Edmondson & Gerads Confirm Ongoing Image Comics Series

CA – 20 September 2011 – Information has been leaking out over the last
week about a mysterious new project from a pair of rising stars, writer
Nathan Edmondson (WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?, OLYMPUS, Grifter) and artist
Mitch Gerads (Doctor Who, Stan Lee’s Starborn). Now the duo have finally
announced that their new ongoing action series will be published by
Image Comics beginning in December and is titled THE ACTIVITY.

been working on this since February, and we’re thrilled to share it
with you,” said Edmondson. “Starting this December, the secrets of THE
ACTIVITY will be revealed.”

In THE ACTIVITY, the evolution of
global warfare necessitates the evolution of special forces to rise and
meet the call. The U.S Army has therefore looked to its last secret
special operations tribe, The Intelligence Support Activity, or Gray
Fox. Within Gray Fox is a team of elite men and women whose mission is
flexible, whose technology is bleeding edge, and whose execution is
precise and lethal. They are Team Omaha, and they serve THE ACTIVITY.

been keeping this project quiet for a while now,” added Gerads. “I just
can’t wait to blow the lid off of this whole thing!”

“It’s been a
real pleasure to watch Nathan develop, not just as a writer, but as a
virtual fountain of ideas,” enthused Image Comics Publisher Eric
Stephenson. “He originally came to us with OLYMPUS, but by the time that
was wrapping, he’d pitched us WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? and then followed that
up THE ACTIVITY and another, still-secert project we’ll be rolling out
in 2012. He and Mitch make a great team, too, and I can’t wait to see
where they take this concept.”

THE ACTIVITY #1, a 32-page
full-color action adventure comic for $3.50, will be on sale in stores
December 21 and will be available for order in the upcoming October
issue of Previews.
