Anomaly: The Rubicon by Skip Brittenham and Brian Haberlin (Anomaly Publishing 15 November 2017 / $49.99) - Product Description: Uncover the dark mystery of life's origins on Anomaly as evidence of earlier Conglomerate missions and experiments gone wrong come to light. Then take a trip with Jon, Samantha, Tonni, Bal'ka and Aodh to deliver the first blow in a rebellion against the seemingly omnipotent Conglomerate.

They're on The Conglomerate's most fortified world during The Rubicon – a twisted mix of old Soviet Union May Day parade meets gladiatorial Olympics – complete with blood sports featuring aliens and alien creatures. It's the most widely broadcast event in the known galaxy designed to tout The Conglomerate's might.

It's the perfect place for a first rebellious strike – with the help of a little technology-eating friend. All eyes are watching. Discover the most powerful aliens humans have ever encountered...and they hold Jon responsible for killing their children on Sestus Prime.

Meet new characters and get reacquainted with old friends. Discover new worlds as the ground-breaking Anomaly adventure continues.

Demon, Volume 4 by Jason Shiga (First Second 07 November 2017 / $19.99) - Product Description: Immortal actuary Jimmy makes a startling discovery: Agent Hunter, his long-dead adversary, is actually alive and a demon himself! Hunter has spent the last century concocting a deadly trap for his nemesis, and he has the perfect bait: Jimmy's daughter, Sweet Pea. In the epic showdown to to end all epic showdowns, we finally reach the thrilling conclusion to this madcap series.

From the brilliant and profane mind of Jason Shiga, known for his high-concept comics work on the web and in print, comes a magnum opus: a four-volume mystery adventure about the shocking chaos (and astronomical body count) one highly rational and utterly sociopathic man can create in the world, given one simple supernatural power.

Satania by Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoët (NBM Publishing 15 November 2017 / $24.99) - Product Description: Charlotte--aka Charlie--a pretty redhead, sets up an expedition to find her brother. The young scientist, who disappeared underground several months ago, claimed, to everyone's astonishment, to be able to prove the existence of Hell by using Darwin's theory of evolution. The little group, led by Charlie, plunge underground in his pursuit. The deeper they progress into the entrails of our planet, the more they enter another world that hides other forms of life heretofore never experienced. The discovery changes them gradually in a way they cannot at first perceive.

In a lost and long forgotten valley high up in the mountains, The Mercenary has been contracted to save a woman from the mysterious and powerful Cult of the Sacred Fire. Each volume is complemented with articles at the back about the history and the making of this series over its gloried, decades-long history.
