SERIES PREMIERE

From JONATHAN LUNA (ALEX + ADA, GIRLS, THE SWORD) and LAUREN KEELY, in her writing debut, comes an all-new ongoing series!

This sci-fi thriller for mature readers imagines a not-so-distant future-a world of norms and syms, divided by fear. Syms, a small percentage of the population with telekinetic abilities, form gangs to survive. But division only breeds more division, and Mer and Nuon experience this firsthand as they become entangled in the often dramatic, sometimes violent, but always complex social landscape of sym gang rivalries in Anchorage, Alaska.

MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES TP (MR)

(W) Ed Brubaker (A/CA) Sean Phillips

NOW IN SOFTCOVER!

One of Newsweek’s Best Comic Books of 2018! Thrillist’s Best Comics & Graphic Novels of 2018!

ED BRUBAKER and SEAN PHILLIPS — the bestselling creators of CRIMINAL, KILL OR BE KILLED, THE FADE OUT, and FATALE — present their first original graphic novel in paperback for the very first time!

Teenage Ellie has always romanticized drug addicts, those tragic artistic souls drawn to needles and pills, ever since the death of her junkie mother ten years ago. But when Ellie lands in an upscale rehab clinic where nothing is as it appears to be, she’ll find another-more dangerous-romance, and discover how easily drugs and murder go hand-in-hand.

MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES is a seductive coming-of-age story, a pop and drug culture-fueled tale of a young girl seeking darkness… and what she finds there.

“Readers of postmodern pulp will enjoy this intense story and unapologetically cunning character.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Provides plenty of truly twisted twists and wraps up with a pulpy punch of an ending that’s satisfying-and heartbreaking… a fine addition to a staggering body of work.” –Library Journal (starred review)

“Like most CRIMINAL stories, there’s a darkness, along with twists that cut to the core. Phillips’ art utilizes a limited color palette that makes you feel the ideas that run through each scene, each of the narrator’s thoughts and memories.” –LAist

SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN TP LO THIS MONSTER

(W) Stan Lee (A) Larry Lieber (A/CA) John Romita

Spider-Man swings into a brand-new magazine-sized format – and the results are spectacular! The year is 1968. With John Romita Sr. channeling film noir in his visuals and Stan Lee offering longer stories for a more mature readership, these were Spidey tales like nothing that had come before! In the first issue, told in glorious halftone black and white, things get political as Richard Raleigh bids to be the next mayor of New York – but will his campaign be derailed by a monster running amok in the Big Apple? Then, Lee and Romita go fittingly full-color for the Green Goblin’s high-flying return – and deliver a feature-length showdown between Spidey and his archnemesis! Plus: Revisit the origin of Spider-Man – as retold by Stan and his brother, Larry Lieber! Collecting SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN (1968) #1-2. All Ages.
