With New York Comic Con less than two weeks away, creator-owned comic book publisher ComixTribe has released a free, 60+ page digital preview of five new series that will debut at the show. Click here to download!
ComixTribe Takes Manhattan features an extended first look at EPIC #1. Written by ComixTribe publisher Tyler James and drawn by Matt Zolman, EPIC is the story of a teenager who gains incredible super powers, only to learn he has but one weakness… beautiful girls.
Also featured in this release are first looks at:
SCAM #1 by Joe Mulvey, a book about superpowered grifters who believe it’s better to die as a con man than live as a mark.
THE RED TEN #1 by Tyler James and Cesar Feliciano, a superhero murder mystery that’s Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” meets “The Justice League,” and features a NYCC exclusive cover by CP Wilson III (Stuff of Legend).
The STANDARD #1 & #2 by John Lees and Jonathon Rector, the first two issues of the award-nominated story of an elderly superhero who comes out of retirement to avenge the death of his former sidekick.
RUNNERS #1 by Steve Forbes and Mac Radwanski, a horror book that asks, “In a world over-run by zombies, with humanity on the brink of destruction, what the #$%! are vampires supposed to eat?”
ComixTribe can be found at Booth #2537 in the small press section.
