Samurai Jack 01 IDW Preview
IDW

Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack didn’t conclude after its 52nd episode on Cartoon Network in October of 2004. It unfortunately kind of just stopped in the middle of its narrative due to cancellation. Nine years and no new Jack… just jack. That changes this Wednesday, though, as Jim Zub (Skullkickers) and original SJ cartoon series character designer Andy Suriano pick up where the time-displaced warrior’s adventures left off on TV in Samurai Jack #1, the first of a five-issue comic book series from IDW. Tartakovsky himself is even contributing a variant cover, with other covers being illustrated by artists including Chew’s Rob Guillory.

From IDW’s official solicitation info:

Cartoon Network’s hit animated series is back at IDW! The legendary samurai known only as ‘Jack’ is stranded in a strange future ruled by the demonic wizard, Aku. His quest to return back to the past has tested him many times, but now the stakes are higher than ever. Can an ancient relic known as the Rope of Eons finally take him home? Writer Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Street Fighter) and artist Andy Suriano (Character Designer on the original Samurai Jack TV series) begin a new era of samurai adventure!
