Image announces a trio of Second Printings

Image Comics has announced that three bestelling series will be fast-tracked for reprints in order to keep up with escalating customer demand—Skottie Young and Brett Bean’s I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s The Bone Orchard Mythos: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #2, and Wes Craig’s Kaya #2. All three reprints will land on shelves this December.

In Skottie Young and Brett Bean’s I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, everyone’s favorite green-haired axe-wielding crazed maniac returns in this Deadpool meets Alice In Wonderland-style adventure! Gert is all grown up and living in the real world. Times are tough and the only job she’s qualified for has her trying to find her way back to the place she hates the most…Fairyland.

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino expand their shared horror universe of titles, The Bone Orchard Mythos, with Ten Thousand Black Feathers. In issue #2, Trish and Jackie are pulled deeper into the fantasy world they’ve created. But the terrors of the real world are difficult to separate and their teenage daydreams are proving to be equally dangerous.

In Wes Craig’s Kaya #2, Kaya has formed an uneasy alliance with the Lizard-Riders. But will a flash flood and a dangerous hunt for food with the treacherous Zothan push Kaya past her breaking point?

I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229024), The Bone Orchard Mythos: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #2, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229025), and Kaya #2, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229026) will all be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 21.

Creepshow #2 returns with a Second Printing

On the heels of an instant sellout and second printing of its debut issue, Skybound has announced that Creepshow #2 has sold out and will return with a second printing. Based on Greg Nicotero’s hit Shudder TV series produced and licensed by Cartel Entertainment, Creepshow #2 will return to comic shops on December 28, 2022.  

Featuring a brand-new second printing variant cover drawn by Maria Wolf and colored by Mike Spicer, Creepshow #2 includes two spine-chilling stories.  

David Lapham and Maria Lapham kick off the issue with the terrifying tale of a tree whose roots grew so deep they reached Hell…and the girl who sat beneath it. Trish Mulvihill colors the story, and Pat Brosseau letters.  

Then, writer Steve Foxe joins forces with artist Erica Henderson to share the shocking story of legendary comic creator Sal Medina—and the dedicated fan who went too far. Henderson is additionally on duty for colors, and Brosseau is back for letters on this story as well.  

Brian Witten is overseeing on behalf of Nicotero’s Monster Agency Productions. The Creepshow comic miniseries deal was brokered by Striker Entertainment. 

The Creepshow #2 (of 5) Second Printing Variant (Diamond Code SEP228468) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, December 28, 2022.

A hero’s journey begins in The Last Barbarians

Brian Haberlin and Geirrod Van Dyke are back with an all-new, high fantasy adventure in, The Last Barbarians. This ongoing series is set to launch from Image Comics and Shadowline in February 2023.

You’d think in a fantastic world full of giants, magic, and flying fish, it would be a world of possibility. But you’d be dead wrong here! Sylv is a jack of all trades; she can fight with the best of them, pick most pockets, and even cast a third-level spell or two. It’s too bad for her that if you aren’t a member of a guild, you are persona non grata: completely outcast from adventuring. That might be fine, except she has her disabled seven-foot-tall brother to take care of. If she can’t find a job to support them both, they’ll be dead in a ditch in a matter of weeks. So now her only hope is a quest from a sketchy cleric who promises only a true hero can save the day. Sylv has a lot of skills…and she’ll need them all to survive this hero’s journey!

The Last Barbarians #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 15:

  • Cover A by Haberlin – Diamond Code DEC220116
  • Cover B by Haberlin – Diamond Code DEC220117
  • Cover C by Haberlin – Diamond Code DEC220118
  • Cover D by Haberlin – Diamond Code DEC220119
  • Cover E by Haberlin – Diamond Code DEC220120

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Frank Miller's Ronin Book Two #1

Wednesdays (and Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Ancient Enemies #1 (Frank Miller Presents) – Earth becomes the final battlefield for a centuries old war between two alien races.

Boat Life (Floating World Comics)Boat Life stars novelist Tsuda Kenta, a lightly veiled stand-in for the artist, Tsuge Tadao, himself, as he pursues a life of reprieve and reverie on a small, makeshift house boat on a river outside of Tokyo.

Dark Spaces: Wildfire #5 (IDW Publishing) – The series has been amazing and such a unique concept of a heist set in a forest fire. The art has been at times jaw dropping.

DC vs. Vampires #11 (DC Comics) – We’ll keep repeating it but the series has blown past our expectations and kept us at the edge of our seat.

Eight Billion Genies #6 (Image Comics) – The series has been amazing being able to fit in so many concepts and ideas and make it all work. But, it’s the characters in the crazy world that’s the real draw.

Fear of a Red Planet #1 (AfterShock) – The sheriff on Mars must deal with the murder of someone everyone hates.

Frank Miller’s Ronin Book Two #1 (Frank Miller Presents) – It’s been a long time since we read the original but Miller returning to comics the way he is and launching this has us intrigued.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #300 (IDW Publishing) – A final special oversized issue as G.I. Joe ends its time at IDW. Hopefully, this isn’t the end of Larry Hama’s writing for the series no matter where it winds up.

Kamen Rider: Zero One #1 (Titan Comics) – We’re not too familiar with Kamen Rider but we’re excited to check this out. The covers and art look awesome!

Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A new apocalyptic series but it’s a trilogy with each issue featuring 30 pages of story that spans a lifetime. An interesting concept from writer Jason Aaron and rotating group of artists.

Parker Girls #3 (Abstract Studio) – The series has been a lot of fun mixing action and humor, exactly what we’d expect from creator Terry Moor.

Star Wars: Revelations #1 (Marvel) – The issue teases what’s to come for Marvel’s Star Wars line of comics!

Preview: Creepshow #3 (of 5)

kills, and the hunters can just as easily become prey.

Creepshow #3 (of 5)
