    Nightjar (2004) 1A
    Published Mar 2004 by Avatar.

    By Antony Johnston and Max Fiumara. Alan Moore and Bryan Talbot rocked fandom by revealing Nightjar, their creation from 23 years ago, in the pages of Yuggoth Cultures #1. Now the story Alan Moore outlined is continuing on from where he left it two decades ago, this time by his frequent collaborator, writer Antony Johnston. This is the first series of the continuing saga of Mirrigan Demdyke, all based on Moore's original notes. Eighteen years ago, Mirrigan watched her father's heart explode in their backyard. That was fair, because Mirrigan's father was Emperor of All the Birds, the most powerful sorcerer in Britain, and that was how they arrange their successions. But on her deathbed, Mirrigan's grandmother reveals a secret... her father wasn't killed by one sorcerer, but seven, and charges Mirrigan with an oath to make them pay for their treachery! If you're the latest in a line of powerful British sorcerers, avenging your father's death should be a walk in the park. Except when his murderers are even more powerful than you. Now the Seven Birds have a new target... Mirrigan! MATURE READERS. FC, 32pg (1 of 4) $3.50. Cover price $3.50.

    Volume 3 - 1st printing. "US Armored Divisions!" By Steven J Zaloga. The armored divisions were the shock force of the US Army's combat formations during the fighting in Northwest Europe in the final year of the war. Of the 16 such divisions formed during the war, all but one served in the European Theater of Operations. This book examines the organizational structure, operational doctrine and combat mission of these divisions from D-Day onwards, describing how doctrines and tactics were changed as the divisions were forced to adapt to the battlefield realities of combat against an experienced foe. The lessons drawn by the armored divisions from the bitter fighting in Northwest Europe from 1944 to 1945 strongly shaped postwar US Army doctrine. Softcover, 96 pages, PC/PB&W Cover price $25.95.

    Volume 102 - 1st printing. "Santa Anna's Mexican Army 1821-48!" Written by René Chartrand. Art by Bill Younghusband. Detailed information on the Mexican Army which fought the Texans in the 1830s, and the US Army in its first important foreign war ten years later, is notoriously elusive. In this ground-breaking book an internationally respected military historian presents a mass of new information from Mexican archives and a variety of other contemporary sources. For the first time the armies of the notorious General Santa Anna are explained coherently for the English-speaking reader, and their frequently changing and unevenly issued uniforms are illustrated with early prints, portraits, photos of rare surviving items, and meticulous colour reconstructions. Softcover, 64 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $18.95.

    Osprey Elite Series SC (1984-2008 OSPREY) 104-1ST

    Volume 104 - 1st printing. "Britain's Air Defences 1939-45!" Written by Alfred Price. Art by Darko Pavlovic. German daylight raids on Britain began in the summer of 1940. They were expected and the country had been preparing for quite some time. Searchlights were in place, Fighter Command had been expanded, and anti-aircraft guns were being manufactured. It was from these first preparations that Britain developed tactics to counter the many air raids over the following years. This book shows how Britain prepared for air raids in the run up to the war and details all the tactics that were developed during the war to counter the many aerial attacks. Among the defence systems covered are anti-aircraft guns, barrage balloons and the RADAR system. Softcover, 64 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $18.95.

    Osprey Fortress Series SC (2003) 18-1ST

    Volume 18 - 1st printing. "Norman Stone Castles Part 2!" Written by Christopher Gravett. Art by Adam Hook. Following the creation of the Duchy of Normandy, the Normans were soon introduced to the castle and they built them in large numbers. In the mid-11th century, other Norman adventurers began carving out dominions for themselves in Southern Italy: some crossed to Sicily in 1061 and by 1091 had conquered the whole island. As in Normandy, they were keen to assimilate new ideas, including architectural styles, resulting in some striking buildings. This title, a companion to Fortress 13: Norman Stone Castles (1) The British Isles 1066-1216, provides a detailed guide to the castles built in Normandy, Southern Italy and Sicily, covering defensive principles, daily life, the events of siege warfare, and the fate of the castles.

    Volume 404 - 1st printing. "The Waffen-SS (2)!" Written by Gordon Williamson. Art by Stephen Andrew. The military branch of the Nazi SS security organisation grew by the end of World War II from a handful of poorly regarded infantry battalions in 1939, into a force of more than 30 divisions including units of every type. Their battlefield reputation varied widely, from the premier armoured divisions which formed Germany's utterly reliable spearheads on both main fronts, to low quality 'anti-partisan' units. The divisions covered in this second of four titles include the first mountain and cavalry units, and two of the remarkable new Panzer divisions raised in the great 1943 expansion. Illustrated with rare photographs from private collections, the text details their organisation, uniforms and insignia, and summarises their battle record. Softcover, PC/PB&W.

In 1914 the artillery of Britain's 'Field Army' encompassed those weapons judged to have sufficient mobility to keep up with troops in the field. This book describes all major variants, from the 60-pdr guns of the heavy field batteries, perched somewhat uncomfortably on the cusp between field artillery and siege artillery, to the 2.75in. guns of the mountain batteries, almost toy-like in comparison. Between these two extremes lay the bulk of the artillery of the Field Army: the 13-pdr guns of the Royal Horse Artillery, and the 18-pdr guns and 4.5in. howitzers of the Royal Field Artillery batteries.

    Volume 96 - 1st printing. "Spanish Galleon 1530-1690!" Written by Angus Konstam. Art by Tony Bryan. During the middle decade of the 16th century a new type of sailing vessel emerged, designed to carry the wealth of the Americas to Spain. This was the galleon, and over the next century these vessels would serve Spain well as treasure ships and warships, becoming a symbol of Spanish power and wealth during the period. The development and construction of the Spanish galleon are discussed in this book, and the ordnance and crewing needed to produce and maintain these stately vessels is covered. The author also examines the role of the galleon as a treasure ship, and describes how these ships were manned and fought in action. Softcover, 48 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $17.95.
