Publication Date: December 15, 2010
Format: FC, 48 pages
Price: $3.50

Five--hundred years after the end of the world, amid the ruins of a once--great city scourged by mutated monsters, marauders, and savage subhuman predators, the primitive N'Yark tribe ekes out a meager, fragile existence. But from among them rises a champion, gifted with prodigious strength--a warrior who can strike dead the most fearsome beast and stand alone against an army. Singlehandedly, he holds at bay the ravaging barbarian hordes of Jerz, thwarting the dark ambitions of beautiful, ruthless Queen Terra. At stake is the future of the world. Mighty Samson is the last, best hope of humankind.

For the first time in a quarter century, Mighty Samson returns to comics, reimagined by legendary writer Jim Shooter and illustrated by Patrick Olliffe (Untold Tales of Spider--Man, Spider--Girl, 52).

* This bonus--sized first issue includes the very first Mighty Samson story from 1964!

When a mysterious book of powerful spells binds itself to him, the fact that Rob's life has been falling apart doesn't seem like such a big deal.

To survive, Rob must learn to control the book's unpredictable magic, while his life slips even further out of control.

* Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash) brings his rare mix of humor, horror, and heroes to the latest creation from company founder Mike Richardson.

Darth Krayt has returned from the "dead," stronger, more evil, and more determined than ever to crush the galaxy under his heel. With Emperor Roan Fel's Imperials, the Galactic Alliance, the Jedi, and even some of his own Sith followers arrayed against him, Krayt would seem overmatched--but his enemies have not reckoned with the power of the dark side!

If Cade Skywalker was ever going to run from his legacy, now would be the time!
