Digital Firsts: Titles That Are Available Digitally Before the Print Edition’s Release.
Rust Vol. 2: Secrets of the Cell, Part 2:
Writer/artist: Royden Lepp
In this follow-up to the critically acclaimed Rust Vol. 1: Visitor in the Field, the dysfunctional Taylor family continues to rebuild their farm lives after the devastating loss of a recent war, and the appearance of the mysterious jetpack-wearing boy, Jet Jones. Jet’s behavior continues to raise youngest brother Oswald’s suspicion, particularly when the appearance of another robot invader puts them all in danger!
In this part 2 of Volume 2, Oswald might finally be figuring out the secrets behind Jet! Little does he know, he’s about to learn a lot more than he planned, not only about Jet, but about the war as well.
Iron: Or, the War After, Part 4:
Writer/artist: Shane-Michael Vidaurri
It is the aftermath of a long war, in a world of constant winter. An intelligence spy from the Resistance—the rabbit, Hardin—steals secret information from a military base of the Regime. His actions set off a chain of events that reverberates through the ranks of both sides, touching everyone from Pavel the crow to Giles the goat, from the highest-ranking officials to the smallest orphaned child. When the snow finally settles, who will be the true patriot and who the true traitor?
In Part 4 of Iron: Or, the War After, Engel convinces James to take the stand against Pavel. James must decide whether to say the words he knows Engel wants him to say or if he should tell the truth. But what will happen to him, and what has happened to his sister? Is there anyone who can help James, or will Engel finally get his way?
Spera, Vol. 2, Part 2:
Writer: Josh Tierney
Artists: Afu Chan, Giannis Milonogiannis, Kyla Vanderklugt, and Timothy Weaver
Lono’s life as a princess consisted of sitting, reading, and dreaming—until the day Pira, princess of a neighboring kingdom, arrived with news of a waking nightmare! With the help of Pira’s best friend—a fire spirit in the form of a dog named Yonder—the princesses now find themselves in a race against evil. The goal: Spera, a magical realm of which the princesses had only ever heard the tallest tales. The prize: their very lives!
In this next installment of Spera Vol. 2, Pira and Lono have lost the monster but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a normal relaxing day in the city…right? Lono and Pira are going to have a harder time than they thought with monsters showing up behind every corner, not that Pira minds. Will Lono ever get her day of relaxation?
