IDW Publishing announced today at New York Comic Con that Joe Hill’s comic book miniseries “The Cape” will be receiving a follow-up in the form of “The Cape: Fallen.” The new installment will reunite Hill with “The Cape” co-writer Jason Ciaramella and artist Zach Howard.
“The Cape: Fallen” is not a direct sequel to the original miniseries. According to an interview with IGN, Ciaramella said “The Cape: Fallen” will recount what transpired during the three days series antihero Eric went missing. The idea to fill in those three days came from Howard, but that doesn’t mean a direct sequel is completely out of the question.
“I have a file full of outlines for miniseries set before and after the original,” said Ciaramella. “For a while it seemed like every time I was in my car alone I’d have another ‘great’ idea for how we could continue the story. Some of them I’d still like to do someday, but none of them made as much sense as Zach’s idea.”
“The Cape,” first published in 2011, followed the emotionally broken Eric from his relatively innocent upbringing to his misguided, villainous spiral into a revenge quest in which he hunts down and murders people who he believes wronged him in the past. In 2012, IDW released “The Cape: 1969,” a four-issue prequel series from Hill, Ciaramella and artist Nelson Daniel, who colored the original “The Cape” series over Howard.
