68 HOMEFRONT #1 (OF 4)
IMAGE COMICS
(W) Mark Kidwell (A) Kyle Charles, Jay Fotos (CA) Jay Fotos, Nat Jones
In 1968, the horrors of the Vietnam war invaded every American living room. On February 13th of that year, a new war began, bringing horror…and hunger home to stay. ’68: HOMEFRONT returns the series to the American heartland and the small, sleepy town of Harbinger, Pennsylvania (home of the Heralds) in the first two-issue story arc, “’68: PEECE AND LOVE.” Fresh accident victims sit up on morticians’ slabs, a busload of visiting athletes rises from wet red asphalt to become an army of the damned, and Jenny Love-homecoming queen, cheerleader, and girl next door-prepares to reveal her deepest secret to the world. A secret in the form of leather-clad town bad boy, Johnny Love.

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.

pop

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!
