Archaia Studios Press (ASP) has announced three new titles The Killer, Okko and The Secret History for Comic-Con International in San Diego.

"When my partner, Aki, and I first saw these books, we fell in love with them," said Mark Smylie, publisher at ASP. "We think we found some outstanding books that fans of ASP, new and old alike, will be drawn to."

Following is a rundown:


Bi-monthly, October launch, $3.95. Written by Matz, art by Luc Jacamon. A hardboiled 10-issue noir series chronicling one man's journey through some seriously bad mojo. A professional. A man of few scruples, nerves of steel, and a steady trigger finger. A man whose crimes might be catching up with him. A man on the verge of cracking.


Bi-monthly, December launch, $3.95. Written and art by Hub. A four-issue mini-series launching what will be the first of "Five Cycles." It is Year 1108 in the official calendar of the Pajan Empire during a turbulent time of struggle and warfare between rival clans. Far from the fields of battle, Okko the ronin heads a small group of demon hunters, wandering the realms of the Empire. He is accompanied by Noburo, a mysterious giant who hides his face behind a red mask, and the whimsical monk Noshin, the saké lover with the power to summon and commune with the spirits of nature. When Tikku's sister Little Carp is kidnapped by pirates, the young fisherman enlists the group's help in finding her. But the quest will have a price, and will lead the four heroes much farther afield than they'd ever imagined.


Bi-monthly, February launch, 48 pages, $5.95. Written by Jean-Pierre Pécau, with art by Igor Kordey, Leo Pilipovic, Goran Sudzuka. A story told in 7 chapters, each one more intriguing than the last. Four immortal brothers and sisters, four archons, are entrusted with ivory cards in the dawn of prehistory by a dying shaman. They are told never to use the cards together. These archons, four, leap through time, consumed in an epic struggle to influence and shape the history of Western civilization. From Moses' challenge to the Pharaoh to the origin of the Grail myth; from the Pope's extermination of the Cathars to Nostradamus' travels in Italy; from the Spanish Armada and the Great Fire of London to Napoleon's conquest of Egypt; and finally to the Angel of Mons appearing over the trenches of World War I: a secret occult history of the world told in seven chapters
