Now, witness Marneus Calgar's never-before-told origin story, from his beginnings on Nova Thulium, to his campaigns in the Black Crusades, and to the unfolding mystery of the Black Altar, as a deadly threat from his past reemerges to threaten the present of the Ultramar system. This all-new tale is essential reading for 40K aficionados, as well as the perfect primer to the world of Warhammer 40,000 for those new to the universe.

Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and Shaun Simon take it all back to their original concept, rebooting the Killjoys in present-day America, where it's impossible to tell what's real and what Mom and Dad just tell you to keep you calm.

Five thousand children will be rescued by these mysterious message-senders.
This is the journey of Hototo, one of the lucky five thousand - but only if his teenage sister, Tala, can safely deliver him to the nearest Beacon before time runs out.
We Live is a world of violence and beauty, a unique tale of the apocalypse as told by Inaki Miranda (Catwoman, Batman Beyond) and Roy Miranda, that invites both dread and hope.
