51 follows 51-foot-tall queen of all media, radio DJ Samantha Stanton, who originated in Remote. Alphabet City focuses on the Fosters, the family that headlined 2015’s Home, as they settle into a New York City whose immigrants aren’t just international – they’re intergalactic. Z-Mart follows the superpowered employees of George’s Market, who were introduced in 2015’s Dedication.
A fourth series, Behold, is an all-new superhero tale that examines who defines what constitutes crime and the drawbacks of superpowers. The first issue of all four series will be on shelves December 14, 2016. MSRP for each is $2.50.
