any you've seen before. As part of the MAX line, the kid gloves are off and the bullets are flying. Manco's

Apache Kid is dead, gunned down in an ambush by a pack of cowards. Now his friend Johnny Bart, the
Rawhide Kid, rides the vengeance trail to make the killers pay. But someone else is also hunting those
murderers, someone who may have a claim to the title of Apache Kid! And little do they know that another
man hunts them all. There are those who will make one last run, one last fight, to stand free and tall in the
mountains under the wide blue Apache Skies!
* THE WRITER SPEAKS: "This is a chance to show violence even more realistically," explained
Ostrander. "Why is that a good thing? Because showing it sanitised makes it too easy, makes it more
glamorous. I want the violence to feel brutal."

Diamond Select Toys
ULTIMATE WOLVERINE BUST
A Diamond Select Release! Sculpted by Rudy Garcia and designed in conjunction with Adam Kubert,
Ultimate Wolverine is the fifth in DST's Ultimate X-Men line. Rudy Garcia has captured all the aspects of
Wolverine's personality; the seething anger just beneath the surface can be seen in his eyes. He is
poised ready to burst into action. Is he friend or foe? Forget all you know about Wolverine and the X-Men,
this is Ultimate X-Men, updated and brought forth for a new generation of fans! The claws and attitude are
still there, but Logan is bulked up and ready to make a play for Jean Grey. That still mysterious past is
never far from the X-Men's thoughts. Is he here to hunt down the X-Men, or to work beside them? Has he
left Magneto's side, or is he in deep cover waiting for the right moment to shatter Xavier's dream? This
piece is in scale with the rest of the Ultimate line, and measures 7" tall including the display base
featuring the Ultimate X-Men logo. The box features art by series artist Adam Kubert, colored by Rich
Isanove, and inspired by the bust itself. This piece is limited to 6,500 pieces worldwide and features a
full-color, hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Also available as a Special Edition version, limited to
just 500 pieces, each including a Certificate/mini-print, hand-signed by Kubert and Garcia! Guaranteed to
ship in August 2002!
REGULAR-Bust $50.00
LIMITED-Bust $70.00

A Diamond Select Release! The god of mischief has been captured! The illusive half-brother of Thor has
been captured in high detail by master sculptor Shawn Nagle! The third piece in the Avengers &
Adversaries line, this is no "mini-statue!" Loki measures almost 8" in height, from the detailed castle ruin
base to the tips of his curling horns. This is the companion piece to the Thor piece offered in last month's
Previews, and like all pieces in the line, Loki is in scale with Thor, and can be displayed as a companion
piece for the Thunder God or any other hero from the line! Who will win this all-out war between the
Avengers and the villains that have plagued them from their inception?! Limited to 3,000 pieces
worldwide, complete with a full-color, hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Guaranteed to ship in
August 2002!
Statue $85.00

ROGUES' GALLERY: CARNAGE BUST
A Diamond Select Release! Designed and sculpted by the Art Asylum! Wow! Is this a dream come true,
or what!? Carnage, one of Spider-Man's deadliest foes, was a convicted serial killer empowered by the
alien symbiote that created Spidey's other deadly foe, Venom! Sculpted by the inmates of the Art Asylum,
this piece features Carnage ripping free of his padded cell, ready to make Spider-Man pay! Carnage will
not be held back and neither will this piece! Sculpted in exacting detail - including parts of the symbiote
virtually growing out of him - Carnage will not be denied! Will you? Measuring 6" high and limited to 6,500
pieces worldwide, the Carnage Bust includes a full-color, hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Guaranteed to ship in August 2002!
Bust      $45.00
