GREG RUCKA proudly presents a new direction in adventure with…COMPASS!

Shahidah El-Amin is many things: scholar, cartographer, astronomer, mathematician, scientist, explorer, adventurer, and—when need be—two-fisted fighter. Setting out from Baghdad's legendary House of Wisdom during the Islamic Golden Age, Shahi's quest brings her to 13th-century Britain…where the Welsh are whispered to possess the secret of eternal life. But Shahi's not the only one after it…

Re-teaming from the pages of THE OLD GUARD: TALES THROUGH TIME, writers ROBERT MACKENZIE and DAVE WALKER (THE LAZARUS SOURCEBOOK) and artist JUSTIN GREENWOOD (Stumptown, THE FUSE, THE LAST SIEGE) take you on a breathless race. Follow the Compass to unlock the secrets of the ancient world!

THE OLD GUARD: TALES THROUGH TIME #2 IN STORES TODAY

On shelves today! The second issue of The Old Guard: Tales Through Time. In addition to my normal design chores on this one, I also wrote the second story in the issue, a Western of sorts, illustrated by Mike Henderson (NAILBITER). Oh, and the first story is by the BITCH PLANET team of Kelly Sue DeConnick(!) and Val De Landro (!). Not a shabby return to comics writing, I must say.

A FUN THING

My friend Gareth-Michael Skarka put together a short promotional video for The Old Guard: Tales Through Time. Each issue has three variant covers. Cover "A" are character portraits, Cover "B" features an image by one of the issue's contributors and all six issues' worth of Cover "C" combine to form one big, fighty, violent, fun image. This video features the combined "C" covers (by Leandro Fernández and colored by Danila Miwa).

Andromache the Scythian—a warrior over six thousand years old, who has fought more battles than she cares to remember—has kept one constant companion through her long lifetime of combat…her labrys.

 

Andy's battle axe takes many forms, and many lives, in its centuries at her side, a story told by THE OLD GUARD creators GREG RUCKA & LEANDRO FERNÁNDEZ.

 

Meanwhile, Nicolo "Nicky" di Genova and Yusuf "Joe" al-Kaysani, lovers since they tried (and failed) to kill each other in the First Crusade, spend an evening at Berlin's famed Eldorado nightclub in the twilight era of 1932, sharing drinks with drag queens and fistfighting Nazis in an all-new story by writer ANDREW WHEELER (Another Castle: Grimoire) and JACOPO CAMAGNI (NOMEN OMEN)!
