Attack on Titan Vol. 1

In this post-apocalytpic sci-fi story, humanity has been devastated by the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. Little is known about where they came from or why they are bent on consuming mankind. Seemingly unintelligent, they have roamed the world for years, killing everyone they see. For the past century, what’s left of man has hidden in a giant, three-walled city. People believe their 100-meter-high walls will protect them from the Titans, but the sudden appearance of an immense Titan is about to change everything. Winner of the 2011 Kodansha Manga Award (Shonen) and nominated for the prestigious Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize for 2012.

I have decided to make my short story “Renovation” available as a standalone story once again, with a new cover that I LOVE.

 Jack just wants to spend the day job hunting online and taking care of his young son Max, who’s napping up in his room. Everything is going as well as can be expected when a noise in the house catches Jack’s attention.

It’s just the dryer, he thinks, but then realizes he already finished the laundry. He keeps hearing strange noises, but they’re not coming from any particular room, they seem to be emanating from the house itself. And then he hears something that sounds an awful lot like his name.

What do you do when the thing you’ve designed to keep you safe is the thing that turns against you? “Renovation” is an action-packed story of a monster like you’ve never imagined.

In the backup feature, one from the Icons to Ashes collection, “Birth Day” tells the story of a man who wakes up sore and confused in an alley, only a few feet from a decapitated body. He doesn’t remember his name, he doesn’t know how he got there, but his body feels so strange, and the world around him begins to take on a dreamy quality, almost as if it’s moving in slow motion in comparison to him.

Together, these two stories form the perfect pair, as the characters find how easily life can be turned upside down in a blink, without warning, and from that moment on things can never go back to how they were.

From the writers of the groundbreaking post-apocalyptic series Yesterday’s Gone, comes a dark new fantasy horror series, ForNevermore.

All 17 year old Noella Snow ever wanted was a normal life.

But normal died with her mother, minutes after she was born. Then again when her father was murdered before her eyes on her seventh birthday. Now she spends her days in quiet misery, an outcast at school, harboring a secret crush on her best friend, Sam.

Noella’s only happiness lies in her dreams, in a world where her father still lives and Dante, a mysterious stranger with a deadly touch, guards over her.

Now those dreams have turned to nightmares as Noella begins hearing voices, witnessing murders she can’t possibly know of, and seeing the monsters from her sleep merging into her waking life.

Noella doesn’t want to return to King’s Point, the psychiatric hospital where she was forced to go after an “episode” two years earlier.

She tells herself she’s better.

But then one night Noella sees the impossible… Dante, watching her from afar, as he has for centuries – nearly as long as he’s loved her.

Is Noella losing her mind? Or is she linked to a hidden world, destined to be normal ForNevermore?

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol Vol. 1

Nazis, dinosaurs, and a war for all time!

Fearsome raptors, giant spiders, and a towering Nazi nemesis: the commandos face many foes in the fight for the future. The body count is high – and few will make it back alive!

This collection of the stunning first series is packed with exclusive features – including declassified files, unseen sketches, and blueprints.

My Friend Dahmer

You only think you know this story. In 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer– the most notorious serial killer since Jack the Ripper– seared himself into the American consciousness. To the public, Dahmer was a monster who committed unthinkable atrocities. To Derf Backderf, “Jeff” was a much more complex figure: a high school friend with whom he had shared classrooms, hallways, and car rides. In My Friend Dahmer, a haunting and original graphic novel, writer-artist Backderf creates a surprisingly sympathetic portrait of a disturbed young man struggling against the morbid urges emanating from the deep recesses of his psyche– a shy kid, a teenage alcoholic, and a goofball who never quite fit in with his classmates. With profound insight, what emerges is a Jeffrey Dahmer that few ever really knew, and one readers will never forget.
My daughter, after watching the movie made from this book, went online afterward and ordered the graphic novel.  Said she read it in a couple hours on the porch that day and it was really good, so I’m gonna give it a go.  Click the title to read alone. –CDM.

In a matter of weeks, three African-American police officers have been publicly and brutally murdered in the state of Virginia. The pressure is on law enforcement officials to stop the viciously calculated killer(s) and to do it quickly. An elite, yet experimental F.B.I. unit, formed specifically to investigate high profile crimes, is called in to head the investigation. Under the leadership of Special Agent Gabriel Santana, this F.B.I. team matches its investigators with hardened criminals who are currently incarcerated for having committed crimes similar in nature to the case they are trying to solve. In this particular instance, it means working with a racist-militia leader serving a life sentence, a man that would rather help the murderer(s) than see the killing-spree stop.

25 TO LIFE is like an edgy version of 48 HOURS and reminiscent of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS; a gripping crime drama brought to you by the writing team of Eriq LaSalle and Doug Wagner, and brilliantly illustrated by Tony Shasteen.
25 TO LIFE — Sometimes enforcing the law is CRIMINAL.
