The Darkness we Brought Back- Aftershock Free Comic Book Day Preview
This weekend sees a prominent launch from AfterShock for Free Comic Book Day, with the launch of their Seismic Stories imprint.
At the end of last year, Bleeding Cool had run a number of stories concerning the comic book publisher AfterShock Comics and what hadseemed an inability to pay their freelance comic book creators what was due to them. Bleeding Cool then revealed that AfterShock Comics of Sherman Oaks, California, and their partner studio Rive Gauche Television had filed for bankruptcy, owing comic creators five-figure sums. Since then things have been a little quiet on the AfterShock Comics front with far smaller solicitation lists than usual.
This weekend sees a prominent launch from AfterShock for Free Comic Book Day, however, with the launch of their Seismic Stories imprint, with an exclusive prelude to the upcoming The Darkness We Brought Back YA graphic novel from Alex Segura, Rex Ogle and Joe Eisma, and a new Animority store from Marguerite Bennett. Here's a preview of what's coming and, we hope, better things to come for all? Though maybe the creators involved don't feel that way… It's a Gold title for Free Comic Book Day, though, so should be in all participating comic book stores.
