Imagine that people among us, all of whom have had a near-death experience, now have an ability called a Soul-Skill. This allows them to access the skill sets of the dead. Fighter. Surgeon. Sniper. Anything. Welcome to the world of Graveyard Wars.

ABLAZE  has announced that it will publish Graveyard Wars as a series of original graphic novels, with the first graphic novel set for publication this September. Graveyard Wars is written and created by AJ Lieberman, illustrated and colored by Andrew Sebastian Kwan, and lettered (with color design) by Darren Rawlings.

Graveyard Wars is my first new book in a few years and my only goal was to be sure from a story and art standpoint it surpassed the others. And I think we did it. It’s a fun, action story that doesn’t fully reveal itself until the very last page. My only other hope? That it would attract the attention of a director/producer like Chad Stahelski so I can hear all the batshit stuff that goes on during the [John] Wick movies,” Leiberman said in a press statement.

‘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.
