Something is Killing the Children #1

Something is Killing the Children #1

BOOM! Studios

(W) James TynionIV (A/CA) Werther Dell’Edera

* GLAAD Award-winning writer James Tynion IV (Memetic, Batman: Detective Comics) teams with artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) for an all-new limited series about staring into the abyss to find your worst fears staring back.
* When the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories-impossible stories of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows.
* Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to see what they can see.
* Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it MUST be done

New Release Pick of the Week for 8/14/2019

Once and Future #1

ONCE & FUTURE #1 (OF 6)

BOOM! Studios

(W) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora

When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.

Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain ‘s history!

New Release Pick of the Week for 4/10/2019

Faithless #1

Faithless #1 (of 5)

BOOM! Studios

(W) Brian Azzarello (A) Maria Llovet (CA) Tula Lotay

Faith. Sex. The Devil.

Faith likes to dabble with magic. Her friends think it’s cute-and not just a little off-putting, but it’s part of her charm and her warped search for purpose in a world that makes too much sense. But she’s a true believer and knows there is a power within her reach. She’s right, of course. It just took a while for that magic, that temptation, that unknowable thing to find her . . .
In short- Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.

New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello ( 100 Bullets , Batman: Damned ) and artist Maria Llovet ( Loud ) with Eisner Award winning artist Paul Pope on covers coalesce in a story of self-exploration, eroticism, and maybe even love.

Queer Book Club – Jonesy

Jonesy

Sunday, June 24

5:15 PM – 6:15 PM

Please join us for our first meeting of the ABC QBC!

Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows. She has the power to make people fall in love! Anyone. With anything. There’s only one catch-it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong.

(W) Sam Humphries (A) Caitlin Rose Boyle

Covering: Jonesy vol 1
