BLASFAMOUS #1

(W) Mirka Andolfo (A/CA) Mirka Andolfo

From international superstar Mirka Andolfo (Sweet Paprika, Mercy, Unnatural, Harley Quinn, Punchline) comes a new horror comedy that only Andolfo can deliver-asking the question: how many fans is your soul worth?

In a world where pop stars have ascended to divinity, and the masses bow in veneration to a new generation of viral superstars-angels and demons thrive on this exaltation, and revel in this spotlight that grants them unimaginable power.

Clelia, the reigning queen of pop, finds her throne shaken by a newcomer radiating with enigmatic charm. As her fans waver and the public eye threatens to wander, Clelia and her demonic agent, Father Lev, are thrust into a battle for dominance on this exhilarating stage of music and mysticism. How far will they go to defend her reign and unravel the mystery of this sensational new threat?


CEMETERY KIDS DONT DIE #1

(W) Zac Thompson (A/CA) Daniel Irizarri

The 21st century sucks hard, but it’s made somewhat tolerable by the latest and greatest media innovations.

Enter the Dreamwave: the first gaming console played entirely while you sleep. The obsession of millions around the globe, it’s also the one point of solace for four friends known as the “Cemetery Kids,” who spend their nights roaming the endless maps of the most brutal horror game ever created as they seek to dethrone the “King of Sleep” – the Dreamwave’s biggest, baddest, and most mysterious boss. 

Which was fun… until one of them doesn’t wake up and finds their consciousness locked inside a horror game that is anything but imaginary.

Now, the three remaining Cemetery Kids must navigate a forbidden landscape to rescue their friend – and pray that the secret lurking at its center doesn’t follow them home.

Experience the exhilarating, terrifying adventure from critically acclaimed writer Zac Thompson (Hunt for Skinwalker, The Dregs) and blockbuster artist Daniel Irizarri (XINO, Judge Dredd)! 


ZOR #1

(W) Rob Potchak (A) Michael Adams (CA) Owen Gieni

From the creators of Junior High Horrors and Kung Fu Legume comes a heartfelt story that reminds you sometimes the grandest of stories happen in the tiniest of places.

Mourning her mother’s death, young Zoe Robertson is given a gift by her dad to always keep her mom close. However, as children do, she loses it down a sink drain. As she cries, her tears come to life – and Zor is born.

As Zor travels to find the ring, he makes new friends, and must stop the evil Lady Hourglass.

WALKING DEAD UNIVERSE RPG CORE RULEBOOK

This is The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game. The Walking Dead has always been about characters facing impossible choices in an unforgiving world. With this game, you enter into the world of the dead and must face these choices head on. You can do this at any point in the timeline – encountering familiar faces and locations, or new ones – but the hardest choice will always be the same: Who are you going to be?

We have seen many stories set in The Walking Dead Universe – now it’s time to see yours.

In the official The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game, you will play as people struggling to survive in a hostile world. Exceptional challenges can appear from anywhere – from the lack of essential supplies, from conflicts brewing within the group, from hidden construction flaws in your safe haven, or from approaching walkers hungering for your flesh.

In the game, the player characters must not only hone their physical skills, but deeply explore who they truly are – what drives them to go on, what they consider worth fighting for, and what they’re capable of doing, in the best and worst of times. Expect the stress and stakes to be high. The rules are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, pushing the boundaries of the survival genre and making sure that every group can tailor the gaming experience to suit their own interests and play style.


WALKING DEAD UNIVERSE RPG STARTER SET

This boxed set contains everything you need to start playing:

  • A 40-page condensed rulebook. The game rules are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, but further developed and uniquely tailored for The Walking Dead Universe Roleplaying Game.
  • The 16-page booklet The Wolves’ Den – presenting the first full‑length survival mode scenario for the game.
  • Six pre-generated characters to play.
  • Carol, Gabriel, Glenn and Michonne from the TV series as playable pre-generated characters.
  • A double-sided area map in format 558 mm × 432 mm, depicting an area north of Atlanta, Georgia, and a region in Virginia.
  • Three adventure maps in format 432 mm × 279 mm, showing locations in The Wolves’ Den scenario.
  • Ten custom Base Dice and as many Stress Dice, specifically designed for the game.
  • A Threat Meter, to keep track of the threat from walkers in the surroundings.

WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE 5TH EDITION CORE RULEBOOK

Available later this week!

Gaia is dying. The ices melt, while the seas swell. The heat rises, while the forests wither. Extinction threatens millions, in favor of the few. The Garou — warlike shapeshifters torn be­tween Rage and spirit, between Wolf and Man, and champions of the earth-mother — have failed. The Apocalypse is here.

Yet, a new generation of Garou now call upon their Rage to confront the forces of destruction, avarice, and greed ravaging the earth-mother. With tooth and claw the Garou will wrest her from the brink of death — or follow her enemies to the grave. Will you answer their howl? What legends will the Garou sing of you? When will you Rage?

  • Utilize the 5th edition Storyteller system to create your chronicles within the World of Darkness.
  • Includes everything you need to know to build your own character or guide a troupe as they explore their new forms.
  • As a werewolf, build your legend, vie for renown, and fight to take back what has been lost.
  • Join one of eleven tribes, each unique and rich with narrative depth for players to explore, and Storytellers to utilize.
