Potential nuggets from Image in May

art & cover by JUAN E. FERREYRA
created & co-plotted by JIM VALENTINO
May 3 o 32 pg o FC o $3.50

"REVELATION1:4"
Messiah or Anti-Christ? Terrorist or savior? The world's first superhuman or alien invader? Who is the Emissary and what is his mission? When he reveals himself high over New York City, how will people react? And more importantly, what will he do when the government tries to kill him? Emissary is a re-examination of the superhero mythos, which asks the question: How would the world react to a real superhuman? With awe or with fear, with joy or with hatred?

THE LAST CHRISTMAS #1 (of 6)
written by GERRY DUGGAN & BRIAN POSEHN

cover by GEOF DARROW

CHAPTER ONE: "TWAS THE FIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS"
After the apocalypse no one is safe - even at the North Pole. After tragedy strikes, Santa withdraws from life and turns his back on Christmas. When he finally emerges from seclusion, the old world is gone forever and as Santa struggles to find his way in a post-apocalyptic world, can he find a way to save Christmas too?

This true story of the last Christmas is action-packed, funny and sad. It stars Santa, the Elves, a good boy, lots of naughty marauders and of course, Gary the Snowman.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
