AD&D Resurrected

Another new item for April is Dungeons & Dragons Classics, Vol. 1, returning the classic DC Comics Advanced Dungeons & Dragons series to print for the first time!

An ancient evil rises and once again threatens the Realms, and only a motley band of adventures can stop it. A surly dwarf warrior and his benevolent centaur companion, a gladiator who survived the arena, a fallen paladin, and a timid half-elf must somehow find a way to work together if the Realms are going to survive the coming darkness.

This action-packed volume collects the first eight issues of the fan-favorite series by writers Michael Fleisher, Dan Mishkin, and artist Jan Duursema. With an all-new cover by Duursema, colored by Joana Lafuente, of IDW's Transformers.

Printed from the original film, this full-color 200+ page trade paperback will retail for $19.99.

Once Upon a Time Lord...

April solicits have hit the Internet, including our new Doctor Who four-issue miniseries by writer Matt Sturges and artist Kelly Yates entitled Doctor Who: A Fairytale Life.

What’s better: an ugly reality or beautiful fantasy? This is the question the Doctor is forced to confront in a medieval fantasy world where Amy finds herself reluctantly cast as a damsel in distress.
Matt Sturges, Eisner Award-nominated writer of Jack of Fables, spins this yarn, featuring covers by Mark Buckingham of Miracleman and Fables fame. Also, ask your retailer how to get the rare cover by Amy Mebberson (Monsters Inc. and The Muppet Show)!
