FANS WILL FALL FOR VIOLENT LOVE
These bank robbers will steal readers’ hearts
Creators Frank J. Barbiere (FIVE GHOSTS, The Revisionist) and artist Victor Santos (THE MICE TEMPLAR, Polar) team up for a fresh, pulp-infused criminal romance in VIOLENT LOVE. The new ongoing series is set to launch from Image Comics this November.

In VIOLENT LOVE, readers meet Daisy Jane and Rock Bradley—two of the most notorious bank robbers in the American Southwest. And then they fell in love.

Violent Love is a dream project for me in a lot of ways. First and foremost, I think Victor is one of the most talented graphic storytellers around, and it’s an honor to be collaborating with him and have him as my co-creator on Violent Love,” said Barbiere. “I’m also thrilled to be back at Image where I launched my career in comics. I’m a big fan of crime in comics, and I think it’s very important to find something new and interesting to say within the genre. With Violent Love, we’re bringing a unique style, story structure, and romantic angle to crime comics—we can’t wait for you to fall in love with these characters and see where our story goes."

Santos added: "My first work in the U.S. was at Image—a graphic novel titled Zombee. This was ten years ago, Image was different but promising. Later I worked on Mice Templar for almost five years. I am proud of how Image has been linked to my career, always giving me the chance to develop personal projects. Now with Violent Love, I am a more experienced artist and can again work with a close collaborator—a talented writer and a good friend—on the kind of stories I love to do and read. This book has the big words: Romance, Crime, Violence, Betrayal, and Love. I'm sure you’ll fall in love with this couple of rebel souls."

VIOLENT LOVE begins the adventure with a double-sized issue that oozes style and will rope readers in with its fast-paced action.

VIOLENT LOVE #1 Cover A (Diamond Code SEP160635) and Cover B (Diamond Code SEP160636) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, November 9th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 17th.

ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY
AND READERS WILL NEVER WANT TO LEAVE

An original graphic novella
filled with enchanting stories come to life
Writer W. Maxwell Prince and artist John Amor (Judas: The Last Days) bring an original graphic novella, ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY, to Image Comics this December.

ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY is an experimental graphic novella which recounts a troublesome week in a magical Library via seven short stories—one for each day—that use comics, infographics, prose, and poetry to play with the graphic medium and explore the multivalent world of living narrative.

“Telling stories isn’t easy for me,” said W. Maxwell Prince. “I often find myself really interested in one thing, but then boring of that quickly and moving on to something completely different. This book allowed me to embrace that attention deficit while simultaneously building something with a solid center. The end result, I think, is really fun. It doesn’t move in the ways that comics usually do, but it’s still identifiably a comic book. Except for when it’s not, of course.”

Welcome to the Library. It’s here that every story ever written is catalogued and monitored by a single man, who’s begun to notice something strange: the books are rebelling.

ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY with cover art by Frazer Irving (Diamond Code SEP160780) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, December 7th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 24th.

ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY trade paperback (ISBN 978-1-5343-0022-4) can also be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.
