Press Release: Joe Michael Straczynski writing The Majestic Files for Legendary ComicsA comics news article
Joe Michael Straczynski has an all-new project and he will be writing it for Legendary Comics. That announcement was made when Straczynski thrilled the crowd with a surprise appearance at the Legendary Comics panel on Thursday afternoon at Comic-Con International 2012. The esteemed creator announced that he will be writing THE MAJESTIC FILES, a fast-paced story that looks at the events of the Roswell crash from an entirely new perspective - inside-out rather than outside-in.
Straczynski used the occasion to reveal the first details about the previously unannounced project, which unravels what really happened at Roswell on July 8, 1947 by using real-life experts from the world of politics, science and the military to construct a step-by-step recreation detailing what might have happened, and then using that as the basis for a fast-paced story. Additionally, it was revealed that artist Geoff Shaw (Batman, Grimm Fairy Tales) will be working alongside Straczynski on the project. The title treatment and promotional art created by Shaw was shown to fans and is attached here.
