————————ANNOUNCEMENT———————-

Due to AJ’s advanced age, he mistakenly states that this is Episode #195 when in fact it is Episode #196.  It is all AJ’s fault and he is being committed to an elderly facility ASAP.

Image Comics is pleased to reveal a very special Rob Liefeld variant cover to the #23 issue of Liefeld’s highly anticipated BLOODSTRIKE BRUTALISTS arc featuring story and artwork by Michel Fiffe (COPRA). This variant cover introduces an all-new character—The Pouch!

“Since the moment I introduced The Pouch on my social media, the fans have exploded with support and enthusiasm!” said Liefeld. “The truest definition of ‘because you demanded it!’ The Pouch comes to life on the cover and in an interior story included in Bloodstrike Brutalists 2!”

In BRUTALISTS Part Two, bureaucratic overlords with morbid agendas need love, too. What lengths will they go to? A string of gruesome murders, a deadly disease, and a dark conspiracy; for Bloodstrike, that’s a Tuesday.

BLOODSTRIKE #23 will hit stores on Wednesday, June 27th.

In this episode AJ discusses his idea for an underwater murder mystery.

 

In this new format, join AJ and he sits down and discusses his comic book ideas.  This will be the first in a long series to help relaunch the podcast.

Eisner-nominated writer Christopher Sebela (High CrimesHeartthrobWe(l)come Back), artist Joshua Hixson (The Black Woods), and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou (Felix & Macabber) team up for the all-new revenge thriller SHANGHAI RED, coming this June from Image Comics.

“Moving to Portland, Oregon was the thing that jump-started my comics career, so I wanted to pay it back the best way I know how: by putting it in a book,” said Sebela. “After studying its history and going on a tour of the Shanghai Tunnels, I came out with Red, our main character. She’s as bloody and complicated as the city she’s come back to, and getting to do justice to both of them alongside Josh and Hassan has made this book a dream/nightmare come true for me.”

Red is one of hundreds shanghaied out of Portland in the late 1800s. Drugged, kidnapped, and sold to a ship’s captain, she wakes up on a boat headed out to sea for years, unable to escape or reveal who she truly is. Now, she’s on her way back, in a boat covered in blood, to find her family—and to track down the men responsible for stealing her life out from under her. Continue reading

Strap in for an all-new science fiction tale from
Joseph Keatinge and Bret Blevins

Writer Joseph Keatinge (GLORY, SHUTTER) and legendary artist Bret Blevins (New MutantsSleepwalker) team up for the spacefaring series STELLAR—created by Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri—this June from Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment.

Stellar was taken as a child and transformed into the ultimate weapon, one that would end an intergalactic war. She succeeded…at everything except finding peace. Now, she’s reduced to bounty hunting, scouring the worlds she’s broken in search of redemption.

But there are other weapons loose in the galaxy, and it seems they just can’t leave the war behind them. Continue reading

Convention season is in full swing and Forbidden Panel is right where we want to be: right in the middle of it! We received a wonderful response from old and new fans welcoming us back to Wonder Con in Anaheim this year. AJ Herrera and crew introduced several new books, as well as creating a new fan base for our existing titles.

On Friday night after a full first day at the convention, we had our annual Wonder Con company dinner.  The food was terrific and the company was even better. Our friends and family showed up to hang out, talk about the day, and make plans for the rest of the weekend.

There were many highlights to the first convention of the season that included Forbidden Panel. These included admiring the many, amazing cosplayers wandering around the convention center, meeting and sharing our books with popular celebrities, and for me (Andrea), it was attending the Lucifer Panel on Sunday.

April was a busy month for us that also included our 24-hour Create Something Day. “Create Something Day” has become a way for members of Forbidden Panel, as well as other artists and creators, to come together and work on their projects over a 24-hour period. It’s a fun a way to finish projects, visit with like minded individuals and at times catch up on your favorite movies. Check our Facebook page for the next one!

Stay tuned for our coming events, as May is going to be another exciting month for us. We can’t wait to share it with all of you!
