Recent DC exclusive writer Brian Michael Bendis has revealed some big plans for his Jinxworld imprint, which now resides at DC, and offered a timeline for more details on the titles and creators involved.
Bendis appeared on John Siuntres' Word Balloon podcast for another installment of their interview series "The Bendis Tapes," and along with some news about a possible "DC Challenge" style title on the horizon and some of the Marvel titles he was offered before leaving the publisher, Bendis gave the following update on his Jinxworld titles.
"For the Jinxworld line of books, this isn't just publishing my work and hoping for the best," Bendis explained. "They're treating the books as their own. There's a marketing campaign and a distribution campaign. It gives us an unheard of second chance to get Jinxworld up and running at a level it should have been running at the entire time, which is more robust. We'll have Scarlet Vol 3 and The Powers Graphic Novel, and announce new books about a month from now (At Emerald City Comic-Con) featuring some really big collaborators people will be really excited about."
Bendis previously announced a partial list of Jinxworld titles for which he had future plans, including Powers, Scarlet, The United States of Murder, A.K.A. Goldfish, Jinx, and Torso, along with several other titles up for reprint.
Emerald City Comic Con takes place March 1-4 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington.
