GrayHaven Comics Launches 2nd Ongoing Series


In 2010 friends on a message board got together and published their own anthology. The book was called The Gathering. It was the first book to come out under the newly formed GrayHaven Comics banner.  The theme of the issue was, appropriately enough:  Hope.

Two years later, over 50 different up and coming creators (along with pros like Gail Simone, Sterling Gates and John Jackson Miller) have helped create stories for seven different issues of The Gathering.

Earlier this year it was announced that 2012 will feature a monthly shipping schedule from GrayHaven Comics. Ten issues of The Gathering and two one shots (My Geek Family by Doug Hahner and Donal DeLay and Sparks by Glenn Matchett and Cassandra James) will see print as well as the concluding chapters of Ever After (Matt O’Keefe and Lee Giles) the first GHC mini-series.

Well, more expansion is on the way.

Increased attention to the book in the past few months coupled with a very successful showing at the recent NYCC is the biggest reason for a more aggressive publishing schedule and the launch of this new new ongoing.  Two of the best-selling issues of The Gathering were Volumes 4 and 6 (our Horror themed issue) so rather than just do a Horror themed issue every other month the more obvious choice to us was to create a new ongoing

At the forefront of The Gathering is a desire to bring new writers and artists who’ve not had a chance to be published and give them that opportunity in a series with a wide variety of themes that keeps things fresh for both readers and creators. With the new Horror series we’ll have open submissions  as well, but for the most part we’ll be using folks who’ve worked with us before that we know can hit the deadlines and work within the demands the new book will present. From longer page counts for stories to possible ongoing arcs this one will be a different monster in how it’s prepared and how we go about choosing which submissions to accept.

Tales From the Abyss will launch at the end of 2012 and the quarterly ongoing will continue through 2013.

Look for further details and submission information in early January
