What happens when a time machine device becomes weaponized? In Action Lab’s Ghost Town, Volume One, this concept is tackled with full force. Destruction, mayhem, survival, and a whole lot of shocking moments await!
After a terrorist organization known as The American Reclamation Front steals a time travel device, the group uses the machine to place bombs days ahead in the future. When the president refuses to meet their demands, the bombs detonate in Las Vegas and Washington D.C., killing 1.5 million people and thrusting the United States into a post-apocalyptic landscape.

If you’ve ever wanted to take a peek into a killer’s mind, then Ryan K. Lindsay (best known for Ghost Town) has created a lens that will let you do just that in Headspace #1 from MonkeyBrain Comics.
Much like a fever dream, the debut issue of this digital serial introduces the reader to two landscapes””one in our real world, the other inside the head of murderer Max Johnston. What we discover in each realm is quite a bit more than even your typical criminal psychologist is trained to handle.
In Max’s mind is an island called Carpenter Cove. A morphed memory from his childhood, Carpenter Cove has somehow become a very real prison for its residents. Led by Sheriff Shane Garratty, those imprisoned are reclaiming their own memories of life before the island and are acting out in desperation to try and leave it.
Everyone who reads superhero books will tell you that they’re ripe for analysis and any one of those folks will tell you that Marvel Comics Daredevil has, for decades, been one of the richest titles and characters to breakdown – even though he isn’t always on our radar [sorry].
In the newest Sequart collection of essays, The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil dives into The Man Without Fears’ love life, family, and relationship with fellow Marvel heroes. Along with pieces on many of the title’s seminal runs and the love-it-or-hate-it Ben Affleck film, it’s a book any fan of the series or character or comic will want to read.
Ryan K. Lindsayis the man responsible for this book you never knew you needed. Lindsay chatted with us about editing the book, the joys of scrutinizing his favorite titles, and his love for the character himself.
