FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—On the eve of solicitation of the highly anticipated new ongoing series from Fred Van Lente (Conan the Avenger, Archer & Armstrong) and artists Maurizio Rosenzweig (Clown Fatale) and Moreno Dinisio (Dead Body Road) comes news of a second cover of the first issue, created for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund!

Are you Near-Death Experienced? Framed architect-turned-thief Jericho Way has discovered he’s a Resurrectionist, one of a select group of people who can not only remember their past lives, but become them. Two groups are now after his services—the Sojourn Corporation, which wants to exploit his powers for mysterious purposes, and a motley crew of modern-day tomb robbers who have been trying to pull the same impossible heist for 3,000 years—and if Jericho joins them, he may steal back his own future!
Recent praise for New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente:
“Van Lente gives readers just enough of everything to satisfy curiosity without overwhelming while extending an open invitation to come back for more.”—
Comic Book Resources
“Fred Van Lente and his team start off slow, but quickly burst forward in a dead sprint . . . It seems that our favorite barbarian is still in very good hands.”—Newsarama

And don’t forget, Fred Van Lente’s The Complete Silencers and Action Philosophers release in September and October, respectively!
