Jason Shawn Alexander Teams with Rodney Barnes for a New Vampire Horror Series, Killadelphia

Image Comics has announced an all-new, skin-crawling series by writer Rodney Barnes and artist Jason Shawn AlexanderKilladelphia—which will launch this November.

In the announcement, Barnes said:

I wanted to tell a story about people who have fallen through the cracks of society. Those who dream the American dream but do so from the back of the line. That is until now. Can they who have been shown little mercy themselves be merciful? We shall soon see. I can’t say enough about Jason Shawn Alexander’s art, which beautifully captures the mood and tone of an American city under siege. And I’m excited for all to experience the horrors which lurk in the alleys and low places of a town we call Killadelphia.

When a small-town beat cop comes home to bury his murdered father—the revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr.—he begins to unravel a mystery that leads him down a path of horrors that will shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality… and vampires. Welcome to KILLADELPHIA.

Alexander added

Killadelphia has a human element that I don’t often get to see in the horror genre, and rarely get a chance to portray. The story, at times, has me at the edge of my seat and at others, leaves me with a lump in my throat. One gets the feeling you’re reading about real people with real lives in an extraordinarily frightening situation. Luis NCT and my part, at this point, is to bring the art to the level of Rodney Barnes’ emotive words. I think the audience, and myself, have an amazing ride ahead of us.

Killadelphia #1 Cover A by Jason Shawn Alexander (Diamond Code SEP190042) and Killadelphia #1 Cover B “Black Friday Variant” by Francesco Mattina (Diamond Code SEP190043) will hit stores on Wednesday, November 27.

McFarlane Sets a Record with Spawn #301

With its 301st issue, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn becomes the longest running creator-owned comic book in the world!

Spawn launched to record sales of 1.7 million copies when its inaugural issue was released in 1992, helping to cement the early days of Image Comics as a game-changing, new era in creator-owned comic books. Now, 27-years later Spawn, and Image Comics remain hallmarks of the comic book industry.

To continue the celebration that begins with the deluxe sized, 72-page issue of Spawn #300, McFarlane will return, once more, to pencil and ink interior story pages for the record-breaking Spawn #301. Showcasing his unique blend of larger-than-life action and visual world-building, McFarlane will usher in Spawn’s next creative evolution in his signature “hyper-detailed” style that has been an inspiration to artists and storytellers across all genres of entertainment media.

Joining Todd on Spawn #301’s superstar creative team will be legendary Spawn and Batman artist, Greg Capullo, critically-acclaimed illustrator, Jason Shawn Alexander, top comic artists, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opeña, and Francesco Mattina, along with more surprises, including more top-tier comic book talent.

Spawn #301, a 48-page full-color comic book will be in stores September 25, 2019. Also available will be black and white Spawn #301 “Artist Edition” variant showcasing McFarlane and Capullo’s original, inked artwork.

The start of their journey did not go exactly as planned, but Keaton made a deal to get Vic to Alcatraz safely, and nothing will dissuade her from carrying out her contract.
