Coming in January is Roadkill du Jour, the complete 4-issue series in a brand new Collector Box and under all new covers by Jonathan Grimm! 

Witness the awful plight of a devastated biker afflicted with the curse to eat only that which dies on the road…and to then assume the traits of the very creature which he consumed. This biker, duJour, longs to recover the soul of his lost wife and gain vengeance against the voodoo witch who hexed him and murdered his gang. In this last chapter, the end of the road looms for duJour and the ragged remains of the Roadkill Motorcycle Club, as they finally confront Mama Houdoo in their quest for vengeance against her! But, first, secrets revealed may consume them all...

Roadkill du Jour is a full-length graphic novel crafted by writer Kevin LaPorte (Vicious Circus; Scissor Sisters; The AbsenteeLast Ride of the 4 Horsemen), artist Shawn Harbin, and colorists Laura Guzzo (Action Labs’ PrinceLess) and Yuan Cakra.

And, in frozen heart of February comes The Black Hand, another complete 4-issue series inside an amazing Collector Box.

A childhood brush with death left Victoria Addair with a blackened hand that has the power to slay the undead with a touch. Drafted into the Order of the Black Hand, Victoria is sent to an old mining town to slay a ghost–the Grey Boy–who haunts the mountainside. Soon Victoria learns that all is not as it appears and the secrets of the Grey Boy’s origin could save – or doom – them all!
