BOOM! Studios in November 2014

DEEP STATE #1

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Justin Jordan
Artist: Ariela Kristantina
Cover Artists: A: Matthew Taylor B: Artyom Trakhanov (INCENTIVE)

WHY WE LOVE IT: You know all those conspiracy theories you hear about? Like how the Jonestown Massacre was a failed MKULTRA experiment by the government, or how Lee Harvey Oswald was trained and brainwashed to be an assassin? Well, what if some of those were true? DEEP STATE is a dream (nightmare?) come true for conspiracy theory nuts like us here at BOOM!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: With LUTHER STRODE, DEAD BODY ROAD, and SPREAD, Justin Jordan has become one of the eminent voices in hard-hitting, intelligent, original comics, and Ariela Kristantina (DEATH OF WOLVERINE) brings her unique, idiosyncratic style that has made her a breakout talent. If you’re even remotely interested in conspiracy theory stories from comics like Detective Comics and X-Files to films like ENEMY OF THE STATE and THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, you’ll be gripped by DEEP STATE!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: John Harrow doesn’t exist, and his job is to make sure that other things don’t exist, too. At any given time, the government is running dozens of black book operations, experiments that aren’t on any official record and are never acknowledged to exist. Some of these are innocuous. Some of them are monstrous beyond reason. And most of the time, they go as expected and the public is never the wiser. Most of the time. John Harrow’s job is to handle them when things go wrong, and do anything to make sure the government’s secrets stay just that—secret.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES #1 (of 6)

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Michael Moreci
Artist: Dan McDaid
Cover Artists: A: Christopher Mitten B: Jay Shaw (INCENTIVE) C: Simian Flu Design (INCENTIVE)

WHY WE LOVE IT: BOOM! has a long history with PLANET OF THE APES and for good reason—we love those damn dirty apes. Serving as a perfect tableau to examine society’s ills through the lens of science fiction, we were thrilled to explore those themes in the modern setting of the new films.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Michael Moreci (CURSE, HOAX HUNTERS) and Dan McDaid (MIND THE GAP) bring the hard-bitten world of DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES to life—dealing with both classic and modern POTA questions like what the true meaning of “society” is, and if being “civilized” is even possible in a world wracked with strife. Great for fans of end-of-the-world stories like 12 MONKEYS, THE ROAD, and CHILDREN OF MEN.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Bridging the 10-year gap between the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES films, fans will bear witness to the fall of humanity and the rise of Caesar’s civilization. While the apes of the world have yet to advance as a species, Caesar must find a way to unify in them to one cause. On the other side of the country, Malcom must venture into the decaying Americas with his family to find a cure for the plague slowly killing his wife, Rita. World powers will shift as civilizations collapse and rise.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Becky Dreistadt (ADVENTURE TIME 2014 ANNUAL) and Frank Gibson (THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL) are two of the most clever and visually arresting creators in the business, and this one of their most ambitious projects ever. From the vivid visuals to the rad story and hilarious, heartwarming moments, you’ll love every second in this world.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Grabbed up by the United States government and thrown into training camps, orphans around the country have been raised to become America’s next generation of super-spies.

HIT: 1955 TP

Cover Artist: Vanesa R. Del Rey

WHY WE LOVE IT: You say your crime noir story is based on a group of hard-boiled policemen during 1950s Los Angeles that did a little wetwork under the table, ridding the city of its scummiest residents one lowlife at a time? And it features the art debut of Russ Manning Award for Most Promising Newcomer nominee Vanesa R. Del Rey? Oh, we’re so there.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Noir crime fiction is a part of Americana, from the writing of James Ellroy and Raymond Chandler to the films of Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock. HIT joins titles like TORSO, CRIMNAL, and GOTHAM CENTRAL as a grand contribution to crime noir comics.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: They say the eyes are the window to the soul. You look at Harvey Slater and you’ll see a homicide detective chasing cigarettes with a few fingers of bourbon. You look into his eyes, and you’ll see a hitman who spends his nights making “untouchable” criminals disappear for the Los Angeles Police Department. But all it takes is a blonde bombshell from his past and a crime syndicate trying to muscle in while Mickey Cohen’s in prison to open Slater’s eyes to who he really is. Collects the complete four-issue limited series, features the never-before-seen short story, “Bonnie,” and includes an introduction by author Duane Swierczynski.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Our ADVENTURE TIME original graphic novels are long-form stories that play out like an episode of the animated series. It’s a self-contained story, done in one, and all the fun, plus now it’s in full color. Great if you like our PEANUTS original graphic novels, or fun, all-ages OGNs like MONSTER ON THE HILL and MAX STEEL.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s that lovely time of year where Princess Bubblegum gets to leave the Candy Kingdom and venture out into the outer limits of Ooo. But when her annual quest to visit old friends takes a dark and unexpected turn, it’s up to PB and Peppermint Butler to keep the peace by using the true power of friendship. Written by New York Times bestselling author Kate Leth (ADVENTURE TIME: SEEING RED), and illustrated by New York Times bestselling artist Zachary Sterling (ADVENTURE TIME), BITTER SWEETS is a deliciously twisted adventure with a surprising aftertaste.

REGULAR SHOW: SKIPS TP

Retail Price: $19.99
Author: Mad Rupert
Artist: Mad Rupert
Cover Artist: Mad Rupert

WHY WE LOVE IT: Have you seen Skips? He’s a blue jean-wearing, combover-sporting, white-fur-covered yeti. What’s not to love? Okay, so he also stars in our favorite bro-time cartoon, REGULAR SHOW, with those zany mischiefs Mordecai and Rigby, and he just begged to be in the spotlight for once, so here’s his chance.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: If you’ve ever watched a TV show and wanted to know more about one of the supporting characters, you’ll like REGULAR SHOW: SKIPS. Skips is one of the least vocal characters on the show, so you’ll appreciate he’s the main dude for once, because it’s usually the quiet ones you have to watch out for!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: In an effort to lift morale at the Park, Pops sends Skips, Mordecai, Rigby, and Benson on a vacation of Skips’ choosing, which takes them to…another park? Skips just wants a peaceful few days with nature but this vacation has other plans. Trapped in a day that will never end, Skips must rely on the help of a new friend to stop the park from exploding and hopefully save the world in the process. Written and illustrated by the crazy talented Mad Rupert (SAKANA), this is a REGULAR SHOW adventure you’ll never want to end!

MEMETIC #1 (of 3)

Retail Price: $4.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eryk Donovan
Cover Artists: A: Eryk Donovan B: Meme Variant (INCENTIVE)

WHY WE LOVE IT: After launching James Tynion IV’s THE WOODS to much acclaim, we were eager to see what other ideas he had. When James—one of our favorite new voices in comics—pitched us MEMETIC as a tale of the apocalypse in three parts, we were sold!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: MEMETIC is truly an event comic—three oversized, 48-page issues detailing the end of the world over the course of three days, and a wholly unique take on the disaster genre. Much like his work on THE WOODS, James Tynion IV and fantastic newcomer Eryk Donovan (THE HOUSE IN THE WALL) will bring horror to a whole new generation and fans of J-horror films like UZUMAKI and THE RING.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: A Meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then spreads throughout multiple persons and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme’s success comes from its effectiveness to the host. But history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through society. MEMETIC shows the progression of a weaponized meme that leads to the utter annihilation of the human race within 72 hours. The root of this apocalypse is a single image on the internet, a “meme” in the popular sense. A meme that changes everything.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: One of the most exciting young writers working today, Scott Snyder

protégé Marguerite Bennett is currently writing Archaia’s BUTTERFLY and has worked on DC’s LOBO, SUPERMAN: LOIS LANE, and BATMAN: JOKER’S DAUGHTER. Even if you don’t watch the show, SLEEPY HOLLOW is perfect for fans of SUPERNATURAL. Includes all-new back-up stories from Noelle Stevenson (LUMBERJANES).

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: After dying on the battlefield during the Revolutionary War, Ichabod Crane awakes in present-day Sleepy Hollow, New York. His resurrection is tied to the reappearance of the Headless Horseman, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Realizing it is his mission to help stop the end of the world, Ichabod teams with Lt. Abbie Mills to meet each evil threat head-on. When minor miracles start to sweep the town, they’re glad something good seems to be happening for once. No decapitations, no headless horseman, no worries, right? But as one by one the miracles start to backfire, more and more violently, Abbie and Ichabod must find time between saving the world to save the citizens of Sleepy Hollow…

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: When Nyarlathotep, the crawling chaos himself, devises his most destructive plan yet, a disparate group of humans find themselves brought together as the unavoidable apocalypse draws near.

Authors: Arash Amel and Marguerite Bennett
Artist: Antonio Fuso
Cover Artist: Phil Noto

WHY WE LOVE IT: We’ve all spent hours glued to episodes of shows like True Detective and House of Cards that explore deeply flawed and morally complex characters.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Marguerite Bennett has been making a name for herself with her work on Lois Lane, Batgirl, and Earth 2: World’s End and we can’t wait for fans to see how she explores the dark world of spycraft.

It’s the perfect creative team for a morally complex story of violence and family set in the web of a global conspiracy.

When her cover is blown and she is set up for a murder she did not commit, she is unknowingly led to her father’s doorstep, a man she thought died 20 years ago. Codenamed Nightingale, her father was once a member of the very same Project Delta, a spy in the violent aftermath of the Cold War, and believes they are behind her set-up. Trained to trust nothing and no one, Butterfly must decide whether to seek answers with the Project, or believe the man who betrayed her years ago.

THE WOODS VOL. 1 TP

Retail Price: $9.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Michael Dialynas
Cover Artist: Michael Dialynas

WHY WE LOVE IT: As fans of James Tynion IV’s work in the Batman universe (Batman Eternal, Red Hood and the Outlaws), we were eager to publish his first original comic series. THE WOODS gives us that same eerie, small-town horror feel we get whenever we read a Stephen King novel.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: James Tynion IV is a former protege of Batman writer Scott Snyder, so you know he’s learned a lot about how to craft a compelling tale. If you’re fan of teen conspiracy comics like Morning Glories, Sheltered, and Revival, you’ll immediately be sucked into THE WOODS.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: On October 16, 2013, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Preparatory High School in suburban Milwaukee, WI vanished without a trace. Countless light years away, far outside the bounds of the charted universe, 513 people find themselves in the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness. Where are they? Why are they there? The answers will prove stranger than anyone could possibly imagine. Collects issues #1-4 of the critically acclaimed series.

When the Sons of Anarchy realize tshe’s the estranged daughter of an old member, Tig rallies the club to offer protection.
