Pat Shand: I'm back with my 11th Kickstarter, and this time, I'm teaming up with artist OLIVIA PELAEZ and publisher DEVIL'S DUE COMICS to bring you the graphic novel collection of our horror comic, LITTLE GIRL.

REVIEW: 'Wasted Space' #7 by Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie

Reunions and betrayals! Our reckless heroes stage a rescue mission to save Rex-and secure the nuke still threatening to kill everyone. Along the way, Billy and Molly make a pit stop at a galactic gas station, where they discover brain-freezes and morality, and past demons catch up to Dust and Fury.



WASTED SPACE #7   
Writer: Michael Moreci Artist: Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie Letterer: Jim Campbell Publisher: Vault Comics Release Date: February 27, 2019 Cover Price: $3.99
Score:★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
I've tried to define Vault Comics' brilliant sci-fi adventure series 'Wasted Space' and with each issue, it becomes more entertaining but not as easily described. Sure, there are themes and actions that recall Star Wars and Star Trek but Michael Moreci's dialogue has a rhythm and depth that echoes more Aaron Sorkin than Orson Scott Card.
The artwork by Hayden Sherman and Jason Wordie is so visually striking and unique that it captures the imagination and adds immeasurable dept…

Ferrier and Petraites Take Over 'Rat Queens' Beginning With 'Swamp Romp' One-Shot

Image Comics is pleased to unveil interior pages from the forthcoming Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp one-shot issue and subsequent Rat Queens #16 issue, both of which will debut the all-new creative team on the series, Ryan Ferrier (Death Orb, Criminy) and Priscilla Petraites (Brilliant Trash). Swamp Romp will hit comic shops in April followed by #16 in June.



Dragons. Monsters. Tricksters. The Rat Queens have seen—and slayed!—it all. But in Rat Queens Special: Swamp Romp a dying man of great wealth hires our heroes to exact revenge for the murder of his prized unicorn. Betty, Hannah, Braga, Violet, and Dee are suddenly thrust into a quest that may bring them face-to-face with a mythological creature thought only to exist in bedtime stories. This is Palisade’s urban legend, and it will end with either death or a mass fortune.

Following the one-shot, Ferrier and Petraites will team up with Marco Lesko and take the reins of the ongoing title starting with Rat Queens #16 this June. The i…

There she’ll have to find out which of her friends are still her friends, which are enemies, and who exactly is trying to kill her...and (hopefully) stop them before they succeed.

Convention season is officially underway for 2019, as the doors open to the exhibit hall at Emerald City Comic Con! Lion Forge kicks off day two of the show with the announcement of At the End of Your Tether, an all-new original series from Adam Smith, V.V. Glass, and Hilary Jenkins, set to debut this June!




It’s 1997 and Ludo is heartbroken. Arlo was the only real bond he had made in a stiff military upbringing. But since a move to a different air base led to their breakup, Ludo has been acting out—fights in school, skipping classes... He feels directionless now, and it's beginning to weigh on him.

News of a trip back to their former home means that he will have to face Arlo at some point, so to ease his nerves, he gives her a quick phone call. Big laughs and a familiar sort of cadence in her voice don't just instantly calm him down -- they make him excited to see her. But when his family shows up at the base the next day, they find out Arlo has been missing…for a week.
