October 11th, 2013 by Christopher Williams Comments

Titan Comics is pleased to announce a brand-new wave of creator-owned titles for 2014, including titles from established comics stars Rob Williams, D’Israeli, Peter Milligan, Arthur Suydam, Simon Bisley and more!

Exclusively announced today at the panel ‘Titan Comics: The Next Wave’, the new batch of fresh creator-owned titles includes adrenal grindhouse-flick Sally Of The Wasteland by Victor Gischler (Kiss Me Satan, The Punisher, Wolverine, Deadpool, X-Men) and artist Tazio Bettin, superhero thriller Girl 1 by award-winning actor-writer-director Noel Clarke (Doctor Who, Star Trek, Kidulthood) and Yishan Li, and quirky anti-capes tale Ordinary by Rob Williams (2000AD, Cla$$war, Wolverine) & D’Israeli (2000AD, Sandman, Scarlet Traces).

Brand-new collections to add to Titan’s blossoming deluxe library include a cutting-edge two-volume English edition of the never-before-translated French science fiction masterpiece Snowpiercer. Snowpiercer – about a postapocalyptic train that can never stop, its thousand carriages housing all that’s left of humanity – has been adapted into an astounding new film directed by Joon-ho Bong (The Host), starring Chris Evans, John Hurt Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris and Jamie Bell, distributed in the USA by The Weinstein Company, and due for release in Q1 2014.

Other astounding graphic novels to come from Titan include the definitive edition of existentialist hitman satire Johnny Nemo,by industry legend Peter Milligan (Shade The Changing Man, Hellblazer, Justice League Dark, X-Statix) & Brett Ewins (2000AD, Swamp Thing, Hellblazer); The Complete Cholly & Flytrap by Arthur Suydam, collecting the full EPIC shorts and more; Gothic Victorian horror-adventure Springheeled Jack by David Hitchcock, and gnarly skull-crusher The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse by screenwriter Michael Mendheim and rock-star of comics, Simon Bisley!

Senior Comics Editor Steve White explains, “Our first year as Titan Comics has been all about establishing our brand, and proving to retailers and readers that we have a unique voice, a distinctive catalog, and that we can deliver on our promises. Well, we’ve delivered both resurrected and refurbished classics from the backlist and jaw-dropping stunners from the vanguard of the new, so 2014 is going to be all about blowing the bloody doors off!”

Publisher Nick Landau adds, “We’re very excited to be announcing the second wave of our creator owned titles which we’ll be discussing in detail at the New York Comicon. Come see us at the panel on Sunday October 13th at 3.45pm in Room 1A01, meet the creators and be in at the very beginning…!”
