J.H. Williams III, Haden Blackman, Dave Stewart and Todd Klein tell the story of a thief in a bizarre future world.
The all-star team of J.H. Williams III, Haden Blackman, Dave Stewart and Todd Klein have been working on their latest comic Echolands for years — the comic was first announced back in 2018 at the Image Expo. And now Image has announced that the first issue will finally arrive in August.
“I’m beyond excited we’re finally bringing Echolands to everyone, and incredibly stoked to be reunited with longtime creative partners Haden, Dave and Todd, for what is a vast challenging world building project unlike any other we’ve attempted before,” said Williams III. “It’s a lifelong dream years in development, featuring an amazing cast of characters that we believe you’ll love as much as we do.

So let’s get to it …

“Blackbird is a labor of love, a coming of age story and beautiful people doing insane things with magic,” said Humphries.
