’24: Cold Warriors’ One-Shot Coming This Month From IDW
Even though the writer’s strike has forced some shows, such as Fox’s blockbuster franchise hit 24, to play the waiting game for new episodes until next season, that doesn’t mean Jack Bauer fans are going to be left with no way to get their fix. Fortunately, the folks at IDW are stepping up and releasing an all-new 48-page one-shot comic based on the show called 24: Cold Warriors.
The comic, written by Beau Smith with art by Steve Bryant, centers on Jack Bauer (of course) and Chloe O’Brian who are stranded at a remote communications station in Alaska during a huge snowstorm. Unfortunately, snow is the least of their concerns once they discover a plot by terrorists, who are led by a Russian agent from jack’s past, which threatens to bring down all wireless comunications in the U.S.
Both IDW and Fox are excited about being able to release this new 24 adventure while fans wait for new episodes until next season. "Our partnership with IDW has been very gratifying for our division as well as for fans of the show," said Virginia King, Vice President of U.S. Licensing for Fox. "The quality of the writing, the creation of original story arcs, and top-drawer illustrations are all superb and do justice to a powerful show. The graphic novels have helped fill the void as fans await the return of the show to broadcast."
24: Cold Warriors lands at your local comic shop later this month.
