BOOM! STUDIOS FOR AUGUST

NECRONOMICON #1

By William Messner-Loebs and Andrew Ritchie.

In last month's Cthulhu Tales #5, Mark Waid seeded clues and hints to the scope of Boom!'s new "horrorverse." Now that the Necronomicon has been opened, writer William Messner-Loebs brings you the next chapter as he reveals the origins of the forbidden book of legend -- and how its catastrophic influence will soon spread over the Boom! line of titles! Cover by J.K. Woodward.

24 pages, $3.99.

CHALLENGER DEEP #2

By Andrew Cosby and Marcelo Mueller.

Take a deep breath. Hold it. Now, imagine you're on a -- I didn't say breathe! -- on a sunken submarine at the bottom of the ocean, teetering on enough methane ice to blow the world in half if you make the slightest wrong move. And five world governments are sending underwater commandoes your way right this second!

24 pages, $3.99.

HIGH ROLLERS #3

By Gary Phillips and Sergio Carrera.

Award-winning mystery novelist Gary Phillips came to BOOM! with the best idea they'd heard yet. The Sopranos was about the soap opera of upper-class mob life. What do you get, Gary asked, when you transplant that tension to the African-American gangs of inner-city L.A.? Answer -- you get the story of CQ, a young man who thought the mob was his family, until it turned on him, forcing him to fight against California's crime families to stay alive! A potent mix of American Gangster and The Wire for fans of Brubaker's Criminal!

24 pages, $3.99.

STATION #3

By Johanna Stokes and Leno Jefferson.

The ultimate locked-room murder has been committed. Someone's been killed aboard the international space-station two hundred and twenty miles above the Earth. All six astronauts suspect one another, and paranoia runs high as more victims fall while trying to expose the killer. If he's not brought to justice -- he can bring about the end of the world!

24 pages, $3.99.

SCREAM QUEEN #4

By Brendan Hay and Nate Watson.

Boom!'s first horror-romance continues! Wrighty, the Shambling Terror of Rumson, continues to try to win the heart of high-schooler Molly by smiting her enemies. Oh, if only Wrighty's idea of "exacting justice" didn't involve hot tar...

24 pages, $3.99.

ENIGMA CIPHER TP

Casey Williams and her fellow grad students have a rather interesting homework assignment: decrypt a recently discovered Nazi code left over from World War II. But as they begin their work, those connected with it are found dead.

In the midst of the battle, the fate of war could tip in the Imperial forces' favor -- or tip towards betrayal and annihilation! Beginning here: a new Warhammer 40,000 saga crafted by Black Library novelist Graham McNeill! Features two alternate covers, both by artist Tony Parker.

By Dan Abnett, Ian Edginton and Daniel Lapham.
