Titan Comics hurls its fans into the life of Frank Braffort as he and those in his French military unit fight for their lives. Writer Serge Lehman, winner of the Prix Rosny-Aine for Best Novel (F.A.U.S.T.) and Best Short Fiction (Dans I’abime and Origami), has his work translated to English for Titan Comics. The three-time winner of the annual French science fiction award presents an intriguing tale seemingly simple at first glance of the first few pages, and then quickly makes the reader realize that Masked is futuristic and filled with science fiction goodness.

Have you ever wanted to see Captain Kirk dressed in red permanently? Would he be able to escape the “curse of the red shirt?” Fans of Star Trek, particularly The Original Series, will have an opportunity to indulge their diabolical urges and recreate what might’ve been on the cult television series.

The wonderfully unique premise of Reborn, crafted by Mark Millar, entertains its fans with Issue #2 – a great follow-up to the “captivating” first issue that “pulls at a reader’s soul.”  Please feel encouraged to check out the Fanbase Press review of Reborn #1 highlighting “one of the most spectacular pages ever constructed.”

The Troop: Volume 1 generates more than a simple plot through a five-issue run. Writer Noel Clarke crafts misfit heroes who find themselves surrounded by violence, sex, drugs, and the overwhelming desire to survive – particularly when it involves self-defense, smashing a racist’s face in, or pure and simple revenge. These loners are not only used to being outcasts; it’s the normalcy they seek until they find each other. Clarke provides a diverse group of characters and isn’t afraid to involve vulgar language to emphasize their opinions on important matters, like staying alive.

A complex storyline mixed with ancient beings, thrilling sequences, and characters driving themselves to uphold some semblance of a moral code provide a legacy created by Bruce Zick. The Zone Continuum: Legacy was first introduced in 1992, and Dark Horse Comics brings together the four-part series in one collection for the first time.

The longstanding story of Hideyuki Kikuchi’s Vampire Hunter D enters beautifully into the comic book world. The anime-like illustrations by Michael Broussard make the reader feel like you’re watching an animated television series, which happens to be currently in development. The first of “over 30 novels based on the titular character” began its popular run in 1983 and has since “sold more than 17 million copies and has been translated into more than a dozen languages.”

What do they say about women? You don’t talk down to them, you don’t disrespect them, you don’t hit them, and you absolutely do not ever attempt to swindle them. And when a woman says, “I want my water…and my bourbon,” you do not hesitate.

What would you and your high school classmates do if you, and your school building, were suddenly transported to an unknown world? What would you do if you were surrounded by a wilderness filled with terrifyingly grotesque creatures that want to devour your flesh?

Super Terre.r is an out-of-this-world adventure that’s perfectly described by its cover page. Artist Bob Eggleton creates an extraterrestrial vision with several explorers standing in the midst of an alien planet; it’s made apparent by multiple moons or planets in the sea blue sky. The cover also highlights the abundance of foliage, as green moss covers every inch of tall towers, which are yet to be determined if they’re man-made or not.

The world has changed. The sun devastates the world instead of nourishes it. In a flash of sunlight, life can be extinguished, and the remnants are not a pretty sight.
