It’s been four years since the post-nuclear war television series Jericho went off the air, but it found life after CBS through Devil’s Due and later IDW. Following a “season three” miniseries that was eventually completed at IDW, the publisher has announced another installment of Jericho comics for this summer.
Overseen by the original television series’ writing staff and written by Kalinda Vazquez, with art by Andrew Currie and covers by Tim Bradstreet, the five-issue series will pick after the events of season three.
“The greatest fans in the world came out strong for Jericho Season Three: Civil War and we are so thrilled to announce another installment of the comic book series,” said Dan Shotz, executive producer of Jericho, in a press release. “Jake and Hawkins have finally come home to Jericho and we want to personally thank those fans and IDW for allowing that to happen.”
“Working so closely with the creators of the TV show has been a blast, their love of the material is contagious, and one of the reasons I think fans relate to it so fervently,” said IDW Senior Editor Scott Dunbier.
No doubt more details will be shared at this weekend’s C2E2.
