Legendary Comics Releases ‘Annihilator’ Paperback Edition

by James Ferguson

Legendary Comics has released Annihilator in softcover for the first time. Available now in bookstores and Amazon, the reality-bending sci-fi adventure comic is written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Frazer Irving. It features a new introduction by actor Christopher Meloni along with bonus materials on the making of the comic.

Washed-up Hollywood screenwriter Ray Spass is caught in a downward spiral of broken relationships, wild parties and self-destruction. Out of luck and out of chances, he’s one failed script away from fading into obscurity. Little does he know he’s about to write the story of his life. As his imagination runs rampant, Ray must join forces with his own fictional character Max Nomax on a reality-bending race to stop the entire universe from imploding… without blowing his own mind in the process.  

“We are thrilled to dive back into this space and give Annihilator fans new art and materials to discover more about the process behind the characters and world created by Grant and Frazer,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics.

Grant Morrison added, “Annihilator is a personal favourite of mine – written to showcase the unique, incredible artwork of Frazer Irving, and as a love letter to the larger-than-life characters and witchy, diabolical undercurrents of Los Angeles and Hollywood, my beloved second home! I hope this softcover collection attracts a whole new audience to our tale of black holes, love betrayed, guerrilla screenwriting, and dodgy deals with the devil!”

In his introduction, Meloni writes: “here is the master storyteller exercising (exorcising?) his restless mind, his demanding imagination and bringing gothic horror sci fi present day futuristic mind bend time bend anti-hero saga…and I know I left a half dozen descriptors out.”

Annihilator is available now.
