Comic Book Releases for the 2nd Week of January

Here at Soda and Telepaths we love our Science Fiction and Horror as much as the next person. However, with hundreds of Comic Books coming out every week and dozens of Kickstarter campaigns it gets really hard to trawl through and find the next best Comic Book Release.

Below is the Cover Art, Synopsis and Talent Information about each Comic Book Release we believe you should check out.

The Story:

A present-day U.S. Marine and his unit disappear in the Bermuda Triangle, only to find themselves in the year 1776. There, they battle to maintain the course of history as they face off against a stranded World War Two era Destroyer turned ruthless pirate ship.

Juxtaposing elements of three distinct time periods – The American Revolution, World War Two, and the present – Blowback highlights clashes of weaponry, culture, technology, and perspective. The result is a high-octane take on historical fiction.
