D.J. Kirkbride and Nikos Koutsis’ Errand Boys Gets a Sneak Peek

Image Comics has revealed a first look excerpt from the new series Errand Boys by D.J. Kirkbride and Nikos Koutsis, which will hit stores in October.

In the future, if you can’t find a decent job, you run errands—the dangerous, often illegal kind. In Errand Boys, readers met 30-year-old Jace Lopaz is a hard-worn scoundrel and a lifelong solo act—until he’s saddled with his 13-year-old half-brother Tawnk full-time. Now Jace has two mouths to feed while evading the law, running from aliens, and jumping off skyscrapers. The only thing weirder than the vastness of space is family.

Errand Boys #1 Cover A by Koutsis (Diamond Code AUG180023) and Errand Boys #1 Cover B by Erik Larsen (Diamond Code AUG180024) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 3rd. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, September 10th.

The Once and Future Queen Switches from Singles to Trade Paperback

In what feels like it’s becoming a trend, Dark Horse has announced that The Once and Future Queen by Adam P. Knave, D.J. Kirkbride, Nick Brokenshire, and Frank Cvetkovic will no longer be released in single issues. The series will instead be collected as a trade paperback to be released in November. The series saw the first two issues released with the last three canceled. They’re not even being released digitally.

The series was well reviewed when it was released but as things go the sales weren’t there. Instead, this change allows Dark Horse and the creators to focus on the book market and its target audience.

Set in Portland, Oregon, and the UK, the story stars Rani Arturus, a chess prodigy with no plans to be a leader of any sort, let alone QUEEN. After she pulls the legendary sword Excalibur from the stone . . . well, no backsies. Now she must form a new Round Table made of friends and family to protect the Earth from an invasion of Fae, who’d like a new planet to call their own. It’s magic, romance, adventure, and excitement as old myths reveal themselves to be fake, and new ones cause trouble for everyone!

The Once and Future Queen is out November 1, 2017.

The Once and Future Queen Starts Its Reign on March 8, 2017

Dark Horse courts a twenty-first-century King Arthur adventure with The Once and Future Queen and its golden creative team. Adam P. Knave and D.J. Kirkbride are the bards for this modern Arthurian tale, while Nickolas Brokenshire provides his illustrative skills to the noble new series, and Frank Cvetkovic letters it.

The Once and Future Queen finds Rani Arturus on a trip to the United Kingdom to compete in a chess championship. The multiethnic teen girl finds herself immersed in magic and mystery after she encounters the legendary sword Excalibur. With the support of a surprisingly modern Merlin, Rani must fight to become the queen humankind has been waiting for.

The Once and Future Queen’s first issue (of five) goes on sale March 8, 2017.
