Opus Comics announces a digital partnership with GlobalComix and Frank Frazetta’s Mothman!

Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer

As they enter their second year of print publication, Opus Comics is expanding their efforts into the digital comics space with the GlobalComix digital comics platform. The comics debuted in honor of what would have been Frank Frazetta’s 82nd birthday on February 9th.

The first two titles to make their GlobalComix debut are Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer and Frank Frazetta’s Dawn Attack, which are the flagship of Opus Comics’ wider FrazettaVerse. Readers are able to enjoy issue #1 of both titles for free, as a way of welcoming them to the platform, then purchase Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer issues #2, 3 and 4 for $3.99 each.

Subsequent issues of each title will be released every two weeks until they catch up with the current print run, then follow alongside the print schedule thereafter. Other Opus Comics titles such as Bill & Ted and Eternal Descent will join the platform over the coming weeks.

FrazettaVerse #0

Written by acclaimed animation writer Mitch Iverson and rendered by renowned artist Stefano Martino, with colorist Luis Antonio Delgado and letterer Jacob Bascle, Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer takes readers on an epic adventure through the worlds of Frazetta, introducing them to extraordinary characters and places envisioned by the “Godfather of fantasy art.”

Meanwhile, the FrazettaVerse continues to grow in print as well, with FrazettaVerse #0 arriving in stores for Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 6. This exciting new comic features a brand new Death Dealer story, along with a preview of the upcoming Frank Frazetta’s Mothman series, which is solicited in the March 2023 edition of Diamond PREVIEWS for May release.

From 1966 to 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, several witnesses reported seeing a man-sized, winged creature with glowing red eyes. Circa 1980, Frank Frazetta painted his iconic work, Mothman. Now you will learn the truth—and it’s weird. Emmy nominee Tim Hedrick and artist Andrea Mutti bring you the next expansion of the FrazettaVerse! Issue #1 comes with two main covers – a new version by series artist Andrea Mutti, alongside the classic Mothman painting by Frank Frazetta.
