Lots of Changes at Lion Forge and Catalyst Prime, from the Diamond Retailer Summit

Posted by April 5, 2018 Comment

Lots of announcements were packed into the Lion Forge presentation at the Diamond Retailer Summit dinner. Lion Forge Co-Founders Dave Steward II (CEO) and Karl Reed (CCO) will be the new Executive Editors of the company’s Catalyst Prime superhero imprint.

Along with that move the Catalyst Prime comic Superb will now be released under Lion Forge’s Roar imprint for teens and young adults, while Noble, as previously reported, has been canceled but will be resoliticited.

But as one door closes, another opens, and Catalyst Prime will see a new series called Quincredible by Mildred Louis and Selina Espiritu.

Brandon Easton, Ramon Govea, and Jose Jaro will be the new creative team for Incidentals, and Alex Paknadel will take over as writer of Kino. And joining Gene Ha’s Mae, Jane’s World, the comic strip by Paige Braddock, will join Lion Forge with a new book, Love Letters to Jane’s World.

More new series include Ballad of Yaya by and Sheets by Jean-Marie Omont and Golo Zhao, as well as Sheets by Brenna Thummler.

The company also announced plans to publish a gaming magazine in the future (the tabletop kind, not the video kind), and said that the Puerto Rico Strong anthology has sold out and will go back to press.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
