D.J. Kirkbride and Nikos Koutsis’ Errand Boys Gets a Sneak Peek

Image Comics has revealed a first look excerpt from the new series Errand Boys by D.J. Kirkbride and Nikos Koutsis, which will hit stores in October.

In the future, if you can’t find a decent job, you run errands—the dangerous, often illegal kind. In Errand Boys, readers met 30-year-old Jace Lopaz is a hard-worn scoundrel and a lifelong solo act—until he’s saddled with his 13-year-old half-brother Tawnk full-time. Now Jace has two mouths to feed while evading the law, running from aliens, and jumping off skyscrapers. The only thing weirder than the vastness of space is family.

Errand Boys #1 Cover A by Koutsis (Diamond Code AUG180023) and Errand Boys #1 Cover B by Erik Larsen (Diamond Code AUG180024) will hit stores on Wednesday, October 3rd. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, September 10th.

Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters

Kevin Burke & Chris “Doc” Wyatt (w) • Nikos Koutsis (a) • Aluir Amancio (c)

It’s a new Stretch Armstrong for a new age! Charter City was run down and crime ridden, until the arrival of Rook Unlimited, the leading technology company in the world. The company’s biggest achievement is the development of Flexarium, a compound that can stretch to incredible lengths and become lighter than air or dense as lead. One night, high-school friends Jake Armstrong, Ricardo Perez, and Nathan Park go to hang out at the warehouse where Flexarium is stored, causing an accident that leads to the chemical compound bonding with their bodies, giving them superpowers. The trio is enlisted by Rook Unlimited to fight crime in Charter City as Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters!

Image Reveals #WeBelieve in Colorists Apperciation Variants

Image Comics has revealed the black and white Spawn #286 cover artwork by legendary artist Todd McFarlane and the seven Colorist Appreciation variants that display the high impact of colorists on the artistic medium.

A selection of bestselling colorists—Moreno Dinisio, Frank Martin, Matthew Wilson, Owen Gieni, Annalisa Leoni, Nikos Koutsis, Jean-Francois Beaulieu—each put their own spin on the same McFarlane cover for these #WeBelieve in Colorists variants, and each cover displays their radically different techniques and stunning results.

We Believe in Colorists is the second of many initiatives throughout Image’s planned #WeBelieve 2018 campaign highlighting the important, lately overlooked talent of the comics industry.

Comics is a visual storytelling medium with an artist’s inks and the colorist’s pallete working hand in hand to convey the tone and mood within a finished piece of artwork.

Available on Wednesday, May 30th, final order cutoff deadline on Monday, May 7th:

  • Spawn #286 CVR A B&W by McFarlane (FEB188683)

Stretch Armstrong Reaches Into Comics

Stretch Armstrong will be flexing his multi-media muscles even further this coming January when the first issue of Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters arrives.

Based on the all-new Netflix animated series and inspired by the classic toy line, Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters features Jake Armstrong, a teenage superhero who teams up with his high school friends after they are exposed to experimental chemicals that give them amazing powers. Along with his partners Ricardo Perez, AKA Omni-Mass, and Nathan Park, AKA Wingspan, they’re a diverse group of heroes who attend high school by day and fight crime by night in the futuristic Charter City!

The comics will be written by series Executive Producers and head writers Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt with art by Nikos Koutsis. Cover art will be provided by Aluir Amancio and Koutsis. Burke and Wyatt developed Stretch Armstrong for television in collaboration with fellow Executive Producer, Victor Cook.

 

The forthcoming comic book series will take place during the events of this fall’s debut season of the Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters animated series. Fans who pick up the comic series will get an early glimpse at a new villain introduced in the comics before making its broadcast debut, laying the groundwork for more adventures to come! It wouldn’t be a stretch to say Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters #1 will be available in print and digital January 2018.

Image Comics’ Co-Founder & Co-Partner Erik Larsen Introduces Mighty Man

Image Comics has announced an all-new one-shot by comics legend Erik Larsen, Image Comics’ co-founder and co-partner and the creator of the long-running Savage Dragon series, and artist Nikos Koutsis team up for: Mighty Man. The one-shot story will take flight this April.

In Mighty Man, seven-year-old Betty Bradford has inherited the mantle of the World’s Mightiest Man. Now she trains to take on the role of the world’s greatest superhero and faces her biggest challenge ever.

In the press announcement Larsen said:

Mighty Man was a nutty idea I had some years ago where a godlike entity could be transferred from one host to another, enabling its host to transform into the world’s mightiest man. In each case, I thought it would be compelling to give those powers to the least likely recipient. At this point the power is in the hands of a seven year old girl, the daughter of a previous host who had been Mighty Man.

A fun, action-packed story, Mighty Man is sure to satisfy any comics fan in search of a standalone, page-turning adventure.

Mighty Man, one-shot (Diamond Code FEB170577) hits stores on Wednesday, April 5th. The final order cutoff deadline is Monday, March 13th.
