Hey Comic Book Fans,

Welcome as Northwest Comics & Games Presents Comic Book Fast Look for 03/04/2020 (2 Weeks Out). We're taking a quick peek at what's coming soon to comic book store near you.

King of Nowhere #1 (of 5) $3.99 Boom! Studios
Eisner Award-nominated writer W. Maxwell Prince (Ice Cream Man) comes to BOOM! Studios with Eisner-nominated artist Tyler Jenkins (Grass Kings, Black Badge) for an unforgettable thriller that explores the miraculous, the mundane, and all the mysteries in between. * Lovable drunken lowlife Denis awakens on the outskirts of a mysterious village called Nowhere, home to a friendly populace of deformed, mutated, just-left-of-normal citizens-and he has no memory of how he got there. * But just when Denis starts to regain his memories, his past catches up to him… literally. * What at first seems like merely a bad trip quickly heightens into a drama of mistaken identities, small-town conspiracy, and high-stakes fantasy fulfillment.
