Alan Robert’s Killogy #1 (of 4) - Also available digitally!
Click here for a preview!

Alan Robert (w & a & c x3)
What do you get when you throw three murderers into one prison cell together? Well, when those characters happen to be based on the likenesses of celebrities Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (formerly of The Ramones) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), you can bet that the outcome will be anything but ordinary. From the creator of IDW’s hit series Crawl to Me (now in development to become a feature film), comes Alan Robert’s Killogy, an off-the-wall, genre-busting mash-up of crime, dark comedy, and horror. Written and illustrated by Alan Robert, the respected musician from the hard-rock group Life of Agony.

James Vance (w) • Alex Maleev (a) • Kyle Hotz (c)
In the midst of a rural land-rights struggle, Iris Shaw is a federal conservation officer who is murdered in a bombing by a rag-tag band of right-wing activists. Little do her killers know that Iris wasn't their only victim, and now, with the help of the Crow, Iris must exact vengeance for her own death, and that of her unborn baby. Raised from her grave and armed with cold-blooded hatred and a few deadly weapons, Iris hunts down her killers one by one. But if exacting ultimate pain is the goal, when does vengeance cross the line to brutality? And what is the price of the soul?
