Press from Image

Must be a press release out from Image, because this is out at CBR.

...yep, here's the PR at Image: Link


also here: The Pulse
and here: Broken Frontier

Mom, they all say the same thing - you don't have to read them all!

But, I'm one of the top 5 image covers in November according to this guy.

CBR Interview

Had my first interview go live over the weekend. Geroge Tramountanas at Comic Book Resources was kind enough to do the honors. Here's a piece:

How did the book end up at Image? Did you have to “shop it around” much?

Image was always my first choice because 1) it's Image, and 2) retaining ownership of my stuff is very important to me. I FedEx'ed my submission to them on a Monday, and by Saturday, they had contacted me with very complimentary things to say and offered to publish my book. My birthday had been on Thursday. It was a pretty good week.

It's probably a little long, but I think it gets across what I was thinking and what the book isupposeded to be about.

Here you go.

PopImage Blurbage

Over at, Brian Domingos is doing his monthy Previews review, and I found a really nice blurb about The Nightly News.

Moving to Image Comics, I’m excited to see a mini series from writer/artist Jonathan Hickman.

Hickman was one of the contestants in the first “CBR Idols” competition. His style looked like pages from Adi Granov dragged from a bumper for a hundred miles. They were stark with sketchy inks and a ton of attitude.

Hickman didn’t win, but now we get to see the project he’s been able to spend some time on. I for one am glad that he didn’t win at that time. It’s given him a chance to regroup and come back even stronger. Now he’s doing his own mini series – on his own terms

Thanks, Brian!

Indie Challenge

I got picked to be one of the books for Comic Geek Speak's Indie Challenge for Spetember. This is something they do to try and boost sales for smaller books (which is much appreciated). One of the things they do to help with this is to partner with DIscount Comic Book Service to offer additional savings. For example:

The Nightly News #1 (of 6) (Image) Product code: SEP061787. $2.99 cover price, DCBS price .74 cents (75% off - limit 2). Estimated ship date: Nov. 1.

That's a Hell of a deal!

Cover to the Nigthly News #1

Cover to the Nigthly News #1, originally uploaded by Pronea.

Besides the change to the "1" in the title, tagline and the Image "i" -- this is the final cover image. (So it's not really the final image at all, is it?)
