Hopeless Maine #1
(2.99)

(W) Tom and Nimue Brown
(A) Tom Brown

Part one! Trapped on an island off the coast of Maine, the people of Hopeless find life a little darker and more dangerous with every day that passes. The number of orphans rises continually, but who can say what happens to their parents? Plenty of the bodies are never found. This is not the stuff of happy, careless childhoods, it is instead fertile ground for personal demons. In Hopeless, the demons are not always abstract concepts. Some of them have very real teeth, and very real horns. The island has been isolated for a very long time. Partly because of being small and forgotten, partly because the rocks and currents do not encourage visitors, Hopeless is surrounded by fog and overrun with nightmarish creatures, from small things with tentacles to demons and vampires. It’s a peculiar place. Here, almost anything can happen, from the weird and unsettling to the darkly funny. With a cast of freaks, nutters and the odd power crazed psychopath, life in Hopeless is seldom dull. Hopeless is also about who you choose to be. The tale is a protest against apathy, and against the small evils that everyone takes for granted. The worst monsters frequently aren’t the ones with the obvious teeth who are merely dangerous by nature, but the apparently ordinary people who choose to do hideous things.

Judge Bao #1
(2.99)

(W) Patrick Marty
(A) Chongrui Nie

Where Judge Bao is told the story of a young Chao Dong by his dying mother and receives the complaints of the population from the province’s capital city. Judge Bao learns that the prison is full of innocent people and that the city and justice are administered in a biased way.

(A) Alex Eckman-Lawn

In the wake of definitive proof that something terrible is happening in Park Falls, Daniel begins to investigate the body that was recovered while Derrick seeks out the patients listed in the file found at Cline Pharmaceutical.
