Max the crazy computer makes a welcome return in The Thirteenth Floor by Guy Adams, John Stokes and Frazer Irving; the fangs are out in The Dracula File by Grainne McEntee and Tristan Jones; weirdos, warriors and weasels plucked from the pages of various 70s and 80s British comics congregate in Death-Man: The Gathering by Henry Flint; Kek-W and Simon Coleby collaborate on Black Max, the German World War One fighter pilot that's descended from a race of bat-people; the high-rise horrors of Birdwood are back in Return of the Sentinels by Hannah Berry and Ben Willsher; and fairies can be frightening in Fate of the Fairy Hunter by Alec Worley and DaNi.

All this packed, kicking and screaming, behind a Henry Flint cover - PLUS there's the terrifying variant cover by Glenn Fabry and Adam Brown, available only through comic book stores via Diamond Distribution with code AUG171919!

THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR
by Guy Adams (w) John Stokes, Frazer Irving (a) Simon Bowland (l)
Built in the eighties, Maxwell Tower was then a state-of-the art tower block controlled by a sentient computer called Max. Programmed to serve and protect his residents, Max transports any ‘outsiders’ causing mischief to his horrifying 13th floor- a place where nightmares become reality! Defunct for years, Max is back and ready to dish out punishment!

THE DRACULA FILE
by Grainne McEntee (w) Tristan Jones (a) SG (l)
Chased out of Eastern Europe over three decades ago, The Prince of Darkness, Dracula, escaped to Great Britain and never left! The bloodsucking beast has been stalking the streets of our capital for years. But in that time he has made some very deadly enemies...

DEATH-MAN: THE GATHERING
by Feek (w) Henry Flint (a) SG (l)
He is Death’s reluctant servant — charged with purging the world of the living from those dark forces who do not belong there. His only goal is to succeed so he too can finally rest in peace. Now his services are required by a group of brilliant and bizarre heroes...

BLACK MAX
by Kek-W (w) Simon Coleby (a) Len O'Grady (c) Jim Campbell (l)
Baron Maximilien Von Klorr was a skilled German WWI fighter pilot who struck fear into the Allied Forces as he attacked them with his two giant bats. It has been close to hundred years since the ‘Batmaster’ last plagued the skies, but now he is back, undead and just as dangerous as ever!

RETURN OF THE SENTINELS
by Hannah Berry (w) Ben Willsher (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Two twin blocks of high-rise flats tower over the working-class area of Birdwood. Known by the locals as The Sentinels, one block has remained empty for years. Unbeknownst to most, it hosts a gateway to a terrifying, alternate Earth.

FATE OF THE FAIRY HUNTER
by Alec Worley (w) DaNi (a) Maz Smith (l)
Young Wanda Hannigan has a difficult decision to make - help a powerful fairy to get one over on her horrible boss, or stay loyal to her fellow human being. Patricia Milson may be a grumpy taskmaster, but can you ever truly trust one of the fairy folk?
