Revival Raises Money For CBLDF With New Liberty Variant at C2E2!
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Image Comics are thrilled to announce that REVIVAL #9 will be the next issue joining the prestigious CBLDF Liberty Variant program! Premiering this week at C2E2, this CBLDF Liberty Variant edition of the latest installment of the rural noir hit boasts a gorgeous cover by Seeley and is strictly limited to 500 copies. Copies of the REVIVAL #9 Liberty Variant will be available for donations of $10 each for CBLDF members and $20 each for non-members. Tim Seeley will be signing copies of the book to benefit CBLDF this Saturday, April 27 from 12 - 1 PM at CBLDF booth 837.
“Without the CBLDF’s work, I wouldn’t be making comics today,” said series writer and co-creator Tim Seeley. “Their efforts to speak out for creators and to push back when groups look to censor our stories make it possible for guys like me to create the stories that matter to us. With the my home city of Chicago currently involved in banning the acclaimed graphic novel Persepolis, I’m glad to give back to help the CBLDF in their efforts to protect the freedom to read comics.”
REVIVAL follows the events following a day in a small Wisconsin town when the dead returned to life — not as zombies, but seemingly unchanged and ready to return to their lives. But as time goes on, it soon becomes apparent that their resurrections have changed “Revivers,” and Officer Dana Cypress, assigned to aid the feds in their investigation, will find that the ramifications of Revival Day touch her far more closely than she thought.
To get your copy of Revival #9 Liberty Variant, please visit CBLDF booth 837 at C2E2!
FIVE GHOSTS’ SECOND ACT GETS SECOND PRINTING
Second consecutive issue of pulp adventure comic sells out
The second issue of the pulp-inspired Image Comics series FIVE GHOSTS: THE HAUNTING OF FABIAN GRAY by Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham has sold out the same week as its release and has immediately gone back to press. The second printing (Diamond code MAR13813) will be in stores on May 15, a week before FIVE GHOSTS #3.
The first issue of FIVE GHOSTS also sold out. Its second printing was in stores alongside #2 on April 17. The praise received for the first issue has continued along with the supernatural story of a man possessed by five spirits, each a literary archetype, that imbue him with their skills:
“Five Ghosts is probably the most fun comic you will read this year. Barbiere has crafted a story that thrives on the page, and is nothing but a pleasure to read. An insanely original concept weaved around a globe trotting adventure make for an issue that is impossible to set down. All things combined make for one of the best books out there today.”
- Bloody Disgusting
“This is a book with a great premise that actually delivers on it and reads great all the way through.”
- Multiversity Comics
“…a seamless continuation of the exciting first issue, with even more emphasis on the action and the same consistently brilliant illustration.”
- Comic Bastards
“With an original story created by an inspired and skilled team, there’s no question in my mind why Image chose to support this project before someone else did.”
- Geeks of Doom
Needless to say, the past 24 hours following the availability of SAGA #12 digitally have been quite exhausting. We’re pleased to see the issues related to this have been resolved by our digital comics partner Comixology and Apple. Earlier today, SAGA writer Brian K. Vaughan issued the following statement:
“I wanted to apologize to everyone for this entire SAGA #12 kerfuffle. Yesterday, I was mistakenly led to believe that this issue was solely with Apple, but it’s now clear that it was only ever Comixology too conservatively interpreting Apple’s rules. I’m truly sorry. I never thought either company was being homophobic, only weirdly inconsistent about what kind of adult material was permissible. I’m grateful that the situation was cleared up so quickly, and I’m delighted I can go back to reading smutty comics on my Retina Display iPad.
—Brian K. Vaughan”
Sometimes good things come from challenging situations…
We’re pleased to update everyone that SAGA #12, written by Brian K. Vaughan and art by Fiona Staples, is now available in the Image Comics iOS application and available for purchase and your reading enjoyment.
Additionally, SEX #1, the hit new comic from writer Joe Casey and art by Piotr Kowalski, which was released in March and previously unavailable to iOS users, is also now available for you purchase and enjoy in the privacy of your home, or anywhere your iPad takes you.
And as if that wasn’t enough, one of our favorite mini-series from back in 2007, XXXOMBIES, written by Rick Remender with art by Kieron Dwyer and covers by Tony Moore, is also now available for purchase and your sick, sick reading enjoyment.
All three series as well hundreds of others can be purchased in the Image Comics digital comics web store or in the Image Comics iOS application.
We look forward to releasing more mature material to the iOS platform in the weeks to come.
Here are the covers to the books released by Image Comics on April 10th. Gotta collect them all!
