Gideon Falls #1
The cover. My interest in this book is completely because of the cool cover. What about you guys? What did you see when you first looked at it? The city or the profile?
A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness

This just looks fascinating. I like the idea of pulling a whole major US city out of the world and going from there. Not quite like Under the Dome because they sound completely set apart instead of just separated by an upside down fishbowl but close. I think this sounds better.
A decade ago 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them but after many years they gave up. Nathan Cole… won’t. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those lost, alone and afraid, living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe… Nathan is looking for something else? Why can’t he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

The Highest House #1
I read a middle grade book a while back about a little girl who was friends with an entity (even if she didn’t realize it was an entity at the time) and it was amazingly good. I’m thinking that this sounds like it would be something similar, and I just want to check it out.
The creators behind the Hugo Award-nominated The Unwritten, Mike Carey and Peter Gross, invite you into The Highest House, the story of a slave boy named Moth, who makes friends with a powerful entity called Obsidian that promises advancement and happiness. Clearly, Obsidian has a hidden agenda, but Moth has ambitions and plans of his own… Series covers by award-winning illustrator Yuko Shimizu!

Prism Stalker #1
Well, the cover is certainly eye-catching, isn’t it? But it was actually the first line of the synopsis that caught my attention. Octavia Butler, Sailor Moon, and Biopunk Horror? Ooooookay. I need to see this.
For fans of Octavia Butler, Sailor Moon, and the biopunk horror of David Cronenberg comes PRISM STALKER, an ongoing sci-fi adventure series by SLOANE LEONG. Vep is a young refugee raised away from her devastated home planet as an indentured citizen in a foreign colony. She works tirelessly for her insectoid hosts, but there is no exit in sight in this viscous, dripping citynest. The eye of opportunity is closing. Her duty is to her family and her siblings, but what more can she do for them here? The answer appears faster than she is ready for.

The October Faction: Supernatural Dreams #1
If you’ve read anything involving The October Faction, please let me know what you thought of it. I’m very tempted by the sound of this (anything with the idea of a family unit + supernatural happenings drags me in) but if they’re not interesting characters….
The October Faction is back! With their former leader and father retired, the rest of the Allan family adjusts to the new status quo and brings the monster-hunting business into the modern era. But a sinister and powerful new evil stirs… one that could tear the family apart!
