AUG191495
(W) Marguerite Bennett (A/CA) Leila Leiz
After the death of her father, Ruby Ando tries to reconnect with her estranged and isolated mother, whose hoarder house is a nightmare labyrinth of secrets and dangers. All the love Ruby was never shown she sees her mother lavish on her treasures and trinkets, the possessions that possess her. But when Ruby desperately tries to free her mother, the house wages war, ensnar-ing both women within its maze. Brought to hideous and twisted life by a mother’s love, the “Horde” is determined to purge Ruby from the collection-or see her join it forever.

Brought to life by Marguerite Bennett (ANIMOSITY, DC’s Bombshells, Batwoman) and Leila Leiz (ALTERS, Nvrlnd), HORDE is a haunting, housebound horror story about the things we let control us.

AUG191496
(W) Cullen Bunn (A/CA) Juan Doe
THE EPIC SERIES RETURNS!

Two arks were built to survive the Flood. One was filled with the creatures of the natural world. The other was populated by…everything else.

Now that the denizens of the DARK ARK have beaten Noah’s Ark to land, a new so-cietal order must be created – one based on the rule of monsters. Khalee, a new sorceress, ventures to maintain order amidst the chaos, but her otherworldly mas-ters have a different task in mind. She must devise a way to bring Noah’s Ark to the monsters…because the beasts must feed.

From writer Cullen Bunn (UNHOLY GRAIL, BROTHERS DRACUL, WITCH HAMMER, Deadpool, Venom) and artist Juan Doe (ANIMOSITY: THE RISE, AMERICAN MONSTER, WORLD READER) comes an even more sinister tale of biblical proportions!

SHOPLIFTERS WILL BE LIQUIDATED #1 CVR A SIMEONE

AUG191499
(W) Patrick Kindlon (A/CA) Stefano Simeone
The largest retailer in the world requires the best-trained loss prevention staff, and Security Officer Nussbaum defends the company interests at any cost.

But his world is upended when he finds a society living under the retail outlet – a culture that challenges his no-tions about consumerism and sense of self. Is he ready for the message? Imagine Judge Dredd working for Amazon, and you’ve got a hint of what you’re in for.

From Patrick Kindlon (PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE!) and Stefano Simeone (CLANKILLERS) comes SHOPLIFTERS WILL BE LIQUIDATED-a satirical take on the consumer society.

MIDNIGHT VISTA #2

AUG191501
(W) Eliot Rahal (A) Clara Meath (CA) Juan Doe
It’s the news story of the century! Oliver Flores – the kid on the face of every milk carton in New Mex-ico – has been found.

Recovering at the hospital, Oliver is finally able to reveal where he’s been for the last nineteen years: Along with his stepfather, he was abducted by aliens. And the only real problem with that is…no one believes him. Not the detectives from his case, not the doctors who treated him, not even his biologi-cal dad. They’re all convinced Oliver is suffering from massive trauma.

Meanwhile, no one seems to notice the suspicious Strangers in Black trying to silence Oliver for good.

Based on a 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.

LAST SPACE RACE TP VOL 01

AUG191502
(W) Peter Calloway (A) Alex Shibao
It started as an anomaly. An outlier in the noise that’s so common in astronomical data. But
the truth sends the United States-and the world-careening into what will become humanity’s
LAST SPACE RACE.

Leading the effort for the United States is one man, Sasha Balodis. A fun-loving tech
billionaire turned aerospace titan, Sasha’s seemingly perfect life has been gripped by recent
tragedy. Building and launching the most expensive, most ambitious and most important
project in history-well, it gives him something to live for again.

There’s only one thing standing in his way: his arch-rival and chief aerospace competitor,
Roger Freeman.

Written by Peter Calloway (TV’s Legion, Cloak & Dagger, Under the Dome) and drawn by
Alex Shibao (Independence Day), THE LAST SPACE RACE is an imaginative investigation
into wonder, hope and humanity’s grandest purpose-a truly original story AfterShock
couldn’t be more fired up to tell.
