Legendary Comics made quite the splash at this year’s San Diego Comic Con with the announcement that they had secured some of the biggest names in comics to create original properties for Legendary. Now we finally get to see what they have been up to!
Written by Matt Wagner (Grendel, Mage) and featuring stunning art by acclaimed 2000 AD & Lobo artist Simon Bisley, THE TOWER CHRONICLES will set a new standard in supernatural action/adventure through a story created by Legendary Entertainment’s Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull, Executive Producer of 300 & The Dark Knight. GeistHawk Vol. 1 features a cover created by Jim Lee.
THE TOWER CHRONICLES explores the history and contemporary adventures of John Tower, a supernatural bounty hunter with a grim and secretive past that haunts his every action. In other words, there’s A LOT more to John Tower than just hunting down monsters. He’s actually on a very dire and personal quest that has taken him to all corners of the world…and spanned many, many years. Like the Jason Bourne movie franchise, the secrets and history of John Tower’s world are revealed little by little over the course of an epic comic-book trilogy.
As Wagner himself describes, “Like a modern-day paladin, John Tower pursues the dark and mysterious menaces that the rest of us has all but forgotten. His deadly quest leads him to confront all manner of ghost, ghoul, goblin and even…the extremely rare vampire. His past is haunted with secrets and part of the thrill is slowly watching the mysteries of his story unfold.”
