Normals – AfterShock
Adam Glass (W), Dennis Calero (A), Juan Doe (CA)
“Think about your "life" for a moment...the people you've known, the one's you've loved, and all the stuff in between. Now imagine you learned that everything YOU believed, everything YOU lived, everything YOU felt actually never happened...it was ALL not real. But it is REAL to YOU and you now must fight to save it and everyone you love. But to do that, you first have to save the world. Welcome to "The Normals." an exciting new rush-of-blood-to-the-head series and AfterShock Comics. From Adam Glass (ROUGH RIDERS, Suicide Squad, TV's Supernatural) and Dennis Calero.” – AfterShock Comics

“A woman with a vendetta decides she's going to take down the largest military contractor in the world and has the means and a plan that just might work. How do you bankrupt one of the richest, most technologically advanced and successful companies in the world? You steal all their research and give it away to everyone. Can she survive long enough to pull it off with the entire U.S. government trying to kill her?” – Image Comics
Saucer State – IDW
Paul Cornell (W), Ryan Kelly (A/CA)
“She was abducted by aliens. Now she's the President. She's going to use the power of that office to find out what really happened. But will they let her?
