NEW AfterShock Series by Warren Ellis‏ & Phil Hester

Breaking news regarding the newest creator to join the AfterShock family, Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan; RED; The Authority, Moon Knight). He and Phil Hester have teamed up with AfterShock to bring us SHIPWRECK a 6-issue miniseries coming to a comic book store near you in October.

Dr Jonathan Shipwright, sole survivor of a very unusual and very secret shipwreck, doesn’t know where he is. Seemingly trapped on an endless road, in pursuit of a saboteur who holds the key to his salvation — or doom. Industry legend WARREN ELLIS joins AfterShock comics with this mysterious and captivating tale full of shock, secrets and surprises.

Speaking to the Washington Post, Ellis said the series “started out as an odd notion in one of his notebooks on a long flight”. Quite apt then!

What we know so far too from that interview is that each issue will have a self contained story all the while the big mystery going on too. Sounds intriguing and we can’t wait to cover it here. Check out the main cover (done by Phil Hester) and the variant (from John McCrea) cover below
