BOOM  
BEE AND PUPPYCAT #6
 Nothing can ever be normal for poor Bee, and that includes getting strange house guests that make her nontemp life seem more like a fulltime job! PuppyCat doesn't say this often...well, he does, but he's got a big case of the "Toldyouso's" that Bee will definitely not want to hear. 
  CAPTURE CREATURES #1
 WHY WE LOVE IT: Frank and Becky's sidewriting and gorgeous artwork have always been a favorite of ours, especially with their original web comics like TINY KITTEN TEETH. Getting a chance to tell their original adorable creature story and seeing more of what they can do...yeah, we wouldn't miss this.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Becky Dreistadt (ADVENTURE TIME 2014 ANNUAL) and Frank Gibson (THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL) are two of the most clever and visually arresting creators in the business, and this is one of their most ambitious projects ever. From the vivid visuals to the rad story and hilarious, heartwarming moments, you'll love every second in this world. If you like titles like POKÉMON or DIGIMON, or just like cool things, this is definitely the comic for you.
WHAT'S IT ABOUT: Over a hundred wonderful and terrifying creatures have suddenly appeared on earth. Two teens investigate the origins of these curious creatures and how they can stop those who are trying to destroy them.

CLIVE BARKERS NIGHTBREED #7
DAWN OF PLANET OF APES #1
 WHY WE LOVE IT: BOOM! has a long history with PLANET OF THE APES and for good reason: We love those damn dirty apes. Serving as a perfect tableau to examine society's ills through the lens of science fiction, we were thrilled to explore those themes in the modern setting of the new films.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Michael Moreci (CURSE, HOAX HUNTERS) and Dan McDaid (MIND THE GAP) bring the hardworld of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to life - dealing with both classic and modern POTA questions of what the true meaning of "society" is, and if being "civilised" is even possible in a world wracked with strife. Great for fans of endstories like 12 MONKEYS, THE ROAD, and CHILDREN OF MEN.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Bridging the 10gap between the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES films, fans will bear witness to the fall of humanity and the rise of Caesar's civilisation. While the apes of the world have yet to advance as a species, Caesar must find a way to unify them to one cause. On the other side of the country, Malcom must venture into the decaying Americas with his family to find a cure for the plague slowly killing his wife, Rita. World powers will shift as civilisations collapse and rise.

SATOSHI KON OPUS TP
 Brilliant anime director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, Perfect Blue) died tragically young in 2010 at the age of forty-six. But before he became a director, he was a manga artist, and Dark Horse is honored to remember Kon with the release of Satoshi Kon's OPUS, an omnibus collection of a two-volume manga from 1996, created by Kon on the eve of his first film. OPUS contains the mastery of both realism and surrealism that would make Kon famous in Perfect Blue, as a manga artist planning a shocking surprise ending to his story gets literally pulled into his own work-to face for himself what he had planned for his characters!
Satoshi Kon was a Time magazine 2010 Person of the Year.
Kon was eulogized by director Darren Aronofsky.
Kon was a chief assistant to Katsuhiro Otomo on the Akira manga.
Printed on prestige paper; first four pages are in color.
