Image Comics has announced The Ride will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a brand new, five-part story from the creative team of Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard.
The Ride first hit shelves back in 2004 as the flagship title of a 12-gauge line focused around a 1968 Camaro convertible, and the lives altered by its passing. The Camaro operated as a vehicle both figuratively and literally, for stories rife with “bullets, babes, murder, and mayhem.”
Image Comics is pleased to announce that The Ride will celebrate its 15th anniversary with an all-new, five-part story from the award-winning team of Plastic–Doug Wagner and Daniel Hillyard. This action-packed miniseries will launch from Image Comics in June and will feature special backup content from Adam Hughes.
“Fifteen years? Really? Well then, I guess I’d better turn up the heat on this one,” said Wagner. “Let’s see. How about…Unicorn onesies, love paddles, leather bunny ears, a guy in a Sailor Moon outfit that’s way too tight, an angel with only one arm and a heroin problem, a hairless dwarf, and a disavowed detective whose past desperately wants her burned alive–are all going to take a road trip in a classic ’68 Camaro that may or may not be cursed. The Ride 15th anniversary is going to be a wild, disturbing, and excessively violent tale of redemption. Welcome to what I like to call FETISH NOIR!”
After serving a hard 15 years in prison on a murder plea, former Atlanta P.D. detective Samantha Vega now makes her living as a bouncer at an exotic dance club. But life on the outside isn’t easy, especially when enemies have scores to settle…
The Ride #1 Cover A by Hughes (Diamond Code APR190014) and The Ride #1 Cover B by Hillyard (Diamond Code APR190015) will be available on Wednesday, June 12. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 20.
The Ride #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
