BOOM STUDIOS, publishers of SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, ONCE AND FUTURE and RED MOTHER, unveil their next huge hit with the sci-fi thriller ALIENATED this Wednesday in ALIENATED #1!

We’re huge fans of the incredible books coming out of BOOM STUDIOS these days, with hits like SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, RED MOTHER, and ONCE AND FUTURE hooking us in a big way!

So, it’s no secret that we’re stoked about their next big release, ALIENATED!

In ALIENATD, acclaimed writer Simon Spurrier (John Constantine Hellblazer, Coda) and artist Chris Wildgoose (Batgirl, Batman: Nightwalker) present a subversive coming-of-age story about having all the power to change the world but the unready hands to truly wield it.

Three teenagers, each an outcast in their own way, stumble upon an unearthly entity as it’s born. As they bond over this shared secret and the creature’s incredible abilities, it becomes clear to the teenagers that their cute little pet is a super-predator in the making – and it’s in need of prey.

Guided by the best intentions at first, the teens’ decisions soon become corrupted by adolescent desires, small town jealousies, and internal rivalries, sending them into a catastrophic spiral of their own making.

HARLEY QUINN & THE BIRDS OF PREY #1 debuts an epic BLACK LABEL imprint take on Harley courtesy of the legendary Harley creative team of AMANDA CONNER & JIMMY PALMIOTTI!

If you love the new Harley Quinn animated series — you’ll love this!

The creative team that transformed Harley Quinn forever returns to shake up her world once more-and this time, the gloves are off! 


Harley Quinn has avoided Gotham City ever since she broke up with The Joker and found a home, and a kind of family, in Coney Island. But when she gets an offer she can’t refuse, she has no choice but to slip back into the city as quietly as she can, hoping to be gone before anyone-especially her ex-learns she’s been there.

But for Harley, “as quietly as she can” is plenty loud…and before she can say “Holee bounty hunters, Batman,” The Joker’s sicced every super-villain in the city on her pretty ombré head-and the only team tough enough (or crazy enough) to come to her defense is the Birds of Prey!


The foul-mouthed, no-holds-barred sequel to one of DC’s raciest runs is here! Get on board early, before we come to our senses!
