New York Comic Con News: Image Comics has released information on three diverse titles for 2018: the multi-racial horror series Infidel,  the dystopian thriller Analog, and the unexpected romance OGN BINGO Love.

Former Vertigo editor Pornsak Pichetshote and artist Aaron Campbell explore the dark depth of xenophobia in the horror series Infidel.  The series explores Islamophobia though the story of an American Muslim woman and her multi-ethnic neighbors who are terrorized by ghostly creatures which feed on racism.  The series will launch in March 2018.

The new ongoing series Analog, written by Gerry Duggan (The Infinite Horizon, The Last Christmas) and drawn by David O’Sullivan, looks at a shattered black mirror of the future where security on the internet has been critically compromised.  Governments, corporations, and wealthy citizens now trust their secrets to printed paper, couriered from place to place by well-armed agents, called “ledger men.”  The series will launch in 2018.

Image also announced it will publish Tee Franklin and Jenn St-Onge’s original graphic novel BINGO Love, which tells the decades-long love story of two queer black women.  Franklin formed Inclusive Press to launch the graphic novel and funded it with a Kickstarter last spring that attracted the attention of several high-profile female comic creators (see “Graphic Novel Defies Romance Stereotypes”).  The story will release in stores in time for Valentine’s Day in February 2018.
