The Silver Bullet The Silver Bullet is the greatest hero Earth has ever known, at least in his own mind. This is not really the best news for the planet, seeing as he’s a little bit thick and monumentally self-centered. Luckily, he’s also really strong, super-fast, has a fuse on top of his head (which looks totally rad in all his promotional pictures), and craves the attention and adoration of millions. With the help of his best friend Bigfoot and his best frenemy Half-Cat/Half-Man (not to mention Shoogla the Caveman, Sexy Rexy, and the Squigglies), the Silver Bullet travels through time and space, fighting aliens, Naziwerewolves, robo-pirates, cowboy monkeys, and ninja-zombies, saving the Earth time and time again.

White Knuckle Forty years ago, Seth Rigal was a man to be feared – a serial strangler with a string of victims. Now nearly seventy and tormented by a lifetime of monstrous violence, Rigal lives on the verge of poverty and quietly waits for the death he knows he deserves. Tortured and confused, still tormented by the drives that made him a killer in his youth, Rigal finds himself almost unconsciously stalking the daughter of his final victim – only to have his precious anonymity snatched from him when he accidentally saves her son’s life. Seth Rigal, formerly known as the Gripper, just became a local celebrity. The bodies won’t stay buried any longer. White Knuckle is a complex and intense psychological thriller, distorting the ever-popular “retired gunslinger” motif into a rain-slick urban fantasy of murderous men and the needs that drive them. 100 pages | Full Colour | £11.99p / $15.99 | ISBN: 978-1-905692-73-6 Writer: Cy Dethan | Artist: Valia Kapadai
