    Cage (2002 2nd Series) 1

    cover by richard corben brian azzarello (W)/richard corben (p) ? THE SCOOP: Brian Azzarello and Richard Corben unlock Cage! ? THE SET-UP: Life on the streets is a high stakes game. There are winners and losers. Those that play by the rules, do so at their own risk, and often pay a price. Who's got their back? There's a man who can set things straight. A specialist. He doesn't come cheap, but if you've got the bank, he's got game. And plenty of it. Some know him as a "Hero for Hire." Some as a "Power Man." For others, he's an urban legend. He's all ? and none ? of the above. His name is Cage. It's time you got to know him. ? THE STORY: Dory Dickens wants justice for her daughter, cut down in her prime in the crossfire of a rapidly escalating gang war. In a sea of corrupt cops and rival gangbangers, there's only one man with the juice to dispense the kind of street justice Dory craves ? and his services don't come cheap. Lucky for Dory, the man called Cage has plenty of reason to play hero in a world where there are none. ? THE CREATORS: The team behind BANNER, writer Brian Azzarello (100 Bullets) and artist Richard Corben (House on the Borderland), unite once again to knock fandom on its collective butt! ? THE EDITOR SPEAKS: "It's gonna have the pacing and rhythm of your favorite blaxploitation flicks from the '70s, only it'll be in a more modern context," Axel Alonso told Wizard. "Part and parcel of that is cussing and big booties, guns and drugs and all the rest." ? THE FORMAT: Each issue of this monthly, five-part mini-series will be 32 pages, with ads. ? THE RATING: Contains explicit content. Recommended for adult readers. FC, 32pg (1 of 5) Cover price $2.99.

    1st (Dark Horse) Edition - 1st printing. By Dave McKean. Dave McKean's Cages is finally back in print! Best known for his collaborations with Neil Gaiman, McKean defied expectations with his stunning debut as writer and artist in Cages, winner of multiple awards for Best Graphic Album. Filled with complex characters, intriguing flights of fancy, and all the beautiful visuals you'd expect from the director of MirrorMask, Cages is McKean's magnum opus. It chronicles the intersecting lives of a painter, a writer, and a musician living in the same apartment building, and is a profound rumination on art, God, cats, and the cages we build for ourselves. Out of print for years, Cages is finally available in an affordable new softcover edition, remastered and newly redesigned, with a brand-new cover by McKean.
