JANUARY
It’s 1987. Marcus Lopez hates school. His grades suck. He has no money. The jocks are hassling his friends. He can’t focus in class, his mind constantly drifting to the stunning girl in the front row and the Dag Nasty show he has tickets to. But the jocks are the children of Joseph Stalin’s top assassin, the teachers are members of an ancient league of assassins, the class he’s failing is “Dismemberment 101” and his crush, member of the most notorious crime syndicate in Japan, has a double-digit body count. Welcome to the most brutal high school on earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At King’s Dominion high school for the deadly arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates poison.
Join writer RICK REMENDER with rising star WESLEY CRAIG (BATMAN) and legendary colorist LEE LOUGHRIDGE (FEAR AGENT), to reminisce the mid’s 1980′s underground through the eyes of the most damaged and dangerous teenagers on Earth.

NOVEMBER 6
Former member of the anarchistic order of scientists, Grant McKay has finally done the impossible; he has deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality.

The only question is how far are they willing to go to get home again?
Join writer RICK REMENDER with superstar art team of MATTEO SCALERA and DEAN WHITE, for this face-melting science fiction epic, the spiritual sequel to FEAR AGENT.
