IDW's The Infinite Loop has one of the most interesting premises in comics right now --- a time traveling anomaly fixer meets an anomaly in the body of a woman she's instantly attracted to. Cleverly written by Pierrick Colinet and beautifully illustrated by Elsa Charretier, every page offers something interesting and new. Infinite Loop is full of complex, gorgeous storytelling, wrapped around a sweet love story. If you're not reading it, well, you should be. At very least, you can start with this exclusive preview to issue two.

When Geoffrey Thorne, Shannon Eric Denton, Jason Johnson, and Brian Denham got the job of bringing Knight Rider to the page for publisher Lion Forge, the bar for weirdness was set pretty high, and next week, when the paperback collection of the series hits shelves, we all get to see how they did.
Maestro, the despotic senior incarnation of the Hulk from Peter David's classic "Future Imperfect" storyline, is back in one of the Battleworld zones of Secret Wars, and in the pages of the new Future Imperfect series from David and Greg Land. From the looks of the fancy jewelry he's wearing on Rafa Garres' fantastic variant cover for issue #2 --- debuting exclusively on ComicsAlliance --- the other Marvel heroes haven't fared so well in Maestro's domain.
Michael Moreci has been building his name as a stand-out genre comics writer in the past few years, starting with paranormal investigator series Hoax Hunters at Image, co-written with Steve Seeley, and more recently with the sci-fi noir odyssey adventure Roche Limit, with art by Vic Malhotra.
His new series, Transference, sees him unite with artist Ron Salas at Black Mask Studios for a high concept tale of time-travel and counter-terrorism, as an elite special agent transfered into his own past-self must track down an enemy agent to save the future. ComicsAlliance chatted with Moreci about his relationship with comics, working with Ron Salas and Black Mask, and why he's not afraid to court Hollywood through comics. He also shared an exclusive eight-page preview of Transference #1.

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything yesterday, actor Danielle Panabaker confirmed that her Flash TV show character Caitlin Snow will eventually take on her comic book alter ego, the supervillain Killer Frost, stating, "from the beginning I knew that Caitlin Snow becomes Killer Frost. And I can't wait to suit up and duke it out with the boys!" That's good news for fans who want to see more of Caitlin in action, but it might be bad news for those fans who enjoy seeing her on the side of the heroes.
In a timely bit of synergy, Monday's installment of the Flash: Season Zero digital comic also sees Caitlin in action, and this time on the side of the heroes, in a one-shot story by writer and artist Phil Hester that puts Caitlin in the spotlight --- and we have an exclusive preview!
This week sees the release of the first issue of the new Dark Horse horror series Harrow County, from B.P.R.D. artist Tyler Crook and Sixth Gun writer Cullen Bunn. A southern gothic story about a teen girl who discovers her unexpected connection to the things that lurk in the woods, it promises to be fantastically spooky in the way we've come to expect from Dark Horse's industry-leading line of horror comics.
To mark the book's release, Dark Horse has given ComicsAlliance an exclusive glimpse at Crook's artistic process. A series of time-lapse videos show Crook penciling, inking, and hand-watercoloring pages from the fourth issue --- which we don't think gives away any spoilers! The videos also features suitably haunting music composed by Crook himself.
Let me ask you a couple of questions, folks. Do you like uppercuts? Do you like snake people who have trouble figuring out when to stop saying the letter S? Do you like it when there are people who have their own first names tattooed across their chests just in case they forget? If you're like me, the answer to all three of those things is "yes," and that means that I have some very good news for you: You can find all of those wonderful things in the pages of Mortal Kombat X #19, available digitally this Sunday.
The series has been filling in the backstory of the game, and this time around, Shawn Kittelsen, Igor Vitorino, Oclair Albert and Veronica Gandini are revealing the origin of Outworld. Check out a preview!
So you remember a while back when we told you how there was a Miami Vice comic coming out by Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood, and that it was probably going to be one of the weirdest things on the stands? Yeah. Turns out we were right, except that it's way weirder than I think any of us actually expected it to be.
Instead of stylishly solving crimes in pastel blazers, Casey and Mahfood's take on Crocket and Tubbs has found them caught up in a nefarious plot to flood the streets of Miami with a new designer drug that turns people into shambling zombies. It's called Miami Bath Salts, and in next week's issue, Tubbs himself has been hit with a dose and sent spiraling into disco psychosis. And yes: those are all words used within this comic.
