Project: MK-Ultra Vol. 1 Goes Pack to Press

Clover Press is going back to press on the sold-out Project MK-Ultra: Sex, Drugs and the CIA. Permeating pop culture over the decades, Project MK-Ultra has been a favorite conspiracy theory with a wide range of speculation. Was this merely an experiment in brainwashing and interrogation, or was it something even more nefarious, as depicted in media like Stranger Things, The X-Files, The Manchurian Candidate, and American Ultra?

Based on and adapted from the film screenplay by Brandon Beckner and Scott Sampila, the graphic novel is by Stewart Kenneth Moore.

The first and second volumes can be pre-ordered from Diamond Comics Distribution, Diamond Books Distribution, and Lunar Distribution. The expected in-store date is October 26, 2022. Check out our review of the first volume.

The Closet #1

Wednesdays (and Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

After Lambana: Myth and Magic in Manila (Tuttle Publishing) – It’s a graphic novel focused on Filipino myth, magic, and supernatural suspense!

Bikini Atoll (Clover Press) – A danger in the water story just in time for summer!

The Closet #1 (Image Comics) – Writer James Tynion IV has been killing it lately so just his name on this tale of existential horror has us intrigued.

Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis (DC Comics) – The opening chapter of DC’s next big events was so-so, but we’re still intrigued by this one-shot comic that fives us a world where the Justice League is gone.

Neverender #1 (Behemoth Comics) – At the edge of civilization the dominant sport is a civilized sword duel to the death.

Newthink #1 (AWA Studios) – This anthology examines the rapid proliferation of technology, the cultural and political polarization of the country, and the technocrats that have driven us to such extremes of thought that we need to present the present as something…futuristic.

The Nice House on the Lake #9 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – We’ve been loving this series that has us guessing as to what exactly is going on and where it’s going.

Phalanx (Image Comics) – Image is celebrating 30 years and this one-shot that seems to be having fun with the Image of old feels like it’d be nostalgic fun.

Shadow War: Omega (DC Comics) – The finale to the mini-event that will lead directly into DC’s next big summer event.

Triskele #1 (Scout Comics) – When young Alec Ellis is granted a magical gift on Samhain night, the scales of power on the island of Albion are inadvertently shifted.

Clover Press Explores the Life of Greg Louganis in A Champion’s Story

Greg Louganis

Clover Press has announced plans to develop a biographical graphic novel about famed Olympic champion diver and social & LGBTQ activist, Greg Louganis.

The creative team for A Champion’s Story is being finalized; Louganis will be involved in all stages of the book’s continued development and creation. A Champion’s Story is set for print and digital release by Clover Press in Winter, 2022.

The graphic novel will tell Louganis’ extraordinary life story, from his childhood and early diving career to achieving Olympic greatness and facing many challenges and triumphs in his personal life.

A Champion’s Story will be helmed by Clover Press’ Hank Kanalz and Matt Ruzicka. Ruzicka, a former executive at IDW Publishing, along with IDW Publishing co-founders, Ted Adams, and Robbie Robbins, each played a key role in bringing to life the bestselling graphic novel biographies of George Takei, They Called Us Enemy, and March, about civil rights leader and U.S. congressman, John Lewis.

Greg Louganis was raised by his adoptive parents, Frances and Peter Louganis. At the age of 9, he began diving lessons after the family built a swimming pool. He started training with Chuck Ruzicka, his first diving coach. He went on to catch the attention of Dr. Sammy Lee and coach Ron O’Brien and trained for the Olympics, where he won gold medals at the 1984 and 1988 Summer Olympics.

But his story doesn’t stop there. Louganis went on to experience many personal and career highs and lows. A Champion’s Story recounts them in a compelling graphic novel format, including his life as an adopted bi-racial child in Southern California, his reconnection with his biological family, and his health challenges. Louganis came out publicly as HIV-positive in 1995 and has been a prominent LGBTQ activist. He also has worked frequently with the Human
Rights Campaign to defend the civil liberties of the LGBT community and people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.
