IDW Publishing Launches Jinnrise in 2013
After serving as the official branding of April’s first-ever Middle East Film and Comic-Con and premiering on comiXology, IDW Publishing has announced the 2013 release of Jinnrise. Jabal Entertainment’s virgin comic series, Jinnrise has found a home with the industry’s fastest-growing publisher.
Combining the best of summer blockbuster fare with the weightier underpinnings of “quest myths” like Lord of the Rings, international student Andrew Marcus’ world is torn asunder when interstellar forces, the Kibrani, invade earth. With all hope seemingly lost, what is humanity’s last chance? A long-feared and forgotten race: the Jinn (otherwise known as “Genies”). Thus begins a quest that may answer the question: What is the nature of true power?
With sequential art/cover art, inks, and colors from three of 2011’s top Kubert School graduates, Tony Vassallo, Carli Ihde, and Timothy Yates, and incentive covers from Flag Studios founder Daxiong Guo , Jinnrise is further proof of IDW’s ongoing efforts to expand the creative landscape of the comic industry.Jinnrise also represents IDW’s commitment to homegrown and international comic book talent.
