WALLY WOOD: THE COMPLETE GALAXY ILLUSTRATIONS HC

Roger Hill (w) • Wally Wood (a & c)

Wally Wood’s career is legendary among the annals of comic’s history. He rocketed to fame working on Will Eisner’s The Spirit newspaper strip and became one of the most talented artists working for EC Comics during the 1950s. Wood also became a star of EC’s satire comic called Mad, which went on to even greater success as a magazine, allowing the artist to apply his amazing talents in a broader spectrum. When the comics industry fell on lean times during the mid 1950s, Wood segued into the field of science fiction pulp illustration, providing over 200 beautiful drawings and several color cover paintings for the digest magazines; particularly Galaxy. Wood left behind a legacy of great art, much of which has never been reprinted. This book will feature them all. Long time Wally Wood historian Roger Hill has spent the past twenty years pulling together the history of Wood’s involvement with the pulp digests and tracking down original art for this project. Over half of the images have been pulled from the originals or from Wood’s personal file copies, allowing Wood fans the finest possible reproduction!

NEVSKY: HERO OF THE PEOPLE HC

Ben McCool (w) • Mario Guevara (a & c)

Written by Ben McCool (Memoir, Pigs) with art by rising star Mario Guevara (Solomon Kane, Victorian Undead), this full-length graphic novel is a stunning re-imagination of Sergei Eisenstein's famed film, Alexander Nevsky (1938). Alexander Nevsky is a central figure in Russian history, having lived during one of Russia's darkest periods--the invasion of the Teutonic Knights. Alexander Nevsky helped establish the Russian nation by defeating the Teutonic Knights, invaders from the last vestiges of the Holy Roman Empire, with an army comprised of ordinary citizens who were poorly-equipped soldiers but fought for their freedom. This ragtag band, against overwhelming odds, defeated the invaders in an epic battle on the frozen lake Peipus--a spectacular achievement that is still celebrated in Russia to this day. In 1938 the great Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein, much acclaimed for his masterful interpretation as seen in "Battleship Potemkin" (1925) and "Ivan the Terrible" (1944), brought the story of Alexander Nevsky to life on the silver screen in an innovative and brilliant way, by developing new film techniques that remain in use almost 100 years later by some of the greatest directors of our time. Now, following in the steps of Eisenstein, IDW is proud to present one of the most compelling historical graphic novels ever produced--one that is as relevant today as it was at any time in history!

V-WARS HC

Jonathan Maberry, Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson (w)

A sweeping threaded narrative of the global phenomenon known as the Vampire Wars.

Mankind has been silently infected by millennia-old bacteria unknowingly exhumed by a scientific expedition in Antarctica. Now, in some rare cases, a person’s so-called “junk DNA” becomes activated, and depending on their racial and ethnic heritage they begin to manifest one of the many diverse forms of the “others” that are the true basis for the legends of supernatural creatures. These aren’t your usual vampires and werewolves—it goes much deeper than that.

Conceived by Jonathan Maberry, V WARS features stories from various “frontlines” as reported by such contributors as Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson (as well as Maberry himself, of course).

The result is a compelling series of tales that create a unique chronicle of mankind’s response to this sudden, hidden threat to humanity.

100 MONTHS GN

(W/A/CA) John Hicklenton

The final work of a comics visionary, this intense, hallucinatory story with artwork of breathtaking intensity is a true graphic novel, engaging ultimate themes of life, death, and salvation. The late John Hicklenton was one of Britain's leading comic book artists, famous for the brutal, visceral draughtsmanship he brought to 2000AD. His final graphic novel is a parable of environmental devastation, depicting the quest of Mara, Warrior and Earth Goddess, as she seeks revenge against the Longpig: a Satanic personification of capitalism, red in tooth and claw, whose followers, a legion of the damned, look quite a lot like us. This book was drawn and written in foreknowledge of his imminent death, and its insight into universal themes of life, death, salvation, and damnation seems to come from a place between worlds.

DRAWN & QUARTERLY

JERUSALEM: CHRONICLES FROM THE HOLY CITY HC

(W/A/CA) Guy Delisle

Guy Delisle expertly lays the groundwork for a cultural road map of contemporary Jerusalem, utilizing the classic stranger in a strange land point of view that made his other books, such as Pyongyang, required reading for understanding what daily life is like in cities few are able to travel to. In Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City, Delisle explores the complexities of a city that represents so much to so many. He examines the impact of the conflict on the lives of people on both sides of the wall while drolly recounting the quotidian: checkpoints, traffic jams, and holidays. When observing the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim populations that call Jerusalem home, Delisle’s drawn line is both sensitive and fair, assuming nothing and drawing everything. (STK461782)

IDYLL GN

(W/A/CA) Amber Albrecht

Much of Amber Albrecht’s work is inspired by the dreaminess of childhood, whether expressing her cloudy recollections of the storybooks she read as a child or the forested West Coast landscapes that surrounded her. On the pages of Idyll, a series of interconnected myths emerges fully formed, each myth articulating a sense of wistfulness for a past that never was. Idyll employs female iconography in myriad way — many of these works feature female figures, the lushness of the natural environment, and female-associated textures. Albrecht’s Idyll communicates questions about loneliness, passivity, and loss through investigations of femininity and nostalgia for an imagined past. (STK461784)

Burma is notorious for its use of concealment and isolation as social control, where censors monitor the papers, the de facto leader of the opposition has been under decade-long house arrest, insurgent-controlled regions are effectively cut off from the world, and rumor is the most reliable source of current information.

Famously referred to as one of the "Axis of Evil" countries, North Korea remains one of the most secretive and mysterious nations in the world today, even after the death of Kim Jong-il. In early 2001 cartoonist Guy Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country. While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa for a French film animation company, Delisle observed what he was allowed to see of the culture and lives of the few North Koreans he encountered; his findings form the basis of this remarkable graphic novel.

Shenzhen is entertainingly compact with Guy Delisle’s observations of life in urban southern China, sealed off from the rest of the country by electric fences and armed guards. With a dry wit and a clean line, Delisle makes the most of his time spent in Asia overseeing outsourced production for a French animation company. He brings to life the quick pace of Shenzhen’s crowded streets. Delisle skillfully notes the differences between Western and Eastern cultures, while also conveying his compassion for the simple freedoms that escape his colleagues in the Communist state.

THE FAIRY TALES OF OSCAR WILDE VOLUME 5: THE HAPPY PRINCE HC

(W/A/CA) P. Craig Russell

The Happy Prince is arguably the most famous and well loved of Oscar Wilde's nine fairy tales, rivaled only by The Selfish Giant. It is also a very timely tale at a time of controversy over the increasing chasm between rich and poor. The Happy Prince has lived a life of opulence but has died young, and his soul inhabits a beautiful ruby encrusted statue covered all over in gold leaf. From his perch high above the city he is witness to all the poverty, misery, and hopelessness in which his people have been living. When a small barn swallow in flight to the warm south ahead of the approaching winter stops to rest upon the statue the Happy Prince prevails upon him to delay his travels in order to remove his gold leaf a piece at a time and shower it upon the poor citizens. Out of love for the Happy Prince the swallow does his bidding. As the days pass the Prince's beauty is stripped away and as winter sets in the bird's fate is sealed. In the spring the townspeople finding only a dull statue with a broken lead heart and a dead bird consign the worthless objects to the ash heap. Only an emissary of God recognizes them as the most valuable treasures of the city and brings them to the gardens of heaven. (STK461687)

Centered on a young man's desire to join the Paris Opera Ballet, The Carmine Vault brings to life Fafi's colorful and irreverent world for the first time in a lavish graphic novel.

From 1955 to 1957, Science Fiction Theatre, a semi-documentary series, explored the "what ifs" of modern science.

Years of development have gone into creating this entirely new, non-firing replica of Mal's pistol. Using a mold of the original stunt pistol carried by actor Nathan Fillion, we've created a highly detailed piece, from the grips to the trigger to the barrel. Measuring 14" from the tip of the barrel to the back on the hand-painted simulated wood grips, our Mal pistol weighs in at just over a pound, giving it a solid heft. The body is cast in polystone and composed of several metal-plated parts, then painted and weathered to match the antique brass color of the original hero prop, prior to final assembly. (STK461257) Scheduled to ship in May 2012. (7814/FFY0164) (C: 0-1-4)

SUPER 8: THE ARGUS CUBE REPLICA

If aliens made LEGO, this is what it would look like. The Argus Cube, so named by the scientist studying the only alien ever to be captured alive, is an organic magnet, capable of reassembling itself on an atomic level to fit almost any purpose. The cubes, which appear in the movie, Super 8, are the building blocks of the alien's spaceship. Using the 3-D solid model files used to create the screen-used props, QMx has created an exact replica of the Argus Cube in passive mode. With a polystone core, the exterior of the cube is plated with a smooth pearlescent coating, perfectly replicating the semi-organic, semi-metallic finish of the hero prop. Each cube measures 2" on each side and weighs approximately 8 ounces. (STK460957) Scheduled to ship in April 2012. (7814/SP8001) (C: 0-1-4)

KOTOBUKIYA

DC COMICS BATMAN BLACK COSTUME VER. ARTFX STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! A classic returns! One of the original and most popular DC Comics ARTFX Statues is back in a new version to thrill fans all over again. The comic book Dark Knight returns; where once he was the blue-suited Jim Lee Hush version, Bruce Wayne is now BATMAN BLACK COSTUME VER.! Inspired by the magnificent art of Lee in the seminal 2002 storyline pitting Batman against some of his most diabolical enemies, the original ARTFX Statue captured the Caped Crusader as he appeared then. It’s only fitting that with Jim Lee drawing Batman in the current DC 52 Justice League that the classic Batman return in a tremendous all-new color scheme with some minor adjustments to the sculpt. Batman is forever, and ready to fight crime on your shelves!

With his battle-tattered cape swirling dynamically around him, Batman strikes an intimidating pose designed to strike fear into the hearts of the evil doers of Gotham City. Leaping into the fray against Joker or Two-Face, Bruce prepares a wide-legged stance for optimal balance while holding back his cape with one arm and keeping the other free to punch or pull a needed item from his utility belt! The highly detailed sculpt and paint shadowing reveal the billionaire playboy’s muscular physique, trained to the peak of human perfection and highlighted by the skin-tight Batman outfit. The detail on the Dark Knight is just as good as it was on the original version, with expert touches including the belt, swirling cape, and of course the stern head sculpt. Meanwhile, the new black and gray costume colors lend a darker, grittier look to Batman that makes him blend in even better with the night.

Sculpted by Kouei Matsumoto, Batman Black Costume Ver. stands 11 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a special display base. While he looks great on his own, Batman also makes a perfect companion piece to the previously offered Dark Knight, Catwoman, and the Joker!

Born in Tupelo, Mississippi in 1935, Elvis Aaron Presley would become one of the biggest musical performers of all time with more than two dozen number one singles during his lifetime and appearances on television and in films. After a brief stint in the U.S. Army and a number of years spent in Hollywood, Elvis famously returned to his roots with a TV event that became known as the ’68 Comeback Special. Dressed in black leather and playing guitar alongside his singing, the King was on the top of the world!

Based on his appearance in the 1968 Comeback Special, Elvis’ looks and clothing have been painstakingly recreated in this highly detailed action figure; his outfit is even made from real cloth for the most realistic look possible! The iconic singer comes with a full range of historically accurate accessories including microphone and stand, guitar, speaker, and a display base designed to look like part of the stage. To go along with all of the accessories and his flamboyant posing Elvis also comes with several interchangeable hands! But that’s not all.

MARVEL COMICS BLACK WIDOW COVERT OPS VER. BISHOUJO STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The Marvel Comics Bishoujo Statue line (capturing superheroines and villains in the “pretty girl” style) continues with amazing beauties but this month a previously released character sneaks back in with an all-new rendition: BLACK WIDOW COVERT OPS VER.! The beautiful Russian super-spy and member of the Mighty Avengers has received a stunning update in the current 1/7th scale, and is based on a new illustration by the incomparable Shunya Yamashita. Natasha Romanova has appeared in the pages of Marvel Comics since her introduction in 1964, frequently saving the world alongside her fellow Avengers.

The beautiful but mysterious Black Widow has never looked better as she lures an unseen foe into her trap, preparing to vault over a low wall. The sexy Avenger wears her traditional skin-tight bodysuit that leaves little to the imagination, and of course it’s accented by her unique belt, wristbands that fire the “Widow’s Bite,” extra ammunition strapped to her thigh, and built in high-heeled boots! Her entirely new sculpt brings an unprecedented feeling of action and movement (highlighted by her swirling hair), and of course Black Widow’s adorable Bishoujo-inspired face will stop you in your tracks. Interchangeable parts even let you display Natasha with or without her fearsome rifle!

Sculpted by Masahiro Takahashi, the new Covert Ops Black Widow stands over 8 ½ inches tall in 1/7th scale with the current and future Marvel Bishoujo Statues. Her exclusive display base features a broken chunk of wall as well as a hint about Natasha’s complicated past: a Hawkeye mask!

THE AVENGERS MOVIE IRON MAN MARK VII ARTFX STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! After the amazing success and popularity of the Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America films, Marvel is preparing to unleash the greatest superhero team of all time in just a few short months. Gathering together the main characters of the previous films to defend the Earth from certain destruction, the Avengers will debut in May of 2012 with Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark and his heroic alter ego Iron Man. To commemorate the triumphant new appearance of this iconic character, Kotobukiya is proud to announce the all-new AVENGERS MOVIE IRON MAN MARK VII ARTFX STATUE!

After surviving imprisonment by terrorists, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark created the Mark II armor suit. This was followed up soon after by the iconic Mark III suit used to battle Stane and his Iron Monger suit at the culmination of the first film, and the upgraded Mark IV armor in the sequel. Never one to rest on his laurels, Tony has brought his science and technology to a whole new cutting edge with the Mark VII Iron Man, the most advanced high-tech personal armor suit on the planet. Using new 3D sculpting techniques, Kotobukiya has created the finest and most exciting ARTFX statue of any Iron Man, bringing more fine detailing than previous hand-sculpted releases for a more dynamic display. Tony stands in a classic Iron Man pose, legs planted and arms held back as he fires his chest-mounted beam weapon in a devastating strike. The incredible statue comes equipped with a three-mode LED chest light-up feature: Off, Continuous On, and triggered by the built-in motion detector! Iron Man’s eyes also feature continuous LED lighting in both modes.

Iron Man Mark VII stands nearly 16 inches tall (1/6th scale) on an incredible shattered concrete base that bears the marks of furious battle. This pre-painted, snap-fit ARTFX Statue is easy to assemble so you can have your Iron Man Mark VII on display in no time. Avengers assemble!

Sakuya is resplendent in a unique cerulean blue gown that reflects the new look and costume for Shining Blade. Darker blue and white accents make her look almost like an ice sculpture, except of course where her pale skin peeks through around her thighs, chest, and upper arms. Sakuya’s dynamic pose captures the alluring and graceful girl in mid-step as she holds a long, ornate staff in one hand and a small card in the other. Her brown-eyed face gives you a shy smile and a long arc of hair curves down in a spiral behind her. Sculpted by Keijirou Togita, Sakuya-Mode: Cerulean stands 8 ½ inches tall (1/8th scale) in all of her blue glory atop a specially designed display base that supports her pose.

Commander of the Shinsengumi, ISAMI KONDO’s signature sword lives on in chopstick form, black with hilts of gold and red. The tall Shinsengumi vice-commander and developer of “Shinsengumi-Kenjutsu” TOSHIZOU HIJIKATA wielded a blade with a black and gold design and speckled red and black scabbard that you can use at the dinner table. With a smooth black finish decorated with a unique silver and green design, the next set of chopsticks celebrate the captain of the first unit of the Shinsengumi and master of the “Three Piece Thrust” technique SOUJI OKITA. Finally, for the captain of the group’s third unit and suspected spy special attention was taken to replicate the black and purple design of HAJIME SAITO’s original sword down to the style of the tsuba (hand guard).

You don’t need to be a master of the blade to utilize these fully functional chopsticks and keep your food in line. Despite their katana style, they are designed for daily use and can be used just like any chopsticks. Add a bit of Japanese flavor to your table and enjoy your meal as a member of the Shinsengumi!

SPACE

NASA APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE 1/48-SCALE DIE-CAST MODEL

Imported from Japan! Apollo 11 is perhaps the most famous space mission of all time. This spaceflight put man on the Moon for the first time on July 20, 1969 as millions of TV viewers around the world watched with anticipation. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the two American astronauts to walk on the lunar soil of the southern Sea of Tranquility. They arrived aboard the Lunar Module (LM) that had been christened Eagle in honor of the bald eagle, the national bird of the USA. For the first time, the Lunar Module is being offered in 1/48 scale. This larger scale permits more detail and offers greater scope for it to be set in a lunar diorama scene. Alternatively, the model works extremely well as a stand alone desktop decoration.

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 XXIII DVD

Much like the country that spawned it, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is a melting pot. In every imaginable genre, Joel, Mike and their robot pals Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot have seen the promise of cinema mutilated by mediocrity. Nowhere is this highfalutin' concept more hilariously exemplified than in this 23rd collection of episodes from the beloved cult comedy television series! You want a Western? It’s here, pardner! Space adventure? Look no further. They’ll even throw in a failed TV pilot and a barely coherent science fiction-horror-thriller. All genres are treated with equal disrespect by the luckless crew of the Satellite of Love. They pledge allegiance only to funny, with justice — SoL style — for all. (STK461792) (C: 1-1-4)

In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny — still struggling with his curse as the devil's bounty hunter — is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the Devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy — and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.

THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY

Residing quietly beneath the floorboards are little people who live undetected in a secret world to be discovered, where the smallest may stand tallest of all. From the legendary Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Ponyo) comes The Secret World of Arrietty, an animated adventure based on Mary Norton's acclaimed children's book series "The Borrowers." Arrietty (Bridgit Mendler), a tiny, but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents (Will Arnett & Amy Poehler) in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper (Carol Burnett). Like all little people, Arrietty remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to "borrow" scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shawn (David Henrie), a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty's family from the home and straight into danger. The English language version of The Secret World of Arrietty was executive produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, and directed by Gary Rydstrom. Available in Blu-Ray and DVD formats.
