DARK WITCHCRAFT & SUSPENSE COLLIDE IN NEW COMIC BOOK MAXISERIES NOMEN OMEN

PORTLAND, Ore. 07/17/2019 — Writer and RPG creator Marco B. Bucci (Magna Veritas, Memento Mori) and artist Jacopo Camagni NOMEN OMEN Coming in October 2019(X-Men Blue, Deadpool The Duck) introduce readers to—Nomen Omen—a tale filled with witchcraft and secrets that will rewire the rules of urban fantasy. The 15-issue maxiseries will launch from Image Comics this October and feature alternative covers by Olivier Coipel and Becky Cloonan.

In Nomen Omen, no matter how fast you run, sooner or later your past will catch up with you. Enter Becky Kumar, a geeky twenty-year-old from New York City who is about to cross the veil between our reality and a realm of otherworldly truths.

“This is not a comic-book, this is a ritual,” said Bucci. “It’s a story no one can protect you from. But don’t be scared: there’s power in names and by reading our book you’ll get a glimpse of how it works.”

Camagni added: “Witchcraft, loss, and inclusiveness: these are the three cornerstones of our story. Magic belongs to all of us, even to those who reject it.”

Nomen Omen #1 Cover A by Camagni, Cover B by Coipel, Cover C by Cloonan, and Cover D (blank) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 2.

Set in the fictional small town of Woodsburgh during the Klondike Gold Rush, Mercy introduces main character Lady Hellaine—an “inhuman” woman—who is always seen with her butler, Mr. Goodwill...

COFFIN BOUND Launches in August


COFFIN BOUND Launches in August
NEW COMIC BOOK SERIES COFFIN BOUND LAUNCHES THIS AUGUST WITH GRINDHOUSE ACTION SET IN A SANDMAN-ESQUE FANTASY WORLD

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 #1 (Diamond Code JUN190026) hits stores on Wednesday, August 7. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, July 15.

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

The Marked from Brian Haberlin and David Hine Coming October 2019



The Marked from Brian Haberlin and David Hine Coming October 2019
SONATA’S BRIAN HABERLIN AND DAVID HINE RETEAM FOR THE MARKED—A BEWITCHING NEW SERIES LAUNCHING THIS OCTOBER

PORTLAND, Ore. 07/08/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the critically-acclaimed creative The Marked from Brian Haberlin and David Hine Coming October 2019team behind the smash-hit series Sonata—Brian Haberlin and David Hine—will reteam for an all-new ongoing fantasy series this October, titled The Marked and perfect for fans of the The Shadowhunters and Charmed.

The Marked may look like cool young influencers, but beneath the designer clothes, their bodies are tattooed with the magical glyphs of an ancient order that secretly protects the world against evil forces.

"The Marked is my chance to do magical, dark and sexy!" said Haberlin. "The world may seem familiar but what lies beneath is certainly not. A world readers of my old series Aria and The Wicked will recognize and maybe we’ll even see some characters from those books appear along the way in this new series!"

With no new occult threats, The Marked use their tattooed powers solely for the pursuit of pleasure until a young woman called Liza creates a dangerous new form of Hybrid Sorcery. The party is over for The Marked. You’ll believe in magic—terrifying, soul-destroying magic.

Hine added: "One of the highlights for me is the way Brian has used his digital skills to create amazing tattoo designs for The Marked. That and the chance to play with magic. The only limit to what these characters can do is the limit of our imagination."

The Marked #1 will hit local comic shops on Wednesday, October 16.

Todd McFarlane to Draw Record-Setting SPAWN #301


Todd McFarlane to Draw Record-Setting SPAWN #301
COMIC BOOK HISTORY IS HERE:
McFARLANE TO DRAW RECORD-SETTING SPAWN #301

Todd McFarlane Productions and Image Comics
celebrate comic book history with
SPAWN #301

TEMPE, Ariz. 06/19/2019 — With its 301st issue, Todd McFarlane’s SPAWN becomes the longest running Todd McFarlane to Draw Record-Setting SPAWN #301creator-owned comic book in the world!

SPAWN launched to record sales of 1.7 million copies when its inaugural issue was released in 1992, helping to cement the early days of Image Comics as a game-changing, new era in creator-owned comic books. Now, 27-years later SPAWN, and Image Comics remain hallmarks of the comic book industry.

As a testament to the longevity of Todd McFarlane’s seminal creation, and to Image Comics’ revolutionary call for creators’ rights to own and control the characters and comic books they create, SPAWN’s 301st issue will be a truly historic release, as McFarlane’s award-winning, fan-favorite superhero, will become the longest running creator-owned comic book ever.

"I could think of no better reason to return to the drawing board than to celebrate the record-breaking 301st issue of the SPAWN comic,” said McFarlane, creator of SPAWN and President at Image Comics. “Twenty-seven years ago, I began this journey on the SPAWN title. That start, along with helping to co-found Image Comics, (today the third largest comic publisher in the nation) was with the goal of allowing creative people to own and control their ideas.

“It is with great pride that I can say that after nearly three decades of producing the SPAWN title, that I am still 100% in the creative driver's seat of the character I brought to life back in 1992,” said McFarlane. “I wrote and drew that first issue and will do the same for this historic issue as well."

To continue the celebration that begins with the deluxe sized, 72-page issue of SPAWN #300, McFarlane will return, once more, to pencil and ink interior story pages for the record-breaking SPAWN #301. Showcasing his unique blend of larger-than-life action and visual world-building, McFarlane will usher in SPAWN’s next creative evolution in his signature “hyper-detailed” style that has been an inspiration to artists and storytellers across all genres of entertainment media.

Joining Todd on SPAWN #301’s superstar creative team will be legendary SPAWN and Batman artist, Greg Capullo, critically-acclaimed illustrator, Jason Shawn Alexander, top comic artists, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opeña and Francesco Mattina, along with more surprises, including more top-tier comic book talent.

SPAWN #301, a 48-page full-color comic book will be in stores September 25, 2019. Also available will be black and white Spawn #301 “Artist Edition” variant showcasing McFarlane and Capullo’s original, inked artwork.

This record-breaking, history-making, oversized issue will retail for $4.99.

SPAWN #300
TODD MCFARLANE & GREG CAPULLO TO DRAW HISTORIC SPAWN #300 COMIC BOOK ISSUE

McFarlane’s SPAWN makes history as the longest running, creator-owned comic book with superstar creative team

LAS VEGAS, Nev. 05/20/2019 — Todd McFarlane’s SPAWN character sets the stage for a historic SPAWN #300celebration as it breaks the record for the longest-running, creator-owned comic in the world. To mark this momentous occasion, McFarlane has gathered a team of superstars from the comic industry to contribute to this giant sized 72-page book.

The big news for SPAWN #300 is that award-winning artist, Greg Capullo (Batman), returns to illustrate SPAWN. Capullo first brought his talents to Image Comics' longest running title, with issue #16, leading to a visually-stunning run as the book’s featured artist, culminating in the hallmark 100th issue.

Following his seminal work on DC Comics’ iconic Batman, Capullo will be the main featured interior artist on SPAWN #300, alongside another major revelation...

For the first time since 1995, Todd McFarlane, one of the top-selling artists in comic book history, will return to pencil and ink interior artwork of the character he created during his high school days!

“I created SPAWN back when I was a teenager hoping to someday break into the comic book industry,” said Todd McFarlane, SPAWN creator, and President at Image Comics. “Now, over 40 years later, not only was I able to have a career drawing and writing comics, but SPAWN has been by my side for most of that journey. Even more exciting, SPAWN is becoming the longest running creator-owned comic in the world!

“The group of creative folks helping out on this historic SPAWN 300th issue is something that I hope thrills the ‘inner 15-year-old' in all of us. Plus, to have Greg Capullo come back to this title after so many long years, is what has me most excited as I personally consider him to be the top talent drawing in our industry today.”

The superstar creative team doesn’t end with Capullo and McFarlane. Current SPAWN artist, Jason Shawn Alexander, fan-favorite J. Scott Campbell (Danger Girl, Spider-Man), rising star Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Seven to Eternity) and best-selling writer Scott Snyder (Batman, Metal, Wytches), all bring their talents aboard to help usher in SPAWN’s next grand evolution.

The birth of Image Comics in 1992 was an exciting time, but there are few moments I remember more vividly than getting my hands on the first issue of SPAWN,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher & Chief Creative Officer at Image Comics. “Todd was already a comics superstar at that point—but SPAWN vibrated with an energy all its own and I think everybody knew it was destined not only to be a hit but to stand the test of time. The fact that we’re approaching issue 300 nearly 30 years later is a testament to its impact not just on Image, but the industry as a whole. Go, Todd!”

SPAWN #300, a 72-page full-color comic book, celebrating 27 years, and counting, of the hit independent series with an all-star lineup of comics creators, will be in stores August 29, 2019. The title will feature 12 covers by McFarlane, Capullo, Campbell, Opeña, and Alexander, including gorgeous black and white “Artist Edition” variants showcasing the original, inked artwork of both Capullo and McFarlane. This historic, oversized issue will retail for $7.99.

Special Mike Mignola Cover for SEA OF STARS


Special Mike Mignola Cover for SEA OF STARS
MIKE MIGNOLA COVER REVEALED FOR JASON AARON, DENNIS HALLUM, AND STEPHEN GREEN’S NEW SCI-FI EPIC SEA OF STARS

PORTLAND, OR 05/10/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to reveal a special Mike Mignola (Hellboy) cover forSea of Stars #1 Mignola cover the forthcoming Sea of Stars by Jason Aaron (Southern Bastards, Thor), Dennis Hallum (Cloak & Dagger, Vader: Dark Visions), Stephen Green (Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.), and Rico Renzi (Spider-Gwen), an ongoing series launching from Image Comics this July.

When recently widowed Gil gets a long-haul gig across the universe, he figures it’s safe enough to bring his young son Kadyn along for the ride—that is, until their “big rig” gets bitten in half by a gigantic Space Leviathan! Sea of Stars follows Gil, now separated from his son—with a breached suit that’s venting oxygen at an alarming rate—as he struggles to defy the odds and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn. But meanwhile, Kadyn seems to be getting all the help he needs from a talking Space Monkey riding a Space Dolphin… or maybe it’s the strange powers he’s suddenly manifesting…?

As Hallum told Deadline, “Jason and I talked about co-writing a story for years, but our sensibilities are so different it never clicked. He had an adventure story about a little boy swimming through the stars. I wanted to turn it into an ice-truck driver who’s kid goes missing in the arctic. Our brains just wouldn’t line up. Instead of compromising, we decided Stephen could pull off both stories at the same time.”

Sea of Stars is a brand-new science fiction series with all the scope and heart of the The Neverending Story crossed with the imaginative weirdness of Miyazaki and promises an intense, galaxy-spanning adventure perfect for fans of Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s Descender.

Sea of Stars #1 Cover A by Green (Diamond Code MAY190023) and Sea of Stars #1 Cover B by Mignola (Diamond Code MAY190024) will be available on Wednesday, July 3. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is this Monday, June 10.

Sea of Stars #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
