PORTLAND, Ore. 10/25/2021 — Bestselling creators James Tynion IV (Department of Truth, Something Is Killing The Children) and Steve Foxe’s (Party & Prey, TKO's Tales of Terror) terror sensation Razorblades will be collected into a deluxe hardcover. This thrilling edition will include the first year of terrifying tales and be published by Image Comics in April 2022.
Razorblades: The Horror Magazine features nearly 400 pages of chills and thrills from some of the most cutting-edge names in the genre. From monsters in the closet to bodies stuffed into washing machines, Razorblades redefines horror comics for the next era. This hardcover will also feature prose, illustrations, and in-depth interviews with horror icons like Scott Snyder.
“I’m incredibly proud of this project, and the deep bench of horror talent we were able to bring on board," said Tynion IV. "Not just with the usual crowd of writers and illustrators from one corner of the comic industry, but incredible horror talents from the full breadth of the medium, all around the world. I couldn’t be happier having a great big beautiful tome on the shelf featuring our entire first self-published run.”
Foxe added: "Putting together Razorblades as a self-published anthology was such a gratifying, and sometimes even mystifying, process for us, and it's been so rewarding to cultivate a dedicated readership over the course of five oversized issues. The talent for terror on display in these pages deserves the largest audience possible, though, and James and I are thrilled that Razorblades is going to have a new life in hardcover from Image Comics, which will help anyone seeking new nightmares to get their hands on all of the cutting-edge frights contained within."
Razorblades hardcover edition (ISBN: 978-1-5343-2124-3) will collect Razorbladesissues #1-5 and be available on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 and in bookstores on Tuesday, May 3, 2022.

Razorblades will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
