Gunnerkrigg Court Vol. 1 TP

Imprint: Archaia

Author: Thomas Siddell
Artist: Thomas Siddell

Antimony Carver is a precocious and preternaturally self-possessed young girl starting her first year of school at gloomy Gunnerkrigg Court, a very British boarding school that has robots running around along side body-snatching demons, forest gods, and the odd mythical creature. The opening volume in the series follows Antimony through her orientation year: the people she meets, the strange things that happen, and the things she causes to happen as she and her new friend, Kat, unravel the mysteries of the Court and deal with the everyday adventures of growing up. Available in softcover for the first time!

Max Bemis Writes a Love Letter to ’90s Comics with His New BOOM! Studios Series Oh, Killstrike

BOOM! Studios has announced the May debut of Oh, Killstrike, the new tongue-in-cheek miniseries created and written by Say Anything frontman Max Bemis. Bemis teams up with artist Logan Faerber for a personal story that combines his deep love of ’90s superhero comics and the anxieties that come with being a new dad in a coming-of-age, twisted buddy comedy.

Jared, a new father, fears parenthood. An old comics fan, he turns to them for comfort. But when he unwittingly lets loose his favorite character, Killstrike—a single-minded, vengeance-loving antihero—onto the world, Jared must find a way to send him back before he harms all the people he loves the most. But before that happens, Killstrike leads Jared on a quest of self-discovery to make him realize the kid who loved this character is not the man he has become.

Oh, Killstrike #1 arrives in comic shops on May 20th with a main cover by series artist Logan Faerber for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR151035. Also available in a limited quantity are a 10 Years incentive cover by Frazer Irving and a retailer incentive cover by Kris Anka.
