The Ludocrats - Jamie McKelvie Cover!


The Ludocrats - Jamie McKelvie Cover!
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.

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

NORROWAY Book Two Coming in August 2020


NORROWAY Book Two Coming in August 2020
BOOK TWO OF EISNER AWARD-NOMINATED, YOUNG ADULT GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES NORROWAYTHE QUEEN ON THE HIGH MOUNTAIN—WILL HIT SHELVES FROM IMAGE COMICS THIS AUGUST

The critically acclaimed Scottish fairytale retelling from Kit & Cat Seaton is the perfect read for fans of The Prince & the Dressmaker 

PORTLAND, Ore. 01/13/2020 — Bestselling creative team of writer Cat Seaton and artist Kit Seaton (Wonder Woman: Warbringer, NORROWAY Book Two Coming in August 2020Afar) return to the Eisner Award-nominated, critically acclaimed, graphic novel trilogy Norroway with Book Two: The Queen on the High Mountain.

This second book in the lauded series continues the Scottish fairytale retelling with charm and whimsy and is perfect for fans of Jen Wang’s The Prince and The Dressmaker. It hits shelves from Image Comics this August 2020.

"I’m really thrilled to showcase an older, wizened, more grizzled Sibylla," said Kit Seaton. "Plus there’s a new cast of characters who will add depth, as well as twists and turns to the narrative. We’ve really taken the story to new heights (pun intended) and can’t wait to show readers this widened view of the world of Norroway."

Seven years have passed since the disastrous events of Norroway, Book One, and now it's time for Sibylla to face her curse-breaking destiny. When Troll Kingdom soldiers arrive in the once-safe town of Fiskeby, she's forced to flee up the Glass Mountain. But the moment she steps foot on Troll lands, she's thrown into a jail cell, where she discovers her amnesiac ex-fiancé is set to wed the Troll Queen’s daughter. Using all of her wits, she must convince the princess to turn against her own mother, or else face execution on the day of the wedding—and doom the kingdom to remain cursed forever.

Cat Seaton added: "In this book we really start to break free of the mold of the original fairy tale—most of the set up has happened, and now we’re seeing the payoff, and the consequences. Canonically, it’s seven years between the lead character’s fall down the mountain and her climb back up. In the original fairy tale you have a girl who waited. With Sibylla, she stopped waiting. She moved on. And then her past came knocking."

Norroway, Book Two: The Queen on the High Mountain (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1607-2) will be available on Wednesday, August 26 and in bookstores on Tuesday, September 1. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

Norroway, Book Two 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.

NORROWAY Book Two Coming in August 2020Norroway, Book One: The Black Bull of Norroway (ISBN: 978-1534308558) remains available wherever books are sold, including comic book shops and on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.

Praise for Norroway, Book One:

2019 Eisner Award nomination for “Best Publication for Teens”
The Chicago Public Library’s “Best of the Best Books 2018”
2018 Foreword Reviews Indie Winner in “Graphic Novels & Comics”


“More than just a typical fairy-tale adaptation...visually rich and the characters are diverse.” —The Los Angeles Times

“Panels are beautifully illustrated with rich, sweeping details and magical elements… A gripping cliff-hanger will have readers excited to pick up the next volume.” —School Library Journal

“Cat and Kit Seaton have created a story and characters so breathtaking that I think of this book almost every day. Sibylla is an energetic and headstrong protagonist who encounters mesmerizing characters, gorgeous lands, and high-stakes curses throughout her journey. I am smitten.” —Leila del Duca, Sleepless

“Beautifully drawn and wonderfully told, Norroway is a marvelous re-imagining of the classic myth.” —Johnnie Christmas, Angel Catbird

“I adored this comic. I can't wait to see how these two anti-heroes get together and save the Bull and his family from the curse.” —Love in Panels

Norroway is reminiscent of Jim Henson’s Storyteller—the sort of book that sends not just the protagonist on a journey into another world, but the reader, too.” —Paste Magazine

“A brilliant take on mythological elements.” —The Beat

As the first snow covers the chaos in a white blanket, a mysterious woman in black arrives, eliciting a totally different kind of unrest. But who is Lady Hellaine, really? And what’s her secret agenda? Watch the spine-tingling teaser trailer.

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.

After the poignant story of inclusion and self-discovery told in Unnatural, Andolfo presents a darker story that addresses issues far beyond typical genre-related tropes. Fans excited for the new series can visit mirkaandolfo.com for bonus Mercy content, exclusive artwork, and supplemental story material.
