The Infinite Loop Gets a Deluxe Hardcover Edition

IDW Publishing is proud to present The Infinite Loop in a deluxe hardcover edition, arriving this April. The first series from co-creators Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet was honored by the Virginia Library Association Graphic Novel Diversity Award, who called it: “a fun melding of science fiction, romance, LGBTQ+ advocacy fiction, and civil rights history lesson.”

Teddy, a young woman who lives in a faraway future where time traveling is common practice, has a job maintaining the status quo by correcting time paradoxes. But when she meets Ano, a living paradox and the girl of her dreams, Teddy must decide between fixing the time stream and the love of her life, both of which have unique consequences.

The imaginative series has spawned a follow-up series which is currently being published by IDW called The Infinite Loop: Nothing But the Truth.

The Infinite Loop, Vol. 1 Deluxe Edition will collect the debut six-issue series. This oversized, deluxe hardcover edition contains an all-new essay by Emma Houxbois. It is now available for pre-order and will go on sale this April.

THE WILDS #1

Written by: Vita Ayala
Illustrated by: Emily Pearson
Colored by: Marissa Lousie
Cover A by: Emily Pearson
Cover B by: Natasha Alterici
In Stores: February 2018
$3.99
36 pages

After a cataclysmic plague sweeps across America, survivors come together to form citystate-like communities for safety.

Daisy Walker is a Runner for The Compound, a mix of post-apocalyptic postal service and black market salvaging operation. It is a Runner’s job to ferry items and people between settlements, and on occasion scavenge through the ruins of the old world. Daisy is the best there is at what she does.

Out beyond the settlement walls are innumerable dangers: feral animals, crumbling structures, and Abominations — those that were touched by the plague and became something other. After a decade of surviving, Daisy isn’t phased by any of it — until her lover, another Runner named Heather, goes missing on a job. Desperate to find her, Daisy begins to see that there may be little difference between the world inside the walls and the horrors beyond.

From writer Vita Ayala (Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, Wonder Woman Annual) and Emily Pearson (Cult Classic) with colors by Marissa Louise (Spell On Wheels) and covers by Natasha Alterici (Heathen), comes this bold tale of surviving in bleak times.

$3.99
36 pages

From the critically acclaimed writers of The Dregs and the artist of Image Comics’ SEX comes a new horror series about body image, social media, and memory.

When an entrepreneur with a god complex creates a technology that allows two minds to share one body, he doesn’t anticipate the degenerative effects of long-term trials. Come Into Me is a contemporary comment on connected culture and our longing for approval in the digital age.

This is a world where technology and flesh become indistinguishable, begging the question, “How much sharing is too much sharing?”

Prepare yourself for the insane lovechild of The Fly and Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind.

When do you know you’ve made it?
When your song first plays on the radio?
When a kid recognizes you at the laundromat?
When you start getting fan mail?
How about on your first tour, or the second; your first magazine cover feature, your first show played while high out of your mind, your first groupie hookup?
For Nicky, it might just be his first drunken confession in a hotel room that alters the path of his friendship forever.

From Holly Interlandi on scripts and Sally Cantirino on pencils and inks, Last Song returns with the second of its four oversized issues telling the heartbreaking story of two best friends who let music change them for better and for worse.

Beautiful Canvas is 2017’s smash hit warped crime miniseries about Lon Eisley discovering the similarities and differences between her job as a hitwoman and her new role as a mother-to-be when she finds out her girlfriend is pregnant.

From the creative team of Sami Kivela (Abbott) and Ryan K Lindsay (Negative Space, Eternal, DC Writers Workshop) comes this gonzo world of future noir, where the story aims to deliver a brutal blow to your heart and piss in your brainpan.

Cover by DAVID MACK

Out of the pages of 4001 A.D., the breakout hero of the 41st century charges onward in an high-powered tale of tomorrow from New York Times best-selling writer Fred Van Lente (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG) and high-octane artists Stephen Segovia (NINJAK, Action Comics) and Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR)!

Two millennia from today, Earth is not the hospitable home we once knew.

Now, under the leadership of the lone protector called WAR MOTHER and her sentient sniper rifle, the denizens of The Grove face a critical choice: remain where they are and die, or find a new land and flourish. Can War Mother lead her people out of isolation and reignite the fires of a dying planet? And even if she can locate the distant citadel she seeks, can she fight back the horrors and perverse monstrosities that lurk just beyond her doorstep?

In the footsteps of RAI and BOOK OF DEATH, raw power meets tribal warfare as Fred Van Lente & Stephen Segovia forge a modern myth of the near future through the fire-tempered frontier of 41st century Earth for Valiant’s next stunning science-fiction showdown!
