The 24 Panels Anthology Features, Alan Moore, Kieron Gillen, and More to Benefit the Grenfell Fire Survivors

Image Comics has announced the forthcoming 24 Panels Anthology, curated by New York Times bestselling creator Kieron Gillen with co-editor Steve Thompson, and featuring work from some of the most celebrated storytellers and artists in the industry. The charity anthology will benefit the survivors of the Grenfell fire.

In June 2017, the Grenfell fire killed 72 people in a 24-story tower block in West London. 24 Panels is an anthology comic to support the PTSD needs of the survivors. The 24 Panels Anthology will be comprised of 24 stories, each no longer than 24 panels. Half drawn from professional creators who volunteered their time and half drawn from open submissions, 24 PANELS is about community, hope, and (most of all) raising as much money as possible.

Al Ewing, Alan Moore, Alex de Campi, Antony Johnston, Caspar Wijngaard, Dan Watters, Dilraj Mann, Doug Braithwaite, Gavin Mitchell, Laurie Penny, Leigh Alexander, Lizz Lunney, Melinda Gebbie, Paul Cornell, Rachael Smith, Ram V, Robin Hoelzemann, Rosy Higgins, Sara Kenney, Sarah Gordon, Ted Brandt, Tom Humberstone, Tula Lotay, and more will contribute to 24 Panels.

24 Panels (Diamond Code SEP180079, ISBN: 978-1-5343-1126-8) will be available in comic book stores on Wednesday, November 21st. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, October 8th.

It will be available in bookstores on Tuesday, November 27th and can be pre-ordered at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.

A War Begins in Brigands: Ruin of Thieves

Ruin of Thieves is the continuation of the Brigands story. The Brigands are a group of cutthroat thieves who have been granted a reprieve from death row if they steal The Myros Pendulum. A war will start and the “heroes” of our story must overcome their pasts and mistrust of each other to get out alive.

Brigands is Game of Thrones meets Ocean’s Eleven with a dash of Joe Abercrombie thrown in. Writer Ram V was aiming to give readers a fantastical action-packed adventure. And the journey of Brigands wouldn’t be complete without beautiful art from Sumit Kumar and ROSH.

If you’re a fan of Suicide Squad type stories where the heroes may not just stab their enemies in the back but also their allies, Ruin of Thieves is the perfect book for you. The complete volume will be in a comic book store near you on September 26th, 2018. You can preorder one or all three of the available covers with the following Diamond item code JUL181433.

As the first flames of conflict begin to lick at their heels, our heroes, led by the infamous Stilian ‘Blackheart’ Desault, find themselves on the smuggler’s isle of Rekik. And, for all their efforts at keeping their heads low, trouble seems to have a knack of tightening the noose around their necks.
