Skybound Xpo: Skybound Announces Kaiju Action with Ultramega Launching in March 2021

Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment will supersize fan frenzy this March with new series Ultramega by heavyweight James Harren and featuring the talents of multiple Eisner award winning colorist Dave Stewart.

But it’s not just the creative team that’s bigger-than-life. Ultramega’s debut issue will sink ships with its extra-length story—busting at the seams with a whopping 68-pages of colossal goodness. The new series was announced during a conversation between Skybound’s Editor-in-Chief Sean Mackiewicz and online host Hector Navarro during a Skybound Xpo panel today.

In the world of Ultramega, a cosmic plague has spread and transformed everyday people into violent, monstrous kaiju. Only the Ultramega—three individuals imbued with incredible powers—hold the line against this madness. Their battles level cities and leave untold horror in their wake. Now, the final reckoning approaches for the Ultramega… but is this a war they can even win? 

Pacific Rim? Puny. Godzilla? A guppy. Readers beware: no series launch in 2021 could possibly be bigger than Ultramega. Literally. 

Ultramega #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 17.

The Walking Dead Goes Full Color in October

Read it again! Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment will revisit the historic independent series that took the entertainment world by storm 17 years ago—The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard—with newly, fully colored issues. Featuring the stunning work of the masterful Dave McCaig, these new issues will launch in October with The Walking Dead Deluxe #1. Kirkman announced the fully colored issues during Skybound Xpo, Skybound’s virtual pop-culture convention, earlier today.

This deluxe revival of the series will also feature a memorable array of variant covers—by such artists as David Finch, Tony Moore, Julian Totino Tedesco, and Arthur Adams—commemorating major character introductions and the series’ most memorable twists and turns. Each issue will include a new installment of “The Cutting Room Floor,” featuring Kirkman’s original handwritten plots along with commentary on abandoned storylines and plot points that may have changed along the way.

This definitive presentation of the story will NOT be collected into trade paperback any time soon, so fans and new readers should not trade-wait to experience this fully colored edition of the popular survival horror series. Issue #1 will be available on October 7. Each following month two issues will be released.

The Walking Dead Deluxe #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 7:
