Main Cover: Mike Perkins
Jackpot: Mike Perkins
BOOM! 10 Years Incentive Cover: Brian Stelfreeze
Incentive Cover: Andre de Freitas
What’s to Love: The team of Mike Carey (Suicide Risk, The Unwritten) and Mike Perkins (Deathlok) come
together for the first time since 2005’s Spellbinders for a taut horror thriller set in their native England. If
you’re a fan of horror films like Insidious and The Conjuring, or comics like Curse and Nailbiter, you’ll love
how Rowans Ruin unfolds as it slowly clues you in on the terrifying secret that is at the heart of the
story.

What It’s About: Katie has always had things pretty easy, growing up in comfortable circumstances in
Florida. But when she finds herself with a long summer break before grad school, she decides to do a
house-swap with a British girl, Emily, as a way to vacation relatively cheaply—and to get out from under
her parents’ attentiveness. England is great, so different from Florida, and the house, called Rowans
Rise, is charming. But soon she starts having nightmares—really, really, strong ones. Curious, Katie
researches the owners of the house, and discovers it may have more of a sinister history than she
thought…

BOOM_Cognetic_001_A_Main BOOM_Cognetic_001_C_IncentiveCOGNETIC #1 (of 3)
Retail Price: $4.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eryk Donovan
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Eryk Donovan
BOOM! 10 Years Incentive Cover: Brian Stelfreeze
Incentive Cover: Juan Doe
What’s to Love: The creative team behind the award-nominated Memetic is back with another
apocalyptic tale! We obviously love working with James Tynion IV (see The Woods, UFOlogy, and the
aforementioned Memetic), and we know partnering him once again with artist Eryk Donovan will lead to
another great-looking story. In Cognetic, Tynion and Donovan offer a look at the fundamentally human
desire for control—that deep-seated belief we all feel in our darkest moments that if we had total,
absolute power, we would be able to create a perfect world.

What It Is: Every human believes that they are self-reliant, self-determined individuals, each set on their
own course. They’ve built civilizations, they’ve built culture, they’ve built lives… But what if that isn’t the
right track? What if there is a singular mind ready to take back control and finally right the destiny of
mankind and build a better tomorrow? Cognetic is the story of a powerful psychic being that once
controlled one-third of the world’s population as a part of its hivemind, and his return to humanity in
modern-day New York City. It’s a psychic action thriller, precariously positioned on the edge of outright
apocalypse. It’s also the story of the young woman, the assistant to the director of the FBI, who might be
the only one who can save humanity, but at a terrible, terrible cost. The second entry in Tynion and
Donovan’s “Apocalypse Trilogy.” Each issue in this miniseries is oversized with 48 pages!

animated series!
What It Is: If you’ve ever wondered what Marceline was like before she became a vampire, here’s your
chance to find out! In this oversized, self-contained tale that takes place before she was “turned,” we

What’s to Love: It’s our first-ever Lumberjanes special and we could not be more excited to welcome
writer Faith Erin Hicks (The Adventures of Superhero Girl) and newcomer artist Rosemary ValeroO’Connell
to our growing Lumberteam. This self-contained story perfectly captures the spirit of what the
Lumberjanes are: hardcore lady-types who can fend for themselves, but also quick to help those who
are in need!

What It Is: In this special one-shot issue, a monster is terrorizing the Lumberjanes camp and the girls go
to stop it. However, it turns out that the monster is being framed and now the girls have to figure out
who’s doing it and to what end! Join April, Jo, Mal, Molly and Ripley as they earn their Beyond Bay Leaf

BOOM_DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep_Omnibus_TPDO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? OMNIBUS TP
Retail Price: $39.99
Author: Philip K. Dick
Artist: Tony Parker
Cover Artist: Jay Shaw
What’s to Love: If you loved the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner, chances are you know it’s based
on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? From 2009-2011, we published a 24-issue
graphic interpretation of the novel as realized by artist Tony Parker. Now, for the first time, all 24 issues
of the Eisner Award-nominated series are collected into one complete omnibus edition, featuring a
brand-new cover by Mondo artist Jay Shaw and essays from Jonathan Lethem, Ed Brubaker, Warren
Ellis, Matt Fraction, and more.

What It Is: San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War has killed millions, driving
entire species to extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living
creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies build incredibly realistic fakes: horses, birds,
cats, sheep…even humans. Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six
rogue androids. They’re machines, but look, sound, and think like humans—and infinitely more
dangerous.

BOOM_Memetic_TPMEMETIC TP
Retail Price: $14.99
Author: James Tynion IV
Artist: Eryk Donovan
Cover Artist: Eryk Donovan
What’s to Love: Memetic is truly an event comic, and a wholly unique take on the disaster genre. Much
like his work on The Woods, writer James Tynion IV—with the help of fantastic newcomer Eryk Donovan
(The House in the Wall)—brings horror to a whole new generation of fans of J-horror films like Uzumaki
and The Ring. Plus, Memetic was nominated for the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Comic!
What It Is: A meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then virally spreads to multiple persons
and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme’s success comes from its
effectiveness to the host, but history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through
society. Memetic shows the progression of a weaponized meme that leads to the utter annihilation of
the human race within 72 hours. The root of this apocalypse is a single image on the internet, a “meme”
in the popular sense. A meme that changes everything. Collects the complete three-issue miniseries.

BOOM_FictionSquad_TPFICTION SQUAD TP
Retail Price: $19.99
Author: Paul Jenkins
Artists: Ramon Bachs
Cover Artist: Ramon Bachs
What’s to Love: After publishing Paul Jenkins’ Fairy Quest, we kinda have a thing for Fablewood, where
all fairy tales and bedtime stories live side-by-side. So when he came up with a mystery and fantasy
mash-up adventure set there and enlisted his Civil War: Front Line artist Ramon Bachs, we hopped
aboard faster than Alice went down the rabbit hole. In Fiction Squad, every nursery rhyme is a crime
scene in the making. If you like your mystery mashed up with fantasy, like Fables and Once Upon a Time,
this has got you covered.

What It Is: Fablewood is a pretty dangerous place, but no area is more dangerous than the City of
Rimes, deep in the heart of the Children’s Realm. After transferring in from the realm of Mystery, a
failed detective from an unfinished prose novel, Frankie Mack, is about to uncover a conspiracy that
could unmake storytelling itself. After Humpty Dumpty is pushed to crack and Jack (of Jack and Jill) goes
AWOL, Frankie and his partner, Simple Simon, are put on the case. Collects the complete six-issue
miniseries.

ARCHAIA_Iscariot_HCISCARIOT HC
Retail Price: $24.99
Author: S.M. Vidaurri
Artist: S.M. Vidaurri
Cover Artist: S.M. Vidaurri
What’s to Love: If you’ve read S.M. Vidaurri’s first original graphic novel Iron: Or, the War After or his
issue of Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches, you might understand when we say his watercolor
stylings are hauntingly beautiful to look at—they have a soft gentleness to them, yet can convey the
most stark of imagery. His new OGN has us completely mesmerized once again, invoking comparisons to
The Legend of Korra and the works of Hayao Miyazaki.

What It Is: When Carson, a young girl living with cancer, is bestowed with age-old magic by a rebellious
sorcerer named Iscariot, she must navigate her new powers, face the life she had thought she left
behind forever, and take on the order of magicians who want to control her destiny. Carson discovers
that Iscariot’s intentions might not have been as altruistic as it first appeared, and learns the hard way
that magic comes at a cost.

robots beneath Kat’s workshop leads the two friends to question how they are linked to the mysterious
ghost that attacked Annie the year before. And as a new Medium-in-Training, Annie is able to visit the
powerful trickster god Coyote in Gillitie Forest, a visit that reveals more than she ever imagined!

BOOMBOX_GiantDays_v1_TPGIANT DAYS VOL. 1 TP
Retail Price: $9.99
Author: John Allison
Artist: Lissa Treiman
Cover Artist: Lissa Treiman
What’s to Love: John Allison’s daily webcomics Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round are hilarious, the
kind of strips where every panel makes you laugh out loud. As a result, John has earned a large, loyal
following of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years. Giant Days is an
entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends away at university, and is a series fans of things like Scott
Pilgrim and Friends with Boys will not want to miss!

What It Is: Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now,
away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of
handwringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful,
unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Collects issues #1-4.

average summer camp and Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are not your average campers. Between the
river monsters, magic, and myths, this summer is only just beginning! Collects issues #5-8.
