AfterShock Wants you to Read Dangerously in 2019

AfterShock Comics is prompting comic readers and fans to “Read Dangerously,” claiming 2019 as The Year of Reading Dangerously. Supported by a robust advertising and marketing campaign, this call to action will serve as the rallying cry behind all AfterShock brand activities and initiatives over the course of the year.

As publisher of many of the most talked about independent titles of the past few years – including Animosity, A Walk Through Hell, Dark Ark, and Babyteeth, AfterShock will push the envelope even further in 2019 with new releases and ongoing series that continue to thrill, chill and challenge – both imaginations and sensibilities. 

Working with top writers, artists and some of the brightest new stars in the creative community, soon-to-debut 2019 titles Stronghold, Oberon, Dark Red, Out of the Blue, and Horde, to name only a few, will cut across all genres to take readers far beyond their comfort zones.

The theme will serve as the focal point of the brand’s 2019 marketing campaign, including new ads debuting in late January on the back covers of all titles, targeted digital advertising, podcast sponsorships, local comic shop initiatives, and prominent placement at major conventions throughout the year. Additional plans will be revealed at the ComicsPRO Annual Meeting to be held in Charlotte in late February.
