Image Comics has announced it will publish The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson by Marc Andreyko and Eddie Gorodetsky.
THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON is a story for anyone who failed publicly, who didn’t prepare for a second act in their life, who hit a wall and didn’t know how to recover. For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punch line. By the time we pick up his story, he is not yet 30 and barely a name in a trivia contest. Faced with a life in a rear view mirror full of lost powers, faded glory, former enemies, ex-girlfriends, and forgotten grudges, Nick struggles to figure out who he is today. Packing on an extra 20 pounds and peering through a medicinal marijuana haze, he is trying to build a future when all that’s left is just a man who hasn’t been super for a very long time. These are THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF NICK WILSON.
If you have ever wanted to write comics, you have to love this quote from Emmy Award winning writer-producer Eddie Gorodetsky:
“After reading comic books all my life, it was exciting to write one,” said Gorodetsky. “I kinda learned to write scripts by imagining comic panels in my head like instant storyboards, and it was really exciting to actually make one and work with artists and make the world and characters come alive from the ground up.”
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #1 is scheduled to arrive on January 17, 2017.
