House of Whispers. Vol. 1: The Power Divided

A new story existing in Gaiman’s Sandman Universe, this ongoing series, cowritten by Nalo Hopkinson (Midnight Robber) and Dan Watters (24 Panels; Limbo), collects the first story line in a delightfully dark magical adventure that credibly utilizes the wonderful Americana of mythic New Orleans as the enchanted setting.

The Empty Man: Recurrence

Veteran scribe Bunn (Harrow County), with artist Hervás (Lucas Stand) and colorist Guardia, brings dense plotting and chilling body-horror imagery in this gripping first installment of an ongoing series that metaphorically uses social media as a strange virus metastasizing terror.

A carefully paced modern take on traditional tales of phantoms and monsters, with some nifty, reality-rending twists and unusual filmmaking sleight of hand, the film delivers scares and dramatic storytelling equally. [See Trailers, LJ 8/18.]

The Wrath of Fantômashttps://www.libraryjournal.com/cms/?1&path=/content/documents/Jlibrary/review/2019/02/the-wrath-of-fantomas#

Adapting one of French pulp literature's most lurid diabolical masterminds, debut comics creators Olivier Bocquet and Rocheleau render a Fantômas who spectacularly breaks the shackles of the printed word developed by Souvestre and writing partner Marcel Allain to invade the graphic medium. A midnight-hewn thrill ride whose sophisticated art perfectly captures the electrifying colors and terrifying aftermath of deeds most foul.

The Fearsome Doctor Fang

This rip-snorting, two-fisted pulp adventure is the first of four titles in TKO's debut lineup. Here, filmmaker and TKO publisher/cofounder Chun (7 Deadly Sins), along with Weiss (The Mentalist) and artists McDaid (Firefly) and Miwa (Shaft) take the tarnished tropes of "yellow peril" fiction and flip it, transforming Fang into a Tony Stark-esque superinventor with a heart of gold. With any luck, this will be the first of many globe-trotting, stereotype-crushing adventures.
