Their search for answers triggering the vessel’s deadly security system, awakening a relentless android bent on their destruction.

Shaolin Cowboy
Five years after it’s initial run ended, Geof Darrow’s (Hard Boiled, Big Guy and Rusty) returns in 2012!

Originally published by Burlyman Entertainment, Shaolin Cowboy is a loaf of wry in a wonder bread world, a nicotine patch in a ten pack-a-day universe. He wonders as he wanders through a world where yesterday, today and tomorrow exist in a collage of carnage of his own making! Shaolin Cowboy returns with all-new stories in 2012!

King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword
Conan the Cimmerian writer Tim Truman and artist Tomás Giorello return for another triumphant run. King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword will surely be a crowd pleaser!

First hailing Conan as a liberator after he annihilated Aquilonia’s foes on the battlefield, common folk and politicians alike now rally to unseat the Cimmerian from his stolen throne. Conspirators plot to kill King Conan and take the crown for themselves, but their schemes pale in comparison to a terror waiting quietly in the wings – an enemy who has haunted Conan his whole adult life and whose wicked aspirations dwarf those of maneuvering politicians! It’s the return of Thoth-Amon!

King Conan: The Phoenix on the Sword #1 is on sale January 25, 2012!
