SDCC 2022: ComiXology Returns With A Celebration Of Scott Snyder And His New Wave Of Digital First Titles

by Olly MacNamee

Comixology is returning to SDCC 2022 with a celebration of their ongoing partnership with writer Scott Snyder.  Scottober: West Coast Edition, will be a major focus for comiXology at San Diego this year as July 19th will see the simultaneous debut of the next wave of Comixology Originals creator-owned titles from Snyder along with his collaborators and co-creators all edited by veteran comics editor Will Dennis.


“These three series are some of the most ambitious comics I’ve ever been a part of creating. They run the gamut from romance, to western, to all ages adventure, and each one is a singular passion project, developed from the ground up with an incredible partner. Tula, Dan and Jamal are co-creators in the truest sense, and I couldn’t be prouder – or feel luckier – to be teamed up on these. Don’t miss them!”  – Scott Snyder

The new titles debuting July 19th are:

Barnstormers #1 (of 5) written by Snyder with art by co-creator Tula Lotay colors by Dee Cunniffe and letters by Richard Starkings

“A high-flying adventure romance set at the height of The Roaring Twenties. This Bonnie and Clyde romp brings together writer Scott Snyder and the breath-taking illustrations of Tula Lotay — her longest sequential work to date.

Meet Hawk E. Baron – a pilot fresh from the airfields of the Great War who supports himself by taking civilians for barnstorming joyrides in the sky for a small fee. But Hawk has a secret, and when an impromptu wedding crash turns into an early getaway with Tillie, the would-be-bride, unexpected new bonds form in this thrilling tale of love…and murder.”

Dudley Datson and the Forever Machine #1 (of 5) written by Snyder with art by co-creator Jamal Igle with inks by Juan Castro, colors by Chris Sotomayor and letters by Tom Napolitano

“A rollicking adventure story about a boy, his dog and a machine that controls time and space! What could go wrong?

Have you ever wondered why all the great figures in history had a pet companion, and if they were all running from the same mysterious threat? Such questions have never crossed the mind of Dudley Datson, a fifteen-year-old with a penchant for invention. But when dastardly foes turn his world upside down, Dudley is going to have to start facing things beyond his wildest imagination in this modern day fable.”

Canary #1 (of 7) written by Scott Snyder with art and colors by co-creator Dan Panosian and letters by Richard Starkings

“It’s 1891 and a mine collapses into itself. But was the collapse an accident, or does something far more sinister lurk beneath the blood and rubble? Find out, in this mind-bending horror Western!

When a horrific shooting disturbs the peace of a sleepy town in the Old West, Marshal Holt is called upon to investigate. But as Holt digs deeper, he discovers that evil may just run to the core, and it all seems to stem from a place called Canary.”
