Katie has always had things pretty easy, growing up in comfortable circumstances in Florida. But when she finds herself with a long summer break before grad school, she decides to do a house-swap with a British girl, Emily, as a way to vacation relatively cheaply—and to get out from under her parents’ attentiveness. England is great, so different from Florida, and the house, called Rowans Rise, is charming. But soon she starts having nightmares—really, really, strong ones. Curious, Katie researches the owners of the house, and discovers it may have more of a sinister history than she thought…

Sell-Outs and New Printing Roundup

Check out some of this week’s announced sell-outs and new printings.

BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce that the first issues of two of its original series, The Spire and Welcome Back, have both sold out at the distributor level. The publisher has rushed to second printings to fill demand.

Welcome Back #1 second print ships with a modified main cover by series artist Jonathan Brandon Sawyer and carries a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond Code AUG158724. The Spire #1 second print ships with a modified main cover by series artist Jeff Stokely and carries a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond Code AUG158723. Orders for both issues close on October 5th, and they are anticipated to be in stores on October 21st.

Christopher Sebela and Jonathan Brandon Sawyer explore the lives of reincarnated assassins in Welcome Back. Mali and Tessa have lived hundreds of different lives throughout time, caught up in an eternal cycle as they take part in a war so old that neither side remembers what they’re fighting for anymore. As Mali wakes up in her newest life, she suddenly becomes self-aware and starts to question everything, especially why she continues to fight.  But elsewhere, Tessa is already on the hunt…

The Six-Gun Gorilla creative team of Si Spurrier and Jeff Stokely reunite in The Spire. The Spire is a mountain of metal and stone that rises from the toxic nowherelands; a city of twisting tunnels, grinding elevators, ancient machinery, and over one million human and non-human residents. Shå, the only citizen of her species, is Commander of the Watch: responsible for keeping order despite the racist views of those around her. When a string of grisly murders occurs on the eve of the new Baroness’s coronation, Shå is tasked with bringing the killer to justice… and picking apart the wider mysteries tangled around the crime. But the city’s new ruler seems sets to usher in a more xenophobic age, and Shå swiftly finds she has far more than one enemy at her back… Oversized first issue with 28 pages of story!

Grant Morrison Unleashes the Definitive Santa Claus: Year One in Original Series Klaus

He is a man with many names: Sinterklaas, Kris Kringle, Saint Nicholas. He has international fame, but only ever appears once a year to defy physics and commit the greatest act of breaking-and-entering known to man. Santa Claus is one of the oldest and most beloved icons around the world, but he’s rarely thought of as a “superhero.” This November, Grant Morrison teams up with homegrown BOOM! Studios artist Dan Mora to change the way we view Jolly Old Saint Nick in the original limited series Klaus.

Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the story of how Santa Claus really came to be. Where did he begin? What was he like when he was young? And what happens when he faces his greatest challenge? Drawing on Santa Claus’ wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism—taking in the creepier side of Christmas, and characters like the sinister Krampus—Klaus is “SantaClaus: Year One.”

Klaus #1 (of 6) arrives in comic shops on November 4th with a main cover by series artist Dan Mora for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code SEP151100. Also available in a limited quality is a 10 Years incentive cover by Felipe Smith, a Jackpot variant cover by Frazer Irving, and a retailer incentive cover by Chris Burnham.
