DAYS OF HATE - 2nd Printing

DAYS OF HATE TAPS INTO CURRENT POLITICAL ZEITGEIST, FAST-TRACKED FOR 2ND PRINTING 

"A beautiful and haunting look at a very troubled world." —IGN

PORTLAND, OR, 01/25/2018 — Bestselling writer Aleš Kot (ZERO, GENERATION GONE), artist Danijel Žeželj (STARVE), and Eisner-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (REDLANDS, PRETTY DEADLY) tap into current political angst with their all-new maxi-series, DAYS OF HATE. In order to keep up with growing readership for the gritty American thriller tragedy DAYS OF HATE #1 is being rushed back to print.

DAYS OF HATE is set in The United States of America in 2022. The loss that ripped two of its main protagonists apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again, on the opposing sides—and all hell has broken loose.

Kot makes waves as an outspoken politically-charged voice in the comics industry and has cultivated a devoted readership and following. Deciding to create a "spiritual sequel" to one of their biggest hits, ZERO, Kot has channeled their sensibility into the intense narrative behind DAYS OF HATE.

Women Write About Comics called it, “painfully prescient… a striking book,” while Newsarama said of DAYS OF HATE: "...both demands and is worth your attention."

Žeželj’s edgy, modern art-style brings the DAYS OF HATE realities to life before readers eyes and highlights the unsettling tones of this dystopian series.

DAYS OF HATE #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

DAYS OF HATE #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code DEC178234) will be available on Wednesday, February 21st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, January 29th.

DAYS OF HATE #2 (Diamond Code DEC170688) will be available on Wednesday, February 28th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, February 5th.

PORTLAND, OR, 01/24/2018 — The highly anticipated REDLANDS, VOL. 1 by the bestselling, two-time Eisner award-winning Jordie Bellaire and critically acclaimed Vanesa R. del Rey will launch big on Wednesday, April 4th—with an additional, exclusive, signed edition for Independent Bookstore Day available on Saturday, April 28th.

The sultry, witchy wiles of The Witches of Eastwick mixed with the deep South flavor of Jason Aaron and Jason Latour’s Southern Bastards, REDLANDS, VOL. 1 is the first book in the ongoing series.

Bellaire is currently one of the most prolific and sought-after colorists in the comics sphere. She is known for her work on such critically-acclaimed series as Vision, They’re Not Like Us, Pretty Deadly, Injection, and Autumnlands, as well as mainstream hits like Batman, Deadpool, Moon Knight, and Hawkeye.

Del Rey began her career with concept art for animation. Her work in comics has been described as dark, gritty, and mysterious with great dominance of figurative work. She is known for her work on such critically-acclaimed series as Scarlet Witch, Spider-Women Alpha, and Daredevil Annual (2016) for Marvel Comics.

Together Bellaire and Del Rey introduce REDLANDS, VOL. 1, where a mysterious and bloodthirsty matriarchal force runs the town of Redlands, Florida. In order to stay on top, sacrifices must be made. Inspired by the strange complexities of real-world politics and crime, the characters of REDLANDS, VOL. 1 play victim and villain, attempting to understand themselves and others through murder, magic, and mayhem.

Bookstores interested in submitting Independent Bookstore Day orders must do so by Friday, February 2, 2018.

Select praise for REDLANDS, VOL. 1:

"Bellaire's writing blends folklore with a contemporary urgency and Del Rey's art is beautifully, frighteningly immersive. A stunning debut." —Scott Snyder 

"Read this beautiful, compelling, epic work, join in the chorus of this scream, and you will see that in the worst of times, our greatest witches do come true." —Tom King 

"Nice f*cking job." —Warren Ellis 

"A chilling, vibrant, angry debut comic from some of the best creators working in comics today. These pages burn with brilliant art and perfectly rendered characters. Witches and Florida are the peanut butter and chocolate that have been missing from comics (and my life). If you're looking for a horror book that will grab you from page one and won't let go, if you're looking for a comic oozing with topical, all-too-real nightmares, or if you're just looking for a rippin' yarn—pre-order Redlands at your local comic shop today." —Robbie Thompson

"Incredibly empowering and perfectly timed for the current state of the Union." —NYLON Magazine

"Image’s powerful series Redlands highlights the link between womanhood and witchcraft, showing the misogyny behind the mythology... In a disturbing, beautiful way, co-creators Jordie Bellaire and Vanesa Del Rey’s Redlands out today from Image revels in the idea that magic is born from unholy contracts between the devil and clever women." —io9

“The writing, by Jordie Bellaire, doesn’t give us any easy answers. The art, by Vanessa Del Rey, is reminiscent, with its muddy murk and startling colors, of 30 Days of Night. It gives us the impression that every scene is lit incompletely by flashlight and that anything could jump out of the darkness.” —Ars Technica

"Horror fans need to pay attention to Redlands. Hell, everybody needs to pay attention to Redlands–it’s freaking fantastic any way you cut it... You don’t want to miss the darkness that is unfolding here. Trust us." —Nerdist

"Dark and ominous." —Geek.com

"Brilliantly paced with non-stop scares. Do yourself a favor and buy this book." —Horror Talk

"Delivers equal amounts of adrenaline and moody atmosphere." —Impulse Gamer

THE DEAD HAND Coming in April


THE DEAD HAND Coming in April
KYLE HIGGINS AND STEPHEN MOONEY START A NEW COLD WAR IN THE DEAD HAND

PORTLAND, OR, 01/23/2018 — The #1 New York Times bestselling writer Kyle Higgins (C.O.W.L., HADRIAN’S WALL, Nightwing) and artist Stephen Mooney (Half Past Danger, Grayson) join forces with Eisner Award-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire for an all-new series steeped in Cold War history, mystery, and spy-thriller action in THE DEAD HAND. The series is set to launch this April.

THE DEAD HAND #1 introduces readers to Carter Carlson, a highly decorated operative during the Cold War. But in the fall of 1991, as the Soviet Union collapsed, Carter discovered a secret that not only changed his life…but also altered the course of history. Now, in 2018, as the mysterious “Dead Hand” threatens to end the world once again, the only thing standing in its way is the relationship between an old spy and a little boy.

"The Dead Hand mixes my love of historical fiction and huge action into one of the biggest stories I've ever written. It's Metal Gear Solid, James Bond, and John le Carré all mixed into one comic," said Higgins. "The end of the Cold War is an incredibly fascinating era—the proliferation of weapons and scientists from the Soviet Union, the complicated relationships between countries, the introduction of capitalism in Russia… it's a great backdrop for a story about the end of the world."

Mooney added: "I’m hugely excited to be embarking on this thrilling Cold War journey with Kyle, Jordie, and Clayton. The Dead Hand is exactly the type of sci-fi tinged espionage book I love as a reader, and I can’t wait for people to take a first step into this murky world. Be careful who you trust!"

THE DEAD HAND #1 (Diamond Code FEB180506) will be available on Wednesday, April 11th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, March 19th.

KOT AND ŽEŽELJ’S DAYS OF HATE ATTACKS WITH SHARP AND RELEVANT GENRE THRILLS

PORTLAND, OR, 12/08/2017 — Bestselling writer Aleš Kot (ZERO, GENERATION GONE) teams up with artist Danijel Žeželj (STARVE) and Eisner-winning colorist Jordie Bellaire (REDLANDS, PRETTY DEADLY) for an all new maxi-series in the gritty American thriller tragedy DAYS OF HATE.

DAYS OF HATE is set in The United States of America in 2022. The loss that ripped two of its main protagonists apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again, on the opposing sides—and all hell has broken loose.

"Days of Hate is all about the characters. It's about them living in a country that is falling apart. It's about love, hate, war, tragedy, and layers of intrigue and double-crossing," said Kot. "It's about the things people do to survive and to live—and about killing Nazis."

DAYS OF HATE #1 (Diamond Code NOV170638) hits stores on Wednesday, January 17th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, December 18th.

ANALOG By Gerry Duggan and David O'Sullivan Coming in March


ANALOG By Gerry Duggan and David O'Sullivan Coming in March
DUGGAN AND O’SULLIVAN ANNOUNCE NEW SERIES ANALOG

NEW YORK, NY, 10/05/2017 — Bestselling writer Gerry Duggan (THE INFINITE HORIZON, THE LAST CHRISTMAS) and artist David O’Sullivan team up for an all-new ongoing series in ANALOG.

“David O'Sullivan is lushly rendering a world that is chaotic, beautiful and repulsive, sometimes on the same page,” said Duggan. “He and Jordie Bellaire are the perfect collaborators to leap over this post-fascist tale of the great crash of the information age.”

ANALOG is the future our society is failing to prepare for. The basic security of the internet crumbles after devastating attacks on the internet result in mass doxxing. People, corporations and governments are all affected and the world is changed overnight. Secrets once entrusted to encrypted emails are now printed on paper, put into briefcases and sent around the world in the hands of discreetly armed couriers. Jack McGinnis is a hard-drinking, hard headed former member of the US intelligence community who now earns a living as a "ledger man".

O’Sullivan added: "Gerry creates a world where all hope is lost and yet a glimmer exists in the very person who tipped it into the abyss. He makes you care about humanity when it’s at its lowest. There’s also lots of violence, the main character is essentially a walking punch bag!"

ANALOG is set to launch from Image Comics in 2018.

Press Release

TOIL AND TROUBLE HITS THE DEEP SOUTH IN REDLANDS
Eisner award winning Bellaire and Del Rey launch witchy new series

PORTLAND, OR, 05/16/2017 — First announced at Emerald City Comic Con, the new ongoing series REDLANDS—created by the all-female team of bestselling, Eisner award-winning Jordie Bellaire (PRETTY DEADLY, Vision, Batman) and critically-acclaimed Vanesa R. del Rey (ZERO, Scarlet Witch, Constantine)—will launch this August.

Redlands is my sick, weird love letter to Stephen King, Florida and Riot Grrrls everywhere but ultimately, hate mail for everything else,” said Bellaire. “Inspired by the strange complexities of real world politics and crime, the characters of Redlands play victim and villain, attempting to understand themselves and others, through murder, magic and mayhem.”

REDLANDS introduces readers to the sleepy, sunny town of Redlands, Florida where the police are failing to maintain control of their old-fashioned community and a coven of killer witches plan to take everything from them.

Del Rey added: “The world of Redlands was brewed in darkness, it is murky waters, it is a gloomy day in the humidity of the mangroves. There is ferocity in this land, it is savagery that goes deep noir. The stories that develop in this world are as intricate as the etched lines that depict them.”

Marrying the sexy, witchy-goodness of Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott's BLACK MAGICK and Melissa de la Cruz's beloved Witches of East End with the deep-South atmosphere of Jason Aaron and Jason Latour's SOUTHERN BASTARDS and American Horror Story: Coven, REDLANDS is set to be the horror series of the summer.

REDLANDS #1 (Diamond Code JUN170621) will hit stores on Wednesday, August 9th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, July 17th.
