IMAGE COMICS: KICK-ASS TRADE PAPERBACKS FIND NEW HOME AT IMAGE COMICS

KICK-ASS TRADE PAPERBACKS FIND NEW HOME AT IMAGE COMICS

PORTLAND, OR, 11/21/2017 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that the bestselling trade paperback collections of the hit comic book series, KICK-ASS by comic book legends Mark Millar (KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, HIT-GIRL) and artist John Romita Jr., will find a new home at Image Comics. KICK-ASS, VOL. 1-4 of the trade paperbacks will hit stores this February 2018—just in time for the February 10th anniversary of the series.

The beloved KICK-ASS series introduces teen comic book nerd Dave Lizewski, who dons his homemade Kick-Ass costume and takes to the streets of NYC to fight the city's hardest criminals. This New York Times bestseller became a worldwide phenomenon overnight, spending three months at the top spot on the Diamond Direct Market chart and spawning the KICK-ASS movie that opened at No.1 in the box office.

To celebrate the launch of the new KICK-ASS series, all four volumes of KICK-ASS: THE DAVE LIZEWSKI YEARS are being released through Image Comics. Relive what happens when Dave Lizewski asks himself "How come nobody's ever become a superhero before?" and makes his teenage superhero daydreams an ass-kicking reality.

A new ongoing monthly KICK-ASS comic by the series’ original creative team will launch concurrently with KICK-ASS: THE DAVE LIZEWSKI YEARS, VOL. 1-4 trade paperbacks all hitting stores from Image Comics. Two weeks later, superstar character Hit-Girl also gets her own monthly series from the creative team of Mark Millar and Ricardo Ortiz.

Kick-Ass is the biggest thing I’ve ever had my name on. It just went crazy, and I loved writing these four books. Launching the new Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl monthlies from Image is incredibly exciting for me, and it makes absolute sense to have remastered editions of the original graphic novels out from Image too, all tweaked and reworked inside with brand-new covers. I can’t wait for these, and I bloody wrote the things."

KICK-ASS trade paperbacks will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, February 14th and in bookstores on Tuesday, February 20th. The final order cutoff for comic shop retailers is Monday, January 8th

IMAGE COMICS WILL DENNIS STEPS UP AS VOLUNTEER EDITOR ON WHERE WE LIVE, COVER ART REVEALED, MORE CONTRIBUTORS ANNOUNCED

WILL DENNIS STEPS UP AS VOLUNTEER EDITOR ON WHERE WE LIVE, COVER ART REVEALED, MORE CONTRIBUTORS ANNOUNCED

PORTLAND, OR, 11/21/2017 — Image Comics is pleased to reveal the cover artwork for the WHERE WE LIVE anthology and welcome editor Will Dennis on board to volunteer his time curating and coordinating the project. WHERE WE LIVE will feature work from a wide range of comic creators—including Neil GaimanMike Mignola, and the previously announced Kurt Busiek and James Robinson—along with many more soon to be announced. Survivors of the attack will also contribute to the WHERE WE LIVE anthology.

“When Eric asked me to join the team, I was really overcome with emotion,” said Dennis. “The magnitude of this tragedy is incomprehensible and if i can help in any way to bring some small measure of relief to the survivors, I’m there without hesitation. There’s already been an amazing outpouring from creators and I’m certain the end result will be extremely powerful.”

“I couldn't be happier to have Will Dennis volunteering to take over this project with us,” said Williams. “This is such an important cause, and we are working hard to handle this subject in a powerfully meaningful way. One we hope that not only helps the Las Vegas shooting victims, but also helps push the conversation of the problems we face into a positive momentum.”

Stephenson added: “Gun violence should be abhorrent to all, so it was without hesitation that we agreed to publish this when Jim and Wendy Williams first approached Image about partnering on this project. Any shooting, regardless of the assailant or the number of victims, is a tragedy, and the fact that these incidents are happening with increasing frequency underscores the urgent need for everyone to be more fully aware of just what is at stake if some form of action isn’t taken.”

Dennis joins previously announced curators JH Williams III, Wendy Wright-Williams, Dave Stewart, and Image Comics’ Publisher, Eric Stephenson.

100% of the proceeds for the WHERE WE LIVE anthology will be donated to an existing GoFundMe for the survivors in Vegas, to be announced.

The book will include a variety of perspectives with key themes exploring: value of a compassionate society, need for communication/conversations, mental health stigmatization, access to healthcare, gun violence, common sense gun control, history of the 2nd Amendment, why the 2nd Amendment is important to gun owners, role of the NRA in national & local politics, balance of safety & privacy/freedoms, aftermath of tragedy and how individuals & communities persevere, role of the media in tragedies, ongoing need for survivor support, and appreciation of Las Vegas as a community.
