Public Domain comic Official press release below:

Multiple Eisner, Shuster, and Harvey award winning writer/artist Chip Zdarsky (Batman, Newburn) will kick off a new story arc to the Eisner Award winning series Public Domain this July. This new chapter in the beloved comic book series will begin with issue #6 and hit shelves from Image Comics.

Public Domain is the most personal work of mine to date, so I’m incredibly happy to be putting more issues of it out into the world again,” said Zdarsky. “I’m writing, drawing, coloring, lettering and desigining every element of the book, so it’s as pure a form of ‘Chip Zdarsky’ as there can be! Is that a good thing? I’ll let history judge.”

Zdarsky will also be teaming with fan-favorite artist Rachael Stott (Fantastic Four, Dr. Who) and stellar colorist Eren Angiolini (Justice League: Last Ride) to bring fans the in-universe comic book at the center of the Public DomainThe Domain—this July as well for double the Public Domain impact.

In Public Domain #6, Dallas Comics is up and running! But can Syd put aside his feelings and make a Domain comic for a new generation before Jerry Jasper and Singular Comics beat him to it? And who is the mysterious British hunk, Carter Dusk? Nobody knows, but it’s his first appearance, so you better buy this issue and get it graded just in case!

Public Domain follows Syd Dallas, the legendary comic book artist responsible for pop culture’s greatest hero: The Domain! But his sons Miles and David have a complicated relationship with both the creation and their creator. Can they come together and create a comic worthy of Syd’s legacy?

This thought provoking series shines a light on the all-too-common battle between creators and corporations in a world where the billion-dollar creations dominate the cultural landscape.
