Happy New Year, everyone! 2014 was a fantastic year for And Then Emily Was Gone, with the series getting a worldwide release and enjoying much acclaim and success. But 2015 is set to be even bigger, starting with the launch of the collected edition of the series in comic shops in just a couple of weeks (order code: NOV141187).

Continuing the tradition of the series, we have a guest artist drawing the cover. We’re all incredibly excited to announce that the latest addition to our twisted family is none other than Ryan Stegman, the superstar artist who has drawn such titles as Amazing Spider-Man and Wolverine, and is currently blowing readers away with his stunning work on Inhuman.
