The Last Days Of American Crime
From Rick Remender, the critically acclaimed writer of “Punisher” and “Fear Agent.”
In the not-too-distant future, as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards.
Enter Graham Bricke, a career criminal never quite able to hit the big score. In a grand scheme, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live…and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the heist of the century into the last crime in American history.

From the innovative minds of Steve Pugh and Warren Ellis…
In the near future, the living and the dead share the same space. Most of the “Blue Lights” are harmless, witless drones, as lost in death as they were in life. Some want revenge. Some want power. Some even want company to join them in the ranks of the departed.
Enter Alice Hotwire, Detective Exorcist. She’s the best there is at keeping the peace on the Blue Light beat and her fellow officers hate her for it. It’s a job she doesn’t want, in a world she doesn’t understand. But, when a break-in at the Maximum Security Necropolis sets off a surge of violent, brutal hauntings, Alice Hotwire knows she’s the only one that can pull the city from the brink of chaos.
“El Apocalipsis” is a Spanish language version of the book of Revelation from the Bible.
A situational drama revolving around a professional wrestling promotion in 1979 Kansas City. The Mad Men of Professional Wrestling!
