Image Comics has been teasing a big new series with an eye popping creative team. The news finally came out at Comic-Con on Friday. The new story from Scott Snyder and Charles Soule will be called Undiscovered Country. Art will be provided by Giuseppe Camuncoli (The Amazing Spider-Man, Darth Vader).
In Undiscovered Country, readers will journey into an unknown region that was once the United States of America—a land that’s become shrouded in mystery and literally walled-off from the rest of the world for decades. A small expedition enters the former US in search of a cure to a humanity-ending pandemic. They travel inward and learn the secrets of what America has become; each member seeking their own form of truth in the undiscovered country. Snyder describes the book this way, “It’s like Land of the Lost meets Lewis and Clark, with a team of characters we’ve already come to love as family. Speaking of teams, I’m honored and thrilled to be working with this group of creative folks. Cammo not only brings the world of Undiscovered Country to life but elevates every element—whether we’re talking the giant terrestrial fish monsters of the coast or lurking techno-zombies of the northwest… Bottom line, Undiscovered Country is a blast to work on and we’re convinced it’ll be a blast to read. Can’t wait for you guys to see it in full!”
Soule seems quite excited about the project as well saying, “I can’t believe this is my job. Working with Scott, Cammo and the rest of the team—all stars every one—is a dream on a creative level. We’ve got ourselves a hell of a high concept here, and fleshing it out together—filling our sealed-off US with beautiful, insane adventures—has been one of the great thrills of my career. It’s been wonderful to make Undiscovered Country with my friends, and I think it’ll be just as fun to read.”
You’ll have to wait until November 2019 to start exploring Undiscovered Country. Keep checking back for our review this Fall!
