LIFE ON THE INSIDE JUST GOT TOUGHER! Longbarrow Maximum Security prison has been many things over the centuries – a Roman fort, a Victorian asylum, and now the site of a gateway to another world. David Sorrell has been imprisoned for the murder of his wife and her lover, sentenced to twenty years in one of the country’s most forbidding jails. But when a strange infection starts warping the inmates into hideous creatures, life behind bars suddenly becomes a desperate struggle for survival! Written by Ian Edginton (Scarlet Traces) with art by Simon Davis, Stone Island is modern horror at its bloody best!
AMPNEY CRUCIS INVESTIGATES
Defending England’s green and pleasant land against bally abominations from beyond the void! England, 1928. Lord Ampney Crucis was a dashing, smart and charming young man, tipped to rise to the top of high society. But then the Great War happened, and a close encounter with an otherworldly entity in no man’s land drove Crucis temporarily insane. Upon recovery, he discovered that he had the ability to sense the presence of entities that exist beyond our reality. Now Ampney, aided by his loyal butler Eddie Cromwell, investigates the rum goings-on that have begun to plague our green and pleasant land… Written by champion raconteur Ian Edginton (Victorian Undead, Stickleback), with art by that jolly talented fellow Simon Davis (Stone Island, Judge Dredd), this first collection of Ampney Crucis’ supernatural adventures belongs in any gentleman’s comic collection.
SLÁINE: THE BRUTANIA CHRONICLES
Painted entirely by Davis, The Brutania Chronicles are a brand-new chapter in the life of Sláine and the perfect jumping on point for new readers as writer Pat Mills (Marshal Law) transports the Celtic warrior to the ancient world of Albion! Crossing over onto the isle of Monadh, Sláine attempts to rescue fellow warrior Sinead from the evil clutches of the Drune Lords.
