Image Comics Announces Jonathan Hickman's "Frontier"
An all-new series written and drawn by Hickman
Image Comics is pleased to announce 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 will launch this November 2016.
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, 2016. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, October 24th, 2016.
