Tutte le novità previste negli USA a gennaio targate Image Comics.
Con l’ufficializzazione delle uscite previste per gennaio in America apprendiamo che Image Comics lancerà 2 nuove serie:
STORY: SINGGIH NUGROHO
ART: SAMI BASRI
COVER: VARSAM KURNIA
In an alternate world where Earth is populated with powerful human-spirit hybrids called Fantasmen, Folke and Roisia Herviett, two siblings with opposing worldviews, are challenged to prove their worth and take up their parents’ positions in a devious group who secretly run the world. Meanwhile, Seraphim, a Fantasmen warrior guard, is sent to prevent a catastrophic event from affecting the Earth and its own universe.
ICE CREAM MAN #1
STORY: W. MAXWELL PRINCE
ART / COVER: MARTIN MORAZZO, CHRIS O’HALLORAN
VARIANT COVER: FRAZER IRVING
Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy…there’s a flavor for everyone’s misery. ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate “one-shot” tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man—a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers—lickety split!—can change the course of your life forever.
Due invece le mini-serie in partenza:
THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON #1 (OF 5)
STORY: EDDIE GORODETSKY& MARC ANDREYKO
ART: STEVE SADOWSKI
COVER: PETE WOODS
VARIANT COVER: IAN CHURCHILL
“THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON” From Eisner and Emmy-winning writers! For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punchline. By the time we pick up his story, he is not yet 30 and barely an answer in a trivia contest. Faced with a life in a rear-view mirror full of lost powers, faded glory, former enemies, ex-girlfriends, and forgotten grudges, Nick struggles to figure out who he is today. Packing on an extra 20 pounds and peering through a medicinal marijuana haze, he is trying to build a future when all that’s left is just a man who hasn’t been super for a very long time. These are THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON.

In the spirit of essayist David Sedaris and monologist Spalding Grey, SEAGLE and 19 emerging global cartoonists take drawn storytelling into the world of the “graphic essay.” 19 stories of global attitudes about the naked body balance raw comedy, raw emotions, and raw cartooning. SEAGLE honestly chronicles his place as an undressed metaphorical fish out of water on different continents—from not recognizing a famous naked celeb in Hollywood to being naked and eaten by actual fish in Tokyo.
