Quick Update

We’ve been going through some changes and working hard on upcoming projects. Unfortunately that means our social media and even our website updates have suffered. We wanted to take some time to enjoy the holidays and our families and we hope that you did too. We will soon be making announcements about titles, appearances and various other things we’ve been working on. There are some incredible announcements coming so stay tuned!

Grindstone Toys Announcement!

Broken Icon Comics is pleased to announce our project with Grindstone Toys on the upcoming CALLSIGN: LONGBOW™ comic.

“Grindstone Toys is excited to announce that a CALLSIGN: LONGBOW™ comic is officially in development with the team from Broken Icon Comics! This enables us to tell the LONGBOW™ story alongside action figure releases and present a fuller vision of the world we’re building.” Troy McKie, Grindstone Toys.  

“This comic will be an action packed introduction to the members of Team LONGBOW™ and their adversaries, setting them on a path for further adventures in the future. This first issue of the comic will be available as a free digital comic, and will be released either before or alongside the CALLSIGN: LONGBOW™ Series 1 Toy Kickstarter (coming in 2022)” he concluded.

Nick Wentland (TMNT, Army of Darkness, GI Joe) will be bringing this incredible world to life with Drax Gal (The Ballad of Al Snow and Head) illustrating and lettering by RINGO nominated letterer Justin Birch (Bird’s of Prey, Miraculous).

The Next Ballad

Al Snow, Head and the rest of the gang are back for the second ballad!

This winter Al Snow and Head, the greatest American spies of all time, search high and low for Pepper, whose been kidnapped by Soviet Canada. From battling spies in the sky to fighting secret weapons of the Royal Coalition of Canadian Providences, the RCCP, Al Snow does it all.

The Ballad of Al Snow and Head is written by Eric Watkins, illustrated by Drax Gal (Monitor), colored by Nick Wentland (TMNT, GI Joe, The Ballad of Al Snow and Head) and lettered by former RINGO nominated letterer, Justin Birch (Bird’s of Prey, Miraculous, Frank).

The Ballad of Al Snow Kickstarter

Broken Icon Comics Launches New Series, The Ballad of Al Snow and Head, Featuring Former WWE Superstar, Al Snow.

Broken Icon Comics is thrilled to announce the release of The Ballad of Al Snow and Head. A comedic romp that takes us from the real world deep into the insanity of Al’s mind. The premier issue is set in a post-apocalyptic Louisville, KY, where Al’s misadventures lead him to underground societies, brutal Thunderdome-esque fighting rings, and the highest levels of government. 

Al Snow is the hero that no one asked for, and just can’t seem to get rid of. A blend of action, comedy, and parody come together in a tale unlike any other.

Teaming up with Al presented a unique opportunity for us. A chance to make a comic book featuring a wrestler without resorting to a biographical or generic wrestling book. The goal was to take what was great about Al’s character, and tell stories in such a way only comics could do. Why limit the adventures through Al’s insanity to the ring, or even the real world?

We’re launching a Kickstarter on 04/22. This gives us a chance to get this book out to the most people the quickest. By selling directly to the fans, you get not only first dibs on the book (with a Kickstarter Exclusive option, no less,) but also first access to limited edition metal prints and autographs from the man himself.

We put together a killer team for this one, and can’t wait for everyone to see how it turned out. The book is written by Eric Watkins with art by Tommy Patterson (Game of Thrones, Farscape), colors by Rob Dumo (Robyn Hood, KCNA) and Nick Wentland (TMNT, GI Joe), and letters by Justin Birch (Miraculous, Birds of Prey).

 “To say that I am excited and honored to have this comic book being published, based on myself and HEAD, would be an understatement. I will always be grateful for my professional wrestling career and my time being a WWE superstar. It has continued to give me amazing opportunities such as this.” -Al Snow

Going to be a lot of news on this one as we launch. Keep checking back for more info, and be sure to back it!

Monster Syndicate

The Monster Syndicate is a fresh take on the deep underworld of the Cosa Nostra. This series delves deep into a new mythology of crime lords, blending horror based monsters and creatures that go bump in the night with mafia-style drama and action.

King grew up in the system, abandoned as a child and raised by the streets of New York City. Now, King is King and controls New York through the crime families that sit at his table. Each family, a house of beasts, created by the ancient Sumerian God, Anu, rule the city and it’s underworld. Under King’s watchful eyes, the families operate, but who watches them when the King isn’t looking?

Monster Syndicate is an ongoing series written by Eric Watkins and illustrated by the newest BIC addition, Drax Gal. Monster Syndicate will be available in 2022!

Monitor was selected to be part of the Urban…

Once again we are bringing recognition to one of BIC’s newest titles, Monitor by Damian Wampler. Monitor was just selected to be a part of the 2020 Urban Mediamakers Festival’s online event starting October 19th. 

“This is a great honor for myself, artist Elisabeth Mkheidze and colorist Łukasz Juśkiewicz. And of course to our cover artist Drax Gal, BIC Creative Coordinator Nicholas Wentland and BIC Chief Eric Watkins” said Wampler. 

Monitor is the story of Eric, a rogue Axon, and Talira, a Disconnected radical, as they race to escape the heavily-policed city-state and find freedom among the free-born peoples living on the fringes of society. Explore the ideas of connectivity, what freedom truly is and who makes the truth and its meaning.
