New Series This Week 

The Agent #1
Ablaze Comics
Written by Mathieu Gabella
Art by Fernando Dagnino
Cover Art by Dagnino

For some, magic is a myth. For others, it is a weapon.

What if witchcraft really existed? If our beliefs, superstitions, and legends were material? This is what Rhym, a young narcotics lieutenant, must question when she finds herself confronted with the impossible. While staking out a subway deal, a suspect magically kills his informant and drives the entire station into madness with just a handful of weed. Rhym miraculously escapes unscathed. She’s unaware, but she is a witch, and that fact arouses the interest of a very particular unit of the French secret services. A group of special agents who, like the criminals they hunt, have mastered the art of sorcery…

Welcome to a world where it is better to wear an amulet than a bulletproof vest and where a simple curse by email can destroy you more surely than a bomb. Between thriller, espionage, and fantasy, Mathieu Gabella and DC Comics artist Fernando Dagnino present a powerful adventure!

Release Date: November 8, 2023

PCS NOTES: This one has a plot that seems very interesting. 

Count Crowley: Mediocre Midnight Monster Hunter #1

A dead werewolf would have made Jerri Bartman feel victorious just a few days ago. But this deceased beast was her friend and our beloved monster hunter is shocked and depressed. The return of her predecessor brings no consolation and now there’s a ghoulish child-snatcher on the loose in Beloit… Holly Halloween, Count Crowley! Things are really getting batty!
