Reed Gunther is coming to Image Comics

In a recent Angry Koala Gear post, we had a sneak peek of a Reed promo coming to Image Comics, "Just One of the Guys". Well Image Comics announced today who Reed is. Reed Gunther created by Shane and Chris Houghton will be coming to Image Comics and bringing Reed Gunther in full color for the first time , beginning this June. I really enjoyed the first two Reed promos that Image Comics released last week and made me very curious who Reed was. I am just curious, is Reed Gunthers from Tucson, AZ? The Angry Koala Gear crew hope so because we might be able to run into him one day here in town. 

Here is the Press Release, Image Comics released today

Shane and Chris Houghton Bring Their Grizzly-Riding Cowboy to Image Comics in June

Berkeley, CA - 1 March 2011 – REED GUNTHER, the fun all-ages western adventure created by brothers Shane and Chris Houghton will soon be available in full color for the first time through Image Comics, beginning this June. The creators' originally self-published five-issue miniseries will then be followed by an all-new series chock full of the same wild antics fans expect from their favorite hapless cowboy.

Whether battling supernatural monsters, tracking down slimy villains, or catching a runaway train, REED GUNTHER has already won many fans over with its good-natured wit and rambunctious style. Comic Book Resources gave an enthusiastic recommendation: “If you truly want to read a comic that is good, clean fun, completely unhinged from continuity, crossovers or company agendas, then do yourself a favor and pick this book up.”

“Chris and I were physically carrying new issues of REED GUNTHER to our local comic shops to be sold," said writer Shane Houghton of the brothers' decision to move to Image Comics. "We are incredibly excited to be working with Image, who can help us spread our goofy, wild adventures of cowboys and monsters to a wider audience.” 

“Publishing through Image allows us to release our original series in color, something we had always wanted to do," added illustrator Chris Houghton. "Watching Reed ride Sterling into the sunset is going to be that much more spectacular now in color!" 

REED GUNTHER #1, a 32-page full-color all-ages western comedy for $2.99, will come galloping full speed into a comic store near you on June 1, 2011. For more information on Reed Gunther, Sterling, and all their unruly friends and foes, visit www.reedgunther.com.
