The Fade Out #1 Review

By: Rob Neil Gruszecki

A writer in 1940s Hollywood wakes up in unrecognized surroundings to find a young starlet murdered and a hazy memory as to the previous night’s events. Cigarette smoke billowing towards the ceiling amidst a raucous chorus of big-band jazz, the nightlife of the land of fame and fortune bustles on with little sympathy. Dark secrets, murder and intrigue all during the height of McCarthyism in the city of angels. Ingredients for a noir masterpiece.

This is just how it was here…

LOW #1 Review

Low1Low #1 Review

By: Rob Neil Gruszecki

Hundreds of thousands of years into the future the Earth will be swallowed by the expanding sun and life as we know it will be wiped out in a universal inferno. As time continues to tick by on this apocalyptic clock, humanity has retreated under water to build cities in the deep blue to avoid the impending radiation from the threatening sun. Searching for habitable planets and the chance at a new beginning, life always clings to a thin concept that ultimately strings together the prosperity and evolution of 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!
