The Dying and the Dead Touted as Last Story of Greatest Generation


Generations come and generations go. What makes them last a little longer is the things they leave behind. It's these things that merit stories and recountings of their impact on society. Image Comics is recounting their own tale that's possibly the last story of the greatest generation in The Dying and the Dead. The story is written by Jonathan Hickman and illustrated by Ryan Bodenheim, with an expected release date of January 28.

"It's not often that you work on something that feels almost perfect from day one, but working with Ryan again and how we're both so in sync regarding the story, it really does feel like it could be something special," said co-creator Hickman.

The adventures begins in The Dying and the Dead #1 when a murder at a wedding sets off a series of reactions, unraveling secrets hundreds of years old. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly unconnected events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah.

The Dying and the Dead #1 (Diamond Code NOV140534) is a massive, over-sized, 60-page Indiana Jones-style high adventure that arrives in stores this 1/28 and will be available for $4.50. Full press release below.
