This July, Skybound and Image Comics will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Skybound with a weekly five-issue comic series Skybound X.

Other stories include the worlds of Assassin Nation, Excellence, and Manifest Destiny.
The rest of the lineup of creators is equally incredible, featuring Tillie Walden, Donny Cates, Joshua Williamson, Chip Zdarsky, James Harren, and Daniel Warren Johnson.
