Indie phenom Corey Lewis (Sharknife, G.I. Joe: Deviations) will bring his comics anthology SUN BAKERY to Image Comics this February as an ongoing project.
It will be interesting to see what the new Image series will do for the back issues of Alternative Comics Original Series
The SUN BAKERY comics anthology features the following stories: “Dream Skills,” set in a city where guns are obsolete and the social culture is swordplay; “Arem,” the tale of a space adventurer on a quest to photograph the most beautiful galactic vistas; and “Bat Rider,” a supernatural skateboarding comic.
“Sentient paranormal skateboards, mecha-suited documentarian bounty hunters, and sword-culture spirit warriors,” said Lewis. “If you’re a fan of high concept ideas with dynamic action in a retro pulpy flavor, this comic is for you.”
SUN BAKERY #1 (Diamond code: DEC160666) hits comic book stores Wednesday, February 22nd. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, January 30th.
