MYTHICAL in 2013

Mythical continues in 2013 with three new adventures:

Mythical #4, SHADES OF WAR
The Stone Soldiers of Detachment 1039, the Blacksabers, stand as America's supernatural defenders. Impervious to nearly all conventional weapons, never tiring, never needing sleep- they are an unstoppable force of men turned to living stone by ancient magic.

Killed by the Blacksabers' leader over twenty years ago, Clinton Kerrick has returned from the dead, raising an army of spectres to fight against the living. His army of ghost soldiers are ready to march on Washington and exact their own revenge against the country that killed them.

Can the Blacksabers stand against an ethereal foe that cannot be killed? Or when the South rises again, will it mean the end of America?

Orbiting the earth for millenia, a strange, black construct hangs silently in space, its purpose and creators unknown. Governments of the world have feared the implications of the prehistoric, artificial satellite and have kept its existence a secret.

A coven of witches and their druidic ally bring Black Knight crashing to Earth to harness the dark forces contained within it. The men and women of the U.S. military's Blacksabers detachment must spring into action to combat this threat from space- but this ancient relic may prove too much for the supersoldiers.

Mythical #6, TERRORCOTTA
Buried for millenia in China, under the dirt outside the First Emperor's tomb, the terracotta soldiers were believed to be statues made in honor of Zao Zheng, guarding his eternal resting place. But the truth is far more terrifying.

The People's Republic unlocked the secret of the terracotta army years ago and developed it into a weapon designed to turn the populations of whole cities into hardened clay. Deemed too terrible to use, the Nlai Wan, the Clay Cloud, was locked away in vaults deep underneath the Forbidden City.

Now a renegade General who fancies himself the next great Emperor of China has stolen the Clay Cloud prototypes and moved them to America. There he plans to unleash his alchemical weapons of mass destruction on an unsuspecting populace and trigger a war between China and the United States that he will win, then declare himself First Emperor of the World.

Can America's supersoldiers, the men and women of the Blacksabers detachment stop General Zuo Zhao Zheng without killing millions in the process?
