Four Titles Join Alterna's Newsprint Comics Line For $1.50 Or Less In June

Hitting stores in June from Alterna will be four additional titles in the company's newsprint comics line, which is so forward-thinking and innovative it brings comic book prices back to where they were 25 years ago! Joining the existing titles Adam Wreck, Lilith Dark, Amazing Age, and Croak will be Mother Russia, Scrimshaw, The Chair, and Trespasser. Back in March, Alterna successfully funded a 7-day Kickstarter that will enable them to pursue their global newsstand distribution deal. But you can pick these titles up in your local comic shop, where they'll be available two months earlier than on newsstands. Check out the titles available in June below, and don't forget about May's titles either. You can print out the order form at the bottom of this article and bring it to your retailer, and buy the whole entire line for several months for less than the cost of June's Secret Empire tie-in issues.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
