Critics Blown Away by Horizon #3!

blown-away

We all felt like Horizon #3 was our strongest issue thus far (until #4 comes out, anyway) but so glad that several others agree. Issue in stores now, and thanks to all of you for the great feedback and incredible support!

“Action, depth, drama and romance – Horizon has it all.”

“Horizon stands out above the rest because of its unique narrative choices and the way it uses typical comic book devices and retools them.”

“Enter Lincoln, a new villain who has got to be one of the coolest blerds in comics. He’s methodical, moves like Jim Kelly, and throws out Wu-Tang references because Wu-Tang is for the children.”

“…it keeps getting better, finding itself and revealing its purpose and the motivations of its characters. This exciting new title is just getting started and deserves to be on your pull list.”

“In his red Nike high tops, and blazer, we now have the introduction of an antagonist that you’re going to love to hate.”

“Reading this issue made me want to go back and read the previous two and has me fully hooked for the next chapter in the story.”

2016 San Diego Comic-Con Schedule {UPDATED}

It’s that time of year again, and on the heels of the launch of Horizon last week, incredibly hype for what I already know is going to be an interesting and exciting show.

Here’s where you can find me during the weekend, and please do not hesitate to drop by, say hello, and get some books signed. Thanks again for all of the support and great reviews/feedback on Horizon #1. Means the world to the entire creative team, and just this morning, Juan sent in the opening sequence of Horizon #6, which can only be described in two words—BOSS LEVEL. So many cool developments in store for you all, and it was an amazing feeling to come firing out the gate on Wednesday.

Don’t forgot your Horizon #1 Comic-Con Exclusive Cover either, which Juan and Frank Martin obliterated. It’s only five bucks, and is so worth it. Available at the Image/Skybound booth (#2729) while supplies last, which is also the location for the signings. Thanks again!
