CBS' Jericho may not be as dead as you may have thought. Publisher Devil's Due announced yesterday that they're releasing a comic book spin-off of the series, produced by the show's creators.
While Devil's Due haven't said just what format the Jericho comic is going to end up taking, they're definitely talking up the potential. President Josh Blaylock:
"I can't tell you how cool it is for DDP to be able to continue the Jericho story in comic book form... We plan to give fans the story they've been craving. This is going to be epic stuff.
Dan Shotz, the Co-Executive Producer of the TV show, agrees:
Josh Blaylock and the DDP team are great partners and have shown a true love for our show. We are so thrilled about this comic book series and the endless possibilities for the future of Jericho.
Joining Shotz on the creation of the comic are show producers Jon Turteltaub, Karim Zreik and Jon Steinberg, as well as writer/producer Carol Barbee. As yet, no release date has been announced. And it's not clear how this intersects with the still-mooted theatrical movie continuation.
