“Great art, great characterization and a unique enough twist
on the millennia-old notion of a character who can seemingly perform miracles.” —Comic Book Resources

SAVIOR by Todd McFarlane—one of the biggest names in comics—teams up with co-writer Brian Holguin (SPAWN,
Mr. Majestic) and artist Clayton Crain (X-Force) for the new series SAVIOR, which launched to critical acclaim and fan enthusiasm. Comic Book Resources said of the new series, “McFarlane and Holguin introduce an intriguing central character as well as some interesting supporting ones.” This series is sure to be a new favorite for McFarlane fans and new readers alike.
In SAVIOR, a tragic airplane crash has killed hundreds. Why? And because of the massive catastrophe, a small town braces itself for the onslaught of news media invading their city. But the biggest mystery may be the man who randomly walked out of the corn fields following the crash. Who is he? Where did he come from? And why can’t he remember if he was a passenger on that fatal plane? But this much is clear—this individual possesses certain powers, abilities that harken from the Old Testament... Could he possibly be this corrupted world's SAVIOR in the flesh? Or will he be the world's undoing?
Praise for SAVIOR:
“Clayton Crain absolutely nails the ending of Savior #1 with a scene that made me feel like I was there. It's a powerful finale that shows just how the savior comes to be, while at the same time leaves unanswered questions in the minds of the reader. Savior left me guessing and it's supposed to.” —Comic Spectrum
“The art is pretty great. Did I mention that this is a gorgeous book?There are two things that really sell this story… The first is clearly the art, which should be easily discernible the second you open the book. The second part is that this is a story McFarlane and Holguin appear to be crafting carefully, which is something I can appreciate.” —Rhymes with Geek
“Everything just came together for this first issue. We get bits and pieces but nothing is forgotten. Savior has some great art and with some great plot building. I think Savior is here to stay and can't wait for you guys to pick it up.” —Comic Bastards
SAVIOR #2 hits shelves on May 13 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code MAR150592.

Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets—an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.
Written by Jensen’s own son, acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story presents the ultimate insider’s account of America’s most prolific serial killer.
Sure to appeal to fans of True Detective, Green River Killer features a story by Tomorrowland writer Jeff Jensen and gorgeous art by Jonathan Case and is priced at an affordable $19.99. Preorder today from, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, or your local comic shop.

Players enter the dungeon as one of eight epic characters, such as the Ragebarian, Prestidigimancer, or Paladude, each bestowed with an appropriately amazing ability. Over the course of play, players have to outmaneuver each other while battling ferocious beasts and avoiding enticing traps, all in the hope of emerging from the tower with the biggest haul and most spectacular trophies.
