BOOM! Studios has started a new press initiative where they want to focus on the work of specific creators. This week they’ve decided on Ed Brisson of “Sheltered” and his new upcoming Image series “The Field.” Brisson has some exciting new titles on the way from BOOM! that are sure to be a hit with fans of biker gangs or robotic cops. Check out the release from BOOM! after the jump!
Ed Brisson (Sheltered, Comeback) will write the next comics story arc for SONS OF ANARCHY, as the series becomes an ongoing series. Initially planned to be a six-issue limited series, fan response for the comics have been so overwhelmingly positive that the decision was made to extend SONS OF ANARCHY to an ongoing series. SONS OF ANARCHY is based on the ongoing FX Network television show of the same name created by Kurt Sutter that follows the exploits of an outlaw motorcycle club in California’s Central Valley. The show’s 7th season is set to debut this year.
Brisson’s run starts with a new storyline in SONS OF ANARCHY #7 that debuts on March 12, following a six-issue story arc by Christopher Golden that got the series off to a great start. Damian Couceiro will continue to provide art. Brisson’s new story arc is set after the events of season three. Here’s a brief synopsis: “Gemma and Tara must keep the peace on the homefront, as Jax, Clay, and their SAMCRO brothers are doing time in prison. The town of Charming is more dangerous than ever with the Sons of Anarchy behind bars!”
Brisson is no stranger to crime fiction, and is also the writer for ROBOCOP: LAST STAND #8 (which goes on sale on the same day, March 12), in which he provides the epilogue to Frank Miller’s story. (As you may or may not know, our ROBOCOP: LAST STAND miniseries is based on Frank Miller’s unused screenplay for the “RoboCop 3″ film.)
