Wolverine #66-72, Wolverine Giant-Size Old Man Logan
Mutants, those born with strange powers, through genetic mutation, are not only hated and feared, but brutally murdered in the streets by U.S. sanctioned killing machines. Driven by a dream of peace, Professor X gathers his mutant soldiers, his X-Men, to try and bring sanity to an insane world. But can he forge his band of misfits into a strike force capable of defending the Earth from the evil Magneto and his Brotherhood and even from the very humans they seek to protect.
science fiction and geek culture. Mixing fiction, interviews and
essays, its subject is nothing less than the future. Each issue of Adventure Rocketship! will explore a specific theme, with the first issue — Let’s All Go To The Science Fiction Disco
— focusing on the intersection between music, SF and the
counterculture. That means, among other subjects, we’ll be looking at
how JG Ballard invented post-punk music (sort of – ), the curious and
enduring appeal of Rush’s magnum concept opus 2112, the strange vistas
of cities daubed with tomorrow’s digital street art and David Bowie, the
alien connection…We’ll be talking to writer and sometime musician
Michael Moorcock, three-times Clarke Award winner China Mieville, and
counterculture troublemaker and SF novelist Mick Farren. Essayists
include David Quantick (Radio 2′s The Blaggers Guide), BSFA Award winner
Jon Courtenay Grimwood, and comics writer Rob Williams (Marvel,
2000AD). We’ll have new stories from World Fantasy Award winner Lavie
Tidhar, Liz Williams, Martin Millar and Tim Maughan. Retro-themed jacket
art is by Stanley Donwood, famous for his covers for Radiohead. In
forthcoming issues, Adventure Rocketship! will range across
subjects as diverse as sex, dissent and something called denimpunk,
whatever that might be. Adventure Rocketship! will initially be
available in a limited-edition print run and as an ebook. It will be
promoted with special author events. Adventure Rocketship! is edited by Jonathan Wright, a journalist who has contributed to SFX magazine, the UK’s largest-circulation science fiction magazine, for more than a decade.
Presented for the first time with stark, stunning new coloring by Brian Bolland, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE is Alan Moore's unforgettable meditation on the razor-thin line between sanity and insanity, heroism and villainy, comedy and tragedy.
According to the grinning engine of madness and mayhem known as the Joker, that's all that separates the sane from the psychotic. Freed once again from the confines of Arkham Asylum, he's out to prove his deranged point. And he's going to use Gotham City's top cop, Commissioner Jim Gordon, and the Commissioner’s brilliant and beautiful daughter Barbara to do it.
