LEVIATHAN #1

LEVIATHAN
A GIANT, SUMMER LAUNCH FOR IMAGE COMICS

A page of Nick Pitarra’s art cuts a swath of mesmerizing detail and vivid characters across the mind,
leaving one breathless in anticipation for the next page where it happens all over again.

Join multiple Eisner-winning writer John Layman (CHEW) and Eisner-nominated artist Nick Pitarra (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS), along with soon-to-be-nominated-for-best-colorist Michael Garland (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS) for an eye-popping, face-melting, reality-defying, nonstop rush of pure adrenaline this August at Image Comics in the forthcoming LEVIATHAN.

Poor Ryan DeLuca didn’t buy enough beer for his party, and while he was out on a beer run his idiot buddies busted out some mystical arcana and performed a summoning ceremony—a ceremony that summoned a giant monster from hell!

“Nick and I have wanted to work together for a long time, and when I found out he had a hole in his schedule I jumped at the chance to write what I hope will be the quintessential Nick Pitarra book, a book that will take advantage of all the energy and madness he brings to a page,” said Layman. “Hundreds of years from now, when robot historians ask who Nick Pitarra was, this is the book they will boot up.”

LEVIATHAN #1 (Diamond Code JUN180012) hits stores on Wednesday, August 1st.

The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, July 9th.
