A decade ago, 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them, but after many years, they gave up. Nathan Cole...won't. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those still living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe...Nathan is looking for something else? Why can't he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

 

If a catastrophic event befell our world and your family was taken away from you, how far would you go to find again? What would you risk? Would you face lands of unspeakable destruction? A lost world filled with the deadliest of creatures? Nathan Cole would. If it means getting those back he lost. He would go anywhere. He would risk everything.

Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead, Outcast) and  Lorenzo De Felici's new Skybound series, Oblivion Song, takes you to the far ends of the darkest places while tugging at your heart strings.

Gideon Falls #1

Heather's Pick

Writer: Jeff Lemire
Art: Andrea Sorrentino
Colors: Dave Stewart
Letter: Steve Wands

A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city's trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.

 

A shadow has fallen on a small town. The Black Barn has appeared and the omen can only bring about death. Will the confluence of events that happen around the small town bring destruction or is it merely fate that will bring blood? When it comes to suspense. Conspiracy. Mystery. Gideon Falls from Image Comics is an absolute must. Issue #1 is here!

It is also... Sold out! The series is so good that we could not keep it on the racks. If you were not able to grab a copy while we had it, come in and make a pre-order. The 2nd Print will be available on April 4th.

Another week. Another set of books! Come by the store and we can offer you even more!

One Experimental Summer! It's the hottest, most boring part of the year-so can you blame Summer for going exploring in Grandpa Rick's garage for a dimension where she gets what she wants? She'll learn a little about science, a lot about life, and a whole bunch about having a crush on a girl.

It is the long anticipated Summer Issue! No.. No... Not like the "Summer", warm sun, playing on the beach issue. But Summer's Issue!

From Writers Tini Howard and Magdalene Visaggio, along with artists CJ Cannon and Katy Farina, watch as Summer explores strange new worlds, experiences new loves and new loses. Rick and Morty #33 is here and it's waiting for you!

Melba is assigned to her first case, investigating a series of child disappearances in rural Georgia.

This world is filled with Monsters. Monsters that you or I may not see, but ones that stalk the minds of those most impressionable. Those who's minds are weak, they are the ones that know the truth. For they are the only ones to see them, the IMPs (Interdimensional Mental Parasites). Tim Seeley (Grayson) and Stephen Molnar (Danger Girl Renegade) bring their Slender Man murder style horror story to life in Melba's tale of Aliens, Psychopathy and Mystery!
