January 14, 2015 (Los Angeles, Calif.) - Archaia, an award-winning imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, is pleased to announce the February debut of the new original horror series Plunder. Author Swifty Lang (Feeding Ground) and artist Skuds McKinley bring us a tale of terror reminiscent of Captain Phillips and The Thing.

“Horror on the high seas,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “That’s what Swifty and Skuds have created with Plunder. This is a visceral horror story that has a killer setup and a flat-out intense narrative. Step on board for a wild journey!”

After facing off with an illegal Chinese vessel, a gang of Somali pirates tries to board what they think is a research vessel, only to find themselves in the midst of a massacre. As their worst nightmares become reality, the 14-year-old boy who went from translator to reluctant pirate not only becomes the key to survival, but must decide for himself how far he is willing to go in the name of self-preservation.

Plunder #1 arrives in comic shops on February 18th from Archaia with a main cover by series artist Skuds McKinley for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code DEC141206. Also available in limited quantities are a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Ramón K. Pérez (Hawkeye, Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand), and a retailer incentive cover by Daniele Serra (Fade to Black). Please check with your local comic shop on their availability.

REEDPOP AND EMERALD CITY COMICON JOIN FORCES TO PRODUCE THE ‘PREMIER COMIC BOOK AND POP CULTURE CONVENTION IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST’

Emerald City Comicon Joins the ReedPOP Family as Company Continues Rapid Growth as #1 Producer of Comic Conventions Across the Globe

NORWALK, CT – January 13, 2015 – ReedPOP, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events, is adding another show to its portfolio with the Emerald City Comicon (ECCC). Today, the company announces that the ‘premiere comic book and pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest’ has joined its family of leading experiential fan events. The partnership will take effect for next year’s eagerly anticipated event taking place March 27-29 in downtown Seattle.

ECCC, known for being a super fan-first and fan-oriented show, was founded in 2003 by local comics retailer Jim Demonakos and opened to 2,500 fans its first year. Since then, the show has grown exponentially reaching a record 70,000 in 2014 and an expected 80,000 in 2015, with 3-Day Tickets already sold out!  With new comic and celebrity guests each year, ECCC stands out for providing a unique experience for fans with a heart. Additionally, ECCC creates a charity art book each year since 2009 – Monsters & Dames - that has raised more than $75,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Demonakos had this to say about the partnership, “We are huge fans of what ReedPOP is doing across the globe in this pop culture space that ECCC also occupies and are excited to have them help us continue to deliver an amazing fan experience to our attendees. Moreso, we’re very much looking forward to bringing the ECCC brand of fan-focused attention to help amplify their events even further as well.”

Since ReedPOP’s first event in 2006, the sold-out New York Comic Con, the group has sought to produce exceptional experiences for passionate audiences and grow the industries surrounding these passions, and this philosophy has led to burgeoning attendance, the support of major creators and publishers and partnerships with leading entertainment brands including Lucasfilm (Star Wars Celebration), UFC (UFC Fan Expo) and Penny Arcade (PAX).

In recent years, ReedPOP has turned its attention internationally, recognizing pop culture audiences emerging throughout the world, where it has produced once-in-a-lifetime experiences for these new fans and connected exhibitors to these hungry, unexplored markets.  ReedPOP’s previous global events have been set in London, Germany and Singapore, and the company planted its biggest global flag to date last year in Australia, creating an Australian team to launch PAX Australia and partner with the Oz Comic-Con series of events. ReedPOP’s efforts in India were recently announced through a partnership with Comic Con India — with events in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The company also added Paris Comic Con into its fold as announced at last month’s New York Comic Con.

“The addition of ECCC to the ReedPOP family is a huge win and we couldn’t be more excited to see how we can make each other better,” said Lance Fensterman, ReedPOP’s Global Senior Vice President. “The ECCC team is tremendous and have put together an amazing show. I know there are things we can introduce to the mix and look even more forward to what the ECCC team can bring to all our events around the globe.”

ETHAN YOUNG’S NANJING BRINGS WORLD WAR II TO CHINA
from Bill, January 15th, 2015 9:34 pm, comic book

ETHAN YOUNG’S NANJING BRINGS WORLD WAR II TO CHINA

BRAVERY IN THE FACE OF THE ENEMYFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—In August, award-winning graphic novelist Ethan Young (Tails) brings bravery in the face of an overwhelming enemy to the forefront of one of the biggest mass murders of World War II.

Exploring the horrors of the Nanjing Massacre of 1937, Nanjing: The Burning City focuses on two abandoned Chinese soldiers trapped in the city as they desperately attempt to escape. Outnumbered by the invading Imperial Japanese Army, they’ll encounter the horrors and terrifying effects of war—but they’ll soon learn that no enemy can destroy the spirit of resistance and bravery.

Written and drawn by Independent Publisher Book Award winner Ethan Young, Nanjing: The Burning Citydelves into one of the most contentious events of World War II. Impeccably researched and drawn in Young’s critically acclaimed style, the original graphic novel brings new insight into one of World War II’s forgotten tragedies.

“My purpose with this book is not only to inform readers of the event, but also to stretch my storytelling skills,” Young told Robot 6. “I wanted to craft something both classical and cinematic, something I’ve never done on this scale. My hope is that anyone who picks up this book, without reading the words, can visually follow what’s going on.”

Nanjing: The Burning City hits stores August 2015 for $24.99.

Praise for Ethan Young

“Young’s style is fresh and accessible, conveying remarkable emotional tones through subtle use of lines, and consistently emphasizes the power of inking. It’s not surprising that Young finds plenty of work as an illustrator based upon his eye for striking single panel compositions, but his layouts and pacing are also memorable.”—The Beat
