The Silver Coin Extended to Ongoing Series

The Silver Coin Extended to Ongoing Series
INTEREST IN THE SILVER COIN SERIES SKYROCKETS, EXTENDED TO ONGOING SERIES

PORTLAND, Ore. 05/24/2021 — Michael Walsh’s new horror anthology The Silver Coin is being extended into an ongoing series this August in response to its breakout success and positive reception among fans.

The bestselling series, which has thus far showcased a murderers’ row of talent—including Chip Zdarsky (Stillwater), Kelly Thompson, Ed Brisson, and Jeff Lemire (Gideon Falls, Sweet Tooth)—will continue to send chills down readers spines with Joshua Williamson, Ram V, Matthew Rosenberg, and Vita Ayala on board to serve up thrilling new stories. 

"I am beyond excited to continue telling stories in the world of The Silver Coin. The response to the first arc has been overwhelming and it's provided me with the opportunity to bring in an all-new group of incredible talent for more tales of terror," said Walsh. "I'm very lucky to be working with people that consistently elevate my own work and push me to grow as an artist and writer. Josh, Ram, Matt, and Vita are all such insightful, creative and unique voices in the world of comics... I can't WAIT to show off the horrors that we are crafting together."

Each issue of The Silver Coin tells a tale of terror in a shared supernatural world. The story starts in 1978 with a failing rock band whose fortune suddenly changes when they find the mysterious Silver Coin. Little do they know that fame comes with a cost, and a curse is always hungry.

The Silver Coin #5 Cover A by Michael Walsh (Diamond Code JUN210246) and The Silver Coin #5 Cover B by Maya McKibbin (Diamond Code JUN210247) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, August 11. 

The Silver Coin is available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

UPCOMING HORROR ANTHOLOGY SERIES
THE SILVER COIN RICH IN TALENT

PORTLAND, Ore. 01/22/2021 — Eisner Award winning artist Michael Walsh (Star The Silver Coin, Horror Anthology Series, Coming In AprilWars, Black Hammer/Justice League) will team up with an all-star lineup of collaborators—Chip Zdarsky (Stillwater), Kelly Thompson (Sabrina the Teenage Witch), Ed Brisson (Old Man Logan), and Jeff Lemire (Gideon Falls)—in The Silver Coin. This ongoing horror anthology series will launch from Image Comics this April.

Each issue of The Silver Coin will tell a tale of terror in a shared supernatural world interwoven with common characters and overlapping stories. The series begins in 1978 with a failing rock band whose fortune suddenly changes when they find the mysterious Silver Coin. Little do they know that fame comes with a cost, and a curse is always hungry.

“After finishing Black Hammer/Justice League with Jeff Lemire I was really itching to draw a Horror comic. I was also dying to work with a bunch of my favourite collaborators again AND I was really pushing myself to move back into the world of creator owned comics,” said Walsh in and exclusive scoop on the announcement at IGN. “I thought for a while about how I could make all of these things happen and came up with the idea behind The Silver Coin. A shared world where a bunch of writers can throw amazing and horrific ideas at me to draw the hell out of. I approached a group of writers whose work I not only admired as a fan, but also had a fruitful working collaboration with in the past. Everyone signed up for this simple idea... A Coin rolls through time causing supernatural horror to all those that find it. That story prompt grew and evolved into something truly unexpected. As each script came in the world grew into something bigger and more connected... I can't WAIT for readers to find out where this is going and what we have in store for them.”

The Silver Coin, Horror Anthology Series, Coming In AprilZdarsky told IGN: "This was incredibly fun to work on. Michael is such a talented artist with a real eye for horror, I’m pretty stunned with what he was able to do with my story. It’s incredibly creepy.

“It was really great being able to do these side by side with the other writers. Because we all started with the same basic premise and are working with Michael on art, it’s the perfect way to determine which of us is the best writer by comparing our final stories. Which means we’ve all brought our A-game for fear of looking bad by comparison. Which means YOU, the READER, truly wins out!"

The Silver Coin #1 Cover A by Walsh (Diamond Code FEB210045), The Silver Coin #1 Cover B by Tula Lotay, and The Silver Coin #1 Cover C by Maria Nguyen will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 7. 

The Silver Coin #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
