Preview: Ivar, Timewalker #5

Timewalker! Armstrong! The Eternal Warrior The Lurker! Still confused by time travel? Don’t worry, these guys don’t understand it either…so they’re BREAKING HISTORY!

Valiant has released an advance preview of Ivar, Timewalker #5 – the FIRST ISSUE of “Breaking History,” an all-new story arc by writer Fred Van Lente and new series artist Francis Portela! Start reading here with a brand new jumping-on point on May 27th as Ivar Anni-Padda recruits a team of the time stream’s greatest hell raisers for an eons-colliding jailbreak from the end of existence itself!

Dr. Neela Sethi, the inventor of time travel has been captured by her evil future-self (because…time travel) and imprisoned at the end of the time! As the Big Crunch rapidly unmakes the universe around her, Neela faces a choice that may give her her life’s dreams…at the cost of the very universe itself. But to save her from the threat of her own future self, all hope now lies in the hands of IVAR, TIMEWALKER! But even he can’t save us alone…

What happens when history’s most jaded time traveler puts together the best team he can find to save time itself? A combination of his estranged family, including his immortal brothers ARMSTRONG and the ETERNAL WARRIOR; his inter-dimensional enemies like history’s most re-tweeted prankster THE LURKER; and a BLOODSHOT NANITE with one heck of an attitude problem! And that’s just the start of history’s most unexpected saviors.

Featuring covers by Steve Lieber, Raul Allen, Clayton Henry, and Robert Gill, come on board here with an excellent new jumping-on point!

String Divers Loom Large at IDW

String DiversAcclaimed artist/designer Ashley Wood is preparing to launch his latest comic-book project at IDW this summer with String Divers, a comic series blending a team of robot adventures and string-theory physics! String Divers, directed and overseen by Wood and written by Wood’s Zombies vs. Robots co-creator Chris Ryall, features stunning artwork by Nelson Daniel and a concept that grows bigger the smaller it gets!

Spun out of Ashley Wood’s 3A Toys’ line of titular figures, String Divers incorporates string theory as threats to our universe at the sub-microscopic level have dire and lasting repercussions in our universe and across all dimensions.

Ashley Wood will be providing story direction, concept design, art direction and covers for String Divers. Wood and Ryall are joined by Nelson Daniel, fresh off a long run on IDW’s Judge Dredd, on art. Daniel, who previously partnered with Ryall on the Stephen King/Joe Hill project, Road Rage, will again be providing art and colors on both interiors and variant covers of each issue.

DEAD HAND means death!

In the far reaches of deep space, the ultimate fail-safe of an extinct alien race has finally counted down to zero…and the robot army called DEAD HAND has been activated. The civilization that built them has fallen…and, now, to combat the doomsday threat that destroyed their world, DEAD HAND will complete the mission that their creators could not. Soulless and brutal, this billion strong legion is the phantom army of a dead world…and it will cleanse the universe by any means necessary. But what unthinkable menace were they created to destroy? And will DEAD HAND’s slow march across the galaxy spell death for countless worlds?

Soon, Aric of Dacia will be forced to confront the secrets that have pushed him to the terrible turning point that is DEAD HAND…and battle a single-minded killing machine unlike any he has seen before! Outmatched and vastly outnumbered, how can Aric stop something unstoppable…something that knows no fear, only eradication?

A Dangerous Odyssey Across Battleworld in Red Skull #1!

Hushed whispers cut across Battleworld. One of the most vile villains in history still draws breath. But how can this be? He should be dead! And yet his legend grows even larger in the pages of Red Skull #1 – a brand new Secret Wars limited series beginning this July! Writer Josh Williamson and artist Luca Pizzari bring you a twisted tale from the bowels of Battleworld!

The Red Skull should be dead. Banished beyond the Shield long ago, if the zombies haven’t gotten to him, the Ultron robots or Annihilation bugs should have! Any yet word has reached the other side that he still lives, quietly amassing his forces, prepared to strike!

Now, a team of unlikely villains – Magneto, Winter Soldier, Lady Deathstrike, Electro, Moonstone and Jack O’Lantern will venture beyond safety to find the truth for themselves. Only problem – beyond the Shield, nobody ever comes back alive!

In an interview with Marvel, Williamson said:

I’ll be honest, this book is super dark. It matches what you’d expect a book based around someone as horrible as the Red Skull. Prepare for a very twisted tale. If you’re a fan of my books you know I enjoy writing some pretty dark characters in some very messed up situations. Marvel has let me do that here as well.

Witness the true horrors of Battleworld this July!

Onyx Lands at IDW this Summer

onyxChris Ryall and Gabriel Rodriguez, the award-winning creators of series such as Locke & Key and Zombies vs. Robots are releasing their first co-creation, Onyx, this summer.

Onyx tells the tale of a female metal-suited warrior who comes to Earth on a quest to either save the planet or destroy it. It’s up to a team of super-soldiers to figure out which before it’s too late, and before a much greater threat overwhelms both them and the planet itself.

Comics readers will be introduced to Onyx in a standalone 5-page story, Onyx #0, that will be included as a free bonus story in many of IDW’s May titles, including The Transformers, Dirk Gently, Star Trek, and many others. This five-pager by Ryall and Rodriguez introduces the character in a deep space setting and serves to set the table for the adventures to follow in July’s Onyx #1 and beyond.

Onyx #1 (of 4) will feature a unique cover plan to help kick it off, too. In addition to Rodriguez’s stunning cover image, Onyx #1 will also feature covers by Ryall’s ZvR co-creator Ashley Wood, a “plush” version of the character by Charles Paul Wilson III, an EC Comics homage cover as part of IDW’s EC Comics tribute month by Alan Robinson, and an incentive cover by Sal Buscema.

Ryall and Rodriguez have previously partnered on multiple comic series: Clive Barker’s The Great and Secret Show, George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead, and Beowulf, but this is the first time they’ve created an all-new title together. For Rodriguez, Onyx follows his work on the acclaimed, Eisner-winning series Locke & Key with writer Joe Hill, and the just-concluded Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland with writer Eric Shanower.

Onyx #1, one of IDW’s Five Featured Firsts in July which welcomes a new #1 issue each week of the month!
