EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS PELLUCIDAR AT EARTHS CORE GN
DARK HORSE COMICS
Writers: Len Wein, Dennis O’Neil
Artists: Michael William Kaluta, Dan Green, Alan Weiss
In a story originally conceived of by Edgar Rice Burroughs, a group of explorers find a land inhabited by prehistoric reptiles, strange creatures, and beings enacting dark rituals. But most importantly, they discover the beautiful Dian, queen of Pellucidar, who captures their hearts and leads them on a wild adventure to aid her and win her trust. This collects selected stories previously published in Korak, Son of Tarzan #1 and Weird Worlds #1-7 from DC Comics.
X-O MANOWAR #1
Writer: Matt Kindt
Artist: Tomas Giorello
Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age.
It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor. With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.
But that was a lifetime ago. Now, far from home on a strange and primitive new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.
But the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give them war!
