Writer Zack Kaplan and artist Giovanni Timpano (CYBERFORCE, Lone Ranger/Green Hornet), joined by colorist Flavio Dispenza, will launch a new story arc in their ongoing series ECLIPSE this March from Image Comics and Top Cow Productions.
In a world where sunlight burns people alive, newly appointed Solarity agent David Baxter is recruited for a secret mission into the dangerous, sun-drenched wasteland. Meanwhile, a troubled Cielo decides to investigate her father’s company—and the mysterious origins of the killer who didn’t burn in the sunlight.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing more ECLIPSE!” said Kaplan. “The second arc promises more heat, an expanding world beyond the city, deadly enemies both new and old, and secrets revealed that challenge the characters’ allegiances and values. And of course, lots of people burning alive in the sunlight! #SunKills”
“We really can’t wait to show you what we have in store for this second arc,” said Timpano. “If the readers were amazed by the New York urban landscape, they have no idea what waits just beyond the city’s borders. We have just scratched the surface both in terms of story and art. So fasten your seatbelts, we’re just getting started!”
ECLIPSE #5 (Diamond code: JAN170688) hits comic book stores Wednesday, March 15th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, February 20th.
