THE LIFE AFTER

July 2014

In an infinite city fueled by despair, there is one man capable of breaking free. The Life After tells the story of Jude, a unique man who will fight good, evil, and bureaucracy to escape purgatory and save humanity. Kicking off in July after a special preview issue at WonderCon in April, this dazzling, unique, new ongoing series comes from the deft hands of writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Gabo and features covers by The Manhattan Projects' Nick Pitarra!

With the following art…

Oni Press have been good at printing copies of new comic books well ahead of the publishing date, so folks can get a good look at them first. Is this what they are doing with St. Judes & The Life After on the back of Fialkov's success with Bunker?

Also, maybe it's a good opportunity to get in your retailer's good book for a sneak peek.
