THE ACTIVITY: NO LONGER CLASSIFIED
Edmondson & Gerads Confirm Ongoing Image Comics Series
Information has been leaking out over the last week about a mysterious new project from a pair of rising stars, writer Nathan Edmondson (WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?, OLYMPUS, Grifter) and artist Mitch Gerads (Doctor Who, Stan Lee’s Starborn). Now the duo have finally announced that their new ongoing action series will be published by Image Comics beginning in December and is titled THE ACTIVITY.
“We’ve been working on this since February, and we’re thrilled to share it with you,” said Edmondson. “Starting this December, the secrets of THE ACTIVITY will be revealed.”
In THE ACTIVITY, the evolution of global warfare necessitates the evolution of special forces to rise and meet the call. The U.S Army has therefore looked to its last secret special operations tribe, The Intelligence Support Activity, or Gray Fox. Within Gray Fox is a team of elite men and women whose mission is flexible, whose technology is bleeding edge, and whose execution is precise and lethal. They are Team Omaha, and they serve THE ACTIVITY.
“We’ve been keeping this project quiet for a while now,” added Gerads. “I just can’t wait to blow the lid off of this whole thing!”
“It’s been a real pleasure to watch Nathan develop, not just as a writer, but as a virtual fountain of ideas,” enthused Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “He originally came to us with OLYMPUS, but by the time that was wrapping, he’d pitched us WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? and then followed that up THE ACTIVITY and another, still-secert project we’ll be rolling out in 2012. He and Mitch make a great team, too, and I can’t wait to see where they take this concept.”
THE ACTIVITY #1, a 32-page full-color action adventure comic for $3.50, will be on sale in stores December 21 and will be available for order in the upcoming October issue of Previews.
