What is up Wednesday Warriors? Not a big week this week. Here is what is on tap:

New Series/#1’s
Hate Revisited #1 – Peter Bagge returns to the series that defined a generation with this all-new, four-issue monthly miniseries!

Plastic Death & Dolls #1 – Everyone’s favorite serial killer has returned! Learn how Edwyn came to his first kill at 10 years old and how that set him on a blood-soaked path of decapitations, sporks, and dolls on his way to finding the one true love of his life… a sex doll named Virginia.

Remote Space #1 – The year is 2450. Earth is dying. The human species has gone down two different evolutionary paths. One used cybernetic augmentation to adapt to space travel. The humans left behind used genetic manipulation to adapt to earth’s worsening climate. For earth to survive, civilizations need to collide.

Rifters #1 – Please, Saran-Wrap your ass, because you’re about to projectile-shit yourself right into the wild world of Rifters, where Time Cop collides with Law & Order, filtered through the Stupid McSmartsalot-Einstein lens of Mr. Show. Fenton and Geller are a couple of part-time Wisenheimers, full-time vice time-cops who suck at rule-following but excel at busting time-travel crimes. Unfortunately, their daily grind involves tedious police work-like chasing down douchebag influencers hellbent on live-streaming illegal transtemporal trips to 1920s Chicago to steal primo bootleg hooch. However, in a twist of fate, our heroes find themselves thrust into the heart of an inter-time serial homicide mystery, but not before things change, forcing our pair into the crosshairs of potentially lethal consequences. The stakes are high, time is of the essence, and Fenton and Geller are about to discover that playing with the time-stream isn’t all flappers and jazz hands. Get ready for a high-octane, double-illegal adventure where the only sure thing is that Rifters is rewriting the rulebook on time-travel tales!
