Dan Panosian & Dalibor Talajic's Black Tape in AWA Feb 2023 Solicits

Dan Panosian and Dalibor Talajic are launching a new comic book series from AWA in February, Black Tape, about a heavy metal band opening a doorway to hell via their clearly satanic panicked music. Something that Sumerian Comics seem to be also exploring that month with Rock And Roll Hell #1, complete with a cassette tape of their band in question. So the one that has Tape in its name doesn't have a tape with the comic, and the one that hasn't, does. Here's the rest of AWA's February 2023 solicits and solicitations.

Once upon a time, we lived alongside Legends. Creatures of myth. Centaurs, fauns, gorgons, kelpies, gnomes, and more.
They were spectacular. Majestic. Powerful. Peaceful. Pure. In comparison, we were ugly. Weak. Warmongering. Rotten. Is it
any wonder we could not live alongside them any longer? After driving these Legends to the fringes of society, an uglier
form of mythos takes shape in the form of rumors of live snuff shows for dark web high rollers. When a mysterious young
woman, Nessa, enlists the help of a hacker to take a tour of the grisliest corners of the Dark Web, she sets in motion a war
between those who peddle to mankind's darkest fantasies and a world that transcends imagination. Trojan is fantasy
thriller full of wonder and horror in equal measure.

In this action-packed prelude to the hit series, acclaimed horror writer Daniel Kraus (George Romero's The Living Dead, The
Autumnal) unveils four globe-spanning tales from the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse when even the wildest
rumors couldn't measure up to the horror to come. A streetwise Russian cop patrols the back alleys of the opportunistic
black market that emerges in response to the crisis…a North Korean soldier observes strange happenings on the DMZ…An
E.R. nurse in the rural South fights to protect her hospital from threats without and within…A transgender flight attendant
who has observed disturbing clues as she crisscrosses the globe keeps a wary eye on the passenger in seat 23C. See how
the end of the world as we know it began in this climactic issue!
