As Grant Morrison‘s run on Batman comes to an end this week, we now get a first look at one of the celebrated writer’s next project. The project in question is Annihilator, from Legendary Comics, and we have the first look at the cover by artist Frazer Irving.
Check out the cover here below, along with the official description of the series.
Here’s the official description of the series:
Hellraising screenwriter Ray Spass has one last chance to restore himself to former glory as he struggles to write a new studio tent-pole movie, Annihilator. The film centers around the adventures of Max Nomax, a sci-fi anti-hero caught in an epic struggle against the authoritarian artificial life form Vada and its chief assassin, Jet Makro.
But when Max Nomax appears in real-life, Ray thinks it’s a side effect of the brain tumor he was recently diagnosed with. Despite all logic, Nomax is real, having escaped from an impossible prison with no memory. Ray’s tumor is the key—it contains all Nomax’s adventures, downloaded into Ray’s head before Nomax escaped.
Ray needs to finish his screenplay in order to get the information out of his head and shrink the tumor. Nomax needs Ray to finish his screenplay so he can remember who he is, what ultimate crime he has committed, how to defeat Vada and save the universe from annihilation – if the unstoppable Jet Makro doesn’t reach Nomax and Ray first.
There’s no release date for Annihilator yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as it’s announced. In the meantime, enjoy the cover and look forward to more info on Annihilator as we get closer to a release date.
