Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo Return on November 4th with Exodus: The Life After

Oni Press has announced Exodus: The Life After, the follow-up to Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo’s comedic epic of divine revolution. Issue #1 of Exodus: The Life After will debut on November 4th, 2015, beginning an ongoing monthly release.

In Exodus: The Life After Jude has been sent right back where he started: Purgatory. With no memory of his previous adventures or relationships, Jude’s existence is stark and empty. Yet, just outside his awareness, his friends–including the late, great Ernest Hemingway and a very tenacious preteen girl–struggle to free him. Because in the quest to overthrow God himself, the only person who stands a chance is his son.

Oni Press is pleased to continue the story of The Life After in this new series which will deliver on the promise that began in 2014. The Life After was only the beginning of Joshua Hale Fialkov and Gabo’s boldly unique tale of the afterlife and its machinations. In Exodus: The Life After we will have the chance to learn what’s in store for Jude and his revolution, and see more of fan-favorite characters such as Essie, Hemingway, and Ometochtli.

The first issue of Exodus: The Life After will be available in comic shops everywhere on November 4th, 2015.

The Consultant brings Essie, Nettie, and the kid army into Hell to save Jude and Hemingway. However, the Consultant’s new love-and-flowers attitude melts quickly in the hellish heat, and Essie soon has a fight on her hands.

Writer: Joshua Hale Fialkov

Jude and Hemingway have been sucked into Hell… and it’s surprisingly nice. While Hemingway is seduced by the glamor and fun of the underworld (plus his cat is there!), Jude is whisked away to meet with a devil. When it all goes south, though, it’s up to Nettie and Essie to get them out.

Writer: Joshua Hale Fialkov
Artist: Gabo

Nettie’s reunion with her baby daughter isn’t all she’d hoped–Essie’s grown six years in a few moments apart, and now she doesn’t even remember her mother. Not to mention that she’s the leader of a rebel kid army and hangs out with a giant bunny god all day. Meanwhile, Jude and Hemingway are separated from the group and end up sunning somewhere a little too warm, and the Foreman deals with the repercussions of losing Jude in some not-so-pleasant ways.

The Life After Vol. 1 Exclusives

Oni Press has announced some special details about the first volume of The Life After by writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Gabo. First up, for a limited time only, Volume 1 is a $9.99 comic shop exclusive with an exclusive cover for shops. But, what is the series about?

Jude’s life is nothing special. It seems like every day is just a repeat of the last one, until one day, he meets a woman and can suddenly see into her past — revealing that he is actually in Purgatory for suicides. Now that he’s awake, he and the legendary Ernest Hemingway are on the path to change things in the afterlife for the better. Of course, that might not sit very well with the bigwigs down below or up above. Can just a few people change the course of billions of souls? The first volume collects the first five issues of the ongoing series.

The Life After manages to be poignant, weird, and somehow really funny while tackling big issues like morality, religion, and how to be a decent person. Jude could be any of us, just trying to make sense of his situation and make the world a better place. Of course, his world happens to be the afterlife, and most of us aren’t joined in our journey by the one-and-only Ernest Hemingway and a ticked-off Victorian woman searching for her daughter. It’s a story both universal and completely unique.

In addition to the exclusive release there’s also a Free copy of the Diamond Exclusive variant of the first issue with every TPB purchase and Exclusive #6 Variant only available in conjunction with the TPB for shops that participate. For every trade you order, you can order one exclusive variant of issue six.
