Comics Experience will be launching four new bomic book titles on January 13 via comiXology. The four titles -- Past the Last Mountain, Karma Police, Wretched Things and Deluge -- will be released monthly following their debut, and feature alumni from the comapny's comic book training program. The creators and premise of each series is as follows:
- Past the Last Mountain by Paul Allor, Louie Joyce, and Gannon Beck brings together an unlikely trio of fantasy creatures in a story of unity and survival.
- Karma Police by Chris Lewis, Tony Gregori, Jasen Smith, and Nic J. Shaw investigates a bizarre generation-spanning mystery full of murder, intrigue, reincarnation, and even luchador demons.
- Wretched Things by Devon Wong, Ken Perry, and John Hunt peers into a world where The Vermin reign supreme.
- Deluge by JD Oliva and Richard P. Clark sets a thrilling crime drama against the backdrop of a post-Katrina Gulf Coast.
Comics Experience was founded by former Marvel and IDW editor Andy Schmidt as a training ground for comic book creators. Last year, it entered a partnership with IDW to release comic books including next week's new Gutter Magic series.
"ComiXology offers us a unique way to get even more fantastic content to more fans around the world. And the more truly great creator-owned and controlled projects getting published, and that's just good for everyone," said Schmidt. "The Comics Experience Digital Publishing program is the latest way for us to help bring new, talented creators to audiences around the world and put them in front of the industry's largest publishers."
