PORTLAND, Ore. 12/12/2019 — The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning comics titan Robert Kirkman (Oblivion Song, The Walking Dead) is teaming with Eisner winning artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil), Eisner Award winning colorist Matt Wilson (Paper Girls, The Wicked + The Divine), and letterer Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead), to bring fans an all-new, full color, action-packed ongoing series—Fire Power—which will launch from Image/Skybound in May 2020.

“Getting to create a whole new world with its own mythology and rules is always the highlight of my life. Getting to do that with Chris Samnee is definitely a high water mark in this dusty old career of mine,” said Kirkman. “With a massive cast of characters populating this sprawling globe-spanning epic Chris has proven more than adept at handling anything I’ve thrown at him in the time we’ve been toiling away on this series in secret. Kung Fu, Fireballs, Chris Samnee, crazy action, Chris Samnee, Chris Samnee. What more could I say to get you excited about this book?”

This is the first new project from Kirkman since the surprise conclusion to his pop culture phenomenon The Walking Dead. Fire Power will more than fill a walker-sized hole in your monthly pull list. This new series also marks Samnee’s return to comics after wrapping up his bestselling run on Captain America that concluded in early 2018.

Owen Johnson’s journey to China to learn about his birth parents eventually leads him to a mysterious Shaolin Temple. The students there study to rediscover the Fire Power, the lost art of throwing fireballs. A power they claim will be needed soon to save the world. Will Owen Johnson be the first person in a thousand years to wield the Fire Power?

Je vais acheter du Kirkman. Bah zutalor !


Ouais, j’hésitais entre le Kamehameha et le Hadôken…


La même.

La publication de Fire Power débutera par un prélude sous la forme d’un album complet (et pas un simple « numéro 0 »).
Et cet album sera publié simultanément en France chez Delcourt en mai !

Le lancement de Fire Power aura finalement lieu en août, avec la sortie de l’album prélude.

Ah bon ?? C’est pas le 21/10 ?

Ca, c’est pour les U.S. Peut-être que Delcourt a décidé de ne pas le sortir simultanément en France, comme c’était prévu au début…

Aaah j’ai po vu ! Au temps pour moi ><

D’après les infos de comics blog, la date du démarrage U.S. a encore changé. L’album prélude sortira le 1er juillet et le même jour, le #1 de la série sera disponible gratuitement dans une « Promo Edition ».
