IDW has announced that a brand new comic series based on Samurai Jack will be released in the near future. The series will be titled “, Quantum Jack,” and will feature Jack as he ventures throughout alternate realities. The series will be written by Fabian Rangel Jr. and will be illustrated by Warwick Johnson Cadwell.
Rangel Jr. and Cadwell had this to say about the project.
After getting zapped by an experimental Quantum Ray, Jack is sent hurtling into one alternate reality after another, his memories erased but his spirit intact. If you’ve ever wondered what Jack would be like as the leader of a ruthless biker gang of bounty hunters, you’ll finally have your answer.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be working on new Samurai Jack comics,” Rangel Jr. said. “Samurai Jack is a huge influence on my storytelling… I think fans of the show will dig what Warwick and I have been cooking up!”
Cadwell added, “Samurai Jack has been an inspiration and constant source of encouragement for me since I first saw it, in terms of art, narrative, and just plain enjoyment.”
Variant covers for the comic series will be illustrated by Michael Avon Oeming, Alexis Zirritt, and, Genndy Tartakovsky. The first issue of Quantum Jack will be released this September.
