It was announced earlier this year, but has now been rescheduled for Free Comic Book Day, on May 6th next year.

That's the first glimpse you'll get of Keyser Soze: Scorched Earth telling the official origin of the lead character of the movie The Usual Suspects.

The first story arc is set nine years before the events of the film as a younger Keyser Soze is establishing a narcotics empire during the tumultuous days of Ronald Reagan's war on drugs.

To be published by Red 5 Comics, it will be written by Paul Ens.

Whether that includes likeness rights from (SPOILERS) Kevin Spacey, is not yet clear.
