Image Comics Announces First Trade Collection for "Eclipse"
The first four issues collected into trade paperback this February
Fan-favorite creative team Zack Kaplan and Giovanni Timpano will release the first trade paperback collection of their ongoing gritty sci-fi/horror series ECLIPSE this February from Image Comics and Top Cow Productions.
In the near future, a mysterious solar event has transformed the sun’s light into deadly immolating rays. The world’s few survivors now live in nocturnal cities, unable to survive the daylight hours outdoors. But a killer has emerged who uses sunlight to burn his victims—and when he targets the daughter of a solar power mogul, it falls to a disillusioned solar engineer to protect her.
ECLIPSE VOLUME 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0038-5) hits comic book stores Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 and bookstores Tuesday, February 21st, 2017 and will be available for $9.99. It can be ordered by retailers with Diamond code DEC160754.
Select praise for ECLIPSE:
“ECLIPSE has all the feel of a Raymond Chandler novel. David Baxter is a compelling lead character, hollowed out by the disaster that broke the world and reluctant to be an active participant, not just in the murder investigation but society as a whole.” —IGN
“A great book with a really original spin on traditional sci-fi.” —All-Comic (5/5 overall score)
“Kaplan’s story telling style is succinct and the art by Timpano has never been better.” —Word of the Nerd (10/10 overall score)
“This is a story that sees the world re-imagined but still manages to explore the human condition.” —GeekFeed (5/5 overall score)
“Extremely appealing to the eye.” —Bounding into Comics (10/10 overall score)
"Part mystery, part monster tale, and all science fiction, ECLIPSE keeps getting better as Kaplan unfolds this dystopian detective story. Timpano and Kaplan are one impressive voice." —Spartantown
