WHITE ASH #4 continues the incredible modern fantasy epic! A must for fans of MIDDLEWEST, Y: THE LAST MAN and more!

We’ve been loving this incredible modern fantasy series in the vein of MIDDLEWEST, SWEET TOOTH, and Y: THE LAST MAN, and are super stoked for issue #4 this week!

In WHITE ASH #4, a tragic death leaves the residents of White Ash reeling.  More of the Town’s secret past is revealed as we get our first glimpse of the “Longest Night.” The incomparable Glarien makes her debut appearance cutting a bloody path on to the scene.

What is WHITE ASH? Welcome to White Ash, a small smudge of a town in western Pennsylvania, where mining is a generational calling and the secrets are buried deeper than the coal in the mountain.

As Aleck Zwerg tries to escape that legacy and head off to college, he falls into the orbit of the enigmatic Lillian Alden.

Together, they race down a dangerous path, leading Aleck to uncover a secret about his family that changes everything he knows about himself and White Ash. And now, if he leaves, there will be no one left to protect the people of the town from an ancient evil that has just returned.

We’ve got issues 1-4 available to catch you up!

NORTH BEND #2 continues the eerie mind-control meets the supernatural meets Cold War madness we loved in issue #1! Imagine THE AMERICANS TV series meets HP LOVECRAFT!

We LOVED the debut of NORTH BEND, as it takes the eerie almost otherworldly paranoia of Lovecraftian horror and blends it with the Cold War thrills of THE AMERICANS.

In the not too distant future, the U.S. is at war — against Russia, and its own people. The country is on the verge of economic collapse and political revolution.

Desperate to regain control, the CIA recruits Seattle DEA Agent Brendan Kruge to test an experimental mind control drug on unwitting Americans. Compelled by his sense of duty to his country, Brendan struggles to keep his life from falling apart as he tries to reconcile his personal beliefs with the security of the nation.

In issue #2, the cold war continues when a DEA agent is recruited to test a mind control drug on unwitting Americans. Brendan sets up the Seattle safe house, clashing with someone who puts the entire project at risk before it even gets off the ground. Meanwhile, Annie’s search for the stolen cash leads her down a road that could cost her everything.

We’ve been LOVING Wretches, and we’re pumped to see the 5th issue dropping this week!

What’s the scoop on it? Alone on the tough streets of an alien city, far from the lifeless planet they once called home, siblings Shea and Sean spent their youth struggling to survive. Still suffering emotionally from the loss of everything they’d ever known and loved, Shea and Sean have nothing else in the universe but each other.

Forever outrunning the horrors of their past, they survive the only way they know how- by hunting and killing sentient robots for profit!

Now, when the rough path that they had no chance to follow finally catches up to them, will they be able to keep each other safe or will they lose the only important thing they have left, each other?

In WRETCHES #5 this week, Sean is forced to help the twisted bot who’d kidnapped him in the first place, as he attempts to infiltrate an alien city and rob the local drug-lord.

The reward for his aid in this violent raid- the “promise” of getting Shea back in one-piece once they succeed.

After being taken through their slums, Shea begins to recognize that the average bots and their wants aren’t any different than those of humans – to live their lives in peace.

Unfortunately for her, these bots are still under the rule of a power-hungry tyrant, and her execution is imminent.
