Imagine Carl Kolchak as a female reporter of color – covering the crime beat in 1972 Detroit – and you’d have Elena Abbott.
Abbott’s investigation of a series of grisly crimes (that the police have ignored – sound familiar?) leads to a dark magical force that was responsible for the death of her husband a decade earlier.
Written by Saladin Ahmed (Marvel’s Black Bolt, The Crescent Moon Kingdoms novels) and artist Sami Kivelä (Black Mask’s Beautiful Canvas), Abbott #1 will be available in print and digital, in January, 2018.

The saga that began with a boy with a jet pack falling into the Taylor family farm will conclude early next year – Rust Vol. 4: Soul in the Machine brings the story of Jet Jones to an end.
“Rust is about loss, loyalty, love, and courage,” says series creator Royden Lepp. “This final volume takes place entirely in the course of one final night on the farm as each member of the family must fight for their lives and choose what they truly believe.”
Rust Vol. 4: Soul in the Machine will be released in February 2018 – in both hardcover and softcover editions by BOOM! Studios under its Archaia imprint.
