Space Bandits Coming In July


Space Bandits Coming In July
MARK MILLAR & IMAGE/NETFLIX ANNOUNCE SPACE BANDITS & SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION COVERS ILLUSTRATED BY ARTIST LEGENDS

First Limited Legends Cover Illustrated by Howard Chaykin
to Retail for Just 75 Cents, the Price of a Comic-Book When Millar Was a Teen

PORTLAND, OR 04/16/2019 — Today, Netflix and Mark Millar announce their latest project created in-house, SPACE BANDITS #1 Cover ASpace Bandits—a female led sci-fi story, described by Millar as a female Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid set in space with a massive and exciting cast of characters.

Superstar Artist Matteo Scalera will illustrate the comic-book translation of this original Netflix property, published by Image Comics.

In Space Bandits, Thena Khole and Cody Blue are among the universe’s most wanted felons. Each the leader of their own criminal operations, they run heists across the galaxies—hopping from ship to ship to fleece everyone inside. But when both women are betrayed by their treacherous crews, the bandits only have one thing on their minds: REVENGE.

"I love writing female-led stories in everything from Reborn to Empress to Hit-Girl to Jupiter's Legacy and, of course, our recent Magic Order at Netflix," said Millar. "I also love writing big, fun sci-fi things. In a world with a billion superhero properties and gloomy, rain-soaked dystopian sci-fi, there's a gap in the market for sci-fi that's upbeat and fun and I wanted to combine all this into a big, high-octane story. I've been working on this as a property for Netflix since last Summer and now I'm being joined by the brilliant Matteo Scalera for the comic-book translation of this story. The guy's a genius and I've followed him for years. Having him draw this is like someone you've always had a crush on going out on a date with you. He's just amazing."

As a special bonus, and available to order at the same time, is a limited edition series of Space Bandits Legends Covers, featuring Miller’s all-time favorite comic-book artists—artists Miller was obsessed with in high school, and whom he has wanted to work with for years.

The first of these five very limited edition covers will be illustrated by comic-book legend Howard Chaykin, and will retail for the same price as a comic-book cost when Mark was in high school… just 75 cents. All other covers will retail at the regular $3.99 price.

Space Bandits #1 will be available in stores on Wednesday, July 3. The final order cutoff deadline is June 10.

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

The Weatherman Inspires A Synthwave Soundtrack
THE WEATHERMAN INSPIRES AN ORIGINAL, SYNTHWAVE SOUNDTRACK

PORTLAND, OR, 05/17/2018 — Image Comics is pleased to announce an original soundtrack for THE WEATHERMAN curated by synthwave phenomenon MAGIC SWORD and featuring song contributions from today's hottest synthwave artists including...
This original soundtrack will kick-off THE WEATHERMAN #1 anticipation with Magic Sword’s song “Colossus”. Experience it now at https://soundcloud.com/theweathermansoundtrack.

About THE WEATHERMAN:
Nathan Bright had it all: an awesome girlfriend, a kickass dog, and a job as the #1 weatherman on terraformed Mars. But when he’s accused of carrying out the worst terrorist attack in human history—an event that wiped out nearly the entire population of Earth—Nathan becomes the most wanted man alive, and a target of a manhunt that spans the galaxy. But is Nathan truly responsible for such a horrific crime? And why can’t he remember?

Confused, terrified, and ill prepared for life as the galaxy’s most wanted, Nathan’s fate lies in the hands of Amanda Cross, the disavowed government agent assigned to his case. Together the unlikely duo will have to rely on each other as they battle their way through the solar system in search of the truth buried in Nathan's lost memory...and the key to stopping the real enemy from carrying out a second extinction-level attack.

A full-throttle, wide-screen, science fiction epic about the damage we do in the name of justice and what it truly means to be redeemed…fans won’t want to miss THE WEATHERMAN.

Fans can first listen to MAGIC SWORD's track "COLOSSUS" and pre-order THE WEATHERMAN #1 at their local comic book store. The next song on THE WEATHERMAN soundtrack will release on the same day as issue #1—Wednesday, June 13th. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, May 21st.
