LAST MERMAID #1 – The incredible Harvey, Ignatz, and Eisner Award winning cartoonist Derek Kirk Kim makes his return to comics with a sprawling sci-fi fable that has to be seen to be believed! A literal fish-out-of-water story, The Last Mermaid is a post-apocalyptic adventure that has been described as “Dune meets mermaids” and is perfect for fans of lush, animation-style artwork like that of LowIsola, and classic Miyazaki!

WHITE BOAT #1 – From Scott Snyder and Francesco Francavilla – the acclaimed creative team behind Detective Comics and Night of the Ghoul comes a modern horror classic for fans of Hereditary, The Host, Jurassic Park and The Island Of Dr. Moreau! White Boats are mega-yachts that the super-rich use as off-shore havens for their every desire. Getting invited on board one should be a dream come true… unless you end up trapped and transported you to a remote island where ancient secret cults work on something called “The Human Project.” Does the White Boat ship you to paradise or sink you into hell on earth? A bi-monthly white-knuckle descent into Lovecraftian maritime madness!

NOMADS THE SKY KINGDOM BOOK 01 OGN – One Piece meets Hooky!

TMNT UNTOLD DESTINY OF FOOT CLAN #1 – Oroku Karai spent her life in the shadow of lesser men like her father, then her grandfather, Oruku Saki, the so-called “Shredder.” But no more. Now the Foot Clan is hers to command, and she has grand designs on seeing her clan reach its full potential. As she and those loyal to her set out to master the ancient way of the ninja, she’ll discover that she’s not the only one who lays claim to the Foot Clan’s destiny.

TRUE HORROR MYSTERIES: BABYSITTER KILLER – With true crime podcasts and documentaries having never been more popular, now the True Horror Mysteries anthology series pulls back the curtain on crimes like The Babysitter Killer, taking a closer look at the victims’ stories along with those of the suspects linked to their stories. Nearly 50 years ago, the youth of Oakland County, Michigan fell prey to the twisted whims of a killer who abducted and murdered at least four children between 1976 and 1977. To this day, no suspect has ever been brought to justice. 

TAKA GN – A new YA graphic novel for fans of the Kamen Rider series. Taka is no hero. The Notorious Delinquent has a bit of a reputation in her city, but after she accidentally unleashes a horde of evil robots, she begrudgingly takes up the mantle of MECH FIGHTER! Armed with special abilities, Taka sets out to recapture all the robots and seal them back up, playing protector to a city of people who previously couldn’t care less about her. While the popularity of the Mech Fighter grows with every adventure, Taka does her best to keep her identity a secret. Because, after all, she has a reputation to keep!

NIGHT PEOPLE #1 – From the mind of literary icon Barry Gifford – internationally renowned creator of Wild at Heartand cowriter of David Lynch’s neo-noir masterpiece Lost Highway – Night People is a pulsating roadmap of the American subconscious, where neon-lit Southern nights give way to lipstick, sweat, and blood, and the odd, the innocent, and the evil are all fellow travelers down an interstate of dark, elusive dreams. 

Adapted from Gifford’s acclaimed novel by breakout writer Chris Condon (That Texas Blood, The Enfield Gang Massacre) and a rotating cast of stunning artistic talents-including Brian Level (Poison Ivy), Alexandre Tefenkgi (The Good Asian), Artyom Topilin (I Hate This Place), and more-follow an uneasy cast of wanted men, cartel-killers, and lost souls through four interlocking tales as they travel a path of intoxication, lust, and spontaneous violence from New Orleans to Egypt City, Florida, and back again.

In this first tale of desperation, fanaticism, and murder: Two ex-convicts – a pair of inseparable lovers named Big Betty Stalcup and Miss Cutie Early-are out on parole using their newfound freedom to purify the world of men’s evil influence… and leaving a trail of mutilated bodies in their wake. As the psychotic dimensions of their star-crossed romance – and the twisting paths that first led them to their fateful meeting at the Fort Sumatra Detention Center for Wayward Women – come into full view, their experiment in righteousness culminates in the kidnapping of Rollo Lamar, a kindly attorney whom Betty and Cutie abduct just to see if they can reeducate at least one man on the planet before the demise of civilization.

To stay ahead of the secret government organization that is trying to find them, Anne and Thomas move from one town to the next, never staying anywhere too long. They live off the grid and assume fake identities when needed. Against her better judgment, Anne enrols Thomas into a public school where his secret slips. This catches the attention of a covert team who want the young boy for their own corrupt use.

TORPEDO 1972 #1 – From the co-creator and artist of Eisner Winning Series 100 Bullets comes a reimagining of the crime noir Torpedo!

In the 1930s, Lucas Torelli, known as “Torpedo”, was a legend of the suburbs of New York. A tough, trigger-happy Sicilian who only knew how to make friends-anyone else is no longer here to say otherwise. Nearly forty years later, the Big Apple has changed quite a bit. Torpedo, not so much. As a persistent journalist prepares to write an article about the Caputo family, the demons of Torpedo’s past resurface, along with his dirty old habits…
