Jim Butcher - Mark Powers - Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files - War Cry
A war is raging between the vampire forces of the Red Court and the White Council - a war that the wizards are losing. So desperate are the Council that they've dragooned the experienced and the outcast to reinforce their thinning ranks of Wardens. One of these draftees is one Harry Dresden, Chicago's only wizard-for-hire and a guy who's long been looked upon with suspicion by the supernatural authorities. Now, he's one of them, and his first big mission as a Warden is a doozy: take a small team of greenhorns to a frigid town in the middle of nowhere to rescue a handful of mortals who've been targeted by the Red Court. The question is, why exactly are these particular mortals so crucial to the outcome of the war? The answer will come only if Harry can keep them, and his team, alive for one very long night. This graphic novel collects the critically acclaimed five-issue series in one volume, and features a bonus section with Jim Butcher's original story outline, sketchbook artwork from Carlos Gomez, cover gallery with roughs from Stjepan Sejic, and more! Creator Commentary from Jim Butcher: "The greatest frustration about writing the Dresden Files is all the stories I come up with that are too small or too straightforward to write into a novel. One of the great pleasures I've had as a writer is getting the opportunity to tell some of those stories in a short-story format, and in graphic novels like this one! War Cry is one of the stories I always wanted to tell but never got the chance to in the context of the novels, and I'm extremely pleased with how well it's coming out."
Jim Butcher - Mark Powers - Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files - Wild Card
An uneasy peace has settled over Chicago, where an array of supernatural factions frequently battle for supremacy. Thanks to the city's only Wizard for Hire, Harry Dresden, a plot targeting magical practitioners was stopped, and the White Court of Vampires' part in it exposed. 'Gentleman' Johnny Marcone, the town's most powerful and ruthless mob boss, was made a freeholding Baron under the Unseelie Accords, a set of decrees governing the actions of the magical world's major powers, in return for his help in ending the threat. Son after, Marcone once again aided Harry and his apprentice, Molly Carpenter, this time helping them take down a mad wizard bent on making Chicago his personal playground. However, the gangster remains a dangerous criminal who, whatever his motivations, is wholly focused on cultivating his own power. The White Court, led by Lara Raith, is the dominant supernatural faction and sees the city's citizens as nothing more than a source of sustenance and pleasure. Things are calm now, but tension between these rivals boils beneath the surface... _Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files_ saga continues in this original and in-continuity graphic novel, featuring a never-before-told story set after the bestselling novel _White Night_ and graphic novel _Down Town_!
