Fan of alternate history stories? This week's, Godshaper, get's a softcover collection. Godshaper , by Simon Spurrier and Jonas Goonface, introduces a world where the laws of physics stopped working in 1958, and everyone woke up one day with their own personal companion god.
BOOM! Studios is excited to announce Abbott, a new, original comic book series launching in this week from Hugo Award-nominated writer Saladin Ahmed (lack Bolt) and artist Sami Kivelä (Beautiful Canvas) about a female journalist of color in 1970s Detroit named Elena Abbott who investigates a series of grisly crimes the police have ignored, crimes she recognizes to be the work of a dark magical force, the same force that murdered her husband 10 years ago.
