AWA presents a new parable about billionaires, skin cream and revenge.
Second Coming and Not All Robots writer Mark Russell is back at AWA Studios this fall for a new miniseries, Rumpus Room, with artist Ramon Rosanas.
Rumps Room tells the story of a psychotic billionaire who needs a special cream to hide his skin condition. That cream is made from people, so naturally he kidnaps all the people he hates and locks them in his Rumpus Room, letting them vote for his next victim.
“Rumpus Room is a parable for how in American civilization, on some level, we’re set against each other by forces that are too powerful for us to reach,” Russell said. “It parallels the underlying assumption of American life as well: ‘I can’t do anything about the real things that are destroying me, so I’ll take all my rage out against the people who cross me.’ Rumpus Room is about this misguided anger that we all have and how it weaponizes us against each other.”

The creators of ‘Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe’ team up again for a new one-shot from AfterShock Comics.
Cullen Bunn and Dalibor Talajić, who previously worked together on Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, will team up on a new one-shot for AfterShock about tattoos, romance and horror. They’ll be joined by colorist Valentina Briški and letterer Marshall Dillon.
“Eden is the story of Niles, a tattoo artist who is stuck in something of a rut,” Bunn said. “His life is a cycle of work, drunkenness and guilt—lather, rinse, repeat. All that changes for him, though, when a mysterious young woman named Eden walks through the doors of his tattoo shop. She’s looking for something… different… and she finds it with Niles. But Eden is a woman surrounded by deep enigmas… not the least of which is how and why her new tattoos vanish after only a few days. As Niles learns more about Eden, he is driven to fathomless depths of both love and horror.”
