Olympia #1 and Heart Attack #1 are two new comics this week from Image Comics – check out that the rest of the new releases.
Olympia #1 by Curt Pires, Tony Pires, Alex Diotto & Dee Cunniffe
DOUBLE-SIZED FIRST ISSUE! Elon is a latchkey kid who spends his days alone reading comic books—until his favorite superhero, Olympian, comes crashing off the page and into reality! But as he nurses his wounded and delirious hero back to health, he discovers Olympian isn’t the only thing that came through… something evil followed him. A comedic yet heartfelt love letter to the comics medium, Olympia is also a meditation on hope and loss, conceived by Curt Pires (Wyrd) and his father, Tony Pires, while Tony was undergoing treatment for cancer.
Heart Attack #1 by Shawn Kittelsen & Eric Zawadzki
Superpowers and teenage romance collide in the newest Skybound original by Shawn Kittelsen (Mortal Kombat 11) and Eric Zawadzki (The Dregs, Eternal)! Gene therapy has saved Americans from disease—only to give birth to Variants: people with powers so unique, the government denies their human rights. But a rebellion has begun… Charlie North is on the run from the police when he crosses paths with Jill Kearney. Instant attraction becomes mass destruction when they unlock powers neither knew they had. Now, the question isn’t how to use them—but how far they’re willing to go.
The Marked #1, 2nd Printing by Brian Haberlin & David Hine
The Marked may look like cool young influencers, but beneath the designer clothes, their bodies are tattooed with the magical glyphs of an ancient order that secretly protects the world against evil forces. With no new occult threats, The Marked use their tattooed powers solely for the pursuit of pleasure until a young woman called Liza creates a dangerous new form of Hybrid Sorcery. The party is over for The Marked. You’ll believe in magic—terrifying, soul-destroying magic.
