IMAGE EXPO ANNOUNCEMENT: Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey reunite for INJECTION
July 23, 2014
An ongoing science-fiction series about the dark future we’ve built for ourselves
Once upon a time, there were five crazy people, and they poisoned the 21st Century.
Bestselling writer Warren Ellis (TREES, SUPREME: BLUE ROSE, Moon Knight), artist Declan Shalvey (Moon Knight), and colorist Jordie Bellaire (MANHATTAN PROJECTS, NOWHERE MEN, PRETTY DEADLY) reunite for an all-new ongoing series about the disturbing, unruly future that looms near for society.
INJECTION explores how loud and strange the world is becoming, and the sense that it's all bubbling into chaos—a chaos poised to become the Next New Normal—and that we did this to ourselves without thinking for a second about how we were ever going to live inside it.
"Within a couple of months of starting work together on Moon Knight, I knew that I wanted to create something new with Declan and Jordie,” said Ellis. “And this is what we came up with: something that hits all the same strengths of our previous work together, but opens up a wide space for all kinds of new possibilities."
"I'm delighted to be continuing the creative relationship I've established with Warren and Jordie with Injection at Image Comics,” added Shalvey. “A creator-owned project is something I've wanted to do for some time, and I feel that this is the right project, with the right collaborators and at the right publisher."
“It’s not much of a secret that I view Warren Ellis as one of the most important comic book writers of the last 20 years, but my admiration for the incredible artistry of Declan Shalvey is probably less well-known,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “The two of them together are an absolutely amazing team, and I think it goes without saying everything they do is only elevated by Jordie Bellair’s colors. Add in the fine lettering and design of the always awesome Fonografiks, and I think the only definition truly worthy of their talents is ‘dream team.’”
The chaos is coming to Image Comics in 2015.
