Emma Rios (Pretty Deadly, Island) is one of Image Comics top art names at the moment, and her work on I.D. for the Island collection was nothing short of remarkable.
Today Image announced the I.D. will be released in a standalone trade paperback collection this June, with the same low $9.99 price point which has made Image’s first-volume trades so incredibly accessible to readers.
Rios tweeted out a picture of the final cover for the collection earlier today, which you can see below.

[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
I.D. TO HIT PAPERBACK THIS JUNE
Emma Ríos (MIRROR, ISLAND) will release her dystopian tale I.D. in trade paperback this June.
I.D. analyzes the conflict between perception and identity through the struggle of three people who consider a “body transplant” as a solution to their lives.
“I.D. and ISLAND brought me back to the place in comics I love the most,” said Ríos.
I.D. TP (ISBN 978-1-63215-782-9) hits comic book stores Wednesday, June 22nd and bookstores Tuesday, June 28, and will be available for $9.99. It can be ordered by retailers through Diamond Book Distributors with Diamond code MAR160635. It can be preordered now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.
PRAISE FOR EMMA RÍOS AND I.D.:
“Ríos shows considerable writing talent to go along with her huge skill as an artist.”
—The Onion’s A.V. Club
“Her art is nothing short of fantastic.”—The Daily Planet
“Emma Ríos’s I.D. is the most promising story here [in ISLAND], drawn in a naturalistic yet subtly unsettling style done in tones of red that keeps its dystopia in the background—at least until it literally crashes through the front door.”—The Comics Journal
