(W) Claudio Sanchez, Chondra Echert (A) Daniel Bayliss (CA) Jeff Stokely
WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such BOOM! Studios
favorites as KILL AUDIO, THE AMORY WARS and KEY OF Z. Their latest book takes the
superhero trope of "the never-ending battle" and turns it into something you've never seen before.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you want but never thought you'd see. A story of childhood hope and loss as much as it is about the meaning of heroism, and what defines a hero and a villain.

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: The Horse has been the archenemy of The Navigator for years. But The
Horse feels The Navigator's moral compass has been slipping, and even a villain can't let that
happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator's past that he's buried deep in
his subconsciousness and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what
propels someone to make the selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would
take the mantle of a superhero.

PREVIEWS Prevue: Cullen Bunn's The Brothers Dracul From AfterShock

“I'm thrilled to be working on BROTHERS DRACUL, a 15th century horror tale that explores the "true" history of the infamous Vlad the Impaler. With this book, we've brought the entire creative team of UNHOLY GRAIL along. I'm working with artist Mirko Colak, colorist Maria Santaolalla, and letterer Simon Bowland once again. We had so much fun telling a horror story with King Arthur as its central figure, we had to get the gang back together for this story, featuring one of the most shocking icons of horrific history!” -Cullen Bunn
