Image partner and Skybound chief Robert Kirkman is gearing up for another series. Though Die!Die!Die! and Oblivion Song have not (yet) reached the highs of The Walking Dead or Invincible, his upcoming Fire Power may finally be the thing that catches the elusive lightning in a bottle once more. Teaming with the great Chris Samnee on art, Kirkman and Skybound are going all out for this, with a prelude graphic novel releasing in late April, then a FCBD special, and then both the first and second issues on June 3rd. Get ready to see a lot more of this series in the coming months.
FIRE POWER #1 & #2 WILL HIT STORES IN JUNE—FOLLOWING THE FCBD EDITION IN MAY
PORTLAND, Ore. 01/23/2020 — The FCBD edition of Fire Power #1 will be unleashed on Saturday, May 2. Following a month of anticipation, Fire Power #1 and Fire Power #2 will be available for sale on Wednesday, June 3.
The Eisner Award winning team of New York Times bestselling, comics titan Robert Kirkman (Oblivion Song, The Walking Dead), artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil), colorist Matt Wilson (Paper Girls, The Wicked + The Divine), and letterer Rus Wooton (The Walking Dead), bring fans an all-new, full color, action-packed ongoing series—Fire Power—which will launch from Image/Skybound this Spring. First with the Fire Power: Prelude, Vol. 1 original graphic novel on Wednesday, April 29. Then with the Fire Power #1 FCBD release on Saturday, May 2. And finally with the official single issue series launching with Fire Power #1 and Fire Power #2 simultaneously on Wednesday, June 3.
This is the first new project from Kirkman since the surprise conclusion to his pop culture phenomenon The Walking Dead. Fire Power will more than fill a walker-shaped hole in your monthly pull list. This new series also marks Samnee’s return to comics after wrapping up his best-selling run on Captain America that concluded in early 2018.
