Russia's western steppes were once a paradise, home to lush farms, thriving villages, and bands of gypsies who had been traveling since the dawn of time. But that was long ago. Paradise has been re-made a wasteland, one ruled over by the ancient swamp god Pripet-the deity Atomika has come to kill. 

Featuring a regular cover by fan favorite artist Michael Turner (Fathom, Soulfire, Superman/Batman), and a variant cover by series inker Buzz (JSA, Vampirella), along with the continuing creative team of writer Andrew Dabb, artists Sal Abbinanti and Buzz, along with color artists Christina Strain and Beth Sotelo!

As Curt Corey accepts his obligation to protect an ancient Egyptian artifact, he inadvertently begins an epic adventure that will decide his destiny and the fate of the planet. Wargod, the avenging son of Osiris, is resurrected and sent to Earth to continue his age-old conflict with the nefarious god Sutekh and protect all of mankind from his impending evil. Wargod is our last hope...can he stop Sutekh and his army of soulless minions?

Created and written by George T. Singley (Mutation, Shocking Gun Tales, Headcase) with artwork by Freddie E. Williams II (Shocking Gun Tales, Chance of a Lifetime, Project EON), Wargod is an epic tale of betrayal, powerlust, and ultimately abolition.

Charlie gets more than he bargained for out of his Mardi Gras in the Big Easy when a Caribbean gangster kidnaps, murders and resurrects him to life as a zombie. Now, Charlie must find his way home in a world where the mystical is not only real, but a dark threat to his day-to-day unlife.

The chase is on but one question remains: How far will Charlie get before The Hunger consumes him or he consumes all those around him? Look for the answers in June from creators Jose Torres and Chris DiBari.
