Samurai Jack Gets Sequel Via Comic Book
« on: July 20, 2013, 01:07:47 am »
While there still seems to no hope of the cartoon coming back IDW has announced that a new comic will be released this October picking up where the series left off http://idwpublishin...m/news/article/2507/

Written by Jim Zub (Skullkickers) and illustrated by Andy Suriano, the new comic will pick up where the series left off, beginning with a five-issue storyline called Rope of Eons. Suriano, who designed characters for the show, reflected on returning to the popular character via press release: “Returning to Samurai Jack is such a personal experience and labor of love for me. It’s like stepping through a time portal back to characters I know as friends and a world that really launched my animation career.”

The first issue of Samurai Jack, which will begin in October, will feature a variant cover by show creator Genndy Tartakovsky, as well as one by Rob Guillory (Chew).

I will be pre ordering my copy hopefully fans will unite and make this sell out so a revamped cartoon might be be considered. Tho not having Mako playing Aku wouldnt be quite the same but Greg Baldwin who replaced him as Iroh has a very similar voice would make a good replacement if it where to happen
