DEVIANT #1 (OF 9) – A pitch-black holiday horror story from multiple Eisner Award-winning writer James Tynion IV (W0RLDTR33, The Department of Truth) and acclaimed artist Joshua Hixson (The Plot, Children of the Woods). In the snowy winter of 1972, a blood-stained Santa Claus commits unimaginable atrocities against young men in Milwaukee. 50 years on, a troubled young writer interviews this so-called “Deviant Killer,” who still maintains his innocence from behind bars. And as Christmas approaches once more, the past returns, wielding a sharpened axe. 

ZAWA #1 (OF 5) – A macabre eco-fable from GLAAD Award-winning and Eisner Award-nominated cartoonist Michael Dialynas (Wynd, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). The guardian spirit Zawa has been trapped inside her mountain by pollution-spewing factories, forced to subsist on industrial waste, leading to a bitter existence of paranoia and destruction. But when two siblings from a nearby village help her escape, they’ll quickly learn that the way to calming Zawa’s heart is through a well nourished stomach!

STAR WARS VISIONS PEACH MOMOKO #1 (ONE-SHOT) – Raised by a cult that worships a late, great Dark Sith Lord who died centuries ago, Ankok is certain that she is the successor to this legacy! But is she truly in tune with the Force? Or is she just exploiting the people in her village? Peach Momoko brings her unique storytelling to a galaxy far, far away!

MORTAL TERROR #1 – Christopher Golden, Tim Lebbon, and Peter Bergting reinvent Dracula in this species-flippedhorror comic in which mortality means life… and life means death. Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, and Mina Murray are vampires living in underground London, trying to keep their undead city safe from the mythical mortals above who seek to give them life, only to kill them. But the authorities refuse to believe that mortals are real, leaving these three on their own to protect their city from these dangers, including the mysterious Count Dracula…

PETROL HEAD #1 – The Iron Giant meets Mad Max: Fury Road in a pedal-to-the-metal, action-packed science-fictionseries from bestselling writer Rob Williams (Suicide Squad) and superstar artist Pye Parr (2000 AD). In a climate crisis-ravaged future, a grumpy, old and obsolete, smoke-belching, cigar-chomping, hotrod-racing robot is one pre-teen girl’s only hope. Can they outrace the chasing Robo-Cops with an invention that might just save humanity?
