IDW picks up Jericho license

Jericho Redux

IDW Publishing has picked up the license to produce comics based on the canceled CBS show Jericho.

The license was previously held by Devil’s Due Publishing, who have had financial troubles of late and parted with Diamond Comics Distributors earlier this year. IDW will reprint the three issues Devil’s Due published in a collection called Jericho Redux for $8, due in February, when IDW will also publish the fourth issue. Issues #5 and #6 will follow 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.

The release also says that “IDW and CBS Consumer Products will work diligently to make sure that subscriptions to the original series are fulfilled.”

Jericho, which was about a small Kansas town in the aftermath of nuclear attacks on 23 U.S. cities, ran from 2006 to 2008. The storyline for the comics is a direct continuation of the show.

I can’t wait for the Jericho story to continue!

The comic picks up at the end of season 2 with Jake and Hawkins in Texas with the bomb. Thanks IDW for continuing the Jericho story.

Thank freakin’ god! I loved this show when it was on the air and also loved the comic but this property just can’t catch a break can it?

I wondered what had happened to that comic!

FINALLY! Wondered what was up. It’s been forever. Was driving me …

… [wait for it] …

… NUTS!!!

Yeah!… I loved the TV show and bought issues 1, 2 and 3 of the comic. I was starting to wonder if we would ever see issue #4, so this comes as great news!
