Got a race of bottom-line-worshipping alien bureaucrats draining an entire sun of its power to feed their lust for profits, damning a whole solar system to death? You might be in need of a Fear Agent, extreme alien exterminators, like Heath Huston, to set the record straight. Sure he's usually half in a bottle of whiskey, can't shoot all that straight anymore, and cusses enough to make little green men blush, but in a universe this messed up, he's just the man for the job.
A compilation of tales from the Fear Agent universe, starring work from creators such as Chris Burnham (Batman), Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire), Kieron Dwyer (XXXombies), Francesco Francavilla (Archie), Ivan Brandon (VS), Eric Nguyen (Halo), and many more!
The Paston Treasure, a spectacular painting from the 1660s now held at Norwich Castle Museum, depicts a wealth of objects from the collection of a local landed family. This deeply researched volume uses the painting as a portal to the history of the collection, exploring the objects, their context, and the wider world they occupied. Drawing on an impressive range of fields, including history of art and collections, technical art history, musicology, history of science, and the social and cultural history of the 17th century, the book weaves together narratives of the family and their possessions, as well as the institutions that eventually acquired them. Essays, vignettes, and catalogue entries comprise this multidisciplinary exposition, uniting objects depicted in the painting for the first time in nearly 300 years.
