Avatar Comics Solicits October 2015

We are including the complete solicits for Avatar below, which has only a few very focused comics.  Avatar is known in recent years for publishing ultra-violent, creator-owned work from some very well known creators.  They attracted their talent, which is made up of people like Alan Moore, Jonathan Hickman, and Garth Ennis, by promising them they could do whatever they want.  This has created a strange mix of stories, though the art is often just this house style they use that doesn’t stand out too much.  Take a look at what there is, and Alan Moore’s Providence is definitely the one we are following most closely.

Kieron Gillen’s groundbreaking alternate war history begins a new terrifying chapter in super human World War II warfare. The Nazi’s have enacted Hitler’s master plan, the Great Burn is now turning all of Europe into a fire-blasted wasteland. City after city, country after country, the very earth itself is being purged by the unparalleled power of the German onslaught. With no answer on the horizon to stopping the Axis from purifying the entire continent, the Allies turn to Stephanie and the monster that is the HMH Churchill for a glimmer of hope. The horrors of super human warfare continue to rage throughout Europe and the destruction mounts to global levels. Uber is an unforgettable vision of the misery of war turned apocalypse. This volume collects issues #23 – 27 of the ongoing Uber comic book series and the Uber 2014 Free Comic Book Day Special.

How do you join The Tokyo Club? Simple. You climb into your single seat, single engine fighter- loaded with fuel and ammunition- and fly 700 miles across the open Pacific until you reach the mainland of Japan. There you fight off any enemy aircraft attempting to hit the American bombers you’re escorting to their targets. Still alive? Now comes the fun part. You fly another 700 miles back home to your airstrip on Iwo Jima, fuel running lower and lower, nothing but ocean for miles around. Any battle damage you’ve suffered will reduce your chances even further. Make it back and you’re in the club. And more good news: you get to do it all again tomorrow. Part one of three, by Garth Ennis and Tomas Aria.
