shadowline saga

SHADOWLINE TITLES: In the late 80’s, Epic Comics ran a series of titles such as Doctor Zero, St George and Powerline, which went under the title of Shadowline Saga. Some of the characters who appeared in these books seem to be making a comeback within the mainstream Marvel universe next year, which inevitably led James to take a walk down memory lane.

crossed100#1

CROSSED PLUS 100 #1 (AVATAR): MOST COVERS @ £2.00 PRE-ORDER (SAVE £1.30)

Writer: Alan Moore    Artist: Gabriele Andrade

Alan Moore returns to monthly comics in epic fashion with Crossed +100! Set 100 years in the future, Moore has created a whole new world and history with a stunning attention to detail. Examining how civilizations rebuild and how generations grow, Moore weaves a rich tapestry of humanity evolving under extreme hardship, all of which is lushly rendered by Gabriel (Ferals) Andrade. Archivist Future Taylor leads a salvage team working to rebuild the historical record of the original Crossed outbreak. She’s seen them in videos, but never any live ones, the Crossed are part of the distant past. Until suddenly, a handful appear, and the blood begins to flow. All is not as it seems as a horrific mystery unfolds and once again Alan Moore redefines the medium.

This masterwork is a self-contained whole new world, no prior knowledge of the Crossed series is needed.

All the covers for the series have been planned out by Alan Moore, with the images enriching and expanding on the series. Clues and glimpses of what came before, and what might be, are found throughout the variant covers.

American History X Wraparound – Each of these will depict a specific time in the past hundred years, showing how things have changed and offering a peek at some key events. Each cover will display the year in which it takes place to help build the full picture.

Crossed Culture – These are all images of how the Crossed have changed the way they live. With few humans left to hunt, and the animal kingdom thriving with predators, even the thrill-driven Crossed have had to make adjustments to their lifestyle.

Future Tense – Each cover is an homage to a famous work of science fiction, and each of those original works ties into themes of this issue.

New World Order Wraparound – These are not for the faint of heart or delicate of constitution. We can’t even picture them in this catalog, they are visions of what an ideal all-Crossed world would be. If the madmen have their dreams come true, what would the everyday life look like? These covers are brutally intense images of true horror and may have scenes of torture, depravity, and nudity. These are clearly for adults only. Each copy of this edition will ship in a sealed polybag with a protective slip cover over the actual image to assure it can be racked in stores. The graphic pictured here is the slip cover only. Due to all these special protective measures this edition is strictly limited to initial orders.

Also available with a rare Black Leather cover, and Retailer Incentive covers of Red Crossed and Design Sketch, showing the original works of series artist Gabriel Andrade. Don’t miss out on the ultra-rare CGC Numbered Edition as well!
