True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys TP
Writer: Shaun Simon, Gerard Way • Artist: Becky Cloonan
Years ago, the Killjoys fought against the tyrannical megacorporation Better Living Industries, costing them their lives, save for one – the mysterious Girl. Today, the followers of the original Killjoys languish in the Desert while BLI systematically strips citizens of their individuality. As the fight for freedom fades, it’s left to the Girl to take up the mantle and bring down the fearsome BLI!

Meet artist Paul Azaceta at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, June 26th for a signing of Outcast #1, the highly anticipated new series from Robert Kirkman!
Writer: Robert Kirkman • Artist: Paul Azaceta, Elizabeth Breitweiser
In this new horror series from Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and now he needs answers. Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it.
The series will debut at 40 pages for just $2.99–a strategy previously employed by Saga. “I’m trying to make the book as creepy and cool and dark as possible, and really do some horror stuff with it,” Azaceta said.
We may have another series just as great as Walking Dead on our hands with Outcast #1! Hope you can all make it out for our signing with Paul Azaceta!
