Skybound/Image Comics announced Friday at their Emerald City Comic Convention panel that TECH JACKET will return as an all new ongoing series.
After the tremendous sales of the TECH JACKET DIGITAL miniseries that debuted at Image Expo, Joe Keatinge (SHUTTER, GLORY) and Khary Randolph (Deadpool, Justice League Beyond) team up once again to launch Zack Thompson a.k.a. Tech Jacket into an ongoing print series with a July 2014 release.
“After the success of the miniseries, Skybound was excited to get more Tech Jacket out there and with Khary on board, I’m on board,” said Keatinge. “Whether or not people read the past series, the DIGITAL miniseries, or none of it, they’re in for what’s going to be the biggest scale science-fiction series I’ve worked on yet. Extremely excited to do so with Khary, Robert Kirkman, and company!”
“This project is a dream come true for me,” added Randolph. “Working with Joe, Robert Kirkman, and the rest of the Skybound family has been a blast and I’m sure the fans will see how much fun we are having on this series. If you like action, adventure and excitement then you will love TECH JACKET.”
