CHICAGO, IL – October 20, 2014 – New Chicago limited screen print society, Secret Panel, announced today that they are launching their first print series based on the Image Comics series Revival. A beautiful ‘rural noir’ that puts a new twist on the zombie genre, created by NYT Bestselling author TIM SEELEY and acclaimed artist MIKE NORTON. Secret Panel will be releasing 3 limited edition prints by Jenny Frison, Angela An, and Randy Ortiz. In addition you can become officially initiated into the Secret Panel by purchasing all 3 prints and receive an additional exclusive 4th print. Limited qty of 140 for $30 each or get all 3 plus the exclusive for $90.
As a fan of both Revival and the wonderful trend of independent collectives and studios launching to make high-quality prints, such as Mondo and Odd City Entertainment, this is great news. So many of Image’s books have a strong design aesthetic so it’s fantastic to see that aspect celebrated through partnerships like this. If you happen to be in the Chicago area (lucky you!), be sure to check out the launch party at Challengers Comics, details below!
Challengers Comics – 845 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60647- will be hosting a launch party on Oct. 25th starting at 8pm as part of their annual Halloween party. Tim Seeley, Mike Norton, and Jenny Frison will be on hand. Uptons Naturals will be providing snacks and Secret Panel will be giving away stickers and buttons. All prints will be available for sale at the launch party.
Secret Panel’s origins are shrouded in mystery but are rumored to made up of members from Delicious Design League, Threadless, and Arcade Brewery. Secret Panel’s mission is to bring high end collectible screen prints based on indie / creator-owned comics and video games while secretly ruling the world. Get initiated!
Secret Panel’s next series will be for the hit indie video game Hotline Miami
