Dang, huge week of Skybound books! First, we have the debut issue of HARDCORE: RELOADED, which takes the premise from the original HARDCORE and somehow ramps it up even more. Then we have the next issue of HEART ATTACK, where more of this really great story and world is revealed. We have the final issue of OUTPOST ZERO, a comic that really built up emotionally over time while dealing with a really fun mystery backbone. Great ending from Sean, Alexandre, and crew. And finally, we have the trade paperback of OUTER DARKNESS Volume 2. If you have a Trek fan you’re shopping for, or a supernatural/demon/ghost/possession fan—or even better a combo of the two—Volumes 1 and 2 of this book are a sure-fire Christmas gift.
Scroll down for previews! See you at the comic shop!
