Spawn Kills Everyone [One Shot]

Do you have a favorite hero?! Better change it… they’re dead! If you ever wondered who the strongest hero is, this book answers it! It’s Spawn… he kills every hero!

Is This Tomorrow [One Shot]

Originally published in the midst of the Cold War, Is This Tomorrow? is a classic example of “Red Scare” propaganda. The story envisions a scenario in which the Soviet Union orders American communists to overthrow the US Government. Charles Schulz (Peanuts) contributed to the artwork throughout the issue. Reprinted here for the first time in 70 years.

Cannon Street Press


Demonic #1

Detective Scott Graves will do anything to protect his family… even bargain away his soul. Now, the only thing to fear isn’t New York’s worst criminals, but what’s already raging inside of him. After all, what’s the cost of your soul when it’s already damaged?
