Titan Comics Announces New Imprint – Statix Press!

From Michael Moorcock’s Elric, and Enki Bilal’s The Nikopol Trilogy, to Snowpiercer and The Death of Stalin, which inspired major movies, Titan Comics has led the way in high quality, innovative translated editions aimed at a US audience.

Now Titan Comics is proud to announce a brand-new international imprint: Statix Press! This exciting new line will showcase the best comics from Europe and around the globe.

That’s what Wayne, Jeremiah, and Soham, the only survivors of a devastating alien invasion, struggle with – seeking a future that justifies their presence on a ruined world. Issue #1 arrives September 2017 and debuts with a special cover by iconic comic book creator Brandon Graham!

Review: Aliens: Dead Orbit #2

30287

Having narrowly escaped the deadly xenomorph, Wascylewski moves around the hold of the ship, wary of his terrifying pursuer. His reflexes are tested again—but this time, by a sudden, massive breach in the hull. Will he survive?

Written by James Stokoe, Aliens: Dead Orbit #2 reveals what caused Wascylewski’s current situation and how the Aliens got on board. He also manages to reveal some of the events that happened on the ship they found in the past. Given how cryptic some of the information they found is, begs a lot of questions. Yet one manages to stand out, will who that ship was working for show up?

The art style by Stokoe amps up the gore tremendously. Especially as the larva stage of the alien appears. He manages to show the sheer agony of the process in superb fashion. Yet it also manages to show the sheer distress of Wascylewski well as things continue to worsen.

Review: Aliens: Dead Orbit #1

30286

After a horrific accident strikes a space station, an engineering officer must use all available tools—a timer, utility kit, and his wits—to survive an attack from the deadliest creature known to man.

Orc Stain creator James Stokoe pens a thrilling and claustrophobic Aliens story: Dead Orbit!

Aliens: Dead Orbit #1 features a strange beginning, and an even stranger ending. Yet, something tells me there is a lot of story that has not been revealed yet by writer James Stokoe. That set-up leaves the reader with many currently unanswerable questions?

The art, also by Stokoe, creates a dark atmosphere that merges horror and science fiction well. The art manages to amplify the feeling of desolation and hopelessness, things that are staples of a good Alien tale.

The story and art come together to create a superb atmosphere for what will be an interesting, and creepy tale.
