Image Comics Introduces A Gritty New Comic Book Series: “Glitterbomb”

Image Comics is getting some pretty great feedback on their upcoming series, “Glitterbomb.”

Fan-favorite Jim Zub (WAYWARD, Thunderbolts) and debut artist Djibril Morisette-Phan will launch an all-new series that tears into the heart of Hollywood in GLITTERBOMB this September.

Farrah Durante is a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. But the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture she’s drowning in isn’t the only problem—her frustrations are a powerful lure for something horrifying out beyond the water…something ready to strike.

“Hollywood is a place of extremes—wealth and influence propped up by fragile egos and desperation,” said Zub. “It’s fertile ground for telling a story of intense drama and blood-soaked vengeance.”

“GLITTERBOMB is one of my first steps in the world of comics, and I feel very fortunate,” said Morisette-Phan. “It has been a great vehicle for me to start some much-needed reflection about fame culture and the relationship I want to have with it. I’d love GLITTERBOMB to kick-start a conversation we could all be part of.”

First announced at Image Expo, GLITTERBOMB is already raking in accolades: “Sharply written and drawn, with deft insight into the trappings of celebrity culture, GLITTERBOMB just might be the ultimate Hollywood horror story,” said Karen Berger, founder of DC’s Vertigo imprint.
