Upcoming from Image

Hello, everyone. I have not posted in a while, so I am going to do a couple of posts about some projects I have coming up. I will separate them by publisher to make it easier...for me?



GUARDING THE GLOBE #6

JANUARY 26
32 PAGES /FC

As the hit miniseries comes to it’s conclusion, The Order finally make their move. The Guardians of the Globe find themselves up against the biggest threat they’ve faced to date and not everyone will make it out unscathed. Also in this issue: The final fate of Robot and Monster Girl is revealed!

128 PAGES / FC
$14.99
Before HACK/SLASH, TIM SEELEY introduced another critically acclaimed duo to the world in the form of dysfunctional superheroes, Lovebunny & Mr. Hell! Former sidekick Beth Bowers wants to be her own hero, but she's saddled with a sidekick of her own; the demonic, eternally hungry Mr. Hell! Long out of print, their twisted adventures return in an all new, volume in full color for the first time! Include EVERY appearance of LOVEBUNNY & MR.HELL to date including the HACK/SLASH strips and the crossover with Savage Dragon!
RETAILER WARNING: MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES


NOTE: I only have a one page story in this, but there it is. So, you know. Don't buy this for my sake. Buy it because you think it's cool or funny or whatever. Or because Tim Seeley is a cool guy.



SANTA CLAUS VS. THE MARTIANS #2 (of 4)
story BENITO CERENO
art & cover JAMES HARREN & DYLAN MCCRAE
JANUARY 5
32 PAGES / FC
$3.50
When unidentified flying objects snatch a couple of teens doing some heavy petting up at Inspiration Point, will the jolly old elf be able to fly the Little St. Nick fast enough to make sure they get back home for the holidays?




NOTE: On the one hand, this is not the final version of the cover. On the other hand, I am nearly positive this is the first time Bellsnickle has ever been on a comics cover. Can anyone confirm?

SANTA CLAUS VS. THE MARTIANS #3 (of 4)
story BENITO CERENO
art & cover JAMES HARREN & DYLAN MCCRAE
FEBRUARY 2
32 PAGES / FC
$3.50
After the Martians dare to invade Earth again after being driven off twice, Santa decides to use all the resources at his disposal to send them packing for good. What follows is an all-out battle across the skies for the fate of all humankind!


So that's what you have to look forward to in the next couple of months in terms of my Image output, everyone!

Upcoming from Dark Horse

So this is how I am accidentally going to be published by Dark Horse:



THE ADVENTURES OF DR. MCNINJA: NIGHT POWERS
Chris Hastings (W/A), Benito Cereno (W), and Les McClaine (P)
On sale Apr 20
FC, 232 pages
$19.99
TPB, 7" x 10"
What's better than an evil unicorn motorcycle, monster gang wars, a tennis match against a god of destruction, and bandidos on velociraptors?
…Yeah, we couldn't think of anything, either!
Award-winning cartoonist Chris Hastings teams up with Dark Horse Books to bring his smash-hit webcomic to print with the first three full-color story arcs of Dr. McNinja, as well as an exclusive-to-print story by Benito Cereno and Les McClaine.
• Collects "Monster Mart," "Death Volley," and "Doc Gets Rad" (previously published at www.drmcninja.com), and the new, exclusive-to-print story "Beyond Winter Wonderdome."
• Drmcninja.com receives up to 200,000 unique visitors on update days.


NOTE: The story here by me and Les, "Beyond Winter Wonderdome", is a full-length 24-page adventure. ALSO: it is in the same Christmas continuity as Santa Claus vs. the Martians, for all you continuity hounds out there.

Upcoming from New England Comics



(W) Benito Cereno (A) Les McClaine The Tick wants a pet and to prove to Arthur he can handle the responsibility, he volunteers to baby-sit for other pet-owning super-heroes. But, as can only happen in The City, those super-heroes have out-of-town business - all at once - leaving The Tick 'in charge' of a wild menagerie of strange super-pets who decide that 'when the owner's away, the pets will play!' Can The Tick and Arthur regain control over 'animals gone wild' before The City is turned into a wilderness itself?

AND SUPER IMPORTANTLY:



(W) Benito Cereno (A) Les McClaine The first 6 issues of the new and critically-acclaimed Tick series from the fertile minds of Benito Cereno and Les McClaine are collected for the first time! You will meet a whole new cast of characters like The Scarf Ace, Deperadoe, and the ever lethal Sewer Mimes to name but a few. Plus many other all-new wacky Tick exploits that are sure to be instant classics! All initial orders of this book will be signed and numbered by the whole New Series crew!

SO! If you are one of those people who have been telling me you're just waiting on the trade for this book, time to nut up or shut up! Here it is.

I would prefer you support local business and pre-order this from your local comic shop, in which case the order number for this book is DEC101018. It is on page 285 of the Previews catalog! Only pre-ordered editions will be signed and numbered!

If you are one of those people whose comic shops hate money and will refuse to order a book someone specifically asks for, look at all these goddamn places you can buy it online, AT A DISCOUNT:

HOLY SHIT LET ME GOOGLE THAT FOR YOU

So let's do this, okay? Okay.
