DARK SPACES WILDFIRE #1

(W) Scott Snyder (A) Hayden Sherman


Six weeks into the slow burn of the historic Arroyo Fire, a crew of women from an inmate firefighting program are risking everything on the frontlines when their newest recruit - a white-collar convict with a deep network of shady dealers - discovers they're mere miles from her crooked former associate's mansion. When she proposes a plan to abandon their duties and hunt for riches under cover of smoke and ash, the team must decide if they're ready to jeopardize their one sure path back to normalcy for a shot at a score that would change their lives... But is this a flicker of fortune or a deadly trap? Scott Snyder and breakout artist Hayden Sherman craft an unforgettable heist for a new age in Dark Spaces: Wildfire.

Why this caught my eye:

I like the setup, and I'm interested in seeing more Snyder work that isn't horror or Batman. Plus I'm liking Sherman's artwork and I like seeing his star rise.

 

MIND MGMT BOOTLEG #1 (OF 4)

(W) Matt Kindt (A/CA) Farel Dalrymple


MIND MGMT is: weird, mind-blowing, paranoid storytelling. It is the first ever comic book from Flux House, Matt Kindt's all-new imprint which features crime, science fiction, and humor stories, all told in startling and untraditional ways. Upcoming publications will take many forms, and the polybagged variant versions of MIND MGMT will contain a card that is playable as a playing card or as part of a new Flux House game. Previously in MIND MGMT: a covert government agency of psychic superspies fell into oblivion after one of their top agents went rogue. What looked like the end was only the beginning as a former leader of MIND MGMT explores the darkest parts of the world and recruits a team of forgotten agents to rebuild the organization, bend reality, and go to war with a competing agency.

Innocente's artwork caught my eye and I'm interested in seeing more of her narrative work.

Why this caught my eye:

Moore's work has never really clicked for me but I know plenty who follow him whenever they can, so just a little signal flare here.
