Rank #1: DIE Vol. 1 with Kieron Gillen

Podcast cover
Read more

Writer Kieron Gillen walks you through Vol. 1 (TPB) of his "pitch-black fantasy" DIE.

THE WICKED + THE DIVINE writer KIERON GILLEN teams up with artist supernova STEPHANIE HANS (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE 1831, Journey Into Mystery) for her first ongoing comic! DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron's in a rush, he describes it as "Goth Jumanji." That only captures a sliver of what you'll find in oversized debut issue—where fantasy gets all too real.

DIE Vol. 1 available for purchase now:

Writer Danny Lore walks us through Queen of Bad Dreams.

When a dream entity known as a figment emerges from a dreamer’s mind, it’s Daher’s job as an IJ to track them down and make the call: reinsert the figment, or grant them agency in our world. After an especially powerful figment escapes the dreams of an even more powerful politician’s son, Daher is pulled headlong into an investigation that traces all the way back to the incident that sent dreams, even nightmares, spilling into our reality.https://www.comixology.com/Queen-of-Bad-Dreams-1/digital-comic/769494?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC90b3BSZXN1bHRzU2xpZGVy
