Alterna Comics has released a full slate of upcoming titles from this October, some new faces and some old, something for everyone from New England’s biggest comic company!
The New Hampshire based company revealed their upcoming schedule recently, featuring some exciting new titles and some familiar faces. ( I’m personally stoked for the Doppelganger TPB!) I can honestly say I will likely be getting most or all of these, with a base price of 1.50 and newsprint interiors Alterna is a perfect alternative for fans tired of 6-dollar-a-book events with 25 tie-ins.
