Locke & Key is a comic book series written by Joe Hill, illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez and published by IDW Publishing.

The story goes about three children who find themselves custodians of Keyhouse, a New England mansion filled with "impossible" doors. There's a door that will turn you into a ghost when you walk through it. There's a closet filled with different robes – an African robe, a Chinese robe, Indian furs – and by throwing on these cloaks you can change your race. Most of all, somewhere in the house, there's a door that must never be opened, the black door. Naturally, there's someone who wants to open it, a creature named Dodge, a kind of Peter Pan gone horribly wrong. Someone who takes the Lost Boys of the world and turns them Columbine.

These lost boys, however, aren't all of the male persuasion. The runaway star of the story is six-year-old Bode Locke, who as a rule manages to endanger his own life at least once an hour. Older brother Tyler is the lead character, a lost 18-year old. He's a kid who did one stupid thing that he can never take back. He's a bit of a Ben Grimm type, lonely and sullen but also a charismatic guy's guy. He's quiet. He's probably the least talkative hero Hill has ever written about, which is fun, because when he says something, it has weight.

And in between them is Kinsey, the political conscience of the family. Like a lot of teenage girls, Kinsey is torn between wanting to fit in, and despising the sort of things girls are expected to do to be liked.

Image


The story of the Lockes has been coursing its way through Hill's veins for years and he always new it made more sense as a comic book than a novel. The narrative of Locke & Key is structured in three acts, with each act consisting of two six-issue storylines. Act One's first story arc, Welcome To Lovecraft, was a six-issue limited series published by IDW Publishing. The first issue of Welcome To Lovecraft was released on February 20, 2008 and sold out in a single day, requiring a second printing to be done immediately. The second arc of Act One, entitled Head Games , commenced with the release of the first issue on January 22, 2009. The actual Head Games story was printed in four issues, with a standalone prologue ("Intermission" or "The Joe Ridgeway Story") and a standalone conclusion ("Army Of One").

Act Two of the Locke & Key story consists of two limited, six-issue miniseries; the first storyline of Act Two, Crown of Shadows , began in the fall of 2009. The second storyline, Keys To The Kingdom, began in August 2010.

The first storyline of Act Three was initially announced as Time & Tide, but is now titled Clockworks.

The original publication plan for the issues comprising the second, third, fourth, and fifth story arcs to be released monthly, with the final storyline being produced as an original graphic novel, but these plans have been altered.

    :!: The special standalone issue Locke & Key – Guide to the Known Keys features an expanded Guide to the Known Keys, an all-new Guide to Failed Keys, and a story of summer-night magic, set in Keyhouse's unlikely past.

The Dark Horse Book of...
(From Wikipedia)


Image Image Image Image


The Dark Horse Book of... was the banner title given to a series of four Dark Horse Comics one-shot hardcover comic book horror anthologies edited by Scott Allie and featuring the work of Mike Mignola and others.

Issues:

    The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings (Released here)
      This first volume was published August 27, 2003 and featured Mike Mignola's only new Hellboy story for that year as well as a new Devil's Footprints story, a Victorian ghost story illustrated by Gary Gianni, and an interview with real-life séance medium L.L. Dreller.
      In his introduction editor Scott Allie states that he has loved anthologies for as long as he can remember and that the theme for this anthology came from the Hellboy story about a haunted house contributed by Mike Mignola although he would later expand the remit somewhat to fit the works of Randy Stradler and others.
      Jill Thompson won the 2004 "Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (Interior)" Eisner Award for the story Stray in this collection.

    The Dark Horse Book of Witchcraft (Released here)
      This second volume was published July 7, 2004 and featured a new Hellboy story by Mike Mignola as well as a sequel to Stray by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson story, a classic witch tale by Clark Ashton Smith illustrated by cover artist Gary Gianni, and an interview with Wiccan High Priestess Phyllis Currott.
      In the introduction editor Scott Allie states that he was once again influenced by Mike Mignola in the choice of a theme for this second volume which is inspired by the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Lord Dunsany and Weird Tales (for whom Smith formerly wrote).
      The volume was nominated for the 2004 "Favorite One-Shot" Wizard Fan Award and Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson won the 2005 "Best Short Story" Eisner Award for the story Unfamiliar.

    The Dark Horse Book of the Dead (Released here)
      This third volume was published June 1, 2005 and featured a new Hellboy story by Mike Mignola as well as a story by Goon creator Eric Powell and a classic tale by Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard illustrated by cover artist Gary Gianni.
      In his introduction editor Scott Allie states that this was supposed to be the last book in the series, as he thought he was pushing his luck with three, but greedier minds prevailed and a fourth would follow, which he agreed to because he enjoyed working with the writers and artists involved in the series

    The Dark Horse Book of Monsters (Released here)
      This fourth and final volume was published December 13, 2006 and featured a new Hellboy story by Mike Mignola as well as Kurt Busiek and Keith Giffen's homage to the great creature comics of Jack Kirby and a classic tale of South Seas horror by William Hope Hodgson illustrated by cover artist Gary Gianni.
      The volume was nominated for the 2007 "Favourite Foreign Comic Book or Graphic Novel of the Year" Ledger Award and Jill Thompson won the 2007 "Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (Interior)" Eisner Award in part for the story A Dog and His Boy in this collection.

Thank you, Urojay, for the released. - G

To be or not to be... add-free.

Image


Following popular demand, some of our major comics releasers will offer the choice between downloading regular and add-free comics. Add-free comics are smaller and more easy to read. Now, because adds are mostly intended for promotion, they usually are well-drawn and containing useful information about comics. Meaning, it would be a waste to trash them. That's why well' render available a book - also CBR format - containing nothing but adds that were removed from comics posted on this site. Here it is:

add_collection_V0.1.cbr - 8.9 Mb - ( download - mirror )
add_collection_V0.2.cbr - 13.2 Mb - ( download - mirror )
add_collection_V0.3.cbr - 25.5 Mb - ( download - mirror )

The book will be updated whenever new add-free comics are released on the site. In time we're sure a good soul will make us a nice cover for this book. ;)

Infestation has overtaken several of the universes of IDW's licensed comics properties. From Star Trek to Ghostbusters, from G.I. Joe to Transformers... Zombies have caused a big uproar and with the help of the CVO (Covert Vampiric Operations) these worlds have put up a good fight.

In 2003 Steve Niles Image , creator of the 30 Days of Night Image comic series, launched a series of occult detective stories featuring the monstrously hard-boiled Cal McDonald. A pill-popping alcoholic reprobate, He befriends a network of ghouls to assist him in his cases. Policemen do not really care to be involved with Cal, though he is the only line of defense between Los Angeles and a growing horde of zombies, vampires, possessed muscle cars, mad scientists, werewolves, and much more weirdness!

    Starting in April of 2011, IDW Image created an overall story line called Cobra Civil War Image that encompasses three individual GI Joe comic series. It is the main title and labeled Volume 2 (It is officially marked as Vol #2 on the inside copyright/cover gallery page) or often referred to as Season 2. This series directly follows the previous GI Joe Image and GI Joe: Cobra Image titles and is tied into the current events surrounding the War. Basically, this is the GI Joe's view of the Cobra Civil War.The first issue #0 is a combined issue that tells 10 page stories from all three series and was released in April. This story line is about the Cobra Image organization's attempt to fill the position of Cobra Commander after the previous holder of the position was killed by Chuckles. The title of Cobra Commander is elected and the campaign to win the election is based off which Cobra candidate can cause the most misery to the GI Joe team. The additional series that support this story line is Snake Eyes: Cobra Civil War Image , Which is Snake Eyes' Image individual story that happens within the Civil War.

    IDW and Hasbro present an all-new take on the famed soldiers in G.I. Joe - Future Noir Image, including high-explosive action in anime-influenced “future noir” style!

More about Vic Sage you can find here


The Question came to DC Image in part of a gift purchase of the Charlton "Action Heroes" -- Captain Atom, Nightshade, Blue Beetle, Son of Vulcan, Judomaster, Thunderbolt, Sarge Steel and the Question -- for then-DC editor, former Charlton writer/editor Dick Giordano. The original plan, as detailed in the article, "Project Blockbuster" by Robert Greenberger in Comic Book Artist #09, was for the Charlton characters to feature in short, serialized stories in a monthly series, with the Question's particular stories to be penned by Mike W. Barr and drawn by Stan Woch. This idea soon went bust, with little artwork actually completed.

The Action Heroes made their debut in the DCU as Earth-4, one of many alternate worlds being collapsed into one during the historic Crisis on Infinite Earths in 1986, and many of their fold earned solo books, including Blue Beetle (where the Question made his first post-Crisis story appearance), and the Question himself. All of this, of course, while the seminal Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons maxiseries The Watchmen riffed on a sort of alternate universe version of the Action Heroes.

Dennis O'Neil Image and Denys Cowan's version of The Question Image debuted to jeers from the Ditko audience who cried foul on O'Neil's non-objectivist portrayal of Ditko's creation. O'Neil addressed the issue by having The Question die at the end of the first issue, resurrected in the second and born again as a wholly different character. O'Neil's Charles Victor "Vic Sage Image" Szasz was an orphaned protector of a hellhole -- Hub City -- taught by a zen Kung Fu master, and dealing with a wealth of grotesque characters and villains as Hub toppled like Sodom and Gomorrah around him. The series became known for it's thoughtful handling of real-world issues, an excellent letter column, and, from some, for not being Ditko. The series was published for thirty-six issues, two annuals, and five " Quarterly Image " specials. The series featured detailed and absorbing art by a young African-American named Denys Cowan, who, along with inker Rick Magyar, was twice nominated for the Eisner Award Image for best art team.

After the Question series, and a brief follow-up - The Question Returns Image - Question Quarterly finished their runs, Vic Sage skipped here and there across the DC universe, making appearances in other O'Neil-penned one-shots and cameos in other characters' books. Giordano joined writer/inker Bob Layton (former Charlton Bullseye publisher) for a simple-but-fun six-issue teaming of the Charlton heroes called the L.A.W. Under the helm of writer Greg Rucka, a self-professed fan of the O'Neil series in college, the Question began a relationship with Gotham vigilante The Huntress in a six-part series called Cry For Blood.

Writer Rick Veitch Image and artist Tommy Lee Edwards took a new approach to the Question in their 2004-05 six-issue miniseries Image , turning the Question into a sort of urban shaman who "spoke" to cities through a channel of lifeforce. In the miniseries, the Question comes to Metropolis and has a run in with Superman himself, and it's revealed that, in journalism school, Vic had a huge crush on Lois Lane. The Question currently appears in the series 52, taking place in the year after the lackluster sequel to Crisis, Infinite Crisis.

Scalped is a critically acclaimed ongoing crime/western comic book series written by Jason Aaron Image and illustrated by R. M. Guéra, published monthly by Vertigo Comics Image. Issue #1 was published on January 3, 2007.

The series focuses on the Oglala Lakota inhabitants of the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation in modern-day South Dakota as they grapple with organized crime, rampant poverty and alcoholism, local politics and the preservation of their cultural identity.

Author Jason Aaron has since confirmed that Scalped will end with its 60th issue

Scalped originally began as a prospective relaunch of Scalphunter, an older DC character. As development proceeded, much of the original concept was abandoned in favor of the current plot. Jason Aaron has said the plot of the comic is partly inspired by Leonard Peltier, a Native American activist who was arrested for the murder of two FBI agents in a reservation shootout in 1975

Description:
    Godzilla was once a dinosaur known as Godzillasaurus, who somehow survived the extinction of the dinosaurs. 10 years later after the death of the creature, H-Bomb testing started to increase, and when the H-Bomb hit largos island, the dinosaur mutated into the creature known as Godzilla. Godzilla became far larger, stronger, and more powerful, and then gained a radioactive atomic-ray, the monster was unstoppable. When the oxygen-destroyer killed the original Godzilla, a new Godzilla was born, who was even bigger and stronger, with a more powerful atomic-ray, and thicker skin.

Image


Friends and Foes:
    Godzilla's foes Include his arch-nemesis, King Ghidorah; Mechagodzilla; King Kong, Mothra; Gigan; Space Godzilla; Zilla (also called G.I.N.O, or Godzilla In Name Only.); Avengers; Orga; Titanosaurus; Kumonga; Kamakuras; Baragon; Battra; Destroyah; and Monster-X who, when defeated, transforms into the mighty and powerful Kaiser King Ghidorah.

    His Allies are, his sons Minilla (showa) and Godzilla Junior (Heisei); Mothra; Rodan, Anguirus, King Ceaser and Captain Gordon of the Gotengo! Godzilla has also "fought" Charles Barkley once, in the form of a basketball game, though the two have not since fought.

Mass Effect is an award-winning, bestselling series of science fiction RPG third-person shooter video games developed by the Canadian company BioWare and released for the Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows and, from the second installment, for the PlayStation 3. The first game in the planned trilogy centers around a player created character named Commander Shepard and his/her mission to save the galaxy from a race of mechanical beings known as the Reapers, and its followers, including Saren Arterius.

There are currently five comics in the Mass Effect universe. As the game is considered to be the player's story, none of comics, like the novels, feature Commander Shepard as the main character. The sole exception is Mass Effect: Genesis, which, being interactive, allows the player to control Shepard's decisions.

Comics and Comic Series:


  • Mass Effect: Redemption: ( released here) A four-issue series that serves as a prequel to Mass Effect 2, and is set a few months after the opening events of Mass Effect 2. The plot involves Liara T'Soni, Cerberus, and a mission of the utmost urgency. The first issue was released on January 26, 2010, with the release of Mass Effect 2, and the Mass Effect 2 Limited Collectors' Edition had a special edition of the comic book. Written by Mac Walters, scripted by John Jackson Miller, drawn by Omar Francia, colored by Michael Atiyeh and lettered by Michael Heisler. Cover designs by Daryl Mandryk.
  • Mass Effect: Incursion: ( released here) A short 8 page comic released on June 21, 2010 through IGN. The plot revolves around Aria T'Loak and is set one week before the opening events of Mass Effect 2. Written and scripted by Mac Walters, drawn by Eduardo Francisco, colored by Michael Atiyeh and lettered by Michael Heisler.
  • Mass Effect: Inquisition: ( released here) A short 8-page comic released on October 25, 2010, through USA Today. Taking place after Mass Effect 2, the plot revolves around Captain Bailey and his investigation of Executor Pallin and allegations of corruption within C-Sec.
  • Mass Effect: Genesis: (Not yet released) The "Interactive Backstory Comic" included in the Playstation 3 release of Mass Effect 2.

Grendel is a long-running series of comic books originally created by American author Matt Wagner. First published by Comico, Wagner has now moved his character to Dark Horse. Originally a noir comic in the style of European titles such as Diabolik, it has evolved into, in Wagner's words, a study of the nature of aggression...

Grendel - the early Stories


Devil by the Deed (Released here)
    As a backup story in his other series, Mage (1984–1986), Wagner reworked and retold Hunter Rose's story in its entirety. It was collected by Comico in 1986. A new edition, recolored by Bernie Mireault, was published by Dark Horse in 1993. In 2007, it was released in hardcover colored only in black, white, and red. An experiment in illustrated fiction, the panels combine to form something of a static whole on each page, often likened to a stained glass window. Each page is both one picture and several images, arranged much less sequentially than in typical comic book narrative. All of its text appears in accompanying captions, presented as excerpts from a non-fiction book about Hunter Rose

Grendel - the series


The ongoing Grendel series was published by Comico from 1986 to 1990, with Wagner as writer (and occasionally drawing short story arcs) collaborating with a variety of artists. This series was nominated by the Eisner Awards Image for Best Continuing Series, Best Single Issue (#12), earned Matt Wagner a nomination for Best Writer, and the Pander Brothers & Jay Geldof a nomination for Best Art Team.

Issues 1-12: Devil's Legacy (Released here)
    The first twelve issues, written and colored by Wagner and drawn by Arnold and Jacob Pander, were set in the near future and told the story of Stacy Palumbo's daughter, Christine Spar. When her son, Anson, was kidnapped by a vampire Kabuki dancer called Tujiro XIV, Christine took on the identity of Grendel in her quest to rescue and/or avenge him. As she became more and more consumed by the Grendel identity her actions became more and more violent, and attracted the attention of the police, in particular Captain Wiggins, a chic, flamboyant New York detective with a cybernetic eye that also functioned as a lie detector. Wiggins enlisted the aid of Grendel's old arch-enemy Argent. Eventually Christine and Argent fought, to both of their deaths.

Issues 24-33: God and the Devil (Released here)
    God and the Devil, written by Wagner, drawn by John K. Snyder III and Jay Geldhof and colored by Joe Matt, ran in Grendel #24-33. It was republished as a 10 issue miniseries, recolored by Jeromy Cox, by Dark Horse in 2003. A trade-paper collection of all 10 issues was published in 2008.

Issues 34-40: Devil's Reign (Released here)
    The evil at its heart exposed, the corrupt church collapsed--and much of society with it. A community of vampires, led by Pellon Cross, established itself in the sovereign resort nation of VEGAS. Orion Assante, using his corporate connections and private wealth, gradually restored order with an army and a broadcasting network both called "Orion's Sword"
    Devil's Reign, written by Wagner, drawn by Sale and colored by Mireault, ran in Grendel #34-40, bringing the series to a close. It was republished as a 7 issue miniseries, recolored by Matt Hollingsworth, by Dark Horse in 2004. A trade-paper collection of all seven issues was released in 2008.

Issues 41-50: War Child (Released here)
    As Devil's Reign came to a close, Wagner thought of an idea for a new storyline, which was intended to run as Grendel #41-50, after a brief publishing hiatus. Before that could happen, though, Comico went bankrupt. Finally, after Wagner regained the publishing rights, Grendel: War Child saw print in 1992 as a 10-issue miniseries from Dark Horse, written by Wagner, drawn by Patrick McEown and colored by Mireault. A collected edition was published in 1994.

Batman/Grendel I (Released here)
    A two-part Batman/Grendel crossover, Devil's Riddle and Devil's Masque, was written and drawn by Wagner and colored by Wagner at the time of the Comico series, but was delayed by Comico's bankruptcy. It was eventually published by DC in 1993.[5] Hunter Rose came to Gotham City to carry out an audacious crime and pit his wits against the city's protector, just to see if he could. Grendel returned to New York with a broken arm from Batman. (In the "Devil's Advocate" short, featured in Grendel: Black, White, & Red, Grendel is seen sporting a cast on the same arm.)

Batman/Grendel II
(Released here)
    The second two-part Batman/Grendel crossover, titled Devil's Bones and Devil's Dance, was published in 1996. It tied directly into events from Devil Quest. A museum in Gotham was holding an exhibition of famous murderers, including as its prize exhibit the bones of Hunter Rose. Grendel-Prime's experiment from Devil Quest had thrown him back in time, and he reappeared in the museum, drawn by the "true skull". With the aid of a kidnapped WayneTech engineer he built a device to send him back to his own time, but also to kill thousands in a blood sacrifice intended to contact Hunter Rose's soul. Batman managed to prevent him carrying out the sacrifice before he was hurled back to the future, but not before having his arm broken by Grendel-Prime, mirroring the injury Hunter Rose had suffered at the hands of Batman in the first Batman/Grendel crossover. In this story it is also explained why Hunter Rose's skull has a hole on the forehead (as seen in Four Devils, One Hell).

Black, White and Red & Red, White and Black (Released here)
    Wagner returned to Hunter Rose in 1998 with a four issue miniseries, Grendel: Black, White and Red, featuring short stories drawn by an array of artists. As the title suggests, the stories were drawn in black and white with red spot-color. A second series, Grendel: Red, White and Black, followed in 2002. Some of the artists included D'Israeli, Duncan Fegredo, David Mack, Mike Allred, Teddy Kristiansen, Woodrow Phoenix, Chris Sprouse, Stan Sakai, Jill Thompson, Kelley Jones, Andi Watson, Ashley Wood and Michael Zulli and Stan Shaw.
    The collected versions of these two limited series also contain several short Grendel stories Wagner had published over the years, such as "Devil's Vagary" (a 16 page one-shot from the Comico Collection slipcase), Devil’s Week (from A Decade Of Dark Horse #1, Scared Of The Devil (from Dark Horse Extra #49-50), and "Devil’s Duel" (from Dark Horse Maverick 2001).

Devil Child (Released here)
    In 1999 a two-part series, Grendel: Devil Child, written by Diana Schutz and drawn by Tim Sale, told the harrowing story of Stacy Palumbo and the birth of her daughter, Christine Spar. A hardcover collection of the story was released in June, 2008.

Past Prime (Released here)
    In 2000, Grendel: Past Prime, a novel written by Greg Rucka with illustrations by Wagner, was published, following the adventures of Grendel-Prime and Susan Veraghen after the assassination of Jupiter I.

Devil Quest (Released here)
    Wagner wrote and painted a series of short stories as backups in Grendel Tales, starting in 1994 and collected in 1995. Set 104 years after War Child, it featured the new Khan's attempts to find Grendel-Prime. The cyborg, disillusioned by the decadence of the world, was attempting a bloody experiment/ritual to contact the soul of Hunter Rose. At the conclusion of the experiment he disappeared, only to reappear, badly damaged, some distance away. A hardcover collection of the story was released in June, 2008.

    Final Crisis is a crossover storyline that appeared in comic books published by DC Comics in 2008, primarily the seven-issue miniseries of the same name written by Grant Morrison. Originally DC announced the project as being illustrated solely by J. G. Jones; artists Carlos Pacheco, Marco Rudy and Doug Mahnke later provided art for the series. It directly follows DC Universe #0 after the conclusion of the 51-issue Countdown to Final Crisis weekly limited series. Promotion about the limited series describes its story as "the day evil won". The series deals with alien villain Darkseid's plot to overthrow reality, and the subsequent death and corruption of various DC characters and their universe.

Publication history

    Final Crisis came out of several ideas Grant Morrison had when he returned to DC Comics in 2003. Morrison said, "I pitched a huge crossover event called Hypercrisis, which didn’t happen for various reasons. Some of Hypercrisis went into Seven Soldiers, some went into All-Star Superman, some went into 52 and some of it found a home in Final Crisis." According to Grant Morrison, work finally began on Final Crisis #1 in early 2006, with the intention of the series being a thematic and literal sequel to Seven Soldiers and 52, two projects that Morrison was heavily involved in at the time.
