    From the Eisner-nominated El Torres and the art by Angel Hernandez (Green Lantern/Star Trek) comes the horror in the Victorian Age! A mass murder involving a haunting, a cult of gentlemen, Intruders from the Outer Void and possessed dolls, makes the mysterious Professor Hawke come to light. And the magician he keeps in the madhouse of Bedlam!

    “Finally our beloved project Phantasmagoria will see the light”, says El Torres. “This book is a horror-fantasy book in a setting that I always loved. We have ghosts, we have Lovecraftian stuff coming from the Void, we also have evil dolls and… wizards weaving and taking nice cups of tea! Everything I enjoy to write is in here. And the artwork by Ángel Hernández is more than sublime. All the covers, the logo, and the first issue are all done by him. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.”

    Also, you can see a preview and a nice video below!

    When the Mythos conquer Gerada… well, Gerada adapts itself. Shopkeepers sell sunscreen to Deep Ones and frogs can be swept away. But even so, there are only a few days left before the Great Deep One wakes up, and if Bram and Weasel fail to close the gate, possibly even Gerada will go to hell.

    El Torres keeps telling us these are the funniest adventures of our picaros!  And we keep telling you… You don’t need to have read the other volumes to enjoy Rogues (but we highly recommend it: we need the money).

    And we are happy to have Ramiro Borrallo doing our incentive cover, served 1:10, very limited quantities!

    The last issue of this long-awaited first volume by Eisner-nominated El Torres and Abel Cicero! When Nancy thinks she’s found an escape from Hell, everything changes. The ones she considered her friends, might be a menace. Because this is Hell, and no one good is kept in there! Except, maybe, the Fallen Angel Lucifer.

     “This new Nancy In Hell explodes in your hands and mind’s eye like Geoff Darrow’s Shemp Buffet. A wasteland, chainsaws, badass characters and demons galore!”

    RESOLICITED: STRAITJACKET TP

    Writer: El Torres
    Artist: Guillermo Sanna

    JUL181574-STL000933

    MATURE READERS

    Alexandra Wagner is confined in an expensive asylum. She murdered her brother when she was a child, and has been jumping from an institution to another, thinking she’s protecting our world against monsters called The Feeders with the help of her deceased brother. Thomas Hayes is her psychiatrist, and he believes she’s totally mad.

    Well, she’s totally mad. But she’s also right.

    This volume compiles the acclaimed and really hard-to-find horror masterwork by El Torres and Guillermo Sanna!

    This is what reviewers say about Straitjacket:

    “The story inside was anything but common. El Torres strikes again (…) If you’re into horror or maybe you just like stories about the insane, then you’ll definitely want to check out Straitjacket.”
    —Dustin Cabeal, Comic Bastards

    “Horror is hit-or-miss for me, more so the cinematic kind. The absolute best depictions are the ones that play with your mind, have you delve deep into your psyche, so much so that you question reality as we know it after viewing.(…) The first entry to this four-part tale deserves an 8.5 out of 10 on the crazy scale!”
    —Paul Miranda, Comic Asylum

    “Considering that Torres is the current best horror writer in comics (yeah, I said it), it’s kind of neat that he takes one of his older horror comics (The Veil) and puts it in the same universe as this one. I love shit like that.”
    _Greg Burgas, Comic Book Resources

    “This story is amazingly well written and explores the boundaries of a world we both perceive and don’t at the same time. It makes us question what we believe in and in the treatment of those deemed different than ourselves. Horror has a new master and that’s El Torres.”
    —Steven Leitman, Reading with a Flight Ring

    “El Torres writes a stellar, gripping first issue to a series that looks to be the beginnings of a modern comics masterpiece of horror (…) This story is mesmerizing, and paired with Guillermo Sanna’s pencils, this book becomes an absolute home run(…) If Amigo Comics keeps this up, they will become the new face of horror in the comics industry. This book has “movie adaptation” written all over it.
    RATING: 10 out of 10. “
    –Tex Comics and Reviews
