The co-creator of POWERS and MICE TEMPLAR, MICHAEL AVON OEMING, brings you magic, monsters and GODS.

Meet Paul, he's an everyday kind of guy. He’s kinda tall, kinda strong and kinda not mortal at all. Paul is actually Apollo (no, really) in hiding… from his family… the ancient Greek gods. Paul's father (you know, Zeus) would rather see Paul dead than living as a mortal… So, for Paul, being a god is complex... and dangerous...

FORGETLESS #1 (of 5)
story NICK SPENCER
art & cover W. SCOTT FORBES
DECEMBER 9
32 PAGES / FC
$3.50

 

The Forgetless nightclub is the biggest party in New York, and now it’s ending. But Sonia and Sara, struggling models turned professional killers, want to make sure it goes out with a bang. Derrick, a failed artist and hypnotist’s assistant happens to be the unlucky guy caught in their crosshairs!

From the creator/writer of Existence 2.0 and 3.0 comes a drug and sex-infused black comedy about surviving until last call; Forgetless is perfect for fans of GO! And IGBY GOES DOWN.
