Chip Zdarsky’s ‘Public Domain’ Coming To Image As An Ongoing Series

by Olly MacNamee

Writer/artist Chip Zdarsky will be reappropriating his Public Domain series originally published in his “It’s Chip Zdarsky’s newsletter, okay?,” as a comic book series courtesy of Image Comics as an ongoing title.

“Public Domain follows Syd Dallas, the legendary comic book artist responsible for pop culture’s greatest hero: THE DOMAIN! But his sons Miles and David have a complicated relationship with both the creation and their creator. Can they convince their dad to fight for their family’s legacy?

This thought provoking series shines a light on the all-too-common battle between creators and corporations in a world where the billion-dollar creations dominate the cultural landscape. It also marks Zdarsky’s return to fully illustrating a series since the end of the beloved Image Comics title Sex Criminals.

Zdarsky spoke more about this new series with Comic Book Resources. :

“I’ve been itching to draw a new series for a while now, and Public Domain was the perfect subject matter for me to tackle. Publishing the instalments through my Substack has been an amazing experience, but everyone kept asking me, “when will we get physical?” I greatly misunderstood the question and blocked a lot of people on Twitter. But now I understand and am thrilled that Image is going to be printing Public Domain!”

Public Domain #1 will be available at on Wednesday, June 29th, but catch a first look now:
