It’s hard to tell if it’s celebrating or medicating, but on the heels of Rob signing a new lease, he and the boys hit the town hard in an alcohol-fueld swirl. Goth girls, trench coat Mafiosi, jock thugs, and more populate the fourth chapter of BOB FINGERMAN’s so-real-it-hurts series.

Excitement for this new series will Spread

Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm team up for a new science-fiction thriller, Spread, a horrifying story of inevitable death and slim hope. Enthusiasm for Spread will prove infectious and launch with a social media contest. Post the cover image of Spread #1 with the caption “it’s spreading…” and tag @kstrahm and @Justin_Jordan on Twitter and/or Facebook with the hashtag #itsspreading for for a chance to cameo as an extra character in the book, plus other Spread swag. Winners will be revealed on the day of release, July 9.

Ten years ago, humanity dug too deep and unleashed something ancient that couldn’t be controlled. Something that couldn’t be stopped, twisting everything it touched into more of itself. The Spread. Humanity was nearly destroyed before finding a way to slow the Spread to a crawl. Now, deep inside the quarantined zone, one man has found what might be the key to stopping it forever: a baby girl. And if he can save her, he might save the world.

In a release Jordan said:

It’s Lone Wolf and Cub in a world where John Carpenter’s The Thing ate North America. Sean Shields, mostly called ‘No’ in the book—because he’s taciturn enough that it’s most of his dialogue—is one of the survivors. No is ‘Spread-immune,’ unable to be converted by the Spread biomass, and this means he can get closer to the Spread to scavenge useful bits of what used to be civilization—but not without danger.

The Spread itself is comprised of more than just its threat for virulence the creatures that lurk and thrive within it are equally nefarious.

In the same release Strahm said:

I’ve designed piles of crazy organisms that form the Spread ecosystem. [Colorist] Felipe Sobreiro and I have crafted a look for these things that we’re very proud of. From tiny scavengers to massive predators, every creature has a spot on the food chain and looks pretty cool occupying that spot. The organisms least equipped to survive in the Spread are human beings. Gross things happen when they get too close.

SPREAD #1 arrives in stores on 7/9 and is available for $3.50 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code MAY140579.

Following hot on the heels of Dynamite’s Chaos! series relaunch with Tim Seeley, Dynamite has announced another great Chaos! character return – she’s reimagined and ready for blood! Join fan-favorite scribe Marc Andreyko and artist Dave Acosta for the blood-curdling adventures of a girl who is most definitely NOT your father’s vampire!

Dynamite’s Warlord of Mars comic line will hit the 100 issue milestone in April. To celebrate we are bringing you THREE stories by the THREE most prolific writers of recent Barsoomian history, each starring Barsoom’s greatest calot: WOOLA! Beginning with a story by Robert Napton (WARLORD OF MARS: DEJAH THORIS) , taking place 400 years before John Carter’s arrival on Barsoom, where a young Woola discovers an ancient First Born artifact that isn’t quite what it seems. The story continues by Arvid Nelson (WARLORD OF MARS) only to have it recovered by the Warlord himself many years later. What happens to the good people of Helium as the evil power begins to be unleashed? And what could it mean for the rest of Barsoom? Then, in the final chapter by Mark Rahner (DEJAH THORIS AND THE GREEN MEN OF MARS), Woola must do the hardest thing of his life: not protect John Carter. The fiercely loyal calot must resist his strongest instincts to save Carter from horrifying brutality – or pay an infinitely worse price. Includes bonus material!
