NEW CRUSADERS: RISE OF THE HEROES #1
Red Circle Comics presents “Ashes to Ashes,” Part One! Our world demands heroes, and a new generation must rise! Over a decade ago, the super hero team known as The Mighty Crusaders did the impossible: they won. Successful in their battle against evil and finding they’d made the world a better place, the heroes settled down to the small town of Red Circle to start families, unwind and take a much-deserved rest. When the quiet town is rocked by the return of the ultimate evil, the super hero residents are obliterated! It’s up to their heirs to fight for justice and crusade against evil. They are our last, best hope. They are The New Crusaders!

‘68: RULE OF WAR #1 from Image Comics
Writer: Mark Kidwell • Artist: Jeff Zornow, Jay Fotos
In a doom-shadowed Cambodia infested with the living dead, CIA Special Agent Declan Rule and his canine companion Nero stalk a human monster, a neurosurgeon bent on carrying out grisly experiments that turn P.O.W.s into vicious instruments of war. In Vietnam, Private Kuen Yam and his ragtag band of survivors battle their way across a murderous no-man’s-land in a desperate search for a ticket to the skies. The war is over, but the battle for humanity’s survival has just begun. Courage will be tested, sanity will be pushed to the breaking point and the rules of war… will be broken.
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!
Purchase of Outcast #1 required.
