October 23,  2014 – Los Angeles, CA – Ever wonder what it’s like to gaze into infinity and have an all-knowing understanding of the universe, so much so that it paralyzes you entirely? Your curiosity will be sated this November with Bravest Warriors: Paralyzed Horse Giant, a 48-page special containing the various adventures of one of the most mysterious characters in the Bravest Warriors, Beth’s Paralyzed Horse. Dive into the mind of a horse with far-reaching knowledge of the future with a cast of talented creators including James Tynion IV (The Woods, Batman: Eternal), Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade), Tessa Stone (Regular Show: Hydration), Erica Henderson (Unbeatable Squirrel Girl), Pranas Naujokaitis (Adventure Time), Kat Leyh (Bravest Warriors), and Meredith McClaren (Adventure Time: Pixel Princesses).

 

Bravest Warriors is known for having a cast of strange characters, but the Paralyzed Horse is in a league of his own,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “In the last two seasons alone, he’s gone from a pet horse that just kind of laid there to a psychic warrior defending the Bravest Warriors from an Aeon Worm. That’s pretty incredible for a horse that can’t move! Now we get to explore his other adventures with some of the comic industry’s top talent, and the result is as hilarious as it is heartwarming.”

 

He might be paralyzed by the vast knowledge of time and space, but Beth’s pet horse won’t let that stop him from protecting her and the rest of the Bravest Warriors! Throughout the Bravest Warriors’ young lives the Paralyzed Horse has always been there to lend a helping…hoof, whether it’s stopping evil from messing up a putt-putt date or saving their very lives. Bravest Warriors was created by Pendleton Ward.

 

Bravest Warriors: Paralyzed Horse Giantarrives in comic shops on November 19th with a cover price of $4.99 under Diamond order code SEP141190. The Final Order Cutoff Date for retailers is October 27th. The main cover is illustrated by Tessa Stone, with an incentive cover by Jonathan Brandon Sawyer (Critical Hit).

Sneak Peek: Lenore #11 – The Cult Classic From The Twisted Mind of Roman Dirge!
from Bill, October 27th, 2014 8:54 pm, comic book

LENORE # 11
STORY BY: 
Roman Dirge

ART BY: Roman Dirge

COVER BY: Roman Dirge

PUBLISHER: Titan Comics

PAGECOUNT: 36pp

COVER PRICE: $3.99

RELEASE DATE: Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Someone’s going to die…

After four issues it’s time for a death in the family.

And we’re not talking about a case of mild death – you know, when a character comes back after a year or so, no longer dead. We’re talking dead-dead. Dead as a doornail dead, the pushing up daisies kind of dead. And Roman swears blind it’s sticking, “no one’s curing this dose of the deads,” said he, if we’d asked him and he’d said that in response.

But who will it be..?

Will it be Lenore, the titular star of the comic, or maybe Ragamuffin, her stalwart and loyal companion? Perhaps Death will come a knocking on the door of Pooty, the trident armed, bucket-headed demon from Heck, or maybe it’ll be the sinister, eons-old serial killer, Mr. Taxidermy – the self appointed protector of Lenore and children everywhere?

Or perhaps it’s that new, good-looking crewmember dressed in the red shirt.

There’s only one way to find out…

Lenore #11 hits comic stores on October 29, 2014

SYNOPSIS

PICKED OFF ONE BY ONE BY AN ENTITY FROM THE STARS!

Alice Obiefune always wanted to see a space station – one of those proper ones, like on the telly, with impressive bulkheads, sweeping corridors and stunning views of eternity. Maybe with an exotic matter wormhole nearby, if it’s not too much trouble. Aliens optional, but a bonus as long as they’re friendly.

That’s just one of the reasons Alice and the Doctor have come to a remote space research facility.

The views are breathtaking… but so is the formless creature creeping through the station, stealing voices and inflicting comas on those research scientists unlucky enough to be caught.

Tracking the temporal trail of the slippery SERVEYOUinc corporation, has the Doctor found more than he bargained for? And will this entity from between the stars be the death of them all?

Writer Al Ewing (Loki: Agent of Asgard) and artist Boo Cook (2000AD, Elephantmen) ramp up the claustrophobia for a terrifying space adventure!
