Artgerm and Enrico Marini’s Covers for Mercy Revealed

Image Comics has revealed jaw-dropping alternative covers for Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #1 featuring artwork by Artgerm and Enrico Marini. This highly anticipated forthcoming six-issue miniseries was recently released in Italy by Panini Comics to breakout critical acclaim and will launch in the United States from Image Comics in March.

Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy begins when the placid mining village of Woodsburgh is disturbed by a series of brutal murders, sending the settlement into turmoil. As the first snow covers the chaos in a white blanket, a mysterious woman in black arrives, eliciting a totally different kind of unrest. But who is Lady Hellaine, really? And what’s her secret agenda?

Mercy explores topics of “otherness,” damnation and redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, Carnival Row, and Dark Shadows. More exciting details about the goth-inspired, Victorian monster series will be unveiled as the United States release date approaches.

After the poignant story of inclusion and self-discovery told in Unnatural, Andolfo presents a darker story that addresses issues far beyond typical genre-related tropes.

Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 4:

  • Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #1 (Diamond Code JAN200129) Cover A by Andolfo
  • Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy #1 (Diamond Code JAN200130) Cover B by Humberto Ramos

Catwoman Celebrates 80 Years with a 100-Page Super Spectacular in April

DC’s feline fatale celebrates an 80th anniversary this year, and that calls for a grand soiree, invite only, attended by some of comics’ top creators! Stock up on both catnip and champagne! 

Since the character first appeared alongside Batman in 1940’s Batman #1, Catwoman has become an icon to millions of comic book fans. The undeniable magnetism between Batman and Catwoman has been one of comics’ most reliable constants: wherever Catwoman goes, Batman is sure to follow, if only to take her down. As deadly as she is beautiful, infamous cat burglar Selina Kyle uses her nine lives to walk the razor’s edge between light and darkness in Gotham City.

On April 15, 2020, DC will celebrate Catwoman’s 80th anniversary with a landmark one-shot, Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1. Featuring a cover by series writer/artist Joëlle Jones, this must-have tribute comic includes stories by Ed Brubaker, Cameron Stewart, Paul Dini, Ann Nocenti, Adam Hughes, Tom King, Mikel Janín, Mindy Newell, Will Pfeifer, and Emanuela Lupacchino, as well as pinups by Steve Rude, Tula Lotay, Jim Balent, and others.

In a story that expands their monumental run, writer Ed Brubaker and artist Cameron Stewart will reprise their Catwoman collaboration with a new 12-page story, “The Art of Picking a Lock,” that takes place near end of their original dynamic story line that started with iconic storyteller Darwyn Cooke. And no stranger himself to writing dangerous antiheroes, Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini debuts a new character for Selina Kyle’s anniversary in a story about an exotic cat taxidermist who intends to add Catwoman to their collection!

Cameron Stewart has teased a bit of his contribution with Ed Brubaker.

In addition to Jones’s dynamic cover, fans and collectors can also look forward to eight variant covers spotlighting Catwoman throughout the decades, drawn by some of comics’ premier artists:

  • 1940s variant cover by Adam Hughes 
  • 1950s variant cover by Travis Charest 
  • 1960s variant cover by J. Scott Campbell 
  • 1970s variant cover by Frank Cho
  • 1980s variant cover by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau
  • 1990s variant cover by Gabriele Dell’Otto 
  • 2000s variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams 
  • 2010s variant cover by Jeehyung Lee

The Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 is a prestige format comic book retailing for $9.99 and available at local comics retailers and digital retailers on April 15, 2020.
