“The Most Relentless Action Comic I’ve Ever Written” – Warren Ellis & Jason Howard Launch Cemetery Beach At Image

by Oliver MacNamee

There’s a lot of Image announcements, so were getting them out to you thick and fast, with the next announcement being for a new series by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard, the creators of the critically acclaimed Trees, who are promising to bring you a high-speed, mind-bending new series entitled Cemetery Beach, coming this September.​

“​Jason wanted to do an action book, so I wrote something that starts with a conversation in an interrogation room, ignites four pages later, and doesn’t stop until the end of the final issue—which he’s drawing right now, so when issue #1 comes out, the whole series will be in the can,” says Ellis, “It might be the most relentless action book I’ve ever written.”

In Cemetery Beach, a professional pathfinder, his only ally a disaffected young murderess, breaks out of a torture cell in pursuit of his worst extraction scenario ever: escaping on foot across a sprawling and secret off-world colony established a hundred years ago and filled with generations of lunatics.

Cemetary Beach #1 (Diamond Code JUL180123) hits stores on Wednesday, September 12th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, August 20th.
