PORTLAND, Ore. 06/05/2024 — The hype train for the Ghost Machine powerhouse line of comics keeps chugging with yet another pair of instant sell-outs and reprint orders for the wildly popular Rook: Exodus #1 by Geoff Johns (Geiger, Superman, Batman: Three Jokers) and Jason Fabok (Batman: Three Jokers) and Redcoat #1 by Johns and Bryan Hitch. The debut issues for each of these much-talked-about new series will be fast-tracked by Image Comics for reprint this week in order to keep up with increasing demand.

In Rook: Exodus, hundreds of years from now, the man known as Rook was once a simple farmer who fled the crumbling Earth for a new life on the planet Exodus; a terraformed planet where all of nature, including its imported animal population, was completely controlled by humans called Wardens. But when Exodus’s world engine failed, the Wardens’ power fell into the wrong hands, creating chaos and mass evacuation…for those who could afford it. The rest, like Rook, must scavenge for an escape vessel as the war for control of what’s left of Exodus begins.

In Redcoat, British redcoat and all-around rogue, Simon mysteriously became immortal in 1776 after a run-in with the clandestine cabal known as the Founding Fathers, which included George Washington, John Hancock, and many other prominent American Revolutionary War leaders. Since that fateful day, Simon has led a life of adventure and avarice, rubbing elbows (and sometimes fists) with many of history’s most renowned figures, including his nemesis Benedict Arnold, Albert Einstein, Annie Oakley, and many more. One thing they all agree on: they never want to see him again! But what are the true origins and extent of Simon’s power and the mysterious organization behind them? And how has it secretly shaped America and the world? Simon’s on a quest to find out!

Rook: Exodus #1, third printing (Lunar Code 0524IM812) and Redcoat #1, third printing (Lunar Code 0524IM811) will both be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, July 3.

All the Ghost Machine titles are also available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
