Independent comic creators and companies have always looked out for each other, and Image Comics, Skybound Entertainment, and Humble Bundle are continuing this tradition by raising money to help out independent book and comic stores and comic industry veterans in a time of crisis.
Courtesy of Image Comics, writer Pornsak Pichetshote and colorist/editor José Villarrubia took some time out of their busy schedules at New York Comic Con 2019 to meet with ua and reflect on the incredible series their team (including artist Aaron Campbell and letterer/designer Jeff Powell) created.
Not many people in May of 1992 would have believed that a character that debuted as one of the cornerstones of an upstart comic book company, Image Comics, would make it all the way to 2019 with 300 issues of his flagship title alone.
Most horror comics fall into three broad categories: Tales from the Crypt style shockers, creature features, and gore fests. Very few are able to incorporate horror elements and topical subtext to transcend the genre, but Image Comics Infidel by Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell certainly does.
Image’s new horror series Infidel is one that will appeal to fans of atmospheric horror stories as well as those who enjoy smart, socially conscious writing about the real fears that are created through prejudice and ignorance.
Fans of his work on the Mignolaverse will be happy to hear that Arcudi is about ready to start a second run on his critically acclaimed Image Comics title Rumble. Rumble is the story of an ancient warrior who, after being resurrected into the body of a scarecrow, embarks on a quest to find his actual physical form in a modern day urban setting.
