Kesel & Grummet’s Noughties Sci-Fi Series Section Zero Returns To Image This April
by Olly MacNamee
Karl Kesel (Superboy, Harley Quinn) and artist Tom Grummett’s (X-Men Forever, The Death of Superman, Superboy) critically-acclaimed series Section Zero is to be released by Image Comics/Shadowline. Image had originally published the first series under their Gorilla Comics imprint, but unfortunately that one didn’t last. But, fast-forward to 2019, and the gang’s back together and ready to resurrect a fan-favourite this Spring, with a little help from some damn fine friends.
Section Zero promises to sport variant covers by the likes of super-star artists such as Walter Simonson, George Perez, Adam Hughes, Dave Gibbons, and many more! As you can see from the accompanying covers for the first issue.
Section Zero kicks off with Part One: “Ground Zero,” where readers meet a team of fearless adventurers. Together the crew uncovers the secrets behind UFOs, monsters, and lost civilizations in a story that can best be described as, “Jack Kirby does The X-Files.”
Needless to say, both creators are more than happy with this new venture back at Image Comics where it all started.
Ever since 2000, Tom and I have constantly tried to bring Section Zero back. Almost two decades later, we finally found a way to finish what we’d begun. The cherry on top is seeing the book return to where it all started—Image Comics.
While Grummett adds:
Section Zero has excited me since day one. It’s exciting to see it return home to Image Comics, where it all began. Hang on to something! It’s going to be a wild ride!
Action, adventure, and sci-fi. And from two of the industry’s legends, too, out this April.
