Parade (with Fireworks) tells the history of a family on their journeys from an Italian countryside, to the coalmines of the American south, and the factories of the northeast. “This riveting new talent was brought to my attention by Shadowline editor, Kris Simon,” Shadowline President Jim Valentino explained. “Not only is a Michael a brilliant cartoonist,
If you can’t get enough Invincible, check out Robert Kirkman’s Capes Volume One: Punching the Clock. “While I’ve got my own personal sandbox of super-toys in Invincible, I ended up creating too many to fit in the box,” Kirkman explained. “The page of CAPES includes its own mammoth cast with their own personal dramas that deserved their own spotlight as opposed to the background of someone else’s book. I love this genre too much to limit it to just one title!” Sounds good to us Robert! Capes tells the story of Heroes on payroll who must punch the clock, take
