This smashing successful first issue of Glitterbomb has hit the shelves and quickly sold out. Jim Zub’s new title tells the story of Farrah, a washed up, middle-age actress dealing with the nasty side of Hollywood where she is both physically and metaphorically drowning. She meets something horrific and she is unable to control it.
Zub is teamed with twenty two year old Canadian artist Djibril Morissette-Phan, who broke in to the industry in 2015 working on titles like Archie and The Ultimates.
In a recent interview, Zub said; “GLITTERBOMB is a Hollywood horror story about fame and failure. It’s a twisted look at the things we prioritize in our 24-hour celebrity-obsessed news and culture. Sunset Boulevard by way of the Exorcist.”

“Taut, human, creepy s**t. Finding a new angle on the Hollywood meat factory is hard as hell, but this is all kinds of neat.” — Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE)
Image Comics is pleased to announce GLITTERBOMB #1 by Jim Zub and Djibril Morissette-Phan is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with demand.
The explosive new series is the story of Farrah Durante, a middle-aged actress hunting for her next gig in an industry where youth trumps experience. But the shallow, celebrity-obsessed culture she’s drowning in isn’t the only problem—her frustrations are a powerful lure for something horrifying out beyond the water…something ready to strike.
GLITTERBOMB #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website, the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
GLITTERBOMB #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code JUL168779), GLITTERBOMB #2 Cover A by Morissette-Phan (Diamond Code AUG160629), and Cover B by Marguerite Sauvage (Diamond Code AUG160630) will be available on Wednesday, October 12th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, September 19th.
