Zombies vs. Robots Returns to Print in March 2022

The original Zombies Vs. Robots title is back to reclaim its turf and introduce itself to a new world! Eisner Award nominated duo Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood take the reins with a lineup of four classic adventures—each loaded with automaton-versus-automaton action—in ZvRC: Zombies Vs. Robots Classic. These remastered issues will hit shelves in March from Image Comics and Ryall and Wood’s Syzygy Publishing imprint.

Each issue of ZvRC will present an iconic tale and feature new Wood covers, and new stories and additional material, too, as well as the multi-part, entirely untrue Secret History of Zombies Vs. Robots. In the premiere issue, readers will be treated to a 26 page “Which Came First?” origin story, an all-new back-up tale in the spirit of a Kanigher/Kubert war comic, and more!

ZvRC: Zombies Vs. Robots Classic#1, which will feature three new covers by Wood as well as a blank sketch cover, will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 30.

Joe Hill’s Rain Launches Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood’s Syzygy Publishing

 A graphic adaptation of Joe Hill’s Rain will serve as the debut offering from Syzygy Publishing, Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood’s new publishing venture. This first, five issue miniseries will kick off the new line of comics, graphic novels, and art books—from the Zombies vs Robots co-creators—beginning in January 2022

The award-winning creative team consisting of writer David M. Booher, artist Zoe Thorogood, colorist Chris O’Halloran, and letterer Shawn Lee will come together to bring Joe Hill’s Rain to sequential form. Ryall and Wood contribute editorial and logo/production design, respectively.

Rain first appeared in author Joe Hill’s acclaimed novella collection Strange Weather, and tells the story of a seemingly normal August day in Boulder, Colorado—the skies are clear and Honeysuckle Speck couldn’t be happier. She’s finally moving in with her girlfriend, Yolanda. But their world is literally torn apart when dark clouds roll in and release a downpour of nails—splinters of bright crystal that shred the skin of anyone not safely under cover. 

Rain makes vivid this escalating apocalyptic event, as the deluge of nails spreads across the country and around the world, threatening everything young lovers Honeysuckle and Yolanda hold dear. 

Rain’s debut issue features a primary Klimpt-inspired cover illustrated by Thorogood; while Elizabeth Beals offers up a vibrant variant cover. Wood also pays tribute to Klimpt in a special painted 1:25 copy incentive cover. 

As an added highlight, each issue of Rain will feature a bonus story from Unnamed, an upcoming series by Ryall and Wood following immortal hunters in pursuit of a fanged creature and set during swingin’ ’60s London. 

Rain #1 (of 5), a 32-page, $3.99 comic, will hit shelves on January 12, 2022:

  • Cover A by Thorogood – Diamond Code NOV210023
  • Cover B by Beals – Diamond Code NOV210024
  • Cover C Blank cover – Diamond Code NOV210025
  • Cover D 1:25 copy incentive by Wood – Diamond Code NOV210026

  • Cover F 1:100 copy incentive Thorogood sketch – Diamond Code NOV210028

Breaking: Chris Ryall Leaves IDW To Start a New Publishing and Entertainment Venture with Ashley Wood

Chris Ryall

IDW Publishing and Chris Ryall have jointly announced that Ryall is stepping down as President, Publisher and Chief Creative Officer to pursue new business opportunities. Although he is stepping aside from his current roles at IDW, he will continue as an Executive Producer on the Netflix series, Locke & Key, and remain the sole editor on any Locke & Key publishing ventures going forward.

In partnership with Ashley Wood and many of the talented creators he has worked with at IDW, Ryall is launching a new storytelling venture focused on the disparate worlds and characters that he brought to life at IDW Publishing. 

Ryall said in the announcement:

Change is often hard, and I will miss this extended family I have worked with for more than 15 years. In the past year alone, we brought on some amazing hires, expanded the scope of many of the departments, and re-focused the foundation of the business to best support the integrated multi-media company that IDW has become. Our collective success with the entertainment team on ‘Locke & Key’ has been a crowning moment for the entire company.  I’m so proud of this special place and the incredible people who work here. I know that I leave IDW perfectly poised for continued success.

During Ryall’s tenure as President and Publisher, IDW Publishing signed a multi-year publishing initiative with the Smithsonian Institution, launched a major program to produce Spanish-language graphic novels for the North American market, transitioned its foreign book distribution business to Penguin Random House and led IDW Publishing to 15 prestigious Eisner Award nominations in 2020, the most of any publisher.
