DE: TALES HARDCOVER
From the company that introduced American audiences to Brazilian twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá (Daytripper, Pixu) comes a new hardcover edition of Dark Horse's out-of-print De:Tales, a collection of the twins' breakthrough short stories!
After three Eisner Awards and a series of acclaimed projects with writers Joss Whedon (Sugarshock), Gerard Way (The Umbrella Academy), Mike Mignola (B.P.R.D.: 1947), and Matt Fraction (Casanova), Moon and Bá are now among the hottest artists in comics. De:Tales is the duo's most personal work to date, presenting their work separately, together, and in tandem-as the twins trade off on the roles of writing and illustrating, share those roles, or fly solo. Brimming with all the details of human life, their charming tales move from the urban reality of their home in São Paulo to the magical realism of their Latin American background.
Featuring a brand-new cover, Moon and Bá's seminal and sought-after work is finally back in this handsome hardcover packaging, proving once again that they are a talented pair to watch out for.
This special #0 issue carves its story from Robert Rodriguez's upcoming "Grindhouse" flick, Machete! In this introductory issue, which will lead into an all-new series in December, Rodriguez himself, alongside producer Aaron Kaufman, pens the ultimate "Mexploitation" tale of revenge as we see what drew Machete to first pick up the blades...
NEXT GEN WARZ #1 (OF 2)
" A BATTLE OF GIGA PROPORTIONS"
Writer/artist RYAN KINNAIRD (X-Men: Phoenix - Legacy of Fire, PSM) pens a titillating and comedic tale, as the female embodied video game consoles FoxBox630 and ESexy3 battle for supremacy. The greatest conflict for disposable income begins!
