●      New York Magazine’s Vulture calls it, “holiday magic.”

●      Marley’s Ghost is the posthumous completion of legendary creator Harvey Kurtzman’s adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens’ novel—A Christmas Carol. Kurtzman’s ambitious concept for Marley’s Ghost began in the 1950s—as an early “graphic novel”—but was never realized. Now, over 60 years later, writers Josh O’Neill and Shannon Wheeler expand upon Kurtzman’s extensive adaptation notes while illustrator Gideon Kendall’s outstanding artwork utilizes Kurtzman’s breakdowns and stylistic choices to make this long-lost vision a reality!

Parliament of Rooks—For the first time in print!

Written and Illustrated by Abigail Jill Harding

Co-Written and Lettered by Richard Starkings

●      Kieron Gillen, writer of The Wicked + the Divine says, “Abigail Harding is the Queen of the gothic in modern comics. She opens her Parliament of Rooks, and every panel will make you pay homage.”

●      Artist Abigail Jill Harding (Ask For Mercy) makes her first ever longform writing and illustrating debut with the gothic love story Parliament of Rooks, a tale of dark fantasy, forbidden romance, menacing forces, and enchanting characters.

●      When architect Darius Ravenscar wakes from a strange and troubling dream. It becomes clear that something is terribly wrong and Ravenscar finds himself in a precarious predicament that will threaten his long-standing affection for the Princess, Seraphina. As Ravenscar becomes more tormented he searches for the truth, confronting ghosts from the past that haunt him and unraveling the mystery of his family, ultimately becoming torn between two worlds and two minds.

Grammaton Punch, collecting issues 1-5—For the first time in print!

Written by Miles Gunter

Art by Briane Andan

●      AIPT Comics says, “Van’s story expertly explores ideas of growing up and alienation filtered through a “classic” ghost story. With a vibe that reads like Scott Pilgrim and The Frighteners (sorta).”

●      Grammaton Punch is an action-packed story about a boy who sees and fights ghosts. The supernatural story follows a high school freshman who must protect his classmates from the spirits feeding off their adolescent energy, all the while confronting his own self-imposed boundaries that prevent him from connecting with other people.

●      When Van starts his freshman year, he is shocked to discover his high school is ruled by a gang of ghosts feeding off his classmates’ energy. What’s worse, Van’s mom doesn’t believe that there are ghosts. In order to survive, Van will need to level up.

●      Publication date to be announced at a later date.
