New Series/#1’s
Disney Hercules #1 – Dynamites new line of Disney comics continues to expand.

Land Left Behind #1 – Blood Moon Comics – Days into an expedition, the caravan of knights of the “charging steer” company find themselves transported into a strange, unknown land. Stranded and alone, they must fight for survival against prehistoric beasts and the land itself as they learn that they are not the top of the food chain anymore.

Silicon Bandits #1 – Magma Comix – In a near future where automation has caused mass unemployment, programmers Kenji and Aurora’s careers seemed safe. But when they are suddenly fired, the couple hatches a desperate plan: assemble the perfect bank-heist crew out of androids they programmed. The ensuing crime spree goes perfectly… until betrayal and sentience emerge in equally devastating turns!

When The Blood Has Dried #1 – Years ago, a stranger came to Carraig an Bhun, a little town on the edge of the Southern Territories. The locals eventually came to see this “blow-in,” Meabh of Cklonia, as one of their own. Now, Meabh has taken over as proprietor of The Lough Inn, finding a semblance of peace after a lifetime of adventuring…however, the proposed opening of a branch of the Adventurers’ Guild risks dragging her past into the present. What would the townsfolk do if they discovered their beloved barkeep was once part of a ruthless band of rogue sell-swords masquerading as noble heroes? It’s a tragic tale of loss and redemption that asks what’s left behind long after the bodies are buried and When the Blood Has Dried.
