Showcase Presents Unknown Soldier Vol. 2
The Unknown Soldier's mission deep behind enemy lines continues in these stories from STAR SPANGLED WAR STORIES #189-204 and UNKNOWN SOLDIER #205-226.


Steve Canyon Volume 5: 1955-1956
Milton Caniff's square-jawed hero is back in the Orient and crossing paths with old friends and new enemies. Doe Redwood and the Hall family reappear on the scene, as does another young friend who is working hard to grow up. There are also more hearts and flowers in store within the tangled web that ensnares Steve, Summer Olson, and Copper Calhoon, while Happy Easter returns stateside but ends up having a Gay old time on the Savannah. As 1956 races to a conclusion, a new member of the Canyon clan steps on-stage-get ready to meet Cousin Poteet!


Tom Sutton's Creepy Things
Get ready for a mind-bending walk on the weird side with the very best of Tom Sutton's 1970s horror tales for Charlton Comics! Sutton was at his most expressionistic and experimental with the scores of stories he drew for Charlton's "ghost" line, whose titles said it all: Creepy Things, Ghostly Tales, The Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves, and more. A full sixteen stories, unpublished art, and more than a dozen of his creepy-crawly covers are faithfully reproduced from rare original artwork!  Edited by Michael Ambrose, editor of the insightful Charlton Spotlight magazine, who provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes introduction profusely illustrated with rare art and photos. Dementedly designed by Donnie "Lum and Abner" Pitchford.


Spawn of Mars and Other Stories
The science fiction genre owes a debt, especially visually, to EC Comics, and this highly anticipated Wallace Wood collection shows why. It features over two dozen comics stories drawn in Wood's meticulously detailed brushwork (his "lived in" spaceship interiors helped inspire Star Wars' Millennium Falcon). And with titles like “Spawn of Mars,” “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “A Trip to a Star,” “The Invaders,” “The Secret of Saturn’s Ring,” and “The Two-Century Journey,” how can you go wrong? Like every book in the Fantagraphics EC line, Spawn of Mars and Other Stories features essays and notes by EC experts on these superbly crafted, classic comic book masterpieces. Black & white
