Caliber Comics’ Releases in August 2018
NOWHERE – Volume One
A fantasy-horror story in the style of Alice in Wonderland with a touch of Stranger Things about a girl whose dreams are literally becoming real.

A world of blight and ruin, inhabited by a dark entity that pursues her relentlessly. Once these were passed off as disturbed childhood dreams, she soon finds figments of her nightmares bleeding into the waking world. And as she becomes further trapped in her dreams, Abigail finds that this strange world is far more dangerous and complex than she could have ever imagined. Collects issues #1-6. Color. A Diamond Spotlight Title. DIAMOND # JUN181615 $18.99.
