The Wrong Earth Expands with a Special Event Featuring Gail Simone, Mark Waid, Mark Russell, Stuart Moore, and more!

Bestselling writers Gail Simone and Mark Waid are joining AHOY Comics Editor-in-Chief Tom Peyer, Second Coming writer Mark Russell, and Captain Ginger writer Stuart Moore to write world-shattering, money-grabbing, stand-alone The Wrong Earth specials. These comics will feature art by Bill Morrison, Walter Geovani, Michael Montenat, Fred Harper, Leonard Kirk, and Greg Scott, with covers by The Wrong Earth co-creator and artist Jamal Igle. Each special will have a variant cover by Gene Ha; there will also be  variant covers by Dan Parent, Jerry Ordway, and other artists. The multiverse-spanning monthly event will begin in March with the release of The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1, written by Gail Simone, with art by Bill Morrison, Walter Geovani, and Rob Lean, with colors by Andy Troy, and lettering by Rob Steen

Each of The Wrong Earth world-shattering special event one-shots will present a stand-alone, 25-page story that expands on the multiverse first introduced in AHOY Comics’ flagship title by Peyer and Igle, wherein the campy Dragonflyman of Earth Alpha switched places with the gritty Dragonfly of Earth Omega and chaos ensued.

The first issue to hit stores, The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1, finds grim-and-gritty vigilante Dragonfly whisked to an Earth of teenagers, malt shops, love triangles, and nonstop jokes. Will they win him over—or will his violent methods infect their world? The issue is illustrated by Bill Morrison, Walter Geovani, and Rob Lean, with colors by Andy Troy, and lettering by Rob Steen. The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1 will feature variant covers by both Gene Ha and Dan Parent. The issue marks the AHOY Comics debut of legendary writer Gail Simone.

The Wrong Earth world-shattering special event continues in subsequent months with:

  • The Wrong Earth: Fame & Fortune #1 from writer Mark Russell, artist Michael Montenat, colorist Andy Troy, and letterer Rob Steen. On sale in April, this comic from the writer of Billionaire Island provides a satirical look at two different versions of Richard Fame and how, despite the best and worst intentions, huge gobs of money determine their own results. 
  • The Wrong Earth: Purple #1 from writer Stuart Moore, artist Fred Harper, and letterer Rob Steen. On sale in May, this one-shot introduces Earth-Kappa, a dark but glossy world of big hair, shoulder pads, Wall Street traders, rubber super-suits, and funk music. Get the funk up! 
  • The Wrong Earth: Confidence Men #1 by writer Mark Waid, artist Leonard Kirk, and letterer Rob Steen. On sale in June, it’s the tale of two sidekicks! On campy Earth-Alpha, circumstances force kid sidekick Stinger to become Dragonflyman’s mentor! On gritty Earth-Omega, Dragonfly and Stinger go to war—against each other! 
  • The Wrong Earth: Meat #1 from writer Tom Peyer, artist Greg Scott, and letterer Rob Steen, on sale in July. On campy Earth-Alpha, Dragonflyman and Stinger follow clues to foil the beef-themed crimes of Dr. Meat. On gritty Earth Omega, a tragedy compels Dragonfly to imprison a criminal in an abandoned slaughterhouse—just to have someone to talk to. 

The Wrong Earth: Trapped on Teen Planet #1, will debut on March 2.

Scott Snyder Signs Deal with comiXology Featuring 8 Creator-Owned Comics

Scott Snyder has tested the waters of creator-owned comics, crowdfunding, and now has signed a deal with comiXology to co-create eight original titles for the digital platform. Through Snyder’s Best Jackett Press, the comics will first debut digitally on comiXology and Kindle and then later be printed through Dark Horse.

We Have Demons with Greg Capullo is one of the series announced. Others involved include Rafael Albuquerque, Francesco Francavilla, Jamal Igle, Jock, Tula Lotay, Francis Manapul, and Dan Panosian. The comics will begin to be released in October.

The decision by Snyder was expedited due to shifts in the industry due to COVID as well as publishers cutting rates.

While Amazon will get a brief first look, the company has no rights to the comics allowing Snyder and the artists to control the projects when it comes to film, television, and merchandise.

Black's Myth #1

White #1 Goes Back to Print After Orders of Over 40,000

White #1

The first issue of the empowered Black superheroes comic book series White (sequel to 2016’s BLACK) by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph has garnered over 40,000 ordersselling out ahead of its June 30th release date. Black Mask Studios is going back to press for a second printing.   White is the sequel to the 2016’s hit Black. Black is currently in development as a feature film with Warner Bros.

Planned as a limited edition series with a 2,500 copy print run for the main cover, White received orders nearly twenty-times higher than its initial printing. In response to the massive demand, the team has decided to open the print run up with no limits placed on the reprint run.

White was successfully Kickstarted in March 2019 receiving $47,115 from 1,420 backers. The comic was originally estimated to be delivered in March 2020 and delayed due to COVID. Unfortunately, as of the announcement of the massive first printing, backers are speaking out about not receiving the items they pledged for. In full disclosure, I am one of those individuals.

In a world that already hates and fears them – what if only Black people had superpowers. That’s the setting of the Black universe of comic books. After miraculously surviving being gunned down by police, a young man learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. He must decide whether it’s safer to keep it a secret or if the truth will set him free. 

Now, the team that asked “What if only Black people had superpowers?” is back with the sequel to the critically acclaimed series, BLACK. It’s been three years since the world learned only Black people have superhuman abilities, and the United States has responded by electing Theodore Mann to the presidency. The only person standing in the way of his policies to control empowered Blacks are Kareem Jenkins and his allies. 

White #1 second printing will be released on July 21.
