For more than ten years, pop culture cultists have revered and adored a mysterious, brooding thirteen-year-old girl named Emily the Strange.

Now Emily fans are invited into her odd, mysterious world-a place where kitty friends talk, the ghosts of famous weirdos come out to play, reality is never quite what it seems, and-above all-a place where anyone who's ever been considered a little "strange" themselves will be made to feel right at home. 

Dark Horse Comics and the creative minds behind Cosmic Debris are thrilled to present the second issue of Emily, with all-new stories and art. Each issue of Emily comics features 48 pages of black, white, and red art (with the occasional outburst of full-color freakouts!), illustrating a wacky range of Emily stories.

B-movie megastar Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, and Bubba Ho-Tep fame comes to comics with this adaptation of his upcoming feature film. 

Campbell not only co-wrote the film with David Goodman, but directed and starred in it as well. However, in order to see his vision realized unadulterated by budgetary constraints, Campbell put the version of the script he wanted to shoot into the hands of artists Rick Remender and Hilary Barta. 

Man with the Screaming Brain tells the story of a wealthy American businessman determined to exploit the crippled economy of a former Soviet state torn between communist roots and capitalist greed. But Campbell's character soon finds himself in the grip of a mad scientist with a twisted brain-transplant scheme worthy of Dr. Frankenstein.

On sale November 2, SC, 192pg, b&w & FC, 7" x 10", $19.95

Oh My Goddess! Colors is Dark Horse's English-language edition of a special collection first published in Japan. What's inside? Original publisher Kodansha, working with artist Kosuke Fujishima, produced color versions of four of the best-loved stories from the series, each centering on one of the goddesses. "The Number You Have Dialed Is Incorrect" is the one which started it all, as Belldandy appears when Keiichi reaches The Goddess Technical Help Line. Belldandy's big sister Urd becomes small in "Urd's Fantastic Adventure," and in "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," Skuld, the youngest of the sisters, wobbles through her first romance while learning to ride a bicycle. Finally, "Are You Being Served?" brings in the Fourth Goddess, the vampish Peorth, when Keiichi misdials again to reach Belldandy's rival agency…the Earth Assistance Hotline!

In addition to the four color stories, the Oh My Goddess! Colors collection contains a bonus original manga story by Fujishima fan Yoshitou Asari. And if that doesn't do the trick, Kosuke Fujishima weighs in with an eight-page profile of the Goddesses. Plus, an eighteen-page "Encyclopedia of Goddess Terminology," cross-referencing the people, places, and events of the first twenty-two volumes of OMG!, four pages on the cars, bikes, and planes of the series, the two-page "Rules of the Goddess' World," and a six-page thumbnail guide to the OMG! story chapters. Oh My Goddess! Colors is the ultimate official fan companion to the manga series!
