Epic is a full color anthology series from Marvel Comics’ creator-owned Epic imprint. Edited by Atomeka’s Dave Elliott (A1), it served as a worthy showcase for some of Epic’s many great titles. The series was printed in a deluxe style format which does a beautiful job of showing off the artistic talents from the various creators.

The four-issues of this series featured stories ranging from horror to action/adventure. The first issue begins with Hellraiser: Birth Rite, wherein Dan Chichester writes of a young couple who try unsuccessfully to conceive a baby. They decide to conjure a demon who is said to aid in conception. The demon does exactly that, just not in the way the couple had pictured. Mark Verheiden’s Stalkers follows with a tense tale of the mercenary police force. These tales are followed by the dinosaur/science-fiction of Dreadlands, and a new adventure featuring Epic’s popular adaptation of the Wildcards characters.
