The four volumes (~950 pages) that comprise this newly released omnibus edition have garnered hundreds of four and five star reviews from fantasy readers around the globe. A gateway to Helheim has opened on Eotrus land. Things are coming through. Things not meant to walk the world of man. Unspeakable, unstoppable evil with an insatiable hunger for blood and souls. Sir Claradon Eotrus assembles an intrepid force of sorcerers and soldiers who risk all they hold dear to hold fast that evil portal. But what is Claradon to do when he discovers that the man he recruited to help him close that gateway is either the greatest hero the world has ever known or the devil himself, thrown down from the heavens by the gods in olden days? Is he out to save Midgaard or destroy it? Does he serve the Norse gods: Odin, Thor, and the rest, or did he betray them? And if he's truly the harbinger of doom, how can Claradon stop him? How can he even survive him? Claradon's Midgaard is a world filled of valiant knights, mysterious sorcerers, ruthless bounty hunters, complex political intrigues, monsters of myth and legend: the undead of this variety and that, gods and demons, and otherworldly evils so frightening you dare not read these books before sleep. But most of all, it's filled with stories that you will always remember, and characters that you will never forget. This omnibus edition contains the first four volumes of the acclaimed Harbinger of Doom series.

Superheroes are enjoying a cultural resurgence, dominating the box office and breaking out of specialty comics stores onto the shelves of mainstream retailers. A leading figure behind the superhero Renaissance is Grant Morrison, long-time architect of the DC Comics’ universe and author of many of the most successful comic books in recent years. Renowned for his anarchic original creations—Zenith, The Invisibles, The Filth, We3—as well as for his acclaimed serialized comics—JLA, Superman, Batman, New X-Men—Grant Morrison has radically redefined the superhero archetype. Known for his eccentric lifestyle and as a practitioner of “pop magic,” Morrison sees the superhero as not merely fantasy but a medium for imagining a better humanity. Drawing on a variety of analytical approaches, this first-ever collection of critical essays on his work explores his rejuvenation of the figure of the superhero as a means to address the challenges of modern life.
