Just announced over on Newsarama, my Dungeons & Dragons comic run continues with a new mini-series launching in December! Solicit text below:

Dungeons & Dragons: Frost Giant’s Fury #1

Jim Zub (w) • Netho Diaz (a) • Max Dunbar (c)
Mighty giants stir across the land and, before their crushing might, nothing is safe. Badly injured after their encounters in the Demiplane of Dread and now lost in the frozen northern reaches of the Forgotten Realms, the Baldur’s Gate heroes will be tested like never before. Roll for initiative, a new Dungeons & Dragons adventure begins!

FC • 32 pages • $3.99

* Dungeons & Dragons is seeing a renaissance with the release of the fifth edition rules in late 2014. Hundreds of thousands of players are returning to D&D or embarking on their first adventures and they’re hungry for extra content.

* Jim Zub returns with a new D&D story tying into the Storm King’s Thunder event that runs across multiple RPG products, novels, and video games.

* This series continues with the cast from the hit Legends of Baldur’s Gate and Shadows of the Vampire stories, but is also built as a perfect jumping on point for new readers, bringing them into D&D’s classic blend of sword & sorcery adventure.

Glitterbomb #1 Rushed to 2nd Printing!



The first issue is fast-tracked to second printing

“Taut, human, creepy s**t. Finding a new angle on the Hollywood meat factory is hard as hell, but this is all kinds of neat.” — Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE)

Image Comics is pleased to announce GLITTERBOMB #1 by Jim Zub and Djibril Morissette-Phan is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with demand.

The explosive new series is the story of Farrah Durante, a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. But the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture she’s drowning in isn’t the only problem—her frustrations are a powerful lure for something horrifying out beyond the water…something ready to strike.

GLITTERBOMB #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website, the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology, iOS, Android, and Google Play.

GLITTERBOMB #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code JUL168779), GLITTERBOMB #2 Cover A by Morissette-Phan (Diamond Code AUG160629), and Cover B by Marguerite Sauvage (Diamond Code AUG160630) will be available on Wednesday, October 12th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, September 19th.

Box Office Artist Interview

In this video interview from Fan Expo Canada artist James Raiz and I talk all about working in comics, collaborating with artists, and pitching publishers and then, as a bonus, he interviewed Djibril Morissette about his big break on Glitterbomb. Lots of good stuff here.

Zub Hosting Master Seminar on Comics Experience


I’m thrilled to announce that I’m working with Andy Schmidt at Comics Experience on a Master Seminar session all about organizing and managing comic and other creative projects. Discussion will include financial analysis, budget-building, finding collaborators, putting together an effective pitch, and approaching publishers.

There are many resources available for creators when it comes to art and writing, but understanding how to effectively build a project and carry it through to completion without losing your mind or your savings, that’s not something I’ve seen as much of, so when Andy approached me about hosting a session covering that hard to find material I agreed.

Past Comics Experience Master Seminars have been with industry luminaries including Brian Michael Bendis, Christos Gage, and Klaus Janson. It’s a pleasure to be brought on board to talk about the pitching and production process.


Click here for all the details, but here’s a bullet-point rundown of how it works:

• Held Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 10:00 AM Eastern Time until approximately 4:00 PM Eastern Time with a one-hour break for lunch.
• You will learn from both lectures and demonstrations presented by Jim Zub.
• You will be a part of a private Q&A with Zub and host Andy Schmidt.
• You will learn about financially planning a comic book project.
• You will learn how to find great collaborators.
• You will learn how to be a great collaborator.
• You will learn about the different avenues to publication.
• You will learn how to prepare a project to pitch it and how most effectively to pitch a project.

This Seminar is $295. For Creators Workshop members, a $50 discount is offered on the forums.

You’ll have access to a recording of the seminar for two full weeks after it’s held—including the Q&A portion.

Online registration only: To attend the Master Seminar: Building Your Comic Project with Jim Zub, you must register online. Enrollment is limited!

Glitterbomb, my new Hollywood horror comic published by Image, launched on Wednesday and we’re already getting a ton of positive feedback from readers and retailers. Let’s see what reviewers thought of our premiere issue…

Nerdist: 5/5 “Zub and Morrissette-Phan nail it. Glitterbomb #1 looks and reads great.”

4 Letter Nerd: “Glitterbomb #1 is a captivating start to what’s sure to be a brutal and mysterious story.”

Adult Podcast For Kids: “I cannot recommend this book enough. A fantastic read.”

Adventures in Poor Taste: 9.5/10 “Strong character work outshines an almost equally strong sense of dread and unease”

Beboti: 8/10 “Solid first issue, and one I am interested to see where it goes.”

Comic Uno: “I thought this was a really solid issue.”

Comics Alternative: “This one blew me away right out of the gate.”

Comics Grinder: “Glitterbomb provides a clever horror vibe as well as great biting social commentary.”

Critical Threat: “Farrah is one of the most instantly relatable characters I’ve read in comics, or any other media. I think it speaks to both Zub’s skill as a writer and Djibril Morissette-Phan’s talent as an artist.”

Daily Grindhouse: “this feels like the first installment of something very special indeed.”

Doomrocket: “Glitterbomb #1 rains horror and revenge onto the everything-is-beautiful Hollywood delusion to fantastic results. Highly recommended.”

Impulse Gamer: 4.9/5 “Overall, this new series has the potential to be the next sleeper hit from Image Comics. The story by Zub is intense, and it will grab the reader’s attention right from the start.”

Major Spoilers: 8/10 “Glitterbomb #1 makes a great first impression, with a strong story that overcomes some wobbles in the art, beautiful production values, and most of all, a hook that leaves me wanting more”

Metro News: “It’s a fascinating book, telling an important story about the way Hollywood devours women.”

Nerds on the Rocks: 8.5/10 “A key component into making Farrah a fully fleshed character in Glitterbomb #1 is the ability of Morissette-Phan to draw complex facial emotions.”

Nerdy Chatterbox: 9/10 “Mr. Zub’s story is intense and it grabs the reader’s attention right from the start. The artwork is first rate.”

Nothing But Comics: “Just as a single story, Glitterbomb #1 is about as good as it gets in terms of craft and enjoyment.”

Paste Magazine: “Zub and his artistic collaborators have plenty of directions to pursue, from the mythological to the social, leaving a body count along the way.”

Pastrami Nation: 9/10 “Image Comics gets it right once again as the drop a Glitterbomb on the industry. Zub, Morissette, and Russell have created something very different, very dark and very entertaining.”

Pop Culture Uncovered: 8/10 “I am curious to see where it goes from here.”

Pop Nerd TV: 10/10 “Even with the fantastical elements in the story, the struggle of a veteran actor/actress looking for work seems so real and makes for a very enticing tale”

Primary Ignition: “the issue really belongs to penciller Djibril Morissette-Phan and colorist K. Michael Russell. The sheer despair and hopelessness injected into Farrah make her almost immediately relatable as a character.”

Retcon Punch: “a confident and surprising first issue. Coming from such a young team of artists this is surprising but like the evil that infects Farrah, it’s exciting because the future is unknown.”

Reading With a Flight Ring: “This will surprise, thrill and entertain you in all the ways will leave you wanting more.”

Talking Comic Books: “Glitterbomb #1 dives head-first into the shallow world of LA’s fame-obsessed culture. It uses biting commentary to paint a grim picture of the daily life of a working actress.”

TM Stash: 9/10 “Glitterbomb is an amazingly well written story, an amazing tale from the very first panel!”

TorAthena: “A brilliant comic mixed with reality and intrigue.”

Ultimate Comics: “Even without the scary parts, this was going to be an amazing book.”

We The Nerdy: 9.5/10 “Glitterbomb #1 is a great comic that I fully expect to be the start of a great series.”
