He's an ex-terrorist from the scrag-end of London with a connoisseur's understanding of every foul narcotic known to humanity. He's a four hundred year old derelict and hated by at least half the inhabitants of a poisoned and depopulated Earth. He's actually a bit of brain locked inside a body sculpted from intelligent plastic that renders him immortal. And all he wants to do is die. Meet Lazarus Churchyard, suicide-crazed unkillable junkie trapped in a future so disgusting that it makes him the good guy by default. Lazarus Churchyard was what happened when the British got their hands on cyberpunk. Tundra commissioned two sequel books to the original 40-page story -- which included stories not illustrated by ur-LAZ artist D'Israeli -- which were collected into a trade paperback in 1992. Lazarus Churchyard: The Final Cut sets things right and supplants the long-out-of-print earlier edition by bringing together the core stories by Warren Ellis and D'Israeli, and finishing the collection with a brand-new story created especially for this book.

From the time before history began: from the time when the continents were still connected by land: from the harsh climes at the top of the world, a Northish soldier wrapped in a cape of wolfpelts walks south, into the forests of the High Midlands that are now Europe, to find a village cut in two by travelers from the East. Soon, he too is torn - between duty to the lives he has ruined just by finding them, and duty to the hideous murder-god of the Northish wastes and the berserker drugs that are his sacrament... Warren Ellis cuts loose to unleash his take on the genre fans demanded he assault with full color art from Juan Jose Ryp! WOLFSKIN fuses heroic fantasy in the mode of CONAN, the Viking sagas, and samurai fiction into a single story of weird history and apocalyptic violence.
A troubled woman, barred by her employer from continuing her research, walks miserably through New York City. It takes her a moment to notice that everybody else is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of the Halo skyscraper. And that woman-Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she’s buried in her own body-is the only person who can save him. What she doesn’t know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history. New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, THE AUTHORITY) returns to DC to curate Jim Lee’s WildStorm world, with this debut issue resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.
Storm goes into the Morlock Tunnels to perform the Ceremony of Light and has flashbacks of Callisto, Mikhail, and Marrow before being sent to another dimension. Cable finds her lifeless body and tells the X-Men that she has died.
There is a place that exists sideways of the normal Earth. And that place was named in the late ‘90s over a century ago. And the name of this place is… the Negative Zone! Some people are hard at work in the Negative Zone. A storm is coming up and it doesn’t look so good. One of the workers, Keith, doesn’t feel so good about it. His coworkers laugh at him and don’t want to hear about it. Keith tries to warn the others, but they simply refuse to listen. After all, they are all in protection suits, so what can happen to them?...

Now they have to deal with the corrosion to try and save us all from a world becoming too weird to support human life.

A serialized sequence of graphic novels about how loud and strange the world is getting, about the wild future and the haunted past all crashing into the present day at once, and about five eccentric geniuses dealing with the paranormal and numinous as well as the growing weight of what they did to the planet with the Injection.
In an unnamed military complex a General and his troops are confronted by the Planetaryfield team. They quickly dispatch his troops and ask for information on a scientist named David Paine. The General informs Planetary that in 1962 during the cold war David Paine created a supercomputer that was also a bomb that could rewrite or erase matter. This Supercomputer met with much praise from many including the General's wife who came to see Paine unaware that the bomb was going through a test run in the desert. Paine rushed into the desert to save the General's wife but was caught up in the explosion. Paine's exposure to the device's reality altering affects transformed him into a horrific creature that the army battled for twenty four days before he was finally captured. The General ultimately reveals that nobody has been able to understand Paine's notes and that their ultimate solution to the problem was to bury Paine in a five mile deep pit without food or water. Paine finally died in 1983 The General then says that his wife had a little girl six months later and that he has never seen her. (Note: The story is a clever reworking of the classic origin story of Marvel's Incredible Hulk.)
