Resurrection (Oni Press – Guggenheim / Dumeer / Dabbs )
“In development as a major motion picture from Universal Studios!
There is life on other planets. They invaded ours. Pillaging Earth for a decade. Then they vanished without explanation.
THE END WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING…
The science fiction saga that explores the aftermath of Earth’s most brutal conflict starts here! For ten years the alien invaders have laid waste to our planet, but now they’ve vanished, leaving the survivors with two questions–“Where did the ‘bugs’ go?” and “Where does humanity go from here?”
It’s big existential questions, edge-of-your-seat alien-fueled intrigue, and epic thrills in this collection of the original seven installments of Resurrection! (Includes issues 1-6, plus the 2008 Annual.)
Resurrection: The Insurgent Edition collects all of the black-and-white Resurrection material in conjunction with the launch of the new full color ongoing series that’s now in development as a major motion picture with Universal Studios. Created by noted writer and producer Marc Guggenheim (TV’s Eli Stone, Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man) and featuring moody art from newcomers David Dumeer and Douglas Dabbs, this book picks up where all the other alien invasion stories end”
Yep, this is a book that flew under my radar. This is the problem of being on a comic budget. Seriously, how many great comics are there out there that I’m not getting because I’m stuck with my thirty-five dollars a month? I’m guessing a few, but I know Resurrection is one of them. This is the book that AICN says “gives THE WALKING DEAD a run for it’s money.” It is that good!
With this story being developed for Hollywood, don’t disappoint your friends when they ask about Resurrection and you don’t know about it. Go out on Wednesday and pick it up. You’ll thank me.
