Vindicated, Inc., a successful Kickstarter project, answers the question of how one disabled veteran deals with his PTSD. An action series written and drawn by Gerry Kissell with cover art by Mr. Kissell and Drew Moss, this first issue hits the ground running.

If a revolution has any chance of succeeding, then a person must choose between what he wants and what is needed.  Sander, a working-class peon and unwitting revolutionary, faces this decision when he is forced to abandon his family in order to save his life and maintain the ruse that he is a Guard. Driven by forces larger than himself, Sander must now convince his superiors and the other Guards that he is one of their own. Not an easy task for someone with no Guard training or first-hand knowledge of the world that literally exists above his own. But, Sander may have found an ally as he leaps from the proverbial frying pan into the fire by the end of the second issue.

We’re back in Hawaii with our four clueless tourists - Mr. Postcard, Mr. Oblivious, Ms. Informed, and Mr. Aloha - who continue to insult, humiliate, and mildly terrorize other tourists and the local population. In the previous issue, their bumbling had inadvertently solved a major traffic problem. Now, let’s see what other trouble they can get into in their last week in paradise.

Imagine if the Roman Empire never fell. Then, imagine if an entire Roman Legion descended upon the pristine continent of “Nova Hesperia,” a place we would refer to as the Continental United States.  In this alternate history, the Romans were the first white men to set foot on the new world, and what they found was not exactly what they expected.

In the desolate, Steampunk world of Lantern city, there are three distinct classes: The Workers; the Guards; and The Greys.  The Workers and Guards serve to help the city survive within walls built long ago to protect the population from what is known as “The Desolation.” (The Greys are the upper class that we have yet to meet. ) The Workers, being the lowest class, suffer the most under the hands of the ruthless and faceless Guards. The story focuses on one such worker by the name of Sander. A loving husband and father, he is torn between keeping his head down to protect his family or aiding his brother-in-law in revolt.  But, whether it is a difficult decision to make is left to be seen as inaction means a slow death and joining the revolt could mean a quick one.

Taking a step back from the TV show and a four-issue mini-series, BOOM! Studios - with writer Mike Johnson and artist Matías Bergara - sends us down memory lane to see the world through the eyes of our heroes and villains before the world as they knew it changed forever.

What happens when four clueless tourists descend on the island of Oahu and their inadvertent impact on local government is the premise of this cute satirical look at Hawaii.  Written and illustrated by indie comic creator, Allen G. Carter, the comic takes a look at both a tourist and an insider’s perspective of tourism and modern Hawaiian culture.

Clay Woods is on the run from someone or something. Or, is he really trying to run away from himself? Driven by this nagging fear that if he doesn’t keep moving, something bad will happen, he spends his last dollar only to wind up in the “Big Easy,” otherwise known as New Orleans. One has to wonder if Clay has jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

The fourth and last installment of Sleepy Hollow from BOOM! starts off with a bang, as Abbie and Ichabod find themselves trapped in a hell of their own making. Jennie and the Captain are imprisoned as well, but Abbie has made a deal with The Hessians to rescue her friends and fellow witness. Now, they face off against their nemesis, Colin Van Bilj, for control of their very souls.

What do you do when you give the demon you summoned the choice of free will? And, what does free will really mean? These are the questions that emerge from the first five chapters of the Dark Horse comic, Veil, written by Greg Rucka and with art by Toni Fejzula.
