—Comic Book Resources

“Delivers some jaw-dropping action and twists before the final page.” —ComicBook.com

PORTLAND, Ore. 10/23/2019 — The first story arc of the epic, critically acclaimed science-fiction SEA OF STARS, VOL. 1 Coming in January 2020adventure Sea of Stars—by writing duo Jason Aaron (Southern Bastards, Thor) and Dennis Hallum (Cloak & Dagger, Vader: Dark Visions), artist Stephen Green (Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.), with colors by Rico Renzi (Spider-Gwen), and with letters and design by Jared Fletcher—will be collected into trade paperback and available from Image Comics this January. Sea of Stars, Vol. 1: Lost in the Wild Heavens will collect issues #1-5 of the intense, galaxy-spanning comic book series that features all the scope and heart of the The Neverending Story crossed with imaginative weirdness of a Miyazaki animation.

Being a space trucker may sound like a cool job, but in reality it can be boring as hell. In Sea of Stars, Vol. 1 a 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. But when their “big rig” gets bitten in half by a gigantic Space Leviathan, Gil is separated from his young son—with a breached suit that’s venting oxygen at an alarming rate. He’ll have to defy the odds and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn. But 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.

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.

THE OTHER SIDE Collected in Deluxe Hardcover

Press Release

THE OTHER SIDE Collected in Deluxe Hardcover

EISNER-NOMINATED MINISERIES
THE OTHER SIDE COLLECTED IN 
DELUXE HARDCOVER THIS JULY
The definitive collection of Jason Aaron and Cameron Stewart’s
Vietnam War series

PORTLAND, OR, 05/08/2017 — Writer Jason Aaron (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, THE GODDAMNED, Scalped) and artist Cameron Stewart (MOTOR CRUSH, Fight Club 2) will release a deluxe hardcover edition, brimming with extras, of their acclaimed miniseries THE OTHER SIDE this July from Image Comics.

THE OTHER SIDE tells an unforgettable Vietnam War story from the point of view of two young soldiers on either side of the conflict. This deluxe edition will also include loads of extra materials straight from the files of both writer and artist—including Cameron Stewart’s pictures, drawings, and journal entries from his preliminary research trip to Vietnam.

“I've never worked harder on a comic than I did on this,” said Aaron. “And if I hadn't, I don't know where I'd be today. This book gave me a career. And in these pages, Cameron and Dave McCaig gave us all some of the most intense and haunting visuals the war comic genre has ever seen.”

“Working on this book was one of the highlights of both my career and my life so far, and I'm thrilled for it to be re-released in this deluxe edition,” said Stewart. “I think it remains as visceral and powerful today as it did a decade ago.”

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION HC (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0222-8, Diamond code: MAY170642) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, July 26th and bookstores Tuesday, August 1st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 26th.

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION HC is available for preorder via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.


Select praise for THE OTHER SIDE:

“This book isn’t trying to be important, it just is. Highest possible recommendation.”
—Brian K. Vaughan (SAGA, PAPER GIRLS)

“Solidly executed in every way, THE OTHER SIDE is both a great start for newcomers
to graphic novels and an achievement veterans of the form will appreciate.”
—BookSlut

“Nothing short of a true classic, up there with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Alan
Moore’s Watchmen.” —Library Journal

“THE OTHER SIDE perfectly nails the gruesome reality of war, but diverges from what
you've seen and read previously through stark hallucinations, mangled moving corpses,
and other unexpected elements—that never compromise the emotional integrity and
reality of what you're reading.” —MTV News

“THE OTHER SIDE demonstrates that war comics, out of favor for decades, retain
substantial viability.” —Booklist

THE OTHER SIDE SPECIAL EDITION is a hardcover collection of the Eisner-Award Nominated miniseries that started it all for writer JASON AARON (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Scalped)! With amazingly visceral artwork from CAMERON STEWART (MOTOR CRUSH, Batgirl) and vivid colors from DAVE McCAIG (American Vampire), THE OTHER SIDE tells an unforgettable Vietnam war story from the point-of-view of two young soldiers on both sides of the conflict.

Private Bill Everette is a US Marine. His opposite number, Vo Binh is a fighter for the People’s Army of Vietnam. These two young men have never met.
