Image Comics has announced plans to publish print versions of two Substack comics — Public Domain by Chip Zdarsky and The Closet by James Tynion IV and Gavin Fullerton.
Zdarsky has been publishing Public Domain via his Substack newsletter almost since the newsletter went live last year, while The Closet debuted just a few weeks ago on Tynion’s Tiny Onion newsletter.
“In June, issue one will hit shelves, and it’ll be an ongoing monthly series (as long as my hand/arm/brain hold out)!” Zdarsky said about Public Domain, which he both writes and draws. “So for those of you who are NOT paid subscribers, you can check it out then and come back here to sign up and find out what happens next!”
Public Domain stars Syd Dallas, a comic book artist responsible for pop culture’s greatest hero, The Domain. But his sons Miles and David have a complicated relationship with both the creation and their creator. Can they convince their dad to fight for their family’s legacy? The ongoing series kicks off in June.
The Closet, meanwhile, is about a man moving cross-country with his family and dragging the past along with them. His son sees monsters in the bedroom closet and will not let them go. It will run for three issues from Image, starting in June.
