Summoners War: Legacy Coming in April from Image / Skybound Entertainment and Com2uS

Summoners War: Legacy Coming in April from Image / Skybound Entertainment and Com2uS

IMAGE/SKYBOUND’S SUMMONERS WAR: LEGACY PROMISES FANS ACTION PACKED PREQUEL THIS APRIL

PORTLAND, Ore. 01/21/2021 — The highly anticipated tie-in comic book series Summoners War: Legacy Coming in April from Image / Skybound Entertainment and Com2uSSummoners War: Legacy—by writer Justin Jordan (The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, Reaver) and artist Luca Claretti (Adventure Time Comics) with colors by Giovanna Niro (Star Trek: Nero) and lettering by Deron Bennett (Excellence, Assassin Nation)—is set to launch in April 2021 from Image/Skybound Entertainment in partnership with game publisher Com2uS.

Fans of the game and newcomers alike will have the chance to journey to Alea in this dramatic, action-packed prequel comic book based upon the wildly popular Summoners War mobile game. Summoners War: Legacy comic series is the latest expansion to the Summoners War IP, along with upcoming mobile games Summoners War: Lost Centuria and Summoners War: Chronicles. The variety of expansions is a testament to the game’s success and longevity which proves to be a major tentpole for Com2uS’ gaming portfolio.

In Summoners War: Legacy, Rai knows there’s only one way out of a nothing town—to become a summoner! Armed with a summoning book of monsters, there would be nowhere she couldn’t go, and no adventure she couldn’t have. There’s only one problem: the world is at war and even untrained summoners like Rai must join the fight.

Recruited by Abuus Dein as an apprentice, Rai finds herself thrust into a battle for the fate of the world that none of them expected. Rai must learn there’s a lot more to life than having fun, but can she become the summoner the world needs in time?

Summoners War: Legacy takes place 35 years before the universe-shattering conflict at the mobile game’s center. The comic series features fan-favorite monsters, explores the fate of Durand’s parents, and expands on the mystical land of Alea and its colorful characters including Abuus, Rai, and Tomas. This riveting addition to Summoners War canon brings a rich lore to the franchise and draws new connections to the upcoming Summoners War games and the Summoners War: Sky Arena game that fans know and love.

"Summoners War has created a great world, and it's been amazing fun to grow that world,” said Jordan. “Legacy is a really fun book that will explore places the game has yet to go, and I think it's a damn good adventure too. Luca and Gio have done amazing work with the art, and I can't wait for people to see the book."

Claretti added: “The thing that excited me the most about working on this project, is that even though there was a world already very characterized, deep and alive, I still had great freedom to explore and create ‘our’ vision of the world of Summoners War. And that's not necessarily what you’d expect in this kind of project.”

Summoners War: Legacy #1 (Diamond Code FEB210054) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 28. 

Summoners War: Legacy #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

REAVER Coming in July from Rebekah Isaacs and Justin Jordan





REAVER Coming in July from Rebekah Isaacs and Justin Jordan
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’S REBEKAH ISAACS TEAMS WITH LUTHER STRODE’S JUSTIN JORDAN ON A GRIM, NEW FANTASY SERIES FOR THE GAME OF THRONES FAN IN REAVER

PORTLAND, OR 04/16/2019 — Just in time for fans anticipating Game of Thrones withdrawals, comes an all-REAVER Coming in July from Rebekah Isaacs and Justin Jordannew, dark fantasy series by Justin Jordan (Luther Strode) and Rebekah Isaacs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) titled, Reaver. The new series is set to launch from Image Comics/Skybound this July.

The continent of Madaras once promised a new start for settlers, but 200 years after its discovery, the war rages on. Deep within this savage and untamed land, a darkness builds that must be stopped at all costs.

To do so, the Imperials assemble six of its most despicable prisoners—a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer and his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil’s Son—the only ones who can stop the end of the new world. They are Hell’s Half-Dozen.

In the exclusive scoop on the series announcement, Jordan told Polygon: “If you like your fantasy grim, dark and bloody, Reaver is the book for you. I've been working on this for years, and it's finally time to see the gory baby that Rebekah and I have created.”

Isaacs told Polygon, “Working on this book was like playing the best kind of D&D campaign—the characters are crude, rude, and entirely unpredictable. They are a DM’s worst nightmare! I loved the combo of a Grindhouse feel in a high-fantasy setting. It made this blood-and-gore-lovin’ artist very happy.”

Reaver #1 by Becky Cloonan (Diamond Code MAY190027) will hit stores on Wednesday, July 10. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, June 17.

Reaver 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.

Select praise for THE FAMILY TRADE:
“Vivid and beautifully colored, cartoony in a classical sense, and it adds up to being one
of the most visually arresting comics of the year.” —Comic Book Resources
“High praise is due to this team for writing a heroine worthy of admiration by all ages,
and giving her glorious art to match.” —Multiversity Comics
“An interesting setting and a witty, self-aware, badass female lead character is going to
reel me in. The Trumpian main character will justifiably push some away, but Jordan
and Ryan have built the foundation for a solid, solid series in The Family Trade.”
Court of Nerds
The Family Trade is a solid start with a foundation to build on: a likable protagonist, an
interesting world, and an inner conflict to grow.” —Black Nerd Problems

DEATH OF LOVE Coming For Valentine's Day


DEATH OF LOVE Coming For Valentine's Day
DEATH OF LOVE ARRIVES JUST IN TIME FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

PORTLAND, OR, 11/16/2017 — Writer Justin Jordan (THE FAMILY TRADE, SPREAD) teams up with artist Donal DeLay (You are Not Alone, My Geek Family), colorist Omar Estévez (Heavy Metal Magazine, Batman ‘66), and letterer Rachel Deering (In the Dark, Vertigo Quarterly) for the least romantic Valentine’s comic ever: DEATH OF LOVE.

Love sucks. And Philo Harris is going to do something about it.

After a particularly bad, drunken decision, Philo gains the ability to see the Cupidae, the creatures responsible for all the love in the world, and declares war on love itself. With a chainsaw.

“Love is funny. Chainsaws are funny. Love AND chainsaws, therefore, is gonna be super funny,” said Jordan. “Basically, if you've ever wanted to see Cupid torn apart in increasingly hilarious ways, this is definitely the comic for you.”

“I just want everyone to laugh the same way they would watching Army Of Darkness or This Is The End,” added DeLay.

DEATH OF LOVE #1 (Diamond code: DEC170601) hits comic shops Wednesday, February 14th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, January 22nd.

Luther Strode: The Complete Series in Hardcover This October

Luther Strode: The Complete Series in Hardcover This October
LUTHER STRODE: THE COMPLETE SERIES
TO BE COLLECTED INTO HARDCOVER EDITION

PORTLAND, OR, 08/14/2017 — Fan-favorite writer Justin Jordan (SPREAD, THE FAMILY TRADE) and artist Tradd Moore (Venom, All-New Ghost Rider) deliver the complete, critically-acclaimed LUTHER STRODE series collected into one hardcover volume for the first time this October in LUTHER STRODE: THE COMPLETE SERIES. It will collect THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE #1-6, THE LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE #1-6, and THE LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1-6.

“Luther sent away for the Hercules Method and it changed his life. I sent Luther Strode away to Image, and it changed my life,” said Jordan. “Fortunately, that worked out a lot better for me than it did for Luther in the book. It's amazing to see the book that started my career as one hardcover edition, and even for people who've been with us the whole journey, there's tons in here never seen by anyone but me, Tradd and Felipe until now.”

Moore added: “It’s an honor and a joy to have our whole series collected in this incredible hardcover format, and I can’t wait to share it with readers old and new. Prepare your eyes for a BLOODBATH!”

Luther Strode is an average teenage nerd until he sends away for The Hercules Method, a bodybuilding course that promises to give him the body of his dreams. But the powers he unleashes make him a target for a murder cult as old as mankind, cost him almost everything, and take him across the world in the fight to take back his life.

LUTHER STRODE (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0324-9, Diamond Code JUL170750) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 4th.

It will be available in bookstores on Tuesday, October 10th and can be pre-ordered now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, and Indigo.

Note:  Also available at Book Depository, Books-A-Million and Powell's.
