“I’m really happy to be back at Image,” Ferreyra said. “My career started by working with Kristen Simon, the editor at Shadowline, on Small Gods, so it’s a bit like coming home. To make it even more of a family affair, I created LAZARUS with my long-time friend, co-writer Diego Cortes. These two factors make LAZARUS the most personal work I’ve put out.”
James Lazarus, the titular protagonist, is plagued by dreams of his death night after night. These dreams turn out to be far from fantasy as James discovers he’s truly immortal during an attempt on his life. This puts him on an urgent search to figure out who is responsible for attacking him and why. The answers don’t come easy. As James learns, immortality can be quite painful.
“LAZARUS may be the best work I’ve seen from Juan,” Jim Valentino, President of Shadowline, adds. “I’ve had my eye on him since he came on the scene, so to be able to publish the first work that’s wholly his own is a real treat. In addition, the direction he’s taken his art in this series is bound to turn a lot of heads.”
LAZARUS will hit stands October 17th with a cover price of $3.50.
