KISS ZOMBIES #1
Writer: Ethan Sacks
Art: Rodney Buchemi
Decades after a zombie invasion has made humans an endangered species, the city of New Detroit is under siege. The people in charge have banned music, as the undead are attracted to sound, and have tried to rid the world of evidence that the greatest band in history have ever existed. Unwilling to live this way and take the leadership at their word, a group of teenagers set out on a dangerous trip to find KISS!
From Ethan Sacks (Old Man Hawkeye, Star Wars) and Rodney Buchemi (Death of Hawkman, Uncanny X-Men) comes a story of survival and rebellion in a post-apocalyptic landscape devoid of rock’n’roll!
VENGEANCE OF VAMPIRELLA #2
Writer: Tom Sniegoski
Art: Michael Sta. Maria
Vampirella Reborn! Savage! Feral! A literal demon thirsting for blood! As humanity raises their greatest hope from the dead, will Pendragon and the rest of our survivors be able to quell the beast that they have unleashed?!?
Originally debuting in 1994, Vengeance of Vampirella portrayed a more savage and feral look at the Daughter of Drakulon. Now, for the 50th Anniversary of Vampirella, original series writer Tom Sniegoski (joined by the incredible art of Michael Sta. Maria) is back and issue #2 features a host of incredible cover artists.
BLACK TERROR #2
Writer: Max Bemis
Art: Ruairi Coleman
The Black Terror faces his most dangerous foe yet…HIPPIES!
A young woman finds herself in the midst of a cult led by a man who claims he can give them all incredible abilities. Find out their link to the Black Terror and their sordid key to their powers!
RED SONJA #10
Writer: Mark Russell
Art: Mirko Colak
The war is being lost. Dragan The Magnificent has taken Hyrkania. Sonja The Red’s options dwindle…the Woodlands will not provide, the Sorcerers cannot help, she doesn’t have enough soldiers to fight back. But what if the fight isn’t a fight? What if it’s…a race?
The ongoing epic continues by Mark Russell (Riddler: Year Of The Villain, Sinestro: Year Of The Villain) and Mirko Colak (Conan).
BARBARELLA TP VOLUME 3: BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE
Writer: Mike Carey
Art: Kenan Yarar
Barbarella has been lied to. Worse, she’s been weaponized, and someone’s going to answer for that, for sure. (Well, assuming she survives the judgment of the Esseverine sun-giants, and an armada of a thousand ships…).
Writer: Garth Ennis
Art: Rob Steen
At the dawn of time, Erf and his three amphibious friends, Figwillop, KWAAAH, and the Booper, take their first nervous steps out of the ocean, the beginning of an adventure into the primordial world. As they explore the exciting new lands beyond the shore, they discover that the prehistoric jungle is home to the mighty and terrifying Colossux. What follows is an evolutionary fable of love and loyalty for readers of all ages!
