Image Comics announces ‘The Silver Coin’ going back to print

Michael Walsh and Chip Zdarsky express their excitement over ‘The Silver Coin’ selling out.

Press Release

Image Comics has revealed The Silver Coin is going back to print after selling out at the distributor level. The new anthology horror series by Michael Walsh and a new artist with each issue was released on April 7th. The first issue was written by Chip Zdarsky with Kelly Thompson writing issue #2, Ed Brisson writing issue #3, and Jeff Lemire writing issue #4.

“I’m beyond thrilled that people are reading our new series, and more importantly, buying it! I mean, this isn’t a library, pal!” Zdarsky said via press release sent to AIPT. “Though I do wholeheartedly support libraries. Please don’t turn this into a ‘Chip is anti-library’ thing. Just use one of my other quotes, okay?”

“When we brewed up the idea for The Silver Coin I had no idea it would connect with comics and horror fans in the way that it has,” said Walsh. “Over the last year I’ve put my heart and soul into creating this comic alongside some of the most talented writers in the industry and to see such a positive reception has me over the moon. Thank you!”

Check out the second printing cover below which will be available May 5th.

This first installment of the ongoing horror anthology series has hit big with fans and ComicBook.com described the self-contained story as, “everything you need for a spine-chilling read.”

“When we brewed up the idea for The Silver Coin I had no idea it would connect with comics and horror fans in the way that it has,” said Walsh. “Over the last year I’ve put my heart and soul into creating this comic alongside some of the most talented writers in the industry and to see such a positive reception has me over the moon. Thank you!”

Each issue of Silver Coin will tell a tale of terror in a shared supernatural world interwoven with common characters and overlapping stories. The series begins in 1978 with a failing rock band whose fortune suddenly changes when they find the mysterious Silver Coin. Little do they know that fame comes with a cost, and a curse is always hungry.

Zdarsky added: “I’m beyond thrilled that people are reading our new series, and more importantly, buying it! I mean, this isn’t a library, pal! Though I do wholeheartedly support libraries. Please don’t turn this into a ‘Chip is anti-library’ thing. Just use one of my other quotes, okay?”

Subsequent issues of The Silver Coin will showcase the talents of Kelly Thompson (Sabrina the Teenage Witch), Ed Brisson (Old Man Logan), and Jeff Lemire (Gideon Falls).

The Silver Coin #1, second printing (Diamond Code FEB219272) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 5.

The Silver Coin will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
