The following is solicit text from Valiant:
In the Soviet-controlled world of the Stalinverse, there is a place where liberty is sentenced to die: Gulag 396. A maximum-security prison where the only escape is through death, the gulag is the final stop for all enemies and detractors of the world’s oppressive authority. But when public enemy Obadiah Archer is admitted as the latest inmate, could his gospel of goodwill and optimism be the spark that ignites a new faith in the prison’s population, which includes the immortal undesirable known as Aram Addi-Padda?

The following is solicit text from BOOM Studios:
Punk isn’t dead, but Coady is.
Coady, Criss, and Corey are sisters and bandmates in the band The Creepies. After a van accident leaves Corey badly scarred and Criss in a wheelchair, they’re getting back into the punk scene!
But they still need to contend with the challenges of staying true to their punk ideals, while also dealing with the media attention they’ve attracted, as well as the tension surrounding the fact that Coady escaped the accident seemingly unscathed.
Now on tour, they’re fighting their way through the (sometimes literal) battle of the bands, earning enamel pins, and heading for the gig of their lives…so long as no one realizes that Coady is actually a ghost.
From award-winning comics creator Liz Prince ("Tomboy," "Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed?") and artist Amanda Kirk.
