Image Comics Publishes ‘I Kill Giants’ with a New Movie Cover

Posted by March 13, 2018 Comment

Five years ago, Image Comics published Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura‘s I Kill Giants. It is now an upcoming American fantasy thriller film directed by Anders Walter from a screenplay by Joe Kelly, based on the original Image comic series. The film stars Madison Wolfe, Imogen Poots, Sydney Wade, Rory Jackson and Zoe Saldana. And now they are reissuing the collection with a cover from the movie, Collecting I Kill Giants #1-#7.

Barbara Thorson is your new hero: A quick-witted, sharp-tongued fifth grader who isn’t afraid of anything. Why would she be..? After all, she’s the only girl in school who carries a Norse war hammer in her purse and kills giants for a living… At least, that’s what she’ll tell you…but where does the fantasy end and reality begin in the heart of this troubled girl? And what if she’s telling the truth?

Brought to life with unexpected tenderness by Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura, I Kill Giants is the bittersweet story of a young girl struggling to conquer monsters both real and imagined as her carefully constructed world crumbles at the feet of giants bigger than any one child can handle.

It will be in comic stores on April 4th.

More comic publishers should do this. Sadly, the divisions within Marvel Comics prevents them from putting Robert Downey Jr. on the cover of Iron Man every month, in the way that, say, the Doctor Who comic never has a problem with…

Copies of the original printing of I Kill Giants #1 have gone for $100 raw or over $225 when CGC slabbed. The collection might be a more affordable option.

The movie is out on the 23rd of March in the USA, in cinemas and digitally, and on the 6th April in cinemas and 4th May digitally in the UK.
