A Washed Up Superhero Faces Life In The Further Adventures Of Nick Wilson From Image In January

by Hannah Means Shannon

Image Comics has announced a new series for January written by Emmy Award winning writer-producer Eddie Gorodetsky and Eisner Award winning writer Marc Andreyko. Gorodetsky’s credits include Mom, Big Bang Theory, and Theme Time Radio Hour with Bob Dylan and Andreyko was the driving force behind the recent collection Love Is Love.

The book will be illustrated by Steve Sadowski and Ian Churchill, colored by Hi-Fi Colour Design, lettered by A Larger World Studios, and edited by Shannon Eric Denton with covers by Pete Woods and Ian Churchill.

The book features a washed up superhero who didn’t plan for a “second act” in his life. After being super for a few years in his early 20s, he’s now not even 30 but down and out. 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”.

Gorodetsky talks about working on his first comic:

After reading comic books all my life, it was exciting to write one. 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.

Andreyko adds:

Working on this project with Eddie, Stephen, Ian, and Pete has been an absolute joy. I’m incredibly proud of the book we’ve made, and I hope fans enjoy it even half as much as we did making it.

Nick Wilson #1 Cover A by Woods (Diamond Code NOV170648) and Cover B by Churchill (Diamond Code NOV170649) will be available on Wednesday, January 17th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 18th.
