Glitterbomb is a comic that's never what you expect it to be. It's a story about an actress struggling to regain her fame in an sexist, abusive industry and when the resentment she feels manifests in horrifying and incomprehensible ways, she decides to get her revenge. With the first miniseries complete and a collection on the horizon, ComicsAlliance chatted to Jim Zub and Djibril Morissette-Phan about their unique Hollywood tragedy and what the future has in store for the series.
The end of the year is a time of reflection in many ways, and that often means thinking about and assessing what the very best releases in any particular medium were. As we prepare to cross the threshold into 2017, we've been collecting some of the best covers of the year by publisher for your perusal, and today we're looking at fifty of the best comic book covers released from Image Comics in 2016.
This fall, Jim Zub, Djibril Morissett-Phan, K. Michael Russell, and Marshall Dillon will launch Glitterbomb through Image Comics. The story follows an actress named Farrah caught in the Hollywood trap of daring to age, whose frustrations summon something from beyond --- something she may not entirely be able to control. This new horror comic hones in on the effects of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the terrifying results of its grind on the people it chews up.
Ahead of Glitterbomb's release, Jim Zub takes us behind the scenes of the creation of the book, from its earliest days as a mere concept, all the way through the final printed pages kicking off the first issue.
