Lenny Zero & The Perps of Mega-City One (Judge Dredd) by Andy Diggle (2000 AD 15 February 2011 / $17.99) - Product Description: It takes a special kind of criminal to survive on the mean streets of Mega-City One. Here are some of the best.

Meet Lenny Zero; an ex undercover Judge whose always one step ahead of the game, playing mobsters and the law alike.

Slick Dickens, master criminal and style trendsetter is always ahead of the pack. He kills good and looks even better – but can any real person ever be this cool?

In the Big Meg's Barrio Blocks, they call Carlito Agarra the 'Bato Loco' or 'crazy guy'! Carlito is just trying to make a few dishonest creds, but that's not so easy when both the mob and the judges are always on your back. (Source: 2000 AD)

Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke (First Second 01 February 2011 / $10.99) - Product Description: Zita's life took a cosmic left turn in the blink of an eye.
When her best friend is abducted by an alien doomsday cult, Zita leaps to the rescue and finds herself a stranger on a strange planet. Humanoid chickens and neurotic robots are shocking enough as new experiences go, but Zita is even more surprised to find herself taking on the role of intergalactic hero. Before long, aliens in all shapes and sizes don't even phase her. Neither do ancient prophecies, doomed planets, or even a friendly con man who takes a mysterious interest in Zita's quest.

Zita the Spacegirl is a fun, captivating tale of friendship and redemption from Flight veteran Ben Hatke. It also has more whimsical, eye-catching, Miyazaki-esque monsters than you can shake a stick at.
