BLOOD-STAINED TEETH #1

(W) Christian Ward (A) Patric Reynolds (CA) Christian Ward


SERIES PREMIERE!


CHRISTIAN WARD, the Eisner Award-winning co-creator of ODY-C, Invisible Kingdom, and Machine Gun Wizards, returns to Image with red-hot artist PATRIC REYNOLDS (The Mask) for an all-new ONGOING SERIES-a fast-paced 100 Bullets-style crime saga with fangs! Atticus Sloane-misanthrope, criminal, asshole, and vampire-lives in a world where blood isn't the only thing vamps crave. And for the right price, he'll make you a vampire too. After all, immortality isn't cheap. FEB220029


Why this caught my eye:

I really like the tone off the preview pages, plus I love a grumpy vampire who doesn't like the new social media trends of vampirism.

 

I HATE THIS PLACE #1

(W) Kyle Starks (A/CA) Artyom Topilin, Lee Loughridge


SERIES PREMIERE


FOR FANS OF GIDEON FALLS AND HOME SICK PILOTS!


After inheriting a farm house, Trudy and Gabby are ready to start the next chapter of their lives together...except it's already home to a mysterious force that's attracted ghosts, aliens, and all kinds of supernatural beings for decades.


Now, Gabby and Trudy must play by the "house rules" in order to survive living among the most frightening creatures on Earth in this new series from KYLE STARKS (ASSASSIN NATION, THE SIX SIDEKICKS OF TRIGGER KEATON) and ARTYOM TOPILIN (ICE CREAM MAN PRESENTS: QUARANTINE COMIX SPECIAL).

Why this caught my eye:

Saw some early articles and preview pages that just looked fun, plus I like Topilin's art.

 

GRIM #1

(W) Stephanie Phillips (A/CA) Flaviano


Jessica Harrow is dead. But her journey has only just begun!


Discover the world of the afterlife, where Jessica has been recruited as a Reaper, tasked with ferrying countless souls to their final destination.


But unlike the rest of the Reapers, she has no memory of what killed her and put her into this predicament.


In order to unravel the mystery of her own demise, she'll have to solve an even bigger one - where is the actual GRIM REAPER?


From acclaimed writer Stephanie Phillips (Harley Quinn) and fan favorite artist Flaviano (New Mutants) comes a bold new vision of what comes after, and the nature of death itself!

MAR220773


Why this caught my eye:

'People becoming reapers' feels like its own genre now, but I'm always down to see what people can bring to the table. Plus Flaviano's art in the previews does look really nice.

 

MARIA LLOVET'S PORCELAIN HC

(W) Maria Llovet (A/CA) Maria Llovet


Beryl's life in the desert, living with her aunt and her cat, is relatively simple...until the day she finds and enters the Dollhouse.


Stuck inside an ever-changing mystery house that hunts children and turns them into dolls, Beryl goes on a psychedelic journey where she must face the notion of her own limitations and move past them...before she becomes the building's newest prey.


PORCELAIN is a labyrinth of a psychologically thrilling experience told in a way that only acclaimed creator Maria Llovet (Faithless, Heartbeat, Loud, Eros/Psyche) can tell it.


The hardcover collection of PORCELAIN includes issues 1-5 of the hit series along with complete cover gallery and bonus material.

JAN221090


Why this caught my eye:

I really love Llovet's art style plus the set up for this sounds intriguing and the preview pages look pretty great.

 

DARK ROOM HC

(W) Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Scott Buoncristiano, Tamra Bonvillain


The hunt for a camera containing an undeveloped photo of the face of true evil threatens to wipe out New York City one chilly autumn evening. Doune Mahoney is the curator of a private collection of extremely dangerous cursed objects, and her night's about to go to hell. Werewolves, secret societies, blessed animals, cursed objects, and more, in a fantasy horror comedy from X-Men and Deadpool writer GERRY DUGGAN, your new favorite artist SCOTT BUONCRISTIANO, and color artist extraordinaire TAMRA BONVILLAIN. Take a deep dive into THE DARK ROOM, a world the creators will be returning to for many years. Includes the first appearance of your new favorite characters, including Walt, the dancing bones of Times Square, and his blessed boom box.

MAR220085


Why this caught my eye:

You had me at skeleton in a track suit.

 

That's it for this batch, we'll hit up some sci-fi on the next round!
