Footsloggers and soldiers of fortune, priests, poets, killers, and cads -- they fight for a future Galarchy, for cash, for a cause, for the thrill of adventure. Culled from the forgotten and unwanted of three galaxies, they are trained to be the most elite, and expendable, of fighting forces. Sometimes peacekeepers, sometimes shock troops, the Legion is sent into the Galarchy's most desperate internal and external conflicts. Legionnaires live rough and they die hard, tough as tungsten and loyal to the dirty end.

The Alien Legion is the most feared fighting force in the Galarchy-and Nomad Squad is the best, and the worst, of the lot. Comprised of the outcasts, dregs, and idealists from three galaxies, the expendable grunts of Nomad jump into a series of intense missions prompted by everything from attacks by biomechanical religious zealots, orders to eliminate a traitorous legion hero, and the personal whims of a Galarchy bureaucrat. The squad is devastated when three veteran legionnaires die-and another faces an even worse fate in a legion "Mindrobber" machine. Nomad's chemistry is further altered with the addition of Tamara, a cosmic valkyrie who catches Lt. Montroc's attention. Volume 2 features over three hundred story pages and rounds out the first Alien Legion series, including the long-out-of-print A Grey Day to Die graphic novel.

Duenan and Bri join the Olympus police, a force that seems hardly necessary in such a paradise.

A critically-acclaimed crime epic set in an American secessionist militia compound mixing politics with complex family issues, from NYT bestselling author of DMZ. Grace Briggs is the new head of the Briggs family, the largest and most secretive antigovernment secessionist movement in the United States. For over a hundred years it's been a safe harbor for anyone looking to live a simple, quiet life off the grid, but it has since devolved into a hotbed for white extremists, armed militia, and domestic terrorism. She seeks to take control of the Land--and her family--from the forces of extremism and hate, and return it to its core values. But can she accomplish that before law enforcement finds the evidence it needs to wipe Briggs Land off the map? From New York Times Bestselling author Brian Wood (DMZ, The Massive,Rebels) comes the latest in his critically-acclaimed line of socio-political graphic novels. Artist Mack Chater (Smoke/Ashes) illustrates this gritty and electrifying crime saga that speaks to the troubled, polarized world we live in now. [Briggs Land] "It's smart, vibrant, original and well drawn. There's nothing like it out there and it's the best thing Wood may ever have done (and that's saying A LOT...the man is a genius)." -- Forces of Geek "Brian Wood is writing a Dangerous Story with Briggs Land, and that's the kind of story most worth telling."--John Arcudi "Given the current political state of the country, this series feels very relevant indeed." - IGN "BRIGGS LAND IS A UNIQUELY AMERICAN CRIME COMIC YOU NEED TO BE READING."--NERDIST "[Briggs Land is] the Sopranos of secession."--GWW

Grace Briggs is now the leader of the largest antigovernment secessionist group in the United States, having outmaneuvered both Federal law enforcement and an attempted takeover by white power stormtroopers.

Meanwhile, Jim Briggs, humiliated at losing control of the family, seeks revenge.
