THE DEVIL YOU KNOW…
While searching the Xenomorph-infested Tobler-9 for an alien sample that can save humanity, “Steel Team,” the mythical Synthetic Special Operations team, has made a shocking discovery: a colony of humans who have managed to survive there for decades. With only their mutual mistrust in common, the humans and synths strike an uneasy bargain: the alien sample in exchange for Steel Team’s help in clearing a subterranean Xenomorph nest. But while the humans have had to sacrifice some of their humanity to survive, Steel Team learns that the ICARUS alien strain has taken on some disturbingly HUMAN tendencies…

NOTHING ORGANIC EVER TANGLED WITH US AND WALKED AWAY.
“Steel Team,” the legendary, unkillable Synthetic Special Operations team, has been reactivated. Sent to an abandoned Weyland-Yutani outpost to recover a project that now could save millions, Steal Team is the United Systems’ only hope as they navigate the hellscape that the once-idyllic Tobler-9 has become.

Rich Douek and Alex Cormack Reunite for Breath of Shadows

Following two heavily lauded previous collaborations, Road of Bones and Sea of Sorrows, the Bram Stoker Award–nominated creative team Rich Douek and Alex Cormack will reunite for a third dark entry in their shared oeuvre with Breath of Shadows, debuting in February 2023 from IDW Publishing. The five-issue comic book miniseries follows an internationally famous rock singer whose desperate attempt to cure his heroin addiction leads him deep into the jungles of South America, where he discovers primal horrors that put his own inner demons to shame. It will also feature work from Douek and Cormack’s returning letterer, Justin Birch, who worked with the team previously on both Bones and Sorrows.

It’s 1968. On the fast track to becoming one of his era’s most iconic rock stars, Jimmy Meadows should be basking in the glow of newly acquired wealth and fame. Instead, crushed by the weight of a debilitating heroin addiction, Jimmy is on the verge of losing everything—until an old friend tips him off to an unorthodox treatment method hidden in the depths of the South American jungle. With fair-weather friends, local opportunists, and industry sycophants in tow, Jimmy sets off in search of what he’s sure will be a miracle cure. But as the excursion veers off course and the realities of their environment begin to bleed together with Jimmy’s paranoia and drug-induced hallucinations, the team quickly descends into a nightmare of bloody chaos populated by unspeakable horrors that surpass even the most brutal drug trip.

Breath of Shadows #1 will be available with three variant covers for fans and retailers to enjoy, including Cover A by series artist Alex Cormack, Cover B by Björn Barends, and a retailer incentive cover by multi–Eisner Award winner Francesco Francavilla.
