Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99

The Twilight Zone, Issue One: Trevor Richmond is a Wall Street investor who embezzled millions and is about to tank the economy. Again. Desperate to avoid the consequences for his actions, he goes to Expedited Services, Inc., which offers to help him disappear and enjoy a life of leisure in a new life. But what exactly is this new life, how much is freedom worth, and what happens to the old life when someone else shows up to claim it? This is the first installment of three interlocking stories that will push the boundaries of The Twilight Zone into new and uncharted territory, a journey that will travel into the past and the future, into murder and revenge and the sunrise of nuclear Armageddon. From J. Michael Straczynski, Hugo-winning creator of Babylon 5, writer for Thor and Changeling and World War Z as well as the 1988 Twilight Zone.

    In talking about the original Twilight Zone not having any two-parters, you miss the fact that the episodes were in multiple acts…so this issue is act one….the time between issues is the commercial breaks.

      You have a great point there Sammy – the only thing that seems off is that I don’t have to wait 30 days for Act II, but instead 30-60 seconds. Of course that means this story is a minimum of three issues.
