In Dark Engine a savage woman seeks her destiny against all odds

Ryan Burton teams up with John Bivens for an all-new ongoing series that blends elements of dark fantasy and action with mystery.

With ribsword in hand, with gore in her curling locks, Sym has been sent to the distant past to murder her creators’ enemies. But the twisted alchemists who made Sym do not know that the engine that powers her is sentient, that it is the seed of their destruction. By blood and by fury, Sym will carve out her destiny in this new ongoing series.

Dark Engine is about the evil things that lurk inside us all. “Some drive us, some are alive and thinking. And Sym will learn just exactly what drives her, and why she was sent back in time to essentially murder anything standing,” explained Burton. “Of course, John [Bivens] does a brilliant job of capturing the enormous scope of the story, whether it’s showing the stygian machinations of Sym’s creators or the harrowing vistas that are littered with the husks of old Lovecraftian monsters, it’s all there.”

Dark Engine #1 arrives in stores on 7/16, and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140574.

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.
