Don’t slow down. Don’t get comfortable. Don’t think you’re safe. Be ready to run. Something sinisters lurks in this graphic novel that is part psychological thriller and part horror story.

Abraham Stubbs and his father Noah roam America in a nomadic existence. Convinced they are being pursued by sinister government forces, Noah has them living off the grid, burgling houses to survive. Elsewhere, on Mount Rector, the lone survivor of a climbing expedition staggers homeward, covered in blood. Both are on an inevitable collision course with the picturesque Canadian resort town of Braeriach. Massive storm clouds are brewing. The animals are running. Something else is on its way.

The most shocking series of the year continues with its most relentlessly suspenseful chapter yet! A snowstorm has fallen over the town of Braeriach, and an onslaught of terror has come with it. For as long as he can remember, Abraham has been raised to run at the first sign of trouble, but this time there may be nowhere to go. Everything changes in this harrowing, unmissable penultimate issue!

Everything in Mountainhead has been building to this chapter! On the road to Canada, a driver makes an ill-fated roadside stop. In Braeriach, the townsfolk are behaving strangely, animals are disappearing, and Theo Halbot seeks to share some good news with his family. And in the skies over Mount Rector, a storm is brewing. In this pivotal, must-read issue, secrets are revealed, blood is spilled… and the other shoe drops. Don’t miss the comic everyone will be talking about!

In Braeriach, everyone is happy and strangers smile at you on the street. So why can’t Abraham shake the feeling that this is all a trap? Why does he keep having the same horrific nightmare? And, as Abraham struggles to adjust to his new life, his old life may not be ready to let him go.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Doctor Mirage #1

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Absolute Carnage #2/Absolute Carnage: Lethal Protectors #1/Absolute Carnage: Miles Morales #1/Venom #17 (Marvel) – Events often don’t live up to the hype but “Absolute Carnage” has delivered so far. There’s only been good to great so far so we’re all in until we see otherwise.

Batman/Superman #1 (DC Comics) – The Batman Who Laughs has poisoned superheroes and this classic team-up returns to deal with it. The next chapter in an epic tale.

Doctor Mirage #1 (Valiant) – How do you solve the case of your own death? That concept is too cool to not check out.

Grass (Drawn & Quarterly) – An anti-war graphic novel about a Korean girl forced into sexual slavery for the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.

House of X #3 (Marvel) – The big picture is finally revealed and Hickman isn’t giving us a restart of the X-Universe but delivering the next major event.

Killers #2 (Valiant) – A deeper dive into Valiants “Ninja” world. It’s been cool so far adding a lot to this intriguing corner of the universe.

Knights Temporal #2 (Aftershock) – The first issue was really intriguing with a knight transported to modern times. The details are still a mystery but it’s a mystery we’re intrigued by.

Mall #1 (Vault Comics) – The Mall isn’t just a bunch of stores, this consumeristic mecca is filled with tribes and name brand gangs!

Manor Black #2 (Dark Horse) – If you read the first issue, you know why this is on the list. The comic is a mix of horror and superheroes and we’re intrigued to see where it all goes.

Marvel Comics #1000 (Marvel) – We’ve read this one and it’s an intriguing celebration of Marvel’s 80 years.

Mountainhead #1

Mountainhead #1 (IDW Publishing) – A father and son are nomads who think the government is after them. A lone survivor of a climbing expedition is covered in blood. The two will collide in this intriguing debut.

Power Pack: Grow Up #1 (Marvel) – Louise Simonson and June Brigman return to the beloved characters to celebrate 80 years of Marvel.

Red Winter #2 (Scout Comics) – The first issue was solid gritty crime/noir and we’re all in for the second issue.

Stalingrad: Letters from the Volga (Dead Reckoning) – Exploring the bloodiest battle of World War II.

Tommy Gun Wizards #1 (Dark Horse) – An alternate history where Eliot Ness is after Al Capone who’s dealing in magic.
