Warren Ellis & Jason Howard kündigen „Beach Cemetery“ für Image Comics an

Das Team hinter dem viel diskutierten Comic „Trees“, bestehend aus Comic-Mastermind Warren Ellis (u.a. „Karnak“, „Transmetropolitan“) und Jason Howard, vereint sich abermals für einen neuen Sci-Fi-Comic für Image Comics„Beach Cemetery“
Im Comic geht es um einen Fährtenleser, der aus einer Gefangenschaft entkommt und sich an der Seite eines jungen Mädchens, einer Mörderin, durch ein Land voller Verrückter kämpfen muss. Im Gegensatz zu „Trees“ soll der Comic deutlich Action orientierter werden. Die Reihe soll bereits im kommenden September für den US-Markt starten.

Image Comics gab als Pressemitteilung folgendes bekannt:

PORTLAND, OR, 06/12/2018 — Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, the creators of the critically acclaimed TREES (currently being adapted for television), bring a high-speed, mind-bending new series in CEMETERY BEACH—launching this September.​

​Jason wanted to do an action book, so I wrote something that starts with a conversation in an interrogation room, ignites four pages later, and doesn’t stop until the end of the final issue—which he’s drawing right now, so when issue #1 comes out, the whole series will be in the can,” said Ellis. “It might be the most relentless action book I’ve ever written.”

In CEMETERY BEACH, a professional pathfinder, his only ally a disaffected young murderess, breaks out of a torture cell in pursuit of his worst extraction scenario ever: escaping on foot across a sprawling and secret off-world colony established a hundred years ago and filled with generations of lunatics.

Howard added: “In Cemetery Beach, Warren wrote the perfect book for me as an artist. It’s an insane world filled with old future tech, cool characters, big explosions, and enough heart to make you care. It’s the kind of comics I love reading and REALLY love drawing.”

CEMETERY BEACH #1 (Diamond Code JUL180123) hits stores on Wednesday, September 12th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, August 20th.
