Samurai Jack recently wrapped up its 10-episode revival and, if you're like us, you're really going to miss Genndy Tartakovsky’s classic show. Well, IDW Publishing may have a little something that may ease the pain of your longing in the form of a brand new comic book series centered around the universe hoping samurai!
That's right, Infinite Earths fans! Samurai Jack is returning in the pages of his very own comic!
Coming from the creative team of Fabian Rangel Jr. and Warwick Johnson Cadwell, the new series is entitled Quantum Jack and sees the character hurtling into one alternate reality after another after being struck by an experimental Quantum Ray. With each jump, Jack finds his memories erased but his spirit intact.
"I’m beyond thrilled to be working on new Samurai Jack comics," Rangel Jr. said. "Samurai Jack is a huge influence on my storytelling… I think fans of the show will dig what Warwick and I have been cooking up!"
Cadwell adds, "Samurai Jack has been an inspiration and constant source of encouragement for me since I first saw it, in terms of art, narrative, and just plain enjoyment."
The series will also feature variant covers provided by the likes of Michael Avon Oeming, Alexis Zirritt, and Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky.
Quantum Jack hits newsstands beginning in September.
