Kill The Minotaur #1

Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign…but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur.

There is such a large amount of interesting mythological stories to come out of ancient civilizations across the globe. Some are certainly more well known than others, like that of the minotaur for instance. In the first issue of Kill the Minotaur, we begin a new take on this iconic Greek creature.

Following the loss in a war with Crete, Athens must regularly pay tribute by sacrificing citizens to King Minos...

Regression #1

Story: Cullen Bunn
Art / Cover: Danny Luckert, Marie Enger

Adrian is plagued by ghastly waking nightmares. To understand and possibly treat these awful visions, Adrian reluctantly agrees to past life regression hypnotherapy. As his consciousness is cast back through time, Adrian witnesses a scene of horrific debauchery and diabolism. Waking, he is more unsettled than before, and with good reason—something has followed him back. Adrian descends into a world of occult conspiracy, mystery, reincarnation, and insanity from which there is no escape.

I would say that the best part of this issue is artist Danny Luckert.  With all the horror and paranoia going on in this first issue, Danny’s organic and almost kinetic, frantic art really conveys the mood...

Rose #1

A classic fantasy tale about a girl trying to restore balance to a broken world. Rose must connect with her Khat—Thorne—to become the Guardian the world needs. But things aren’t easy for Rose and Thorne, the powerful sorcerous Drucilla has many powerful and demonic allies—all of them focused on stopping one scared little girl who’s desperately trying to stay alive and do what’s right. Written by MEREDITH FINCH (Wonder Woman, Little Mermaid), and drawn by fan-favorite artist IG GUARA (Batman: Arkham Knight, Blue Beetle, The Ravagers).

So let’s get this out of the way: Rose apparently has nothing to do with Jeff Smith’s Bone. This was my first assumption, seeing as the names “Rose” and “Thorn” are pretty unequivocally linked to Mr. Smith’s series. There is a Bone p...

Black Cloud #1

Zelda was born in a world of dreams, and hers burned bigger than anyone had ever seen. Now she’s on the run in our world, the dreams broken in her hands. But the pieces are for sale, the rich and the powerful are buying, and suddenly her world isn’t the only place Zelda’s running from. From the creators that brought you Spider-Gwen, SOUTHERN BASTARDS, and DRIFTER, and the incredible colorist of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, comes a place where dreams come true–and today, they go to war.

I wasn’t quite sure what to make of Black Cloud. The story fumbles for purchase, and it took a long time to figure out its main point. Ultimately I have to ask myself: are its ideas interesting enough to make up for its annoyances?

The art’s polished, with sketchy, angular linework; the colors are terrific, i...

Cannibal Vol 1

A category five hurricane sweeps through the Southeast, uprooting ancient mosquitoes carrying a virus that causes the infected to crave human flesh. One year later, with no cure in sight, the region has become split over what to do with the victims. For the Hansen family, the answer is simple: kill them. However, all of that changes when the virus infects people they love. CANNIBAL is about a small Everglades town that is just trying to hold onto their everyday lives at the dawn of a cannibal pandemic. Told through the eyes of the Hansen family, it’s an anti-apocalypse story about a community that is too damn stubborn to give in.

I’m not going to pretend the “Southern Apocalypse” hasn’t been done to death at this point. It really began and ended with Preacher, and everything after that ...
