CLOAKS #3
DAY MEN #5
EMPTY MAN #5 (OF 6)
FAIRY QUEST OUTCASTS #1
 WHY WE LOVE IT: FAIRY QUEST is the passion project of Paul Jenkins and Humberto
Ramos, the team behind REVELATIONS and a legendary run on Spectacular Spider-Man.
They have put their heart, love, and creative wonder into this groundbreaking series, and
we're excited to explore more of the world of Fablewood!
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: We all grew up reading fairy tales. We all love fairy tales! But if
you enjoy your fairy tales with a twist like Fables, Fairest, or Once Upon a Time, FAIRY
QUEST is the perfect series for you. Plus, Paul and Humberto have already made the fans
their co-publishers with a successful Kickstarter.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: The adventures of Red and Mister Woof have only just begun. In
Fablewood, all of the stories that have ever been told live side-by-side.
But it is an evil place, overseen by the awful Mister Grimm and his cadre of Think Police. Red and Woof want to escape to a world where their friendship isn't prohibited, but nothing can prepare them for what lies ahead in the Dark Forest.

FICTION SQUAD #2 (OF 6)
GARFIELD #31
OVER GARDEN WALL SPECIAL #1

WHY WE LOVE IT: "Tome of the Unknown" is a fantastic animated short by Pat McHale (Adventure Time, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack) and we are happy to see it come to life, not only as Cartoon Network's first original animated mini entitled OVER THE GARDEN WALL, but also as an overcomic! Pat is great and we're thrilled to get to work with him on this one
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Bringing the classic feel of a Victorian fable, this is a fun journey of two brothers trying to find their way home. With the talent of Pat McHale on story and the illustrative storytelling of Jim Campbell (STAR WARS, THE KRACHMACHER) this is definitely going to be an awesome journey that will appeal to fans of The Secret of NIMH, The Triplets of Belleville, and classic fairy tales.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Two brothers, Wirt and Greg, find themselves lost in the Unknown, a strange forest adrift in time. With the help of a shadowy Woodsman and an ill-tempered bluebird named Beatrice, they travel through the foggy land hoping to find their way home and encountering all manner of adventures along the way.
