DEAD MANS PARTY TP
(W) Jeff Marsick (A/CA) Barnett, Scott
In the assassin trade, a Dead Man’s Party is part Viking funeral, part Irish wake, a twisted way for your murderous peers to either honor your memory or settle a score. Each of the five professional killers who participate have 30 days to collect the bounty on your head, adding your distinguished name to his or her resume. And the “contract” is wholly irrevocable. For the world’s most feared executioner – known only as Ghost – arranging such a Party for himself is a last resort, a way to go out on his own terms and at the top of his game.

FAKE EMPIRE TP

As Charli and Lucy delve deeper into the mystery, they begin to discover the extraordinary measures their father has taken – some clever, some desperate – to keep an entire people hidden in an increasingly treacherous world. For Charlie and Lucy, unmasking their sister’s executioner will mean confronting their own blood-drenched legacy.

It should come as no surprise to learn that within the superhero “community,” egos run rampant. But how does all that free-flowing narcissism impact those just outside the spotlight? Chicago finds out when five of the city’s most loyal Sidekicks finally grow tired of being disrespected by both the prima donnas they work with and the citizenry they strive to protect. And it’s not like the Windy City needs yet another labor upheaval.
