Artist Jae Lee teams with a trio of writers for three issues of mayhem.
Legendary artist Jae Lee will make an action-packed return to interior art in This Ends Tonight, a new miniseries from Image Comics.
Lee will work with co-writers Gerry Duggan, Kelvin Mao and Robert Windom on the three-issue series where each issue tells a separate, but interconnected, story. June Chung joins them on colors.
“I’ve been a fan of Jae’s since Inhumans back in the ’90s and a fan of Robert’s since he collaborated with Jae on the terrific series Seven Sons at Image last year,” Duggan said. “It’s my privilege to be a part of This Ends Tonight beginning this summer. You’re all in for a ride.”

Danny Bilson, Paul De Meo, Adam Hughes, Jae Lee and more contribute stories to the anthology.
IDW will publish an anthology one-shot featuring Dave Stevens’ The Rocketeer, with stories by Danny Bilson, Paul De Meo, Adam Hughes, Jae Lee and more.
The idea for the project sprang from 2022 documentary Dave Stevens: Drawn to Perfection by Kelvin Mao. Mao found out that The screenwriters for The Rocketeer movie, Bilson and De Meo, had written a Rocketeer comic book script featuring the Rocketeer teaming with Amelia Earhart. Hughes will draw that story, while Mao and Windom each wrote a new story for the one-shot.

Nalo Hopkinson, Kat Howard, Si Spurrier and Dan Watters join Gaiman for four new titles in the new line.
Neil Gaiman will return to the world of The Sandman in a new curated line for DC’s Vertigo imprint, called, appropriately, The Sandman Universe. The line will kick off with a one-shot that’ll set up the return of three former Vertigo titles and one new one.
“… it’s a huge sandbox with so many wonderful toys that nobody’s getting to play with right now,” Gaiman told Entertainment Weekly about why he decided to return to these characters. “I started feeling guilty. I liked the idea of getting the toys played with again, reminding people how much fun this is, and also getting the opportunity to work with some fantastic writers. Down the line, there will be fantastic artists as well.”
The project kicks off this August with The Sandman Universe one-shot special, which catches readers up on what’s been happening in The Dreaming, the realm where the Daniel, the current Sandman, rules. But Daniel’s gone missing, leaving chaos in his wake. The one-shot will also catch up with two other Gaiman creations who enjoyed their own success at Vertigo — Books of Magic star Tim Hunter and Lucifer, whose ongoing series ran for 75 issues and later inspired the FOX TV series of the same name.
