Copra Press Returns

COPRA #38

comiXology

“Minceville, USA”

The world is not what it seems anymore – carnage and chaos, tension and treachery, a landscape literally warped beyond comprehension. Is this the paradise that the super elite channeled from beyond? COPRA is the only thing standing between angry gods and the nightmare fuel they want to douse us in.

COPRA #39

comiXology

“Loyalty in the Face of Vast Disrespect”

Larger than life forces toying with the fate of the little people with reckless abandon – sounds familiar! Will COPRA’s big plan pay off in victory OR will it send our team spiraling into further doom? One thing is for sure: our crew will look fabulous either way.

Copra Press is back with COPRA #s 38 & 39! I’ve returned to self-publishing the single COPRA issues (and to the legacy numbering, picking up right where our last release left off) while Image Comics continues to publish the collections & digital.

Those two new issues quickly sold out, but don’t let that stop you from going to my online store for possible extra copies and trades. Also, check out the COPRA FAQ for a list of Local Comic Shops that carry new issues COPRA just in case.

COPRA #1

COPRA #1 release date: October 2, 2019

“End of Complications”
Super stoked to get back to COPRA. I made this first Image issue a 40 page, full-color bonanza that picks up moments after the last issue left off… and it’s still a great introductory story for brand new readers.

Cover Process

Speaking of the original series, those collections have been made available again Image Comics. COPRA is also available digitally via comiXology.

C O P R A #30 + Summer Conventions

It had to happen. THIRTY ISSUES. It’s not every day a comic hits that number. Enter: COPRA versus COPRA in this milestone 30th issue! The classic team rumbles with Team X and things go down in Miami the only way they can: sleazy, chaotic, brutal. Why are you reading this instead of buying it?!

But hey, you’re here already. Let me tell you about some conventions I’ll be attending in June.

CAKE in Chicago, IL · June 10-11

and

HEROES CON in Charlotte, NC · June 16-18

Additionally, Mark Peters gave COPRA a great write-up over at Salon. It’s a streamlined, reader-friendly summation, so pass it along to any friend or enemy who hasn’t yet jumped on board.

Additionally Part Two: CBR’s Chris Neill evaluates COPRA through the lens of Watchmen while briefly breaking down the history of comic book analogues.

Back to COPRA 30. Get it in print. Get it digitally. Either way, get it. Here’s a preview.
