NEW SERIES! Sadie Ritter is sixteen years old, nine months pregnant, and scared out of her sweet nerdy mind. Having a baby that young is tough, but with the support of her loving family behind her, everything should be okay. OH YEAH, and also her baby is the antichrist and it’s going to break open the barriers between the earthly and demonic planes and unleash eternal suffering to all of humankind. Other than that, though…should be fine. From the writer of Buzzkill, Paybacks, Redneck and the break-out hit God Country comes a pulse-pounding new series with art from THE REVISIONIST’s Garry Brown!
Join us on Wednesday, February 1st for a celebration of 25 years of publisher Image Comics! We’ll be joined by Image creators Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects, The Red Wing) and Donny Cates (God Country) and maybe even another local Image creator or two!
On February 1, 1992 seven comics superstars Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino came together to form their own company that would ultimately change the landscape of comics forever. Current partners McFarlane, Valentino, Kirkman, Larsen, and Silvestri collectively have brought creator-owned comics to the forefront of industry change and, after 25 years of amazing storytelling freedom, Image is pleased to celebrate the milestone anniversary with Image Day-Feb. 1, 2017.
Image Comics wouldn’t have succeeded without the tremendous creativity and passion of its creators, the unwavering support of retailers, bookstores, and libraries, or the unbridled and unrelenting enthusiasm of the fans who show up each and every Wednesday to purchase Image titles. On Image Comics Day we celebrate together, nationwide, the exciting legacy that Image’s creator-owned publishing model has cultivated as we prepare for the next 25 years of amazing creator-owned comics to come.
Donny Cates returns to Austin Books for the premiere of his new Image Comics title God Country, but this time he’s bringing artist Geoff Shaw!
Meet the creative team of the highly-anticipated series, get your issues signed, and chat about their projects past, present, and future!
About God Country:
Emmet Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia, isn’t just a problem for his children—his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home—as well as the surrounding West Texas town—a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. The enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He’s now the only man who can face the otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State…

The sequel to the critically acclaimed, best-selling graphic novel Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm! In this “adaptation” of Derrick Storm’s second novel, the private investigator is hired to bug an African head of state’s hotel suite – but the routine mission quickly spirals out of control when Storm overhears a woman’s terrifying scream on the wire. Plagued by the victim’s helpless cry, Storm – despite an ominous warning – investigates. Soon, he’ll discover an international conspiracy reaching further than he ever imagined – and perhaps the truth about Clara Strike, a CIA agent the world thinks is dead! RICHARD CASTLE’S STORM SEASON reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis and Kelly Sue DeConnick for their second Castle story, and the dynamic artwork of rising star Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor) brings the world of Derrick Storm to life like never before.
