NYCC 2018: AfterShock Announces Out of the Blue, their Next Graphic Novel from Garth Ennis and Keith Burns
At their New York Comic Con panel, AfterShock announced a brand new graphic novel, Out of the Blue. Written by Garth Ennis with art by Keith Burns, Out of the Blue is a brand new war comic story from Ennis.
The Second World War is almost over, but no one seems to have told the Germans- as Royal Air Force pilot Jamie McKenzie finds out when he’s assigned to deadly shipping strikes along the enemy coast. Flying the Mosquito fighter-bomber against heavily armed targets is dangerous enough at the best of times, but after incurring the wrath of his vengeful commanding officer, Jamie is assigned the most unpopular navigator in the unit- not to mention the least reliable aircraft. Worse still, the commander’s sights are firmly set on Jamie’s beautiful young wife, Beth.
Ennis and artist Burns re-unite after the success of their series Johnny Red, presenting another tale of World War Two aerial combat- featuring skies black with flak and enemy fighters, nail-biting low-level action, and the dark humor of men whose lives can be snatched away at any second… Out of the Blue.
Out of the Blue features colors by Jason Wordie, lettering by Rob Steen, and a cover by Burns. The 72 page graphic novel will retail for $19.99 and be released March 2019.
