Collider #1
DC Comics, Vertigo

Description: It started small: temporary gravity failures, time reversal loops, entropy reversals. With much fanfare a new government agency was formed with a mandate ‘to prevent and protect.’ Its official title: The Federal Bureau of Physics. Humans, if nothing else, adapt to the changing parameters of their existence. What was extraordinary soon became ordinary, a part of people’s daily lives. They move on and do what people have always done: survive. But even that new status quo is now under threat. Things are getting worse, and it falls to Special Agent Adam Hardy and his FBP team to figure out what’s going on, before it’s too late

By: Simon Oliver, Robbi Rodriguez, Nathan Fox

Knightingail Shadow Divisions #1 (of 6)
Big Dog Ink

Description: Knightingail: Shadow Divisions picks up the Knightingail saga where the first volume left off. Knightingail assaults the captured city of Suscitatio to rescue Carver families imprisoned in the vast gem mines underneath the city. However, she is not alone in her fight. Each of her mystical powered Centurion tribesmen – Kaeli, Daniel, Maragus, and Purefire – join her along the way. It’s a supernatural power fight with surprises never before seen in comics.
