Archaia Comics announced today that they would resume a full publishing schedule this summer. Hit the jump for a look at what the publisher has coming in June and July.

Los Angeles, CA (May 4, 2009) – Continuing its tradition of excellence and a commitment to high-quality creator-controlled comics, Archaia announced it will resume a full publishing schedule beginning in June.

“Our number one priority is to show our commitment to publishing by completing the great stories we have already begun to tell,” said Publisher Mark Smylie. In June, Archaia will release hardcovers of The Awakening and Some New Kind of Slaughter and has committed to put out at least two hardcover collected editions per month, thereafter, for the rest of the year. Making good on this promise, July will see the hardcover releases of The Engineer (which will be offered at an unprecedented $9.99 price point) and the second volume of the Eisner Award-winning Mouse Guard. Collections of the critically acclaimed Primordia and Gunnerkrigg Court Vol. 2 are set to debut in August.

“We’re also moving forward with series that are ongoing, such as The Killer, Okko, The Secret History and Artesia: Besieged,” added Smylie. These titles will pick up with individual issues and eventually be collected into hardcover editions.

“In addition, books like Robotika, Killing Pickman and Titanium Rain, which had just started toward the middle and end of last year, will be relaunched in double-sized formats, with 48 to 64 pages of art for only a $4.99 cover price,” exclaimed Smylie.

“And as the year goes on, we’ll be slotting in new titles we’ve recently signed, like God Machine, Days Missing and others we’ve yet to announce,” the publisher teased.

“This is what we’ve been working toward: Making sure that every month for the rest of the year, our publishing schedule is solid,” declared Archaia President P.J. Bickett. “Additionally, when we commit to a date, we’re going to meet that date. Readers can be assured of two things: First, our books will be on time and second, the same quality they’ve come to expect from Archaia will be matched and delivered in every single instance.”
