Zeus’ son, Heracles, is now a depressed drunk, while the old gods struggle to stay alive after decades of Christian disruption.

Now Heracles must sober up and protect the only witness to identify the killer.  Release Date: Fall 2022

It’s 1997 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A 134-year-old vampire (with the body of a 9-year-old girl) is squatting in a run-down basement apartment. This is Elsie Baker, and she can’t even buy her cigarettes because adults won’t take her seriously. In order to move among the “normals” undetected, she must find a willing human to act as her babysitter. Enter Brenda Zelinski, a dejected 18-year-old stuck in her hometown with no plans and no hope. All Brenda wants is a quick payday so she can afford to fly to Scotland and jump off a cliff to end her miserable life in grand fashion. Together, these two lost souls form an unlikely friendship around their mutual hate for literally everyone else. Release Date: Spring 2022

THE BONES OF THE GODS

From writer/creator Brendan Deneen, artist Mauricio Melo

For thousands of years, the Torathians and the Solturians have killed one another in the name of their respective Gods, even though neither religion has proof that either God actually exists. Until the day that both Gods appear in the sky, battling each other to the death, and nearly destroying the world as a result.  Twenty years later, society has begun to rebuild from the mass destruction decades earlier.  The bones of the Gods have been scattered across the planet and contain incredible power, and thus are highly desired but difficult to find. Sixteen year old Esper Haddon just wants to live a normal life but when she discovers a bone while working on her family farm, dark forces become aware of the discovery, and nothing will ever be the same for her.
