After the surprise release of Robert Kirkman and Chris Samnee’s Fire Power: Prelude Volume 1, Image/Skybound, has announced Fire Power will be an ongoing series, with the first two issues set to arrive on June 3rd, 2020.
Here is the breakdown of the creators and issue release dates (so far)
The Eisner Award winning team of New York Times bestselling, comics titan Robert Kirkman (Oblivion Song, The Walking Dead), artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil), colorist Matt Wilson (Paper Girls, The Wicked + The Divine), and letterer Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead), bring fans an all-new, full color, action-packed ongoing series—Fire Power—which will launch from Image/Skybound this Spring. First with the Fire Power: Prelude, Vol. 1 original graphic novel on Wednesday, April 29. Then with the Fire Power #1 FCBD release on Saturday, May 2. And finally with the official single issue series launching with Fire Power #1 and Fire Power #2 simultaneously on Wednesday, June 3.
I really think the simultaneous release is an interesting move, but considering Kirkman ended The Walking Dead without a big announcement, it looks like he wants to continue to shake up the industry.
Owen Johnson’s journey to China to learn about his birth parents eventually leads him to a mysterious Shaolin Temple. The students there study to rediscover the Fire Power, the lost art of throwing fireballs. A power they claim will be needed soon to save the world. Will Owen Johnson be the first person in a thousand years to wield the Fire Power?
Let’s see how everyone reacts when Fire Power: Prelude arrives on April 29th.
