Published by Image ComicsRumble ran for 15 issues from creators John Arcudi and James Harren. The series is returning after a year-long hiatus with new artist David Rubín.

"David is one of those rare artists who can draw whatever they want to, and that's the reason I've been trying to work with him for literally years," says Arcudi. "He doesn't just draw characters: he creates a complete environment for them to inhabit, for them to interact with. He can make the fantastic absolutely believable this way, and that's exactly what Rumble needs to succeed with the reader. That total immersion, that look that convincingly delivers both the real and incredible, the hilarious and tragic. I don't know that anybody can do that better than David."

While Rubín will be influenced by Harren, he's still bringing his European influences to the book, leaning into German expressionism.

"Imitating James' style is not the best way for Rumble or for me. I think that when John chose me to draw this new stage, he knew perfectly that my style is not the same that James' style, although I think if both are compatible. James' stage in this series is magnificent, and I will try to give my best to live up to it."

The fourth arc by Arcudi and Rubín is set to release December 13.
