GATESVILLE COMPANY (MAY052937)
THE GATESVILLE COMPANY is a supernatural drama series of self-contained issues that can be read in any order. Every issue is an excellent jumping on point for new readers.
GATESVILLE is a ghost town, where the souls of killers go to meet their last trial before they move on to their afterlife. The souls are from all over the world; in every era of history. Gatesville is their final chance to slay their dragons.
In “THE SWORDSMITH”, the premier issue of The Gatesville Company creators Marc Bryant, Patrick Mcevoy, and Mal Jones master weapons creator Kazuo Kojima commits seppuku, only to find himself in Gatesville. The enigmatic Ms. Brand instructs him to reclaim his masterpiece sword, stolen by the outlaw Combs, who is in Gatesville himself.
PARTING WAYS (MAY052941)
Peter Orbach wants to live. It’s unfortunate he didn’t realize this earlier; it isn’t going to do him much good now that he’s in Hell.
Peter isn’t the first person to believe he shouldn’t be damned, but he may be the first that’s objectively correct in the assessment. Somehow, his soulless body still lives…and from all appearances, it’s doing great without him…
Written by Andrew Foley (Jeremiah: The Last Empire), with art by Scott Mooney (Diaries of a Moon-Man) and Nick Craine (X-Statix), PARTING WAYS is one man’s journey down two separate paths.
MUTATION #1 (MAY052940)
If you could become anything you wanted to… what would you be? If you could do anything you wanted to… what would you do? Would you be a hero and enjoy the countless accolades? Would you be a villain and revel in destruction? Or would you just be.
Trent Tyson struggles to answer these questions everyday of his life as Mutation… protector of the fabled Silver City, where Heroes and Villains abound…
Mutation delivers non stop action, adventure, and fun!
Created and Written by George T. Singley (Wargod, Shocking Gun Tales, Headcase) with Artwork by Ethen Beavers (Justice League Unlimited, Noble Causes, Six, Shocking Gun Tales), Mutation morphs its way to you monthly by Chimaera Studios and Speakeasy Comics.
