Now Patience, a young and untrained beauty, must take on the role of the new Madgalena, perhaps even before she's ready.

Fan favorites Spawn and Witchblade team together for the first time in TWO DECADES!! In this issue: A village is besieged by a dark force—then Spawn emerges from out of the shadows to save them all. Is he their savior... or their destroyer?
The next chapter in this series begins with the release of Aria: The Soul Market. The world of Kildare, expatriate princess of Faerie and star of Aria, gets turned upside down when Goodfellow, the deadly, mischievous sprite immortalized in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, comes to New York. Convinced that Goodfellow's intentions are considerably less than pure, Kildare sifts through his trail of riddles and lies, trying to figure out just what is he is up to. Her search leads to an underground soul market, where the immortal spirits of humans are bought, sold and traded -- and to, the memory of Kildare's long forgotten love. Meanwhile, Kildare's friend Ondine becomes obsessed with her own lack of a soul and becomes determined to gain one at any cost.
Somewhere around the corner, just beyond the edge of perception, lies a world you never dreamed existed: A world where creatures of myth and gods long thought dead walk unnoticed among the crowded streets of Manhattan. Aria follows the adventures of Lady Kildare, a faerie princess living in Greenwich Village, and her strange circle of immortal friends. Combining sumptuous illustrations, deeply realized characters and deftly paced narrative, Aria is an unforgettable fairy tale for grown-ups.
A tale of magic, mystery and a love that spans the ages. London, the summer of 1966. The air is electrified with music, the streets are bursting with color, and everywhere you look, Youth is king. Into this strange and brave new world, a wayward knight comes looking for his long lost love: Lady Kildare of the Faerie. Blissfully reunited, the expatriate Fairy Princess helps the time-lost Sir Thomas adapt to the mad whirl of life in the 20th century, a life of motorcars, rock clubs and pop art "happenings." It has been said that love conquers all, but Kildare must learn the hard way that, unlike her, not everyone is meant to live forever. Recommended for readers and fans of... Neal Gaiman, Sandman, and Witchblade.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: It’s the official prequel to the beloved cult classic The Dark Crystal and with the series’ concept, character designs, and covers by legendary illustrator/concept artist Brian Froud, it’s a must-read for all Henson and fantasy fans.
Spawn: The Dark Ages introduces Lord Covenant, a 12th Century knight killed in a holy crusade far from his homeland, who returns to Earth as a HellSpawn.

While Mr. Majestic patrols space he's attacked by a multi-tentacled enemy. After defeating it he discovers that it was just a probe that was getting the lay of the land before whatever sent it could come and eat the entire solar system. He remembers hearing stories of something that he had thought was only a myth and comes to the conclusion that what is coming is not something that he can fight in the normal way. He comes up with a plan and, after discussing it with some of the smartest minds on the planet, decides to do it. Instead of fighting the thing, he will confuse it. He plans to move the planets and celestial bodies of the solar system so when the thing comes, it doesn't see what its probe told it was there and hopefully won't eat everything. He moves planets, travels to other solar systems to get extra moons, he moves Earth itself and even creates a second sun. To hide all this from the people of Earth, he builds machines that surround the Earth and create a fake sky that looks like how things were before he changed them. After months of work, the thing finally comes. The Cosmic Negator comes to devour the solar system but sees that everything is wrong. He leaves and Majestic breathes a sigh of relief, knowing that if push came to shove, he wasn't sure he could fight the Wrathful God-Being of Universal Nihilism. After it's gone he gets to work putting everything back.
The cross-over of the millennium! This month, ARIA--last year's hottest new title-- crosses paths with Todd McFarlane's ultra-popular avenging angel, ANGELA, in a special, prestige format, two-issue event. Set among the cobblestones and gaslights of Victorian London, ARIA/ANGELA: HEAVENLY CREATURES brings together two of the most popular female leads in all of comicdom.

One night, while "slumming" among the city's notorious underbelly, Kildare and her companions come across an illicit, underground sideshow, boasting "Creation's Most Wondrous and Perverse Curiosities." The centerpiece of this bizarre menagerie, A genuine Angel, held in captivity! This sets the stage for an unlikely alliance and the beginning of an unforgettable tale of mystery adventure and retribution.
