PORTLAND, OR 3.26.2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that The Ride will celebrate its 15th anniversary with an all-new, five-part story from the award-winning team of Plastic—Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard. This action-packed miniseries will launch from Image Comics in June and will feature special backup content from Adam Hughes.
“Fifteen years? Really? Well then, I guess I’d better turn up the heat on this one,” said Wagner. “Let’s see.

The Ride 15th anniversary is going to be a wild, disturbing, and excessively violent tale of redemption. Welcome to what I like to call FETISH NOIR!”

The Ride #1 Cover A by Hughes (Diamond Code APR190014) and The Ride #1 Cover B by Hillyard (Diamond Code APR190015) will be available on Wednesday, June 12. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 20.
The Ride #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
