"Potently evocative, impeccably unique and fabulously cool, The Silent Invasion
 is a boldly imagined and cunningly crafted adventure long-overdue for a modern revival:
an unforgettable gateway to an eerily familiar yet comfortably exotic era of innocent joy and
a million "top secrets" which no fan of fantastic thriller fiction should ignore." -NOW READ THIS


Red Shadows
Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock
Introduction by Max Allan Collins
In this era of fake news and 'deep state' this couldn't be more timely! The paranoid cult-classic science fiction mystery of the early days of indie comics returns! The series will begin with two books reprinting the original volumes, followed by the never before collected third album and concluding with an all-new fourth book of this epic series of conspiracy and paranoia. Set against the background of a nightmarish 1950s crawling with communist spies, corrupt FBI agents, McCarthyites, Stalinists, cold warriors, flying saucers, mysterious government organizations, The Silent Invasion weaves a byzantine tale of mystery and deceit as a bewildered investigative reporter Matt Sinkage pursues the truth behind an apparent alien invasion of earth that points to involvement at the highest levels of American government officials.
"This reissue of a cult classic sci-fi mystery that touches upon deep state conspiracies and fake news remains incredibly relevant."

"Riveting to the last page and highly recommended!"  -Midwest Book Review
"Like the greatest episodes of "The Twilight Zone," "The Silent Invasion" mashes together the earthbound fears of a particular time with a threat from the outside to make an argument about the world around us."

The Great Fear
Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock
The paranoia and conspiracy theories continue! Beleaguered reporter Matt Sinkage's quest to discover the truth behind an apparent, government-backed alien invasion of earth leads him to investigate a quasi-religious UFO cult based in an idyllic small American community. Then the sudden death of a prominent politician paves the way for Senator Harrison Callahan to seek the Presidency of the United States. But Sinkage, believing that Callahan is an alien pawn, is determined to stop him at all costs.
"I enjoyed 'Red Shadows' and I liked 'The Great Fear', too. I look forward to part three, 'The Silent Invasion: Abductions!' Intelligent, original indie comics like this make a nice change of pace from the ubiquitous super-heroes taking over the cinema."
-SF Crows Nest
"More relevant than ever."
