24: Live Another Day will premiere on May 5, 2014 on Fox, but you don’t have to wait that long for the special Jack Bauer comic book from IDW and 20th Century Fox. The comic book series is coming out in April and will pick up where the finale of 24 left off. According to IDW, the comics will lead into the events featured in 24: Live Another Day.
The comic book series was written by Ed Brisson (Secret Avengers) and artist Michael Gaydos (Alias).
“Ed burst onto the comics scene with the sci-fi thriller Comeback, which was heavy on plot and adventure, a style that fits nicely with an established property such as 24,” explained editor Denton J. Tipton says. “We’ve paired the rising star with veteran artist Michael Gaydos, whose draftsmanship and storytelling skills are second to none. Buckle up for a high-octane tale of Jack Bauer’s missing years!”
“24 was one of IDW’s earliest successes with licensed comics,” says Greg Goldstein, IDW President and Chief Operating Officer. “And the show’s stature has grown immensely since then. Returning to the world of 24 in comics, in conjunction with this highly anticipated return to TV, makes perfect sense.”
24: Live Another Day stars Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer and will take the action to London where he must thwart a terrorist attack. The cast also includes Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, William Devane, Yvonne Strahovski, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott, Michelle Fairley, and Stephen Fry.
Fox has a special two-hour premiere set for May 5th at 8pm ET/PT.
