Vanguard Image Comics Series Presented in Hardcover Anniversary Edition

Berkeley, CA – 25 October 2011 – Image Comics first introduced the world to Jonathan Hickman’s work with his Eisner-nominated THE NIGHLY NEWS back in 2006. He blew the critics away with his fresh take on the medium, incorporating innovative design elements, but never lacking in good old fashioned storytelling. Now Image Comics is proud to re-present his debut series in an oversized deluxe hardcover edition, containing the complete six-issue story, as well as the never before seen original script, an in-depth look at his process, a complete making of and much more!

“They say you can never go home again,” said Hickman. “But what a wonderful visit it was putting this collection together. I had honestly forgotten both how much work and love went into the books production. I think everyone that picks it up is in for a real treat.”

Since THE NIGHTLY NEWS, Jonathan Hickman has never slowed down. He’s reached immense popularity, not only with his continued creator-owned work like PAX ROMANA, RED MASS FOR MARS, TRANSHUMAN, and his most recent miniseries with Nick Pitarra, THE RED WING, but also with Marvel’s massively popular and highly regarded FF and S.H.I.E.L.D series. He has two new series planned for 2012: SECRET, with A RED MASS FOR MARS artist Ryan Bodenheim and THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS, with THE RED WING artist Nick Pitarra.

THE NIGHTLY NEWS ANNIVERSARY EDITION HC (SEP110423, ISBN: 9978-1-60706-4619), a 272-page full-color hardcover graphic novel for $34.99, will be on sale in stores December 7.
