Lab Entertainment is happy to announce that Jeremy Dale’s Skyward will
become the first true ongoing title for the independent publisher.
Scheduled to debut at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Skyward was
originally envisioned as a six-issue mini-series, but it was decided,
given the grand story that Dale wants to tell with the book, that an
ongoing, sequentially-numbered title would be the best option.
addition, each issue of Skyward, beginning with issue #3, will feature
an alternate cover produced by some of the more popular and well-known
artists in the industry. Confirmed guest cover artists include Stephane
Roux (Witchblade, Zatanna) for issue 3, Mike Norton (The Answer!,
Battlepug) for issue 4, Khary Randolph (Fanboys vs. Zombies) for issue
5, Randy Green (Teen Titans) for issue 6, Phil Noto (Infinite Horizon)
for issue 7, and Chris Giarrusso (G-man, Mini Marvels) for Issue 8.
are number of other artists already lined up for future issues,
including Brandon Peterson, Tim Seely, Todd Nauck, Cully Hamner, Gene
Ha, and more.
1 and 2 will also feature alternate covers, but these will be available
only at San Diego Comic Con. The issue 1 alternate has art by series
creator Jeremy Dale, while issue 2’s alternate is a blank white sketch
thrilled to announce that Skyward, my new creator-owned series, is now
ongoing,” says series creator Jeremy Dale. “We are simply overwhelmed
at all the amazing feedback from the fans! This will allow me to tell
more stories with these amazing characters, as well as tell them in the
manner they deserve.” Dale adds that, “We have a lot of amazing plans
on the horizon for Skyward, and we can’t wait to share them with
Lab President Kevin Freeman added, “We’ve been talking about the idea
of adding ongoing series for some time, but it can be difficult for
independent publishers to maintain numbers. But with Jeremy Dale’s
Skyward, we see the perfect opportunity not only to break into the
ongoing market, but to also showcase a grand story without the confines
of compartmentalizing story arcs. It’s a win-win situation.”
Beginning with issue 3, Skyward, and all Action Lab regular titles, will cost only $2.99, down from $3.99.
Lab has published numerous series of some of its titles, most noted
being the Eisner-nominated Princeless, which has been released as two
four-issue mini-series plus a handful of one-shots and other
supplemental stories. More Princeless stories are on the horizon.
