Friday's Headlines - Comic Book News



Black Mask Studios has cancelled the long-delayed Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes OGN trilogy, as well as a collection of Curt Pires, Chris Peterson, and Alex Diotto's 2005 miniseries Mayday. The news came from Diamond Comic Distributors, while the publisher states they plan to re-solicit the titles for publication at a later, unspecified date.

"It's just us cleaning up our corner of the Diamond system. The Mayday trade was solicited in 2015 but didn't come out yet due to some issues that arose in 2015 and affected a number of titles," Black Mask's Maddy Dawson. "The Godkiller trades had a Blu-ray insert that created a conflict with U.K. shops because of government ratings laws. So the Blu-rays had to be rated by the U.K. government which wound up not happening and as a result the book fell off the schedule."

MAYDAY TP

(W) Curt Pires (A) Christopher Peterson, Alex Diotto (CA) Alexis Ziritt
A washed-up, drug-addicted screenwriter and a transgender bartender stumble onto a Satanic cult's plan to sacrifice people all across LA (geomapped in the form of a pentagram, of course) and bring on armageddon. As our intrepid, damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, even they wonder if this is all really happening or if they're just plain batshit crazy. Probably both. Collecting the lunacy that is Mayday #1-4 by brilliant sociopath Curt Pires and brash artists Chris Peterson and Alex Diotto.
