Skybound X Returns July 20 with All-New Stories from the Superstar Creators Behind Invincible, Birthright, & Oblivion Song

LOS ANGELES 04/19/2022 — Image Comics and Skybound today announced the return of the hit anthology series Skybound X, following its wildly successful five-issue limited run last summer. In celebration of Image Comics’ 30th anniversary, Skybound X returns with issue #25, embracing the “Images of Tomorrow” legacy by showcasing four all-new series.

The extra-length issue is jam-packed with upcoming comic launches, featuring the monumental return of a widely beloved character and the introduction of unforgettable new ones from some of the most-acclaimed comics talent today.

From the pages of Invincible comes breakout star Battle Beast, reuniting the legendary Invincible team of Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley. The acclaimed team behind Birthright, Josh Williamson and Andrei Bressan, also reunite to kick off the new horror epic Dark Ride. Then, discover the first appearance of the savage and beautiful Kroma, from writer/artist Lorenzo De Felici (Oblivion Song). And finally, Mac Smith masterfully tells the story of how animals battle for survival when all of humanity dies in the post-apocalyptic world of Scurry.

Battle Beast is one of those characters I’m always trying to find a way to write again. Ryan Ottley is an artist I’m always trying to find a way to work with again,” said Kirkman. “Invincible fans should start getting REAL excited for what we’re cooking up together! This 25th issue of Skybound X is going to be the best one yet!”
