Hellbreak!

hellbreakcrop

My new comic book series HELLBREAK was announced a while back, but due to forces beyond our control, the book was delayed until 2015. That’s all right, because in March HELLBREAK will debut in a big way!

Not black ops. The blackest of ops. A group of elite soldiers has been recruited by the shadowy Kerberos Corporation for a series of special missions—breaking souls out of Hell and returning them to their bodies… and replacing the evil demons possessing their mortal shells here on Earth.

A gothic, action-packed vision of Hell in a new ongoing series that evokes Inception and Aliens by way of John Carpenter from the creative forces of writer Cullen Bunn, artist Brian Churilla, and colorist Dave Stewart!

First and foremost, the regular edition of HELLBREAK issue 1 will cost only $1! It’s an extra-sized introduction to the series. At that price, why wouldn’t you give it a try?

There will also be a few special edition variants for the series. Jenny Frison, Cliff Chiang, and Dave Johnson have all contributed special covers for the issue. If retailers order 50 copies of HELLBREAK #1, they unlock the ability to order the Frison variant at will. At a order of 100 copies, they unlock the ability to order the Chiang variant at will. At 150 copies, they can order the Johnson variant at will.

Pre-orders for HELLBREAK #1 start on December 15th! Issue #1 goes on sale on March 11th!

The Sixth Gun RPG

SavageWorldsComingAttractionsI’ve long said that the world of The Sixth Gun would make a great setting for a role-playing game. If you agree with me, then you should get your dice ready. Pinnacle Entertainment Group (who are responsible for Savage Worlds and Deadlands among many other great games) has announced the upcoming release of a Savage Worlds source book based on the comic book!

The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

From the press release:

The Sixth Gun series comes to RPGs! The First of the Six strikes with ungodly force. The Second spreads Perdition’s flames. The Third kills with a flesh-rotting disease. The Fourth calls up the spirits of those it has slain. The Fifth can heal the wielder from even a fatal wound. And the Sixth is the key to rewriting the world. Are you ready to saddle up and ride into the savage world of The Sixth Gun? Based on the Eisner and Harvey Award nominated comic series from Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, and OniPress. Watch for more details to come, as well as more accessories, including custom miniatures of the characters from the comics!

Three new books this week! I hope you’ll check them out!

THE REMAINS #3

The dead grow restless when Cole Jensen is near. Birdie senses the potential threat the hired man presents for her family, but her parents aren’t listening.

Here’s a preview!

MAGNETO #7

  • Magneto is on a one-man mission to safeguard the future of mutantkind by any means necessary. So far, he’s done so by eliminating human threats…
  • But what happens when it’s MUTANTS who pose a threat to their own species?
  • Will Magneto cross a line and raise his hand to his own kind? And if so, just how far will he go?

Here’s a preview!

Secrets of the Shadow’s past are revealed as he meets Houdini! The Shadow infiltrates sanctum of an esoteric society of murderous magicians who are hellbent on escaping the ultimate trap–death itself!
