Magic Ex Libris #2: Codex Born
Five hundred years ago, Johannes Gutenberg discovered the art of libriomancy, allowing him to reach into books to create things from their pages. Gutenberg's power brought him many enemies, and some of those enemies have waited centuries for revenge. When a wendigo is brutally slaughtered in a long-established werewolf territory, libriomancer Isaac Vainio is called in to investigate, along with Porter psychiatrist Nidhi Shah, and their dryad bodyguard and lover, Lena Greenwood. Born decades ago from the pages of a pulp fantasy novel, Lena was created to be the ultimate fantasy woman, strong and deadly, but shaped by the needs and desires of her companions. Her powers are unique, and Gutenberg's enemies hope to use those powers for themselves. But their plan could unleash a far darker evil.

The Outsorcerer's Apprentice
An army of goblins, or the Big Bad Wolf, or a professional dragon slayer. Who cares about their intolerable working conditions, lack of adequate health insurance, and terrible coffee in the canteen? With access to a diverse workforce and limitless resources, maximizing revenue has never been an issue for The Wizard. But his business model - based on sound fiscal planning, entrepreneurial flair, and only one or two of the infinite parallel worlds that make up our universe - is about to be disrupted by a young man not entirely aware of what's going on. There's also a slight risk that the fabric of reality will be torn to shreds.

Sandman Slim #5: Kill City Blues
Stark has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in Los Angeles. But along the way he misplaced the Qomrama Om Ya, a weapon from the banished older gods who are also searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a multi-story copy of LA - infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny territories. Somewhere in the kill zone of the former mall is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, get back out alive, and outrun some angry old gods - and a few killers - on his tail.
