On 3/16, writer/artist Ibrahim Moustafa, colorist Brad Simpson, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou unleash Count, a sci-fi reimagining of The Count of Monte Cristo. Alexander Dumas' 1844 classic unfurled the tale of a merchant—Edmond Dantès—who's wrongfully imprisoned, escapes, and amasses a fortune to enact methodical revenge. Moustafa injects that premise with lumbering robots, a fascist dystopia, and myriad (more) sword fights. You don't have to wait to get a taste of the 136-page graphic novel—check out the trailer below. Retailers: FOC for Count is 2/22, Diamond code JAN211389.
