless the multiverse of duplicate Earths can be rallied against the invaders, the next world to fall will be our own! Conceived by New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz and adapted and illustrated by a duo of Marvel and DC Comics veterans — writer Keith Champagne and artist Andy Smith — Nevermore is a marvelous flight into breathless suspense, mindbending imagination, and chilling terror not to be missed!

The story chronicles one night in the lives of the New York City street gang, the Warriors, and their harrowing journey for survival and redemption.

But during the meeting, Cyrus is assassinated, and the murder is pinned on a member of the Warriors. With no time to prove their innocence, the Warriors have no choice: they must run — for their lives and for their honor. But it’s a long, long way from the Bronx to Coney Island, especially with an entire city of ruthless thugs swearing vengeance and out for blood.

GARTH ENNIS’ BATTLEFIELDS VOLUME 6: MOTHERLAND TP • The

sequel to 2009’s The Night Witches! Lieutenant Anna Kharkova is posted to single-seat fighter aircraft and sent straight into action. Hardened and embittered by the loss of her comrades, Anna is only too keen to get her teeth into the enemy — but with Russian and German armies about to collide in the titanic battle of Kursk, her first flight with her new squadron may well be her last! And once the Soviet secret police start sniffing around, death in battle may well be preferable anyway.

China was under constant threat of invasion by powerful tribes and warring states along its rugged western border. For generations, one fiercely-patriotic clan of warriors — the “Yang” — battled bravely in the nation’s defense. The widows of the clan pleaded with the Emperor, whose own court had become weakened by corruption and greed, to send reinforcements. But none came. Soon, the last remaining Yang soldiers were overwhelmed by a sea of bloodthirsty invaders. Distraught and incensed, the Yang widows — a few hundred strong and many of whom also seasoned warriors — took arms and set off to the western border. But even before reaching the enemy, the journey itself would be fraught with peril. In their determination to avenge the deaths of their loved ones, the Widow Warriors would face the full fury of nature’s most destructive forces, a vast enemy army with sorcery and monsters on its side, and perhaps most powerful of all, the demons within themselves! Pat Lee’s return to comics! Collecting the four-issue series, plus bonus material and cover gallery in one volume.

Briggs has written five Mercy Thompson novels to date, all New York Times bestsellers. Her 6th Mercy novel, River Marked, is due for publication January 25, 2011. Moon Called is a direct follow-up to the hit Mercy Thompson comic book series Homecoming, published by Dabel Bros/Del Rey in 2008-2009.

ANIMAL CRACKERS • From the creators of Gary the Pirate comes the incredible tale of Animal Crackers. When 10 year old Owen and his little sister Zoe go to the Zoo with their Uncle Doug, they’re looking for excitement and laughs. Little did they know that they would be drawn into an adventure where Magic Animal Crackers give them the power to turn into any animal they want! Suddenly the Ringmaster of the circus and all of his minions, Petunia the bearded lady, Stabby the tiniest ninja, and even the acrobatic group of the Flying Zuccinis, all want to take the children away and use them for their own profit. But with the help of a bunch of Circus clowns and a kindly old gypsy woman, Owen uses the magical box of animal crackers to turn into Lions, Tigers, and even Bears (...oh my!) to defeat the evil Ringmaster and rescue the stolen animals from captivity.

Among rock’s greats who have performed at one or more of the Fillmores include Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, John Fogarty, the Who, Pink Floyd, and the Doors. Prominent other-than-rock musicians including Willie Nelson, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Muddy Waters, Miles Davis, and dozens more were just as proud to have “played the Fillmore.” The Fillmore venue was first made famous by promoter Bill Graham, and — nearly 45 years later — is still the place for classic rock, light shows, and psychedelic concert posters.

Part of the secret of his humor comes from our shock at seeing people act the way people really do, rather than this whitewashed portrayal of so-called average people that we see in modern television and movies. The situations Peter creates for his characters are gripping, hilarious and bitingly honest. His drawing style is completely original and would be funny on its own, even without his great stories. This kind of perfect blend of art and humor is what we are all striving for.” — John Kricfalusi (Ren & Stimpy)

Breathed is one of only two cartoonists to win a Pulitzer for editorial cartooning (Garry Trudeau was also a recipient for Doonesbury).

This is because of a near-death experience suffered by Breathed, who, having broken his back in an ultralight-plane crash, was unable to continue his daily grind and the strip went on hiatus for nearly two months. Breathed went on to incorporate some of his experiences into one of the most famous Bloom County sequences ever — Steve Dallas breaking his back after being attacked by an enraged Sean Penn!

• Catfights

and crossdressers, mad scientists and Gestapo agents with swastikas branding irons — it’s one lurid and exciting adventure after another in this lavish, full-color collection of the first female superhero to be created and drawn by a woman. Miss Fury was a sexy adventurer clad in a skin-tight panther costume. By day, she was socialite Marla Drake. By night… Miss Fury! In the first half of the 20th century, women cartoonists could be found in America’s newspapers, but Tarpé Mills was one of the few who drew adventure comics, and the only one who drew a costumed superheroine. The Miss Fury Sunday newspaper strip ran from 1941 until 1952 and had millions of readers, among them GIs who painted the beautiful action heroine on the nosecones of their bombers. Eisner- and Harvey-nominated writer and historian Trina Robbins has chosen the best Miss Fury stories for this oversized collection, which also features a biographical essay about Tarpé Mills that places her within the history of women cartoonists, and includes pages from an unpublished and unfinished Miss Fury graphic novel by Mills from 1979.

KEY SELLING POINTS:

• The first female super-heroine created by a woman! • Trina Robbins won a Special Achievement Award from the San Diego Comic Con in 1989 for her work on Strip AIDS U.S.A., a benefit book that she co-edited with Bill Sienkiewicz and Robert Triptow. In addition to her comics work, Trina Robbins is an author of non-fiction books, including several with an emphasis on the history of women in cartooning.

And the all-too average explosive rage.

NAPIER’S BONES • What if, in a world where mathematics could be magic, the thing you desired most was also trying to kill you? Dom is a numerate, someone able to see and control numbers and use them as a form of magic. While seeking a mathematical item of immense power that has only been whispered about, it all goes south for Dom, and he finds himself on the run across three countries on two continents, with two unlikely companions in tow and a numerate of unfathomable strength hot on his tail. Along the way are giant creatures of stone and earth, statues come alive, numerical wonders cast over hundreds of years, and the very real possibility that he won’t make it out of this alive. And both of his companions have secrets so deep that even they aren’t aware of them, and one of those secrets could make for a seismic shift in how Dom and all other numerates see and interact with the world.

EUTOPIA: A NOVEL OF TERRIBLE OPTIMISM • The year is 1911. In Cold Spring Harbour, New York, the

newly formed Eugenics Records Office is sending its agents to catalogue the infirm, the insane, and the criminal — with an eye to a cull, for the betterment of all. Near Cracked Wheel, Montana, a terrible illness leaves Jason Thistledown an orphan, stranded in his dead mother’s cabin until the spring thaw shows him the true meaning of devastation — and the barest thread of hope. At the edge of the utopian mill town of Eliada, Idaho, Doctor Andrew Waggoner faces a Klansman’s noose and glimpses wonder in the twisting face of the patient known only as Mister Juke. And deep in a mountain lake overlooking that town, something stirs, and thinks, in its way: Things are looking up. Eutopia follows Jason and Andrew as together and alone, they delve into the secrets of Eliada — industrialist Garrison Harper’s attempt to incubate a perfect community on the edge of the dark woods and mountains of northern Idaho. What they find reveals the true, terrible cost of perfection — the cruelty of the surgeon’s knife — the folly of the cull — and a monstrous pact with beings that use perfection as a weapon, and faith as a trap.

NEVER KNEW ANOTHER • Fugitive

Rachel Nolander is a newcomer to the city of Dogsland, where the rich throw parties and the poor just do whatever they can to scrape by. Supported by her brother Djoss, she hides out in their squalid apartment, living in fear that someday, someone will find out that she is the child of a demon. Corporal Jona Lord Joni is a demon’s child too, but instead of living in fear, he keeps his secret and goes about his life as a cocky, self-assured man of the law. The first book in the Dogsland Trilogy, Never Knew Another is the story of how these two outcasts meet.

OF BLOOD AND HONEY Derry had always assumed that he was the bastard of a protestant — his mother never spoke of him, and Liam assumed he was dead. But when the war between the fallen and the fey began to heat up, Liam and his family are pulled into a conflict that they didn’t know existed. A centuries old conflict between supernatural forces seems to mirror the political divisions in 1970’s era Ireland, and Liam is thrown headlong into both conflicts! Only the direct intervention of Liam’s real father, and a secret catholic order dedicated to fighting “The Fallen” can save Liam… from the mundane and supernatural forces around him, and from the darkness that lurks within him.

JAN-JUN 2011

ies — these are the men and women you will encounter in the short fiction of Kim Stanley Robinson. In settings ranging from the sunken ruins of Venice to the upper reaches of the Himalayas to the terraformed surface of Mars itself, and through themes of environmental sustainability, social justice, personal responsibility, sports, adventure, and fun, Robinson’s protagonists explore a world which stands in sharp contrast to many of the traditional locales and mores of science fiction, presenting instead a world in which Utopia rests within our grasp. From Kim Stanley Robinson, award-winning author of the Mars Trilogy, the Three Californias Trilogy, the Science in the Capital series, The Martians, and The Years of Rice and Salt, comes The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson. These twenty-two stories, including the Nebula Award-winning “The Blind Geometer,” and World Fantasy Award winner “Black Air” represent The Best of Kim Stanley Robinson.

• Science fiction legend Robert Silverberg reflects on some of his earliest, least-reprinted tales in this new Planet Stories collection! Between 1956 and 1958, Silverberg contributed dozens of short stories and novellas to the digest pulps, each written in the bombastic, high-adventure style of the original Planet Stories magazine. Since then, those tales have reappeared only rarely (and sometimes never again) in long out-of-print paperback anthologies. This volume, the first of three to come this year, features seven hard-to-find classic Silverberg novellas: Slaves of the Star Giants, Spawn of the Deadly Sea, The Flame and the Hammer, Valley Beyond Time, Hunt the Space-Witch!, The Silent Invaders, and Spacerogue.

The race is on to free Lord Stelan from the grip of a wasting curse, and only his old, half-elf mercenary companion Elyana has the wisdom — and swordcraft — to solve the mystery of his tormentor and free her old friend before three days have passed and the illness takes its course. When the villain turns out to be another of their former companions, the half-elf sets out with a team of adventurers across the Revolution-wracked nation of Galt and the treacherous Five Kings Mountains to discover the key to Stelan’s salvation in a lost valley warped by weird magical energies and inhabited by terrible nightmare beasts.

Running for sixteen issues in 1919, it was a magazine of “strange, bizzare, occult, mysterious tales,” but not quite a fantastic-fiction magazine, mixing various types of adventure stories with often outstanding fantasy, horror, and science fiction by Murray Leinster, Seabury Quinn, Francis Stevens, Perley Moore Sheehan, Tod Robbins, Edward Lucas White, Greye La Spina, and other giants of the pulp era. While sheer scarcity may have once added something to the lustre of The Thrill Book, now that an issue is finally made available at an affordable price, the reader may appreciate that this truly was a pioneering — and supremely entertaining — publication.

Allies roam about the game board, handing out benefits or detriments to players, depending on the type of Trauma Token assigned to them.

Several ancient civilizations once carved out a mighty empire on its shores, but the passage of time and the ravaging of wild beasts have driven them to ruin, leaving behind priceless artifacts and confusing maps to their hidden locations. The year is 1934, and your expedition has crash landed on this exotic island. Your chance for infinite riches is within your grasp. But you don’t want to share the loot with the rest of the expedition, do you? Isla Dorada is a board game of exploration and treasure for 3-6 players. Designed by the creative team of Bruno Faidutti, Alan R Moon, Andrea Angiolino, and Piergiorgio Paglia, Isla Dorada lets you guide your expedition through hazardous terrain and hostile territory, exploring the wonders of Isla Dorada while you compete to find the most treasure among your fellow explorers. In Isla Dorada, players join together to form an expedition, navigating through a mysterious and treasureridden island. However, since each player is competing to be the one explorer to find the most treasure, they each have their own treasure maps and their own secret motivations. To move the expedition, players bid cards that allow them to move the expedition through certain terrain. Whoever wins the bid gets to move the expedition and potentially find their hidden treasure. But, watch your step! If the Island doesn’t get you, your friends might!

Each game takes place within a pre-designed story that provides players with a unique map and several combinations of plot threads.

The other players take on the role of investigators, searching for answers while struggling to survive with their minds intact. Both the engaging plot and the stunning components will draw you into a world of cosmic horror. The beautifully rendered modular map tiles show every intricate feature of the rooms you’ll search, and the monster figures represent the otherworldly forces of evil in horrific detail. The bases for each monster figure even have slots into which you can insert that monster’s token, displaying only the pertinent statistics. All together, the 32 included figures, over 300 cards, over 200 tokens and markers, and nearly 70 puzzle tiles, will help immerse you in a sanity-bending story of terrifying mystery.
