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.

My Tumblr

Over the last year or so I've posted on my blog less and less. One of the main reasons for this is because of Tumblr. Personally I love it. Mostly its quick images and funny things I like. Not as much hardcore info. So if you want a more up to date blog to follow that's where you should head.

http://thejoshuawilliamson.tumblr.com/

I recommend you get your own tumblr and follow along. It's like twitter for pictures and gifs. 

Lately I've actually been debating killing this blog in place of an actual tumblr based website. It's more than likely going to happen. Just a matter of finding the time to do it.

THE IRON THRONE. SDCC. ME.

Another San Diego Comic-Con has passed. I'm exhausted, but super glad I went and meet a ton of amazing people who love comics. And it was great meeting new GHOSTED fans who loved the book.
This year there was a private Walking Dead party and Weezer played. It was insane.
I've learned that in my new life I really have nothing to complain about anymore.
