Neil Gaiman - P. Craig Russell - The Sandman: The Dream Hunters Graphic Novel
In honor of the 20th anniversary of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, THE SANDMAN: THE DREAM HUNTERS is a hardcover comics adaptation of Gaiman's original prose novella by the same name illustrated by Yoshitako Amano. The world was different in old Japan. In those days, creatures of myth and legend walked upon the earth, swam in the sea, flew through the air. Some were wild and some, at great cost, could be tamed. So it was that a wily fox made a wager to dislodge a humble young monk from his home--and lost her heart in the betting. So it was also that a master of the demons of this world set his own eyes on the monk, seeking to seize the pious man's inner strength for his own. And so it was, the King of All Night's Dreaming would find himself intervening on behalf of a love that was never meant to be... Adapted by P. Craig Russell from the award-winning story by NEW YORK TIMES best-selling author Neil Gaiman, THE SANDMAN: THE DREAM HUNTERS is a richly evocative return to the world of The Dreaming, seen through entirely new eyes. Collects the entire 4-issue series as well as a sketch section by P. Craig Russell. Also included is a cover gallery that includes work by P. Craig Russell, Yuko Shimizu, Mike Mignola, Paul Pope and Joe Kubert. "THE DREAM HUNTERS is a lovingly-crafted piece of work. Russell produces...as faithful an adaptation as one could ever hope for."--IGN

Hideyuki Kikuchi - Saiko Takaki - D, a vámpírvadász 3.
Végre megérkezett a világhírű D, a vámpírvadász-regénysorozat mangaadaptációjának oly rég várt harmadik kötete, melynek történetéből a D, a vámpírvadász – Vérszomj című animesiker született. A vámpírvadász, akit egyszerűen csak „D”-ként ismernek, és híres arról, hogy a kard útját járva teljesíti küldetéseit, most újabb vérdíjra pályázik. Ezúttal egy falu gazdag elöljárójának leányát kell megmentenie, akit elrabolt egy vámpírnemes, Mayerling. De mi van, ha egy másik fejvadászcsapat is elvállalta ugyanezt a megbízást? A hírhedt zsoldosklán, a Marcus család feje, Borgoff, a legidősebb fivér pedig nem csak a lány visszaszerzését tűzte ki a törvényt semmibe vevő, kíméletlen martalócokból álló csapata elé. Az ő céljuk maga a pusztítás: mindent megsemmisíteni, ami a pénz megszerzésének útjában áll, beleértve D-t is. De Mayerling talán mégsem egészen az, akinek látszik… Hogy elég időt nyerjen és lerázza üldözőit, illetve elérje titkos úti célját, egy biztos menedéket nyújtó falu felé veszi útját, melyet rettentő képességekkel megáldott, számkivetett mutáns szörnyek laknak. Mi áll az emberrablás hátterében, melynek áldozata, úgy tűnik, mindennél fontosabb számára? Tényleg rablás, vagy talán valamiféle különös leányszöktetés, „vámpír módra”? Lehet, hogy ez a vámpírnemes több annál, mint amit látni enged? D-n áll, hogy kiderítse az események mögött meghúzódó valódi okokat, és az idő egyre fogy. De ha ennyi akadály tornyosul előtte, vajon képes lesz időben odaérni, mielőtt a „szép fogolynő” mindörökre eltűnik? Takaki földöntúli és álomszerű képi világa újabb magaslatokba emeli Kikuchi vízióját a dörzsölt és sztoikus vámpírvadászról ebben a Rómeó és Júlia-jellegű mesében, amely a méltán nagy sikerű D, a vámpírvadász-regénysorozat harmadik kötetéből készült.
