TECH JACKET lifts off with otherworldly artwork reveal
June 4, 2014
Issue #1 of the new ongoing Skybound series launched out of unprecedented digital series success
Skybound Entertainment and Image Comics is pleased to reveal early artwork for the first issue of the eagerly anticipated TECH JACKET.
“Getting to bring back Tech Jacket to comics with Khary Randolph as an over-the-top, no-budget-constraint sci-fi blockbuster constantly upping the ante has been been absolutely thrilling to be a part of," said Keatinge. "Khary and colorist Emilio Lopez combine their great skill to create science fiction visuals on a galactic scale, which are set to blow the minds of all who behold them.”
“It’s rare to be a part of a project where everyone is on the same page, and I’m extremely honored and proud to be a part of such a team as the Tech Jacket crew," added Randolph. "This is a book that screams fun, excitement and energy, something that is sorely missed in a lot of comics these days. We’re hoping to bring that back in a big way.”
After the out-of-this-world sales of the TECH JACKET DIGITAL miniseries that debuted at Image Expo, Joe Keatinge (SHUTTER, GLORY) and Khary Randolph (Deadpool, Justice League Beyond) announced at Emerald City Comicon that they would team up once again to launch TECH JACKET #1, the first in an all-new print series.
Zack Thompson, community college drop out, a.k.a. "Tech Jacket," and self-titled "Galactic Guardian of the Earth" may have bitten off more than he can chew. A loved one is threatened, a new enemy rises to power, and Tech Jacket must reassess his alliances.
TECH JACKET will hit stores on 7/2. TECH JACKET #1 will be available for $2.99, you can pre-order it with Diamond Code: MAY140599. Final Order Cutoff for retailers is 6/9.
