BLACKJACKED AND PISTOL-WHIPPED: THE BEST OF CRIME DOES NOT PAY
Gangsters, kidnappers, maniacal killers, and thugs of all stripes had their lurid stories recounted in Crime Does Not Pay, a seminal forties comic-book series. Bob Wood, its editor, brutally murdered his girlfriend, did prison time, and was then murdered himself!

Featuring thrilling, brutal tales and despicable characters, Crime Does Not Pay enthralled a nation. With a claimed readership of over five million, it was the most popular comic book of its day. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the Comics Code Authority, yet it was an inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman’s reality-based EC Comics.

GREEN RIVER KILLER: A TRUE DETECTIVE STORY
Acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen presents the ultimate insider’s account of America’s most prolific serial killer in Green River Killer: A Detective Story.
In 1984, finding the murderer of dozens of women throughout the Seattle area became the highest priority of local police.

In 2003, after finally apprehending the Green River Killer with DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most tightly held secrets—an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.

Trigun creator, Yasuhiro Nightow, returns to Dark Horse with a frantic new mini-series — Blood Blockade Battlefront!
In Nightow’s new world, a breach between Earth and the netherworlds has opened up over the city of New York, trapping New Yorkers and creatures from other dimensions in an impenetrable bubble. They’ve lived together for years, in a world of crazy crime sci-fi sensibilities. Now someone is threatening to sever the bubble, and a group of stylish superhumans is working to keep it from happening. Like Trigun, Nightow’s Blood Blockade Battlefront is non-stop action, unbridled imagination, and a ton of strange weaponry.
