Tokyo Ghost #6

Star Trek: Manifest Destiny #1

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the STAR TREK franchise in 2016 with this all-new bi-weekly comics event beginning in April! It’s Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew vs. the Klingons in the ultimate showdown!

Black Eyed Kids #1

It’s dark. You’re alone. Then there’s a knock. You open the door to find two seemingly normal kids. They ask to come in, to borrow your phone to call for a ride. You find yourself overcome with an intense fear that you can’t explain. And then you notice their eyes… black… SOLID black. You want to run, but now they’re inside. It’s too late. They have you.
