RELEASE:

BRITANNIA2_001_COVER-A_NORDMaster Storytellers Peter Milligan & Juan Jose Ryp Investigate a Harrowing New Prestige-Format Case for the World’s First Detective

As revealed today at io9, Valiant is proud to announce BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #1 (of 4) – a brand-new journey into myth and mystery from comics master Peter Milligan (Shade, The Changing Man) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (Britannia)! On April 26th, Valiant’s critically acclaimed, ten-time sold-out magnum opus returns with an all-new beginning and a startling new case for Antonius Axia, the world’s first detective… One with a haunting connection to the horrors of Rome’s arena and the very gods themselves…

Fifty thousand Romans stand on their feet, watching from the rafters of the coliseum with captured breath as Achillia, a gladiator unlike any that Rome has seen before, faces incredible odds – one lone warrior against five of Rome’s greatest. Such is the tradition, when a female gladiator enters the fray. When the carnage is complete, the coliseum roars its approval as Achillia stands victorious. Now, only one match away from winning her freedom, she has begun to gain renown. The women of Rome, suppressed by their husbands and fathers, have noticed. The men of Rome, husbands and fathers to a growing horde of women entertaining ideas of independence, have noticed as well.

On the other side of Rome, a strange mystery swirls through the Palatine Hill. In the dead of night, down winding alleys, Rome’s elite swear that they see visions of a blood-soaked Apollo walking the city…visions that are driving them mad. Even more are becoming sick with weird fever god-dreams. Panic ensues in the city. The Chief Vestal, Rubria, is arrested by Emperor Nero and threatened with crucifixion unless the deadly curse that’s fallen on Rome is lifted. She asks Antonius Axia, hero of Britannia and Rome’s only detective, for help. She offers only one clue…the gladiator Achillia.

“We couldn’t be prouder of the work that Peter and Juan have done in building the captivating and mysterious world of Britannia,” Valiant Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons told io9. “Having the marketplace respond to a new character and a new concept with such enthusiasm has been invigorating and emboldened the entire team to take the next series into even more challenging territory. Antonius Axia is a vital and important new addition to the Valiant line, and his next adventure will be an investigation into an unthinkable mystery plaguing the dark heart of Rome, its gods, and its citizens.”

On April 26th, the gods stalk the world of men when the smash-hit, repeatedly sold-out series that pushed the boundaries of the Valiant Universe farther than ever before returns with a must-read new volume presented in the deluxe VALIANT PRESTIGE format in BRITANNIA: WE WHO ARE ABOUT TO DIE #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by Eisner Award winner Cary Nord (X-O Manowar, Conan), Eisner Award nominee David Mack (Daredevil), rising star Adam Gorham (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe), and Eisner Award winner Dave Johnson (100 Bullets)!

LION FORGE’s MAGNETIC COLLECTION kicks of 2017 with RENDEZ-VOUS IN PHOENIX & THE SOUND OF THE WORLD BY HEART

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE MAGNETIC COLLECTION FROM LION FORGE ENTERS 2017 WITH TWO BEAUTIFUL SOCIALLY RELEVANT GRAPHIC NOVELS

Tony Sandoval’s Rendez-vous in Phoenix and Giacomo Bevilacqua’s The Sound of the World By Heart Offer Two Unique Tales of Romance

JANUARY 10, ST. LOUIS, MO – As the world heads in to 2017, and in a time of uncertainty, Lion Forge’s newly acquired boutique imprint announces two gorgeous works of graphic fiction told from two wholly unique perspectives.

First, the autobiographical account by the three-time Eisner-nominated writer/artist Tony Sandoval was quietly released last year amidst threats of a border wall between the US and Mexico in the US presidential election. Rendez-vous in Phoenix is an honest, true story that tackles the immigration issue through the eyes of love.

Tony Sandoval was born and raised in northwestern Mexico, where the temptation to cross the border into the US becomes a matter of the heart. Drawn by love, his urge to visit his American girlfriend can’t wait for the lengthy, frustrating visa process standing in the way of their relationship. So he makes the ultimate romantic gesture: smuggling himself across the border, despite the dangers he’ll face from the heat, coyotes, barbed wire, and—most daunting—the US border patrol…

“As wonderful as all of Tony’s works are,” says Mike Kennedy, Director of the Magnetic Collection, “Rendez-vous in Phoenix is a heartfelt, personal story from his youth that not only puts a human face on a volatile political hot-topic, but manages to do so in such a beautiful way.”

To celebrate its release, the Magnetic Collection has created a beautiful book trailer, which can be viewed here.

Another original graphic novel by Panda Likes creator Giacomo Bevilacqua, titled The Sound of the World By Heart, is a touching, vividly illustrated journey of the heart through modern New York City.

An experiment in social isolation turns into a journey of self-discovery as a photojournalist commits to spending sixty days in New York City without talking to a single person. More than just an exercise in observation and self-control, he’s hoping to forget a troubled past and mend a broken heart. But the city has a sneaky way of throwing the best-laid plans and noble efforts to waste, revealing secrets that lie right in front of him. All he has to do is open his eyes…

This beautiful new graphic novel is a unique tale of what it takes to find yourself—and maybe your soul mate—in the middle of a crowded, bustling modern world.

“Giacomo’s love letter to New York City is the kind that anyone can appreciate, whether you’ve ever been to New York or not,” continues Kennedy. “The delicate touch of magic he brings to this moving and beautiful story is truly remarkable.”

Tony Sandoval’s Rendez-vous in Phoenix is available now at your favorite comic shop or bookstore. Giacomo Bevilacqua’s The Sound of the World By Heart will be released in comic shops and bookstores everywhere on March 29. Both are presented in premium hardcover format, retailing for $19.99 and $24.99 respectively.

ALTERNA Comics to launch Newsprint line of $1 -$1.99 titles

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Nostalgic for the feel, smell, and look of comic books printed on Newsprint paper? Even more nostalgic for old school comic book prices?
You’re not alone. Alterna Comics is trying some new ideas, including the OLD idea of Newsprint.

That’s right, Alterna is planning a line of Newsprint comics, with 1st Black & White issues costing $1, and subsequent issues costing $1.50. Color Newsprint books will have a first issue price of $1.50, with subsequent issues cover priced at $1.99.  The line will be comprised of bi-monthly, quaterly and one-shot titles, due to start in Spring/Summer of 2017.

This will be interesting to watch, not just for the quality of the books printed this way, but to see how much of an effect this has on garnering new sales/readers. In a market flooded with titles by larger companies, smaller companies are often overlooked, even when the books are critically acclaimed or just appear interesting, because of cost. Especially when you consider that smaller companies often pay more than the mass produced competition from larger companies, who get better deals on their printing and distribution costs due to their high volume. This can level the playing field, and done right, give a smaller company an advantage in the new reader market.

For more info, and their new logo designs, check out the press release below.

This is the logo

Happy #IndieComicThursday!January 5th, 2017

New Year. New Logo. Newsprint.
For 10 years, Alterna Comics has produced over 50 different graphic novels for distribution in comic shops and bookstores. Now entering their 11th year, Alterna is announcing plans for a single issue lineup that will feature throwback style covers, a new logo, prices under $1.99 an issue, and the distant but familiar feel of newsprint.

 

Alterna publisher Peter Simeti explains, “When I fell in love with comics, it was an entire experience. The stories, the imagery, and the paper. There was almost nothing else like reading a comic book. It was a fragile thing, but durable at the same time. Printed on newsprint with a thin, but glossy, cover, you could roll the comic – not that you’d necessarily want to – and they were lightweight and had a floppy feel. The smell and feel of the pages is something that no longer occurs on the new comic book day release wall, yet it’s prevalent in back issue bins across the country. Our goal is to create a comic book that would “feel” like it just came out of a shop from 30 years ago.”

 

Alterna is a creator-owned company with an open door submissions policy. Known for producing the FUBAR series, THE CHAIR (which has been adapted to a film that stars the late Roddy Piper), the IF anthology, NOVO, LILITH DARK, MOTHER RUSSIA, CROAK, and many more. Alterna’s lineup has been an eclectic one over the past ten years.

 

Simeti not only aims to replicate the feel of yesteryear’s comic books, but also the pricing, “While most companies seem to be trying to out do each other with premium paper stocks and escalating price tags, we’re aiming to make comics affordable and bring back a practicality to single issues. We’re not in the business of making collectibles first and comics second. These won’t be variant covers or variant issues, just basic comic books. We’re happy to leave the premium paper stocks to our graphic novel line, which we will still be producing. Right now, we’re aiming to launch this line with a few different price points. The first issues of every black and white series will be priced at $1.00 with subsequent issues being priced at $1.50.  The first issues of every color series will be priced at $1.50 with subsequent issues being priced at $1.99.  We’re aiming to launch this line in Spring/Summer 2017 with most books being bi-monthly limited series titles, one-shots, and a few quarterly titles.”

Release:
Valiant is proud to present your first look inside DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN AND THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – the next essential standalone special torn from the pages of Valiant’s hit comics event! On February 8th, join rising star Scott Bryan Wilson (Batman Annual) and blockbuster artist Robert Gill (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior) as they lead the unshakable Shadowman to the front line of America’s last stand against the global Soviet Union! The Statue of Liberty has fallen and the streets of New York are plagued with Russian forces. Now, the only thing separating the United States from complete Soviet rule is the most unlikely soldier of all: Shadowman!

To save the devastated and oppressed island of New York, Jack Boniface might just have to annihilate it first – by leading an army of Deadside-spawned monstrosities onto the streets to fight the Soviets’ super-powered shock troops wherever they stand. But freedom fighters like the one they call Shadowman seldom get the happy ending they deserve…

On February 8th, follow the tragic tale of the Stalinverse’s darkest champion out of the sold-out pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 and into an all-out assault on the Big Apple, only in DIVINITY III: SHADOWMAN AND THE BATTLE OF NEW STALINGRAD #1 – featuring covers by Clayton Crain(4001 A.D.), Marco Rudy (Uncanny X-Men), Diego Bernard (Ninjak), Trevor Hairsine (Divinity) andKano (Daredevil)!

But first: The fight has already begun in DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of the winter’s major comics event from the visionary creative team of New York Times best-selling writerMatt Kindt (4001 A.D.) and blockbuster artist Trevor Hairsine (X-Men: Deadly Genesis), in stores now!

At the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union were racing to the stars. But, while America was aiming for the moon, Russia had its eyes on the cosmos. In secret, they launched a three-man mission into the far reaches of space. In the depths, they discovered something Unknown. Something that…changed them. Imbued with god-like powers, the long-lost cosmonauts returned home…only to discover that their old ideology, communism, lost the war to western capitalism in the decades since their journey first began. But now they have the power to change it all…

Earth has a new god. The world you know is gone. Welcome to the Stalinverse, comrade.

Then: The Stalinverse’s subversive spread continues with the first of four essential one-shots torn directly from the pages of DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4) as New York Times best-selling writerJeff Lemire (Bloodshot Reborn, Death of X) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (4001 A.D.) re-assign the KGB’s deadliest covert operative from Mother Russia to the mountains of Colorado in DIVINITY III: KOMANDAR BLOODSHOT #1 – on sale now!

Plus: Prepare to serve time with the Stalinverse’s newest enemies of the state in DIVINITY III: ESCAPE FROM GULAG 396 #1!  On March 15th, join rising star Eliot Rahal (The Paybacks, The Doorman) and acclaimed artist Francis Portela (Faith) as they sentence religious zealot Obadiah Archer and the unkillable libertine called Armstrong to a fate worse than death: A lifetime sentence in Gulag 396, the deadliest prison known to man. But in letting these two subversive criminal offenders into its walls, has this oppressive Gulag condemned Archer and Armstrong…or itself?

Peter David & Mark Bagley return BEN REILLY to his SCARLET SPIDER roots

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Ben Riley is the clone The Jackal made, who thought he was Peter Parker, then thought he was a clone, then died, then was back, then thought he was Peter again, then found out he was a clone, then died, then came back and  became The Jackal. Well, in a semi-spoiler for the current CLONE CONSPIRACY storyline in Dan Slott’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Marvel has revealed that after that wraps up, Ben Riley (or a clone thereof) will pick back up his old mantle of SCARLET SPIDER for a new ongoing by fan favorites Peter David and Mark Bagley.

Marvel even provided an image, featuring the Scarlet Spider’s new look, a sleeker variation on his 90’s outfit. Oh, and his mask smiles.

BEN REILLY: THE SCARLET SPIDER Returns For All-New Series!

The Fan-Favorite Character Goes Solo in April

New York, NY—January 9th, 2017 — This April, one of the most controversial characters in Marvel history returns to don the mask (and hoodie!) once more. Today, Marvel is pleased to announceBEN REILLY: THE SCARLET SPIDER #1 – the new series from New York Times Bestselling creators Peter David (Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099) and Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man, All-New X-Men)! That’s right, Ben Reilly is webslinging his way back into comic shops everywhere later this year and he’s bringing two of the most accomplished & beloved Spider-Man creators of all-time with him! Only question is – will it be as a hero…or a villain?

It was the twist that shocked the world. Ben Reilly had returned, but not as he once was. Twisted and manipulated by the villainous Jackal, the fallen clone is out to break the cycle, and reclaim his destiny. Not as Peter Parker’s clone – but as his own man. Will suiting up once more as the Scarlet Spider be enough to outrun his personal demons? All while being able to stay one step ahead of the man hunting him – Kaine Parker – the former Scarlet Spider?!

“This book is not your usual Spider-Fare,” says Executive Editor, VP of Content & Digital Publishing Nick Lowe. “Peter David and Mark Bagley are taking this character into uncharted territory that’s both rip-roaring and troubling.”

His old life is over. It’s time for a new beginning. But can you ever truly outrun your past? Find out as the iconic fan-favorite character returns to the fore once again in BEN REILLY: THE SCARLET SPIDER #1 – coming this April!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

After the war with the INHUMANS, Marvel has promised a return to basics for the X-Men franchise. The team will be super heroes again, not just angsty rebels fighting for mutant causes.  The two new twice-monthly titles will be Guggenheim & Syaf’s X-MEN GOLD, with Kitty Pryde leading rebranded Rachel Grey, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Storm and Old Man Logan; while Bunn and Molina will handle X-MEN BLUE, with the rather interesting concept of Magneto playing Professor X to the time-lost, teenage versions of the original line-up, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Ice-Man, Beast, and Angel.

PRESS RELEASE:

X-MEN GOLD & X-MEN BLUE – Characters, Creators & More Revealed!

New Comics Launching as Part of ResurrXion

New York, NY—November 28th, 2016 — A bright new tomorrow is coming for the Children of the Atom as the X-Men race full speed into ResurrXion! From the ashes of Inhumans vs. X-Men comes your first details about the highly anticipated new titles – X-MEN GOLD and X-MEN BLUE! Launching in April, these multi-shipping, ongoing series bring fans a new beginning for these merry mutants – one that is sure to please fans old and new!

“Following an era where the X-Men were on the back foot, fighting for the survival of their species, we wanted to take a moment to exhale and indulge in the kinds of big, beautiful, colorful stories that portray the X-Men at their best,” says Editor Daniel Ketchum. “It’s a return to form, with spandex costumes rather than body armor, softball games on the school lawn, and the X-Men on a proactive mission to be the greatest heroes of all time—to human and mutant alike.”

It all kicks off in X-MEN GOLD #1, as creators Marc Guggenheim (X-Men, Young X-Men) and Ardian Syaf (Green Lantern) bring together the X-Men’s biggest guns for an all-new adventure! Kitty Pryde has returned to Earth to find the X-Men in shambles. They survived their war with the Inhumans, but at a great cost. They’ve earned their future, now what are they going to do with it? Kitty takes the reigns and assembles a team of the most iconic X-Men to her side – Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan and Rachel Grey. They are the X-Men, and they’re here to take mutantkind into the future and make the world a better place!

Then, fan-fave creators Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men, Monsters Unleashed) and Jorge Molina (A-Force, Star Wars) bring the time-displaced original X-Men together once more in X-MEN BLUE #1! With Jean Grey at the helm, Cyclops, Beast, Iceman and Angel will set out to embody Xavier’s dream – to foster a world that no longer hates and fears them. But they’ll have help from none other than…Magneto?! Why would these X-Men ally themselves with the man they once swore to defeat? Can the former mutant terrorist truly be trusted? The X-Men are young, but they aren’t stupid. Keep your enemies close, after all…

This is just the beginning! The future of the X-Men is bright, and it’s all beginning this Spring as RessurXion brings you a brand-new line of X-Men titles. Be there when it all kicks off in April when both X-MEN GOLD #1 and X-MEN BLUE #1 come to comic shops and digital devices everywhere! For more information on ResurrXion, visit Marvel.com.
