PORTLAND, OR 01/14/2019 — The award winning team of writer Karl Kesel (Superboy, Harley Quinn
) and artist Tom Grummett (X-Men Forever, The Death of Superman, Superboy
) return to their fan-favorite, critically acclaimed series, Section Zero
. The science-fiction adventure is set to launch from Image/Shadowline Comics this April.
Section Zero kicks off with Part One: “Ground Zero,” where readers meet a team of fearless adventurers. Together the crew uncovers the secrets behind UFOs, monsters, and lost civilizations in a story that can best be described as, “Jack Kirby does The X-Files.”
Section Zero will feature alternate covers by super-star artists including Walter Simonson, George Perez, Adam Hughes, Dave Gibbons, Mike Wieringo, and many more!
Writer/inker Karl Kesel noted: “Ever since 2000, Tom and I have constantly tried to bring Section Zero back. Almost two decades later, we finally found a way to finish what we’d begun. The cherry on top is seeing the book return to where it all started—Image Comics.”
Grummett added: “Section Zero has excited me since day one. It’s exciting to see it return home to Image Comics, where it all began. Hang on to something! It’s going to be a wild ride!”
Section Zero #1 by Cover A by Kesel & Grummett (Diamond Code FEB190024), Cover B by Walter Simonson (Diamond Code FEB190025), and Cover C by Jerry Ordway (Diamond Code FEB190026).
