Aspen's hardest hitting series, DELLEC returns for its long-awaited second volume! Dellec's previous battle against a higher power and the forces of evil led to a tragic ending—as he sacrificed his own life in a struggle with the Demi-God, Tera! But, a new underground resistance forged by Father Strayer is in the works, and with a shocking new leader to combat Terra and her minions, Dellec's cause is ever growing. However, a new evil has emerged...one that could spell doom for not just the innocent—but every living soul! From the minds of creators Frank Mastromauro (Shrugged, Awaken Skies) and Vince Hernandez (Michael Turner's Fathom: Kiani, Charismagic), along with art by Andre Risso, Michael Ste Maria and John Starr, this newest volume of DELLEC is gonna redefine your definition of the human spirit!
Some questions, you may not want to know the answers to. Journalist Will Harden is well equipped for most situations, but nothing can prepare him for what's about to come. Relocating from the big city to a small mountain town with his wife, everything is turned upside-down the moment she goes missing. Are the rumors of alien abductions true or did something far worse happen to his wife? No matter the cause, Harden will not stop until he uncovers the truth, or dies trying. Written and created by Frank Mastromauro, featuring artwork by the talented newcomer Marco Lorenzana, OVERTAKEN is going to take your breath away and leave you gasping for more!
SOMETIMES, EVIL SHOULD BE AFRAID. His name is DELLEC, and it all starts right here! One man amidst a blur of immorality, but his mission is clear-destroy the forces of evil wherever they may flourish, even if it means taking on the very being that created mankind itself! The action-packed first issue takes off full throttle, as DELLEC, on a quest for vengeance and redemption, jumps headfirst into the battle of a lifetime-and his chances for survival don't look good! However, DELLEC is not one to back down from a fight, even if his foe is the bloodcurdling Bludgeoner! A completely brand new maxi-series brought to you by Aspen's own Frank Mastromauro, Vince Hernandez and Micah Gunnell, along with inker Rob Stull and colorist Matt Hollingsworth, DELLEC is unlike anything Aspen has ever done before. This inventive new title is set to raise the bar on cinematic storytelling, while keeping you on the edge of your seat every hair-raising moment.
Volume three of Aspen's hit series' long-awaited return is finally here! Rejoin high school teenager Theodore Langstrom along with Ange and Dev, his internal allies guiding his conscience, as he attempts to adapt to life following the events of Shrugged Volumes One and Two! After saving the emotional spectrum realm of Perspecta and everyone he holds dear in the process, Theo discovers that the most fearsome moment of all still awaits him-High School Graduation! But, like all things in his life, adolescence is not the only challenge Theo will face along the way, as he has yet to still truly experience the horrors of several emotions, including entering adulthood!
