Justin Jordan Goes Dark

The Dark Gods are returning and only a few mysterious people from an organization called “The Storm” can stand between the chaos and the innocent.  In the first issue of Dark DarkGods1-regGods, we are introduced to Josh Resnick, a guy literally in the wrong place at the wrong time.  As the forces of chaos literally have sprung up from beneath his feet in a seemingly normal office building, Josh has to survive much more than standard office politics.  Now coworkers practice ritual sacrifice and horrific creatures from the world of nightmares are out to kill him.

DarkGods1-DietyThe first two issues of Justin Jordan’s Dark Gods reveal a world that is on the brink, unbeknownst to the general population.  As the creatures from the void force their way into the world we know, the dam that holds the chaos at bay is reaching its snapping point. Soon the insanity of the elder gods will be loose and nothing will be able to save the human race.

DarkGods1-SirenIf you enjoy action-horror comics and want a taste of something fresh, give Dark Gods a try.  Issue #1 is in stores now and available digitally from ComiXology.

Battle of the Battleships

Uber19-WarCrimesKieron Gillen’s fans have been taken on a powerful ride through a violent alternate history in which World War II has taken a terrifying turn.  With the introduction of the Ubers into the waning days of the war, the death and chaos of extended super human warfare has turned history on its ear.

Uber19-regAs we have seen other countries begin to develop their own super soldiers in an attempt at slowing the German Battleships, we’ve been leading up to the inevitable…a battle between Battleship class Ubers.  There is much speculation about which country will be the first to develop a successful Battleship after the terrible turn that Battleship HMH Colossus took when facing the German weapon Sigelinde.  As England, Russia, Uber19-wrapand the United States vie for control of the technology and the first successful counter to the Germans, we continue to read along and wonder who it will be.

If you have not been reading Kieron Gillen and Caanan White’s Uber series, it is a must-find at the comic shop for you.  This is one of the most powerful narratives being published and like the countdown clock to doomsday, it is nearing the tolling of the bell.  What horror await in Uber…find issue #19 in your local comic shops now along with Volumes 1 and 2 of the trade paperback collections.  Join in the fight!

Avatar Press New in Comic Shops 11/5/14

New Avatar Press items in comic shops Wednesday 11/5/4:

God is Dead Vol 3 TP

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:      Mankind prayed for salvation.  As the gods of mythology God-is-Dead-V3fought and destroyed around them, they hoped and spoke in hushed tones of the return of the Christian God.  Now Jesus Christ has risen and once again walks among mortals.  But thousands of years of recounting the stories of the Bible won’t prepare people for the truth about the All Powerful.  They believed that Jesus was the savior of the human race and that he would return to do so again.  Now the Son of God has come back but his salvation comes as the most horrific of prices. The most audacious arc of God Is Dead has arrived as MIKE COSTA delivers the intensity and darkness in a world of divine wrath.  God is Dead Vol 3 TP collects issues #13 – 18 of the ongoing comic book series.
