We intend on using the finest artists and writers in the comic book medium. This is just the beginning… As a lifelong fan boy, I’ve been madly in love with the medium ever since I was in my early teens and have continued to ravenously devour comics through the decades. Along the way, I created our three comics – Zipper, Dominatrix and Gene Simmons House of Horrors.

Simmons Comics Anthology Volume 1 features the first chapter of Zipper, Dominatrix, and Gene Simmons House of Horrors, PLUS the first chapter of the all new crossover event, Zipper Versus Dominatrix: The Slave Trade, written by Erik Hendrix with art from Yannis Roumboulias.

GENRE: Supernatural Western

The honor of a samurai, the mysticism of the Native American Culture, and a whole heck of a lot of Old West Action. When a fallen samurai is drawn to the United States to save his wife-to-be and her father, he is drawn into a plot much more complex than a simple rescue. Meeting up with an adventurer, his Indian financial advisor, a mercenary, and a former priest, they set off on a quest to save the West from the strange and unimaginable. Zombie Indians, mystical beings, and mad science are just a few of they must face on their quest to save themselves, those they love, and the whole of the Old West.

PRICE: $14.95

Core mining, the deadliest job in the galaxy, draws only the bravest, or craziest, workers around. Bumping up to asteroids, typically propelling at astronomical speeds towards distant stars, the miners harvest minerals essential to interstellar travel and commerce. Close quarters, dangerous conditions, and less than a half inch of polymer sheath stand between them and swift oblivion. When the Harvest Moon stumbles upon a goldmine dangerously close to a star, the last thing they expect to find is an ancient alien race preparing to hatch an infestation throughout the system. Armed with mining tools and sour attitudes, Captain Cyrus Layne and his crew must survive the horrors of space and an unfamiliar enemy to escape with their lives. It’s Deadliest Catch meets Armageddon and Aliens in a dystopian future.

In 1950’s Las Vegas, the mob enlisted former circus attractions as their aces in the hole. These SideShows had a little secret… they really did have the abilities they pretended to. The Rat Pack was in their prime, the bartenders knew your name, and the same guy who comped your rooms could put a hit on you for stiffing him a tip. High rollers, lounge singers, cigarettes, alcohol, and superpowers. Welcome to Las Vegas!
