NEW SERIES COMMANDERS IN CRISIS TAKES FLIGHT THIS OCTOBER FROM IMAGE COMICS
PORTLAND, Ore. 07/03/2020 — Fan favorite Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Doom Patrol: Milk Wars, Martian Manhunter

) for a superhero story unlike any other in the forthcoming Commanders in Crisis
. This new ongoing series is produced by Arancia Studio—the Italian media company which worked on Mirka Andolfo’s bestselling Image Comics titles—and will launch from Image Comics this October.
“Commanders in Crisis
is all the energy and creativity I've served for the past five years, now completely unchained!” said Orlando. “No rules, no restraints, the type of strange and passionate ideas that brought me into the medium in the first place. Comics should be bold, comics should be big, and comics should be badass. This is my first freelance launch since 2015, and we're taking a nuclear shot across the bow. No vanilla vengeance here! This is a fight for comics as they need to be.”

Tinto added: “I am really happy about being onboard for Commanders In Crisis
. Steve is a great guy and a fantastic writer and publishing with Image Comics, which put out Invincible, my favorite superhero comic, is a dream come true. I am very thankful for the opportunity.”
