DARBY POP PUBLISHING JULY 2017 SOLICITATIONS
INDESTRUCTIBLE GN VOL 01
(W) Jeff Kline (A) Javi Garron, Chris Johnson, Salvi Garcia (CA) Jose Lopez
Meet Greg Pincus, the planet’s brand-spanking-newest super-hero. One problem: Greg is neither super, nor particularly heroic. But, he’s definitely enjoying the perks that accompany the world’s misconception. Can Greg successfully navigate a celebrity-obsessed culture without revealing his secret shame – or getting himself killed? Will his hirsute best friend/roommate (Barry) ever stop making things worse? Will the League of Defenders quit sniping long enough to actually battle evil? And, most importantly, will Greg’s Mother ever be freakin’ satisfied? Collects issues #1-4 of the hit series and includes spin-off Stingray #1 (her origin story) from writer Jeff Marsick and artist Luca Reguzzoni.

SIDE-KICKED GN VOL 01
(W) Russell Brettholtz (A) Bong Dazo (A/CA) Miguel Mendonca
The sold-out Side-Kicked is back, and Darby Pop has added two additional origin stories, the winning entries from our most recent “Breaking into Comics” contest! It should come as no surprise to learn that, within the super-hero “community,” egos run rampant. But how does all that free-flowing narcissism impact those standing just outside the spotlight? Chicago finds out when five of the city’s most loyal Sidekicks finally grow tired of being disrespected by both the prima donnas they work with and the citizenry they strive to protect. And it’s not like the Windy City needs another labor upheaval!
