Fan-favorite Spawn and Punisher artist Szymon Kudrański introduces a world where the only limitation is your imagination in the forthcoming comic Something Epic. This new ongoing series is set to launch in May from Image Comics.
Outside our perception, creative thought takes physical form, with only a handful of individuals known as Epics able to interact with this wondrous hidden world. But for fourteen-year-old Danny Dillon, accepting these responsibilities himself won’t be easy—or safe. Lose yourself in a world of endless fantasy and creativity, where superheroes, monsters, magical creatures, and cartoon characters live and breathe alongside us.
“Over the years I’ve had the privilege to drawn many different characters—from the dark Spawn to the righteous Superman, through to self-justified antiheroes like Punisher, and horror legends in A Town Called Terror. At some point, I wanted to create an epic plot where all the characters from these different genres and art forms shared a common story. The only logical ground to unite all these worlds and art forms was their source… imagination,” said Kudrański. “What would imagination be without us and our creativity? Would Spider-Man exist without Stan Lee and Steve Ditko? Kamandi without Jack Kirby? Spawn without Todd McFarlane? Sin Citywithout Frank Miller? The main characters of my story are individuals called Epics—not just creative people, but those who have the unique gift to interact with the worlds of imagination. Something Epic is a cross-genre adventure series about a young Epic who struggles to accept his gift. If anyone has followed my art in Marvel, DC, or Image… I’m sure they will find something for themselves in this Epic universe.”
Something Epic #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 10. Something Epic #1 will also be available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
