Know Your Station is almost here!

Are you ready to head into the void with the 1%? KNOW YOUR STATION, the comic I co-created with the unrivaled Liana Kangas, is coming out everywhere books are sold on September 26th!

But there’s a twist—local comic shops got their copies a week early, so if you head to your Local Comic Shop, you can pick up your copy of the collected issues right now.

If you don’t have a LCS, preorder your copy to get it delivered to your home next week!

Meanwhile, check out these character dossiers and get to know some of the folks who live—and die—aboard the First Resort, a space station dedicated to the comfort of the upper class.

I’m Reading: Deadpool & Cable by Fabian Nicieza, Patrick Zircher, Mark Brooks, and Shane Law

Wade Wilson is Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth and a healing factor that just won't quit! Nathan Summers is Cable, the mutant from the future who plans to save us all—whether we want him to or not! And now this disparate duo has just become Marvel's oddest couple—because they're stuck with one another! Can two grown men armed to the teeth with high-tech weaponry coexist without driving each other crazy?! It's action, adventure, time travel, dimension-hopping, black humor, black ops, Bea Arthur, chimichangas—yes, that whole thing started here—and lots of gunfire as two of Marvel's fan-favorite antiheroes take on each other and everyone else! Guest-starring the X-Men, Spider-Man, Captain America, the Fantastic Four… and the Great Lakes Avengers!

When she was alive, she was an alcohol-soaked train wreck. Now that she's dead… well, same, but she uses her supernatural powers to help folks out who've recently arrived in Hell and need to learn the ropes. Imagine if the magazine Hollywood Insider was a person. Now imagine that person is a dead alcoholic. That's Wine Ghost! She is fashion. She is drama. She insists that wine counts as a fruit. And she may be her newly dead friend's only hope of finding inner peace!
