The third volume of THE BEAUTY is a prequel to the first volume, and I have to say I really loved getting to know characters before the glam hit the fan. In the early days, no one knew how deadly the Beauty could get… except for the psycho who is targeting the newly beautiful.

If you were one sexual encounter away from being permanently beautiful, would you do it? In Image Comics’ THE BEAUTY, physical perfection is a sexually transmitted disease and a lot of people have taken the plunge. Despite the constant low-level fever all the infected have, there’s no harm in it, is there?
BITCH PLANET: PRESIDENT BITCH takes place in a future where outspoken women are forced to wear red overalls emblazoned with NC for Non-Compliant, and the “worst” of them are sent to an off-world prison. This graphic novel pulls no punches, dealing with issues like rape, equal rights and the treatment of prisoners.
MONSTRESS is a dark, dark breed of fantasy, where the magic and monsters in the world are more likely to prey upon children’s bones than protect them. Wade into the horror and cruelty, plunge into this war, and even the hope hidden within carries betrayal and sadness.
The best part of MYTHIC, VOLUME 1 was the prologue; the rest of the book didn’t quite keep up with the action and tone. Still, it had some bright moments where it twisted mythology and religion into new and surprising shapes.
In a world where scientists can refuse to die (and turn into ghosts because they don’t believe in anything enough to move on) and demons can possess peaceful rock creatures, it’s a good thing Mythic is there there to police things.
