THEY'RE NOT LIKE US launches to critical acclaim

January 16, 2015

The first issue of the new suspense series is being fast-tracked to a second printing

The newly launched THEY’RE NOT LIKE US series by Eisner-nominated writer and Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson (NOWHERE MEN) and artist Simon Gane (The Vinyl Underground, Paris) has been praised by critics and fans alike for its rapid pace and jaw-dropping cliffhanger. The first issue is slated for a second printing in order to meet growing customer demand.

Comic Book Resources says of the series, “They're Not Like Us #1 is definitely not like any other teenage mutant comic, and that's what makes Stephenson and Gane's issue so strong.” Multiversity Comics praises it as “a beautifully constructed introduction to a complex examination of youth in revolt.”

We all have advantages over one another, but what if the next generation of youth were capable of things most of us could only imagine? What would they do—and who would they be? A doctor? An athlete? A soldier? A hero? Since the beginning of time we’ve all had to make choices about how to use our own unique abilities, but not like this generation... THEY’RE NOT LIKE US.

“Working with Simon on this, along with my Nowhere Men co-conspirators Jordie Bellaire and Fonografiks, has been amazing, but even so, I was completely unprepared for the incredibly warm response They’re Not Like Us has received,” said Stephenson. “We’re all looking forward to doing this for a good long while, so we’re really grateful to have such strong support right from the start.”

THEY’RE NOT LIKE US #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (, the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
