If Image Comics can do anything wrong, it sure doesn't like to show it. Everything the publisher sends to stores for readers seems to be a surefire hit, with all sorts of talent gravitating towards the definition of creative control. It's something that's appealed to both Nathan Edmondson and Alison Sampson as well, with the two pairing up for Genesis to hit stores this April.
"Genesis was a fun opportunity to let storytelling and art run wild with the idea of creativity itself—of the boundlessness of imagination and the inevitable vertigo that comes from the unlimited ability to manifest anything into being," said Nathan Edmondson.
Genesis is a trippy journey of creation and destruction as one man finds himself with the ability to manifest anything by thinking it—only to learn that with seemingly unlimited power comes unstoppable terror. The one-shot hits stores April 16 for $6.99 and can be preordered using Diamond Code FEB140504.
“I'm really grateful for Nathan asking me to do this. The script let me draw on my architectural background (twenty five years of it) to bring something special of my own to the project and I hope that comes across—Nathan is a designer's writer,” said Sampson. “I'm relatively new to comics and there was a steep learning curve, but Nathan works with some amazing artists, so there was a standard to meet and this made me work harder.”
