KILLING MARS #1 (MR)
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
By popular demand comes the monthly sequel to Terminal Alice and Wh#@e. Jacob Mars was downsized from the CIA but owes over a hundred thousand dollars in alimony and bills. While doing anything for money, he has upset the wrong people who have put a five-million dollar bounty on his head. His only option is to pay the female contact killers of Terminal Alice protection money to keep him alive.

KILLING MARS #2 (MR)
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
You would think that having to pay five, female, contract killers protection money would be the worst of Jacob Mars's problems. You'd be wrong. Not only does he constantly have to watch his back, but now he has to take Eve, the excommunicated, killer nun with him on a job in the adult film industry. Fun… Fun… Not so fun!

KILLING MARS #3 (MR)
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
Jacob Mars's problems continue as he and Laura, the psychotic redhead contract killer, have to run The Gauntlet in Thailand. Basically, one of Asia's largest gang has agreed to allow Mars and Laura to fight for Jacob's life by having to survive a run through an alley littered with murders. It's not something he will be able to joke his way out of. This third issue will continue to make readers crazy as they try to figure out what happens next.

KILLING MARS #4 (MR)
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
In our insanely fun fourth issue, Jacob Mars is going to Comic-Con, the real one. With a weird twist, Jacob and Alex are heading to San Diego on a routine surveillance-sting operation and end up dealing with Furies and money laudering. The chaos continues!

(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
While Nikola Tesla is attempting to get over his suicide attempt with the help of Little John, the fairy tale lies continue. Edward Hyde and Goldie have to go to Mexico to kill some drug-dealing dwarfs, and Snow just wants them all dead. Viva Las Vegas!

TESLA AND HYDE SCARY FAILS #3
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
Scary Fails moves forward with another insane chapter. While Edward Hyde and Goldie Locks are hunting two of the seven, drug-dealing dwarves in Mexico, Nikola Tesla and Little John try to avoid being the hunted back in Vegas. The adventures continue as we keep the Pulp Fiction version of Once Upon a Time going.

TESLA AND HYDE SCARY FAILS #4 (MR)
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
Tesla and Hyde: Scary Fails continues to run forward as Abraham Van Helsing goes after the contract Snow White has placed on Edward Hyde head. Nikola is still fighting to find his place in the world with the help of Little John. Their adventures continue as we keep the Pulp Fiction version of Once Upon a Time going strong into its fourth issue.

TESLA AND HYDE SCARY FAILS #5 (MR)
BIG CITY COMICS
(W) Jeffrey Kaufman (A) Frederico Zumel (CA) Franchesco
Shotguns, grenades and sleigh bells, we will see who is actually on whose list. Scary Fails' first chapter comes to an end as Edward Hyde and Nikola Tesla fly to Bangladesh to kill "The Claus." While Fairy Tales normally have happy endings, this is the world of Scary Fails where the lies are the truth and the truth is what we make of it.
