CHICKEN DEVIL #1

Mitchell Moss is about as regular as it gets. He’s married with two children, and co-owns a successful chain of Memphis Hot Chicken restaurants. It’s not the life that screams hero/vigilante…until he discovers that his business partner is in bed with the mob and owes them $2 million. Unfortunately, Mitch is ill-equipped to be a badass—he’s just a guy who makes really good chicken. Can he protect his family from cold-blooded gangsters? Absolutely not.

But maybe the CHICKEN DEVIL can…

Writer Brian Buccellato (Detective Comics, The Flash, Witchblade) and artist Hayden Sherman (COLD WAR, MARY SHELLEY MONSTER HUNTER) serve up a darkly comedic crime drama that’s juicy, tender and finger-lickin’ hilarious.

MANIAC OF NEW YORK Vol. 1: The Death Train

Slashing His Way into Your Heart!

Four years ago, a masked slasher began stalking the streets of New York City.

Maniac Harry is inhuman, unkillable and unstoppable. Which is why the authorities’ solution has been to ignore him, and let New Yorkers adapt to a world where death can strike at any moment. When Maniac Harry starts killing his way through the subway system, trauma-haunted political aide Gina Greene and disgraced NYPD detective Zelda Pettibone become determined to go rogue and destroy him. But how can they fight a monster when they can’t fight City Hall?

From Emmy Award-winning writer Elliott Kalan (The Daily Show, MST3K, Spider-Man & The X-Men) and artist Andrea Mutti (Port of Earth, Hellblazer, BUNNY MASK) comes the horrifying story of what happens when terror becomes the new normal. A frightening, thought-provoking, sometimes funny, always timely tale of murder, obsession and urban living, this volume contains the entire first arc, issues #1-5.

“…so brilliant in its simultaneous subversion and embrace of the sub-genre’s tropes.” – Sam Stone, CBR.com

NUCLEAR FAMILY Vol. 1: Radio Nowhere

Tomorrow Isn’t What it Used to Be.

America, 1957. Elvis dominates the airwaves and apple pie is served after every meal. But, with the dark cloud of nuclear holocaust looming, Korean War vet Tim McClean’s major concern is taking care of his family in the atomic age.

When the first bomb does drop on an unexpecting Midwest city, Tim and his family find themselves plunged into a strange new world, where what’s left of the Unites States has gone underground while continuing to wage war on Russia with unthinkable tactics.

Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story “Breakfast at Twilight,” NUCLEAR FAMILY is written by Stephanie Phillips (Butcher of Paris, Heavy Metal, ARTEMIS AND THE ASSASSIN, RED ATLANTIS) and illustrated by Tony Shasteen (Star Trek). Cold War-era science fiction at its most timely and terrifying, this volume contains issues #1-5.

Another excellent comic from writer Stephanie Phillips…a wonderful take on a cold war nightmare. Philip K. Dick would be proud.” – Jacob Cordas, Comics Bookcase

Order Code: MAR211014

DREAMING EAGLES (Softcover, 2nd Printing)

“We had our dreams too, you know. Long before Doctor King had his.”

Inspired by true events, DREAMING EAGLES tells the story of the first African American fighter pilots to join the United States Army Air Force in WWII and whose humble beginnings in Tuskegee, Alabama propelled them into the deadly skies above Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.

Not only were they instrumental against the Nazi war machine, but also braved an equally great challenge, overcoming everyday bigotry amongst their fellow American soldiers as well as civilians at home. High in the heavens, they fought a battle that would change their country and their world forever.

Industry legend Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys, Hellblazer, A WALK THROUGH HELL, OUT OF THE BLUE) joins artist Simon Coleby (2000 AD, The Authority) for this high-flying tale of love, war and family.

Released to coincide with the 80th Anniversary of the founding of the Tuskegee Airmen, this new softcover volume contains the entire series, Issues #1-6.

“Packed with history and heart, DREAMING EAGLES is a strongly character-driven piece from writer and creator Garth Ennis.” – Rebecca Booth, Big Comic Page

SHADOW DOCTOR

The Past Wasn’t Always So Black and White.

Years in the making, this is the true story of writer Peter Calloway’s grandfather, Nathaniel Calloway, a Black man who graduated from medical school in the early 1930s. Unable to get work at any Chicago hospital (because he was Black) and unable to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice (because he was Black), Nathaniel turned to the only other source of money in Prohibition-era Chicago: the Mafia, run by none other than Al Capone.

One of the most profoundly fascinating, startling and significant stories AfterShock has ever published, SHADOW DOCTOR features the artwork of Eisner Award-winner Georges Jeanty (The American Way, X-Tremists) and covers illustrated by the inimitable Mark Chiarello! This volume contains issues #1-5.

“SHADOW DOCTOR blew me away.” – Chris Beveridge, The Fandom Post

Something Evil is Festering in the Heartland of America.
And Then There Are the Vampires.

Charles “Chip” Ipswich isn’t one of those coastal elites with a liberal arts degree and a job at a social media start-up who knows where all the best brunch places are…

No, Chip is one of the “forgotten men.” He lives in a rural area in the middle of the country where Jesus still has a place at the dinner table and where factories send jobs to Calcutta.

Chip is also a vampire.

Stuck working the last shift at a gas station, Chip is lonely and bored…and then his dull, bleak life is turned upside down when SHE comes to town.

Tim Seeley (BRILLIANT TRASH) and Corin Howell (Ghostbusters, X-Files Origins: Scully, Bat-Mite) bring you a deeper shade of fear – a contemporary and horrifying tale of vampirism in the heart of America. This 256-page hardcover edition collects issues #1-10.
