As we round out the Halloween season, we're going to end on a note of optimism that will hopefully last the remainder of 2020. First up—Alejandro Jodorowsky, the godfather of psychedelic descents into cosmic humanity, takes his first foray into kids comics with frequent collaborator Georges Bess (The White Lama, Son of the Gun, Anibal 5). The Magical Twins brims with mysticism and action as siblings Prince Aram and Princess Mara embark on an adventure to rescue their father the king from Tartarath, "The Dark Master."
For older audiences, Loving Dead by Stefano Raffaele takes the post-apocalyptic zombie genre and shifts the focus from brains to hearts. Alan may have shuffled off his mortal coil and joined the ranks of deceased, shuffling ghouls, but he regains his will to live after meeting Lynn—another zombie who finds solace in Alan's decomposing arms. The pair journeys through a ravaged wasteland in search of a cure that might restore their humanity in this genre-bending tale of terror and romance.

A thrilling post-apocalyptic zombie love story where the hands of time are just as deadly as the undead menace.
Alan was a simple carpenter until a freak accident ended his life. Now he is among the undead, in a world where 95% of the population are sentient zombies. While on the run from the many - both live and dead - violent factions dotting this post-apocalyptic landscape, Alan finds the girl of his dreams - the decaying, yet beautiful, Lynn. As their bodies rapidly disintegrate, Alan and Lynn make one last, desperate effort to live and love again by hunting down an experimental serum that might just save them.
Stefano Raffaele ("Pandemonium," DC Comics' "Birds of Prey"), employs his signature macabre, yet gorgeous, style in this truly original horror tale: a zombie romance.
