The time is now. A Military helicopter crash lands in a remote valley in Africa. A lone survivor awakens with no memory of who he is or what he was doing there, but he's wearing a uniform and is a skilled combatant. From the wreckage he learns only his name -- ROGER DRUM. As he explores his new surroundings he is confronted by a bizarre lost world of dinosaurs and other strange creatures. Drum must learn to survive in this terrifying new reality while coming to terms with fragments of a past he isn't sure he wants to remember. As a bonus, this over-sized issue also includes the original first issue with fantastic art by the one-and-only Frank Frazetta at no extra cost!

Cover by TIM BRADSTREET

Jen Fellows is a housewife with two kids, a devoted husband, a beautiful suburban home, two cars, a plasma TV, a Mk. 153 SMAW Launcher, an AK47, ten pounds of C4, a large number of grenades, several hundred rounds of hollow-point ammunition, a great big knife…Jen Fellows was also Jennifer Blood, a vengeance-fuelled vigilante taking brutal revenge on the five men who destroyed her parents. But now that she’s finished off the last of them, her mission is over at last. All’s well that ends well? In a word… no. It turns out you can’t murder the five heads of a crime family – plus various assorted bodyguards, associates, ninja schoolgirl assassins, etc. – without any consequences. There are leftover weapons to dispose of, nosy neighbours who might know a little too much, kids getting too curious about the hidden armory in the basement, detectives picking up all the clues you forgot you dropped… and a consortium of rich and powerful people, with private armies of highly trained mercenaries at their command, who want a little revenge of their own.
