We Wicked Ones is a cross between Charmed and The Boys

Twenty years ago, the United States government and the superheroes of F.I.R.E. rounded up and burned every known witch alive. Only two young girls survived.

All grown up, Celia Jordan—now a calloused contract killer in Washington DC—must rescue the only other living witch—her best and only friend, Lily—from the latest incarnation of the superhero task force hunting down witchkind. With Lily’s young son in tow, the sins of Celia’s past will come back to haunt her as she finds herself locked in a harrowing game of cat-and-mouse with superheroes, vengeful politicians, and old friends, all while on a rescue mission of which failure means certain death.

We Wicked Ones is written by LJ Duey, with art by Paulo Mel, colors by Ander Zárate, lettering by crank!, cover by David Mack, edited by Andrea Lorenzo Molinari, and designed by Sean Callahan. It’s out in March 2023 from Scout Comics.

The Plot To Destroy ALL Transformers Has Begun!

This August, General Joe Colton, the original G.I. JOE, will take the fight directly to the Transformers home world of Cybertron in the Hasbro Comic Book Event of 2017 – First Strike!

This six-part, bi-weekly series will feature the talents of writers Mairghread Scott and David A. Rodriguez, with art by Max Dunbar, and colors by Ander Zarate.

Earth’s heroes have united after the explosive events of last year’s Revolution! Bringing together G.I. Joe, Rom, the Micronauts, M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand, Action Man, and the Transformers, Earth has never been more secure now that it has become a member of the Council of Worlds due to Optimus Prime’s leadership.

But oversight and control isn’t what everyone wants; especially when that control is in the hands of alien forces…

The premiere season of post-Revolution titles are heading towards their natural conclusions to make room for First Strike so fans can enjoy the action in one place (and go easy on their wallets during the event)! In addition to the main series, six additional one-shots will set the stage for the second season of the Hasbro comic universe, where fans will witness their favorite characters forming new alliances, paving the way for exciting adventures to come.

Look for Micronauts: First Strike, by Christos Gage and Chris Panda, G.I. Joe: First Strike, by Aubrey Sitterson and Ilias Kyriazis, and Optimus Prime: First Strike by John Barber and Guido Guidi in September.

M.A.S.K.: MOBILE ARMORED STRIKE KOMMAND.: First Strike, by Aubrey Sitterson and Ilias Kyriazis, Rom: First Strike, by by Christos Gage and Chris Panda, and TRANSFORMERS: First Strike by John Barber and Guido Guidi will follow in October.

These one-shots will explore more corners of the event for completest readers who just can’t get enough, while also providing a glimpse into what the future will bring for our heroes when the dust settles on the scorched planet of Cybertron at the conclusion of First Strike.

The event kicks off in First Strike #0, now available as a GIVEAWAY in comic shops (ask your local retailer) and online. Inside you’ll discover more of what Joe Colton is plotting against the Transformers and what our Earth’s heroes are up against! In the back of the #0 issue, you’ll find a handy checklist for the entire event running through October, as well as a couple new #1s scheduled for November and December titled G.I. Joe: Unmasked and Rom & The Micornauts.
