Secret Wars RED SKULL

Coming in July as part of Marvel's giant Secret Wars event...

A Dangerous Odyssey Across Battleworld in RED SKULL #1!
New York, NY—March 27th, 2015— Hushed whispers cut across Battleworld. One of the most vile villains in history still draws breath. But how can this be? He should be dead! And yet his legend grows even larger in the pages of RED SKULL #1 – a brand new Secret Wars limited series beginning this July! Writer Josh Williamson (Birthright, Nailbiter) and artist Luca Pizzari (Amazing Spider-Man Special) bring you a twisted tale from the bowels of Battleworld!
The Red Skull should be dead. Banished beyond the Shield long ago, if the zombies haven’t gotten to him, the Ultron robots or Annihilation bugs should have! Any yet word has reached the other side that he still lives, quietly amassing his forces, prepared to strike!
Now, a team of unlikely villains – Magneto, Winter Soldier, Lady Deathstrike, Electro, Moonstone and Jack O’Lantern will venture beyond safety to find the truth for themselves. Only problem – beyond the Shield, nobody ever comes back alive!
“I’ll be honest, this book is super dark,” promises writer Josh Williamson in an interview with Marvel.com. “It matches what you’d expect a book based around someone as horrible as the Red Skull. Prepare for a very twisted tale. If you’re a fan of my books you know I enjoy writing some pretty dark characters in some very messed up situations. Marvel has let me do that here as well.”

Witness the true horrors of Battleworld this July as Williamson & Pizzari unleash RED SKULL #1 on the masses!

Nailbiter a killer success!

“If Josh died I wish he’d leave Nailbiter to me in his will so I could say it was my idea.”
—Scott Snyder (WYTCHES, BatmanAmerican Vampire)



Joshua Williamson (GHOSTED) and Mike Henderson's (MASKS AND MOBSTERS) new series, NAILBITER, is already causing insomnia and nightmares industry-wide. The newly-released horror suspense series was announced at Image Expo in January and generated early comparisons to Twin Peaks and The Silence of the Lambs. It has sold out at the distributor level and is slated for a second printing.

Praise for NAILBITER:
“Prepare your cuticles for this masterful bit of horror.” —David Pepose, Newsarama
“In the end, Nailbiter stands on a premise so instantly enticing that you can almost see the movie trailer.” —Robert Tutton, PASTE Magazine

Nailbiter will get under your skin. That's where it's most comfortable. It'll fill you with a vague sense of dread as it drags you into the fascinating world of serial killers. It'll hold you tightly in its grip and compel you to think about the more unsettling parts of human existence. It's chilling, unique, and a total revelation for horror comics.” —Zac Thompson, Bloody Disgusting

NAILBITER #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores.

It is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

Image Comics is pleased to announce that this first issue will be going back to print to meet customer demand. The second printing of NAILBITER #1 (Diamond Code MAR148370) will release on 6/4.
NAILBITER #2 releases 6/4 as well and will be available for pre-order with Diamond Code APR140582.
