    Dampyr

    What is the mystery surrounding the birth of Harlan Draka? Who is his father? Why has he always felt different from other guys, who used to call him "the Devil's son" and "blood of spells"? It is during a war that Harlan discovers his true nature. By coming face to face with horror, he discovers he is a Dampyr (or rather, the only Dampyr existing on our planet), and little by little he learns to avail himself of his extraordinary powers, which turn out to be of crucial importance in his struggle against the terrible Maestri della Notte, a family of super-predators each of which has its own hunting grounds and its own pack of non-dead, human beings transformed into vampires and reduced to slavery. This most recent Bonellian series, with Plot and script by Mauro Boselli and Maurizio Colombo, seeks to evoke the dark, brooding horror story atmosphere, laced with magic and the supernatural, but blended with the harsh swift pace of modern action cinema. Shivers down the spine and a pounding heartbeat are definitely in store for those who choose to follow Harlan's adventures…

    Gregory Hunter

    In the tradition of the great "historic" protagonists of our Publishing House (Tex and Zagor, above all), here is a modern protagonist who once again lives a life of Adventure with a capital A. But who is Gregory? Well, the title of the first album already says it all. Gregory belongs to a special corps (the Space Rangers, obviously) that upholds law and justice in a cosmos crammed full of aliens and dire threats of all kinds. In this amazing environment, human beings - the only ones in possession of the secret of hyperspatial motion that lets you travel faster than the speed of light - are a dominating power. A new Frontier, in other words, that calls for men who will shrink at nothing and endowed with enormous experience. And then there's another "character" - yes it's a veritable character although it's only a mechanical object - namely Gregory and Badger's space ship, the "Jolly Roger". Superfast and equipped with a short retractable tower armed with small cannons, the "Jolly Roger" is the only fixed scenario of our heroes' stories, as they travel constantly from one planet to another. And of course, there's no lack of baddies… from Kraken's ruthless star hunters to fiendish criminals who hold sway over entire planets. Gregory will find himself in dire straits quite a few times in endeavouring to re-establish justice so that he can start off again, together with Badger, on his never-ending peregrinations around the cosmos in search of a way to free himself of the curse that weighs heavily on his shoulders...

    Brad Barron

    A hero who has to run away from an implacable foe (the alien race of the Morbs) while desperately trying to find his family, who disappeared during that day in 1956 when the extraterrestrials invaded the Earth. The world where Brad Barron's leading characters act is a place of arrested development, due to the strategic blocking of communication by the alien army. No air transport, neither civil or military, can take off without being shot by the powerful weapons of the Morb spaceships. A 16-issue miniseries, created and written by Tito Faraci, Brad Barron is a homage to many narrative genres— western, war tales, horror, hard-boiled, existential drama, and "on the road" adventure. And, obviously, sci-fi, too!

    Demian

    His name is whispered in awe in Marseilles back alleys, and in many Mediterranean ports. He's feared by criminals, respected and admired by the people he saved the life of. His strange purple eyes are seemingly able to see the thoughts of the people he talks to, and they can make who has a guilty conscience feel uneasy. His past is mostly a mystery, but his body carries a permanent mark of previous experiences. On Demian's chest, just above the heart, there's a scar in the shape of a sword: someone says it's the crest of a legendary knights' class, called “Fraternité”, that Demian could be a member of... An 18-issue miniseries, written by Pasquale Ruju, telling Demian's adventures, in a dark, hard-boiled atmosphere, going from Marseilles to wherever justice is needed.

    Jan Dix

    Lilith

    Lilith is a chronoagent, who's been sent back in time by the mysterious Mandanti to kill famous historical characters, as well as common people. Her travels, with “Lo Scuro” on her side, are not aimed to modify the course of History, but to wipe away a breed of men who are possessed by an alien parasite – called Triacanto –, a "spiromorph" that in a distant future will cause a mass slaughter on our Planet. Lilith doesn't kill randomly. There's a line that goes on through time, marking certain individuals. These individuals are unwittingly carrying the parasite; once Lilith has located it, she makes the Triacanto visible, then gives it a body and extracts it from her victims' corpses to annihilate it.
