A New Look at America’s First Woman Detective in Better Angels

BOOM! Studios has revealed a new look at the brand new original graphic novel Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure, from Emmy and Eisner Award-winning writer Jeff Jensen and acclaimed artist George Schall, inspired by the true story of Kate Warne, America’s first woman detective, and her singular achievement—thwarting a plot by Confederate radicals to kill Abraham Lincoln.

In 1861, America is at a crossroads. Abraham Lincoln, the man tasked with healing the nation, and his family are the targets of a conspiracy to assassinate them. Their safety – and the future of the American experiment – hinges on the success of a new kind of lawman, known by a word still novel in the culture: detective. 

But there was only one detective whose extraordinary cleverness, versatility and mystery made them a singular individual who could save the Lincolns. Her name was Kate Warne. This is the true story of America’s first woman detective, who saved the life of her country’s greatest president and changed the course of history forever.

Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure will be available for sale on October 27, 2021.

Review: Sandcastle

Early morning on a perfect summer’s day, people begin to descend on an idyllic, secluded beach. Among their number, a family, a young couple, a refugee, and some American tourists. Its fine white sand is fringed with rock pools filled with crystal clear water. The beach is sheltered from prying eyes by green-fringed cliffs that soar around the cove. But this utopia keeps a dark secret.

Sandcastle is the inspiration for M. Night Shyamalan’s major motion picture Old.

Celestia

(W) Manuele Fior (A) Manuele Fior
In Shops: Jul 21, 2021
SRP: $29.99

This highly anticipated new graphic novel from Manuele Fior (The Interview and 5,000 KM Per Second) showcases his singular talents as a once-in-a-generation visual artist and a deeply empathetic writer who uses science fiction to look to the future of humanity.
The “Great Invasion” originated from the sea. It moved north across the mainland. Many fled, while some took refuge on a small concrete island called Celestia, built over a thousand years ago. Now cut off from the mainland, Celestia has become an outpost for criminals and other misfits, as well as a refuge for a group of young telepaths. Events push two of them, Dora and Pierrot, to flee the island and set sail to the mainland. There, they discover a world on the precipice of a metamorphosis, though also a world where adults are literally prisoners of their own fortresses, unintentionally preserving the “old world” at a time when a new generation could guide society towards a better humanity. Celestia is the most ambitious and successful graphic novel to date by one of the world’s most exciting storytellers.

Twenty years into a zombie apocalypse, with nothing more than a jacket and a handful of clues, a teen sets out to find her lost uncle. Her journey takes a drastic turn when she collides with a young man and he loses his memory. The girl, unknowingly marked with zombie-attracting totems, finds herself evading hordes of the living dead with an amnesiac sidekick in tow, only to form a lasting friendship that breaks the trope of the atypical buddy adventure.
