Following a long delay, Image Comics has announced the Image Comics HC will finally ship this November.

"It's done. Really!" said Image Comics publisher Erik Larsen. "The book was supposed to come out in early 2002, and believe me, we've been deluged with e-mails, phone calls and letters asking where it is ever since. When I came on board as publisher, one of my highest priorities was to get this thing finished and on shelves. It's taken a little longer than I'd have liked, but the wait is over at last. The book has been completed. We have every page on hand at this point."

Originally solicited for a March 2002 release, the book features four all-new stories by the four remaining Image founders: The never-before-told origin of Larsen's Savage Dragon; Todd McFarlane's first comics story since Spawn #50, published nearly 10 years ago; a chilling conclusion to the first act in Marc Silvestri's Cyberforce saga that clears the decks for a 2006 series re-launch; and an important chapter in the life of the all-new, all-different ShadowHawk that serves as an entry point to Jim Valentino's current ongoing series. 

"Image Comics was intended to be a celebration of our first decade as a comic book company," Larsen said. "And it's a darned shame that it didn't come out when it was supposed to. We blew it. Parts were finished on time, to be sure, but not the entire package. It kept getting delayed and delayed and I'm sure a lot of people thought it just plain wasn't going to come out--ever. 

"But now we have the completed pages in our hands. And it's awesome to behold. Naturally, we wanted to get it into readers' hands as soon as possible but given that it's been three years and change since the book was originally offered, we've decided to do the responsible thing and re-solicit it. We're excited about this book -- because it really is darned cool -- and we want to share that excitement with everyone else but we don't want to make a bad situation worse by shipping the book as soon as we could have and sticking retailers with orders they placed over three years ago."

The book will cost $24.99, with a signed and numbered slipscase edition for $75.

Alias Comics has announced an ongoing Lullaby series to start in September.

The first issue and will be written by Mike S. Miller Miller and Ben Avery with art by Hector Sevilla and painted colors by Ulises Arreola.

"We took a big risk with Lullaby, and I'm glad we did," said Miller, who is also executive director of Alias Comics. "When we started, people were telling us that there was no way an all-ages book could succeed in the comic book market. But fans have really enjoyed the story, and Hector Sevilla is becoming very well known for his unique style of art and visual storytelling."

Lullaby #1 will ship with four covers, by Sevilla, Jack Lawrence, Randy Green and Millers (retailer incentive).

˛The advance edition of the trade paperback collecting the original story was one of our top sellers at the Wizard World Chicago this past weekend,˛ said Sean J. Jordan, mnaging editor for Alias Comics. "Retailers and fans alike love this book, and we nearly sold out of our entire stock before the show ended. Based on the number of people who we spoke to over the weekend, we anticipate that the next series is going to be huge."
