IDW Publishing previews Eisner’s “John Law”

by  in Comics News

IDW Publishing has provided CBR News with a preview of their upcoming “John Law: Dead Man Walking” trade paperback. Comics master Will Eisner created the character in the 1940s and new material featuring John Law hasn’t been seen since 1948. This new book will feature 100 pages of new story and art by writer/artist Gary Chaloner as well as 25 pages of classic John Law tales by Will Eisner that have been re-toned by Chaloner. The book will be available in June.

“The launching of the John Law series by Gary Chaloner represents a very important episode in my career,” Eisner said in a release issued last week. “After all, it is most unusual for a character created so long ago to be given new life in the hands of someone so able as Gary.”
