Richard “Junk” Junkin has always lived on the wrong side of trouble. A former pro football star whose career was cut short by injury (and a nasty gambling problem), Junk now spends his time dreaming of what might have been, selling cars in Jersey and lusting after the
boss’s unbelievably spoiled, unbelievably sexy and unbelievably rich daughter, Victoria. So when the boss asks him to be Victoria’s personal bodyguard while she tears up the New York City club scene, Junk leaps at the chance. But before long, he’s finds that Victoria wants a lapdog and not a chaperone, someone who’s going to do all of her dirty work—all of it—someone who wants to get filthy rich…
From Brian Azzarello, the multiple Eisner Award-winning writer of Vertigo’s long-running crime series 100 BULLETS and the smash-hit graphic novel, JOKER, and artist Victor Santos, the creator/writer/artist of the hit French series Young Ronin.

“Rankin’s work is crime fiction at its most consuming, cerebral best.” – The New Yorker

“The best living British crime writer.” – Lee Child, bestselling author

“One of Britain’s leading novelists in any genre.” – New Statesman

Occult detective John Constantine has seen his share of strange things in his career, but nothing could prepare him for the horrors of…reality television. “Haunted Mansion” is currently the hottest show on tv, but when the macabre house actually starts attacking the contestants, Constantine is hired to be the ultimate mole. Locked inside with a cast of wannabe-celebrities, his every move being monitored by a deadly figure from his past, Constantine must figure out who (or what) is pulling the strings before he gets cancelled—permanently.
DARK ENTRIES is a classic locked-room mystery starring HELLBLAZER’s John Constantine from Ian Rankin, the #1 international best-selling crime writer best known for his “Inspector Rebus” novels. Rankin has won numerous awards, including the Edgar Award in 2004 and is joined in this graphic novel by Italian artist Werther Dell’Edera, the illustrator of a number of American comics – mostly notably Vertigo’s LOVELESS.

Azzarello poses as many questions as he answers, an M.O. that keeps the book twisting and turning on its way to its 100th issue finale. And with Risso’s always emotional, brutal art, crime hasn’t looked this good in a long time.” – Wizard Magazine

“[100 BULLETS] has the manic mayhem of Quentin Tarantino and hard-boiled simmer of Lew Archer to it when the bodies start falling, but behind it all there are also mysterious shadow forces at work, secret cabals that are moving peopl0.e across chess boards that can’t even be seen except from the tallest citadels of power. High-caliber entertainment.” – LA Times

Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s award-winning crime saga 100 BULLETS reaches its epic conclusion in this final volume collecting issues #89-100. Learn the last dark secrets of The Trust and The Minutemen’s place in the world as secrets are revealed about what really caused Graves’ war with The Trust.

“The Great Fables Crossover” part 7 of 9! Jack Horner, meet Jack Frost. But wait a minute! Didn’t we already establish that Jack Horner was Jack Frost? Concerning the nature of his craft, Tom Clancy once opined that the « difference between fiction and reality is that fiction has to make sense. » If this is so, how do we explain Jack being put in charge of the Farm and all of Fablekind? How do we explain Jack being allowed to babysit Bigby and Snow’s cubs? How does that make sense? We here at Fables headquarters can only come to one conclusion: as impossible as it may seem, Fables isn’t fiction, it’s real.
