Steve Foxe and Piotr Kowalski deliver a new vision of horror in All Eight Eyes

Steve Foxe and Piotr Kowalski present a new vision of creature-feature terror in their new horror series, All Eight Eyes!

This brand-new series reunites the team of Foxe, Kowalski, colorist Brad Simpson, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou following their collaboration in Razorblades: The Horror Magazine, a taboo-busting anthology of terror co-created by Foxe and multiple Eisner-winner James Tynion IV. All Eight Eyes takes readers back to the forgotten corners of post-9/11 New York City, where college dropout Vin Spencer floats through life in a drug-and-party-fueled haze until one terrible night sweeps him into a drifter’s reckless war against the giant eight-legged horrors stalking the city’s most vulnerable residents. 

All Eight Eyes issue #1 (of 4) skitters into comic shops April 19, 2023 along with a variant cover by James Stokoe.

All Eight Eyes will be collected in a paperback edition, including all four issues, a pinup section with art from James Stokoe, Martin Simmonds, David Romero, and Trevor Henderson alongside a bonus sketchbook section. The All Eight Eyes TPB will be available November 8, 2023 and is now available to pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local comic shop and indie bookstore.

But just maybe, the cat is the only thing standing between her and an even greater evil that threatens to destroy her life.

Spy Superb from Matt Kindt and Sharlene Kindt comes to Flux House and Dark Horse Comics

Who is the perfect spy? That question may be best answered by bestselling cartoonist Matt Kindt, who has been writing and illustrating espionage and action-fueled comics like for the last two decades. Next January, Kindt and the acclaimed colorist Sharlene Kindt will release Spy Superb their latest collaboration, an offbeat mystery-thriller about a secret organization that has developed the perfect spy. And just who is that perfect spy? Someone who doesn’t even realize they are a spy. 

In Spy Superb, a secret organization identifies the ultimate asset: a man named Jay, who is what they call a “useful idiot.”  Jay is sent on missions without even realizing he’s on a mission. Until he picks up the wrong phone with the wrong secret intel and now Russian hit-squads and elite assassins are after him. But Jay believes he was a sleeper agent—and really is the “spy superb”. His complete obliviousness and lack of survival skills may be the only thing that saves him in this globe-trotting espionage tale …where nothing is what it seems…but also…kind of actually is what it seems.

Spy Superb is the second release from Flux House, a new boutique imprint that will feature the writing (and sometimes) art of Matt Kindt, with crime, science fiction, and humor stories, all told and presented in startling and untraditional ways, following the release of Mind MGMT: BootlegSpy Superb #1 will feature a main cover by Matt Kindt and incentive variant covers by Martin Simmonds, Tula Lotay, and Christian Ward.

Vault Announces Mindset from Zack Kaplan and John Pearson

Vault has announced the new psychedelic sci-fi thriller, MINDSET, written by Zack Kaplan, drawn & colored by Eisner-winning artist John J. Pearson, lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and designed by Tim Daniel

MINDSET centers around four grad students who accidentally discover mind control, put it in an app, and set out to free over one billion users from technological addiction. But are they freeing the world or controlling it? It’s a cautionary tale about how idealistic dreams are corrupted, how our own minds are locked in an existential battle with technology, and perhaps, how we might win it.

MINDSET #1 hits store shelves in June, 2022. The series will feature a line of gorgeous variants by Martin Simmonds

When an introverted tech geek from Stanford, with dreams of changing the world, accidentally discovers a form of mind control, he and his friends do something unexpected – they put the science into a meditation app to help users break their addiction to other manipulative technologies and platforms. But after their rags-to-riches rise, a wake of murders and a series of mind games, their Mindset app replaces all rival social media and achieves a cult following of a billion users, and they must ask the question – are they helping people or controlling them?
