I’m Writing Samurai Jack the Comic Series!

I’m thrilled to finally be able to reveal I’m writing the new Samurai Jack comic series for IDW that begins in October! It’s a continuation of the popular cartoon series that ran from 2001-2004 and the new comic picks up where the TV show left off. I’ll have more details about this project soon, but for now you can check out the October solicit!



Samurai Jack #1 (of 5) — GEM OF THE MONTH (OCT)
Jim Zub (w) • Andy Suriano (a & c)

Cartoon Network’s hit animated series is back at IDW! The legendary samurai known only as ‘Jack’ is stranded in a strange future ruled by the demonic wizard, Aku. His quest to return back to the past has tested him many times, but now the stakes are higher than ever. Can an ancient relic known as the Rope of Eons finally take him home? Writer Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Street Fighter) and artist Andy Suriano (Character Designer on the original Samurai Jack TV series) begin a new era of samurai adventure!
