There were so many great announcements from today’s event, but the ones I’m most looking forward to is Blackbird by Humphries and Bartel:
It follows a young woman named Nina who discovers a neon-lit world of magic masters in Los Angeles. Now they’ve kidnapped her sister, and Nina is the only one who can save her.
Dead Guy Fan Club by Annie Wu:
In this new series, the founders of a rock star’s fan club reunite in adulthood to investigate the suspicious death of their hero and the involvement of an unhinged member of their old flock.
Lastly, Death or Glory by Remender and Bengal:
In order to pay for her beloved, dying Father’s surgery, Glory has three days to pull off a four dangerous cross country heists with mob killers, crooked cops and a psycho ex-husband all out to bring her in or die trying.
One thing to note is that, while I know the stories themselves will be great, it’s the art that attracts me to these books, having followed Bartel and Bengal’s work for years online and Wu from her work on Hawkeye and Black Canary.
2018 is shaping up to be yet another great year for Image comic fans.
