The deluge of announcements from the Image Expo begins with Tech Jacket vs. Invincible, only in digital!
The biggest shakeup to hit the San Francisco Bay Area since the '89 earthquake has begun! That's right, Image Expo has kicked off, and the first announcement is a digital miniseries called Tech Jacket from Joe Keatinge, Khary Randolph, Dave McCaig, and Emilio Lopez. All three issues are available right now on ImageComics.com, and will be available on other platforms later.
UPDATE - Press Release from Image:
TECH JACKET RETURNS TO IMAGE COMICS WITH AN ALL-NEW MINISERIES
The fan favorite returns with a three-issue miniseries
The fan-favorite series TECH JACKET, returns with an all-new three-issue digital miniseries. Written by Joe Keatinge (GLORY, HELL YEAH) and drawn by Khary Randolph (Spider-Man, Hellboy), this miniseries is the perfect introduction to Kirkman and EJ Su's exciting superhero.
“Tech Jacket has always been near and dear to my heart and I’ve been dying to do more adventures with Zack Thompson and crew,” said Kirkman. “While EJ and I could never quite find the time, things work out because Joe Keatinge is a better writer than I am and Khary Randolph is amazing. This book is going to be great!”
The return of TECH JACKET picks up a bit later than the original run. “The original Tech Jacket run was largely about Zach having his role as our planet’s Galactic Guardian thrust upon him, fumbling with this new title, unsure of anything he encountered,” said Keatinge. “Here Zach’s firmly in his position—perhaps even getting a little too comfortable with it—and finding out that being Earth’s defender from what lies beyond is more dangerous than he could ever imagine."
Ravaged by the Invincible War, Zach Thompson needs some time away from being Earth's galactic guardian. But when his vacation doesn't go as planned, Tech Jacket must return to face a brand new threat.
TECH JACKET, issues 1-3, will all be available exclusively for one week on www.imagecomics.com, before going live across all digital platforms. All three issues will be available simultaneously in 2014.
