In 2000, legendary writer/artist Walter Simonson, best known for his work on DC's Manhunter and Marvels' Thor, treated comics fans to his vision of Jack Kirby's Fourth World mythology. At the center of the series was the conflict between Orion, born on the violent world of Apokolips but raised on peaceful New Genesis, and his father, Darkseid, ruler of Apokolips. Focusing on the clash between father and son, the series features most of the Fourth World heroes and villains created by Jack Kirby, as Darkseid seeks the deadly anti-life equation - and Orion battles to stop him from eradicating life as we know it! This title also includes short stories written by Simonson and illustrated by Frank Miller, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, Jim Lee and others. Collects ORION #1-25 and stories from JACK KIRBY'S FOURTH WORLD #9-11 and 13.

A fascinating addition to the magical literature of the Elizabethan era, this unique grimoire is a must-have for magic aficionados and historians. Dating from the time of Shakespeare (c. 1580), The Book of Oberon is a meticulous transcription and translation of a magic book recently rediscovered by the Folger Shakespearean Library. Unlike the more theoretical magic books of the era, this is a compilation of practical spells, secrets, and summonings. The Book of Oberon includes rituals for summoning spirits and faeries (including Oberon); original drawings; talismans and charms for toothaches, bleeding, the capture of thieves, and other practical matters; one of the oldest known copies of the magical manual The Enchiridion; and much more.
