Kaplan and Timpano in it for the long haul on ECLIPSE
October 3, 2016
Sneak previews revealed, plus a special announcement
Image Comics and Top Cow Productions are pleased to reveal teasers from ECLIPSE #2 and ECLIPSE #3 in celebration of the sizzling new series’ transition to ongoing.
"Happy to see ECLIPSE find a strong audience and warrant a continuing series!” said Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “The first arc is amazing and the outline I just read for the second is even stronger.”
In ECLIPSE, a mysterious solar event has transformed the sun’s light into deadly immolating rays. The world’s few survivors now live in nocturnal cities. But a killer emerges who uses sunlight to burn his victims, and when he targets the daughter of a solar power mogul, it falls to a disillusioned solar engineer to protect her.
“ECLIPSE is a world where men fight over how to survive deadly sunlight, and as long as men’s hearts are dark, there will always be great conflicts to explore,” said Kaplan. “The response to this series has been simply incredible, and I’m super thrilled to continue this story. It’s going to be killer!”
“ECLIPSE’s characters and its world are like children to me, so I’m excited to continue to spend time with them,” said Timpano. “After a wonderful response from the readers, there is an even stronger incentive to do better than what we did in the first arc. Fear the sun!”

ECLIPSE #1, 2nd printing (Diamond code: AUG168286) hits comic book stores Wednesday, October 12th.

Select praise for ECLIPSE:
“ECLIPSE has all the feel of a Raymond Chandler novel. David Baxter is a compelling lead character, hollowed out by the disaster that broke the world and reluctant to be an active participant, not just in the murder investigation but society as a whole.” —IGN
“ECLIPSE hits with a one-two punch of sci-fi and horror. It's got a dynamite premise and some tight pencils presenting a dystopian world that will have you reaching for sunscreen.” —Horror Talk
“Not to be missed.” —Big Comic Page
“From panel to panel and from page to page, ECLIPSE reads like a great comic should.” —All-Comic
