BOOM! Studios Previews for 09-30-15

The Empty Man TP
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Vanesa R. Del Rey

What’s to Love: There’s nothing scarier than horror that hits home—a tale of terror only one or two steps removed from our reality. The Empty Man is a dystopic version of the world we know, where a terrifying disease has taken on almost deific connotations. Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Magneto) and Vanesa R. Del Rey (Hit) are two of the most exciting talents in the industry, and perfectly in sync on this haunting new crime procedural.

What It Is: It’s been one year since the first reported case of the Empty Man disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As murder cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure. Collects the complete miniseries, issues #1-6.

 

RoboCop: Dead or Alive Vol. 1 TP
Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Carlos Magno

What’s to Love: If you’re like us, the classic 1987 film holds a special place in your fan heart. This collection is the hard-bitten world of RoboCop we all grew up on! If you’ve ever wondered what happens to RoboCop and his partner, Anne Lewis, after the first film, wonder no more.

What It Is: Months after the events of the original classic film, John Killian, a criminal from Old Detroit’s mysterious past, returns to a city ablaze. As RoboCop, Anne Lewis, and the police department wage war on anarchic streets, tension between the people and “their protectors” is at an all-time high. When the mayor launches an initiative to remove the people’s right to bear arms, Killian will lead the citizens in an uprising that tears down the very foundation of OCP. Collects issues #1-4.

 

Clive Barker’s Next Testament Vol. 3 TP
Writers: Clive Barker & Mark Miller
Artist: Haemi Jang

In the final chapter of the Harvey Award-nominated epic, Tristan and Elspeth desperately race to a library in Providence, Rhode Island, where their only hope of defeating Wick awaits. Meanwhile, Wick finds a new apprentice and Julian’s final fate is revealed. Collects issues #9-12.
