The Return of A1

A1 #1 Odyssey CoverTitan Comics look like they are going to take 2013 by storm. They have already offered comics creators the chance top pitch their work as well as being a breeding ground for a new and interesting books coming out later this year. Now they are bringing back A1, the award-winning anthology series by Dave Elliott on June 5th 2013.

A1 has been running since the 1980s, with some of the biggest comic names bringing forth their own creator owned stories:

Alan Moore, Barry Windsor-Smith, Eddie Campbell, Dave Gibbons, Brian Bolland, Bill Sienkiewicz, Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean, Glenn Fabry, Peter Milligan, David Lloyd, Phil Bond, Jamie Hewlett, Dougie Braithwaite, Grant Morrison, Moebius, Alan Martin, D’Israeli, Kelly Jones, Nick Abadzis, Steve Dillon and many, many more.

It now returns with Elliot writing the three stories himself:

A1 now returns monthly, showcasing three brand-new ongoing stories reflecting the variety it has always been known for:

Weirding Willows, by writer Dave Elliott and artists Barnaby Bagenda, Sami Basri, Sakti Yuwono & Jessica Kholinne, sees the worlds of Wonderland, OZ, Neverland, Mars, Pellucidar and Elysium leak through portals into the little English town of Willow Weir, as Alice and her allies defend her world from the things that would come through those portals to destroy them!

Odyssey, by writer Dave Elliott and artists Garrie Gastonny and Sakti Yuwono, follows an immortal military superhero, out of place and time, who finds himself in the middle of an eternal war for mankind between Angels and Demons!

Carpe DIEm, by writer W. H. Rauf and artist/creator Rhoald Marcelius, follows an offbeat group of the world’s seven greatest assassins: one for each day of the week! Their leader is always a Sir Monday… but the rest of the team always hate Mondays! A riot of colour and concepts in a Tank Girl vein.

This new comic publisher is the talk of the comics scene at the moment. They seem to be firing on all cylinders. Titan Comics and A1: the thing to watch this year.
