From renowned writer Ian Edginton (STORMWATCH: PHD) and acclaimed international artist Davide Fabbri (Star Wars) comes an incredible new Sherlock Holmes adventure! Featuring a cover by original Walking Dead artist Tony Moore
“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” Those are the words of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, the world’s first consulting detective, yet even he finds his skills tested to their limit as he and his erstwhile comrade Dr. John Watson are confronted with the most extraordinary case of their career – the dead are returning to life! Can a plague of Biblical proportions be far behind for Victorian London? And who – or what – is behind the resurrection of these ravenous revenants?
Top 10 is a superhero comic book limited series published by the America’s Best Comics imprint of Wildstorm, itself an imprint of DC Comics. Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Gene Ha and Zander Cannon, the series details the lives and work of the police force of Neopolis, a city in which everyone, from the police and criminals to civilians, children and even pets, has super powers and colourful costumes.
The series follows a squad of super-powered police men and women unlike any other! With a painted cover by Alex Ross (KINGDOM COME, SUPERMAN: PEACE ON EARTH), the extra-sized TOP TEN #1 introduces the heroes and heroines of Precinct 10, Earth’s local branch of an inter-dimensional police force ? as they welcome a rookie member to their ranks. How will this new heroine, code-named Toybox, fit into a tightly-knit group that includes heroes in armor (one of them a talking dog), a scrap-metal robot (and its equally ramshackle inventor) and more?
A miniseries spinning out of the Eisner Award-winning TOP 10!
When Jeff Smax’s beloved uncle passes away, the Top 10 officer is called back to his homeworld with his partner, Robyn “Toybox” Slinger. But what they find is a world filled with magic, spells and bizarre creatures!
The story deals with Smax and Toybox returning, via magical teleportation, to Jeff’s magically enchanted homeworld. Smax, now a city dweller, seems embarrassed by his unsophisticated, sword-and-sorcery roots. They attend Smax’s uncle’s funeral where Jeff introduces Robyn as his wife, though no such relationship exists. At this point we are introduced to Jeff’s sister, Rexa Macksun, dressed in the typical garb of a female fantasy barbarian such as Red Sonya and just as tall and physically impressive as her brother with the same blue skin and white hair.
