IDW Publishing ha announced a new series called Pantheon created by Michael Chiklis, Anny Simon Beck, and written by Marc Andreyko.  The series tells a the story of the Greek gods returning to Earth to battle for the fate of mankind.

The five-issue series pits Zeus’s fellow gods against the Titans in an epic battle of good versus evil, and father versus son. Breaking the golden rule of Greek mythology – to never reveal themselves – the gods Zeus, Aphrodite, Pandora, Cronus, Prometheus and Jason return to their timeless battles, as Armageddon nears.

“As a kid, Greek Gods were very real to me, so the chance to bring my childhood heroes and villains to life in the modern world is irresistible,” said Chiklis, a third generation Greek-American, in a prepared statement. “Besides, I couldn’t say no to Zeus. . . no one in the family would ever talk to me again.”

Providing the art for the series will be Stephen Molnar, with the Sharp Brothers providing the covers for the series.  Pantheon will launch during WonderCon, April 2 – 4, 2010 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

  1. Looks like an adult Perseus Jackson series.

    I’ve really liked most of Chicklis’ work, especially the Shield, so I’ll probably give this one a look.
