Void Rivals, Vol. 1

Kirkman (Firepower) and illustrators De Felici (Oblivion Song Compendium) and Lopes craft a fantastic space opera centered on a fascinatingly complex pair of protagonists.

Fire Power. Vol. 1: Prelude

Kirkman (Oblivion Song. Vol. 3) and Samnee (Black Widow: The Complete Collection) have created a fun homage to classic martial arts films and comic books, and while this volume serves as a prelude to an upcoming monthly series, it includes more than enough action and intrigue to satisfy on its own.

The Walking Dead: Here's Negan!

While it doesn't contain many of the main characters fans know and love, this stand-alone volume does offer the oddly compelling origin story of the most hated man of any zombie apocalypse.


This initial volume is mostly concerned with setting the stage for the larger tale, but horror fans aware of Kirkman's pedigree should eat it up nonetheless.

Outcast. Vol. 1: Darkness Surrounds Him

Kirkman, creator of "The Walking Dead" series, has launched another grim and civilization-menacing serial. The artwork of Azaceta is bold and course, with sophisticated and dramatic coloring. The overall effect is atmospherically creepy and yearns to be read. The television series is already under way.

What's Happening

The numerous characters are realistically distinct from one another, and Kirkman adroitly sprinkles humor throughout a mostly serious story line. The cartoony artwork keeps the story from seeming too heavy, while colorist John Rauch imparts visual depth through a pastel palette that is reminiscent of art nouveau. Longtime series fans will not be disappointed here, but the numerous backstories will make it confusing for new readers. Recommended only with the rest of the series.
