    September is coming full of surprises! A new series by El Torres and the hot artist Ramiro Borrallo, following the adventures and misadventures of an everyday young girl… in the middle of the End of The World. THE APOCALYPSE GIRL! We are so really excited with this new miniseries. And it received a “Spotlight On” at the Previews Catalog!

    But it doesn’t end there! The Last Hunt, by Hannu Kesola, Janssens and Paul Moore comes to its grand finale… which will leave no one indifferent! Also, we resolicit the end of the acclaimed miniseries Planet of Daemons, from Kevin Gunstone and Paul Moore, where we will see Gaoler of Daemons’ end… or not…

    There is even more! The acclaimed by critics and readers miniseries THE WESTWOOD WITCHES is offered again in a wonderful trade! Written by horror maestro El Torres and with artwork by Abel García and DC artist Angel Hernández (Earth 2, Infinite Crisis…). This compelling and terrific story is a “don’t miss!”.

    Most common teenage issues are self-esteem, stress and pressure, dating, appearance and those worries and teen angst that won’t go away. Metis is 16, has all these problems and more. Because, on top of that, the End of the World happened and she has to cope with bloodthirsty demons and a 4,000-years old, critical, undead mom!

    “It’s not a sad-survivalist story. It’s not the story of a Chosen One destined to restore the equilibrium or the goodness, or to kill a Big Bad. It’s just the story of a common girl with all the common girl problems”, says El Torres. “Well, the catch is she’s in a middle-apocalyptic set, and her mom is a mummy -or that’s what Metis think- so the story is not only the everyday fight of every young person to find their place in the world. Well, it’s just that, but with monsters.”

    “Same universe as Nancy in Hell? We are about to relaunch the character, so… yes! Metis and Nancy share the same universe, but not the same time”, El declared.

    Ramiro Borallo, with his distinctive style, has received a lot of attention and praises from readers and reviewers in Spain. His opera prima “SON”, received the “best Andalusian book”, the Desencaja Award at 2015! The Apocalypse Girl is his first complete miniseries.

    It all comes down to this: the thrilling conclusion to the hit, blood and oh-so-many-guts, sci-fi miniseries. Witchcraft and evilness can thrive in the cold, empty space, on a desolated and wasted Earth. As The Last Hunt ends, who will be the final ones standing, the hunters of the prey?

    From the 17th Century to the age of space, The Last Hunt is a scary tale, plenty of action, where the characters try to survive and nothing is what it seems. A great reading that you will want to read all in one go!

    In the labyrinth of Sathariel, Amos Deathridge faces the disturbing truth behind his arrival in the Qliphoth and the real identity of the Succubus Queen, Heinous. Shocking revelations that threaten to break his spirit before his showdown with Count Eligos, the daemon of war.

    PLANET OF DAEMONS’ writer Kevin Gunstone – who’s most recent work was the award-nominated FUTURE PRIMITIVE for Markosia – commented: “The ideas associated with the Qliphoth fascinate me and this is a great opportunity to explore what it represents through the character of Amos who has suffered terribly from its effect on his world.”

    Jack Kurtzberg is a successful writer of young witch romance bestsellers… and he hates it so much. Suffering from writer’s block after the death of his dear brother, he decides to move back to his hometown, not knowing that his new neighbours are witches, the kind of demon worshippers that would kill anyone who could disturb their dominion  in Westwood.

    This volume reprints the critically acclaimed horror miniseries THE WESTWOOD WITCHES published by AMIGO COMICS,  leading us into the extraordinaire story of a coven of beautiful, blood-thirsty witches hiding in plain sight and how their destinies are inextricably linked with writer Jack Kurtzberg.

    Some of the reviews:

     “The Westwood Witches is a brilliant piece of thoughtful modern horror (…) El Torres writes with such a fresh angle and innovative detail that it feels like he is creating the genre.”
    –The Pullbox

    “It feels like it’s hard to find good horror comics nowadays, and The Westwood Witches is that salvation in these troubled times.”
    Cameron Hatheway ,Bleeding Cool

    “They completely blew me away (…) Torres is more than generous with the three things that shape powerful modern horror—sex, violence, and gore—while the artists compliment this character-driven story with truly haunting images.”
    Geeks of Doom

    “These women aren’t your friendly neighborhood Wiccans. They are blood thirsty, sinister and insanely hot women channeling a greater darkness than you would imagine.”
    -Christine Caprilozzi,  Horror Network

    “The most impressive thing to me is the set up of mood. The writing, the art, both create an unease throughout the book.”
    -Brett Schenker,  Graphic Policy

    Whoa. Plenty of evil witches in our batch of books, right? Don’t forget to preorder our books for the next Halloween!
