The Walking Dead: The Alien Coming in Hardcover in July
BRIAN K. VAUGHAN & MARCOS MARTIN’S THE WALKING DEAD: THE ALIEN STORY TO BE AVAILABLE IN HARDCOVER FOR THE FIRST TIME FROM IMAGE/SKYBOUND THIS JULY

PORTLAND, Ore. 05/05/2020 — Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment is pleased to announce that the popular The Walking Dead: The Alien Coming in Hardcover in JulyPanel Syndicate story The Walking Dead: The Alien by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin—which spins out of bestselling phenomenon The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard—will be available in oversized hardcover this July.

This stunning hardcover features a story firmly set in The Walking Dead comic book continuity by Vaughan (Saga) and Martin (The Private Eye, Barrier) and includes never-before-seen designs, sketches and layouts.

“I couldn't be a bigger fan of Vaughan and Martin's work,” said Kirkman. “I've been very hesitant to allow anyone to play in the Walking Dead sandbox in comic form but when the opportunity arose for these gents to show up what Charlie Adlard and I had been doing, I jumped at the chance. It's remarkable what Vaughan and Martin were able to accomplish in one self-contained story. A tale with so much heart and emotion told far more succinctly than I've ever been capable of. I'm so thrilled to finally be sharing this story with a wider audience in this spectacular hardcover edition.”

Originally released in digital format on Panel Syndicate and printed as an oversized single issue exclusively and in limited quantity for Local Comic Shop Day, this The Walking Dead: The Alien story will be available widely and in hardcover for the first time ever.

CHU Coming in June and OUTER DARKNESS/CHEW Trade Paperback Coming in July


CHU Coming in June and OUTER DARKNESS/CHEW Trade Paperback Coming in July
JOHN LAYMAN SERVES CHEW FANS TWO EXTRA HELPINGS: NEW SPINOFF SERIES CHU THIS JUNE, OUTER DARKNESS/CHEW TRADE PAPERBACK IN JULY

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/06/2020 — Fans of the New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award winning, beloved humor/crime comic Chew by CHU Coming in June and OUTER DARKNESS/CHEW Trade Paperback Coming in JulyJohn Layman and Rob Guillory will be served an all-new spinoff series from Layman, and with art by Dan Boultwood, in the forthcoming Chu from Image Comics. For fans hungry for more—Skybound’s popular Outer Darkness/Chew crossover will be collected into trade paperback and available in July.

New spinoff series Chu promises to be a delectable cat-and-mouse story and will stand on its own for new readers—but delight longtime fans of the Chew universe—and will launch from Image Comics this June.

“After more than 60 issues of Chew, it was never a matter of if I would return to the world Rob Guillory and I created, but when. I needed a break after the book ended, but it wasn’t too long after that I started missing the characters and the world, and had the itch to return. It was something I approached cautiously because, while Chew was a complete story, I wanted to return to it in such a way it would be new and say something different, and it took a while to find the right angle. Outer Darkness/Chew was a step in that direction, as well a coda, a flower on the grave that was the story of Tony Chu. Chu is a different take on the Chu family and the Chew-universe, and in many ways it is a mirror, the flip side,” said Layman. “I’m confident readers of Chew will enjoy it, but it’s also something totally new, the story of Saffron Chu, not Tony Chu. She was completely absent from Chew, and this first story arc will tell the story of why that is.”

While Chew’s Tony Chu is a cibopath—able to get psychic impressions from what he eats—Chu’s Saffron Chu is a cibopars—able to learn secrets from who she eats with. Tony is a cop. Saffron is a criminal. They are brother and sister, and they are on a collision course.

Fans won’t want to miss out on this felonious new food noir about cops, crooks, cooks, and clairvoyants.

Chu #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 17.

Chu #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.

Outer Darkness/Chew (ISBN: 978-1534316577) will be available in trade paperback on Wednesday, July 15 and at bookstores on Tuesday, July 21. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shops on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

Walking Dead comic book series conclusion


Fire Power Coming in May 2020 From Robert Kirkman and Chris Samnee - Preview

PORTLAND, Ore. 12/12/2019 — The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning comics titan Fire Power Coming in May 2020 From Robert Kirkman and Chris Samnee - PreviewRobert Kirkman (Oblivion Song, The Walking Dead) is teaming with Eisner winning artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil), Eisner Award winning colorist Matt Wilson (Paper Girls, The Wicked + The Divine), and letterer Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead), to bring fans an all-new, full color, action-packed ongoing series—Fire Power—which will launch from Image/Skybound in May 2020.

“Getting to create a whole new world with its own mythology and rules is always the highlight of my life. Getting to do that with Chris Samnee is definitely a high water mark in this dusty old career of mine,” said Kirkman. “With a massive cast of characters populating this sprawling globe-spanning epic Chris has proven more than adept at handling anything I've thrown at him in the time we've been toiling away on this series in secret. Kung Fu, Fireballs, Chris Samnee, crazy action, Chris Samnee, Chris Samnee. What more could I say to get you excited about this book?”

This is the first new project from Kirkman since the surprise conclusion to his pop culture phenomenon The Walking Dead. Fire Power will more than fill a walker-sized hole in your monthly pull list. This new series also marks Samnee's return to comics after wrapping up his bestselling run on Captain America that concluded in early 2018.

Owen Johnson's journey to China to learn about his birth parents eventually leads him to a mysterious Shaolin Temple. The students there study to rediscover the Fire Power, the lost art of throwing fireballs. A power they claim will be needed soon to save the world. Will Owen Johnson be the first person in a thousand years to wield the Fire Power?

Outer Darkness / Chew Crossover Miniseries Coming in March 2020


Outer Darkness / Chew Crossover Miniseries Coming in March 2020
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING, MULTIPLE EISNER AWARD WINNING CREATORS BEHIND CHEW REUNITE FOR OUTER DARKNESS/CHEW CROSSOVER MINISERIES

PORTLAND, Ore. 12/05/2019 — The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning creative team Outer Darkness / Chew Crossover Miniseries Coming in March 2020behind Chew—John Layman and Rob Guillory (Farmhand)—reunite for a three-issue, crossover, miniseries with Image/Skybound Entertainment’s science fiction horror series Outer Darkness with regular series artist Afu Chan available this March.

“In the years since finishing the final issue of Chew, the urge to return to the world and its characters has been slowly but steadily growing within me. But I had no interest in returning to some generic ‘Untold Case Files of Tony Chu’ type of story. I wanted to return with a story that goes somewhere new, and says something new about the characters. This crossover will do this. And Outer Darkness, believe it or not, is the ideal vehicle to tell this story,” said Layman. “Outer Darkness and Chew are two of my favorite books I’ve ever done, maybe THE favorite books I’ve ever done, and probably the best too. Creatively, combining the two was a dream come true for me. This book is the peanut butter and chocolate of comic book crossovers.”

Tony Chu is a modern-day cop who gets psychic impressions from what he eats. Joshua Rigg is a 28th-century starship captain who flies through an outer space filled with demons, monsters, and ghosts. Sounds like a perfect recipe for a comic book crossover, don’t it? Join the fun with Outer Darkness/Chew #1.

Guillory added: "Returning to the Chew universe was always a no-brainer. I mean, after 60+ issues of Tony Chu’s adventures, how could we not? It’s something longtime fans have clamored for since Chew’s end, and this crossover is the perfect excuse to dive back into the insane world John and I created. It’s the perfect ode to Chew, while highlighting the amazing work John and the insanely talented Afu Chan have been doing on Outer Darkness. It’s two great books that just taste GREAT together."

Outer Darkness/Chew #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 4.

Outer Darkness/Chew #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.

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.

PORTLAND, OR, 08/16/2018 — Eisner Award-winning writer John Layman (CHEW, LEVIATHAN) and artist Afu Chan (Immortal Iron Fists, Spera) team up for OUTER DARKNESS, an all-new sci-fi/horror series coming this November from Image/Skybound Entertainment.

“Thanks to Afu Chan and Skybound, we’ve succeeded in making OUTER DARKNESS as perfect and beautiful as I’d envisioned it to be since finishing Chew,” said Layman. “I’m so unbelievably excited that OUTER DARKNESS is being announced to the world. I’m absolutely in love with this book.”

In OUTER DARKNESS, humankind has successfully colonized the galaxy. But during our interstellar travels, we discovered a terrifying secret out in the vast reaches of space...

Enter Captain Joshua Rigg and the crew of the starship Charon, who will encounter demonic possessions, hauntings, and cosmic horror as they embark on a desperate rescue mission into the Outer Darkness of space—where everything wants to kill them.

“It was scary, in good way, working with John Layman and Skybound, especially on a comic filled with monsters and in space where nobody can hear you,” said Chan. “I am always on the edge of my seat while drawing these pages, and I can't wait for people to experience the ride when reading OUTER DARKNESS. It is the best work I've done yet.”

OUTER DARKNESS #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 7th.
