Image Comics Announces "Switch" Collection
Volume one will collect issues #1-7 of the series
“For those who have enjoyed Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Spider-Man or G. Willow Wilson's Ms. Marvel, I'd strongly recommend.” —Newsarama
From the #1 Amazon.com bestselling creator of SUNSTONE, Stjepan Sejic returns with SWITCH, the paranormal teen series that garnered millions of views on Deviant Art before hitting print. SWITCH, VOL. 1 will collect issues #1-7.
In SWITCH, VOL. 1, a teen girl with enough normal problems just trying to fit in (stand out?) in high school stumbles upon an medieval and transformative power. This haunted artifact possesses mysterious, immense powers. High school just got a lot more complicated…
A witty reimagining of the classic WITCHBLADE, but skewed for a teen audience, SWITCH is the heartfelt, deadpan-humored story of a girl who must navigate the usual high school dramas with the added burden of possessing an ancient power. Readers won’t need to be a WITCHBLADE fan to appreciate it, but those who are will enjoy some clever nods to the series and cameos of other characters from the universe.
SWITCH, VOL. 1 trade paperback (Diamond Code: AUG160704, ISBN: 978-1-63215-712-6) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, December 21st and bookstores on Tuesday, December 27th. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, November 7th. It is also available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Indiebound.
Select praise for SWITCH:
“Gorgeous art, an interesting plot, and woman-empowering message.” —PopOptiq
“If you're even remotely a fan of Witchblade you should check Switch out. Now the big question is, ‘what if you're not a fan of Witchblade?’ That's easy, you should definitely check it out.” —Comic Bastards
“An ambitious, energetic approach to the worlds of the Darkness and Witchblade.” —Comic Book Resources
