Following the cancellation of the series by CBS, fans get their chance to read the further adventures of the post nuclear war community thanks to Devil’s Due Publishing.
“‘Jericho’ is alive and well, thanks to the amazing fans who’ve driven us to find new and fresh ways to tell the Jericho story,” said Dan Shotz, co-executive producer of the show. “Josh Blaylock and the DDP team are great partners and have shown a true love for our show. We are so thrilled about this comic book series and the endless possibilities for the future of ‘Jericho.'”
The original Jericho producing team will be involved in the comic series.
While Jericho is popular with television fans, are those same people going to head to the comic book shop to seek out the new series?Â Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eureaka, and others fit the demographic to make the jump to comics, but Jericho tends to skew toward the older audience.
No release date has been set, but hopefully the word of mouth will spread enough to get the fan base into picking up the series.
