Titan Books has long put out comics, but it has mostly restricted itself to licensed adaptations or collections of legacy material, save for books like Tank Girl. Today, the publisher unveiled the development of Titan Comics, a new imprint that will focus on brand-new creator-owned properties, both in periodical and graphic novel format.
The imprint is set to launch in July 2013 with two creator-owned books and four new collctions, with a new series launching every month following. Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol by Stuart Jennett and Numbercruncher by Si Spurrier and P.J. Holden will launch the line, alonside collections of Ring of Roses by Das Petrou and John Watkiss, Thrud the Barbarian by Carl Critchlow, and two volumes of The First Kingdom by Jack Katz.
Later in 2013, Titan Comics will debut Gravestwon by Roger Gibson and Vince Danks, Surface Tension by Jay Gunn, and Death Sentence by Monty Nero and Mike Dowling.
"This is the start of something very special," says Nick Landau, Publisher of Titan Comics. “We’re searching out fantastic new voices and astonishing new artists, and helping them bring their dream projects to fruition – as well as remaining a world-leader in the field of classic comics restoration and republication.”
Steve White, Senior Comics Editor, says readers can expect, “the same level of quality we've delivered across Titan's huge portfolio of licensed publications – coupled to the blazing imaginations of the next generation of independent creators.”
In addition, all new releases will be available digitally day-and-date on iOS devices, Android, Kindle Fire, and web.
