Romulus #1

Our world isn’t free. All of us, for generations, have lived under the secret control of The Ancient Order of Romulus. One young woman, raised by them, trained by them, betrayed by them, must push through her fear to take a stand against the silent evil that masters our world. Her name is Ashlar, and her war begins with the brutal first chapter of the new Image series ROMULUS, from writer BRYAN HILL (POSTAL) and artist NELSON BLAKE II (MAGDELENA).

Nine pages of exposition.

Nine.

And then…?

A brief ninja fight. That’s it. That’s the story.

Romulus is two different comics: the first is the illustrated comic, which is quite beautiful in places. Nelson Blake II tries to break through with elegant, graphical, almost symbolist touches that somehow “artify” its mainstream style...

A.D.: After Death Book 1

WHAT IF WE FOUND A CURE FOR DEATH? Two of comics’ most acclaimed creators, SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, Batman, American Vampire) and JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, Moon Knight, Sweet Tooth) unite to create a three-part epic like no other, set in a future where a genetic cure for death has been found. Years after the discovery, one man starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past and his own mortality.

To this day, man still does everything in its power using medicine and technology to stave off death as long as possible. What would it be like if we found a way to actually stop death though? The endless life of one man in book one of A.D.: After Death is explored and it’s nothing like what you’d expect.

The opening and a good am...

Violent Love #1

Daisy Jane and Rock Bradley were two of the most notorious bank robbers in the American Southwest. And then they fell in love. Join FRANK J. BARBIERE (FIVE GHOSTS, The Revisionist) and VICTOR SANTOS (THE MICE TEMPLAR, Polar) for a pulp-infused criminal romance oozing with style and action!

Who doesn’t love a good old robbery or heist story, complete with crazy gangsters and heartwrenching backstories? Now add in the fact that this is a turbulent love story at the same time and you’ve just upped the ante. In the first issue of Violent Love, we set the foundation for what’s sure to be a high speed thrill ride worth holding on for.

Life wasn’t always smooth sailing for Daisy and her father, but they managed, supporting each other through it all...

Mayday #1

A Cold War action-thriller like no other. It’s 1971, and two young Soviet operatives are sent to California to kill a defector and recover top-secret information. As the mission falls apart into a mess of good sex, bad drugs, and ugly violence, the young Russians are faced with a dilemma: they need to rely on each other to escape America, but they must betray each other to survive Russia. By critically-acclaimed thriller writer ALEX DE CAMPI with art by TONY PARKER and BLOND.

Mayday is nuts.

In terms of Cold War cloak-and-daggery, there’s not a whole lot going on here; it’s more an evocation of the times (or a popular image of the times) than an actual setting. There’s not much plot. I didn’t really buy the characters. But that’s not the point of Mayday, really...
