Back in July, Dynamite Entertainment announced J. Michael Straczynski would be writing THE TWILIGHT ZONE, based on the original television show. Today they are ready to announce the interior artist as well as give us a look at some pages.
Guiu Vilanova (DARK SHADOWS) will be joining JMS along with Francesco Francavilla providing art for the covers.
The Twilight Zone #1 introduces Wall Street investor Trevor Richmond, a man who has embezzled millions and is about to tank the economy. Desperate to avoid the consequences for his actions, he goes to Expedited Services, which offers to help him disappear and enjoy a life of leisure in a new life. But what exactly is this new life, how much is freedom worth, and what happens to the old life when someone else shows up to claim it? The first installment of three interlocking stories, The Twilight Zone #1 will push the boundaries of science fiction into new and uncharted territory, a journey that will travel into the past and the future, through murder and revenge, ...and into the sunrise of nuclear Armageddon.
THE TWILIGHT ZONE #1 will be solicited in Diamond Previews November 2013 catalog. Each issue will also be available on digital platforms through comiXology, iVerse and Dark Horse Digital.
Guiu Vilanova, says, "Any new project presents new challenge for me, and I take them on with the best of my intentions at heart. I'm very excited about Twilight Zone, and hope that the fans will be proud of the work. About J. Michael Straczynski, all can I say is that his reputation precedes him, so it is a great pleasure to be able to collaborate with him. I truly believe that we will do amazing work here!" Previously, Vilanova contributed to several atmospheric horror titles at Dynamite, including Raise the Dead 2, Dark Shadows, and Dark Shadows: Year One -- all series with a great sense of dramatic tension and aesthetics that lend perfectly to The Twilight Zone. "It's not a secret that I have always been a great ink lover, using a lot of black in my art. Artists as Mike Mignola and Eduardo Risso are my inspirations."
