Jeff Parker has teamed up with BATMAN ’66 artist Sandy Jarrell to release METEOR MEN, an original graphic novel, with Oni Press this Fall.
Here’s the plot teaser from Oni’s press release:
On a summer night, Alden Baylor sits in a field watching the largest meteor shower in human history. What began as teenage adventure becomes something more–the celestial event brings travelers who will change the world completely, and Alden discovers a connection to one of them. How does a young man who had to grow up fast handle the invasion of his planet? Can Alden keep humanity from oblivion?
Parker explains that “it’s a book that doesn’t do the thinking for you, so it’s your call as the reader to interpret why characters make the choices they do.” The art we’ve seen so far looks stunning, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the finished product.
To learn more, check out his interview with Parker about the project over on the Westfield Comics Blog, and be sure to ask your local retailer to lay in a supply with Diamond order code JUN141331.
