Description: What do you get when you throw three murderers into one prison cell together? Well, when those characters happen to be based on the likenesses of celebrities Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (formerly of The Ramones) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), you can bet that the outcome will be anything but ordinary. From the creator of IDW’s hit series Crawl to Me (now in development to become a feature film), comes Alan Robert’s Killogy, an off-the-wall, genre-busting mash-up of crime, dark comedy, and horror. Written and illustrated by Alan Robert, the respected musician from the hard-rock group Life of Agony.

Cover By: Frank R. Paul

DescriptionFrank R. Paul is almost universally recognized as the “Father of Science Fiction Illustration,” and rightly so, since his work has influenced and inspired generations of artists and visionaries over the past eighty years. From Flash Gordon to Luke Skywalker, Paul’s presence is still being felt in the twenty-first century. Jerry Weist, noted Science Fiction historian, scholar, and founding editor of the prestigious EC comic fanzine Squa Tront, has turned his keen insight towards Paul, who envisioned a world of futuristic cities, space travel and alien life forms. These fantastic visions were realized in the pages of Amazing Stories and hundreds of other science fiction pulps and digest magazines. Weist, who authored Ray Bradbury: An Illustrated Life (in collaboration with Bradbury) has brought together informative text on Paul and a visual record of nearly every one of his incredible covers, as well as some of his very best, and rarely seen, pen and ink interior illustrations. This will be a visual feast for lovers of classic science fiction art. With an
