More ‘Image Comics’ Announcements Than you can Shake a Stick at

GameStop, Inc.

The Image Comics Expo happened late last week, and as ever there were a ton of announcements for new comics and graphic novels, as well as reprinta and new collected editions. Here are a bunch of those announcements all in one place. You’re welcome.

invincible124

Invincible is getting a reboot! The new direction for Image’s premiere superhero series starting with issue #124 finds our hero, Mark, powerless. He’s home and aware of everything he’s been through, but how can he be a hero without powers, and how will he deal with his father?

Invincible #124 hits shelves in October from regular creative team Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley, Cliff Rathburn, and Jean-Francois Beaulieu.

baboushka

A new series from Antony Johnston (Wasteland) asks the question, “What if the sexy Russian Bond girl was actually the hero?”

An action-packed modern pulp spy-thriller, Codename Baboushka: The Conclave of Death stars wealthy socialite, Contessa, who’s secretly a deadly assassin blackmailed by the U.S. government to do the jobs the CIA can’t sanction. She has nothing to lose, and everything to fight for.

“Codename Baboushka has everything you’d expect from me: a kick-ass female hero, bags of tension, and deep, dark secrets that everyone’s trying to figure out,” said Johnston. “But it’s also way more high-octane than anything I’ve done before, with guns, fists, and explosions everywhere!”

Codename Baboushka: The Conclave of Death hits shelves in October.

throwaways

And for those that like Cold War spy thrillers you won’t want to miss Throwaways, the story of two highly trained ex-subjects of MK ULTRA who’ve made it their life’s mission to bring down the supposedly closed program.

Written by Caitlin Kittredge with art by Steve Sanders, Throwaways looks at a future full of superpowered assassins, telepathic intelligence agents, and far-reaching, government-toppling conspiracies like you’ve never seen before.

campmidnight

Camp Midnight is an original graphic novel from Man of Action Studios’ Steven T. Seagle (It’s a Bird…) and The New Yorker artist Jason Adam Katzenstein. The book stars reluctant camper, Skye, who is accidentally sent to the wrong summer camp. Is it her over-active imagination, or are the other campers monsters? With only fellow camper Mia to trust, can she keep her human identity secret long enough to catch the bus home? And what about her boy crush who is far from her type?

“Camp Midnight is a brilliant graphic novel debut for cartoonist Jason Adam Katzenstein, and it’s the perfect book for readers who loved Raina Telgemeier’s Smile, but wished it had more bowls of gooey eyeballs during the dinner scenes,” said Seagle.

Camp Midnight comes out just in time for Halloween.

Ron Wimberly brings us the tale of a cartoonist who draws a macabre story from a collection of notes, journals, movies, and other ephemera he finds in a box, including an old Warhol vampire fil and what looks like a journal belonging to Jean Michel Basquiat, in his new studio in a gentrification heavy Brooklyn.

slavepunk

Also from Ron Wimberly comes Slave Punk: White Coal, a revisionist historical drama starring a genius slave who defied the powerful King Cotton and started the Civil War in an attempt to end slavery.

TOSpromo

Also announced was a deluxe edition collection of Jason Aaron, Cameron Stewart, and Dave McCaig’s Vietnam War-set psychological horror story, The Other Side. A story told from both the perspective of an American soldier and a North Vietnamese soldier, The Other Side takes a long, hard look at the horrors of war. Cameron Stewart famously visited Vietnam to see the country and give the story a sense of realism.

Also announced was Heartless, a modern folktale about love, revenge, and the deadly grip of the supernatural from Warren Ellis and Tula Lotay, Huck by Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque, a hardcover collection of Private Eye by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin with colors by Muntsa Vincente, Snotgirl by Bryan Lee O’Malley and Leslie Hung, psychological thriller Hadrian’s Wall by Kyle Higgins, Alec Siegel, and Rod Reis, Kaare Andrews’ first creator owned book The One%The Goddamned by Jason Aaron, Pia Guera, and Giulia Brusco, Gail Simone and Cat Staggs’ Crosswind, and Cry Havoc by Si Spurrier and Ryan Kelly.

So yeah, Image Comics will be getting all the monies.
