Titan Comics Announces New Imprint – Statix Press!

From Michael Moorcock’s Elric, and Enki Bilal’s The Nikopol Trilogy, to Snowpiercer and The Death of Stalin, which inspired major movies, Titan Comics has led the way in high quality, innovative translated editions aimed at a US audience.

Now Titan Comics is proud to announce a brand-new international imprint: Statix Press! This exciting new line will showcase the best comics from Europe and around the globe.

With the new Statix Press line, Titan will continue their rich history of publishing English language versions of classic material such as Philippe Druillet’s Lone Sloane, and Alejandro Jodorowsky’ Showman Killer, while introducing audiences to fresh new creators and titles from the best international creators.

Written by Noël Simsolo with art by BézíanDoctor Radar Issue #1 comes with a stunning cover by superstar artist Francesco Francavilla.

The Beautiful Death, a post-apocalyptic, coming-of-age mini-series, written and illustrated by Mathieu Bablet, asks the question – what does resistance mean when there’s nothing left to fight for? That’s what Wayne, Jeremiah, and Soham, the only survivors of a devastating alien invasion, struggle with – seeking a future that justifies their presence on a ruined world. Issue #1 arrives September 2017 and debuts with a special cover by iconic comic book creator Brandon Graham!

A bold new take of the Twelve Labors of Hercules, Hercules: Wrath of the Heavens by JDMorvan and Looky is a stunningly illustrated science fiction re-telling of the legend of Hercules, which debuted in August 2017. As war rages across the galactic frontier, Hercules – half-human, half-god super-soldier – faces his greatest enemy – his own demons – in a bid for truth and redemption. Issue #2 is due to hit comic stores in mid-September.

Then, on December 13, 2017 classic B-movie horror comes to comic book stores with Under: Scourge of the Sewer! In this new series, written by Christophe Bec with art by Stefano Raffaele and a cover by James Stokoe, some people bury their secrets underground. In Megalopolis, the filth flows into the sewers. Disgraced Lt. Wilson Jericho will soon discover something monstrous will be crawling out of the sewers to rip the city apart!
