LOW, VOLUME 1: THE DELIRIUM OF HOPE by Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini Lands in March

Millennia ago, humankind retreated to the bottom of the ocean to escape the scorching radiation of the sun. Everyone knew it was a temporary fix — and now time is running out again. In LOW, the new Image Comics series by Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS) and Greg Tocchini (Last Days of American Crime), one woman believes she can save the human race, and she’s turned her gaze to the stars.

But Stel Caine may be the only one with hope — civilization is deteriorating into hedonism and corruption around her, and she must do all she can to not only save humanity but also keep what’s left of her family from falling apart.
“In terms of her and where she gains her optimism from…it’s faith,” Remender said of Stel in an interview with Comic Book Resources. “Writing a character for the first time that has faith, and has faith in this church, which is based on science instead of being based on a book that was written and mis-transcribed for 3,000 years or something. It doesn't make her a dupe in my mind; it makes her somebody who is the last of a dying breed.”
Artist Tocchini creates a swirling, ethereal environment with vibrant washes of color, while inhabiting LOW’s underwater world with striking characters and futuristic technology.
"Greg and I have been working together long enough that it's like volleyball,” said Remender. “I'll send him some very basic ideas… And then Greg comes back with concepts and model sheet design pieces that are just out of this f*cking world and give me a hundred new ideas.”
A beautiful, fragile world; a society collapsing under its own decadence; a complex woman whose hope keeps her from despair — this is the science fiction world of LOW, VOLUME 1: THE DELIRIUM OF HOPE, in comic book stores on March 25and bookstores on April 7. It is available for pre-order now.

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

After a thrilling video game-like first issue, issue two gives way to the brothers Kray. Aleph is a tech scientist examining the unconscious "56" and marveling at his abilities. He reminds him when his brother Hideki roamed the city as the vigilante Blackdeath. Hideki is a Gladiator (cop) now and he questions Aleph's methods with 56 and its legalities. Nonetheless, they need 56 to be free on the streets for now so they can monitor him. The brothers c…

REVIEW: 'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote, Aaron Campbell, and Jose Villarrubia

'Infidel' #1 by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell arrives at a time when the horrors of everyday life for marginalized people is scary enough but add misogyny and xenophobia from demons and well, that's just multi-dimensional haterade. This contemporary horror story feels timely and brimming with scary thrills.

Writer: Pornsak Pichetshote Artist: Aaron Campbell, Jose Villarrubia Letterer: Jeff Powell Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: March 14, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Aisha is an American Muslim woman who just moved into a haunted apartment building with her boyfriend, his child, and his mother. It's the perfect horror movie set-up that includes a tragic incident that led to the killing of several people, the haunting aftermath of the explosion, a boyfriend's xenophobic possibly racist mother, and terrifying nightmares. Pichetshote has cooked up a potent cauldron consisting of the right horror tropes mixed with equally horr…
