IMAGE COMICS ROUNDUP

Image Comics has unveiled Charlie Adlard's variant cover for Clone #1.

The new ongoing series by David Schulner and Juan José Ryp is from Robert Kirkman's Skybound imprint of Image.

Here's how Image describes the series:

"Clone is a high-tension thriller about a man who discovers not only that a legion of clones of himself exist, but also that they're after his family."

In other Image news:

* Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky are teaming on Sex Criminals, an ongoing series launching in 2013.

Here's how Image describes the book:

"This brand-spanking new sex comedy follows two young lovers as they go on a lust-fueled crime spree with a twist -- when they have sex, time itself seems to stop. Set in a world where the laws of time and space are as dubious and mutable as the laws of man and society, Sex Criminals promises to scandalize, titillate, and provoke when it bursts onto the comics scene next year.

"Not to toot our own horns, but there's never been a comic book like Sex Criminals before," Fraction said. "There've been comedy books with sex, or sex comics with comedic moments, but no book with 'sex comedy' as its narrative thrust. Hard to imagine, but comedy and sex, which fit together so naturally literally everywhere else in the entertainment world, don't get done in comic books. Chip and I are thrilled to be the first ones in there to plant our seed."

"This project brings together my two loves: crime and an in-depth exploration of the Western banking system and its ill-effects on society," Zdarsky said. "I've spent years working for newspapers and magazines and am looking forward to completing my 'dying industry trifecta' and give comic books my all while holding back the tears."

* Telltale Games has announced that Walking Dead: The Game, Episode Three -- Long Road Ahead is now available for download on iOS.
