Ship Date 10/8/2014
    Across the globe, century after century, men and women were burned, drowned, hanged, tortured, imprisoned, persecuted, and murdered for witchcraft. None of them were witches. They died protecting a terrible and hidden truth: witches, real witches, are out there. They are ancient, elusive, and deadly creatures that are rarely seen and even more rarely survived. This October, superstar creators SCOTT SNYDER (SEVERED, Batman) and JOCK (SNAPSHOT, Batman) unveil WYTCHES, and introduce you to a world of unimaginable horror in a special EXTRA-SIZED FIRST ISSUE with 30 pages of story and no ads for just $2.99

(W) Michael Moreci (A/CA) Vic Malhotra
“OUR DESTINY IS THE STARS, AND I WILL LEAD US THERE.”
Twenty years after this promise, billionaire Langford Skaargard’s dream of cosmic exploration is no more. Roche Limit, a colony situated on the cusp of a mysterious energy anomaly, is a melting pot of crime and terrible secrets. When Bekkah Hudson goes missing, the search to find her will plunge her sister and a cadre of the colony’s underworld figures into an odyssey that reveals a grim future for mankind. Blending 2001: A Space Odyssey with Blade Runner, ROCHE LIMIT is the first part of a bold sci-fi/noir trilogy.

August 27th Curt Pires returns to Alpha Comics! Visit the shop between 12-5pm to meet Curt Pires and check out his new comic, POP!

POP #1
DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Curt Pires (A) Jason Copland (CA) Dylan Todd
What if the world’s pop stars and celebrities were literally products, grown by the world’s wealthiest (and most depraved) minds-and one of them escaped?

As unique as it is entertaining, POP is a white-knuckled thrill ride through the marketing-mastered, technologically tethered tragicomedy we call life.

o Multiversity Comics named Curt Pires a “Creator to Watch in 2013.”

o ComicBook.com named Jason Copland a “Creator to Watch in 2014.”

o Smart and savage! Sexy and scathing!
