Official Press Release
|“I Kill Giants” TPB on sale May 13|
Berkeley, CA – This May, Image Comics releases Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura’s complete I KILL GIANTS trade paperback while declaring everyone on the planet Earth should buy it since it’s so damn good.
“I’m really flattered Image would make that kind of claim, so much so Ken and I are humbled beyond words and hope people like it as much as Image thinks they will,” Kelly said. “Ken certainly did a phenomenal job with the art and I like to think it’s pretty good as a whole. Then again, there’s a lot of people on Earth. Maybe only half the population should buy the collection and recommend it to friends if they think it’ll appeal to them. That’s still a lot of people. At least three billion.”
I KILL GIANTS tells the heart-wrenching story of Barbara Thorson, a girl whose own family can’t tell if she’s insane or actually the giant slayer she claims to be. During its seven issue run, fans were won over by Joe Kelly’s impeccable storytelling and JM Ken Niimura’s charming visuals, creating what the publisher believes will be one of the shining stars in its strong line of perennial collections for several centuries to come.
Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson said, “While Image prides itself on its entire line of comic books, graphic novels and trade paperbacks, we feel I KILL GIANTS is a title all six billion people on Earth will enjoy, whether they’re already comics fans or not. I’m personally buying six copies to hand out to various friends and family members – and I get them for free!”
I KILL GIANTS (MAR092427), a 184-page black and white tradepaperback for $15.99, will be in stores May 13th, 2009.
