ROWANS RUIN #1 (of 4)

Retail Price: $3.99
Author: Mike Carey
Artist: Mike Perkins
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Mike Perkins
Jackpot: Mike Perkins
BOOM! 10 Years Incentive Cover: Brian Stelfreeze
Incentive Cover: Andre de Freitas

What’s to Love: The team of Mike Carey (Suicide Risk, The Unwritten) and Mike Perkins (Deathlok) come together for the first time since 2005’s Spellbinders for a taut horror thriller set in their native England. If you’re a fan of horror films like Insidious and The Conjuring, or comics like Curse and Nailbiter, you’ll love how Rowans Ruin unfolds as it slowly clues you in on the terrifying secret that is at the heart of the story.

What It’s About: Katie has always had things pretty easy, growing up in comfortable circumstances in Florida. But when she finds herself with a long summer break before grad school, she decides to do a house-swap with a British girl, Emily, as a way to vacation relatively cheaply—and to get out from under her parents’ attentiveness. England is great, so different from Florida, and the house, called Rowans Rise, is charming. But soon she starts having nightmares—really, really, strong ones. Curious, Katie researches the owners of the house, and discovers it may have more of a sinister history than she thought…

COGNETIC #1 (of 3)

Retail Price: $4.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eryk Donovan
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Eryk Donovan
BOOM! 10 Years Incentive Cover: Brian Stelfreeze
Incentive Cover: Juan Doe

What’s to Love: The creative team behind the award-nominated Memetic is back with another apocalyptic tale! We obviously love working with James Tynion IV (see The Woods, UFOlogy, and the aforementioned Memetic), and we know partnering him once again with artist Eryk Donovan will lead to another great-looking story. In Cognetic, Tynion and Donovan offer a look at the fundamentally human desire for control—that deep-seated belief we all feel in our darkest moments that if we had total, absolute power, we would be able to create a perfect world.

What It Is: Every human believes that they are self-reliant, self-determined individuals, each set on their own course. They’ve built civilizations, they’ve built culture, they’ve built lives… But what if that isn’t the right track? What if there is a singular mind ready to take back control and finally right the destiny of mankind and build a better tomorrow? Cognetic is the story of a powerful psychic being that once controlled one-third of the world’s population as a part of its hivemind, and his return to humanity in modern-day New York City. It’s a psychic action thriller, precariously positioned on the edge of outright apocalypse. It’s also the story of the young woman, the assistant to the director of the FBI, who might be the only one who can save humanity, but at a terrible, terrible cost. The second entry in Tynion and Donovan’s “Apocalypse Trilogy.” Each issue in this miniseries is oversized with 48 pages!

DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? OMNIBUS TP

Retail Price: $39.99
Author: Philip K. Dick
Artist: Tony Parker
Cover Artist: Jay Shaw

What’s to Love: If you loved the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner, chances are you know it’s based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? From 2009-2011, we published a 24-issue graphic interpretation of the novel as realized by artist Tony Parker. Now, for the first time, all 24 issues of the Eisner Award-nominated series are collected into one complete omnibus edition, featuring a brand-new cover by Mondo artist Jay Shaw and essays from Jonathan Lethem, Ed Brubaker, Warren Ellis, Matt Fraction, and more.

What It Is: San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War has killed millions, driving entire species to extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies build incredibly realistic fakes: horses, birds, cats, sheep…even humans. Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six rogue androids. They’re machines, but look, sound, and think like humans—and infinitely more dangerous.

BOOM_DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep_Omnibus_TP

MEMETIC TP

Retail Price: $14.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eryk Donovan
Cover Artist: Eryk Donovan

What’s to Love: Memetic is truly an event comic, and a wholly unique take on the disaster genre. Much like his work on The Woods, writer James Tynion IV—with the help of fantastic newcomer Eryk Donovan (The House in the Wall)—brings horror to a whole new generation of fans of J-horror films like Uzumaki and The Ring. Plus, Memetic was nominated for the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Comic!

What It Is: A meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then virally spreads to multiple persons and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme’s success comes from its effectiveness to the host, but history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through society. Memetic shows the progression of a weaponized meme that leads to the utter annihilation of the human race within 72 hours. The root of this apocalypse is a single image on the internet, a “meme” in the popular sense. A meme that changes everything. Collects the complete three-issue miniseries.

BOOM_Memetic_TP

FICTION SQUAD TP

Retail Price: $19.99
Author: Paul Jenkins
Artists: Ramon Bachs
Cover Artist: Ramon Bachs

What’s to Love: After publishing Paul Jenkins’ Fairy Quest, we kinda have a thing for Fablewood, where all fairy tales and bedtime stories live side-by-side. So when he came up with a mystery and fantasy mash-up adventure set there and enlisted his Civil War: Front Line artist Ramon Bachs, we hopped aboard faster than Alice went down the rabbit hole. In Fiction Squad, every nursery rhyme is a crime scene in the making. If you like your mystery mashed up with fantasy, like Fables and Once Upon a Time, this has got you covered.

What It Is: Fablewood is a pretty dangerous place, but no area is more dangerous than the City of Rimes, deep in the heart of the Children’s Realm. After transferring in from the realm of Mystery, a failed detective from an unfinished prose novel, Frankie Mack, is about to uncover a conspiracy that could unmake storytelling itself. After Humpty Dumpty is pushed to crack and Jack (of Jack and Jill) goes AWOL, Frankie and his partner, Simple Simon, are put on the case. Collects the complete six-issue miniseries.

ISCARIOT HC

Retail Price: $24.99

Artist: S.M. Vidaurri
Cover Artist: S.M. Vidaurri

What’s to Love: If you’ve read S.M. Vidaurri’s first original graphic novel Iron: Or, the War After or his issue of Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches, you might understand when we say his watercolor stylings are hauntingly beautiful to look at—they have a soft gentleness to them, yet can convey the most stark of imagery. His new OGN has us completely mesmerized once again, invoking comparisons to The Legend of Korra and the works of Hayao Miyazaki.

What It Is: When Carson, a young girl living with cancer, is bestowed with age-old magic by a rebellious sorcerer named Iscariot, she must navigate her new powers, face the life she had thought she left behind forever, and take on the order of magicians who want to control her destiny. Carson discovers that Iscariot’s intentions might not have been as altruistic as it first appeared, and learns the hard way that magic comes at a cost.

As a result, John has earned a large, loyal following of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years. Giant Days is an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends away at university, and is a series fans of things like Scott Pilgrim and Friends with Boys will not want to miss!
What It Is: Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive.

What’s to Love: Justin Jordan exploded onto the comics scene just four short years ago with The Strange Talent of Luther Strode and caught everyone by surprise. Now he brings us John Flood, a series that combines the metaphysical with the procedural in a way we think is really fresh. Joining him is Jorge Coelho, whose fantastic work on Polarity and Sleepy Hollow made him a BOOM! favorite. Perfect for fans of Desolation Jones and Sherlock Holmes.

What It Is: As the result of a government experiment, John Flood no longer needs to sleep, but now he’s in a constant dream state and sometimes can’t tell what’s real and what isn’t. But a side effect is that he sees patterns and makes connections no one else can, which serve him well in his new “career” as a make-shift PI. Together with a burly ex-cop, Flood begins to investigate when he “sees” one man responsible for thousands of unsolved murders, but now he himself has caught the killer’s attention…

What’s to Love: Airing last November, Pat McHale’s Over the Garden Wall was Cartoon Network’s first-ever original animated miniseries.

What’s to Love: Part social commentary, part family drama, Americatown asks: What if the American Dream gave way to the American Nightmare? In their inaugural comic series, screenwriters Bradford Winters (Oz, Boss, The Americans) and Larry Cohen (Netflix’s Borgia), give us a story great for fans of Transmetropolitan, Children of Men, and the TV show Black Mirror. What It Is: After an economic collapse and other disasters in the near future, Americans are now the legal and illegal immigrants living abroad. They find work in cities like Buenos Aires, where their very own enclave known as “Americatown” has taken root. Owen, a recent arrival, begins a journey to support and save his splintered family divided between the enclave and home back in the U.S. His struggle is just a small part of the hardships and conflicting agendas in an immigrant community trying to build itself in the shadow of a once great nation.

BUTTERFLY HC

Retail Price: $24.99
Authors: Arash Amel & Marguerite Bennett
Artists: Antonio Fuso and Stefano Simeone
Cover Design: Scott Newman

What’s to Love: We’ve all spent hours glued to episodes of shows like True Detective and House of Cards that explore deeply flawed and morally complex characters. In Butterfly, screenwriter Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco, Erased) brings that aesthetic to comics. Written by Amel and Marguerite Bennett (A-Force, Sleepy Hollow) and illustrated by Antonio Fuso (The Girl Who Played with Fire) and Stefano Simeone, Butterfly is a dark thriller that explores the nature of family in the uncompromising world of global espionage.

What It Is: Butterfly is one of Project Delta’s deep cover agents, no birth certificate, no social security number, a complete ghost. When her cover is blown and she’s set up for a murder she didn’t commit, she is unknowingly led to her father’s doorstep, a man she thought died 20 years ago. Trained to trust nothing and no one, Butterfly must decide whether to seek answers with the Project, or believe the man who betrayed her years ago.

Jeff Stokely (Gotham Academy, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches) are the formidable duo who blew us away with their sci-fi/western fusion Six-Gun Gorilla. It’s only natural we would want to see what else they had up their sleeves. Now they’ve teamed up again to create a murder-mystery set in an apocalyptic fantasy future, that fans of East of West and Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal will adore. What It Is: Oversized first issue! The Spire is a mountain of metal and stone that rises from the toxic nowherelands; a city of twisting tunnels, grinding elevators, ancient machinery, and over one million human and non-human residents. Shå, the only citizen of her species, is Commander of the Watch: responsible for keeping order despite the racist views of those around her. When a string of grisly murders occurs on the eve of the new Baroness’s coronation, Shå is tasked with bringing the killer to justice… and picking-apart the wider mysteries tangled around the crime. But the city’s new ruler seems sets to usher-in a more xenophobic age, and Shå swiftly finds she has far more than one enemy at her back…

What’s To Love: New York Times bestselling author Kate Leth (Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time: Seeing Red) and artist Matt Cummings (Adventure Time) create a new, original series that takes the magical girl story where it’s never, ever been before. Combining a deep love of Sailor Moon with the tongue-in-cheek humor of Scott Pilgrim, Power Up is the story of the most unlikely people (and goldfish) taking on the roles of Magical Girl, whether they want it or not.

What It Is: It has been foretold that four noble warriors of incredible strength would be gifted with cosmic abilities at a moment of planetary alignment…which, yeah, something definitely went wrong here. Amie is a disaffected twentysomething with a lot of attitude, Kevin is a washed-up athlete way past his prime, Sandy’s a mother of two teenagers, and Silas…is a goldfish. Just a normal goldfish. Are we sure we read that prophecy right?

THE EMPTY MAN TP

Retail Price: $19.99
Author: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Vanesa R. Del Rey
Cover Artist: Vanesa R. Del Rey

What’s to Love: There’s nothing scarier than horror that hits home—a tale of terror only one or two steps removed from our reality. The Empty Man is a dystopic version of the world we know, where a terrifying disease has taken on almost deific connotations. Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Magneto) and Vanesa R. Del Rey (Hit) are two of the most exciting talents in the industry, and perfectly in sync on this haunting new crime procedural.

What It Is: It’s been one year since the first reported case of the Empty Man disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As murder cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure. Collects the complete miniseries, issues #1-6.
