The bestselling team behind the hit series Curse Words is back at Image with a new 8-issue series coming May, 2022. The series will be written by Charles Soule (Star Wars, Letter 44) with art by Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts) and is called Eight Billion Genies.
"Back in 2017, Ryan Browne and I launched our epic mega-series Curse Words through Image Comics," said Soule. "We didn't think we'd ever do anything wilder or bigger or with as many possibilities for the story to go absolutely anywhere. Now, almost exactly five years later...we've gone and done it! Eight Billion Genies is both of us working at the top of our games, using everything we've learned about making comics to execute the craziest premise we could think of. Eight Billion Genies is a high-wire act for us as creators all the way through—literally on any page the whole thing could unravel. But it doesn't—it just gets better, with every single issue. This is a thoughtful book about all of us, our lives and desires, and this particular moment in history—but it's absolutely drowning in genies, too. And jokes! Lots of great jokes. It'll make you laugh, cry, think...and wish. It'll definitely make you wish. Can't wait for everyone to see it."
Eight Billion Genies asks the question, if you had one wish, what would you ask for? Now, what if everyone else on Earth had the same? That's right, everyone has been granted their own personal genie to get that one thing they've always wanted. Well, of course, that means that hell breaks loose across the globe...and that's just where everything starts!
