Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of theOni Press comic book titles that were released yesterday, June 8, 2016. I’m really digging the Merry Men #1 this week, what a fun twist with a bit of historical theory!
After one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns EVER, Image Comics is teaming with God Hates Astronauts creator Ryan Browne to bring the beloved web comic to comic shops everywhere this October!
How do you take advantage of a doorway to Hell underneath your home? In Heck, a graphic novel from creator Zander Cannon and Top Shelf Productions, two men will come face to face with such a decision; but the results will be dangerous as heck.
Hector “Heck” HammarskjÃ¶ld was the captain of the football team in high school and an all-around popular guy; people looked up to him and he knew it. Now, Heck feels like a washed up small-town hero with those around him still praising him for his glory days. When his father passes away, Heck inherits his old man’s home. While cleaning it out with Elliot — a “nerd” who has admired Heck since high school — they stumble upon a secret that will forever change their lives: the house rests above a gateway to Hell.
For the past six years, writer/artist Ryan Browne has been hard at work creating one of the most fun, unique, and critically acclaimed web comics out there, God Hates Astronauts. And now it’s finally finished and ready to be delivered right to your door as a fancy 180-page hardcover collection, after a Kickstarter campaign to secure the funding necessary to actually print it.
Not satisfied with just sending his already done files off to the printer, Browne has went back and make some coloring tweaks and BRAND NEW lettering. He also got some fantastic creators to draw 18 two page origin stories for some of the characters in the book. Artists like Tim Seeley, Jenny Frison, Tradd Moore, Christopher Mitten, Zandor Cannon…the list goes on and on.
