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 Magic Order Is a Hit


The Magic Order Is a Hit
MILLAR REVEALS ANOTHER HIT SERIES UP HIS SLEEVE IN THE MAGIC ORDER

PORTLAND, OR, 06/19/2018 — Comics titan Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel (Amazing Spider-Man, Thor) launched Netflix’s THE MAGIC ORDER #1 last week to overwhelming critical acclaim and fan enthusiasm and, as reported upon by Deadline.com, broke industry records with some of the highest pre-order numbers in two decades.

"An important note to retailers: There will be no second printing on The Magic Order #2. Just like #1, we want to create a huge excitement on the day so that people who get their copy feel extra lucky,” said Millar. “What you order this weekend is what you get, but, as always, there is no risk to retailers, as this comic is returnable."

We live in a world where we’ve never seen a monster, and The Magic Order is the reason we sleep safely in our beds. Magic meets the mob in THE MAGIC ORDER, as five families of magicians—sworn to protect our world for generations—must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day, they live among us as our neighbors, friends, and co-workers, but by night, they are the sorcerers, magicians, and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness… unless the darkness gets them first.

THE MAGIC ORDER #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

THE MAGIC ORDER #2 Cover A by Coipel (Diamond Code MAY180197), THE MAGIC ORDER #2 Cover B by Coipel (Diamond Code MAY180198), THE MAGIC ORDER #2 Cover C by Grampá (Diamond Code MAY188623) will be available on Wednesday, July 18th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, June 25th.

Select praise for THE MAGIC ORDER:

“There are few creators that do big and broad as well as Mark Millar.” —Newsarama

“I’m gonna give it to you straight. This is a comic you’ll definitely want to read, no matter
what genre you’re into. I’ve heard people describe this as mobster Harry Potter but
honestly, it’s so much more than that.” —Impulse Gamer

“Excellent world-building, gorgeous art, and breakneck pacing.” —Monkeys Fighting
Robots

“If you ever wanted an R rated version of the world outside Hogwarts, you'd be hard
pressed to find a better story than this one. Every page contains details as juicy as a
Kardashian rumor mill. The writing is ripe with tantalizing new ideas and concepts. The
art is dark and wondrous.” —Black Nerd Problems

“Completely shattered my expectations and is a book you absolutely can't miss this
week. This was tremendously entertaining.” —Lyles Movie Files

“A great first issue that will definitely leave you wanting more. The Magic Order is
fantastic.” —Outright Geekery

series because it is definitely the sort of thing that I'd watch.” —SciFi Pulse

Altered Carbon
Takeshi Kovacs Novels 1
Del Rey, March 4, 2003
Trade Paperback and eBook, 400 pages

SOON TO BE A BRAND-NEW SERIES ON NETFLIX

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person’s consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or “sleeve”) making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

Ex-U.N. envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful. Dispatched one hundred eighty light-years from home, re-sleeved into a body in Bay City (formerly San Francisco, now with a rusted, dilapidated Golden Gate Bridge), Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats “existence” as something that can be bought and sold. For Kovacs, the shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning. . . .

Marvel’s The Defenders - Official Trailer


Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together. The Netflix original series will launch globally on August 18, 2017.
