#SDCC16: New Comic Series Glitterbomb Pulls No Punches



Looking for a new comic series? Coinciding with this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, we have an announcement to share:  In September fan-favorite Jim Zub (WAYWARD, Thunderbolts) and debut artist Djibril Morisette-Phan will launch Glitterbomb, an all-new series from Image Comics that tears into the heart of Hollywood. Read on for the early details!

Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. But the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture she’s drowning in isn’t the only problem—her frustrations are a powerful lure for something horrifying out beyond the water… something ready to strike.

“Hollywood is a place of extremes—wealth and influence propped up by fragile egos and desperation,” said Zub. “It’s fertile ground for telling a story of intense drama and blood-soaked vengeance.”

“Glitterbomb is one of my first steps in the world of comics, and I feel very fortunate,” said Morisette-Phan. “It has been a great vehicle for me to start some much-needed reflection about fame culture and the relationship I want to have with it. I’d love Glitterbomb to kick-start a conversation we could all be part of.”

First announced at Image Expo, Glitterbomb is already raking in accolades: “Sharply written and drawn, with deft insight into the trappings of celebrity culture, Glitterbomb just might be the ultimate Hollywood horror story,” said Karen Berger, founder of DC’s Vertigo imprint.

Glitterbomb Issue #1 Cover A is by Djibril Morisette-Phan (Diamond code: JUL160682), and Cover B is by Steve Cummings and Djibril Morisette-Phan (Diamond code: JUL160683).  They will both hit comic book stores on Wednesday, September 7th and are now available for pre-order from TFAW.
