    (W) Douglas Barre (A/C) Jiro FC32pp$2.95Ongoing Monthly series. The Concept: What if everything that anyone ever believed was true? The world is on the cusp of the twentieth century... but before it can embrace the future, it's got to deal with its mythic past... a past that is inexplicably returning to life. Standing between legend and science is the Society for Cryptozoological Research: a wastrel of a lord, an inventor knight, a retired army colonel, a stage prestidigitator and a woman with the audacity to wear trousers. Together, they're the only hope of discovering the truth... if they don't run afoul of resurrected gods, the government of the British Empire and their own sordid pasts first! This Issue: After a heated battle with a Finnish troll yields clues to the location of the fabled Labyrinth of Crete, the Mythstalkers set out to hunt the Minotaur. Unfortunately, the mysterious Ministry of Objective Sciences is determined to stop them from leaving the country... by any means available to the Crown! Don't give away the secret ending!

    (W) Douglas Barré (A) Jiro (Cover) Jiro FC32pp$2.95Ongoing Monthly series In stores the week of April 2nd. The Concept: The myths are coming back. Trolls and faeries, giants and dragons, monsters and gods are no longer merely the stuff of legend. It's 1894, and in the dark corners and shadows of the world the myths are alive once more. The only hope to discover the truth is the Society for Cryptozoological Research, an explorers club dedicated to investigating and understanding the reappearance of creatures that " Should Not Be". Three things stand in their way: ancient gods with a sinister agenda, the mysterious disappearance of the last Society... and the British Empire. This Issue: The Mythstalkers' journey to the Labyrinth at Crete takes an unfortunate turn as they encounter the ghost pirates known as The Cheated. Of course, that's not nearly as bad as being shipwrecked on the island of the legendary Cyclops. Back in England things aren't much better. The time traveler, Coble, tightens his grip on London, and British mobsters, Batson and Quill, meet their new boss... the faerie witch, Valende. Confused? You won't be... if you read this issue of Mythstalkers! Cover price $2.95.

Now he leads the Society, tracking down the mythical creatures that are mysteriously returning to existence, while evading the government ministry conspiring to stop them.

    (W) Douglass Barré (A) Jiro (Cover) Jiro FC32pp$2.95Ongoing monthly series In stores the week of June 4th There are two things you need to know about the man named Mister Coble. First, he's the head of the British Ministry of Objective Sciences, the branch of the Empire's government that deals with so-called "supernatural" or "spiritual" matters... and by "deal with," we mean "terminate." Second, he's actually traveled back to 1893 from the year 2006 for one reason alone: to stop the Mythstalkers. This Issue: The Labyrinth, Part Four of Four?"What Your People Call Labyrinth, My People Call Maze" In the Labyrinth of Crete, the Mythstalkers found far more Minotaur than they expected... and the only one left conscious is the retired army Colonel, Augustus Durant. How can one old man defeat a trio of man-killers? And assuming he does, there's still the matter of getting a live Minotaur back to London. That's London... where Mister Coble waits for their return. Cover price $2.95.

    Mythstalkers (2003) 5

    Written by Douglass Barre. Art and Cover by Jiro. In 1893, a band of five adventurers gathered together to track down mythological creatures and discover the truth behind their reappearance. But...they ran afoul of Britain's Ministry of Objective Sciences and its leader, the time traveler Mister Coble, made a pact with the captain of a ghost ship of pirates, succumbed to a strange transforming curse, were shipwrecked on a Cyclops-infested island, and had to sneak back into England disguised as drunk sailors. And they're just getting started. In this issue: After the tragic events of the Minotaur Expedition, the Mythstalkers regroup and recover back in London. Unfortunately, they didn't reckon with the faerie princess Valende and her sudden control of London's criminal underworld. That's the bad news. The good news is that the Mythstalkers' arch-nemesis, Mister Coble, didn't either. Now the two enemies are both targeted by an organization both sinister and supernatural that threatens to overrun London...and it's all being made possible by one of the Mythstalkers themselves! 32 pages, full color. Cover price $2.95.
