WITCH HAMMER from Aftershock Comics!

Today’s big announcement! From the official press release–

AfterShock Comics has announced Witch Hammer, a new original graphic novel from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Dalibor Talajic, the first in a new line of OGNs from the publisher.

Witch Hammer tells the story of two agents drawn into a murder mystery when someone starts killing witches. It will consist of 64 pages.

Witch Hammer is a different kind of horror story,” said Bunn. “In this original graphic album, we are thrown headlong into a dark and bloody mystery. Someone is hunting people down, murdering them in cold blood. The connection between the victims–they are all practitioners of witchcraft.  The killer is a terrifying figure–armed to the teeth and wearing a ghastly goat mask–and he is made all the more frightening and more dangerous by one simple fact. He believes in what he is doing. Emboldened by the awful power of conviction, he is on a one-man crusade. He is pursued by a group of federal investigators hellbent on stopping his killing spree. These investigators, though, are faced with a dreadful conundrum of their own. What if the victims actually are in league with demonic forces?”

“This is a bloody, violent, frightening thriller, and I can’t wait to hear what readers think about it,” he continued. “On the surface, the story is fairly straightforward–a murderer is at work and must be stopped–but I think this book will challenge readers. Who are the heroes? The villains? The victims? The answers will change as the story progresses.”

Here’s the full solicitation for the OGN, available November 28:

Final order cutoff for ASGARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1

FINAL ORDER CUTOFFS

unnamedMonday is the Final order cutoff for ASGARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1.

Spinning out of the events of INFINITY WARS comes an epic space opera from DEADPOOL veterans Cullen Bunn and Matteo Lolli!

Angela, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor. The hotheaded Valkyrie – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs. Skurge the Executioner, freshly returned from Hel. Throg, the mightiest frog of thunder. Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero Thunderstrike. And the Destroyer, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown. The events of INFINITY WARS set NEBULA off on a quest to rule the galaxy – wielding an Asgardian weapon even Thor would fear – and it’s up to this team of gods, assassins, frogs and heroes to stop her. Rated T+ In Shops: Sep 05, 2018

 

unnamed-1This is an exciting adventure comic, the story of Asgardian heroes traveling the cosmos. It’s a crazy cast of misfits! Many of your favorite cosmic characters will also be appearing in the series, and the name of the game will be fun and excitement. I know how tough it is to launch a new comic book these days, and I’d love to be able to tell a good, long story with this book. Pre-orders for books like this are vital! Comic book retailers will use pre-orders to gauge interest in the book and make estimates of what to stock in the shelves. So, please call your local comic book shop and ask them to pre-order the book and add the series to your pull-and-hold list!

The order code is JUL180980
