When a new drug called VANTA hits the streets, word is it's the hottest thing since Ecstacy. For regular people, it has all the highs and none of the lows of traditional drugs.

The Project sends Indigo to investigate, and it soon becomes apparent that this is more than just a new designer distraction for the masses. Indigo, together with former Detective Ellen Waters race to find the source of the substance poisoning their people, before it's too late!

LOUD OGN TP NEW PTG
NOV201173
(W) Maria Llovet (A/CA) Maria Llovet
The LOUD nightclub. A latecomer stripper, a pissed waitress, a hitmen couple, a suspension bondage performer, a pregnant teenager, a clan of vampires, a pedophile, a lesbian junkie, a divorcing middle-aged woman, a sadistic dominatrix, and many other souls in search of love, drugs, and blood converge at the hottest club in town on a night that none will ever forget. If they survive.
LOUD is like THE HUNGER if directed by Tarantino — a stylish, tripped-out bloodbath of beautiful and vicious decadence.
You'll feel the beat throbbing in your skull, smell the sweat, taste the blood, and lose yourself in the wicked underworld masterfully wrought by MARIA LLOVET (Faithless, There's Nothing There).
LOUD is the kind of book that will get into your spine and give you flashbacks twenty years later, you'll turn to your friend and say "remember when comics had guts and creators made books like LOUD?"
The smash hit that instantly sold out of its hardcover printing and its first paperback printing, now available again in paperback. In Shops: Jan 06, 2021 SRP: $12.99

XED TP VOL 01 (O/A) (MR)
NOV201171
(W) Tony Patrick (A) Ayhan Hayrula, Brian Level, Christopher Peterson (CA) Chris Visions
A sci-fi thriller about a next-gen form of psychiatry: 'subliminal hitmen' injected into your mind who hunt down the demons that haunt you. Ex-military sharpshooter Colin McClure is Mezign Corp's most recent recruit for the still-experimental (and often deadly) job of subliminal hitman. McClure is the perfect candidate for two reasons: a) he's a killing machine, and b) he lost his legs in the war, so subliminal-ops are his only way to see any action. But he's also a dangerous candidate for one reason unknown to Mezign: Colin's true motive is to enter the mind of his catatonic daughter and bring her out of a coma. Collects issues 1-5. In Shops: Jan 13, 2021 SRP: $16.99
