Tangent/The Joker #1

“What a joke, huh?”

Meet the Joker — an acrobatic anarchist with a wacky sense of humor who humiliates cops and robbers alike! But, there’s more to this Mirthful Maiden of Mayhem than meets the eye as revealed in “Laugh ‘Till It Hurts.” It’s a comedic caper and action adventure that will leave you smiling courtesy of fan favorites Karl Kesel, Matt Haley and Tom Simmons!

Spacetime's Finest #1 Spacetime's Finest #3

Dean Trippe imagines a pair of crossovers between the Doctor and the World’s Finest Heroes! I’ve seen three episodes of “Doctor Who” in my life. While I might lose Geek Cred points for this, it is fair to say I am not a Whovian. Still, I’d read these. Then I’d read ‘em again!

Check out Trippe’s Tumblr for more great art and other finds!

Tangent/Sea Devils #1

“We were barely more than monsters then — but monsters of their making!”

The atomic destruction of Florida and Cuba had ramifications far beyond land. But life isn’t better down where it’s wetter as the mutated creatures known as the Sea Devils have endured generations of fear and hatred from the surface-dwellers. But a far greater danger forces lifeforms on both sides of the wate to put aside their differences and overcome the racism and prejudice in “Devils and the Deep.” And it’s all brought to you by Kurt Busiek, Vince Giarrano and Tom Palmer!
