Two Moons - New Arc for Halloween

Two Moons - New Arc for Halloween
HORROR SERIES TWO MOONS KICKS OFF A NEW STORY ARC JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN
PORTLAND, Ore. 07/13/2021 — Bestselling writer John Arcudi (Rumble, B.P.R.D.) and fan-favorite artist Valerio Giangiordano’s popular historical horror series Two Moons will kick off a new story arc this October. Two Moons #6 will begin the next chapter in the hit series and will land on shelves from Image Comics just in time for Halloween and provide the perfect entry point for new readers to jump onto the series.

“The so-called 'Indian Wars' devastated the Indigenous Peoples of the American Plains, so this had to be a part of Two Moons’s story: the aftermath of those wars. How do the Plains People endure? What is their path forward after all this? That’s where this arc takes us," said Arcudi.

After years apart, Frances Shaw (now a medical doctor) and Virgil Two Moons (now a Pawnee shaman) are once again drawn to each other on the eve of an impending crisis in Two Moons #6.

Giangiordano added: "This new story arc allows me to discover and study more and more of the fascinating culture of Native Americans that I did not know. For me it is a fantastic experience to bring this 'world' to life."

Two Moons #6 Cover A by Giangiordano & Crabtree (Diamond Code AUG210043) and Two Moons #6 Cover B by Sook (Diamond Code AUG210044) will both be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 27. 

Two Moons #6 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

Two Moons, Vol. 1: The Iron Noose (ISBN: 978-1534319110) collects issues #1-5 of the series and will be available on Wednesday, August 18 and in bookstores on Tuesday, August 24. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore via Bookshopor IndieBound, or it can be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo

RUMBLE Variants for Black History Month from Image Comics


RUMBLE Variants for Black History Month from Image Comics

LINE OF RUMBLE COVERS REVEALED IN TIME FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH 
Will feature artwork by Keith Pollard, Arvell Jones, Ron Wilson, Chris Brunner, and Sanford Greene

PORTLAND, OR 02/05/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to reveal a very special line of Rumble variant covers in time for Black History Month. These covers will kick off the new story arc with Rumble #11 by John Arcudi and David Rubín and will feature artwork by Keith Pollard, Arvell Jones, Ron Wilson, Chris Brunner, and Sanford Greene.

“There’s such a rich history of African Americans working in comics, but it seems to me not enough people know about it. ‘Okay, then maybe Image and I could help out with that a bit,’ was my thinking when I came up with this tribute series of variants,” said Arcudi. “And luckily, Keith Pollard, Arvell Jones, and Ron Wilson were willing to help us out with their tribute variants—homages, in fact, to their own vintage comics covers. We followed their great covers up with two homages to Black comics' pioneers Matt Baker and A.C. Hollingsworth, done by Chris Brunner and Sanford Greene respectively. Altogether, the series came out pretty great as a kind of visual history of African American cartoonists in comic books.”

In Rumble #11, strange forces have unleashed the Four Scourge Knights of the Apocalypse, and somehow, Bobby LaRosa is mankind’s only hope.

Rumble #11 Cover A (B&W by Rubín, Diamond Code: FEB190190) and Rumble #11 Cover B (pencils by Pollard, inks by Kevin Nowlan, colors by Dave Stewart, Diamond Code: FEB190191) will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, April 17. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shop retailers is Monday, March 25.

Rumble #12 Cover A (B&W by Rubín) and Rumble #12 Cover B (pencils by Jones, inks by Kevin Nowlan, colors by Dave Stewart) will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, May 22.

Rumble #13 Cover A (B&W by Rubín) and Rumble #13 Cover B (pencils by Wilson, inks by Bill Sienkiewicz, colors by Dave Stewart) will be available in comic shops in June.

Rumble #14 Cover A (B&W by Rubín) and Rumble #14 Cover B (pencils & inks by Brunner, colors by Rico Renzi) will be available in comic shops in July.

Rumble #15 Cover A (B&W by Rubín) and Rumble #15 Cover B (pencils & inks by Greene, colors by Rico Renzi) will be available in comic shops in August.
