The Sacrificers: Rick Remender and Max Fiumara Team Up for Sci-Fi Series at Image Comics
Image Comics has announced an upcoming series titled The Sacrificers. The upcoming sci-fi series comes from superstar creators Rick Remender and Max Fiumara as they take readers into the ethereal. The upcoming ongoing series was previously teased during this year’s Free Comic Book Day as it prepared readers for its epic launch this August.
Image’s series description reads:
In The Sacrificers, tomorrow is a harmonious paradise thanks to five families who make everything perfect…for the price of one child per household. Now, as that bill comes due, a son expected to give everything for a family that never loved him and an affluent daughter determined to destroy utopia who must now unite to end one generation’s unnaturally protracted reign.
Remender shares his love for Fiumara’s work, saying:
“Max has long been one of my very favorite artists. We worked together briefly on a Spider-Man story years ago and he’s always been at the top of my list of artists to reunite with.
I think what we’ve developed here is one of the most beautiful and unique stories in the marketplace, in no small part due to Max and color master Dave McCaig’s next level world creating. It is truly unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.”
“The Sacrificers is the book I’ve always dreamed of working on. The pitch completely hooked me with its combination of emotional human dilemmas, exciting worlds, and eccentric characters. I’m having a blast designing it.
The collaboration with Rick has been terrific, his way of thinking of story is amazingly simple and effective. He creates strong scenes that I manifest, we complement each other quite well, and Dave is doing such beautiful work with colors.”
The Sacrificers joins Remender’s growing library of creator-owned stories that have teamed up the New York Times bestselling authors with many top artists through Remender’s Giant Generator imprint at Image Comics.
More artists will join the sci-fi epic as top-tier talent will provide art for variant covers to be featured for The Sacrificer‘s premiere issue including Julian Totino Tedesco, Tula Lotay, Jenny Frison, Matteo Scalera, J.G. Jones, Nic Klein, J.H. Williams III, and Mike Mignola and series artist Fiumara.
