Infidel’s Trade Paperback Gets a Second Printing

On the heels of news that Hany Abu-Assad will direct Infidel’s film adaptation, Image Comics is rushing the breakout hit horror story by bestselling editor and writer Pornsak Pichetshote, artist Aaron Campbell, award-winning colorist and editor José Villarrubia, and letterer/designer Jeff Powell back to print this week, ahead of schedule.

A haunted house story for the 21st century, Infidel follows an American Muslim woman and her multiracial neighbors who move into a building haunted by entities that feed off xenophobia. Garnering early critical acclaim for its fresh and timely twist on horror, Infidel was selected for numerous 2018 “best of” lists.

Infidel trade paperback collects issues #1-5—the complete miniseries—plus an introduction by Tananarive Due and an afterword by Jeff Lemire.

Infidel Will be Collected Into Trade this September

The complete series of the critically acclaimed, powerful new horror story Infidel—by bestselling writer and former Vertigo editor Pornsak Pichetshote and artist Aaron Campbell—will be collected into trade paperback and available this September.

This tautly woven series tackles controversial topics in race and racism and how it can affect people from different cultures and landed a movie deal after just two issues. Michael Sugar (Academy Award-winning producer of Spotlight for Best Picture) and TriStar will adapt the series for the big screen.

Rife with political undertones, Infidel can best be described as Get Out meets Insidious and explores Islamophobia through a haunting and chilling story about one American Muslim woman and her multi-ethnic neighbors who move into a building haunted by creatures that feed on xenophobia.

Infidel trade paperback (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0836-7, Diamond Code JAN188523) will collect issues #1-5 and will hit stores on Wednesday, September 26th and bookstores on Tuesday, October 2nd. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, August 13th.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays 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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Shay

Hit Girl #5 (Image Comics) – I’m excited to see what she does to the Canadians after all the chaos and pain she caused the Colombians in this new story arc.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 12, The Reckoning (Dark Horse Comics) – One year later and the title is the RECKONING so you know it’s gonna be bad news but good action.

Harley Quinn #44 (DC Comics) – Harley is the good guy and really ticked off about her fave bodega going boom boom bye bye.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Flavor #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was adorable and I can’t wait to read the second of this series focused on a young woman attempting to take care of her parents and run a bakery.

Infidel #4 (Image Comics) – Fantastic horror with a twist with a focus on Islamophobia. Just great.

James Bond: The Body #6 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Wrapping up the series and it’s a good one bringing all the pieces of the puzzle together.

Skyward #3 (Image Comics) – The concept is fantastic and issues entertaining. An Earth where gravity has gone away and there’s a conspiracy about it all and evil corporations that have profited. It’s really good so far.

Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 (Marvel) – Dan Slott moves from spiders to iron men and this first issue is his treatise as to who Tony Stark and Iron Man are. It’s a good first issue and a perfect starting point.
