Thomas Jane’s Renegade Entertainment is teaming with AfterShock Comics to introduce an all new comic property titled Lycan. with a script by Mike Carey (Lucifer, The Girl with All the Gifts) and based on a story by David James Kelly (Logan, Robin Hood), and Thomas Jane (The Punisher, Bad Planet).
A synopsis of the series, provided by the publisher, is as follows: Year of Our Lord 1777: A hardened band of international big game hunters returning from Africa are shipwrecked off a small British island. In exchange for new supplies and the repairing of their good ship The Calydonian, Lord Ludgate engages the men for a task they are particularly well suited for: find the Berserking Beast that has been eating his subjects, including a group of young Benedictine Nuns, and destroy it.
Jane said, “I am beyond excited to be partnering with AfterShock Comics to develop the universe of Lycan. It’s a story I’ve been wanting to tell for a long time and I’m very lucky to have a great team of creators with David and Mike to bring it to life through the upcoming comic book series.”
AfterShock Media is extremely excited to announce Lycan by Thomas Jane and Mike Carey as well as our producing partnership with Renegade,” said Lee Kramer, President of AfterShock Media. “Courtney and Thomas are a pleasure and also happen to be huge comic fans, so not only is this a creative cue for AfterShock but also happens to be a fantastic partnership as well.”
The first six issues of the series are slated to debut in early 2022. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more on Lycan.
