Many comic fans (myself included) will tell you the same thing: everything Jonathan Hickman touches turns to gold. Extremely elaborate, meticulously detailed gold. Whether it’s his epic runs on books like Avengers and New Avengers over at Marvel (just to name a few), or his current Image title, the scifi/western masterpiece that is East of West, Hickman just can’t be stopped. And this January, Image looks to catch lightning in a bottle twice with their latest offering from Hickman in The Dying and the Dead.

Check out the official press release and cover below, though you already know you’re pulling it. It’s Hickman… you’re not going to skip it!

The last story of the Greatest Generation
New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, THE AVENGERS) teams up with explosive artist Ryan Bodenheim (RED MASS FOR MARS, SECRET) for an all-new adventure series fraught with mystery, intrigue, and exotic end-of life care in THE DYING AND THE DEAD, coming from Image Comics on January 28.

The adventures begins in THE DYING AND THE DEAD #1 when a murder at a wedding sets off a series of reactions, unraveling secrets hundreds of years old. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly unconnected events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah.

“It’s not often that you work on something that feels almost perfect from day one, but working with Ryan again and how we’re both so in sync regarding the story, it really does feel like it could be something special,” said co-creator Hickman.

THE DYING AND THE DEAD (Diamond Code NOV140534) is a massive, over-sized, 60-page Indiana Jones-style high adventure that arrives in stores this 1/28 and will be available for $4.50.
