SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Just last week, as part of ROBOT 6’s fourth-anniversary celebration, Dave Elliott announced plans to revive Atomeka Press and its well-regarded A1 anthology, teasing, “We’re making our announcements in the next two weeks as to who we’re publishing with and what other books we have coming this year …” Now the details are beginning to take shape.
Elliott is partnering with Titan Publishing’s newly launched Titan Comics imprint for a line of comics that debuts in June with the new A1 in June, featuring the work of Elliott, Barnaby Bagenda, Garrie Gastonny, W. H. Rauf, Rhoald Marcellius, Sakti Yuwono and Stellar Labs. That will be followed in July by Tomorrowland, by Paul Jenkins and Stellar Labs, in September by Weirding Willows, by Elliott, Barnaby Bagenda, Sami Basri, Sakti Yuwono and Jessica Kholinne, Monster Massacre Vol. 1, and Sharky, by Elliott and Alex Horley, and in October by the A1 Annual and Monster Massacre Vol. 2.
“Having worked in the entertainment industry for over 25 years I wanted a partner that complemented what I do,” Elliott said in a statement. “I wanted a partner who has the same aspirations for seeing this industry do what it has the potential to do. And most importantly I wanted a partner who realizes that if I do well, so do they. I know with Titan’s30-year experience in the industry, I’m getting just that.”
