The Uniques Tales is a companion short story series to The Uniques, featuring characters and events from throughout the Uniques universe - past, present, and perhaps even future.

In 1939, the first person with superhuman powers was discovered. Since then, these "Uniques" have made an indelible mark on society. Some have become heroes and villains, icons and legends, while others have simply wanted normal lives like anyone else.

Collected herein are the first chapters of the Uniques Tales—stories spanning more than a half century, telling the history of the uniques and of our relationship with them. From a lonely Irish cliff side to a quiet Los Angeles hospital bed; from the McCarthy era to civil rights marches; from the second World War to the Cold War—these are the stories that shaped the world of The Uniques.

Husband and Wife creators Comfort Love and Adam Withers team up with a collection of amazing creative talent from across the comic spectrum to bring you the first volume of The Uniques Tales, telling the history of a world where the super is common, but heroes are not.

Collects #1 - #9 of The Uniques Tales.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
