Verge

Official Press Release

LOS ANGELES – Imagine one more comic book company, and imagine this company as awesome.

Founded by a comic industry pro, Lars Canty, and professional screenwriter, Phillip Kelly, Identity Comics isn’t your run of the mill, superheros in spandex, saving the world assembly line. It’s off-beat, violent, eccentric. Lars and Phillip defy genres, and Verge #1 is the dawn of their ideal comic world. With all new original stories by the founders and a handful of extremely talented up-and-coming artists, Verge #1 features four distinct stories:

Concrete Shoes, with a story by Lars and Phillip and art by Penguins vs. Possums’ fame, Sebastian Kadlecik, follows a Private Detective in a neo-noir, cyberpunk world who becomes entangled in a situation involving an ex-mafia hitman, half covered in concrete. This concrete monster has seemingly come back from the dead to wage war against the most dangerous crime family in the US. Brutality and violence drive the story that is less about revenge and redemption and more about might makes right. Continue reading »

THREE

THREE

The first, second, and third issues of the hugely popular SEX CRIMINALS series, created by Matt Fraction (SATELLITE SAM, Hawkeye) and Chip Zdarsky (Prison Funnies), have sold out at the distributor level yet again and are already slated for a reprinting. SEX CRIMINALS #1 only just released on 9/25 this year, but quickly caught the attention of critics and readers alike. Time magazine dubbed SEX CRIMINALS the #1 comic series of the year, Multiversity Comics named it Best New Series of 2013, Comics Alliance recognized Chip Zdarsky among the Best Artists of 2013, and actor Wil Wheaton calls it “one of the best things I’ve ever read, period.” SEX CRIMINALS #2 is heading into its third printing and issue #3 into its second printing.

SEX CRIMINALS

SEX CRIMINALS

Kieron Gillen and Ryan Kelly’s THREE has been heralded by Comic Book Resources as “a spectacular new series that defies expectation with its astounding depth and rigor” and championed by Multiversity Comics as “a tribute to a long-forgotten people. Three is a rebellion against the swallowing void of history by way of enlightenment.” THREE #1 and #2 are both heading back for reprinting.

SEX CRIMINALS #1, #2, and #3, as well as THREE #1 and #2, have all completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. They are currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

Image Comics is pleased to announce that all these issues will be going back to print to meet customer demand. The fourth printing of SEX CRIMINALS #1 (Diamond Code OCT138368) will release on 1/8/14, the third printing of SEX CRIMINALS #2 (Diamond Code OCT138369) will release on 1/8/14, and the second printing of SEX CRIMINALS #3 (Diamond Code OCT138244) will release on 1/8/14.
