My Four New Books

Come back in time to the dark alleys of Boston in 1965 – into the future and across the stars – into orbit and to the Moon – or back down to Earth and the grim reality of the battle-riddled Afghanistan of today. I'm writer Mike Luoma – join me for four new books: two new issues from my Glow-in-the-Dark Radio Comics and two new shorts in anthologies from Earthbound Comics!

Vatican Assassin #3 is brand-new – Artist Cristian Navarro has been helping me turn my science fiction adventure Vatican Assassin into a graphic novel. In our third installment BC, our assassin for the Pope of the NcC – the New catholic Church – has a dangerous new assignment: neutralize the leader of a religious cult currently holed up with his people on an old, abandoned orbital space station. What could go wrong? Read more at http://vaticanassassin.com

Earthbound Comics has just released Lady Fight #4 which features "Souverain: Liberty and Justice For All" – the final third of my Souverain Afghanistan Trilogy written for Ben Ferrari's vigilante character. Souverain is captured – her followers killed – her sanctuary destroyed... how the hell is she going to get out of this one? Ben's on art duty, Matt Grant handles the letters. The book also features Shots Fired by Buck Weiss and Ruth Garcia and Cat. 5 from Sebastian Piccione and Mike Dreher.

Good Samaritan: Unto Dust #1 features beautiful art by Federico Guillen. Fred told another artist collaborator of mine, Juan Carlos Quattordio, that he wanted to work on a book with an American writer, so Juan Carlos introduced us. Fred has done a fantastic job his first time out, really bringing Father Bill Sullivan – the Good Samaritan – to life! Fall comes to Boston in 1965 as Good Samaritan tries to bring a vampire molester/killer to justice. He's also trying to keep his day job – the new Cardinal seems to have it in for Father Bill!

The artist Meisha is another great find – wait until you see his work on "Alibi Jones: Blind Eye" in the new anthology Spacebound #1 from Earthbound Comics! Alibi is another character leaping from my science fiction novels into visual life on the page. This stand-alone adventure begins when Alibi encounters an old flame at a diplomatic dinner on the human colony of Cat's Eye. Alibi's curiosity gets going when he finds them talking about a new settlement – Poyas – that he's never heard of... just what are Andrea and her partner up to? Spacebound #1 also features Writer and Artist Matt Grant's Mastorism. On sale now at Indy Planet: http://indyplanet.com/store/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=825&products_id=4223
