It's the Fourth of July, the first holiday post-plague, but none of the survivors are celebrating. While Nick Andros hovers between life and death--and between the influence of Randall Flagg and Mother Abigail--Larry Underwood makes a shocking discovery in his tent... And Stu Redmond's path intersects with Harold and Frannie's, but immediately a conflict (that will have enormous ramifications for all our players) immediately erupts among the three. The second mini-series adapting Stephen King's horror epic ends here, True Believers, setting stage for Volume Three: "SOUL SURVIVORS."
32 PGS./Cardstock Cover/Parental Advisory...$3.99

Exceptional cover for the House of M mini. The HOM Avengers mini you did with Mister Gage is one of the great arcs of all-time (yeah, I know, very limited perspective, but I was mostly a Marvel guy from the 80's on). I know you are completely wrapped up with stemming the tide of the Super Flu and those who would wreak havoc on our land, but another mini with Mister Gage would be an amazing adventure--especially with Avengers inclusion. Though, a Gage/Perkins arc of Guardians or Inhumans would be quite fantastic!
Have a great weekend.

And the "Stark Roxxon" is a very nice touch.
