THE PILOT SEASON WINNER RETURNS!
Modern society is obsessed with outward beauty. What if there was a way to guarantee you could become more and more beautiful every day? What if it was a sexually transmitted disease? In the world of The Beauty, physical perfection is attainable. The vast majority of the population has taken advantage of it, but Detectives Foster and Vaughn will soon discover it comes at a terrible price.
Writer/artist JEREMY HAUN (Constantine, Batwoman) and co-writer JASON A. HURLEY offer up a startling reflection on the cost of looking good in this procedural science fiction tale.

NEW COMICS COST HOW MUCH?!?:  Here's the price point breakdown for the Week of 08/12/15. This coming week, there are 187 NEW COMICS shipping with ten price points ranging from $1.99 to $9.99. The largest concentration of books, as always, falls into the $3.99 price point with all other price points trailing far off into the back. This week sees a stronger showing of $2.99 books attributable mainly to DC who is still "Holding the Line at $2.99" at least on their new titles. There's also a wider spread of price points indicating that different segments of the market are not adverse to exploring higher cover prices. Remember, no matter what the price point, you save 15% OFF of ALL of this week's new comics all week long only at Alternate Reality!
