Writer Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies, Archer & Armstrong) has a lot going on these days. After the success of his current crop of projects including the launch of Brain Boy: The Men from G.E.S.T.A.L.T., penning the new Conan the Avenger series, and continued success on the web comic Project Black Sky (which io9 called, “The best superhero comic this Free Comic Book Day…and by a large margin“), Van Lente can now add new ongoing creator-owned series Resurrectionists to his belt.
The series follows the story of Jericho Way, an architect-turned-thief who discovers he is what is known as a Resurrectionist, a person with the ability to remember their past lives as well as relive them. Once his special ability is discovered, he faces aggressive recruitment from both a shady corporate organization and a misfit band of Egyptian tomb raiders. It’s a battle that will cross space, time and everything in between.
Published by Dark Horse with interior art by Maurizio Rosenzweig (Clown Fatale) and Moreno Dinisio (Dead Body Road), and covers from Juan Doe (G.I. Joe), issue #1 of Resurrectionists hits comic stands on November 9th.
