cold-colonyAlongside his earlier works like Delta and Mack & Mondo SJ McCune’s Cold Colony was successfully backed on kickstarter earlier this year, and has now been released on Comixology, so we take a look at this new one-shot about a murder mystery taking place within the colony of a cold planet.

bee-stingMatthew D. Smith and Jeremy Massie have come together to create Bee Sting, a slasher-inspired comic book with all the tropes and cliches you could shake a stick at.

assault-on-fortress-doom-coverIn an alternate version of the 20th century, the Nazis weren’t completely defeated in 1945 and a rogue general manages to activate a doomsday device. The only way the world can be saved is by a group of the Allieds’ best heroes. That’s the brilliantly old school set up for Lex McDonald’s Assault on Fortress Doom, so we catch up with him to find out if this is the start of a world war two comics revival or just an excuse for him to write over the top action sequences involving commandos and submarines!
