Drive Thru Comics: Atlas, Katharsis & More

Drive Thru Comics have released their latest comics available for download this week. They also have a spotlight on publisher Visionary Comics:

Publisher Focus: Visionary

Based in Annapolis, Maryland, Visionary first opened in 2006 as the world’s first, dedicated comic teaching studio, operating as a packaging and production house working with new talent to develop properties into actual projects. They recruited well-known and established creators in many fields to act as mentors and teachers.

Within 3 years, Visionary had successfully helped launch the careers of a number of creators into the comic publishing industry and also debuted their first completed projects into the print market. Their creators went on to work for such companies as Image, Top Cow, Boom Studios, Dynamite, Archaia, and in supporting roles even with DC Comics. Print projects debuted with such publishers as Markosia, eigoManga and Bluewater.

By 2009 the studio expanded and launched themselves as the first banner for creator owned content as a digital publisher. They began publishing a line of digital comics to multiple venues, including one-shots, mini-series, books previously in print and all new content. The creators on these titles ranged from early to current work of top names in the industry, as well as the first published work of new creators just making their mark…

In June of 2011 Visionary announced its first license, the Deadlands role-playing game from Pinnacle Entertainment. It published a series of one-shots through Image Comics, featuring a who’s who list of top talent from the horror-western genre of comics. The comics were met with critical success and hailed as the “All-Star Westerns” of the comics industry…

Other Featured Titles

Katharsis #1
by Americanime Productions

The Blitzkrieg is Coming.


In the Fall of 1943 the German Wehrmacht faced a decision that would determine the course of the war, and the future of the world. Rather than pursue a losing battle into the horrid Russian winter, they instead halted to reconsolidate, and build upon their power. The secret weapon littered through their propaganda, the prophesy which would bring the Reich to ultimate victory, began development. The eugenics program joined with the Volk, the occultist shadow society of the SS. ‘Dark Science’ was spawned, and their weapon came into being, but its power could not be controlled. There were whispers of cover-ups, reports filed, but a blind eye was turned, until it happened…

Eeek! #3
by Asylum Press

This retro-style anthology of all-new horror tales is guaranteed to give you the eeries and the creepies! Taking a pinch of black humour from EC comics and mixing it with the art stylings of House of Mystery and Warren comics, EEEK! blends a heady broth that hits you like a burning incense stick to the retina. Jason Paulos delivers the goods with tales of revenge, zombies, vampires, ghouls and monsters. Each tale drawn in a different style reminiscent of the B&W horror mags of the 70’s and 80’s. In ‘Witness to Evil’ Mormon demon hunters converge on a dark little house with a terrible secret. In ‘East Prey’ a helpless girl, lost in the wilderness … but is she all that she seems? Nest up: ‘What’s down in the Basement Horace Greely?’–If you hate real estate agents then you’ll love this tale of greed and bad kharma. We go back to the 60’s for ‘Head Trip’–This psychedelic little tale begins in a bizarre curio shop … and ends in a watery grave.
