In the town of Tilden live a farmer and his wife. For many years, they’ve enjoyed a simple, agrarian existence, raising their twin children, Gwyneth and Gavin. Tilden has always been a place of peace, and its residents could never imagine the fate that’s soon to befall them. <br /><br />When a vicious dragon begins to plague the village, burning buildings and stealing stores, even the strongest adults will be at a loss. After all, what purpose could their walls or their weaponries really serve? Thick of skin and fiery of temper, a skyborne behemoth can’t be stopped so easily.<br /><br />There may be a single solution: the bravery of one young boy. <br />Gavin would do anything to protect his family, and this includes embarking upon a journey that’s rife with peril...but can courage, alone, extinguish the flame of malice? If he hopes to succeed, Gavin will need to accept whatever help comes his way—even if it is from a witch! <br /><br />Recounted in songful rhyme, replete with smoldering artwork, Gavin The Brave breathes new life into medieval mythology. Kids and parents all agree: a total blast awaits!

From Hugo Award-winning writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads, the team behind THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON, comes an ambitious new take on one of Jack Kirby's most beloved New Gods in MISTER MIRACLE! One of the best-reviewed series of the year and already a classic in the making, this Mister Miracle is magical, dark, intimate and unlike anything you've read before.<br /> <br />Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great, he escaped Granny Goodness' gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made quite a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, who has counted him among its ranks.<br /><br /> You might say Scott Free has everything--so why isn't it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick--except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.<br /><br /> Collects MISTER MIRACLE #1-12.
