When it comes to creative teams in comics, one of the best is the multiple Eisner Award-winning duo of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Now Brubaker and Phillips are back with two graphic novel hardcovers from Image Comics. Pulp will be available in July, while Cruel Summer will come out in August.

Brubaker and Phillips are behind such hits as My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies and Bad Weekend.

The original graphic novel Pulp, however, is unlike anything they have ever done. A tale of ’30s-era crime, Pulp is a celebration of pulp fiction, set in a world on the brink.

‘Big Girls’: When Pacific Rim meets Paper Girls

In “Pacific Rim”, humanity built massive robots called Jaegers. This allowed them to go toe to toe with giant monsters called Kaiju. Jason Howard’s new action comic book series Big Girls is kind of like that. Except here, it’s men who have turned into giant monsters. And now it’s up to Big Girls like the 300-foot-tall Ember to stop them.

Critically acclaimed artist Howard was Warren Ellis’ collaborator on the science fiction comic book series Trees. This time, he will be the writer and artist of this new series that Image Comics is launching in August.

Big Girls is inspired by my childhood love of giant monster movies like King Kong and Godzilla, and big robot anime like Robotech and Evangelion,” Howard said in an exclusive scoop on the Big Girls announcement with The Hollywood Reporter.
