Aftershock Comics September 2019 Solicitations

MIDNIGHT VISTA #1 
(W) Eliot Rahal (A) Clara Meath (CA) Juan Doe (Variant) Rahzzah
Oliver Flores and his stepfather, Nomar Perez, were turning right onto Midnight Vista Road when they were both abducted by aliens. To Oliver’s mother, they were both just missing. To the police, they were declared legally dead. And to everyone else growing up in Albuquerque, Oliver Flores was the “Milk Carton Kid”. His life was the cautionary tale of an eight-year-old who was kidnapped and killed by his stepdad while out for some ice cream. But now – years later – a fully grown adult Oliver walks back into town. He has been returned…and he remembers everything.
Based on a very personal, true story from writer Eliot Rahal (HOT LUNCH SPECIAL), with out-of-this-world art from Clara Meath, MIDNIGHT VISTA will make you believe in little grey men.

BAD RECEPTION #2
(W) Juan Doe (A/CA) Juan Doe
The toast has been made and the cake has been cut.
The most intimate wedding reception of the century has started, and all the guests are suffering a bad case of nomophobia (a.k.a. “no-mobile-phone phobia”). But things get real in a hurry when the mysterious killer sets off a frenzy that drives the re-maining guests into a world of unknown primal fear. Now they must learn to de-pend on each other if they are to survive the hunt.
Written and drawn by AfterShock’s very own Juan Doe (DARK ARK, AMERICAN MON-STER, WORLD READER), BAD RECEPTION is a searing horror story that doubles as a topical, satirical critique on society’s obsession with technology, social media and the cult of celebrity.

Created by writer Christopher Sebela (COLD WAR, Crowded, Shanghai Red, High Crimes) and illustrator Chris Visions (Dead Letters, Spider-Gwen, Bitch Planet), TRUST FALL is a criminally provocative tale of give-and-take with a style all its own.

When one of their own falls in love with Grey, all bets are off. Slowly, Grey regains his
powers. What happens next could destroy Earth as we know it.
