BARRIER Miniseries by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin Available In Print This May


BARRIER Miniseries by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin Available In Print This May
IMAGE COMICS TO PUBLISH BRIAN K. VAUGHAN AND MARCOS MARTIN’S MINISERIES BARRIER

The five-issue miniseries will be available in print for the first time this May

PORTLAND, OR, 02/13/2018 — Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin, the Eisner Award-winning creative team behind THE PRIVATE EYE, are reunited in BARRIER, the five-issue miniseries originally published in digital format via Panel Syndicate and featuring color work by Muntsa Vicente. This May, all five issues will be available in print for the first time, exclusively from Image Comics.

BARRIER is a truly unconventional drama that tackles violence, language, and illegal immigration—with a shocking sci-fi twist. Printed in its original “landscape” format and graced with gorgeous cardstock covers, each comic is meant to be a durable work of art.

“I’m enormously proud of this story, not least because it features some of the best artwork ever from the incomparable Marcos Martin and Muntsa Vicente,” said Vaughan. “Everyone behind PanelSyndicate.com is so excited that Image is bringing this story to print and making these five extra-sized issues available exclusively through local comic shops. Gracias!”

“Una historia sobre las barreras que levantamos entre nosotros y el viaje necesario para comprender que todos compartimos un mismo destino,” dijo Martin. “We hope you’ll enjoy the trip!”

Mature readers will be able to pick up the massive 50-plus-page first issue for free on Free Comic Book Day on May 5th. The following week, a special collector’s edition of the first issue will be released in a larger size to match the next four issues being released weekly throughout the rest of May.

BARRIER #1 (Diamond code: MAR180571) and BARRIER #2 (Diamond code: MAR180573) hit comic book stores Wednesday, May 9th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 16th.

Select praise for BARRIER:

“BARRIER is a science-fiction comic that America needs right now.” —io9

“A fascinating mix of topical immigration issues, drug cartels, and something wholly unexpected.” —Newsarama

“Huge credit should be given to BKV and Martin for coaxing a compelling and powerfully human story out of what could have easily descended into pseudo-propaganda. BARRIER plays with the concepts of tension and isolation in a truly captivating way.” —Multiversity Comics

“Marcos Martin is one of the best artists in comics, and BARRIER is an outstanding spotlight for his storytelling skills.” —AV Club

New SAGA Arc Kicks Off With 25¢ Issue to Celebrate 25 Years of Image Comics

NEW SAGA ARC KICKS OFF WITH
25¢ ISSUE TO CELEBRATE 25
YEARS OF IMAGE COMICS
Limited edition Image 25th anniversary prints by
Fiona Staples also available


PORTLAND, OR, 04/18/2017 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the full-length 43rd issue of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ multiple Eisner Award-winning series SAGA will be priced at $0.25 in celebration of Image’s 25th anniversary. In addition to this collectible $0.25 issue, limited quantities of a commemorative Image 25th anniversary print featuring exclusive and all-new SAGA artwork by co-creator Fiona Staples may also be available. Contact your local comic shop for more details.

A perfect jumping-on point for new readers, SAGA #43 sees Hazel and her star-crossed parents embarking on a thrilling new adventure at the westernmost edge of the universe.

“I am so proud of this issue, and excited for our craziest storyline yet!” said Vaughan. “Fiona and I wanted to thank our incredible readers for five years of loyalty with this special $0.25 issue, but we also hoped to encourage anyone who hasn’t yet read SAGA to finally dip their toes in our water (eww).

“So if you have 'mature' friends or loved ones you think might be weird enough to enjoy our series, why not pick up a few extra copies to share with them?” asked Vaughan. “Either way, we know our beloved retailing partners won’t profit as much as they would from our regular $2.99 cover price, so if we save you a few bucks in May, we hope you’ll please consider shifting a little of that money back to your local store by trying PAPER GIRLS or THE OLD GUARD or STRAY BULLETS or any of the other spectacular collection of creator-owned comics that our friends at Image have been publishing for an unbelievable 25 years.”

SAGA #43 (Diamond code: MAR170720) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, May 31st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 1st.

LIMITED EDITION IMAGE 25TH ANNIVERSARY PRINTS: color version, B&W version, and signed color version, will also be available in limited quantities on Wednesday, May 31st.
