In rare lucid moments you see that you are enslaved. You tell yourself that The Service is a helpful interface providing your mind with continual aid and stimulation, but you know it's a lie.
Patrick Whiteside can help you. He doesn't require much: An open mind. Determination. The ability to make sacrifices.

Kane and Hine follow up their cult hit The Bulletproof Coffin with this paranoid tale of troubled romance in an alternative 1950s, where the Bikini Atoll nuclear tests have had an unexpected effect on North America's insects. This one-shot is an epic story of Big Bugs and the men who wrangle them. A Floating World production.

NIGHT'S DOMINION #2
(W/A/CA) Ted Naifeh
When she's not working as a barmaid, Emerane becomes the Night, the most wanted thief in Umber. But when the Furie, Umber's self-proclaimed champion, declares himself her enemy, she's soon penniless and desperate. Her only recourse is to join the Bard and his ragtag team of rogues as they infiltrate the Cult of Uhlume's tower in search of untold riches. The tower is not as it seems, however, and our heroes-if we dare call them such-may find more than they bargained for in its murky depths.

CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE #1
(W) Gerard Way, Jonathan Rivera (A/CA) Michael Avon Oeming
Cave Carson has done it all: survived countless adventures below the Earth's surface, met the love of his life, and gotten a cybernetic eye...somehow. After he and his wife, Eileen, sent their only daughter Chloe off to college, Cave was ready to become just another mundane member of the surface world. That is, until Eileen got sick. Newly widowed, Cave tries to piece his life back together when a knock on the door of his secret underground lab pulls him back into a past that he and Eileen thought they had left buried deep within the Earth.
Adding to his troubles, Cave must determine if his recent hallucinations and visions are the work of his mind or his mysterious cybernetic eye. (Spoiler: It's the eye.)
Written by Gerard Way (DOOM PATROL, Umbrella Academy) and Jon Rivera (Heartbreak), and illustrated by Michael Avon Oeming (Powers), this is an absurdist action-adventure story unlike any other!

(W) Aaron Swetnam (A) Sarah Russell
In September, 2010, a spooky and celestial incident at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station forever alters the lives of five people. Stargazers follows each one of their journeys after the incident as they traverse their extraterrestrial evolutions. This sprawling tale takes our characters across the globe and far away from it to fantastical places in which realities and beings exist that were only supposed to be the stuff of make-believe. Even though their paths diverge, our characters are eventually thrust back together in order to better understand their freaky origins and to maybe even just save their very existence. The series draws inspiration from: Bronze Age cosmic comics, Sci-Fi films of the 80's and 90's, video games, Rick and Morty, Aaron's insane and evil cat, Post It, and countless other things that happen to inspire.
Stargazers is the debut comic book series from Seattle based creators Aaron Swetnam and Sarah Russell.
All three issues are available for purchase in our "Hometown Heroes" section featuring independently crafted comics from the PNW as well across the country! So put down that Batman comic and broaden your horizon with some homemade masterpieces!

Direct from Denver, CO, comes Cosmic Be-Ing. A somewhat autobiographical comic in the tradition of Harvey Pekar and Robert Crumb. Each issue is a stand-alone collection of anecdotes, fictionalizations and other ramblings from the mind and pen of a young woman trapped in the Mile High City.
"I must create to occupy my 'idle hands'. Puberty did awful things to my brain, and each year I become more neurotic, sad & barely grasping common facts of existence. So I've created - or discovered - a mythology that helps me believe my life has purpose. That's where I find my inspiration." - ALEX
Cosmic Be-Ing #2 features a few short examinations of American life in the 21st Century, along with the first part of Angloid, a story of religious guilt, sexuality & alcoholism.
Cosmic Be-Ing #3 features a full-length tale of the rise and downfall of yet another cosmic savior failing to redeem mankind.
LOST BOYS #1

The stakes are raised in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the '80s cult classic vampire film, The Lost Boys. Veteran horror writers Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, NIGHTWING, Hack/Slash), and Scott Godlewski (THE DARK & BLOODY, Copperhead) deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987!
Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to "normal" after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven's head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael's love interest and their lost sister, Star.

LAST GANG IN TOWN TP
(W) Ben Oliver (A) Rufus Dayglo, Adam Cadwell (CA) Rufus Dayglo
This title collecting the 6-issue miniseries kicks off in England, 1976: the country coming apart at its flared corduroy seams, a decade after the Great Train Robbery, when British crime has gone decidedly soft in the middle. Time for a new generation of criminals to rise: a band of snotty-nosed heroes driven by destiny and cheap cider, who will strike fear back into the establishment, put art back into crime and crime back into art, and pull off the heist of the century.
