SDCC 2013: Skyward to Become Action Lab’s First Ongoing Series
Action Lab has announced that Jeremy Dale’s Skyward will become the first true ongoing title for the independent publisher. Scheduled to debut at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Skyward was originally envisioned as a six-issue mini-series, but it was decided, given the grand story that Dale wants to tell with the book, that an ongoing, sequentially-numbered title would be the best option.
In addition, each issue of Skyward, beginning with issue #3, will feature an alternate cover produced by some of the more popular and well-known artists in the industry. Confirmed guest cover artists include Stephane Roux for issue 3, Mike Norton for issue 4, Khary Randolph for issue 5, Randy Green for issue 6, Phil Noto for issue 7, and Chris Giarrusso for Issue 8.
There are number of other artists already lined up for future issues, including Brandon Peterson, Tim Seely, Todd Nauck, Cully Hamner, Gene Ha, and more.
Issues 1 and 2 will also feature alternate covers, but these will be available only at San Diego Comic Con. The issue 1 alternate has art by series creator Jeremy Dale, while issue 2’s alternate is a blank white sketch cover.
Beginning with issue 3, Skyward, and all Action Lab regular titles, will cost only $2.99, down from $3.99.
