The Weatherman #5 Gets a Ryan Sook Variant Cover

Image Comics has revealed a gorgeous, limited The Weatherman #5 cover featuring artwork by Ryan Sook.

In The Weatherman #5, readers find Nathan in the clutches of the Pearl and the clock is ticking. Now Agent Cross must choose between her own desire for vengeance and protecting a man who—though drenched in the blood of billions—might still be innocent.

In The Weatherman, Nathan Bright had it all: an awesome girlfriend, a kickass dog, and a job as the #1 weatherman on terraformed Mars. But when he’s accused of carrying out the worst terrorist attack in human history—an event that wiped out nearly the entire population of Earth—Nathan becomes the most wanted man alive, and a target of a manhunt that spans the galaxy. But is Nathan truly responsible for such a horrific crime? And why can’t he remember?

Image Comics and the CBLDF Bring Anti-Censorship Variants to Shelves this September

This September, Image Comics fights censorship with a powerful line of variant covers to benefit Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), the industry’s voice for free speech advocacy and education. All proceeds from this dynamic campaign will support CBLDF’s important legal work on behalf of comics creators, retailers, educators and readers.

All proceeds from this campaign will benefit CBLDF, with each title featuring two versions of the CBLDF Charity variant—one censored and one uncensored. Image Comics is pleased to reveal the censored versions here.

Spearheaded by HACK/SLASH creator Tim Seeley and Image Comics’ Publisher Eric Stephenson, this benefit includes contributions from Skottie Young, Mirka Andolfo, Howard Chaykin, Justin Greenwood, Geoffo, Ryan Browne, Wook-Jin Clarke, David Rubín, Martin Morazzo, Mark Torres, Danny Luckert, and Seeley himself.

For more than thirty years, Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has protected the First Amendment rights of comics field and developed powerful education efforts in the service of the community. CBLDF has defended a wide range of cases in 2018, most recently a challenge to the graphic novel Fun Home in New Jersey.

Joe Quinones Dons a Browncoat for a Firefly #1 Variant

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a new variant for Firefly #1 out November 2018. Acclaimed artist Joe Quinones puts Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds front and center on a special variant cover to celebrate the all new series revealing the definitive story of the Unification War — the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike. New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon delve into the secret history of Firefly that fans have demanded for years!

Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war, Firefly centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn’t have a planet to call home. Mal Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance, and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.

Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple mission goes wrong, he’s forced to confront it in the form of the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals…and they’ve got Mal and Zoe at the top of their list! War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal’s quest for redemption will put him at odds with his own crew, forcing him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future.

Firefly #1 is available exclusively in comic shops on November 14, 2018 with a main cover by superstar Lee Garbett, along with variant covers by Jock, Bill Sienkiewicz, J.G. Jones and more.

Arriving in stores the same day, Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One collects previously released Serenity comics for the first time under one cover in a new value-priced format as Mal and the crew ride again in these official sequels to the critically acclaimed Firefly television series and Serenity film.
