A press release from Ricky Claydon of Titan Comics:
Titan Comics goes big in 2013 – with original, creator-owned series by new and world-renowned talent!
Titan Comics is the bold new imprint from the world-leading publisher – offering the best original creator-owned comics alongside new and classic graphic novels!
Titan Comics helps creators shape their ideas into the best comics possible. Combining unique voices and visions with strong marketing and a trusted brand, Titan Comics is the ultimate expression of our editorial, design and sales experience.
The imprint launches in July 2013 with two creator-owned miniseries and four brand-new collections, with a new series beginning each month afterwards: debut Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol by writer/artist Stuart Jennett (Marvel UK); newly colored Numbercruncher by X-Men: Legacy writer Si Spurrier and 2000AD artist P.J. Holden; Ring of Roses – collected in color for the first time, by writer Das Petrou and artist John Watkiss; Thrud The Barbarian by writer/artist Carl Critchlow (2000AD, Magic: The Gathering); plus never-before-published volumes in a complete library of The First Kingdom by comic legend Jack Katz!
The next wave will see three new series launching later in the year: Gravestown by writer Roger Gibson and artist Vince Danks (Harker), and Surface Tension by writer/artist Jay Gunn hit stores in September, while Death Sentence by writer Monty Nero and artist Mike Dowling (2000AD, Rex Royd) continues the new line into October.
As well as all-new creator-owned titles, Titan Comics continues to restore and reprint the best classic material, bringing back seminal titles in lovingly-produced volumes.
“This is the start of something very special,” says Nick Landau, Publisher of Titan Comics. “We’re searching out fantastic new voices and astonishing new artists, and helping them bring their dream projects to fruition – as well as remaining a world-leader in the field of classic comics restoration and republication.”
Steve White, Senior Comics Editor, says readers can expect, “the same level of quality we’ve delivered across Titan’s huge portfolio of licensed publications – coupled to the blazing imaginations of the next generation of independent creators.”
Each new release will also be available to read day and date on the iPhone, iPad, Web, Android and Kindle Fire.
