Here is the BOOM! Studios titles in stores this week (01/30/08).
Dick has fallen to the virus. Chicago lies in wreckage and flames. Has this alien Dominion succeeded in conquering the earth? The conclusion of this powerful new series!
NORTH WIND #1 (SECOND PRINTING)
The future: mankind has suffered a disaster. Where there was once a lush, thriving planet, there is now only glaciers and snow. The cities that still stand are buried under the surface in caves of ice. Skinrunners trade valuable pelts for rations, warmth and survival. Into this violent, damaged world, a hero will rise… in the vein of Mad Max and The Road Warrior and for fans of Antony Johnston’s Wasteland.
NORTH WIND #3
From the creator of the ABC TV show Traveler! An Ice Age Mad Max that’s a blockbuster action story in widescreen style! Civilization itself is at risk as a new hero is born into a futuristic, barbaric time period. A tyrant has risen, and his reign will clash with the arrival of The North Wind!

"I’ve said it before and I will emphatically state again that this comic scares the hell out of me. It never ceases to surprise me how effortlessly this story and its artwork and characters draw me in (often somewhat against my will). This series offers a plot that’s simply the train wreck I can’t look away from." – Indy Comic Review
"Wow, this book is just flying out. Ever since Mark Waid joined BOOM, the production problems that they had have disappeared and the company has been humming along on all cylinders and has had a couple of sell out titles. So far a very good post apocalyptic story and wonderful art by Alex Cal who is slated to do some Spider-Man work soon." – Comics And…
"The variety of artists keep your eyes entertained… Recommended!" – The Ponderings Of A Media Junkie
"To tell you the truth, North Wind is as good as just about anything that DCâ€™s Vertigo line puts out on a monthly basis. This story is involving and the art is spectacular. Iâ€™m on board for the remainder of the mini and I really hope that there will be more stories from this frozen future world." – Comic Addiction
COVER GIRL “…what makes Cover Girl so likeable – the gratuitous action, stupid!” – Entertainment Weekly
"…what makes Cover Girl so likeable — the gratuitous action, stupid! The satire hits its stride when it catches up to Santolouco’s crisp, propulsive artwork, concocting a gooey fondue of indefatigable plot and goofy one-liners. B+" – Entertainment Weekly
"Created by Kody Chamberlain and written by John Rozum, this book’s ideas and it’s execution are fascinating, even more so with the revelation of the Foundation’s background. Fantastic reading for espionage fans." – Rack Raids
