NYCC ’19: ComiXology’s con schedule is officially here!

This article originally appeared on this site

ComiXology released its NYCC schedule on Wednesday, just in time for Thursday’s opening events. The digital publisher is riding off of the coattails of its recent Originals lineup with signings form creators, new releases, exclusive giveaways and panels.

But, most exciting of those is the announcement of three new series, available today for free to ComiXology Unlimited subscribers. For those attending NYCC this year, ComiXology has revealed in its schedule that you have a chance to bring home a poster based on one of these three new titles; each is available to check out below.

The first is The Dark; a sci-fi graphic novel that imagines the end of man-made technology and the rise of biological tech. It’s lineup includes Mark Sable with art by Kristian Donaldson, colors by Lee Loughridge, and letters by Thomas Mauer. The poster below is done by Donaldson herself.

Next up is Forgotten Home #1. It’s the first of an eight issue series combining magic and familial drama with sci-fi, all wrapped around the disappearance of a deputy’s child. Erica Schultz writes the series with art by Marika Cresta, colors by Matt Emmons, letters by Cardinal Rae, and covers by Natasha Alterici.

Lastly is Promethee 13:13, which brings together editor Will Dennis, writer Andy Diggle, artist Shawn Martinbrough, colorist Dave Stewart, letterist Simon Bowland and cover artist Jock. It’s a stacked lineup to say the least. But there’s another collaborator on this project. ComiXology is continuing the work of Delcourt Group, “the leading independent comic book publisher in France,” to create this comic that’s also a prequel to Christophe Bec’s Promethee.

You can peruse psoters for each of these new series below, then make sure to glance through ComiXology’s NYCC schedule to see who you need to see for signings. When it comes to panels, the publisher has lined up three interesting talks exploring role-playing games, world-building and manga – all of which you can find details on at the bottom of this page.
