A noirish futuristic world founded by a religious cult that left Earth on New Year's Eve, 1999 is the setting for a provocative detective thriller. SON OF SUPERMAN writers Howard Chaykin and David Tischman join artist Rick Burchett (BATMAN: GOTHAM ADVENTURES) for an offbeat mixture of classic film noir, science fiction and psychological thrillers. Featuring covers pencilled by Chaykin and inked by Burchett, PULP FANTASTIC follows the adventures of dashing detective Vector Pope on an artificial planet run by diehard religious fanatics who left Earth at the end of 1999. What appears to be a simple missing-persons case quickly turns seamy and steamy as Pope has dangerous run-ins with the law and a drug-addicted android whose body is a deadly weapon. It's a violent, passionate and humorous story illustrated in a quasi-animated style which provides a unique counterpoint to its lurid backdrop of sex, corruption, church politics, and hypocrisy.

Sex, violence and black humor are served up super-size when Miami's Vampire Crime Unit investigates the murder of a drug-addicted stripper in BITE CLUB: VAMPIRE CRIME UNIT, the follow-up miniseries to the critically acclaimed, top-selling BITE CLUB, written by Howard Chaykin & David Tischman with art by David Hahn and provocative covers by Frank Quitely. The characters who survived BITE CLUB are back, playing cops and mobsters in a gritty, Vampire procedural that opens the vein of Miami vice, and proves the police blotter is a Rorschach test for self-mutilation, power exchange, money and revenge. The elite squad of cops has plenty of problems, including a wide-eyed rookie with a hot-on for the ferociously depraved Risa Del Toro, female Godfather of Miami's toughest crime family, who just happens to be the prime suspect at the scene of the crime.
Bite Club takes place in a world where vampires are the immigrant minority, but the specific family of vampires focused upon, the Del Toro's, are also the mob. Following the patriarch of the family's death, the siblings gather to decide who will take his place over the family. Ironically he left it to Leto, the first vampire Catholic priest, who swore off his family. This leads to the usual round of disagreements and betrayals that would be expected in a crime family, and in the end, only one family member will be allowed to live. Survival of the fittest.
