LOS ANGELES 04/11/2023 — Today Skybound announced that Fire Power by Kirkman & Samnee will return for an all-new story arc this summer. The high-octane comic series from the superstar team of creator/writer Robert Kirkman, creator/artist Chris Samnee, colorist Matthew Wilson and letterer Rus Wooton kicks off a fifth arc with issue #25 arriving July 26, 2023.
Fire Power will return with a double-sized 44-page story picking up where the previous arc’s shocking finale left off, with readers reeling for the Johnson family. After learning Wei Lun killed his parents, Owen cannot let the past go.
"No lie, Issue #25 might be my favorite of Fire Power yet,” said Amanda LaFranco, Editor, Skybound Entertainment. “The battle might be over, but the war is not yet won, and the tension between Owen and Wei Lun is palpable as the group recovers from the epic finale of our last arc. We’re building to something BIG in these next issues, and Robert and Chris are putting on a masterclass of character and stakes in this double-sized return, you won’t want to miss it!”
Fire Power by Kirkman & Samnee #25 (Diamond Code MAY230222 | $4.99) will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, July 26, 2023.
