Talk about a horror show-and the demonic lead character ain’t even the half of it! Siblings Joe and Annie find themselves in a town terrorized by the omnipotently evil Bel Dame, who uses an army of the maimed undead to do her bidding-such as torturing Joe (a.k.a. Brimstone). The Bel Dame decides to teach our fiery hero a lesson in sacrifice, and it’s one so horrifying, it may just rip the brother-sister duo apart for good.

A Wave Blue World offers Free Comics to Supporters of Mark Waid’s Legal Fund

A Wave Blue World (AWBW), publisher of anthologies such as Broken Frontier, All We Ever Wanted: Stories of a Better World, and the upcoming Death of the Horror Anthology, announces they will send free digital copies of This Nightmare Kills Fascists and a special color version of the All We Ever Wanted ashcan edition to anyone who donates $15USD or more to Mark Waid‘s legal fundraiser.

The longstanding comic book pro is currently being sued by one of the perceived leaders of the online harassment movement called ‘ComicsGate’. To fund his defense against the suit, Waid has launched a crowdfunding appeal on Go Fund Me.

Curated and edited by Matt Miner (GWAR, Poser) and Eric Palicki (No Angel, Atlantis Wasn’t Built For Tourists), This Nightmare Kills Fascists is a horror anthology in the style of Creepy and Eerie, told against the backdrop of modern politics.  It boasts stories from a plethora of hot creators including Vita Ayala, Tini Howard, Justin Jordan, Ariela Kristantina, Ryan Ferrier, and many, many more.

All We Ever Wanted: Stories of a Better World is an upcoming anthology spearheaded by the same editorial team plus AWBW publisher Tyler Chin-Tanner that looks into a more hopeful and positive future, and has been described as “less Mad Max, more Star Trek.”  Currently available to order in the October issue of Previews, the anthology is set to hit stores in December.

The print version of the ashcan was an exclusive for NYCC ‘18, but can now be obtained digitally only by those who support this fund. It contains three of the stories from the anthology by creators Robbi Rodriguez, Tyler Chin-Tanner, Paul Allor, Juan Romera, Eric Palicki, and Eryk Donovan.

AWBW publisher Tyler Chin-Tanner said in the release:

Over his entire career, Mark Waid has always been a champion for creators’ rights and now he’s standing up for them against bullying and harassment. It’s important for us to come together now as a comics community to support him.

Comic creator Matt Miner added:

If our fascist-smashing anthology can help Mark Waid fight against actual fascists in comics then I’m all for it. I stand with my LGBT family and trans friends in denouncing comicsgate and all the hate that they spew.

Comic creator Eric Palicki also said:

I don’t know Mark personally, but I’ve followed his work for as long as I’ve been reading comics. It’s no surprise a writer who understands Superman or Daredevil so profoundly would devote so much of himself to standing up to real-life bullies, and I’m proud to help Mark in any way I can.

To obtain the PDFs for This Nightmare Kills Fascists and the All We Ever Wanted ashcan, please send a screenshot of your receipt of your donation of $15USD or more to Mark Waid’s fundraiser to tyler@awbw.com.

The Third Giant Batman and Teen Titans is Out Soon at Walmart

On the heels of Tom King and Andy Kubert’s debut in the exclusive-to-Walmart Superman 100-page Giant #3, Batman fans of all stripes will get their own dose of superstar talent as issue #3 of the Batman 100-page Giant ships to stores, featuring part one of an original 12-part story, “Batman Universe,” written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Nick Derington.

Along with colorist Dave Stewart and letterer Josh Reed, Bendis and Derington weave a tale that leads Batman on a wild goose chase spanning the DC universe, tracking down a mysterious artifact that contains the literal key to evolution.

The Batman Giant also includes chapters from the iconic Jeph Loeb/Jim Lee story Batman: Hush, as well as Kyle Higgins and Eddy Barrows’ “Welcome to Gotham,” and Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Chad Hardin’s “Hot in the City,” from the New 52 Nightwing and Harley Quinn.

Arriving with the Batman Giant is issue #3 of the Teen Titans Giant, featuring “Enter… The Disruptor,” a new chapter of the original six-part Teen Titans story by Dan Jurgens and Scot Eaton, plus more from from Geoff Johns’ version of the Teen Titans from The New 52 (with art by Mike McKone), Peter J. Tomasi and Jorge Jimenez’ Super Sons from Rebirth and New Age of Heroes Sideways, by Kenneth Rocafort, Dan DiDio, and Justin Jordan.

Nothing is creepier than possessed children. Wait, no, possessed dolls. Those are worse. Anyway, our heroes Joe and Annie find themselves under assault from a horde of possessed kids, all under the command of the mystical baddie Slackjaw. In reality, Slackjaw’s a possessed child himself, so it might be time to call in Brimstone for an exorcism. Unfortunately, Joe’s having a crisis of conscience because he doesn’t want to fight children, even if they’re possessed by the devil. So how do you stop a child-devil army without hurting the innocent possessed?

Review: Call of Duty Zombies 2 #1

The year is 1910, the place is Morocco, and there is a job that needs doing. The man to do it? A commanding officer in the French Foreign Legion. The prize? An artifact of unspeakable power. The price? More than he bargained for.

I’m a bit conflicted about Call of Duty Zombies 2 #1. While the zombies are a bit scarce, the comic itself reminds me a lot of Indiana Jones.

Written by Justin Jordan, the first issue is the set up for what I expect to be zombies at some point. Instead, we get a man hiring an officer in the French Foreign Legion to get an artifact. Decrease his age, give him a whip and a fedora, and the issue would remind me a hell of a lot of a certain classic character.

The issue is far from what I expected, it being a Call of Duty comic and also featuring zombies. Much of that is on me as I haven’t played a Call of Duty game in some time and expected more of the storytelling we get in that series. Your expectations may vary.

But, what’s presented is good and it’s entertaining. So much so, I’d love to see Jordan take on Jones in a new comic series. The issue is good with the set up of wherever it’s going and feels like a solid archaeological focused adventure.

The art by Andres Ponce, with ink by Mauro Vargas, and color by Dan Jackson fits the story perfectly. The style evokes the time and characters well and designs are solid. Again, there’s a certain whip carrying character that it all would look well with.

Despite it not being what I expected, again on me as much as anything, the issue is an adventure that you just don’t see in comics much. It’s fun, it reminds me of a certain someone I’ve mentioned a few times now, and it has me wanting to come back and see where it goes. Don’t expect zombies in this one but do expect a fun and entertaining pulp adventure.

There’s no child’s play involved when the Salesman’s ledger brings Joe and Annie to another mysterious town that he’s destroyed, this time leaving it populated only by kids. So what happened to all the adults? You’d have to ask the town’s leader, Slackjaw, but you’re not gonna like the answer! Also, Annie might have made a love connection-with a serial killer named Wandering Jack, who’s now stalking her.
