Amazon has just announced the launch of their newest publishing imprint Jet City Comics, which will be dedicated to producing comics and graphic novels!
Jet City arrives on the scene with new comics from George R. R. Martin, Hugh Howey (author of Wool), and Neal Stephenson. Original adaptations of George R.R. Martin’s short story, “Meathouse Man,” and Hugh Howey’s best-selling science fiction novel, Wool, will follow in October.
Jet City issues will publish on Kindle as standalone comics, as serialized comics released over multiple episodes, and as bundled graphic novels, with print editions available at Amazon and other comics retailers.
They’re also bringing back Dunk and Egg! George R. R. Martin comments on his projects for Jet City:
“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, “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.”
