cover C: RAY FAWKES
cover D: JOHN WORKMAN

DECEMBER 10 / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $3.50


INDIANA JONES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY RETURNS IN AN ALL-NEW STORY ARC! Kate Kristopher’s finally face-to-face with the sibling she never knew about, who’s dead set on destroying what little Kate has left. Family rivalry was never so cataclysmic in the globe-trotting and mind-melting second arc of the comic book ROBERT KIRKMAN (THE WALKING DEAD) describes as “so completely and utterly new that it reminds you of the potential of this medium!” ALL THIS PLUS: say hello to SHUTTER’s new letterer, the legendary JOHN WORKMAN (Thor, Doom Patrol, Heavy Liquid) with his commemorative variant cover and a comprehensive career retrospective written by SHEA HENNUM!

+

BONUS: Image Comics is inducting SHUTTER into its Image Firsts program where they, in their words, “reprint the first issues of some of our most popular series for only $1.” So, you’ll be able to get the entire first issue of Shutter in comic book form for only a buck, on THE SAME DAY #7 is in-stores.

TECH JACKET #6
story: JOE KEATINGE
art / cover: KHARY RANDOLPH & EMILIO LOPEZ

DECEMBER 3 / 32 PAGES / FC / T+ / $2.99


Where Zack Thompson has failed against the Colossal, can the Tech Jacket Corps succeed? It’s the most amazing action comic you’ll read all year!

The end (until December) is here.

This Wednesday. September 17th. 2014. A.D.

People (and not-people) are reunited. Revelations start coming. Blood’s drawn. 

The fuller picture opens up (THE SHUTTER, IF YOU WILL)* placing Kate & co. in a very different place than when the series began and kicking off our next big arc, taking us to… well, you’ll see.

*sorry not sorry

P.S. I can’t imagine I’m alone in thinking that Leila draws some of the best Totally Normal Fish comics has ever seen.

P.P.S. If you’re at Rose City Comic Con this weekend, Leila and I will be at tables G-09 + 10, selling our Shutter wares (including our Us-Only exclusive Shutter #1 sketch cover featuring real life sketches by Leila [or me if you’d like to burn some money]) AND some copies of #6. Maybe some other stuff, but more on that later.

Here’s a bunch of pages from Tech Jacket #3 out in stores today, drawn by Khary Randolph, colored by Dave McCaig, lettered by Rus Wooten and written by me. There are 17 more pages of Khary drawing a bunch of cool punching inside a gigantic space thing. Maybe it’s a spaceship. Maybe it’s a monster. It’s all drawn pretty damn awesome.
