SDCC 2017 and IDW Black Crown Spoilers follow.
Joining the already announced Kid Lobotomy, written by Peter Milligan with art by Tess Fowler, set for October 2017 release comes word of the expansion of IDW’s Black Crown imprint headed by former Vertigo exec Shelley Bond.
Here’s the news from San Diego Comic Con 2017 (SDCC 2017):
Assassinsitas debuts in December and will be written by The Skeptics author Tini Howard, with art by Gilbert Hernandez of Love and Rockets fame. The series will run for six issues and follow Octavia, a former hitwoman who comes out of retirement for one last job to pay her son’s college tuition. She’ll also be on the lookout for one of her former hitman colleague’s kidnapped children. But no one eats for free in the high stakes world of international assassinations, so Octavia’s son, Dominic, and his boyfriend, Taylor, are along for the ride.
Punks Not Dead brings together Calling Major Tom novelist David Barnett with Death Sentence artist Martin Simmonds for a January release. Punks Not Dead follows loner Fergie on an unexpected quest to find the father he never knew. Of course, Fergie’s journey won’t be without its travails. An odd branch of the United Kingdom’s spy organization, MI5, has started tracking Fergie, leaving the teenager to confide in his only companion, the ghost of Sex Pistols vocalist Sid Vicious.
The Black Crown Quarterly will release just after Kid Lobotomy and will consist of 48 pages covering comics and culture. The quarterly will also include a wraparound cover and a 10-page story penned by The Motherless Oven creator Rob Davis.
