Avatar Press New to ComiXology 5/27/15

These are the new Avatar Press items that are arriving digitally at ComiXology on Wednesday 5/27/15:

Dark Gods #6

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:     The final issue of the first powerful arc of Justin Jordan’s Dark DarkGods6-regularGods is here! The agents of The Storm must face the rising tide of ancient monsters from the void of Chaos. Their mission has been to stop the flood of horrors, but what happens if they fail? The world as we know it must evolve as everyday people that lived in ignorance of the monsters just outside their vision are brought face-to-face with the grinning devils of other dimensions. The Dark Gods have arrived. German Erramouspe illustrates this new series with special painted sequences by Michael DiPascale.

 

 

God is Dead #36

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:      This is it, everything from the entire series comes to a head as GodisDead36_Regvolume six wraps up in carnage! Mike Costa has been building for years towards this massive culmination of every plot thread to date. Whatever you expect, there is no way this won’t be amazing!

 

 

 

 

 

Providence #1

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:     The most important work of 2015 begins here with the long-Providence01_regularawaited arrival of Alan Moore’s breathtaking epic PROVIDENCE with his artistic partner Jacen Burrows. In his most carefully considered work in decades, Moore deconstructs all of Lovecraft’s concepts, reinventing the entirety of his work inside a painstakingly researched framework of American history. Both sequel and prequel to NEONOMICON, PROVIDENCE begins in 1919 and blends the mythical visions of HPL flawlessly into the cauldron of racial and sexual intolerance that defined that era on the East Coast of America. Every line from artist Jacen Burrows is perfectly honed to complete this immersive experience. The result is a breathtaking masterpiece of sequential art that will define modern horror for this generation. Invoking a comparison it to a prior literary masterpiece is not something to be handled lightly, but in scope, importance and execution: Providence is the Watchmen of horror.

Uber #25

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:      Gillen and Gete return to the war in the Pacific as we revisit Uber25_Regthe state of Japan. With the failed atomic weapon, the decisive end in the Pacific has not been found and the grinding war of attrition takes a vast toll on both sides. The superhuman advantage of Japan is equaled in many ways by the firepower advantage of the USA. So the bodies continue to pile to the heavens…

Mercury Heat Debut Free on ComiXology 5/20/15

mercury-heat-fcbd-2015Kieron Gillen’s brand new ongoing sci-fi series, Mercury Heat will be free to sample on ComiXology tomorrow, Wednesday 5/20/15.  This special issue was a part of Free Comic Book Day this year and now as a way of reaching out to fans who couldn’t make it to the big event or didn’t have a participating comic shop near them, everyone will be able to read this premiere installment free digitally on ComiXology.

Mercury Heat introduces us to Luiza, a little girl with big dreams and a problem.  In the future your occupation is decided by your neuroprofile – an automated system determines based on your genetic markers and predispositions what you will do in the future.  Luiza just wanted to be a police officer.  She wanted to help people and keep the peace.  But her Kieron Uber 1profile was far too unstable…in fact there are precious few occupations for this particular set of markers.

Now Luiza is a bounty agent on the wild west frontier of Mars.  Tracking down illegal mining henchmen and cyborgs is all in a days work for her.  And you can find out what makes Luiza special in this great debut issue.  Check it out and look for Mercury Heat #1 coming up in July!

MERCURY-HEAT_01_RegularLocal comic shops are finalizing their orders for product shipping in July and at the top of that list is Kieron Gillen’s newest ongoing series, Mercury Heat.  Fans will recognize the title from this year’s Free Comic Book Day event where the Mercury Heat Debut issue introduced us to Luiza, a young lady with an unusual dream and a specific neuroprofile.

MERCURY-HEAT_01_Excessive ForceLuiza’s genetic markers and personality type made her an unstable choice for a police officer but the perfect choice for a bounty agent.  On Mars the wild west lives again only inhabited by hard-as-nails miners and cyborg outlaws.  Now she must stay one step ahead of the dawn and put down threats to the population with extreme prejudice.  Be one of the first to experience this new vision of the future from one of today’s best writers.
