The comic book industry is fueled by preorders ... if a comic shop owner doesn't know if a book will sell they are  less likely to order it. With books like Superman and Spider-Man ... the retailer can take a chance and order extra copies of those books because there is always an audience for them. However with indie-comics it's harder, the average retailer might not have the budget to take a chance on a title that they have never heard of or at the very least are not familiar with. This is why preorders are so important, if you are interested in getting a copy of Decisions: Faces of the Stranger, you can't count on finding a copy on the shelves at your favorite comic shop when it is released ... unless you tell your retailer about it, now. It's an easy enough process ... next time you are at your local comic shop let the  person behind the counter know that you want a copy of Decisions. The more information you give your retailer the better - let them know it is published by Cosmic Times and can be found on page 329 of the July 2017 Previews catalog, you can even let them know what the order code is - JUL171649 ... all helpful information. We have actually made the whole process even easier with our handy “order form” ... just click the image of the form, that will open a printable PDF. Fill it out and bring it to your retailer, they will know what to do with it after that. Then come September you will find yourself in possession of a copy of Decisions: Faces of the Stranger. It’s that easy … you’ll get a great comic plus you will be supporting an indy publisher.

The core creative team at Cosmic Times are coming together to bring an important tale to market!  (Cosmic Times Publisher) Martin T Pierro and (Cosmic Times Creative Director) Zach Bassett have combined their writing styles to bring to life this all too real story.  Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger follows Jack,  a young man standing at a crossroad. He is wrestling with his place in the world trying to come to terms with his own sexuality and future. The questions he has are tied to his past. This is a past that he has tried hard to forget but has never moved beyond but now the time has come for him to face the truth of what actually happened.

In Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger, the main character is forced to face the reality of his situation by two etherial “Guides”, Jack will have to make the ultimate decision to move forward or to stay locked in a trap of his own making. It’s the writers hope that this special one shot can shed light on a very serious life issue.  The comic medium lends itself to storytelling in a very  different way.  It presents those sometimes difficult issues through a lens that can provide a unique perspective.  

Decisions: The Faces of the Stranger  is illustrated by Jeramy Hobbs (What I.F. from Cosmic Times). Hobbs’ detailed art brings life to each character and provides a realistic, sometimes gritty depiction of what they are going through. The cover art is by industry favorite Jeff Dekal.  Jeff is best known for his recent work with Marvel on such titles as Iron Fist, Hulk, Kingpin and The Uncanny Inhumans.

“A good story makes you think.  A great story changes your life.”
