. Ever since playing the first Metal Gear Solid
, it has forever altered the way I view games. The story it told was so memorable and the gameplay experience so rich that it has shaped my expectation of games as both a designer and gamer. So the opportunity to bring this masterpiece to the table has been an honor and dream come true. I’m excited to be able to capture the tactical stealth action that is the hallmark of the franchise as well as create a new experience and story for the Snake fans. Age hasn’t slowed him down one bit.”Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game

'HAPPY!' SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE, TRAILER01/16/19 @ 10:27 pm EST
Known as America's first fully painted graphic novel, the poetic, philosophical, and groundbreaking Moonshadow gets a deluxe hardcover treatment available Summer 2019. This definitive edition with over 500 pages includes a new introduction by creator J.M. DeMatteis, as well as a bonus section featuring early concept work.
Moonshadow tells the story of a romantic, unreliable narrator who leads us through his interplanetary coming-of-age story, as an older Moonshadow recounts his strange birth in outer space, his escape from a deep-space zoo, and his struggles to survive in a war-torn universe.
Featuring gorgeous watercolor artwork by Eisner Award Winner and Caldecott Honoree Jon J Muth (Neil Gaiman's The Sandman: The Wake), this influential "fairy tale for adults" includes the Farewell Moonshadow illustrated novella that gives fans a look at Moon’s life after his tumultuous, space-faring teens and misadventures with the miscreant Ira. Digitally restored and including all original cover work, this volume also includes illustrations by Kent Williams (Epic Illustrated, Havok, Wolverine: Meltdown) and Eisner Award Winner George Pratt (Wolverine: Netsuke, Epic Illustrated, Enemy Ace: War Idyll) and lettering by Kevin Nowlan (Lobster Johnson, The Goon: Noir, Doctor Strange). A sci-fi fantasy that Ray Bradbury called, "Beautiful, original, haunting," and DeMatteis himself calls "Dickens' David Copperfield meets Siddhartha in space."
This beautiful classic returns to comic shops June 12, 2019, arrives in bookstores on June 25, 2019, and is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop.
In addition to this new hardcover treatment of Moonshadow, J.M. DeMatteis will also publish The Girl in the Bay, a new comic series with artist Corin Howell, on February 6, 2019. The Girl in the Bay is the next installment in Karen Berger’s critically acclaimed Berger Books imprint at Dark Horse.

BOOM! STUDIOS ANNOUNCES NEW OVER THE GARDEN WALL ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL01/16/19 @ 8:13 pm EST
Under the banner of his new publishing company Coffin Comics, Brian Pulido, the founder of Chaos! Comics and the creator of iconic comic book characters Lady Death and Evil Ernie, announced “Fiend Fest”, coming February 22 – 24, 2019 at the Phoenix Marriot in Mesa, AZ.
“Fiend Fest” (“Fiends” are what Pulido lovingly calls his fans) is not your average comic book convention. Fans of Brian Pulido, Coffin Comics or fans of independent comic book publishing will have an all-access experience of a working comic book publishing company, its staff and creators in this interactive event.
With a $40.00 weekend pass, attendees will receive a collectible Holo-Foil ticket, an exclusive Fiend Fest Edition comic, and a pre-order opportunity for many of the Festival only comics and merchandise. But that is only the beginning.
Creator Guests include Pulido, original Chaos! Comics colorist Jason Jensen, Zombie Tramp Creator Dan Mendoza and many more. Guests will mingle and party with attendees all weekend long.
Attendees can schedule a guided tour of nearby Coffin Comics headquarters (HQ) on Feb. 23 or Feb. 24 and see The Pulido Archive, the War Room, Coffin Comics Shop and other never before seen areas. (Shuttle transportation provided.)
Also never before LIVE comic book creation events will be performed at “Fiend Fest” such as “Instant Jewel Editions” where a jeweler will create jeweled comics “live and in person”. Along with “Instant Metal Editions” where real METAL comic book covers will be created on demand and also the much anticipated “Instant Edition” where a comic book cover is drawn on the spot, then colored and finally printed and returned by the end of the con.
But that’s not all - “Fiend Fest” will also include artist commissions, comic book grading, a trading post (designated area for fans to buy / sell / trade with each other), panel discussions, a Friday night launch party mixer & a Saturday night blow out party. And much more!
“We are pouring our souls into this event,” says Pulido. “But this is it. I’m not planning another Fiend Fest. But it is Lady Death’s 25th anniversary and I wanna celebrate with the fiends, so come on down and have some fun with us!”
