When Image Comics has new titles to announce, it doesn't play by halves; the publisher has been known to throw down a massive number of awesome sounding titles led by amazing creators, before dropping the mic as if to say, "Top that".

Last night at Emerald City Comic Con, the publisher did exactly that as it announced fifteen new comics and original graphic novels, including new work from Jeff Lemire, Declan Shalvey and Matt Wagner.

Pretty Deadly, by Kelly Sue DeConnick, Emma Rios, and Jordie Bellaire, is a story about stories. It's a fantasy western about Death's daughter Ginny, but it's truly a gorgeous, lyrical, epic poem about myth itself. And like traditional epic poems, there's love, and death, and vengeance.

We've put together a Pretty Deadly mixtape with a vaguely "Americana" style, with songs whose lyrics contain grand narratives about death. Expect murder ballads galore.

Welcome To The Gun Show: ‘Deadpool Versus The Punisher’ By Fred Van Lente And Pere Perez

Deadpool_vs_The_Punisher_1_Featured

Those two Marvel guys you like with the guns are in one book together this spring.

Deadpool Versus The Punisher is a five-issue miniseries written by Fred Van Lente with art by Pere Perez. It seems like this is something that should have already happened by now, but I'm sure there's an appetite for it either way. The guy with all the weapons and the sense of humor who can't be killed, versus the guy with even more weapons and no sense of humor, who can be killed but somehow never dies. It's a match made in gun-based-crossover heaven.

Scott Snyder Reveals How He Keeps The Villains Scary In ‘All-Star Batman’ [Interview]

ASB0

All-Star Batman, one of the flagship titles in DC Comics's Rebirth initiative, is something of a showcase for writer Scott Snyder, allowing him to work with the highest caliber of collaborates from John Romita Jr, to Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire, to Jock, Tula Lotay and more --- all while re-imagining Batman's deadly rogues' gallery to better fit modern molds of terror.

This week sees the conclusion of All-Star Batman's first arc, which has been a rip-roaring adventure road story featuring Batman, Two-Face, and a host of villains out to get them. ComicsAlliance chatted to Scott Snyder about his approach to reinventing villains, collaborating with some of the best artists in the world, and where he stands on the Batman v Bruce Wayne debate.

Strip Panel Naked: The Lime Green And Purple Of ‘Hawkeye’

hawkeyecover

You've got to hand it to Jordie Bellaire; she really understands color in comics. There's something effortless, restrained, and yet bombastic and intelligent about her work in basically everything I see her color. Yet again, in last week's new Hawkeye #1, working alongside writer Kelly Thompson and penciller Leonardo Romero, Bellaire concocts a perfect palette for the storytelling.

Repetition and Replicants: The Use of Sampling in King and Walta’s ‘Vision’

visionreview-feat

Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta's The Vision features a lot of quotation and repetition. Dialogue and scenes are reprised a few pages or issues later; objects that make a quick appearance in issue #1 play a vital role in the climax; dialogue is lifted directly from comics published nearly 50 years ago, and from plays published more than four centuries ago.

These aren’t unusual techniques. They’re just examples of structurally sound storytelling, of how to make a book feel like an extension of the histories, real and fictional, of the world that it exists within.

Kate Bishop’s Back In L.A. Action In ‘Hawkeye’ #1 From Kelly Thompson And Leonardo Romero [Preview]

hawkeye_featured

In these troubled times, we all need heroes we can believe in, and Hawkeye #1, written by Kelly Thompson and drawn by Leonardo Romero with colors by Jordie Bellaire, brings us one such hero in Kate Bishop, the second and greatest Hawkeye.

The book finds Kate back in L.A., where she first moved in Hawkeye Annual #1 by Matt Fraction and Javier Pulido, and once again working as a detective. She shared that book with her mentor, original Hawkeye Clint Barton, but she's going to have this Hawkeye title all to herself, while Clint is busy over in Occupy Avengers. As a longtime fan of both Kate Bishop and Kelly Thompson, I'm really looking forward to this book. And the panel in the preview where Kate leaps into action, in costume, while a handful of onlookers smile admiringly, is exactly the sort of thing I want to see in it.
