When the world’s deadliest, stealthiest, and most infamous assassins need a place to educate their children, an institution that respects and upholds their values, they turn to the prestigious School of Five Weapons. At the setting of the new Image Comics/Shadowline mini-series by Jimmie Robinson (BOMB QUEEN), FIVE WEAPONS, students train in the martial arts, pledging their loyalty to one “club”: Knives, Staves, Archery, Exotics, and Guns.
This February, Image Comics invites readers to jump on board action and adventure, newly reinvigorated with a very special adjective – THE UNCANNY SKULLKICKERS!
Rick the Stick is next in line in the Five Weapons series from Image Comics.
Here’s a great teaser image we received in the mail a few moments ago that totally tweaks the nose of Marvel’s Marvel NOW! teaser campaign.
Diamond Select Toys has released images of the next round of The Walking Dead Minimates, that features Michone, Andrea, Morgan, and a horde of the undead.
Eisner-nominated artist M.K. Perker and award-winning writer Ken Kristensen announced today that their comic book Todd, The Ugliest Kid On Earthlaunches January 16, 2013 via Image Comics. Todd, a collision of comedy, sex, and violence, follows the misadventures of America’s most dysfunctional family as they go head-to-severed head with an Oprah-loving ax murderer, a cult-crazy soap opera star, and a neo-Nazi prison gang. The full-color four-issue mini series will hit comic stores January 16th in both digital and print formats.
As each of the teaser images for the upcoming Five Weapons series arrives in my email box, I keep getting the feeling that the book is taking the concepts behind Morning Glories and twisting them. Or maybe it is just because the characters are being introduced in the same mysterious fashion.
Image Comics continues the Five Weapons teasers, with this interesting image for Joon the Loon.
