COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL: DEVIL'S DUE AFTERMATH

Devil's Due unveiled its lineup and creators for the launch of Aftermath, its super-hero imprint, during its panel on Saturday at Comic-Con International.

The titles include:

* Defex, by Marv Wolfman, Stefano Caselli and Sunder Raj, launching in October.

Here's how Devil's Due describes the book:

"What if you could unlock your secret potential? What would happen if you could change who you are? Would it be a chance at an incredible new life...or a death sentence? Five college students are about to discover that in this strange new world, the answers are not so simple.

"It starts as an experiment gone too far. A group of brilliant young scientists, working on the outer edge of genetic theory, acting in secret, trigger something hidden in every human's DNA. In the space of one night, they become more than human. For each, the change offers a world of new possibilities. Some will seek fame. Some will seek wealth. All of them will discover danger..."

* Breakdown, by Chuck Dixon and Dave Ross, launching in October.

Here's how Devil's Due describes the book:

"Jeff Carey was the first of a new breed of men–gifted with abilities that could have made him an object of fear. Instead, he became the world's first 'super hero' --loved, admired, rewarded for his heroism with wealth and fame. But then tragedy struck...

"In one horrific instant, it;s all taken away from him--along with the family he loves. Jeff Carey disappears...and in his place appears a figure that inspires not adulation, but terror -- a revenge-driven vigilante who seeks justice at any price..."

* Blade of Kumori, by Ron Marz and Dub, launching in November.

Kumori is a young woman involved in a samurai clan.

* Infantry, by Joe Casey and Clement Sauve, launching in December.
