THE LAST SIEGE #2 and the WASTELAND Compendium Volume 2 are on sale now! by Justin Greenwood

THE LAST SIEGE #2 main cover by Justin Greenwood and Brad Simpson

THE LAST SIEGE #2 went on sale last week on 4th of July. We did a fun signing at Cape and Cowl in Oakland, CA and I've been on the road post-holiday but wanted to make sure it was noted and up here. The violence picks up as we get a taste for who Feist really is what he's capable of. Nasty fella.

From the solicit: 

The mysterious Stranger prepares the castle for war, while Feist and his men struggle to avoid the executioner's axe. With little hope, and less time, the Stranger unveils his secret weapon.

Writer: Landry Q Walker

Colorist: Eric Jones

This one featured a variant cover by the great Gabriel Hardman, as seen below. LOVE this cover.

WASTELAND Compendium V2 cover art by Christopher Mitten

What a book this is! The 2nd half  of the long running series WASTELAND from Oni Press is collected here, including both arcs of the book that I worked on. I really enjoyed drawing parts of this story and it was the first time I got to work with my pal Antony Johnston, who I later re-teamed with to create our sci-fi crime series THE FUSE.

619 Pages! This thing is a beast.

From the solicit: 

The conclusion to the sprawling tale, collecting issues #32-60!  After leaving the Dog Tribes and Newbegin behind, Michael and Abi continue across the desert in search A-Ree-Yass-I. Joined by another who shares their strange gifts, the tensions between them nearly jeopardize their quest while Newbegin prepares for war. When they finally uncover the fabled land, it will take everything they have to unearth the truth... and then the story of The Big Wet can be told!

RCCC 2015 by Justin Greenwood

Hey, I’m going to be a returning guest of Rose City Comic Con (rosecitycomiccon) this weekend and I’m pumped about spending a little time in Portland again. I had a great time at this show last year and looking forward to Round 2, so drop by and say hello!

You can find me at table K-13.

I’m coming with a bunch of gear this year, lots of original art and sketches for sale alongside books like THE FUSE, STUMPTOWN and fresh copies of STRINGERS #1. I’ll also be taking on a couple commissions at the show so let me know if you want to be on that list.

I’ll also be at appearing at these signings/events:

Saturday- 5pm signing at Oni Press (onipress) Booth #607

Sunday- 11:30 am Panel “Image Comics: Where Creators Own Everything”
Room: Panel Room 3

Sunday- 1:00 pm signing at Oni Press  (onipress) Booth #607

Original Art for STUMPTOWN #5 and THE FUSE #9 now available! by Justin Greenwood

Fresh off the presses, original interior art is available for STUMPTOWN V3 #5 and THE FUSE #9 is up and for sale at the site at ComiConArt!

This caps off the arc for STUMPTOWN Volume 3 so all the availabe art for this series is now there if you want to have a look. We’ll be adding the cover to the collection in a month or two when that books is available.

I’ve been holding on to the covers for this arc of THE FUSE, mostly because I’m not sure how to offer them yet because they connect and the last one hasn’t been solicited yet (I think). I’ll update when I can figure out the best way to offer them.

Check out some of my favorites from this group below:

 THE FUSE #7 ON SALE 
  THE FUSE #7  goes on sale this week, beginning Volume 2, and a new case for the Midway City Homicide division —  ‘Gridlock’ ! 
 
 22,000 MILES UP, THERE IS (STILL) NO BACKUP. 
 They call it Gridlocking — maglev-bike races across the Fuse’s vast solar arrays. Fast, dangerous, and very illegal. When a gridlocker turns up dead, Klem and Ralph begin their own race to catch a killer! 
 PLUS: Bonus backup strip  'Tabloid’  starts this issue! 
 
 That backup strip is a new six-part thriller by young bucks  Ian Mayor  and  Mack Chater , exploring the  dangerous life of a Fuse journalist  chasing the big stories.  'Tabloid’  will run throughout Vol 2, alongside  'Gridlock’ . 
 And the gorgeous variant cover seen here is by the rather awesome Jenny Frison, of REVIVAL and RED SONJA fame. We love it. 
 THE FUSE #7 is available from all good comics stores with the order code  SEP140719  (regular) and  SEP140720  (Frison). Or you can get it digitally from  Comixology  and  Image Comics . And before all that, you can read a  six-page preview here on Tumblr . 
 
 So glad to have Klem and Ralph back on the case and on shelves Wednesday!

 THE FUSE: Issue #6 on sale, London signing, and more 
 Issue #6 of  THE FUSE  goes on sale this week, bringing our first story arc,  ‘The Russia Shift’ , to its conclusion: 
 
 THEIR FIRST CASE — SOLVED! Klem’s got it all figured out. But will she live to tell anyone? Can Ralph get to her in time? Who’s gonna get shot? And can someone, anyone, please explain why it’s called the ‘Russia shift’? Well, if you insist… 
 
 This is where all the clues get put together, the truth is finally revealed, and Klem and Ralph get to close their first case. 
 You can  read a preview of the issue on Tumblr  (there’s a preview on the usual sites, too, but the tumblr one is longer). The order code for this issue is  MAY140705 . 
  Then, in a month’s time,  THE FUSE Vol 1: The Russia Shift  will go on sale. As you’ve doubtless figured out, this collects the first story arc in one handy-dandy volume, for the princely sum of just $9.99. (The way the exchange rate is going at the moment, I think that comes to about 50p.) 
 The comic store order code for Vol 1 is  JUN140504 , and the ISBN for bookstores is  978-1632150080 . 
   • I’ll also be  appearing at Forbidden Planet London on Saturday Aug 30  to sign copies of THE FUSE VOl 1 — and we’ll have some exclusive giveaways for readers (including  UMBRAL  readers, too). I’ll post more about that closer to the time.  
  Finally, in November THE FUSE will return with issue #7, and a brand new case;  Gridlock ! 
 'Gridlocking’ is an illegal sport where racers speed across the Fuse’s vast solar arrays on magnetic bikes; and when the sport’s top racer turns up dead, Klem and Ralph find themselves drawn into a surprisingly murky world of speed, egos, and drugs… 
 Issue #7 is on sale November 5, and in addition to the fantastic regular cover from Justin that you see here, we’ll also have a special variant from the brush of  the amazing Jenny Frison, of REVIVAL fame ! We’re very excited about that, and we hope you will be, too. More soon. 
 
 SPEED. EGOS. DRUGS. Are you excited?!? I’m excited.
