Back at the first Image Expo this year it was announced that Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips were going exclusive with Image for their collections, and that means porting over CRiminal from Marvel’s creator owned Icon line. And this month’s solicitations reveal that not only is it coming back, but there will be a new one-shot, and newly designed editions, hitting in January.
The stellar comics making team of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips is finishing up FATALE, but fading in on FADE OUT, a new collaboration due in August. The first issue will be 40 pages long, and given its old time Tinsel Town sbject atter, a varient edition will be printed in an oversized “movie magazine replica” format with 8 extra pages of behind-the-scenes art and articles.
SLEEPER, tone of several series by the dynamic duo of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips is in production again, this time with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck producing. Shawn Ryan, of The Shield and David Wiener of The Killing are set to write the screenplay. Set in the Wildstorm universe, the tale involves an undercover […]
Last weekend I headed south for Kendal, a bustling town in the beautiful Lake District of England for a comics festival with a difference. The Lakes International Comic Art Festival fully embraced a European (Angoulême) approach to the medium, with the whole town celebrating the weekend of events, and perhaps consequently drawing a much more […]
As part of the new wave of Image creator owned comics by big name talent, Velvet by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting reunites the Captain America team for what is Epting’s first creator owned outing.
Velvet, which goes on sales on October 23rd, is a tale of espionage set in the Cold War. It’s an idea Brubaker had kicking around for years—he estimates that from the time he came up with it to when Epting was finally able to start ten years passed. Although it seems like a long time, Brubaker was able to take more time research, resulting in a stronger story, he said as a press conference this afternoon.
If today’s “Image Comics and the Genre Fiction Renaissance” panel at Comic-Con can be any guide, there are only two genres in the comic book industry: superheroes and everything else. Image are putting out a lot of ‘everything else’ these days, and genres are crossing like crazy. A panel including Tim Seeley, Mike Norton, Ed […]
It’s not particularly grim oop North if you head to the right parts, and you can’t go wrong with Kendal. It’s a lovely part of the world, and the perfect place for a comic book festival. And conveniently that leads me to mention The Lakes International Comic Art Festival, which will see Sean Phillips and Bryan and Mary Talbot […]
FATALE, the beautifully drawn and conceived crime comic by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips has been presented as a very well received series of minis up until now, but it seems Brubaker has so many ideas for the main character he’s decided to make it an ongoing. Via PR: Josephine, heroine of Ed Brubaker’s and […]

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are but two of the big-name creators making the move to Image in 2012 — that’s definitely going to be a BIG story for the year — and Warren Ellis has a five page preview of their new book FATALE. Here’s a one-page preview of the five-page preview. The book goes on sale this Wednesday.
Over the holiday Chris Arrant had a fantastic two part survey of what-ever-happened-to comics, including no-shows like such as All-Star Batgirl and All-Star Wonder Woman, and done-but-long-shelved books like Batman Europa and Daniel Way and Darick Robertson’s Deathlok: Detour, it-sounded-ike-a-good-idea-when-we-were-talking-about-it-in-the-bar projects like Ed Brubaker and Sean Philips’ vampire pirates book Black Sails (above) and something best not thought about too much called “Frank Miller’s Jesus.”
