Fans who visit the Radical booth will find the company’s complete library of titles, including HOTWIRE: REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD #1, from Steve Pugh & Warren Ellis, and SHRAPNEL: ARISTEIA RISING #2, both released early exclusively for the show.
There are comics scheduled to arrive on December 24, and Image has a couple you’ll want to check out.Â Take the jump for a sneak peek of Invincible #57, the Parade (with Fireworks) trade paperback, Savage #3, and The Walking Dead Omnibus Volume 2.
11 December 2008 (Berkeley, CA) – Image Comicsâ€™ Shadowline is proud to announce two of their newest and most diverse debuts, SAVAGE and I HATE GALLANT GIRL, have completely sold-out at a distribution level.
“Shadowline’s steadfast commitment to diversity is what drives the entire imprint,” Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino said. “Having two completely different titles reach a similar success simultaneously is a very important occasion for us and one we hope drives readers to future issues of these wonderful books.”
SAVAGE teams horror master Steve Niles with celebrated painted artist Mike Mayhew along with Dan Wickline and Jeff Frank to craft a hardcore thriller pitting werewolves against Bigfoot in an intense battle royale. On the other hand,Â I HATE GALLANT GIRL, a runner-up in the Who Wants To Create A Superheroine Contest by writer Kat Cahill and artist Seth Damoose, takes a very different approach at the super-hero genre as a young woman rejected to be the world’s next Gallant Girl decides to take destiny into her own hands. Limited quantities of both issues may still be available at your local comic book store.
SAVAGE #2 (SEP082267) and I HATE GALLANT GIRL #2 (OCT082311), both 32-page full color comic books for $3.50, are in stores now.
Unlike press releases from other companies announcing sold out issues, Image/Shadowline has not stated if it will go back to press with either of these titles.Â Guess you better scramble and check the bins at your local comic shop if you wnat to check these out.Â If you want a taste of I Hate Gallant Girl, check out the Major Spoilers review.
Image Comics has provided Major Spoilers with a sneak peek at the titles arriving in stores next week.Â Take the jump for Brit #10, Golly #3, Proof #14, Savage #2, The Walking Dead #55, and Transhuman #4.
Orwell was right. So was Stoker, and probably Seuss too.
I imagine that as my son grows older heâ€™ll have just as wild an imagination as his father – or even more so.Â I see the signs now as he plays and talks, but I wonder what would happen if imagination were outlawed?Â Would I break the law so my son could hear about the adventures of Superman, fables of the tortoise and the hare, or even the monsters that lurk under the bed?Â Probably.Â And if I lived in the City of Dust Iâ€™d be arrested quicker than those idiots you see on Cops.
Radical Publishing has sent Major Spoilers the cover images and solicitation information for the two titles arriving in January 2009.
