All of Alterna Comics’ announcements at NYCC

While New York Comic Con has become more focused on movie news and certain companies promoting themselves as a “lifestyle brand”, there are the select few companies who still attend NYCC to celebrate and promote actual comic books.

One such company is indie publisher Alterna Comics, who made several announcements during the NYCC festivities. Not only did they confirm a follow-up to their breakout hit series Blood Realm, but several new titles for 2019 and beyond were also revealed. Some of the details are a bit thin, but it looks as though Alterna has a diverse set of titles to look forward to over the next 18 months or so. Check out the teaser images below to see what Alterna Comics has waiting in their wings.
