Fear Agent Gets a Final Edition
Image Comics will bring Fear Agent—the critically-acclaimed, science-fiction odyssey by Rick Remender, Tony Moore, and Jerome Opeña—back to print as a series of master edition trade paperbacks. Each trade paperback will collect ten issues of the seminal, pulp classic and will feature never-before-seen scripts, variant covers, designs, and concept art.
Beginning with Fear Agent: Final Edition, Vol. 1, which hits stores this April, veteran fans and new recruits alike can experience the whiskey-soaked, laser-scorched life of Heath Huston, the galaxy’s last hope.
Fear Agent first made waves when Remender famously described it as their response to a sci-fi genre that’d “lost its stones.” Heralded as an addictive homage to the popular sci-fi adventure of the ’50s, Fear Agent was the series that catapulted Remender’s reputation for action-packed sci-fi with heartstring-tugging character building. It laid the groundwork for such hits as, Black Science co-created with artist Matteo Scalera, Low co-created with artist Greg Tocchini, and his re-teaming and co-creation with Opeña on Seven to Eternity.
The Fear Agent adventure unfolds when down-and-out alien exterminator Heath Huston stumbles upon an extraterrestrial plot to commit genocide against the human species, he must put down the bottle and resume his role as a peacekeeper…the last Fear Agent.
