In a not-too-distant future, artificial intelligence has spawned a race of robots that serve all of humanity. Robots are considered second class citizens, but a few in the A.I. community are fighting back in a constant struggle for equal rights.

When a debilitating virus called “Rust” threatens all artificial life, salvation lies in the most unlikely of robotic heroes — not a warrior or a solider, but an obsolete construction worker and a dedicated caregiver. Together, HALE-19 and AMBER-7T embark on a perilous journey in search of a cure that could potentially change the balance of power on Earth forever.

“VOLITION is a dream for fans of science fiction: robots, mystery, and sumptuous visuals. AfterShock Comics continues to show it’s a leader in world-building books.” – Patrick Hayes, SciFi Pulse

The second and final volume of Garth Ennis’ oversized hardcover original graphic novel series.

Jamie McKenzie’s fighter-bomber strike missions against the Germans get even deadlier, but his ongoing feud with his own commanding officer is no picnic either. His loving wife Beth provides a surprise or two of her own – but Jamie soon finds that there are those who’ve paid a steeper price than himself in the battle with Hitler’s Reich. The stage is set for a showdown high above the frozen fjords of Norway, as a horde of Nazi fighters lie in wait for the RAF Mosquito squadrons.

Writer Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys) and artist Keith Burns (War Stories) reunite after the success of their series Johnny Red, presenting another tale of World War Two aerial combat – featuring skies black with flak and enemy fighters, nail-biting low-level action, and the dark humor of men whose lives can be snatched away at any second… Out of the Blue.

“Politics, racism, jealousy, and what you could call toxic masculinity all presented with trademark black humour…The artistry displayed…is off the scale.” – Adam Brown, Big Comic Page

Thrice-Nine took Sasha’s brother, and it took Maria’s heart.

Plagued by the ramifications of a techno-magic world now thirty years gone, Thrice-Nine limps along, degenerating into paranoia and poison. Sasha Vasnetsov thought he’d escaped all that, but when news comes that his younger brother has been kidnapped by the secret police, he drags himself back into the madness with a simple goal — to find his brother.

But Sasha is going to need help to do this, and he enlists Maria Kamenaya, a former warrior with hundreds of enemy kills to her name, who was betrayed by the very country she served. This quest is how they get both of those things back, in the lawless land of decapitated states…the land of DEAD KINGS.

Written by Steve Orlando (Batman/Shadow, Crude, Midnighter, Virgil) and drawn by Matthew Dow Smith (October Girl, Suicide Squad, X-Files) DEAD KINGS is an in-depth exploration of retribution, in all its dark, complex forms.

The Khourys are a classic immigrant success story: a Lebanese family who carved their slice of the American Dream by becoming the largest distributors of vending machine sandwiches in the upper northern Midwest.

Fealty is demanded, shots are fired and long-hidden family secrets are fully revealed. Now Dorothy Khoury, the daughter of the family patriarch, is forced to unite her splintered bloodline and fight back.

So these two FBI agents walk into a warehouse…

Special Agents Shaw and McGregor handle the routine cases nowadays, which is just the way Shaw likes it.

But what they find waiting is far from routine, as the local police have already discovered to their cost. Before the night is out, our heroes will encounter terror beyond their most appalling nightmares – in a place where the night may never end at all.

A new kind of horror story for modern America, written by Garth Ennis (JIMMY’S BASTARDS, DREAMING EAGLES, Preacher, The Boys, Crossed) and drawn by Goran Sudžuka (Y: The Last Man, Hellblazer)

Panacea Cryonics promised a life after death, by freezing the heads of their clients and reviving them in the near future, when technology would guarantee them a life free of disease and trouble. However, as clients are finally revived, they learn this corporate pitch was too good to be true – instead of stepping into a life of their dreams, they awaken into a never-ending nightmare.

The world is at war – and this recently revived group of every day people are handed a gun, body armor and an ultimatum. They must fight in this war, against unknown opponents and horrors, in order to secure their place in a brave new world that doesn’t want them around.

And as these normal people survive wave after wave of technologically advanced horrors, they soon realize the answers to their questions are no comfort, and the future that they wanted might never be in sight.

From Christopher Sebela (Blue Beetle, Kiss/Vampirella, Evolution) and Hayden Sherman (The Few, John Carter: The End) comes an uncompromising science-fiction epic, as violent as it is beautiful. COLD WAR Vol 1 contains the entire pulse-pounding first arc, issues #1-5.

“Sebela turns the common tropes of war fiction on their head and, in the surreal and unsettling future built by Hayden Sherman’s art, creates a core cast of characters made relatable by their discomfort and their longing for the world and families they’ve left behind.” – C.K. Stewart, NEWSARAMA

High in the heavens, they fought a battle that would change their country for all time.
