Glitterbomb Launches in September!


Glitterbomb, my new creator-owned comic at Image co-created with Djibril-Morissette-Phan, will be arriving in early September (and we’ll have exclusive advance copies at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto if you’re going to be there). I’m incredibly excited for people to experience this new project and see what we’ve got cooking. If you’re interested, please pre-order from your local comic shop now to make sure you’ve got a copy waiting for you when it launches. Here’s the solicit listing…


SEPTEMBER 7 / 40 PAGES / FC / M / $3.99

Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. Her frustrations become an emotional lure for something horrifying out beyond the water…something ready to exact revenge on the shallow celebrity-obsessed culture that’s lead her astray.

Fan favorite Jim Zub (Wayward, Thunderbolts) and newcomer Djibril Morissette-Phan tear into the heart of Hollywood in GLITTERBOMB, a dramatic horror story about fame and failure.

The entertainment industry feeds on our insecurities, desires, and fears. You can’t toy with those kinds of primal emotions without them biting back…

“A gut-punch of glitz and blood and starf**ked culture. You want to read this.”
Chuck Wendig (Blackbirds)

“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)

“Sharply written and drawn, with deft insight into the trappings of celebrity culture, Glitterbomb just might be the ultimate Hollywood horror story.”
Karen Berger (Founder of DC’s Vertigo Imprint)
