People of Britain have a lot to be thankful for, possibly not what you may be thinking, but rather that sitting on Greenwich Mean Time does have its advantages. Namely, getting our comics hours before stores open up in the US, and in the case of CLiNT Magazine #8 we are an entire issue ahead.
This issue is a must for fans of Mark Millar’s work as, his collaboration with John Romita Jr, Kick-Ass 2 has a full 6 pages previewed within. Not only that but Millar’s other high-profile creation Superior has 3 pages to feast your eyes on. Those in the UK can pick up CLiNT today, others however, will have to wait and tantalise themselves with the forthcoming details.
Two years ago, Mark Millar partnered with Titan Publishing to bring about a new magazine. Part comic book anthology and part pop culture news, CLiNT was aimed not only at dedicated comics fans, but a mainstream audience as well. Now Image Comics’ critically acclaimed ongoing series WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?, by writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Tonci Zonjic, will be serialized in the magazine beginning this August.
“International intrigue? High-octane action? I might be talking about either CLiNT or WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?,” commented Edmondson. “But either way Tonci and I are thrilled to see our international spy dashing across the pages of the hottest publication in pop culture today.”
Starting with issue #8 of CLiNT, WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? can be enjoyed again from the beginning, offering new readers a chance to get hooked. For those that are already up to date with the pulse-pounding series, the fourth issue of Edmondson and Zonjic’s original comic book will be released in just a few weeks.
“We’re really jazzed here at CLiNT Magazine to have Nate and Tonci’s intriguing, stylish and very cool WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? join the line-up!” CLiNT co-Publisher Nick Landau added.
WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? will have plenty of good company within the glossy pages of CLiNT. Jonathan Ross and Tommy Lee Edwards’ TURF, and Garth Ennis, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti’s THE PRO were also serialized in the same slick fashion.
“CLiNT has done a fantastic job of serializing some truly great creator-owned material, from Mark’s own Nemesis, Superior and Kick Ass 2 to TURF and THE PRO, so we couldn’t be happier to see WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? join the club,” said Image Publisher Eric Stephenson.
WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? is a psychological thriller about a man named Jon Moore who is running from international hit men, the authorities, and his past, of which he has only partial memories. Jon just happens to have a secret weapon: the ever-present and seemingly omniscient Jake Ellis, whom only he can see and hear.
WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? #4 (FEB110476), a 32-page full color comic book priced at $2.99 will be available for sale in stores on June 1. The series will also be serialized in CLiNT Magazine, beginning in CLiNT #8 (FEB111147, FEB111148), which is due to hit shelves in the US on June 14th.
