Jericho to continue in comics…again!

November 22nd, 2010 Comments off

Jericho to pick up at IDW with issue #4 in FebruaryIDW Publishing and CBS Consumer Products are continuing the comic book series based on the cult favorite television show that the fans would not let die-Jericho! Continuing directly from the finale of CBS’s post-apocalyptic drama, IDW will offer the complete Jericho comic series from the original creative team behind the TV show. Debuting in 2006, CBS’s Jericho aired for two seasons, following residents of a fictional, post-apocalyptic town.

“The creators and producers of Jericho are so excited about working with IDW to continue the comic book series,” said executive producer of Jericho, Dan Shotz. “Jericho thrives because of the fans that fight for this story on a consistent basis. We have to thank the fans because they are the reason Jericho is here to stay.”

Kicking off in February 2011, IDW will release both Jericho #4 and Jericho Redux. The specially priced Redux edition will collect the first three issues of the series and prep readers for the continuation with issues #4 through #6. IDW’s Jericho comics will stay true to the original series, offering fans the story they have been waiting for.

Penned by the show’s writers and producers, Dan Shotz, Robert Levine and Jason M. Burns, Jericho Redux is the perfect way for fans to start getting more of the series they love.

“We’re very excited to be part of this universe,” said IDW Chief Operating Officer, Greg Goldstein. “Jericho is a powerful story with a very active fan base, and we’re happy to be able to continue this adventure with them.”

The saga continues in February with Jericho #4, and the series continues monthly in March and April. Beginning with issue #4, the series will be written by Matthew Federman, with artist Matt Merhoff, and Scott West, who will provide covers.

Exclusive 9-Page Preview of Hack/Slash Trailers Part 2

November 15th, 2010 Comments off

Tim Seeley backs his artists 100%. So much so that he’s actually paid past artists for Hack/Slash (his often-hilarious, always gory slasher-hunter comic) out of his own pocket!

Now Hack/Slash is at Image Comics and reaching a much wider audience, after the very popular Hack/Slash: My First Maniac miniseries. And for his next trick, Seeley has come up with a very creative way to pay off the debt left over from his altruism: he’s put together Hack/Slash Trailers Part 2, an anthology comic featuring stories by some of the hottest names in the industry!

Fortunately for us (and you), Image has shared an exclusive nine-page preview of Hack/Slash Trailers Part 2. Check out one page from the following nine stories: “Too Cute” (Chris Burnham and Stephen Molnar), “Campfire Stories” (Scott Allie and Todd Herman), “Equal Opportunity Executioner” (Russ Wooten), “Malice in Wunderland” (Shane White and Dev Madan), “Blood on the Dance Floor” (Kevin Mellon), “Wallow in Death” (Mike Oliveri), “Home, Home on Derange” (Steve Seeley and Jenny Frison), “Deadbeats” (Gail Simone and Chris Moreno), and “Psyche” (J. Torres and Joe Song).

Check it out below!

Also, we think fans around the world are going to enjoy submitting questions to the writer and artist of Serenity: The Shepherd’s Tale.”
