Jim Butchers Dresden Files Ghoul Goblin #1
Description: An original comic series set in the official Dresden Files continuity!
Harry Dresden has survived the events of Fool Moon -- barely -- but all is not well in his world.
He's still alienated from his closest friend, Karrin Murphy, and on exceedingly poor terms with Chicago's number one gangster, John Marcone. And that's just the small stuff -- the creatures of the Nevernever don't take vacations and aren't particularly worried about Harry's friendships or love life.
By: Jim Butcher, Joe Cooper, Ardian Syaf

Description: The only thing worse than Earth having an inter-dimensional stargate that led to the Zombies vs. Robots catastrophe are Martians using one of their own to lead a sneak attack on Earth. But what will happen when zombies get a scent of those big, exposed Martian brains?
Zombie-Robot-Martian chaos from the co-creator of ZvR, Chris Ryall, and TMNT artist Andy Kuhn!
