Media Release — HELL YEAH #1, the debut of a new Image Comics series by Joe Keatinge (GLORY) and Andre Szymanowicz has sold out ahead of its release today, March 7. The issue has immediately gone back to press and a second printing (JAN128123) will be in stores on April 4, the same day that HELL YEAH #2 (FEB120507) is released.
Keatinge made a splash earlier this year, penning the relaunch of Rob Liefeld’s GLORY (drawn by Ross Campbell), but his own series explores superheroics in a different way. The sons and daughters of superheroes, lost in the shadows cast by the glow of their idealized and idolized parents, have grown up to be just like any kids of rich and famous parents — some of them are rebellious, some of them are spoiled, some of them are overachievers with something to prove. And all of them need to save the world.
“I’m very stoked the reception for Hell Yeah has been so intense,” said writer Keatinge. “Andre and I are putting our all into what’s our ultimate passion project. We’re very excited to know there’s an equally passionate readership eager to give it a read.”
“I’m very grateful to the awesome comic readers, retailers and Image for taking us on,” added artist Szymanowicz. “This comic just gets more and more exhilarating for Joe and I with every issue, so I can’t wait for everyone to see what’s next!”
Comics writer Mark Millar (Kick Ass), co-creator with Frank Quitely of the upcoming Image series JUPITER’S CHILDREN lent his support to the new series. “With Hell Yeah and Glory, Joe Keatinge has established himself as the latest new writer I want to undermine and destroy,” he said. “It’s just top class stuff.”
HELL YEAH is a full-color monthly comic book available in comic book stores and mutliple digital platforms.
