SOUTHERN BASTARDS – Early Praise & Excitement For New Crime Series

tumblr_mziejs4s2E1syn0mbo1_1280.png

Welcome to Craw County, Alabama: breeding ground for bastards and the setting of Jason Aaron (Scalped, Wolverine, The X-Men, Thor: God of Thunder) and Jason Latour’s (​Loose Ends, Wolverine & The X-Men, Django Unchained) new ongoing crime series SOUTHERN BASTARDS. Comic creators and critics everywhere have already dubbed this forthcoming crime series a must-read. SOUTHERN BASTARDS #1 arrives in stores on 4/30 and is available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code FEB140475.

Advance praise for SOUTHERN BASTARDS:

Jason Aaron and Jason Latour’s Southern Bastards #1 was exactly the kind of pulp goodness I live for.”
—Ed Brubaker (FATALE, Captain America)

Can I just take a second to recommend Southern Bastards by the mighty Jason Aaron? Literally the best book I’ve read this month. Order!” —Mark Millar (STARLIGHT, JUPITER’S LEGACY, Kick-Ass)

Southern Bastards by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour made me both terrified and homesick. Fantastic start, boys.
—Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye)

Southern Bastards is perfection. There’s this great, slow menace to it. Southern Bastards #1 is a perfect comic for you if you like to read… anything.” —Scott Snyder (WYTCHES, Batman)

You need Southern Bastards. Jason Aaron is back to southern-fried grit and Jason Latour is showing he’s one of the best cartoonists of our generation.”
—Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, Punisher)

The gushing about Southern Bastards is completely on point. Jason Aaron nails it (as usual), but Jason Latour is the rocketship here.
—Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, Avengers)

This series both pokes fun at and honors their shared roots. Aaron’s gritty noir storytelling blends perfectly with Latour’s sharp artwork, creating the ideal setting for a mesmerizing, down home crime story.
—Comic Book Resources

Southern Bastards #1 is an engrossing first issue, an unnerving introduction to what looks to be dark, violent, and sad. In other words, exactly what you want Aaron and Latour to be doing. A proper Southern Gothic hiding in the skin of a trash genre, Southern Bastards is a must-read.
—ComicsAlliance

“Southern Bastards is totally worthy of insane hype. This is a book crafted with care on every level. It’s poignant and brutal. It’s over the top in all the right ways and completely subdued at the same time. It’s a beautiful dance in pacing that effortlessly shows how comics should be and need to be done.”
—Bloody Disgusting

unnamed

Image Comics is pleased to announce the release of ten new Image Firsts editions, printings the first issues of popular series that only cost $1.

These new releases will be available in stores on May 1, just in time to coincide with Free Comic Book Day.

The ten new titles are Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn’s ALEX + ADA #1, Rick Remender and Matteo Scalera’s BLACK SCIENCE #1, Rick Remender and Wesley Craig’s DEADLY CLASS #1, Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta’s EAST OF WEST #1, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark’s LAZARUS #1, Chris Dingess and Matthew Roberts’ MANIFEST DESTINY #1, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Ríos’s PRETTY DEADLY #1, Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky’s SEX CRIMINALS #1, Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s VELVET #1, and Ales Kot and Michael Walsh’s ZERO #1.

And, back by popular demand, Image Firsts editions of two classic Image Comics series will be made available once again. SAGA #1 will be available with Diamond code OCT128195 and THE WALKING DEAD #1 will be available with Diamond code OCT128199.

ALEX + ADA #1
A sci-fi drama set in the near future and perfect for fans of the TV show Fringe and the Spike Jonze film Her. The last thing in the world Alex wanted was an X5, the latest in realistic androids. But when Ada is dropped into his life, will Alex keep her? Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148356.

BLACK SCIENCE #1
Grant McKay, former member of The Anarchistic Order of Scientists, has finally done the impossible: he has deciphered Black Science and punched through the barriers of reality. But what lies beyond the veil is not epiphany, but chaos. Now Grant and his team are lost, living ghosts shipwrecked on an infinite ocean of alien worlds, barreling through the long-forgotten, ancient, and unimaginable dark realms. The only way is forward. The only question is how far are they willing to go, and how much can they endure, to get home again? Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148357.

DEADLY CLASS #1
Welcome to the most brutal high school on Earth, where the world’s top crime families send the next generation of assassins to be trained. Murder is an art. Killing is a craft. At King’s Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, the dagger in your back isn’t always metaphorical, nor is your fellow classmates’ poison. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148358.

EAST OF WEST #1
He has been called Abaddon. The Reaper. Fool’s Bane. The Grey Walker. You speak his name in hushed tones, if at all. You fear him and all he represents. He is the ultimate state of all things. He is Death. But, in the past, Death found peace. For his betrayal, the rest of the Four Horsemen snatched happiness away from him forever. Now, Death rides with Crow and Wolf in search of those who wronged him. We would tell you to pray, but it wouldn’t do any good. You have earned what is coming to you. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148359.

LAZARUS #1
In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law. A handful of Families rule, jealously guarding what they have and exploiting the Waste who struggle to survive in their domains. Forever Carlyle defends her family’s holdings through deception and force as their protector, their Lazarus. Shot dead defending the family home, Forever’s day goes downhill from there… Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148360.

MANIFEST DESTINY #1
In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out on an expedition to explore the uncharted American frontier. This is the story of what they discovered lurking in the wilds… Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148361.

PRETTY DEADLY #1
Sandman meets Preacher in PRETTY DEADLY, where Death’s daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her tale of retribution is as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148362.

SEX CRIMINALS #1
Suzie’s a normal girl with an extraordinary ability: when she has sex, she stops time. One night she meets Jon… who has the same gift. And so they do what any other sex-having, time-stopping, couple would do: they rob banks. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148363.

VELVET #1
When the world’s best secret agent is killed, Velvet Templeton, the Personal Assistant to the Director of the Agency, is drawn off her desk and back into the field for the first time in nearly 20 years… and is immediately caught in a web of mystery, murder and high-octane action. Sexy and provocative, VELVET is a dark twist on the spy genre. Image Firsts edition is available with Diamond code FEB148364.

ZERO #1
Edward Zero is the perfect execution machine—a spy who breaks the rules to get things done. When a stolen device appears in the center of a long-running conflict, Zero comes to retrieve it. The problem is, the device is inside a living, breathing, bio-modified terrorist and there’s an entire army after it. Image Firsts edition available with Diamond code FEB148365.
