Titan Comics Announces Garth Ennis' "Johnny Red"
Legendary Preacher Writer Garth Ennis Penning Brand-New Johnny Red series
DEBUT ISSUE COMES WITH VARIANT COVER BY JUDGE DREDD CO-CREATOR CARLOS EZQUERRA
Titan Comics is thrilled to announce a brand-new Johnny Red series written by Garth Ennis (Preacher) with art by Keith Burns.
Hitting stores November 4, 2015 the explosive new series features original adventures of the fighter ace who thrilled millions and rocketed to status as a classic British comic character in the pages of legendary combat comic Battle, bringing World War II to incendiary life in the finest air warfare stories ever told! Ennis and artist Keith Burns are diving right back into the thick of the period action to present the character to a contemporary audience.
Legendary British fighter ace, Johnny "Red" Redburn, returns once more as the commander of the Falcons – a Russian fighter squadron battling the Nazis in the skies over Stalingrad. But dogfighting Messerschmitts is about to become the least of his troubles when the NVKD – the notorious Soviet secret police – come calling.
"Johnny Red achieves a level of historical detail that I still find remarkable today," said Ennis. "Johnny's story is not just one of my favorites but a British comics classic!"
Issue #1 comes with three covers to collect: an art cover by series artist Keith Burns (order code: SEP151621), a variant art cover by Carlos Ezquerra (order code: SEP151622) and a blank sketch cover (order code: SEP151623)
