Tank Girl: 2 Girls 1 Tank #1

Expect a healthy dose of delirium and plenty of ball-crunching action in this high-octane crosscountry skirmish that asks the question: is this world really big enough for two Tank Girls?! Strap yourself in, folks; It’s gonna be one helluva ride!

Titan Comics


The Biggest Bang #1

Born in the cataclysmic cosmic catastrophe known as “The Bigger Bang,” Cosmos traversed the barren egg-lands in-between universes, discovered the wisdom of space whales, defeated intergalactic evil, and found love! Now a new threat presents itself, one the hero has never known… worship! What can he give those who would call him God?

IDW Publishing


Frontlines: Requiem #1

When Earth is in the crosshairs, there’s only one thing standing between survival and destruction: duty. Colonel Soraya Yamin, commander of the Phalanx, a battle-ravaged space control cruiser, engages the “Lankies” in an apocalyptic assault over Mars. The Lankies, a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights humanity at every turn, have been menacing Earth’s colonies. But now they’re suddenly in our Solar System, decimating the NACS fleet and swarming toward Earth itself. Facing insurmountable odds, Soraya must make a fateful choice between her sworn duty and the loved ones she desperately wants to protect.
