Tech Jacket #1 Teases


Tech Jacket #1 is a special book. Why? Well, ever since Joe Keatings and Khary Randolph announced at Emerald City Comicon that they would team up to work on the book, fans got in a tizzy. That tizzy is about to get even worse, considering the caliber of art just revealed by Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment.

“Getting to bring back Tech Jacket to comics with Khary Randolph as an over-the-top, no-budget-constraint sci-fi blockbuster constantly upping the ante has been been absolutely thrilling to be a part of," said Keatinge. "Khary and colorist Emilio Lopez combine their great skill to create science fiction visuals on a galactic scale, which are set to blow the minds of all who behold them.”

Zack Thompson, community college drop out, a.k.a. "Tech Jacket," and self-titled "Galactic Guardian of the Earth" may have bitten off more than he can chew. A loved one is threatened, a new enemy rises to power, and Tech Jacket must reassess his alliances. Tech Jacket #1 hits stores July 2 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140599.

Droolworthy artwork and full press release below.
