The Walking Dead, a Sea Of Red, a Strange Girl and some naked Girls — sounds like a heck of a mix, eh?
Actually it’s a great first look at four of the hottest new (excluding the two-year-old Walking Dead) series from Image Comics.
For $7 US you get the premier issue of each title, giving you a taste of what has made them all buzz books.
Here’s the brief synopsis for each:
• The Walking Dead — Police officer Rick Grimes awakens from a coma to find he’s living in a world where the dead are still up walking around and everyone he loves is missing.
• Sea Of Red – Vampires + pirates = vampirates in this well-written and visually gratifying blending of genres.
• Strange Girl – The Rapture has come and all of God’s chosen are called up to Heaven, leaving all those who remain to the not-so-tender mercies of the legions of Hell. Strange Girl follows the life of the rebellious Bethany Black and how she survives in a world gone to, well, Hell.
• Girls – A gorgeous naked woman wandering out of the woods when he’s driving home one night seems like a dream come true for Ethan Daniels. But it soon turns out to be a nightmare for Ethan and his entire community.
