The Westwood Witches

THE WESTWOOD WITCHES
Publisher: AMIGO Comics
Written by: El Torres, Art by: Abel García, Edited by: Lance Tooks, Letterd by: Malaka Studio

The same team behind the acclaimed “Drums” miniseries at Image Comics tell us a whole new tale of horror that brings the witchcraft horror into the modern world. A macabre 4-issues miniseries that will be released in May, 2013.

The Westwood Witches is a story that could be best explained by saying it’s like Desperate Housewives meets sci-fi horror. The main character Jack is a successful writer of bestsellers… which he hates. Suffering from writer’s block, he  decides to go back to his old neighborhood, not knowing that his neighbors are real witches, the kind of demon worshipers that kill anyone who could disturb Westwood.

The Massive

In a post-war, post-crash, post-disaster, post-everything world, the environmental-action trawler Kapital scours the earth’s oceans for its mysteriously missing sistership, The Massive. Captain Callum Israel, a man who has dedicated his life to the ocean, now must ask himself—as our planet dies—what it means to be an environmentalist after the world’s ended. Callum and his crew will come up against pirates, rebels, murderers, and thieves as they struggle to remain noble toward their cause. Can you save a planet that’s already doomed?

Another end of the world book from Dark Horse was almost guaranteed to be a winner for me right from the get go.  Regardless, I still went into volume one of The Massive unsure of what the final verdict would be...

Ghost Town

They do
this for the people, to give them back the power.
In an
age where corruption and greed are the letter of the day for the U. S.
government, one group has taken it upon themselves to finally say enough is
enough.  They call themselves the
American Reclamation Front and they are willing to do whatever it takes to wipe
out the overwhelming influence of a government gone wrong.  Action Lab brings you Ghost Town: Ground
Zero, a thrilling new tale, from co-creator Dave Dwonch, of a revolution that was
started with a time machine.
Definitely
the most politically driven comic I’ve ever read, or at least that was
blatantly obvious to me.  Ghost Town:
Ground Zero brings up a lot of what’s wrong with society today and comes up
with some rather bold solutions to these problems...
