Sandman Mystery Theatre – The Tarantula

Written by Matt Wagner, Art by Guy Davis

In this noir detective tale of intrigue, bigotry and incest, millionaire Wesley Dodds takes on the costumed persona of the Sandman to catch a sadistic killer in 1930s New York. Donning a gas mask, fedora, business suit and cape, Dodds goes after the Tarantula, a brutal kidnapper who is mercilessly preying upon the women of high society. But as the Sandman walks through a world of corruption and deceit, he uncovers the true secret of the murders and their implausible connection to the city’s most prominent family.

‘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!

Outcast #1
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.
