FIRST LOOK: SUGARSHOCK

Sugarshock will arrive in stores on Oct. 21 from Dark Horse Comics. The issue is written by Joss Whedon, with art and cover by Fabio Moon.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"Originally presented in the first online issues of MySpace Dark Horse Presents , for which it won the Eisner Award for Best Web Comic, Sugarshock tells the story of a rock band led by charismatic but crazy Dandelion Naizen, a hyperactive singer/songwriter possessed of a mean hatred of Vikings (donšt ask) and a mission for a secret government agency that may only exist in her head. But when her band, which includes a robot bass player, is enlisted in an intergalactic battle of the bands -- emphasis on battle -- Dandelion gets to prove herself as both singer and soldier.

"This is Joss Whedon at his funniest and most hyperactive, with writing that bursts off the page in a way seldom seen in comics. Multiple Eisner Award winner Fabio Moon delivers the outrageous story with equal energy, as well as providing a fourteen-page look at his process, with never-before-seen character designs, page layouts, and promotional images."

Sugarshock will be 40 pages and will cost $3.50.

Here's how Dark Horse describes the issue:

"Thirty-four years after a massive nuclear war, New York City is submerged in caustic water and dominated by brutal gangs who live in the city's battered skyscrapers. Zero usually works in this melted metropolis as a 'trash man,' hunting down renegade gang members, but he embarks on a strange mission for an overseas ruler. While America is scorched by nuclear fires and far from recovering, Africa is a mythical land of civilization and safety -- but in order to get to this faraway paradise, Zero needs to find a mysterious metal briefcase. He's made himself the target of just about every powerful gangster in town, but Zero is determined and driven by ghosts from his past. With a little help from Stark, his young, unwanted partner, he just might pull it off -- and settle some old scores while he's at it!"

Zero Killer #6 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.99.
