Looking for something new to read? Check out these great new selections out this week:

Dept. H #1 (Dark Horse) $3.99
Writer/Artist: Matt Kindt

Synopsis: Mia is a special investigator hired to uncover possible sabotage taking place at a deep-sea research station. What she finds is a mind-blowing crime scene filled with suspects with terrible secrets, strange deep-sea creatures, and an impending flood!

Why We Are Excited: Fresh off wrapping up his last creator owned book, Mind Mgmt, we are excited to see what other stories Kindt has in store for us. This series promises an exciting undersea sci-fi mystery. Those that have gotten it in advance have been signing it's praises. Now it's time for us to see what the big mystery is all about in this first issue!




Joyride #1 (of 4) (Boom! Studios) $3.99
Writer: Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly; Artist: Marcus To

Synopsis: In the future, Earth sucks. The stars have been blocked out for so long that people have forgotten there was anything else besides the dumb World Government Alliance watching over them, training children to join the militarized Allied Youth and eliminating all resistance with a giant ray gun. Uma Akkolyte is a girl who shoots first and leaps before she looks, and when she gets a strange message from outside the barricades of SafeSky, she jacks a spaceship and punches through the stratosphere with an unlikely crew of teens who are totally not ready for what they're about to find.

Why We Are Excited: We like a little punk-rock with our futuristic sci-fi, so what's more punk then youths in revolt! From the same team that brought us Hacktivist comes a new look at a future world gone wrong.

Divinity II #1 (of 4) (Valiant Comics) $3.99
Writer: Matt Kindt; Artist: Trevor Hairsine; Cover Artist: Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic

Synopsis: During the Cold War, the Soviet Union green lit a dangerously advanced mission. They sent three cosmonauts farther than anyone has gone before or since. While out there something changed them. Long thought lost, Abram Adams was the first to return. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will. Now, Miska, the female co-pilot of the group, has also returned to Earth...but, unlike Abram she still believes in the Communist ideal. And, unlike Abram, she intends to play a very real role in the return of Soviet glory. Earth is about to meet a new god. And she's a Communist. How long can it be before the nations of Earth bend before DIVINITY?

Why We Are Excited: Did you read that synopsis? It's almost like taking the best parts of Superman II movie with Superman: Red Son, mixed with a little Fantastic Four! Wait...is that 2 Matt Kindt books in our Top 3 this week?? I feel a man-crush coming!
