Machine Man is back! Zombies of the multiverse, watch your rotting backs!

First up: in the Alterniverse known as ‘The Territory,’ the Old West never died. But when the greatest gunslingers of Marveldom — Two-Gun Kid, Phantom Rider, Kid Colt, and many others — rise from their graves in Boot Hill, the stage is set for a High Noon showdown with flesh-eating outlaws the likes of which you’ve never seen!

Spider-Man: Fever #1 preview

Spiderman comic

One of comics’ most innovative and original voices, Brendan McCarthy, brings Spider-Man: Fever — a truly unique and surreal story evoking the classic Silver-Age psychedelia of Steve Ditko’s Dr Strange. In Fever, Spider-Man is abducted by a depraved tribe of spider-demons to a bizarre dimension, where he is to be eaten alive. Dr. Strange goes on a perilous occult quest to rescue his friend — and tangles with some very peculiar characters along the way…

Terminator interview with Andy MacDonald

Terminator comic

The year is 2029. It’s the year that John Connor, leader of the Resistance, sends Kyle Reese to 1984 to save Sarah Connor from a T-800 with a grudge.

But before all of that happened, Kyle Reese was just another man fighting to survive in a world overrun by a technology that had taken on a life of its own and annihilated civilization.

Who was Kyle before he met John Connor and was thrust through time to face off with a T-800 and fall for a waitress with a destiny? And who were his comrades in arms?

We caught up with artist, Andy MacDonald, to talk about Terminator.

The Littlest Zombie #1 review

Littlest Zombie

In the madness of the Zombie Apocalypse, amid the throngs of living dead and terrified victims, the littlest zombie roams. He’s just an inquisitive chap filled with curiosity about the world on fire around him. Pushed around by his fellow undead (who always get to the brains first), and positively frowned upon by the remaining living citizens, the poor little guy just wants a friend. And maybe something to chew on. Like your face.
