Kurt Busiek Releases New Arrowsmith, Astro City, and More in 2022

Kurt Busiek, the bestselling writer of Avengers, Superman, Thunderbolts, Iron Man, JLA, and more, is returning to Image in a big way in 2022, with new entries in fan-favorite series, including Astro City, Arrowsmith and others, plus new creations and more, as he brings his creator-owned work to Image Comics as his primary publisher.

First up, Busiek and superstar artist Carlos Pacheco bring fans the much-anticipated return of Arrowsmith in Arrowsmith: Behind Enemy Lines. This six issue miniseries launches from Image Comics in January 2022—followed in February by an oversized, fully re-mastered hardcover collected edition of the original series.

In March, Arrowsmith will be joined by the return of Astro City, Busiek’s collaboration with Brent Anderson, Alex Ross, and Alex Sinclair, first with an Astro City one-shot special introducing new characters and setting the stage for upcoming dangers for the city and the world, plus new collected editions that will make the entire Astro City backlist available again.

Longtime fans will also be treated to a new urban-fantasy graphic novel, The Gods on Sunday Morning, from the whole Astro City team, after which they begin a new ongoing run on the acclaimed series.

Also in the works is Free Agents, a new series launch from Busiek with co-writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Stephen Mooney and the return of Autumnlands from Busiek with Benjamin Dewey and Jordie Bellaire, all planned for late 2022.

In addition to all the exciting new content from the mind of Busiek, there will also be re-releases of his popular backlist gems like Shockrockets and Superstar: As Seen on TV, both with Stuart Immonen, Wade von Grawbadger, and Jeromy Cox, and The Wizard’s Tale with David Wenzel.

In the upcoming Arrowsmith: Behind Enemy Lines, it’s World War I—but a war of wizards and dragons as much as bullets and barbed wire. Young airman Fletcher Arrowsmith plunges back into the heat of war—and finds himself behind enemy lines, facing a threat that could doom the Allied Powers. Old friends and new favorites will appear, and the world of Arrowsmith will be deepened, as previously-secret history and machinations are revealed.

For the re-mastered hardcover, Arrowsmith: So Smart In Their Fine Uniforms ,readers are introduced to young Fletcher Arrowsmith who learns the true cost of war in an alternate history where dragons and magic spells are as much a part of World War I as bullets and barbed wire. This edition, deluxe-sized and in hardcover for the first time, will present the art as Pacheco originally intended, and will feature ancillary material about the creation and history of Arrowsmith.

Sheena Queen of the Jungle Swings Into New Series!

The Queen of the Jungle is swinging back into comics this fall in a brand new series! One of comics’ most historic heroines returns in a bold new take by writer Stephen Mooney that seeks to answer the question – in a very different kind of jungle, the urban one – is Sheena still queen? Mooney is reunited with his Bettie Page collaborator Jethro Morales, as they’ve honed their chemistry together alongside colorist Dinei Ribero.

In a tale evoking such action-packed and incisive films as Jurassic Park, Predator, and The Hunger Games, Sheena is drafted by a conglomerate eager to rehabilitate its image with a haven for endangered flora and fauna in a state-of-the-art combination research center and destination resort — the Bio-Dome!. But on the eve of the grand opening, all communication with staff and the first lucky park visitors has broken off. Inside and outside of the Bio-Dome, Sheena faces obstacles both new and old, including deceit, manipulation, and a deadly creature like nothing she has ever encountered. What she discovers will change her entire world — and her place in it.

That lasting legacy is celebrated with a diverse range of artists contributing to the series beyond the core creative team. Readers and collectors can enjoy covers by Lucio Parrillo, Rose Besch, Arthur Suydam, Joseph Michael Linsner, Carla Cohen, Stephen Mooney, Lesley “Leirix” Li, and even cosplay by Rachel Hollon.

Sheena Queen of the Jungle #1 is slated for release in November 2021

Bettie Page Returns in New Series from Karla Pacheco, Vincenzo Federici, Rebecca Nalty, and Becca Carey

Bettie Page is back and better than ever, with a new alternate history twist making her a true Hollywood star in the making – and suspect to a murder!

Writer Karla Pacheco brings her kickass skill and sensibilities to another iconic babe, building up a new yarn for Bettie that’s part pulp noir, part pin-up, stylized yet realistic. She’s joined by Italian artist Vincenzo Federici, who’s drawn the “Dark Angel” before. Rounding out the team are colorist Rebecca Nalty and letterer Becca Carey.

In this series, Bettie has moved from New York to Hollywood sometime around 1954. She’s transitioned into more minor acting working, with theater success and bit parts in B-movies. Though she’s still challenged navigating the sticky swamp of producers, perps, pumps, and pushers who call La La Land home and want a piece of the pie – and Bettie. The question is – does Bettie Page find trouble, or does trouble find her? Signing on for a supporting role in a “tastefully sensual” fantasy film set on an idyllic tropical island, she’s wrapped up in a new environment and colorful cast of characters. Until someone is murdered and a massive storm hits!

For such an iconic woman, a crop of all-star artists are contributing covers! Junggeun Yoon leads the pack, joined by Kano and of course the legendary Joseph Michael Linsner. Riki Le Cotey marks a first with a cosplay cover. The real-life Bettie herself is featured on two photo cover variants, one nice and one naughty. Plus a slick homage to Frank Miller from Stephen Mooney.
