Baghdad, 2003. The reign of Saddam Hussein is over. The Americans are in command. And no one is in control. Former cop turned military contractor Christopher Henry knows that better than anyone. HeÕs in the country to train up a new Iraqi police force, and one of his recruits has just been murdered. With civil authority in tatters and dead bodies clogging the streets, Chris is the only person in the Green Zone with any interest in finding out who killed him-and why. ChrisÕ inquiry brings him first to Sofia, an American-raised Iraqi who now sits on the governing council, and then to Nassir, a grizzled veteran of SaddamÕs police force-and probably the last real investigator left in Baghdad. United by death but divided by conflicting loyalties, the three must help each other navigate the treacherous landscape of post-invasion Iraq in order to hunt down the killers. But are their efforts really serving justice-or a much darker agenda? Inspired by his real-life experiences as a CIA operations officer in Iraq, writer Tom King (BATMAN) teams with artist Mitch Gerads to deliver a wartime crime thriller like no other in THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON VOL. 1: BANG. BANG. BANG., collecting issues #1-6 of their groundbreaking Vertigo series.

The celebrated series THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON by Tom King continues and follows a Florida cop turned military consultant. Chris came to Iraq in the aftermath of the 2003 American invasion to train a new generation of post-Saddam police. But the murder of one of his recruits has uncovered a vast web of secrets and lies-one that ties the old regime, the new government, the American military, the criminal underworld and the jihadist network together in a nightmarish tangle of death and deception. Fortunately, Chris isn’t cutting through the chaos alone. Old-school Baghdad cop Nassir and political power player Sofia each have their own reasons to see the murderer brought to justice. Together, the trio has tracked down the man responsible: the lethal insurgent commander Abu Rahim. Now, as the investigation builds to its explosive climax and their diverging agendas begin to pull them apart, Chris, Nassir and Sofia are about to discover that nothing about the murder, the mastermind or the men behind the scenes is truly as it seems. Written by rising comics star and CIA veteran Tom King (BATMAN) and gorgeously illustrated by Mitch Gerads, THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON VOL. 2: POW. POW. POW. brings one of the decade’s most critically acclaimed series to its stunning conclusion. Collects issues #7-12.

He’s the one man who broke the Bat. He rules the island prison that once held him captive with an iron fist. He is Bane, and he has something-or someone-that Batman needs. And Batman will risk a suicide mission to take it, or them, from him. But to infiltrate the stronghold of a criminal genius, the Dark Knight will need to raise his own army of criminals. From the bowels of Arkham Asylum, he’ll select an elite squad of the craziest, deadliest, most dangerous villains alive-including Catwoman, the one woman in the world who knows him best, despite the blood on her claws. But Batman’s makeshift Suicide Squad is every bit as unstable as the real deal. As lust, addiction, insanity and betrayal take their toll on his team, not everyone will make it out of Bane’s fortress alive and unbroken… New York Times best-selling writer Tom King (THE OMEGA MEN) continues his groundbreaking Dark Knight saga, joined by artists Mikel Janín (GRAYSON) and Mitch Gerads (SHERIFF OF BABYLON). Collects BATMAN #9-15.

Taking the form of two companion volumes, Police Courts in Nineteenth-Century Scotland represents the first major investigation into the administration, experience, impact and representation of summary justice in Scottish towns, c.1800 to 1892. Each volume explores diverse, but complementary, themes relating to judicial practices, relationships, experiences and discourses through the lens of the same subject matter: the police court. Volume 1, with the subtitle Magistrates, Media and the Masses, provides an institutional, social and cultural history of the establishment, development and practice of police courts. It explores their rise, purpose and internal workings, and how justice was administered and experienced by those who attended them in a variety of roles. Special attention is given to examining how courtroom discourse was represented in print culture, the role of the media in providing a discursive commentary on summary justice, and the ways in which magistrates and the police engaged in a law and order dialogue with the press. Throughout, consideration is given to uncovering the relationship between magistrates, the courts, the police and the wider community, and to charting the implications of the rise of summary justice and the ’police-man’ state for the urban masses (as evidenced through prosecution, conviction and punishment patterns). Volume 2, with the subtitle Boundaries, Behaviours and Bodies, explores, through themed case studies, how police courts shaped conceptual, spatial, temporal and commercial boundaries by regulating every-day activities, pastimes and cultures.

Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Doc Holliday—such are the legendary names that spring to mind when we think of the western gunfighter. But in the American West of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, thousands of grassroots gunfighters straddled both sides of the law without hesitation. Deadly Dozen tells the story of twelve infamous gunfighters, feared in their own times but almost forgotten today. Now, noted historian Robert K. DeArment has compiled the stories of these obscure men. DeArment, a life-long student of law and lawlessness in the West, has combed court records, frontier newspapers, and other references to craft twelve complete biographical portraits. The combined stories of Deadly Dozen offer an intensive look into the lives of imposing figures who in their own ways shaped the legendary Old West. More than a collective biography of dangerous gunfighters, Deadly Dozen also functions as a social history of the gunfighter culture of the post-Civil War frontier West. As Walter Noble Burns did for Billy the Kid in 1926 and Stuart N. Lake for Wyatt Earp in 1931, DeArment—himself a talented writer—brings these figures from the Old West to life. John Bull, Pat Desmond, Mart Duggan, Milt Yarberry, Dan Tucker, George Goodell, Bill Standifer, Charley Perry, Barney Riggs, Dan Bogan, Dave Kemp, and Jeff Kidder are the twelve dangerous men that Robert K. DeArment studies in Deadly Dozen: Twelve Forgotten Gunfighters of the Old West.
