"The Best Indie Book of the year. Sci-fi tales are making a comeback and The Surrogates is quietly leading the charge." -- IGN "An absolutely fascinating piece of work -- heartfelt and thoughtful." -- Fantasy & Science Fiction "Good science fiction is hard to come by, but Venditti's blend of technology, crime drama and social commentary makes for the most original sci-fi mythology in years."-- Wizard Magazine "Robert Venditti delivers an impressive comics debut."-- SFX "A resplendently grimy commentary."-- Entertainment Weekly The year is 2054, and life is reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the personal surrogate, android substitutes that let users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes. It's a perfect world, and it's up to Detectives Harvey Greer and Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they'll need to stop a techno-terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing them. The Surrogates is a story about progress and whether there exists a tipping point at which technological advancement will stop enhancing and start hindering our lives. It is also a commentary on identity, the Western obsession with physical appearance, and the growing trend to use science as a means of providing consumers with beauty on demand. This volume collects all five issues of the acclaimed comic book series. Packed with bonus content, inside you will find never-before-seen sketches and artwork, as well as commentary from the creative team that brought this breakout story to the page.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Named one of the year's best graphic novels by CNN, Complex, IFC, School Library Journal, Library Journal, and USA Today! "A great, paranoid read for the modern age."-- Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing "Venditti's cat-mouse thriller demands edge-of-your-seat attention while raising serious questions about terrorism, personal privacy, and government responsibility ... excellent writing and plotting, and dead suitable art."-- Library Journal "In exploring the nature of the relation between the individual, society and the state, one would anticipate The Homeland Directive to elevate both the thriller genre and the comics medium. Venditti delivers admirably on both counts."-- Dr. shathley Q, PopMatters "An addictive page-turner that feels like an edge-of-your-seat theater experience. Huddleston's art puts the focus where it needs to be to wring every drop of tension from the story, and Venditti's script shows that he doesn't need the sci-fi elements of his earlier work to craft a fascinating, fast-paced thriller."-- Rick Marshall, MTV Splash Page "The conspiracy at the heart of this superbly paced thriller makes the Illuminati and the New World Order look like rank amateurs."-- Garrett Martin, Paste Magazine "An exceptionally good graphic novel for the moment... with a sophisticated sense of how government works."-- Alyssa Rosenberg, ThinkProgress "It's unlikely you'll find a book that looks as good as The Homeland Directive this year."-- Graeme McMillan, Robot 6 "Pulse-pounding... well-characterized, the plotting is tight, and the stakes are high. Mike Huddleston's art flips from pen and ink to painterly, but consistently captures the right mood and inspires the gritting of teeth."-- Jeremy Nisen, Under the Radar A new thriller from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Surrogates! As a leading researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Laura Regan is one of the world's foremost authorities on viral and bacteriological study. Having dedicated her career to halting the spread of infectious disease, she has always considered herself one of the good guys. But when her research partner is murdered and Laura is blamed for the crime, she finds herself at the heart of a vast and deadly conspiracy. Aided by three rogue federal agents who believe the government is behind the frame-up, Laura must evade law enforcement, mercenaries, and a team of cyber-detectives who know more about her life than she does-- all while trying to expose a sinister plot that will impact the lives of every American. Set in the Orwellian present, The Homeland Directive confronts one of the vital questions of our time: In an era when technology can either doom or save us, is it possible for personal privacy and national security to coexist?

June 1944. World War II. D-Day. 182 members of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division parachute into the French countryside--a full eighteen miles southeast of their intended target. This original graphic novel from DC Vertigo is the true story of an obscure World War II battle that took place in the small village of Graignes, France for six days and the men that survived to tell the tale. In the worst mis-drop of the D-Day campaign, a group of soldiers are rattled to the core to find themselves even deeper behind enemy lines than anyone had intended. Miraculously, the citizens of Graignes vote to feed and shelter the soldiers, knowing that the decision would bring them terrible punishment if their efforts were discovered by the Germans. That day of reckoning comes faster than anyone could expect. As a small German militia passes through, the world's war comes to their remote town in the countryside and for the the next six days, the small band of American paratroopers and French citizens must fight for their lives to hold back 2,000 enemy combatants. Six Days is a true story of survival, loyalty, the brutality of war and a triumph of the human spirit so rarely brought to the comics form. Writers Kevin Maurer (#1 New York Times bestseller No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden) and Robert Venditti (Green Lantern)--whose uncle fought in the Battle of Graignes and is a key character in the tale--completed exhaustive archival research in preparation this unbelievable untold story from World War II.
