Everybody Loves Donny Cates – And Wants To Bring His Comics Back Into Print

Now that Donny Cates is hotter than the hottest of hot cakes all sorts of publishers are checking out his previously published work, some of which was cancelled and didn't exactly set the world on fire. But that was then. And now, after God Country, Redneck and Babyteeth, are playing musical chairs around the industry.

So the series Buzzkill, by Donny Cates, Mark Reznicek, Geoff Shaw and Lauren Affe originally published by Dark Horse Comics, is being collected and republished by Image Comics in September.

BUZZKILL follows Ruben, an unconventional superhero who gets his powers through the consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs. On one fateful day, facing a world-ending threat, Reuben drank so much that he blacked out. He saved the world…but he has no idea how or why. Now, he's in recovery, trying to get sober and piece together not only the events of the night in question, but the broken parts of his life as an alcoholic and an addict.

While next year Dark Horse are publishing a collection of Paybacks by Donny Cates, Eliot Rahal and Geoff Shaw – which was originally published by Dark Horse, then moving to Heavy Metal and now back to Dark Horse again.

From the team that delivered the smash-hit God Country and critically acclaimed Buzzkill, comes a repo squad composed of bankrupt former heroes here to foreclose on everybody's secret lairs!

This superhero parody explores the idea that heroism doesn't come cheap, so when superheroes borrow money to finance their genetic enhancements or crime-fighting supercomputers, their debts make student loans look like I.O.U.'s!

While Interceptor by Donny Cates and Dylan Burnett will be republished by Heavy Metal and published on October 11th…

INTERCEPTOR tells the tale of Poli and Weep, two freedom fighters on a planet populated exclusively by blood-sucking vampires. A planet called . . . Earth. From Donny Cates (Buzzkill, Ghost Fleet, and The Paybacks) and Dylan Burnett comes a neon-drenched, blood-soaked vision of vampires like you've never seen before! (I.E. sweet mech suits and laser swords and stuff!) Variant cover by Daniel Warren Johnson (Ghost Fleet) #SpaceSucks!

…. a week ahead of the first issue of the sequel, Reactor by Donny Cates, Dylan Burnett, and Dee Cunniffe, being published by Vault.

There's Weep, your average machine-gun-wielding teenager raised on an Earth overrun with vampires. There's Poli, who landed on Earth with the mission to kill every damn vampire there. And then there's King Luc's heavily fortified blood farm. You do the math. From Donny Cates (God Country, Redneck) and Dylan Burnett (Weavers) comes Reactor, a whole new entry into the world of vampire warfare, overpowered mechsuits, and 10-year-old presidents that Interceptor kicked-off.

For the world's most valuable, dangerous, or secretive cargo, you don't call just any trucking service . . . you call the Ghost Fleet.

Everyone wants a bit of Donny…
