While most people know the name Gerard Way as the frontman of the platinum-selling rock band My Chemical Romance, this dynamic rock star has scored equal success in the comic book world with the Eisner Award-winning The Umbrella Academy.
Outside the mystical city of Shambhalla, an evil sorcerer plots to steal an artifact from a legendary cave. The only one who can help him is Shambhalla's most nortorious thief: Ala ad-Din, better known as Aladdin. But when the sorcerer crosses Aladdin, it sparks an adventure that spans from Shambhalla's borders to the ends of the Earth in a tale filled with magic, romance, courage and adventure.
Radical Publishing is proud to announce that for the first time ever, Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost, the fresh new take on the classic adventure tale, is now available for order in Diamond Previews in one complete trade paperback. Written by multi-Eisner nominated Ian Edginton (Victorian Undead) with gorgeous interior art by fan-favorite artist Stjepan Sejic (Witchblade) and rising star Patrick Reilly, Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost takes readers on a journey to the world of the Arabian Nights and beyond with the travels of the notorious rogue, Aladdin.
This new deluxe trade paperback collects the full miniseries with a number of extras, including an in-depth interview with critically acclaimed writer Ian Edginton, never-before-seen production renderings and a gallery featuring the internationally acclaimed artwork of Luis Royo (Heavy Metal), Marko Djurdjevic (Thor), Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies), Clayton Crain (X-Force) and many more.
Aladdin: Legacy of the Lost Trade Paperback is available to order now in the May 2010 edition of Diamond Previews, shipping July 2010.
Two of the most popular horror properties of the last two decades collide in this harrowing 6-issue adventure of epic proportions! Co-writers Steve Niles (writer and co-creator of 30 Days of Night) and rockstar-turned-writer Adam Jones (the band Tool) team with the amazing, moody artistry of industry legend Tom Mandrake (The Spectre, Batman) to unleash the ultimate comic culture crossover!
When evidence of a possible cannibal killer in Wainright, Alaska, draws the attention of the FBI, Agents Mulder and Scully draw the less-than-glamorous assignment. But all is not as it seems once the agents are on the ground. Not only has the long seasonal darkness begun to fall, but there's something unnatural about a few of the locals. And what does a chilling, mysterious black ship have to do with the murders?

When Earth receives a broadcast from an extremely advanced alien species in the form of a mysterious and frightening blood-red rain storm, humanity is offered a simple choice: compete in an ancient interplanetary combat ritual or watch as Earth is methodically destroyed.
Ten human warriors must now be chosen to fight in a battle that pits highly evolved species from various worlds against one another. This ancient and deadly tournament will ultimately decide the fate of our planet as well as three others. It is time to fight for humanity, it is time for AGON.
