Devil’s Due Publishing signed a deal with CBS Consumer Products to publish a new comic book series that picks up where the cult-hit television series left off according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“’Jericho’ is alive and well, thanks to the amazing fans who’ve driven us to find new and fresh ways to tell the Jericho story,” said Dan Shotz, co-executive producer of the show. “Josh Blaylock and the DDP team are great partners and have shown a true love for our show. We are so thrilled about this comic book series and the endless possibilities for the future of ‘Jericho.’”
