    Default Si Spurrier Headlines A New Creator Owned Imprint From Titan Comics

    [FONT=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', 'Bitstream Charter', Times, serif]Titan Comics are launching a new creator owned imprint in July, with a bunch of British industry talent and an eye on the American market.[/FONT]

    A number of these comics have appeared in one form or other, but never in anything so high profile. Do we have a British Image on our hands?

    This is awesome news. I was *just yesterday* wishing that there was a compete collected edition(s) of "First Kingdom."
    I was also surprised to find in my searching that Jack Katz is still alive today.

    I wonder how many ideas that writers develop for 2000AD will now go to this creator owned imprint. Interesting times indeed.

    will these only be available in the UK?

    seems more like MARVEL's ICON line to me ... or what VERTIGO was originally supposed to be .. basically an established publisher opens up a little boutique line with the sales pitch of "creator owned" ..

    whereas IMAGE is all creator owned and has been from the start ..

    I'm hoping they do a decent digital option

    I'm both very intrigued and aroused.
