Roche Limit: Anomalous
"Our destiny is the stars, and I will lead us there." Twenty years after this promise, billionaire Langford Skaargard's dream of cosmic exploration is no more. Roche Limit, a colony situated on the cusp of a mysterious energy anomaly, is a melting pot of crime and terrible secrets. When Bekkah Hudson goes missing, the search to find her will plunge her sister and a cadre of the colony's underworld figures into an odyssey that reveals a grim future for mankind. Presenting the first part of the sold-out, critically-acclaimed sci-fi trilogy! Collects ROCHE LIMIT #1-5.
"This is a series that demands and deserves to be read by and and all Sci-Fi, comic, and storytelling fans. Truly and genuinely, Roche Limit #5 is a phenomenal work of art." -Bloody Disgusting
"Change your world" is the final admonishment from the explorer at the beginning of this issue. With "Roche Limit", Moreci and Malhotra are taking that character's advice and succeeding at upending expectations of a science fiction story and regaling us with their tale the way they want to tell it."-Multiversity Comics
"It is a comic that is meant to be experienced, not just read."-Comics Bulletin
The bestselling, critically acclaimed sci-fi series returns! It's 75 years after the events that left the Roche Limit colony in flames. When a crew of military and science personnel are sent to the forgotten and desolate planet on a mysterious expedition, they quickly learn its dark secrets - and that their mission is not what they thought it to be. With danger lurking all around, the crew members fight to find a way off the planet and resist the mysterious presence that haunts them all.
"The sci-fi comic you NEED to read" --Nerdist
"Roche Limit: Clandestiny is a smart comic that constantly has the reader questioning and thinking. Not only is it smart, but it is also a fantastic story with excellent writing and plenty of suspense and action." - Adventures in Poor Taste
"Whereas Michael Moreci's first volume had a little bit of a 2001: A Space Odyssey vibe, this second installment - Clandestiny - reminds me a lot more of the Alien franchise, as we meet intergalactic badass Sasha, who walks off a space shuttle crash with nothing more than a blast rifle and a mission to kill. Unlike the urban mystery of the first volume, there's something more visceral here - unlike the city, where danger could be hiding in the shadows, this is a wasteland rife with mysteries that could come out and swallow the entire cast. Artist Kyle Charles brings a scratchier, almost Frank Miller-style vibe to his weathered characters, and I absolutely love the otherworldly purples that colorist Matt Battaglia washes this world in. Like the first volume of Roche Limit, this is a challenging book, but it's well worth jumping in."-Newsarama
"If such a thing as a "thinking man's sci-fi comic" exists this would be it."-Spartantown
"A truly amazing series so far, with it proving why the sci-fi genre is booming within comics."-Snap Pow

How do you kill an idea?
Across the dusty plains of America’s southwest, a deadly storm is brewing. A string of murders portend the sinister designs of an infamous terrorist to bring about the end times. Two FBI agents have heeded the signs, and only their rogue actions—aided by a potentially untrustworthy expatriate with deep ties to the terrorist—can push this darkness back.
Indoctrination explores America’s terrifying underbelly—of death cults and sleeper cells, serial killers and apocalyptic nightmares. Mixing elements of True Detective with Seven, this new series from Michael Moreci (Roche Limit, Burning Fields) and newcomer Matt Battaglia captures the definition of fear in the 21st century.
Coming this June from Z2 Comics.
The team that brought you one of the best-reviewed comics of 2014 returns in 2015 to create a new horror tale unlike any other. A geopolitical drama with monster mythos, Burning Fields is a story for both fans of Zero Dark Thirty and The Thing, as the writers of Roche Limit and Enormous explore the evil that lurks when greed drives one to drill too deep into the unknown.
Dana Atkinson, a dishonorably discharged army investigator, is pulled back to the Middle East when a group of American oil technicians disappear under bizarre circumstances. With the help of an Iraqi investigator, what Dana discovers is unimaginable: a series of unusual incidents at the drill site lead her and her unlikely ally to discover a mythic evil that has been released, one that threatens both the lives of the entire region and the fragile peace that exists.
"There aren't enough superlatives to describe Burning Fields #6. It has become a must-buy since its debut. It has evolved from dramatic political thriller to a supernatural horror story. And it's been a seamless transition because the creative team work in unison. With tense tight plotting and atmospheric visuals, Burning Fields is grade A storytelling. " -Spartantown
"For my money, Burning Fields is the best comic on the shelves right now, hands down. The pacing is top-notch, the artwork is dark, grimy and dripping with atmosphere and the characterisation is absolutely spot-on. Horror, politics and drama all churned together into an utterly intoxicating mixture, this is a creator-owned triumph that deserves to be seen by as many eyes as possible." -Big Comic Page
"Burning Fields has been the surprise standout of the year due to a creative team that's on top of all their respective games. If you've been bemoaning the lack of original comic properties, you shouldn't wait for the trade on this one. Pick up those back issues today, and get to it post haste." - Comic Bastards
It has been two years since the Simian virus wiped out humanity. With only a tenth of the population remaining, the civilization of man is no more! As Caesar sends out a pack of fierce primates to explore the world remaining, Malcolm and his family must venture across country to find salvation for his son and infected wife.
Written by Michael Moreci (Roche Limit) and illustrated by Dan McDaid (Jersey Gods), this six-issue series bridges the 10-year gap between the Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes films, chronicling the fall of humanity and the rise of Caesar’s ape civilization.
"As someone who really loved Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, it's great seeing this creative team is able to duplicate the movie's tone so well. This isn't over-the-top and it instead focuses on giving us a connection to these lead characters and reminds us why we care about them." -Comics Vine
"A must for any hardcore POTA fan."-Horror Talk
"I imagine that if I had the opportunity to meet author Michael Moreci, I’m pretty sure I would bow down in his presence. If not, I would surely thank him for writing one of the most thought-provoking comic book series I’ve ever read! You can tell that each and every issue has been written with purpose and intellect. And, of course, Dan McDaid’s illustrations made this entire series more worth reading with the simple flip of every page." -Fanboy Comics
