Bachman’s Best – Birthright #8

Facebooktwitterredditmail

birthright01

The best thing I read last week was Birthright #8.

Written by Joshua Williamson

Lines by Andrei Bressan

Color Art by Adriano Lucas and

Letters by Pat Brosseau

Month in and month out this title continues to be one to look forward to and a highlight each month in my pull list. Birthright is the best new fantasy story I have picked up since East of West. In 8 issues Williamson has done plenty of world building and filled the pages with action. It’s fast paced, beautiful, and filled with original creatures and fantastic ideas.

It is a hard book to talk about because when you start reading it you think it fits very nicely into a tried and true cliche fantasy story but then you hit the twist. And it’s a good one, not going to spoil it but it sets the story on it’s head and leaves the reader reeling for many issues. There’s not another book I read each month that seems so jam packed with story and yet so short, it’s always sad to reach the end and face another month long wait, and also so completely worth it to dive back in each month and follow the continuing adventures.

birthright__1

The beauty of Bressan’s lines and the power of Lucas’s colors flipping from dangerous darks to powerful neons is a stunning combination. As great as Williamson’s story is I’m betting Image could still do well selling this books with just the art and no words on the page.

Go out and hit your LCS and find the first issue. It went to multiple printings and shouldn’t be too hard to find. Or better yet, if you’ve come to trust my judgement go grab the Birthright vol 1 trade paperback. It’s Image’s standard $9.99 for a first volume which is how they get you hooked but believe me it’s worth it. It’ll be the best $10 you spend until the next Avengers film comes out.

LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE: The end begins in April

Facebooktwitterredditmail

This is it! The final chapter of Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore’s runaway classic, LUTHER STRODE saga is hitting the shelves in April!

Check out the full release below.

LUTHER STRODE RETURNS
The LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE
marks the final chapter to the popular series
Justin Jordan (SPREAD, LUTHER STRODE) and Tradd Moore (LUTHER STRODE, All New Ghost Rider) reunite for LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE, the final chapter in the popular LUTHER STRODE trilogy, set to launch from Image Comics on April 1.

For five years, Luther Strode and Petra have been on the run. Now the time for running is over, and the Murder Cult is going down. The road to Cain starts here in the double-sized debut of LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1.

“This is what we’ve been building to. All those questions? They get answered here,” said Jordan. “This is Luther Strode taken worldwide. We’re going bigger, crazier and bloodier than before, and there’s no guarantees anyone is making it out alive.”

Readers first met Luther Strode in THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE. Just an average nerd, Luther Strode sends away for a bodybuilding course from an old comic book—one that ends up working a lot better than he ever imagined. Though his newfound strength and strange talents make school a lot easier, they’ve also caused some very, very bad people to take a very, very keen interest in him.

In the follow-up, THE LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE, Luther became more than a nightmare for the evil men in his city… he became a legend. He found himself hunted by a legendary killer and ended up with a measure of redemption and a new mission in life: stop the people that made him what he is.

LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE takes Petra and Luther across the world, from Russia to Hong Kong to some place east of Eden, hunting for the man who started all of this: Cain himself. The story ends here.

The double-sized LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1 will land in stores on April 1 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code FEB150498.

ABOUT IMAGE COMICS

Image has since gone on to become one of the largest comics publishers in the United States. Image currently has five partners: Robert Kirkman, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino. It consists of five major houses: Todd McFarlane Productions, Top Cow Productions, Shadowline, Skybound and Image Central.

For more information, visit www.imagecomics.com.

Image offers mail-order subscription service.

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Image announced today that they will be offering 12-issues subscriptions to their full line of titles (see official release, below).

Not only can you have Image comics shipped monthly to your home, but you get a 30% discount when you do. 35% if you subscribe to EVERY Image title.

The release goes on to mention how there are less Comic Shops then there back in the market’s heyday. The also cite people being in areas without comic shops and not all of their titles finding their way onto shelves at every shop as reasons for the launch.

Not sure what impact, if any, this will have on direct market stores that DO stock all of Image’s books.  We’ll have to watch and see.

 

IMAGE COMICS LAUNCHES MAIL-ORDER
SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE: IMAGE DIRECT
Customers can now opt to purchase 12-issue subscriptions to their favorite Image comics and have them mailed to their door
Image Comics is pleased to announce Image Direct, a newly launched mail-order subscription service that allows fans to purchase 12-issue subscriptions to their favorite Image comics and have them delivered straight to their doorstep. Image Direct serves continental U.S. customers only. Subscribe here: http://subscriptions.imagecomics.com/.

Image Direct will allow subscribing readers to receive the latest issues of over 35 titles, including THE WALKING DEAD, SAGA, SEX CRIMINALS, WYTCHES, BLACK SCIENCE, VELVET, RAT QUEENS and more, immediately upon release. Subscribers will receive discounts of up to 30% off and will have the option to subscribe to every available title and receive 35% off.

“Even with all the wonderful work our retailer partners in the Direct Market do, the number one comment we get from fans is they frequently can’t find the Image titles they’re looking for,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “Given that there are fewer comic book stores than ever before, we’re hoping that Image Direct makes our titles available to fans who don’t have easy access to a local comic book store, or whose shop doesn’t carry the full range of Image titles.”

Image Direct launches today. Readers interested in subscribing to the service can find more information on how to sign up here: http://subscriptions.imagecomics.com/.

Image reveals SECRET IDENTITIES

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Image has sent us the full PRESS RELEASE for SECRET IDENTITIES from Brian Joines, Jay Faerber, and Charlie Kirchoff.  Check it out.

 

SECRET IDENTITIES SERIES UNMASKED
An all-new superhero series by Faerber and Joines takes flight
Fan favorite writers Brian Joines (KRAMPUS!, Noble Causes) and Jay Faerber (COPPERHEAD, GRAVEYARD SHIFT) team up with artists Ilias Kyriazis (Blood Opera, Manifesto) and Charlie Kirchoff (Doctor Who) to introduce readers to their new favorite supergroup, The Front Line, in SECRET IDENTITIES—coming from Image Comics this February.In SECRET IDENTITIES #1, the supergroup known as The Front Line has just invited the new hero Crosswind to join them. But what they don’t know is that Crosswind is a mole, sent to learn all their secrets. And the Front Line has LOTS of secrets…”Brian and I have been friends for a long time, and one of our common interests is super-heroes,” said Faerber. “So it only made sense that our first writing collaboration would be on a project like this. And Ilias’ art is explodes off the page, mixing a classic super-hero style with an alternative sensibility.”

“It’s great to be dipping my toe into super-hero waters,” added Joines. “And to be doing it with someone with a track record like Jay is a true thrill. On top of that, watching Ilias bring these characters, some of whom have been warming the bench in my head for a very long time, to life with such vibrant style and energy… absolutely amazing.”

While issue #1 introduces Crosswind as a traitor, what readers won’t know is what form his betrayal will take. When will he turn on the team? How will he do it? While he bides his time gaining their trust, he must also learn to act like a hero. Is there a chance that acting like a hero will actually turn him into one?

SECRET IDENTITIES #1 lands in stores on 2/18 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code DEC140617.
