Mark Waid and Barry Kitson’s Empire Continues with an Uprising

Empire Uprising 1The IDW Publishing / Thrillbent partnership kicks off with Empire, the fan-favorite series by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson. In April, IDW will be releasing a print edition of the original Empire graphic novel as well as the first issue of its monthly sequel, Empire: Uprising, that continues the story of Golgoth, the most marked man in the universe.

Empire: Uprising, which is being serialized in weekly digital installments at the Thrillbent website, picks up a year after the events of the original Empire, and much has changed for Golgoth, the first super-villain to conquer the world. The question becomes, can he hold onto his reign—and does he even want to? This exciting debut issue will feature two new covers by series artist Kitson.

The new trade paperback edition of the original, out-of-print Empire storyline will also contain exclusive, never-before seen material from Barry Kitson. This is the story that Golgoth, a remorseless villain whose plans for world domination have won him the planet Earth… and made him the target of every inhabitant.

And Empire is only the beginning! The IDW/Thrillbent team-up kicks into high gear in May with the print debut of Mark Waid and Peter Krause’s Insufferable.
