What If Your Second Life Were Your Only Life? BOOM!’s Arcadia

If your mind were uploaded to a computer, would you still be considered a person? Debut creators Alex Paknadel and Eric Scott Pfeiffer pose this question and more in the upcoming sci-fi thriller series Arcadia from BOOM! Studios this May.

When 99% of humankind is wiped out by a pandemic, four billion people are “saved” by being digitized at the brink of death and uploaded into Arcadia, a utopian simulation in the cloud. But when Arcadia begins to rapidly deplete the energy resources upon which the handful of survivors in the real world (aka “The Meat”) depends, how long will The Meat be able—and willing—to help?

Arcadia #1 arrives in comic shops on May 6th with the first of a five-part connecting main cover by Matt Taylor for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR151040. Also available in a limited quantity are a 10 Years incentive cover by Frazer Irving, and a retailer incentive cover by series artist Eric Scott Pfeiffer. A new cover by W. Scott Forbes has been added to the Final Order Cutoff (FOC) deadline, and it can be ordered in any quantity.

Siege #1 Brings You Battleworld’s Heroic Protectors This July!

They are few against many. They are the last line of defense. They can’t ever win. They can’t afford to lose. This July, enter one of the most dangerous areas on Battleworld as Kieron Gillen and Felipe Andrade bring you Seige #1 – a brand new Secret Wars story of deadly proportions!

Welcome to the Shield, the last line of defense against the hordes to the south of Battleworld. Zombie armies, Ultron robots primed only for death, and the Annihilation Wave. The Shield is the only thing that keeps them out. To patrol the Shield is to know fear, for your end could come at any moment. To man the Shield is to put your trust in the men and women standing beside you at the edge of the world. And to trust your leader. Because if you patrol the Shield – you answer to Abigail Brand.

In an interview with Marvel.com, Gillen said:

The Shield’s purpose is to stop everything that’s south of that point going north of that point. It’s because everything south of the Shield is entirely ungovernable. They want to eat you. Being deposited on the Shield is a punishment for a mixture of people who are entirely too battle-hungry or entirely too heroic.

Now Brand and her team – Lady Katherine Bishop, Leah of Hel, Magik, Leonardo Da Vinci, Miss America Chaves, the Endless Summers and Grimm – must stand alone against unstoppable darkness. Because if they fail – everything is lost. The valiant last stand of the unsung heroes of Battleworld begins this July in Seige #1!

Battleworld Ignites in Inhumans: Attilan Rising #1

There’s a rebellion brewing on Battleworld. Stretching far and wide into every dominion across the strange, patchwork realm, underground revolutionaries prepare for the uprising. Marvel has announced Inhumans: Attilan Rising #1, a new Secret Wars series from New York Times Bestselling writer Charles Soule and artist John Timms!

Medusa, ruler of Attilan and Queen of the Inhumans, has been tasked with rooting out the rebels, and crushing their resistance beneath her steely tendrils of hair. Yet a chance encounter with the head of the insurgency will change everything. A man named – BLACK BOLT! And things are about to get complicated.

In an interview with Marvel.com, Charles Soule said:

One of the ideas behind Inhumans: Attilan Rising from the start was to put Medusa, Black Bolt, Reader, Iso and other characters from Inhuman into a new context. That’s part of the fun of an event like Secret Wars. Things don’t have to be the way we’re used to seeing them.

My initial concept was ‘life during wartime’. The relationships we’re used to seeing will be different in this story. Huge drama, spies, glamour, action, betrayal, sabotage. My hope is that it won’t feel like anything else out there.

The drums of war beat for the Inhuman nation. But when the dust clears, who will rise?

From the mind of SAY ANYTHING frontman Max Bemis comes POLARITY, a manic-depressive trip you’ll never forget. Timothy Woods is a bipolar artist stuck in the world of hipsters, meaningless sex, and vain art — better known as Brooklyn. But after he survives a near fatal car accident, Timothy discovers that his mental instability is more than just a disorder, and that his bipolar medication hasn’t just been subduing depression and uncontrollable mania…it’s been suppressing his super powers! Now it’s time for Timothy to stand up to his disease alongside an onslaught of wretched human villainy as he finally finds his place in the world.
