Hellbreak Vol 1

There are thousands of Hells, each unique, each terrible. With the proper tools and know-how… you can infiltrate Hell whether you’re dead or not. Project Kerberos has developed this forbidden technology, and a special forces extraction team is dispatched to rescue lost souls from the infernal realm.

“From the moment you were dragged screaming and bloody from your cow of a mother…you start building damnation…brick by brick…and you carry hell around with you for the rest of your days.”

Exodus The Life After #1

Jude has been sent right back where he started: Purgatory. With no memory of his previous adventures or relationships, Jude’s existence is stark and empty. Yet, just outside his awareness, his friends—including the late, great Ernest Hemingway and a very tenacious preteen girl—struggle to free him. Because in the quest to overthrow God himself, the only person who stands a chance is his son.

In the debut of this series we see an act of terrorism that is really just an attempt to wake Jude up foiled by bad timing and a few decidedly demonic angels, talking rabbits, God and Satan disagreeing in a nightclub hosting musicians that have been dead and gone for decades and a last ditch effort from Hemingway and the girl to get through to Jude...

Mermin Volume 2: The Big Catch

Could Mermin be an Alien from outer space? That’s the big question and the basis for the second book about the mysterious fish boy written and illustrated by Jerry Weiser. Two rather strange, self-proclaimed alien hunters learn of Mermin through publicity over his exploits in the first story, and hope to capture him, gaining notoriety for themselves. The men track their quarry and his pals in a haphazard manner. One of them first attempts to snare this “alien” with a net, which he tears through with ease, and thinking the man to be a fisherman tells him he’s not the kind of fish normally caught.

From a library trip with friends, where Mermin’s identity as a prince of Mer is revealed, to a search for a new clubhouse, the intrepid fish boy manages to stay one step ahead of the alien hunters...

This children’s comic is a fish out of water story.  The lead character is literally a fish boy, who becomes dissatisfied with life in his undersea kingdom of Mer and decides to see what life is like on dry land.
