Dracula, Motherf**ker Coming in October 2020


Dracula, Motherf**ker Coming in October 2020
ALEX DE CAMPI, ERICA HENDERSON OUT FOR BLOOD WITH PULP HORROR GRAPHIC NOVEL—DRACULA, MOTHERF**KER—IN STORES THIS OCTOBER

Preview pages of the action-filled twist
on the classic Bram Stoker vampire tale revealed


PORTLAND, Ore. 03/12/2020 — Bestselling writer Alex de Campi (Archie vs. Predator) and Erica Henderson (Squirrel Girl) Dracula, Motherf**ker Coming in October 2020team up for a pulpy, pulse-pounding, original graphic novel titled Dracula, Motherf**ker. This California-set, psychological horror story will hit stores from Image Comics in October.

Straddling two different timelines, Dracula, Motherf**ker travels between Vienna, 1889 where Dracula’s brides nail him to the bottom of his coffin and Los Angeles, 1974: wherein an ageing starlet decides to raise the stakes. Crime scene photographer Quincy Harker is the only man who knows it happened, but will anyone believe him... before he gets outlined in chalk himself?

“Most people who know my work are aware that I love pulp/exploitation cinema so me doing a book called Dracula, Motherf**ker shouldn’t really surprise anyone,” said De Campi. “Another thing I wanted to bring to this pulp fantasia was a sensibility from horror anime, with its love of transformation and of the noncorporeal, to push the element of man-as-monster in directions specifically suited to sequential art. Things like the abstract portrayal of Alucard (or Pride in FMA: Brotherhood), and the use of Superflat art in Madoka Magica were tremendously inspirational in this book, especially as that use of flatness dovetails nicely with the work of Gustav Klimt in with the book’s 1889 prologue, and with late-1960s pop art and the psychedelic liquid-light projections of the Joshua Light Show.

Erica Henderson has been an absolute dream to work with. She brings so, so much to the book, from her expert visual storytelling skills and her experimental, wildly exciting use of colour in this story to her appreciation of my Demi Moore jokes.  When I saw there’s a nocturne page which is chartreuse silhouettes on a cobalt background, I nearly died, it was so striking. Erica’s so famous from Squirrel Girl so people frequently think of her in terms of her skill with comedy, but seriously, she can do ANYTHING. And watching what she does with Dracula, Motherf**ker? There’s a lyricism of line and mastery of colour that blows everything else she’s done out of the water. That splash on page two makes me think of Kuniyoshi, and she’s brought so much in from blaxploitation film posters, pulp detective novel/Robert McGinnis colours... I’m really not worthy. People will be talking about her art on this book for a long time.”

The perfect standalone story for fans of BBC One’s recent miniseries Dracula, this is an action-filled twist on the classic Bram Stoker vampire tale.

Dracula, Motherf**ker (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1700-0) will be available on Wednesday, October 7 and in bookstores on Tuesday, October 13. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shops on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

Dracula, Motherf**ker 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.

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.

MERCY Reprint Cover Art Revealed and Signing Tour Announced

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/06/2020 — On Wednesday, Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #1 fan mania reached a fever pitch, completely overwhelming the industry, and the entirety of the title’s 60K print run sold out instantly at the distributor level upon release. Now Image Comics is pleased to reveal the exclusive artwork by Andolfo for this Mercy #1, second printing cover ahead of Andolfo’s Seattle signing tour.

Comic Book Resources called Mercy #1 “a Victorian Gothic Horror Masterpiece,” while ComicsBook.com said of it: “a gem of a comic.”

And what’s her secret agenda?

Mercy explores topics of “otherness,” damnation and redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, Carnival Row, and Dark Shadows. More exciting details about the goth-inspired, Victorian monster series will be unveiled as the United States release date approaches.

UNBELIEVABLE JAMIE MCKELVIE COVER FOR THE LUDOCRATS REVEALED

The Ludocrats - Jamie McKelvie Cover!

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/04/2020 — Image Comics is pulsating ominously as it reveals a Ludocrats #1 cover B featuring reality-warping artwork from Jamie McKelvie (The Wicked + The Divine, forthcoming The Killing Horizon), which will be available with the series launch from Image Comics this April.

When asked to comment the cover, McKelvie didn't say "this is the greatest comic I've ever seen. It's better than anything I've done." McKelvie didn't continue, "I wish Kieron would ask me for quotes, but we only speak via Lawyers now WicDiv is over. It's a tragic breakdown of a friendship." When asked to comment, Gillen said: "Talk to my lawyer."

Ludocrats #1 by bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (Die, The Wicked + The Divine), writer Jim Rossignol (Sir, You Are Being Hunted), and artist Jeff Stokely (The Spire) with colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Once & Future) is a gleefully bizarre five issue, fantasy miniseries that thinks there's more gold in the hills mined by I Hate Fairyland and they can uncover it with illegally acquired Python-infused explosives.

In short: The Ludocrats! The aristocrats of ludicrous! A collision of the ornate fantasy of Dune and an M-rated Asterix & Obelix! Baron Otto Von Subertan and Professor Hades Zero-K are here, and they're going to save us all have a nice time.

Ludocrats #1 Cover A by Stokely (Diamond Code FEB200052) and Ludocrats #1 Cover B by McKelvie (Diamond Code JAN208731) will be available at comic book shops on April Fool’s Day—Wednesday, April 1. Not joking.

BLISS Coming in June 2020


BLISS Coming in June 2020
NEIL GAIMAN’S AMERICAN GODS MEETS BREAKING BAD IN ADDICTIVE NEW URBAN FANTASY MAXI-SERIES BLISS LAUNCHING THIS JUNE
Interior preview pages revealed

PORTLAND, Ore. 03/02/2020 — Award winning playwright and bestselling comics writer Sean Lewis (Coyotes, Thumbs) BLISS Coming in June 2020reteams with fan favorite Coyotes artist Caitlin Yarsky for a dark urban fantasy maxi-series titled Bliss. It will consist of two story arcs and launch from Image Comics this June.

“I grew up seeing people getting addicted to things: drugs, success, sex... it always seemed to be about forgetting deeper pains,” said Lewis. “I spent some of my life trying to forget my dad through these means, now that I'm a dad it made me wonder: how could that cycle break? And what happens to all these memories we push away? What if the Goddess Lethe was real? What if she is who we answered to?”

In this upcoming series, there's a drug called Bliss wiping away memories in Feral City. A good-hearted young man—overwhelmed by a deathly sick child and distraught wife—makes a deal to become the personal hitman to three gods, killing those in their way and sending memories down the river of Oblivion in exchange for his family’s well-being.

Yarsky added: “As time passes and we become more burdened with memories of our past mistakes and misfortunes, we often turn to self destructive coping mechanisms. Anything to turn off the din of guilt and regret. But in the process of trying to drown it all out, we create monsters that eat away at us until there is nothing left. To me, Bliss is about what happens when we pull ourselves out of the wreckage. It’s about finding redemption through self-actualization and love.”

Best described as Breaking Bad meets Neil Gaiman's American Gods, Bliss is the perfect new addiction for fans of Gaiman’s Sandman and Dan Watters and Dani’s Coffin Bound.

Bliss #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 24.

Bliss #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.

ADVENTUREMAN Coming this April


ADVENTUREMAN Coming this April
MATT FRACTION AND TERRY DODSON LAUNCH GENRE-BLENDING, PULSE-POUNDING NEW SERIES ADVENTUREMAN THIS APRIL 

Preview pages from the upcoming series revealed

PORTLAND, Ore. 02/19/2020 — New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning writer Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals, Hawkeye), ADVENTUREMAN Coming this Aprilartist Terry Dodson (X-Men/Fantastic Four), and Rachel Dodson (X-Men/Fantastic Four) team up for an all-new, ongoing adventure series—Adventureman—from Image Comics this April beginning with a massively extra length and wildly affordable first issue.

"Terry and Rachel and I have been working together a long time on Adventureman and I'm thrilled our giant baby is finally ready for the world. It's a high-flying, senses-obliterating, earth-shaking, imagination-quaking, adventure and we can't wait to share it with everyone," said Fraction.

The story of beloved pulp hero "Adventureman" ended with a never-resolved cliff-hanger for his legion of fans as their hero faced execution at the vile hand of his ultra-nemesis "Baron Bizarre." And now, eighty years later, single mother Claire and her Adventurefan son Tommy seem to be the only two people alive that remember the thrilling Adventureman sagas… but from that memory burns the spark of... resurrection. What if it was all true? What if it all really happened? And what if it was happening again? Where his story ended... her story begins! 

Dodson added: "Creating Adventureman has been a heck of a journey! It’s been an amazing opportunity to develop new worlds of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Worlds inhabited by enduring and believable characters, making a family. This project allows me to tick off numerous 'wants' on my creative list! I hope everyone enjoys the ride as much as we did making it.”

Blending high-octane pulp action, low-flying dirigibles and more art-deco rayguns than you could shake a walking stick at, Adventureman kicks off with a 64 page issue filled to the brim with action and intrigue for the introductory cover price of $3.99.

Adventureman #1 (Diamond Code FEB200011) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 29.

Adventureman #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.

PORTLAND, Ore. 02/05/2020 — Bestselling, Eisner Award nominated artist Sanford Greene pays homage to popular Miyazaki film, My Neighbor Totoro, in forthcoming Bitter Root #6 by David F. Walker, Chuck Brown, and Greene.

The new story arc of Bitter Root kicks off with issue #6 and will feature the work of new colorist Sofie Dodgson.

In Bitter Root #6, the monster-fighting Sangerye family returns for another adventure. Loved ones once thought lost forever have returned—though the bliss of this family reunion doesn’t last for long. Cullen has changed, and everyone is concerned. But they’ll need all the help they can get, as a new threat has arrived on Earth…

Nominated for multiple awards—including the Eisner and the Ringo—and hailed as one of 2019’s “Best New Series” by Entertainment WeeklyBitter Root is currently in development as a film from producer Ryan Coogler and Legendary.

The Bitter Root series takes place in the 1920s while the Harlem Renaissance is in full swing and follows the Sangerye Family.

Select praise for Bitter Root:

“Incredibly entertaining.” —Entertainment Weekly

"Historical fiction mixes with supernatural horror, producing a hybrid fantasy world of voodoo spells, mad science, monster Klansmen, and Jazz Age demon hunters wielding steampunk versions of Ghostbusters proton packs... Comics fans will look forward to future volumes of this energetic dark fantasy that effectively mixes thrills and scares." —Publishers Weekly

"Relentless action...a kinetic style." —Library Journal

"The comic is by an all-black creative team and features a predominantly black cast of characters in the 1920s—embracing the black artistic creativity of the Harlem Renaissance but also recognizing the racism of the time." —The Washington Post

"The tragedy and family drama at the heart of Image Comics’ new series Bitter Root may be the most traditional thing about a comic that is, at heart, anything but traditional." —The Hollywood Reporter

“A comic with a clear message, it never feels overtly moralizing, but simply an education as stark and brutal as the rad-as-hell monster-fighting horror that plays out in as the family goes about its work.” —io9

"Puts a monstrous face on bigotry and a beautiful new spin on the Harlem Renaissance." —The Onion's AV Club

"Confident in itself and doesn't need to rely on overwrought high-concept themes. Bitter Root isn't afraid to tackle weighty issues while still having some fun, giving us some new heroes that are much needed in today's world." —ComicBook.com
