IDW Publishing is more than just returning to all the properties you thought were awesome as a kid. They've also got some original stuff brewing, including Satellite Falling set to debut in May. The sci-fi themed crime drama gives writer Steve Horton and artist Stephen Thompson (colors by Lisa Jackson) the chance to introduce readers to unique aliens, settings and characters. Satellite Falling marks Thompson’s creator-owned debut.
“Steve pitched a few concepts my way," said Horton, "and the idea of a single human working as a bounty hunter in a place otherwise inhabited entirely by aliens, haunted by her lost love was too good to pass up.”
In addition to Horton’s standard cover for issue #1, retailers can also order a Variant Cover from Judge Dredd artist PJ Holden in addition to a Retailer Incentive Cover by June Brigman. There will be plenty more variants on hand for future issues as well. Full press release below.
