Pre-order ATLANTIS ATTACKS #1 TODAY!

Hey, friends! This is just a quick reminder that TODAY is the last day to pre-order ATLANTIS ATTACKS #1, written by yours truly with art by Ario Anindito, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and a cover by Rock-He Kim! See below for a bit of gorgeous interior art to whet your appetite!

The story continues the new Agents of Atlas saga that began in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS with a mighty showdown with King Namor, fresh off his INVADERS series.

Wave, Marvel’s breakout Filipina superheroine, will play a big role in the story. And the series will absolutely MATTER for our young heroes — Amadeus Cho in particular. Secrets revealed! Lines crossed! Lives altered!

The series will also feature the beloved old-school Agents of Atlas from the original series by Parker, Kirk, and company!

Ask your local comic shop to pre-order it for you today!

Hope ya dig and thanks so much as always!

Do you think I can fit any more exclamation points into this post???!!!!?!?!

2019.11.13 – STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 in stores today!

Big day today! I’ve got three books in comic book stores — STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4!

STAR WARS #74, drawn by Phil Noto with letters by Clayton Cowles, is the penultimate chapter in our run. The three different threads of our story come together as our heroes scramble to entrap Vader himself! Featuring the Wookiee/Sith fight you’ve always wanted!

RONIN ISLAND #8 features art by Giannis Milonogiannis, colors by Irma Kniivila, and letters by Simon Bowland. This remains one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on this decade, and the emotional stakes ramp up again in this issue for Hana and Kenichi. In a rave review, Fanbase Press says:

In issue number 8, a character is faced with having to make a difficult choice, and they don’t just continue on unaffected by it; they stop, and the reader is allowed to live in the character’s emotions. It’s a beautiful moment, and one of the reasons I love Ronin Island.

You can read the whole review here.

AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 features art by Nico Leon and Pop Mhan, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and letters by Joe Sabino. I love the little character moments that Nico and Pop are rendering so beautifully in this book. Don’t miss Wave and Sword Master finally getting paid and Isaac flirting with Raz! And yes, we’re getting up into major cliffhanger action here — with big ramifications for the upcoming ATLANTIS ATTACKS series!

Ask your local comic shop to hold all these comics for ya! Thanks so much!

2019.09.04 – AGENTS OF ATLAS #2 in stores today!

I continue to be blown away by the support folks have given to all of our AGENTS OF ATLAS-related books, including SWORD MASTER, AERO, and of course AGENTS OF ATLAS. The second issue of AGENTS OF ATLAS just hit stores today, and I hope you’ll check it out if you have the chance.

Here’s what ComicBook.com‘s Matthew Aguilar had to say about the latest issue:

…a topical take on how we view borders and territory that grows in mystery and intrigue with every issue, especially on the last page of this one, and I for one am totally sold on sticking around to find out what’s really going on. Actually, you could say I’m sold on the Agents of Atlas. Period.

The book’s drawn by the great Nico Leon with an assist by the great Pop Mhan, with gorgeous colors from Federico Blee and lovely letters from Joe Sabino.

Ask your local comic shop to hold a copy for you or buy it in digital form at Comixology!

WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #2 sells out, gets a second printing!

Fun news — WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #2 has sold out at the distributor level and is getting a second printing with a new cover of gorgeous interior art from Gang Hyuk Lim and Federico Blee! Please do ask your local retailer to order a copy for you today! (H/T Sanctum Santorum Comics for the tip and the image!)

In previous news, WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 also sold out and is getting a gorgeous second printing cover by Jeehyung Lee featuring Luna Snow. That second printing hits comic shops on June 12.

AGENTS OF ATLAS gets its own series starting this August!

Because of your tremendous support the new Agents of Atlas team featured in WAR OF THE REALMS: NEW AGENTS OF ATLAS is getting its own series starting this August! AGENTS OF ATLAS, written by yours truly with interior art by Nico Leon and a cover by Jung-Geun Yoon, will follow Amadeus Cho, Jimmy Woo, Silk, Wave, and the other heroes of the WOTR: NAOA miniseries as they grapple with the creation of Pan, a cross-Asian portal city made up of slices of neighborhoods of Asian neighborhoods from across the globe!

You can read all about it in this AP article. Here’s an excerpt:

The man leading the heroic charge is veteran comic book writer Greg Pak. Pak is credited with ushering in a new era of Asian characters in co-creating Amadeus Cho, a Korean-American genius teen. The character first appeared in 2005. A decade later, he absorbed the Hulk’s powers and started going by Brawn.

“It’s always been my dream to do a team book using a bunch of Asian and Asian American heroes,” said Pak, who thinks there’s more appetite for representation with the success of the movie “Crazy Rich Asians.” ″There’s literally never been a better time in my memory with more opportunities for doing work that specifically includes Asian and Asian American characters.”

AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 will also include a backup story by Jeff Parker and Carlo Pagulayan that will reveal what’s going on with Jimmy Woo’s original Agents of Atlas team.

The response to this announcement has been overwhelming and I’m so grateful to everyone who’s made this possible! Please do contact your local comic book shop and ask them to pre-order every issue in the series for you today! The more pre-orders the book gets, the better the chances that we’ll be able to keep the series going for a long time.

Thanks so much!
