I enjoyed issue one of Black’s Myth, but I’m glad to say that issue two elevated the story from fun but somewhat unremarkable noir to something that feels truly exciting.
Pitched as an off-beat horror rom-com, Possessive is a three-part series from Zenescope that boasts a team-up between writers Hans Rodionoff (Lovecraft, Lost Boys: The Thirst) and Adam F. Goldberg (ABC’s The Goldbergs). It follows the burgeoning romance between failed artist and abject loser Todd and the ghastly specter haunting his recently purchased fixer-upper, whose…
The next installment in the ongoing Marvel’s Voices series, Identity #1 provides another set of short stories highlighting a specific minoritized community.

In the neo-noir Are You Lonesome Tonight?, an air-conditioning repairman runs over someone in the middle of the night. Out of guilt, he starts an unusual relationship with the deceased’s widow. But the late husband may not be as innocent as he first appeared.
A scientist agrees to test a robot partner in I’m Your Man. Despite her best efforts, the robot might just be the key to her happiness.
Breakwater is not a gentle slice-of-life story, nor is it a harrowing tale of mental illness. Rather, much like many lived experiences, it’s something in between. Katriona Chapman’s soft graphite art deftly conveys the personalities and emotions of regular people facing a difficult decision, transforming the mundane backdrop of a dilapidated cinema into a stage…
