Created by Hiroshi Koizumi, written by Eliot Rahal, drawn by Dike Ruan, colored by Miquel Muerto, and designed by Tim DanielBleed Them Dry weaves Japanese and Western mythology together to create a deep-future sci-fi epic about Detective Harper Halloway, who’s been tasked with capturing an insidious killer: Someone targeting our immortal brethren, the Vampires that have been living beside us peacefully for centuries.

People have come to understand that some Immortals are good, some are bad, and most navigate the world without incident. There is peace. 

That is, until now. 

Someone is brutally murdering vampires. And Detective Harper Halloway has been assigned to the case. To solve it, she’ll have to unearth a much deeper truth: the future of humanity has been edited.

Written by Zac Thompson and Emily Pearson, drawn by Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque, colored by Raul Angulo, lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and designed by Tim Daniel, No One’s Rose is a sci-fi story like no other, going so far as to establish it’s very own genre: solar punk

Centuries after the fall of the Anthropocene, the last vestiges of human civilization are housed in a massive domed city powered by renewable energy, known as The Green Zone. Inside lives teenager Tenn Gavrilo, a brilliant bio-engineer who could rebuild the planet. But there’s one problem: her resentful brother Seren is eager to dismantle the precarious Utopia.

From the minds of Zac Thompson (X-Men, Yondu) and debut writer Emily Horn with artist Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque (Letter 44, Avengers) comes a gorgeous and green solar-punk world filled with strange biotechnology, harsh superstorms, and divisive ideologies-ideologies that will tear Tenn and Seren down to their roots as they fight for a better Earth.
