Orcs: Forged for War by Stan Nicholls and Joe Flood (First Second 11 October 2011 / $17.99) - Product Description: Orcs: Forged for War is the first graphic novel in Stan Nicholls' beloved Orcs universe. The fantasy landscape in this world is brutal and unforgiving, and populated by a race of unlikely protagonists: the powerful and violent warriors, orcs.

Orcs: Forged for War is an original story—a new entry in this series, not an adaptation of old material. It follows a ruthless and deadly cohort of warrior orcs as they fight their way free of the dominion of an evil human enchantress. Sitting on an exhilarating peak with high fantasy on one side and the thrilling, gruesome battlefields of graphic novel classics like Frank Miller's 300 on the other, Orcs presents the world of its ogre-like protagonists with technicolor violence and moments of unexpected sympathy.

Dear Creature by Jonathan Case (Tor Books 11 October 2011 / $15.99) - Product Description: Deep beneath the waves, a creature named Grue broods. He no longer wants to eat lusty beachgoers, no matter how their hormones call to him. A chorus of crabs urges him to reconsider. After all, people are delicious. But this monster has changed. Grue found Shakespeare's plays in cola bottles and through them, a new heart. Now he yearns to join the world above.

When his first attempt ends...poorly, Grue searches for the person who cast the plays into the sea. What he finds is love in the arms of Giulietta--a woman trapped in her own world. When she and Grue meet, Giulietta believes her prayers are answered. But people have gone missing and Giulietta's nephew is the prime suspect. With his past catching up to him, Grue must decide if becoming a new man means ignoring the monster he was.
