COMICS HORIZON (SEPT SOLICITS)
This will hopefully be a monthly piece where we’ve taken a look at the solicits and share what we’re excited about! This month (July) sees the solicits for books hitting the shelves in SEPTEMBER! Now, this isn’t the FULL list of stuff that intrigues us but these are books that we WILL be adding to the pull list, continuing, and/or picking up.
Sweet Heart VOL 1 (Action Lab)
Horror done right. Excellent world building and a proper eerie presentation. Monsters are real and people know it. A truly unique plot in a genre where people try too hard to make something old, new again.Horror done right.

Lonely Receiver #1 (Aftershock) A horror take on the break up story. Toss in the sci-fi element and there’s a recipe for what could be an absolutely terrifying take on the break up. Social commentary as well as half of the couple is AI (analogues to our phones).
