Boom! Studios Announces Next Series

Posted by G-Man (30657 posts) - - Show Bio

    
Boom! Studios is adding another new series to their line up.  It sure looks like the comic will be featuring Samuel L. Jackson.  No other information has been released.  Boom! sent us an e-mail simply containing that image along with "BOOM! Announcs..." 
  
I would assume that this is part of the Irredeemable/Incorruptible Universe.  If you've read those then you know the first deals with the world's greatest hero becoming bad while the second sees an evil villain having a change of heart.  If this new series is indeed part of of that world, what will his story be?  Will Mark Waid be writing this series as well?  Who will provide the art?  We'll have to stay tuned to find out these answers.  If this new book is related to Irredeemable and Incorruptible, I can't wait. 
 

Update: 

Looks like Bleeding Cool has some exclusive info. The new series will be called "Cold Space" co-written by Samuel L Jackson and Eric Calderon and drawn by Jeremy Rock.

I wonder if Sam Jackson realises how popular he is in the comics world (not just as Ultimate Nick Fury ;)

Well, the artist that did the cover is pretty good. I could tell that was Samuel Jackson before I even read below. Though, I do wonder about a series written by a celebrity that also is made to look like him. I say that, but I can't really say if I know anything about his writing talent. He could be a great writer for all I know.
