Story by Jay Faerber, art by Mahmud A. Asrar & Ron Riley, cover by Mahmud A. Asrar & Ron Riley
Why does Father Gideon hate Dynamo 5, and what is his shocking connection to the team? Find out this issue, as he and Synergy launch their attack. This is the story that changes everything!
32 page * FC * $3.50
Our penultimate issue (before the hiatus) marks the first full issue that Mahmud's drawn in awhile, and he really brought his A-game. We had a lot of fun putting this one together, and I can't wait for you guys to see how it all plays out in issue #25.

I've been waiting for Greg Ruck's STUMPTOWN (an Oni Press series about a Portland private eye) ever since it was announced over a year ago. Well, it's finally been solicited and Laura Hudson has a fantastic interview with Greg, in which he talks about the book, and his private eye influences. I'd argue that the Magnum, PI "Did You See The Sunrise" bit does hold up, but that's just my opinion. Of course, it helps to see the whole episode to get the maximum effect. But I digress ... my point is that STUMPTOWN looks to be a great private eye comic, written by a talented writer who really knows his private eyes.

On Sale This Week

Dynamo 5 #23
Story by Jay Faerber, art by Matteo Scalera, Mahmud A. Asrar, & Ron Riley, cover by Mahmud A. Asrar & Ron Riley
The last time Dynamo 5 encountered Whiptail, they barely survived. Now they're faced with a Whiptail epidemic! Meanwhile, Father Gideon's sinister plan kicks into high gear.
32 page * FC * $3.50
Guest artist Matteo Scalera provides the bulk of the art in this issue. He's got a different style than Mahmud, but I think he does a fantastic job on the kids. And this issue has one of our best last-page-shockers ever. Don't miss it!

War of Kings: Warriors #2
Story by Jay Faerber, Pencils by Adriana Melo & Ramon Perez, Cover by Paul Renaud
The royal women take center stage as we spotlight Crystal and Lilandra! When a group of disgruntled Kree launch a series of bombings aimed at the Inhumans Royal Family, Crystal is charged with quelling the violence—but can she bring the guilty to justice without causing civil war? Plus: a flashback story to one of Lilandra's earliest adventures, as the future Empress of the Shi'Ar must face a trial by fire ignited by the Brood! It’s two brand new stories that spotlight key players in the War of Kings!
FC * $3.99
This issue contains two separate stories, one starring Lilandra and one starring Crystal. They were both created as Digital Exclusives for Marvel, to augment the War of Kings crossover. The fact that they're appearing in print is just gravy. I had a blast working on both of these stories, and Adriana Melo and Ramon Perez did excellent work. These stories were edited by Ben Morse, in his first full editing gig. He did a great job, and I'm relieved that he didn't quit comics altogether after editing me.
