BUCK ROGERS #0

Scott Beatty (W) Carlos Rafael (A) Join us as we present comicdom's first hero -- Buck Rogers... the first man out of time... the first man to be taken out of his present environment and put into the future!

Under a John Cassaday cover (Cassaday serves as series cover artist), writer SCott (Batman) Beatty and artist Carlos Rafael present an original 12 page comic book adventure - 'The Death of Buck Rogers'! This is where it all begins and Dynamite's plans for Buck Rogers follow the model that they've followed over the years beginning with Red Sonja, embracing the history of such classic characters, but giving them a modern edge for today's audiences! All this, and for a quarter to introduce you to the new canon of Buck Rogers! Look for the Alex Ross Sneak Peek cover, featuring a look at Ross' cover to issue #1 of the Dynamite series!

JACK OF FABLES #33

Written by Matthew Sturges & Bill Willingham Art by Russ Braun & Jose Marzan Jr. Cover by Brian Bolland Part 2 of 'The Great Fables Crossover'! This is the opening salvo in what will come to be known around the world as 'The Great Fables Crossover' (except for that one issue of FABLES that comes out the previous week that actually starts it, but who gives a crap?). You know, everyone is always saying, 'Hey, we want to see Jack get his ass kicked.' And since this is a crossover, there could be all kinds of people who might be kicking Jack's ass. But it'll probably only involve the one person you're thinking would do something like that.
