Artists Elite Comics Launch In June With Primer Red & Primer Blue
Last November, Bleeding Cool reported that Artists Elite Comics was a new comic book publisher being created by Tyler Kirkham, Alé Garza, and Shawn Hudachko alongside a number of other famous comic book artists, with the aim to allow creator-owned artists to publish their own comic book stories. Wave One is to be published in June 2022 and using Lunar Distribution to get to comic book stores rather than going direct. Those stores who cannot use Lunar, sich as those in other countries, can order direct.
And they will be launching in June, one week after the other, with the following Primer volumes, Primer Red and Primer Blue, each with four pages from each featured project, and will be the first print appearances of all these characters.
