Curb Stomp #1 (of 4)
Author: Ryan Ferrier
Artist: Devaki Neogi
WHY WE LOVE IT: Punk rock isn’t dead…yet. Turf wars, breaking rules, crushing violence, and Black Flag—these are a few of our favorite things, and we can’t wait for Curb Stomp to straight-up knock our teeth out (in a good way).
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Writer Ryan Ferrier (D4VE) is a creator on the rise, and newcomer Devaki Neogi’s art will hook you with its aggressiveness but keep you coming back with its heart. Curb Stomp is an unflinching, visceral look at the lengths one woman will go to protect her friends, her family, and her home—perfect for fans of Rat Queens and the seminal ‘70s cult-favorite film The Warriors.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Three gangs. Five girls. No way out. Machete Betty leads a small gang of women under the self-appointed task of protecting their home of Old Beach, one of three boroughs surrounding a rich metropolitan city. When Betty takes the life of a rival gang member in an act of self-defense, she sets off a chain reaction of retaliation, gang warfare, and unlikely allies. It’s up to the The Fever—Machete Betty, Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain, and Violet Volt—to defend their turf at all costs.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes #4 (of 6)
Author: Michael Moreci
Artist: Dan McDaid
Pope’s past comes to light as his ascension from commanded to commander stirs trouble among the apes. With no sign of Pope’s return, Koba must do away with their kinship for the honor of Caesar. Alexander has been taken. Rita is dying as the simian flu takes more of her every day. The hardest days of Malcolm’s life are upon him and there is nothing he can do that will make things right. Nothing to do but try.
Evil Empire #11
Author: Max Bemis
Artist: Victor Santos
Reese and her carefully amassed crew is finally making a dent in the Evil Empire. With Reese’s resistance appealing to people to stand strong behind their beliefs, it’s a matter of how many people fall on each side of the morality line. What do you stand for?
Clive Barker’s Nightbreed #10
Author: Marc Andreyko
Artists: Emmanuel Xerx Javier, Devmalya Pramanik
As Midian crumbles, the Nightbreed are forced to the surface world once more to face all of mankind’s hate and zealot rage. After betraying his people for the woman he loves, Boone now finds a new fire burning within him. The Chosen One will finally have to make the choice to live up to his title.
The Returning TP
Author: Jason Starr
Artist: Andrea Mutti
WHY WE LOVE IT: We can’t get enough innovative mash-ups of some of our favorite genres: Fantasy, Horror, and Mystery. Plus, we’re fascinated with the science of Near-Death Experiences (NDE)!
WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT: Award-winning novelist Jason Starr (Wolverine Max, The Chill) and artist Andrea Mutti (Conan, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) deliver a gripping but deeply human drama set in an uncertain world.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s the near future, and some people who have had Near-Death Experiences have come back “changed.” They exhibit extreme behavioral changes, becoming increasingly paranoid and violent, and no one knows why. People who have had NDE’s fall immediately under suspicion, and in some cases, are murdered by justice-seeking vigilantes. It is in this world where Beth, a quiet high school student with a bright future, will learn just how quickly friends and family will turn on her when she has the bad luck of surviving the worst night of her life… Collects the complete miniseries, issues #1-4.

BOOM! Box Titles
Imprint: BOOM! Box
Author: Thomas Siddell
Artist: Ian McGinty
Munchkin—the game where you do whatever it takes to win, whether it’s backstabbing your own mum or befriending your worst enemy—is now a comic, and the twists and turns are just as unpredictable as the game. Spyke and Flower are taking on the Wight Brothers’ dungeon in the first part of “Might Makes Wight,” and we take a moment to learn something new in “The Ecology of the Floating Nose” in a backup story written by Jim Zub (Wayward) and drawn by Rian Sygh (BOOM! Box 2014 Mix Tape). All first printings come with an exclusive game card!
