THE KILLING HORIZON Coming in Summer 2020


THE KILLING HORIZON Coming in Summer 2020
HOT OFF THE WICKED + THE DIVINE FINALE, JAMIE McKELVIE SET TO LAUNCH THE KILLING HORIZON FROM IMAGE COMICS THIS SUMMER

PORTLAND, Ore. 10/10/2019 — THE KILLING HORIZON is the explosive new sci-fi vision from Jamie THE KILLING HORIZON Coming in Summer 2020McKelvie, co-creator of the bestselling, award-winning THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, and Eisner Award winning colorist Matthew Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, PAPER GIRLS), launching from Image Comics in Summer 2020.

The project sees McKelvie return to writing for the first time in a decade, after establishing himself as both a popular artist of comics such as YOUNG AVENGERS and designer of iconic superheroes including Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Loki.

THE KILLING HORIZON takes place in the post-post-apocalyptic future. Far from Earth, a specialist in studying dead alien societies is embedded with a military unit to excavate a new find. She’s done it before. It’s good work and it’s safe. She thinks it’s just another job.

She’s wrong.

Lost and alone, deep beneath the warped, skeletal spires of the millennia-dead city, she finds something powerful. Something unlike anything any human has ever known. Something that needs her to take it on a journey no living being has ever taken. Something that will make her a target for every side fighting a deadly war. It calls to her.

She answers.

In an exclusive interview with io9 at New York Comic Con, McKelvie, already known for pushing the limits of comic book storytelling, talked about what makes this project so exciting: “The canvas becomes vast and that’s more than a little bit scary for me. Humans are humans, cars are cars, you can generally recognize that a tree is a tree. Those boundaries vanish when you’re doing a story like this. With such a drastic change of setting, storytelling possibilities expand out in all sorts of different directions. There’s a sequence I’m really excited about drawing that arose from a quandary: how do I approach this moment/image on the page? The story possibilities spill out into the “storytelling” possibilities and that’s got me buzzing.”

Joining the established partnership of McKelvie and Wilson are letterer Aditya Bidikar (THE WHITE TREES, LITTLE BIRD, designer Cecile Richard and editor Katie West.

THE KILLING HORIZON is a space opera comic inspired by the works of Iain Banks, Ann Leckie, Michael Moorcock, and Yoon Ha Lee and is perfect for fans of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s  Descender, Jason Aaron, Dennis Hallum, and Stephen Green’s  Sea of Stars, and Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ Saga.

Industry tastemakers rave about the goth-and-grit aesthetic for the new Image Comics title

COFFIN BOUND Launches in August

PORTLAND, Ore. 07/13/2019 — Image Comics forthcoming ongoing comic book series Coffin Bound by Dan Watters (Sandman Universe: Lucifer) and artist Dani (2000AD, Girl with No Name) with colorist Brad Simpson (JESUSFREAK, MCMLXXV), letterer Aditya Bidikar, and designer Emma Price, set to launch this August.

Cars! Guns! Entropy! Coffin Bound follows Izzy Tyburn, who is chased by an unstoppable killer and has decided that if the world won’t have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She’s re-treading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash, and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way. Ride shotgun on an unforgettable road trip through blood-splattered, grindhouse action best described as Bitch Planet and Mad Max: Fury Road set in the dark, twisted fantasy world of Sandman.

Coffin Bound #2 (Diamond Code JUL190117) hits stores on Wednesday, September 11. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, August 19.

Select praise for Coffin Bound:

"It's a gleeful of literary grindhouse comic that brings to mind Milligan's Arthouse Pulp and notes of Pretty Deadly. Out in August. Pre-order now." —Kieron Gillen

"Dani is quite a discovery: the work is very inventive and actually very careful but the line is alive and organic—the ink just spills down and branches into the right places. And the language style Watters launches here is just wonderful—I summon Milch because it's eccentric and neo-antique like his DEADWOOD speech, rippling with character and drunken with its own pleasure... Coffin Bound is a damned joy." —Warren Ellis

"A Lynchian crime chase desert noir fever dream with its own messed up internal logic. Fun." —Rob Williams

"An acid drenched road trip, seeping violence and weirdness of the best kind. Definitely one to check out." —Ollie Masters

"Gorgeous and odd and very much its own unique monster. I am jealous at its filthy strangeness." —Ivan Brandon

"A gore-splattered—but poetic—road trip with one of the strangest stripper scenes in comics." —John Harris Dunning

"Dreamlike, mythic, relentless and strange." —Kurt Busiek

"Excellent. Like finding a weird Alex Cox meets Jodorowsky road movie you didn't know existed. Literate, full of ideas & complimented by Dani's Guéra meets Pope-ish art." —Iain Laurie

"Pure Doom. Watters spins a fantastic Kerouac-ian fever dream with Dani dropping some story chops, solid gesture and moody blacks. It's a great hook that will take you Under. Coffin Bound Rules!" —Andy Belanger 

"Your lessons of life delivered at the end of a muzzle by a choir of grindhouse philosophers laced with the wisdom of dead birds. I can hardly think of another story so fully infused with Dan Watters and Dani aesthetic." —Ram V

"Coffin Bound is a distillate of madness. A slice of apocalyptic dreamtime cut with engine smoke, acid nihilism and dirty juju. This is some top-class necrofuel, my friends, and you need it in your brain-tank pronto." —Si Spurrier

"Coffin Bound is a comic with a strong pulse that bleeds all over your hands while reading. You should give it a read." —Declan Shalvey

ACTION-PACKED STORY & NIGHTMARISH CHARACTERS COLLIDE IN NEW SERIES COFFIN BOUND

PORTLAND, OR 04/17/2019 — Dan Watters (Sandman Universe: Lucifer, Limbo) teams with artist Dani COFFIN BOUND Coming in August from Dan Watters and Dani(2000AD, Girl with No Name) for an all-new action series full of grindhouse nightmares and high-octane chills in Coffin Bound. The ongoing series will launch from Image Comics this August.

Chased by an unstoppable killer, Izzy Tyburn has decided that if the world won’t have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She’s retreading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash… and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way.

"This is a book all about the inevitability of death, and the choice each of us faces between coming to terms with it, or trying to deny it,” said Watters. “This is a book drawn beautifully by Dani, with Brad Simpsons' filthy bright colors. This is a book about cars, guns, and sex—and how each of those things does little to stave off the bottomless void waiting just beyond the veil of our known existence. What was the question again?"

Readers won’t want to miss joining in on this road trip through a blood-splattered life.

PARADISO, Vol. 1: Essential Singularity Available in May


PARADISO, Vol. 1: Essential Singularity Available in May
GET READY FOR A REAL TRIP: PARADISO, VOL. 1 HITS STORES THIS MAY
Collecting issues #1-4

PORTLAND, OR, 03/12/2018 — Writer Ram V (Grafity’s Wall, Black Mumba), artist Dev Pramanik (Nightbloom, Black Mumba), colorist Dearbhla Kelly (James Bond: Moneypenny), and letterer Aditya Bidikar (MOTOR CRUSH, Black Mumba) will release PARADISO, VOL. 1: ESSENTIAL SINGULARITY, collecting the first four issues of the psychedelic sci-fi series, this May from Image Comics.

Centuries ago, civilization collapsed in a single cataclysmic event known as The Midnight. Now, it seems humanity is only able to thrive in one place: a living, breathing city called Paradiso. And it seems it’s drawn Jack Kryznan, a man haunted by fragments of old memories—and in possession of a mysterious device of awesome power—to its gates.

PARADISO, VOL. 1: ESSENTIAL SINGULARITY (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0660-8, Diamond code: FEB180586) hits comic book stores Wednesday, May 16th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailer is Monday, March 12th.

Fans can find a special Book Market Edition cover of PARADISO, VOL. 1: ESSENTIAL SINGULARITY (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0883-1) in bookstores on Tuesday, May 22nd. It can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Indigo, and Books-A-Million.

Note: Also available at Book Depository.

Select praise for PARADISO:

“The sort of comic where every panel contains a world. Savour it.” —Kieron Gillen
(THE WICKED + THE DIVINE)

“This book works on so many levels.” —Multiversity Comics

“Dev, Dearbhla, Alex, and Aditya are an impressively harmonious art team—inks,
colors, and letters merge and move in beguiling unison to create a captivating singular
vision. Imagery from PARADISO has been bouncing around my head for days, weeks,
months after reading. Unique, exciting work by all.” —Tradd Moore (LUTHER
STRODE, Venom, Ghost Rider)

“PARADISO is an ambitious, tense and textural body of work. Ram, Pramanik, Kelly,
and Bidkar have created a tangible world; you can feel the rusty walls, taste the dusty
air, kick the dirt beneath your feet. Welcome to Paradiso.” —Declan Shalvey
(INJECTION, SAVAGE TOWN)

“This is a funky bit of sci-fi with plenty of secrets to unfurl in the coming chapters
—definitely worth checking out.” —The Oregonian

“This is warm, human, beautifully-executed science fiction, building an intricate world
with subtlety and grace. First it draws the reader in, then it grips them by the throat. I'm
hooked.” —Al Ewing (Royals, The Ultimates, New Avengers)

“PARADISO is a strange trip. It’s not about cool heroes or epic fights, but rather
haunting images of death, destruction, and loss. The robots, androids, and mechanical
men who populate the pages are the stuff of nightmares. Its vision of the future feels
like the works that came out in the 1980s, in a good way. All this is to say that
PARADISO feels all at once nostalgic and totally unique.” —Nerdist

“A novel disguised as a comic book, PARADISO takes the best bits of Western
& Eastern comics and fuses them together into a visually stunning, yet utterly dystopian,
sci-fi tale.” —Ryan O’Sullivan (VOID TRIP, The Evil Within)

PARADISO Coming This December

PARADISO Coming This December
VISIT PARADISO: THE CITY THAT WANTS TO LOVE YOU BACK

All-new dystopian sci-fi series launches this December

“The sort of comic where every panel contains a world. Savour it.” —Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE)

PORTLAND, OR, 09/14/2017 — Writer Ram V (Grafity’s Wall, Black Mumba), artist Dev Pramanik (Nightbloom, Black Mumba), colorist Dearbhla Kelly (James Bond: Moneypenny), and letterer Aditya Bidikar (MOTOR CRUSH, Black Mumba) team up for the mind-bending science fiction tale PARADISO this December.

“I’ve always been fascinated by cities,” said Ram. “They are a reflection of the people within them, and yet they have influence over their citizens. We build them to outlive us, but they are human places, tied in with our understanding of beauty and mortality. Architect and urban designer Rajiv Bhakat and I first conceived the idea of a city trying to understand its place in the world by understanding those who live within it. And, much like a real city, the story has grown and evolved into this crazy, dangerous, romantic, and magical place called PARADISO.”

The Midnight Event forever changed the world.

Now, centuries later, Jack Kryznan arrives on the outskirts of Paradiso City, haunted by fragments of childhood memories and in possession of a mysterious device—one with the power to change the destiny of this living breathing metropolis: the people who dwell within, and the guardians who strive for and against it.

“I've been in love with the desolate, melancholy aesthetic of dystopian landscapes for as long as I can remember,” said Pramanik. “PARADISO was a dream-come-true project for me. Every design and set piece in this comic is something that I've put a piece of my soul into. I hope that will resonate with the readers!”

“PARADISO has been a labour of love,” said Kelly. “Between its weird and fantastic sci-fi concepts and the lush, textured artwork that I get to paint, I couldn’t be more excited to be involved. We’ve created this strange new world and it’s been so much fun getting to play in it.”

“There are pages in PARADISO that come from a hive-mind of writer/artist/colorist/letterer that any one of us just couldn't have planned on our own,” added Bidikar. “PARADISO is everything comics should be.”

PARADISO #1, Cover A by Dev Pramanik (Diamond code: OCT170582) and Cover B by Christian Ward (Diamond code: OCT170583), hits comic book shops Wednesday, December 6th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, November 13th.
