Amazon launches new comic imprint with titles from George R.R. Martin, Hugh Howey, and more -- EXCLUSIVE
Get ready to see one of George R.R. Martin’s “strangest, darkest, and most twisted” short stories in comic book form.
Amazon Publishing has announced the launch of Jet City Comics, a new imprint devoted to comics and graphic novels, and they already have an impressive lineup of titles on deck. First up is Symposium #1, adapted from the fantasy book series The Foreworld Saga, and October will bring original adaptations of George R.R. Martin’s short story “Meathouse Man” and Hugh Howey’s sci-fi self-publishing phenomenon Wool. Jet City issues will be available as Kindle downloads and print editions.
“My fans have been clamoring for the return of Dunk & Egg ever since the graphic novels of ‘The Hedge Knight’ and ‘The Sworn Sword’ went out of print several years ago,” said author George R.R. Martin in a press release, “so I am delighted to announce that Jet City Comics is bringing them back — newly formatted for digital readers, and in paper for those who still prefer the traditional formats. And Jet City will be bringing you something new as well: the graphic novel ‘Meathouse Man,’ adapted from one of my strangest, darkest, and most twisted short stories by the amazingly talented Raya Golden. I’m pleased and excited to be a part of Jet City’s takeoff. May they fly high.”
