Image Comics’ ‘Eight Billion Genies’ Issues 1-6 Get Reprints

by Olly MacNamee

Hit Image Comics’ series Eight Billion Genies by Charles Soule and Ryan Browne – recently optioned by Amazon Studios for adaptation – is to have all six issues reprinted ahead of the penultimate, extra-length 40 page Eight Billion Genies #7.

If you’re getting in on this late, here’s what you need to know:

“The Eight Billion Genies comic book series asks, If you had one wish… what would you wish for? Now, what if everyone else on the planet had one wish too? At exactly the same moment, everyone on earth gets a genie and one wish. Eight seconds later, the world has transformed forever…and that’s just the beginning”

And, here’s what Soule had to say about the success of his wish-fulfilment fantasy series:

“Seeing Eight Billion Genies connect with the readers the way it has is one of the great thrills of my writing career so far. Literally a wish come true. When Image suggested reprinting not one, not two, but every single issue so far of the series, I had to stare at the email for a while to let it sink in; thank you so much for supporting this story. Ryan and I are working on the big finale issues as we speak—for everyone who’s been following the genie journey… we will not let you down!”
