X'ed And Clandestino – Two New Comics From Black Mask In October 2015

As we ave noted, Black Mask Studios seems to be roaring through the charts, on the back of the success of We Are Not Alone, with much anticipation for Young Terrorists. And in October, two new titls to announce…

From Tony Patrick and Ayhan Hayrula we get X'ed #1, a sci-fi thriller about a next-gen form of psychiatry: "subliminal hitmen" injected into your mind who hunt down and kill the demons that haunt you. Ex-military sharpshooter Colin McClure is Mezign Corporation'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.


And from Amancay Nahuelpan, we have Clandestino, in which the country of Tairona became a no man's land after the military coup. Guerrillas were formed across the lands, and rebels unified against the dictator to resist the regime. The hopes of many lay on Clandestino, who barely escaped from the military attacks as a child, and was then recruited by the rebel forces, to later lead the revolution against the dictator. An all-new miniseries by Amancay Nahuelpan (Young Terrorists, Boy-1, Robocop).

STK684891Will either be as big a hit for Black Masj as their other series? We also get the final issue of Transference #5 by Michael Moreci and Ron Salas in which the past and present collide as Colton confronts the terrorists and tries to save his family….
