Image Comics has announced that for the first time in eight years, Jonathan Hickman (THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS, EAST OF WEST) will both write and draw an all-new ongoing series, FRONTIER, which is set to launch this November.
A somber science-fiction epic in the same vein as Star Trek, FRONTIER #1 will embark on on a vast, world-building story about utopia lost, and how humanity might just gain it back.
“I’m so excited about this book,” said Hickman. “It’s been a long time coming, and I’m so glad I’m a working cartoonist again. I really think people are going to get a kick out of both what Frontier looks like and where the story takes them. I can’t wait!”
Readers will enjoy a double-sized first issue and each issue in the series will contain galaxy-expanding bonus content like star maps, breakdowns of alien races, interstellar factions, and detailed spaceship schematics.
FRONTIER #1 (Diamond Code SEP160623) hits stores on Wednesday, November 16th.
The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, October 24th.
