When Ricardo Delgado--a prolific development and storyboard artist who has worked on such hit films as Men in Black, The Incredibles, WALL-E, X--Men Origins: Wolverine, and the Matrix series--first set his sights on creating comics, he crafted an epic tale about the most unlikely cast of characters: dinosaurs. Since that first foray into the world of sequential art--which earned him an Eisner win for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition--he has returned to his critically acclaimed Age of Reptiles again and again, each time crafting a captivating saga about his saurian subjects. * This volume collects the long--out--of--print Age of Reptiles and Age of Reptiles: The Hunt, and the never--before--collected third series, Age of Reptiles: The Journey. "Delgado once more proves that the age of great illustration is alive and well." --John Landis, Filmmaker, An American Werewolf in London, Michael Jackson's Thriller

Brilliantly observed and profoundly expressed, the ALEC stories present a version of Eddie's own life, filtered through the alter ego of "Alec MacGarry."Over many years, we witness Alec's (and Eddie's) progression "from beer to wine"-- wild nights at the pub, existential despair, the hunt for love, the quest for art, becoming a responsible breadwinner, feeling lost at his own movie premiere, and much more! Eddie's outlandish fantasies and metafictional tricks convert life into art, while staying fully grounded in his own absurdity. At every point, the author's uncanny eye for irony and wry self-awareness make even the smallest occasion into an opportunity for wit and wisdom. Quite simply, ALEC is a masterpiece of visual autobiography. ALEC: The Years Have Pants (A Life-Size Omnibus) collects the previous Alec books The King Canute Crowd, Graffiti Kitchen, How to be an Artist, Little Italy, The Dead Muse, The dance of Lefey Death, After the Snooter, as well as a generous helping of rare and never-before-seen material, including an all-new 35-page book, The Years Have Pants.

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.

Like sports, the victor is he who wants it more. Unlike sports, the loser earns extinction. Mankind has fought for survival over countless millennia, but nothing has threatened humanity's existence like the murderous Alien scourge. While some have tried to use the creatures' deadly abilities to serve their own selfish ends, no one can dance with the devil, and ultimately only one species must prevail. To that end, men have turned their own lethal instincts and cold intellect against the monsters, creating engineered plagues, cybernetic fighting suits, and even bogus android aliens, but survival rides not on technology, but on the primacy of the most deep-rooted, feral instincts. * Nearly four hundred story pages in full color, some never before collected! * Creators include horror novelist Chet Williamson, as well as John Arcudi, Doug Mahnke, Jon Wagner, Ronnie del Carmen, and many more! * Collectes Music of the Spears #1 - 4, Stronghold, Berserker #1 - 4, "Taste", and the "Mondo Pest" and "Mondo Heat" one-shots.
