AD: AFTER DEATH by SNYDER and LEMIRE This Fall
I am very excited to announce a brand new graphic novel from Image Comics this fall "AD: AFTER DEATH" to be written by my good friend SCOTT SNYDER and illustrated by myself.
The book takes place in a near future where a genetic cure for death has been developed, and asks the question, what happens next? How does the world and mankind change when death is no longer an inevitability. The story follows one man who was at the centre of this discovery, and the multiple lives he lives as time stretches on and the world changes around him.
AD marks the first time I'll be drawing something of this size that I haven't also written myself, and I'm really excited to be collaborating with Scott. Not only is he one of my best friends, but he has proven himself to be one of the very best writers working in comics with his work on BATMAN, AMERICAN VAMPIRE, THE WAKE and WYTCHES.
You can read more about AD, including an interview with Scott and myself, at NY MAGAZINE
AD will be one of FOUR NEW CREATOR-OWNED PROJECTS I'll be releasing in 2015 along with DESCENDER (March), BLACK HAMMER (June) and PLUTONA (August)
