Written by Scott Snyder with art by Tula Lotay and colors by Tula Lotay and Dee Cunniffe—High flying adventure and romance fuel Barnstormers, a lush and unforgettable story set just after the First World War.

It’s 1923 — the barnstorming era, where pilots fresh from the airfields of the Great War made a living taking civilians for joyrides in the sky for a small fee. One such man claims to be Preston Pike, a dashing war hero pilot, who has flown his way across the U.S. Southeast scrounging for customers while fleeing from his own demons. When a telephone operator says that a big crowd will be awaiting him in nearby Barnville, Preston races over. Instead of eager clientele, though, he finds himself crashing a wedding, and the party isn’t exactly thrilled. But when Claire, the would-be-bride, decides to make an early getaway, Preston unexpectedly becomes a Clyde to this vengeful Bonnie.

Along the way they bond, confessing their secrets and engaging in a romance for the ages. Will all that change when the Pinkerton agent following close by finally closes in on them?

Barnstormers is an intimate portrait of love and war — and a meditation on the dangerous level of trust required in both romance and aviation.

Scott Snyder and Jock—the creative team of the New York Times bestselling blockbuster The Batman Who Laughs—reunite for a young adult horror graphic novel. The Book of Evil tells the story of four young friends growing up in a strange, near future where over 90% of the population are born as psychopaths…

Imagine a world where nearly every baby born is a future psychopath. Is this human evolution? A virus? Can it be cured? Regardless, just like that, the new normal is psychopathy.

Quinn is a curious, quiet, and determined 12-year-old boy—and an artist. The story of The Book of Evil unfolds in first person narration from Quinn’s point of view, featuring his journal entries, alongside his illustrations from his journey – as well as excerpts of his father’s cartoon strip called “The Book of Evil.” His father’s popular cartoon featured an everyman named Everett who time traveled, met heroic figures of the past, and murdered them in hyper-violent ways. Was Quinn’s father telling a story to entertain? Or was he leaving clues in “The Book of Evil” for those, like his son and his friends, looking to change the world?

The Book of Evil is ambitious storytelling, featuring a unique combination of prose and multiple styles of illustration, by two of the most popular creators working in comics today.

In 1891 a mine collapsed into itself. What was the dark substance found 666 feet underground? Blending modern horror, historical fact and Western lore, Scott Snyder and Dan Panosian have created a uniquely terrifying thriller with Canary.

During the final days of the Gold Rush, one mining company in Colorado, pulled up radioactive Uranium, and then the mine then collapsed in on itself. Legends sprung up about the mine being cursed or even haunted.

Now the Frontier is closed, the gold and silver mines have dried up. The country is becoming “civilized,” and yet in one stretch of the Rocky Mountains, a terrifying, new kind of violence is suddenly emerging. Random killings. People going mad and murdering neighbors, classmates without real cause. When a schoolboy kills his teacher with a hatchet, a famous federal marshal named Azrael William Holt is called in to investigate the killings. What he--and a brilliant young geologist--uncover is stranger and more horrifying than anything they could have ever imagined.

Welcome to Whitebear, Alaska, just a thousand miles south of the North Pole. The population in summer is about two hundred. In winter, when the temperature regularly hits twenty below zero, the population dwindles to about twenty.

Josephine ("Joe") Widjaja is a year-rounder. At 30 years old, she runs a small depot for prop planes out in the snow. She's tough, independent, and haunted by a past she doesn't want to talk about. But that's fine, because Whitebear is a place for loners, people who've opted out of a conventional life. Ice truckers and hippies, maybe a student from the marine biology center. It's a quiet, beautiful, tough life. And Joe likes it that way.

But all that changes one night when a helicopter crashes near her depot. Not just any helicopter, either -- this one was carrying the richest man in the world, tech impresario Del Dison.

A wounded Dison is brought to the local bar, where the other residents of Whitebear are gathered for a start of winter party. Here, a wounded Dison issues a warning to the town. In a matter of hours, a virus released into the air years ago will cause the food chain to essentially invert. Insects, birds, fish, every few hours another strata will turn on man, until every living creature is trying to kill us.

Even as he tells Joe and the residents of Whitebear about what's coming, the news reports start...insects, swarming people around the world. But Dison has an offer for the townsfolk, one that just might save them, or cause them to tear each other apart.

Chain is a tense, claustrophobic thriller set against the end of the world. Beautifully illustrated by Ariela Kristantina, it's a take you won't soon forget.

Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla have entertained and terrified comic book fans, now these two modern masters of horror collaborate for the first time ever on Night of The Ghoul, a bloody reimagining of horror monsters that celebrates classic creature features, while creating a contemporary new kind of horror story.

Shot in 1936, “Night of the Ghoul” by director T.F. Merritt was meant to sit beside “Frankenstein” and “Dracula” as an instant classic. But the legendary film never made it to the silver screen. A mysterious studio fire destroyed the footage and killed the cast and crew at the wrap-party. No footage was ever recovered…until now.

When Forest Inman, a horror film obsessive, stumbles across a forgotten canister of footage, he just might have discovered the remnants of “Night of the Ghoul.” This discovery sends Forest on a dark odyssey to the California desert, where he’s warned by a mysterious old man that the film’s ghoul is far more than a work of fiction: it’s a very real monster who plans to kill him.

Night of The Ghoul is a dazzling work of horror, intercutting between the present-day narrative and the story of the lost film (drawn by Francavilla in stunning black and white).

Written by Scott Snyder with art by Tony S. Daniel and Tomeu Morey—imagine that tomorrow the sun simply doesn't rise. You wait. And you wait, but night just continues... You can still feel the sun's warmth –it must BE THERE– but for some reason, light no longer reaches the earth. And this new darkness, there's something strange about it, something terrifying. Because anything (or anyone) that stays in it too long starts to change…

Nocterra takes place ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous “shades.” The only way to survive is to stay close to artificial light. There are rumors of sanctuaries –perpetually-lit bunkers– where the shade-transformation can even be reversed, but most people assume these are just legends. Enter Valentina “Val” Riggs, a skilled “ferryman” who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen-wheeler.

When an old man promising sanctuary offers Val a job to drive him and his granddaughter up through the Rocky Mountains, she takes it, hoping there might be some truth to his claim. What she finds in the end, though, is something much more horrifying than any shade…
