(Cover C) Amancay Nahuelpan
$3.99
36 pages

Synopsis:
What if the children of the .0001% reject their family legacies of global brutality and tear down the billionaire patriarchy?

The new ongoing series BILLIONAIRE KILLERS returns to the provocative world of YOUNG TERRORISTS for a standalone story about corruption, conspiracy, and what happens when the next generation vows to burn it all down.

We live in an age where the CEO of ExxonMobil can be America's Secretary Of State. A hedge fund manager worth $300 million is the Secretary Of The Treasury. A lawyer who sued the EPA 14 times is head of the EPA.

In BILLIONAIRE KILLERS, the children of elites discover their fathers are not just titans of finance and politics, but grand masters of international crime empires spanning corrupt governments, arms manufacturers, international banks, and even terrorist groups.

From writer Matteo Pizzolo [CALEXIT, YOUNG TERRORISTS] and your new favorite artist Soo Lee [FANTOMAH] comes a family saga about an elder generation that went to extreme lengths for power, and the younger generation forced to look at the parents they love and reject the bloodied legacy handed down to them.

It's a world where the President stops even bothering to hide the fact that America is ruled by corporations; a world where the next generation declares: enough.

BREATHLESS #1

(A/Covers) Renzo Rodriguez
$3.99
36 pages
Full Color
Mature

Synopsis:
It's Buffy the Vampire Slayer if the villains were big pharma.

Scout Turner works as a cryptozoologist, examining and cataloguing supernatural creatures for scientific purposes. When she discovers the cure for asthma in the venom of a new breed of monster, she quickly finds herself on the run from Kenilworth Pharmaceuticals and the monsters that they've hired to kill her. With no one by her side but her clueless assistant, a morally ambiguous succubus, and her geriatric dog, Scout goes on the run... but in a world controlled by money and drugs, can she escape the reaching claws of a medical monopoly?

From Pat Shand (Destiny NY, Guardians of the Galaxy) and Renzo Rodriguez (Hellchild) comes this healthcare horror story about the monsters creeping in the dark... human or otherwise.

$13.99
224 pages
Full Color
Mature

Synopsis:
From the creators of CALEXIT, Young Terrorists is the twisted grimoire of political destruction that Justin Partridge at Newsarama called "incendiary, super-crazy, and razor-sharp... exactly the kind of pissed-off spectacle we deserve right now."

A young heiress discovers her father is part of a tyrannical new world order. She vows to burn his whole empire down.

"Young Terrorists continues the legacy of DMZ and THE INVISIBLES," according to Amy Giardiniere at Comic Book Resources. "The sci-fi thriller captures the true rage, injustice and emotions behind a rebellion on every panel and provides a brutal and sometimes violent social commentary on the current state of affairs... the series fearlessly attacks politics in a completely savage way."

Collects Part 1 and Part 2 plus the FCBD Special.

Amid the increased threat outside the walls and the unrest within, Daisy has to say goodbye to Heather, whose latest run will take her through the worst of the dangers that the wilds have to offer.

From writer Vita Ayala (Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, Wonder Woman Annual) and Emily Pearson (Cult Classic) with colors by Marissa Louise (Spell On Wheels) and covers by Phillip Sevy (Tomb Raider) and Natasha Alterici (Heathen), comes the second chapter in this bold tale of surviving in bleak times.
