Jack Zero is a legendary gunslinger immortalized in pulp magazines, but when he tells the story himself, it's clear that the truth is a lot different than the fiction that was made out of it. European performance artist Zero Boy and Eisner Award winning artist Arnold Pander (Triple*X, Rune, Grendel) collaborate on the five-part series "Jack Zero," which begins here. Meanwhile, writer Darko Macan (Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron, Grendel Tales: Devils and Deaths) and artist Tommy Lee Edwards (Helix's Gemini Blood, Batman Chronicles) craft an eerie short story of Aliens, where the only things that are clearly black-and-white are the ink and the paper. In "Aliens: Borderlines," a soldier on a far outpost learns what it's like to live in the sort of fear armies inspire. He's come face to face with an Alien, and he's not sure how literal a face-to-face meeting it was. And for those who are already along for the ride, we have the next installments of "The Lords of Misrule," by John Tomlinson and Peter Snejbjerg (The Dreaming), and "Trout," by Troy Nixey.
